Ten Things Thursday!

  1. I just realized that I am a super bad blogger... I haven't blogged in about a month. Shame on me, I don't have a good excuse. 
  2. My business trip to Atlanta went really well. I found out they are planning on promoting me in the next few months!! That totally made my day!
  3. I wish I was in Chicago right now with everyone...I hope you all have a total blast.
  4. I will be in Chicago in December for work, that should be fun. Although it does sound a bit cold.
  5. I start studying for the CPA exam in a few weeks... I plan on passing all 4 sections the first time around.
  6. I can not believe my year anniversary is in just a few weeks... I wish my stats were better, but I know its a ongoing process. One day at a time.
  7. Next week I am going to see Gotye live!! I can not wait!
  8. Halloween is just around the corner, I am going to Halloween Horror nights in a few weeks. Man I still need to figure out what to be for Halloween. This is the first year I am actually looking forward to dressing up!
  9. I am trying to come up with some fun date ideas... any suggestions? I am kind of bored with dinner, movies, and bowling.
  10. Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

10 Things Thursday!

  1. Now that I am offically done with school... I do not know what to do with myself... how messed up is that.
  2. I start my CPA license on October 16th...While I know its going to be a grueling few months... I know it will be worth it in the end.
  3. I absolutely love my personal trainer, he constantly pushes me to new levels. I am seeing more results in inches than in pounds and I am ok with that.
  4.  I can not wait till College football starts next weekend. Hopefully the Gators will be a little better this year... fingers crossed.
  5. Why do people that you used to date, think they can call you out of the blue for a booty call. No I do not want to do that with you... I havent talked to you in a over a year...geesh.
  6. I am getting a fill today... I do not know why I am so excited by that.
  7. I can not wait for my fall programs to start...there is nothing good to watch in the summer
  8. Anyone from the GA area want to meet up on September 4th or 5th let me know, i will be up that way for a business trip.
Ok thats all I have for now. Have a great day!

Frustration... and a fill.

So in less than 2 weeks, I am heading out of town for an important business trip... and I need to buy a new suit cause the one I have is entirely too big on me and I do not want to look like a total frump in front of all the partners. But for some reason I can not seem to find a suit that does not cost an arm and a leg and that actually looks good on me.... GRRRRRRRRRR! I have been to Macy's, JC Penny, Burlington Coat Factory, Ross.

Does anyone have any other suggestions of places to go?

I am currently in a regular size 16 or a 14 plus.

I really want to make a good impression when I head to Atlanta.

I am going to get a fill tomorrow, I haven't had one in about 8 months, so I am actually looking forward to it.

Hope everyone is having a great hump day!

Friday, August 17, 2012

Hey guys!! I am back!!

Sorry I have been missing in action for the past month.

Life has been super busy, but everything has been great!

I absolutely love the new job! Yesterday was my one month anniversary here. I have gotten praise multiple times, I come home from work happy. Life is good. Wednesday I ran my first variance meeting by myself, the partners were impressed with me :) Next month I am going to Atlanta for two days, so that should be interesting.

Speaking of the new job, starting September 4th they are doing a biggest loser competition. The are doing teams and individuals. The individual with the most percentage lost will win 500 dollars, they are also doing teams as well. I think its exactly what I need to get me into the next level.

Working out with the trainer has been awesome, but I really need to be better about going to the gym, when I don't have training.

Also getting a fill next week, so I am looking forward to that. It has been about 8 months since my last fill.

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Shopping NSV

So my mom and I went shopping today to finish getting new stuff for my new job... Start Monday!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I am happy to report I am no longer a plus size woman... all the clothes I bought were XL tops and a size 16 regular (14W in plus)!!

I also bought a pair of super cute heels for work, I never wear heels and they were super comfy!! I was shocked to notice that my foot shrunk too!! I am now an 8.5 instead of a 9.

Normally when I go shopping I come home with one top that I think is just ok.

This time I actually bought 7 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and a pair of shoes!! Go me!!!

Working out feels good...

Never thought I would say this... but working out feels soooo good!!!

