Gained 0.5 of a pound :(

I came pretty close to reaching my goal of 1300.  I was 50 calories away.   Gained 0.5 of a pound but will lose 2 next week. 

 It's been an emotional week, Even getting out of bed seems to be a chore!  I am trying to push through it.  This panic and SAD disorder can get the best of me at times it's extremely frustrating when I cannot  do the things I want to do. 

Went to the "Sleep Doctor" today.  He thinks I have Shift Worker Disorder.  Sigh just other thing to add to my list of things.   My goal is to try to wake up and go to bed at the same time.  It won't be the conventional sleep time that most of my friends are use to but this is the job I chose to work.  Maybe This will even help with my weight loss.

Being sleep deprived makes me do some silly things for example : in the past five days I have locked my car keys in the car while  it was still running and in the same week I left my keys in the door...  Needless to say focusing on my  new sleep schedule could help.  (bedtime: 3am, wake  time at 11am)

Night school is coming to end.  One more month and I will never have to take it again.  And also brings me that much closer to my goal of becoming a Nurse.  

Had a really good workout tonight.  I felt so good afterwards my body was thanking me. 

Time for bed!


  1. I love your "Wellness Vision".

    Sometimes you must take certain steps in order to reach a place of wellbeing and make it fit your lifestyle. You've tried working 9 to 5 jobs and it's not for you . You enjoy the flexability of shift work. The two careers you've chosen to explore require a person that can adapt to this type of shedule. If sleeping for you from 3:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m that's 8 hours of hopefully quality sleep, it's O.K. my little sleeping beauty to have a different sleep pattern.....people need Doctors, nurses in the middle of the night . Restaurants need shift enjoy your new WELLNESS VISION ....and the weight will come off ......."MOM" P.S. as a baby you never like to go to bed early , you were always a little night owl!!!

  2. Joy, one of my friend's wrote this on her facebook...anyways here goes.INVISIBLE ILLNESS: Hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It's a daily stuggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside. Never judge what you don't understand just want you to know I understand so please be kind to yourself ...on those days when that invisible illness challenges you're dong amzing .