Last night I had another session with my trainer... he tried to kill me and I loved every second of it... I have never sweated so much in my life!

My entire body hurts today and instead of crying about it... I feel good about it even though I cant lift my arms at the moment!

Looking forward to hitting the gym up again on Wednesday!!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Ten Things Thursday!!

  1. I recently discovered I love sushi!! Now I crave it all the time. I actually had some for dinner last night. How unamerican is that? But damn it was good.
  2. Went to the fireworks on the beach last night. I have to admit I didn't want to go at first cause usually it is not any fun being stuck in traffic for hours. But this year it was really nice. In the location we were sitting on the beach, not only did we get to see our fireworks, but we got to see the fireworks going on at 3 other beaches. It was really nice!
  3. 6 more work days until I am done with this job. I have so much work to do but no motivation to do it. I think I have mentally checked out already.
  4. Tonight is my first real appointment with my personal trainer. I am really looking forward to it.
  5. Two different friends got engaged last night... seems like love is in the air in South Florida.
  6. I currently look like your friendly lobster... I can not believe I did not put sun block on.
  7. Seems like the older i am getting, the more I am realizing that people I thought were good friends, really are not.... Seems like i am having a summer clean out of people in my life.
  8. Tomorrow night we are having game night at our house... I can not wait... seems like it will be a lot of fun!
  9. I really want to go on a cruise to Jamaica... I am going to try and make this happen if it kills me... LOL
  10. Happy Thursday!!! One more day to go and then the weekend is here!

Working out and speeding tickets.

What a day yesterday... I realized that I forgot to go to driving school for the accident I had in March... I missed driving school by 1 day. So I called the clerk of the court... they told me that my license was already being processed for suspension. In order to avoid it I had to pay $41 dollars and I could no longer go to driving school, so I was going to get 4 points on my licnese. Bah humbug.. I have never had points on my license.

Later that evening, I went to the gym and had my personal fitness evaluation with my trainer... boy am I out of shape. Good news is I love my new trainer... I have a feeling he is going to whip my booty in shape. They gave me a list of foods. Off that list I had to pick 20 of my favorite things. So they are going to make a meal plan for me, and I have a fitness evaluation once a month. After the evaluation I went and did 35 minutes of cardio... man did it feel good to be working out again. My next session is on July 4th... that will be when he really works me out... I think this is going to be really good for me, accountability is exactly what I need.

So this morning I was running late to work, and I completely forgot about the speed trap I pass every single day. Well they got me this morning. I was so upset especially after yesterday's events of the other ticket.
Since I elected to go to driving school, even though I didnt go for the other ticket. I am not able to attend driving school for this ticket. So I either have to take my chance in court or get more points on my license.
God I feel like such an idiot today.

Saturday, June 30, 2012


So I went shopping today for some new work clothes!! I am happy to say I am now a size 14!!


Thursday, June 28, 2012

10 Things Thursday!

  1. I have been bowling a lot lately... I even bought my own ball. You would think however I would be getting better. But that doesnt seem to be the case... LOL last night I bowled crappy... at least I finally won a game against my other half.
  2. I feel so much better now that I have given notice... July 16th starts the a new chapter in my life!
  3. There might be a slight chance I will be able to go to Boobs... Hopefully I can find a roommate at the last minute... since I will probably not know for sure until August.
  4. I am really looking forward to seeing 311 next month and Goyte in October. It has been a while since I have been to a good concert.
  5. The scale is finally starting to budge now that I am tracking food again. YAY me... feels good to be back on track.
  6. August 7th is graduation day... YAY I am almost done!!
  7. I start studying for my CPA license in September...I am hoping i pass each section the first time around.
  8. I am going to see Magic Mike tomorrow... who cares what the movie is about when you have massive eye candy to look at!
  9. I have recently done an inventory of my friends... some come and go and some were meant to be there forever. I am grateful for the friends I have... and sad for the ones that have gone recently.
  10. I cant wait till the weekend!! Hope everyone has a great one :)

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

So tired of this place...

So i grew a pair of balls and gave notice. It went better than I expected... I did feel rather bad though cause in the past month 1 person got fired, 1 person left to go back to school, 1 person walked out, 1 person is leaving at the end of July to relocated and now I am leaving in 2 weeks too... oh well felt like I was kicking her while she was down.

Anyway... I asked my boss to let me break the news to my friend Jennifer, who is one of my bosses, who actually got me the job here. I wanted to explain to her my reason for leaving. She is out of the office today cause she is jury duty. I texted her and asked her to call me when she was done...she texted me back I already know.

WTF? Thank you for letting me tell her my damn self. GOD I hate this place... if it wasnt such a straight up gossip mill or the boss playing favorites then maybe you wouldnt have so many employees leaving. The mangers have been here for years... but the auditor position seems to be a revolving door.
I swear if I lose a friendship over this I am going to be very upset.

New Chapter

I am so excited about the new chapter of my life that begins in just over two weeks!!

I cleaned out my closet yesterday... and realized that I look like a frumpy mess in everything I own. So this weekend I am going to start shopping for my new job. Going to hit up the good will and a few other places that I have gift certifcates too. I have been trying to use them since my birthday in December but I can not find anything that fits well or that I like.

So if anyone has some size 16 work clothes that they would like to donate...hit me up. I will totally pay for shipping!

Happy Hump Day!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I start on July 16th, I will be the assistant controller at a medium sized Real Estate firm!!

I am so excited. Now I just have to give my two week notice....  I am so excited and yet so nervous!! I hope this new chapter of my life is amazing and that the grass is actually greener on the other side!

Weekend recap

All weekend was a torrential down pour in South Florida... So Friday night, a few of my friends came over and we had game night at my place. We played clue, monopoly, life, and uno and had a great time. By the way I kicked some major ass at monopoly... woo hoo!

Saturday I had to work all day... bah humbug and then went bowling at night... had a good time. I recently bought my own bowling ball...and I am finally starting to have a more consistent game, however its nothing to write home about.

Sunday, I woke up early cooked my man a nice birthday breakfast of french toast, sausage and eggs. Watched a movie and cuddled and then took him out to dinner with about 8 other friends. It was really nice, except the weather completely sucked. We managed to have a good time anyway.

Monday Morning was my interview. I think it went really well. The company seems amazing. The guy that interviewed me was really nice too. Seems right up my alley... God I hope they call me back. I would get a big fat raise, still get my CPA license, work back in Real Estate and not have to be an auditor.... so cross your fingers for me.

On the weight loss front... I have not lost or gained any weight since I moved into the new place. I am starting to work out this week, so thats a good thing...trying to debate on if I should get a fill or not. I am hungry more often then before. However, I am still getting stuck a lot. So I cant decide if its a good idea or not.

Hope everyone is having a good week :)

Friday, June 22, 2012

Five things Friday

  1. I have a job interview on Monday... I really want this job, it is right up my alley!! It is an assistant controller position for a Real Estate company. YAY I get to use more than 1 degree at this place... hehehe.
  2. Things are getting so bad at my current office that someone walked out last night... I can not wait till it is my turn, however... I would never just quit like that.
  3. My mom made good on her promise... starting next week I start going to a trainer twice a week.
  4. I am really looking forward to my boyfriends bday party this weekend... :)
  5. I have been bowling a lot lately... like twice a week. I even bought my own bowl... cant wait till tonight.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Friday, June 15, 2012


So glad that Friday is finally here and I get off work early today... I have had a really really bad week on the work front. Things just seem to get progressively worse. I have applied to 25 jobs this week and I pray that someone calls me back ASAP. If not I might just kill someone.

My poor boyfriend has dealt with a cranky version of me all week... I come home from work almost in tears every day... its just not good.

My food choices have been pretty good, but the scale is not budging. Probably because of all the stress.

Hope everyone is having a good day!!

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Friday, May 18, 2012


Anyone know what day it is? I don’t have to tell you – do I? Fine. Fine. It’s FRIDAY!!! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer five little questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. What religion were you raised as a child, if any, and are you still a member of that faith today? Why or why not?

I was raised Catholic... but no I am not a member of that faith today.

I was the only one in my family that didn't receive communion.... That tells ya how often my parents made me go to Church.

2. Do you have an all time favorite candy or do you change favorites often?

Anything with Chocolate and Peanut Butter.

3. Are you a green thumb? Do you landscape your yard or plant any flowers or a garden? Do you pay someone to do it for you? Do you not plant a single thing?

I have a black thumb... I cant even keep a cactus alive.

4. Let’s just say you were a tattoo junkie and you were planning your next tat and it had to be words only. What words would you choose? A quote? Phrase? One word? Would you do it in English or a different language?

My next Tattoo is going to be Japanese Kanji... The Quote says Respect the Past Create the New.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week.

My week has been pretty busy... Work is crazy as usual due to deadlines and home life is hectic as I am packing and getting ready to move next week.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Friday, May 11, 2012


It’s Friday fun day! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog if you so desire and have fun!

1. Are you a “wake up on the first beep of the alarm clock” or a “hit the snooze button 50 times before you get up” kind of person? Is your alarm clock set to the right time?

hahahah funny.... I set two alarms and I usually snooze it at least twice.

2. Do you decorate for any holidays other than Christmas?

My old roommate decorated for every holiday there was... However, I usually only decorate for Christmas.
I am not super girly... so decorating for Chrstimas takes a lot.

3. Would you consider yourself a spontaneous fly by the seat of your pants kind of person or a massive OCD controlling planner kind of person or someone in between?

I am somewhere in between... work and school I am seriously OCD. I make plans too for the weekend but if something comes up or if we are out having fun and want to do other things... I kind of just go with the flow.

4. Tell me some of your MUST have hair products that you use consistently….you know - share your “hair routine”.

During the week... my hair goes up in a ponytail... usually wet.
During the weekend, I will straighten my hair. The only thing I always use in it is biosilk.

5. Repeat question: How was your week and what are your upcoming weekend plans?

My week was pretty good... A little stressful with the move... My roomie was a pig when she was paking up her stuff... and some points you could barely walk through the house. Work was crazy as someone got fired. Which through us all for a loop. But next week we have tuesday off and we are going to have a team building BBQ. So that should be fun.

Going out of town this weekend to see my boyfriends mom. So that should be fun. His parents live in the town that I went to College in... so I am going to get to see some old friends too!

Weigh in Day!!

Five things Friday...

So I missed 10 things Thursday... and could only come up with five things... so here is five things Friday...

  1. I just found out that when I graduate in August. I will be graduating Summa Cum Laude!!
  2. My roommate moved out last night… its weird being in an empty place. 2 weeks left and its my turn to move.
  3. Class starts Tuesday, I am looking forward to starting my last class… woo hoo! Thank god its online I don’t even have to leave the comfort of my own home to go to school this summer.
  4. I am going out of town this weekend to see my boyfriends mom for mothers day… I am looking forward to getting away for a few days.
  5. My mom is crazy… I went to visit her last night for mothers day… I give her a gift… then she gives me things she bought for my new place… Why must she always do stuff like this on her holidays.

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

What would you do?

So my mom gave me a little food for thought today...

I have a lot going on in my life recently, with moving, and finishing school and the CPA exam.
So orginally my mom offered to help me pay for BOOBS. Although today she said she would rather pay for 6 months of a personal trainer for me at twice a week. She told me the choice was up to me. But man that is a really hard choice.

Do I have a fabulous weekend with all of you lovely ladies... that I really want to meet.

Or take my booty to the gym with a personal trainer for 6 months.

In the 7 months I have had the band, I have not really worked out because of the car accident, but I just got the go ahead from my doctor yesterday.

Decisions... Decisions... What would you do?

Monday, April 23, 2012

Need some advice...especially if you are a CPA!

I am currently working on my Accounting degree... I have one more class and then I am done!! WOO HOOO!

My goal after graduation was to get my CPA license. In the state of Florida in order to get your CPA license you need 150 hours of schooling which I will have when I am done and 1year experience working under a a licensed CPA. After you take and pass the test you have 3 years to complete those requirements.

I started my current job in order to get my experience. I have been here for 15 months. However, I recently found out that your year does not begin until you are eligible to sit for the exam... which I was not able to sit until this past December. So I only have 4 months of the 12 months of experience I need.

Well if you read my blog... you know I absolutely hate my job... I was not meant to be an Auditor for the rest of my life. Headhunters keep calling me with all of these amazing job offers doing what I know best. Property Accounting. The problem is that none of these companies have a CPA working for them.

So do I work at my current job for 8 more months of complete misery... Or do I take another job... and figure out later when I can get the rest of my experience?

I was hoping the next job I take would be my last job... or at least somewhere I can stay for a long time...

Any suggestions? I am having a really hard time with this decision and I don’t know what to do.

Weekend NSV!

So a few months ago... Stephanie gave me size 16 Jeans!! I didn't think I could fit into them yet, but then I noticed that the jeans I was wearing on Saturday were way too big for me... Like had I work them out in public I would have been sporting some serious plumbers crack... So I decided to try on the jeans she gave me and man they fit perfectly!! It was really nice to see myself go from a size 20/22 to a size 16!

Also my boss told me on Friday that it was time for some new work pants. So instead of going to buy expensive pants like I always do, I tried to Goodwill. Normally I get really discouraged as everything there is either too big or too small. But not this time. I was able to find a nice pair of workpants for 3 bux!! Woo hoo!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

10 Things Thursday!

  1. I recently turned in a 12 page paper about pension plans. It was the worst paper I have ever written in my entire life… Somehow I got an A. I am thinking my professor did not read it. Thank god!
  2. Yesterday was my last class for the semester… Next week is finals time!! So happy to have a break.
  3. My lease is up in 6 weeks… and I am freaked out that I have not found a place yet.
  4. I was recently awarded a scholarship for Graduate School… I really do not know what to do. I do not think I can handle another year and a half of school. I am so burnt out.
  5. So I thought work was going to mellow out after 1st quarter deadlines… ,man I was wrong. I think one of my supervisors is out to get me. She loves to pick on me.
  6. What ado you do when your boyfriend does not like one of your friends? Someone who has been your friend for 9 years. Do you hang out with them anyway? Or what? This has never happened to me before so I feel quite weird about it.
  7. My weight loss is completely stalled out this week… and its really frustrating. Funny how when you eat well the scale does not want to budge.
  8. I really need a vacation… any ideas on where to go?
  9. The older I get the grayer my hair is getting… pretty bad when I am 31 and my hair is growing in white… ACK! Can not wait to get my hair done next week. Will post poctures!
  10. Happy Thursday!! Time to get back to work!

1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?

I have never really thought about it actually, since I dont have children. I am thinking at least by middle school.

3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?

Sleek and Shine from my hair dresser.

4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?
I get a pedicure done... I usually like to go dark on my toes.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!

This week was good... I hit my goal I set for myself this month, I finally got into the class I need for graduation. Work has calmed down and WW3 ended with my roommates.

  4. World War 3 is currently happening in my house. I feel like I am stuck in the middle of a bad reality show!
  5. I lost 2 lbs this week!! WOO HOO! Feels good for the scale to be moving in the right direction after it stalling out for so long! I might actually reach my goal I set for myself.
  6. I am really looking forward to Easter dinner at my mom’s house. It has been a while since she has hosted a holiday dinner.
  7. My neck is starting to feel better from the car accident. This means I am totally going to the gym tonight!
  8. I went out last night to blow off some steam… Although I had a really good time. I am super tired this morning L
  9. I have a 20 page paper due in less than 2 weeks and I haven’t even started it… god I am a slacker.
  10. Things are finally starting to be really good with my boyfriend. I think the adjustment period of moving in together is finally over!! Apartment hunting on the other hand is not fun… we can’t seem to agree on where we want to move!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Make a list Monday!!

We all have this secret dream……. What are the first ten things I would do if I WON THE LOTTERY?  Admit it, you think about it, even if you don’t play.  Let’s make it a fun amount too since this is all make believe anyway.

List the first ten things you would do if you cashed in a winning lottery ticket for $200,000,000.00 (after taxes).

  1. I would pay off all of my debt… and finally be rid of my student loans.
  2. I would also pay off all of my mom’s debt, so she wouldn’t have to worry.
  3. Buy my boyfriend a car… lord knows he needs one.
  4. I would also buy my dream car… Mustang Shelby here I come!
  5. I would quit my job and travel. First place I would go to is Italy and Greece.
  6. I think I would get my masters degree… I said I would do it if I could pay cash for it.
  7. Also I would put my boyfriend through culinary school. He is an amazing cook, but could never afford to go.
  8. Invest some money for the future and for my future children.
  9. Hire a personal trainer to whip my ass into shape.
  10. Donate some money to charity.

5 Month Bandiversary...

Can not believe it has been 5 months already. Where has all the time gone.

I am not currently happy with my STATS. As my scale broke last week and I had to get a new one. It showed a gain of about 4 lbs. So therefore I did not meet all the goals I set for myself last month. I did however meet the goal of tracking my food intake.

I am considering doing the pouch test to get back to the basics. As I am not able to work out at the moment due to the neck injury from the car accident. Maybe during this time I will just walk.

So as of month 5 I am down 32.8 lbs...

My goals for this month is to loose at least 7 lbs.
Continue tracking my food intake every day.
Get some kind of exercise in at least 3 times per week.

Monday, March 12, 2012

Scale meltdown...

So my trusty old scale broke this morning....

So what do I do? I know I need to buy a new one. But how do I track my weight if the numbers are different?

I do not like change... and this is bothering me this morning.

Also the honeymoon period is over with my boyfriend... we barley spoke yesterday because I was cranky.

Hoping this day gets better.

Weddings and Car accidents!

Well I had a lovely time at my friend Jen and Ashley's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and it was nice for my boyfriend and I to get away for the weekend.

However, on the way home... a car stopped stopped short, so I in turn stopped short and then I was rearended... and then hit the car in front of me. so my poor car is damaged on both sides. It's going into the shop tomorrow. Luckily no one was injured but my car had the worst damanage.

Back  to work I go.

Friday, March 2, 2012

I hit the jackpot!!

My boyfriend rocks... so yesterday while I was at work I texted him warning him that I was a cranky bitch. Yesterday was the worst day at work by far and when I get into a mood like that it is really hard for me to get out of it. Normally I come home lock myself in my room and veg out till it passes. However, now that I live with my boyfriend I didn't think that was possible... so I sent him the warning LOL.

Well I get home from work last night and I find him cooking dinner, it was amazing (spinach stuffed chicken), there are beautiful flowers on the table, and a glass of wine was poured for me.

How can a girl be cranky after she comes home to that.

I am very happy that he decided to make the move to FL and I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet!

Tomorrow is my friends wedding in Islandmorada. I can not wait. The man and I get to have a beautiful weekend getaway in the Florida keys!

Happy Friday everyone!


Thanks to Drazil its BYOC time!

1.  Since I talked about psychics this week - I'm curious....if you could see one for free and you could only ask one question - what would it be?

To see if becoming a CPA is the right path I should be on...
2.  What's your favorite ice cream flavor and topping?

I love mint chocoloate chip... or chocolate with sprinkles all over it!
3.  What's your preferred method of working out?  DVDs, an external gym, gym inside your home, classes?

I prefer a gym outside of my house... I love the tredmill.
4.  If you work outside the home or if you ever did or will in the future - do you think it's better/easier to work with men or woman?  Who do you work mostly with now?

I work with mostly women. Sometimes its easy and sometimes its hard. I have always liked it when it was an even mix.
5.  Repeat question.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real Life... has been great and rough. Work is killing me slowly but the boyfriend moved in and that has been going great!
Blog land has been good... I have new followers and I am following new people. I have been reading everyones posts and trying to comment.

Most Embarrassing Moment Ever...

Lunch had to have been the most embarrassing moment ever since getting the lap band.

Forgot my lunch at home so I decided to go to a Cuban restaurant with some co workers. I thought I would be safe with some chicken. I ended up getting stuck and as I was running to the bathroom to relieve myself... I puked... All over myself and the hallway. How freaking embarrassing.

Luckily I had a change of clothes in my car.... but I really hope nothing like that ever happens again. :(

Sharp Pain?

Has anyone else experienced a sharp pain in the middle of there stomach?

How long did it last? Was it anything serious?

Twice today I have had this sharp shooting pain, to the right of my port dead center in the middle of my stomach. It feels like someone is quickly stabbing me and then the pain goes away... but it has me freaked the hell out.

Waiting for my doc to call back but was just wondering if anyone else had this around 4 months post op and if you got it checked out what did it end up being?

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!

YAY the week from hell is finally over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last night I went out for my moms Bday! I was really proud of myself that I totally didn't eat the total crap everyone was eating! I managed to make healthy choices while being out to eat!! I consider that a huge NSV for me.

However, I did totally over sleep this morning, therefore I did not weigh in :( So I will being doing so tomorrow!!

Going to hit the gym after work today!! I am actually looking forward to it!

Hope everyone has a great day and an even better weekend!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Thank god its Hump Day

Man oh Man... what a week!!! And its only Wednesday!

As most of you know I am an auditor... I work for a CPA firm and our busiest time is Jan to March. I knew that this quarter was going to be difficult as it always is...but one of my co-workers (who is my supervisor) is making my life a living hell... she likes to promise things and she cant deliver. Therefore all week I have been coming in early and leaving late. Also when you make a mistake she makes you feel like you are an idiot... and I am far from that... So I get really frustrated. I am a 31 year old woman, who ha 4 degrees, please do not speak to me like I am a child. I am busting my ass because you promised something too soon, and if I made a small mistake... do not call me stupid.

I am burnt out on class this semester... in fact I am in class right now. This class is so boring, poking my eyes out with a hot poker sounds like more fun. Luckily, I somehow managed to get a 100 on the test. Still do not know how I pulled that off. After this semester though its only one more class and then time to sit for the CPA exam!! Then hopefully it will be time for a new job.

On a happier front, My boyfriend moves in, in exactly one week!!! I am so excited but scared at the same time. I haven't lived with a man since hopefully it will go smoothly. He is moving from Portland and hasn't lived in fla in 10 yrs. Hope he can handle the Florida heat. LOL I am just looking forward to our weekend getaway after he gets here. Since we are heading to the keys for a wedding.

Well I hope everyone is having a good week!! Thanks for listening to me vent!

4 month Bandiversary!

So Valentines Day was my 4 month Bandiversary!

This past month I would say would have been my roughest. I went from too loose to too tight and back again. I also fell off the band wagon, as I was on vacation and school started back up... etc. I was either eating too much or not eating enough.

So last week I decided to challenge myself, I figured the best way for me to be successful at this is one month at a time. So far my challenge is working, I have lost 2 lbs and worked out twice this week. So I am totally getting better. I think it will be a lot easier when my boyfriend moves in at the end of the month, so I will have someone to work out with. I hate working out alone.

Well here are my stats in 4 months I have lost 35.5 lbs and 20 total body inches.

I am going to work out at least 3 times a week for the next 30 days.

I am going to loose at least 10 lbs in the next 30 days.

So there ya have it... its in black and white and I plan to stick with it.

Protein Bars

Can anyone suggest a protein bar that doesnt taste like absolute shit?

So far I have tried the Luna Peanut Butter Bar and the Atkins Chocolate Chip Graonla bar one and I didnt like either. I am not a happy camper about spending a lot of money on something that I dont like. But I could use one for the nights I have class...

Pleae help!

Man what a game! I am not that big of an NFL fan as I am more of a college football girl! But man what a nail biting game!! GOOO GIANTS!!

This weekend was pretty boring for me as I had a test today that I aced!! WOO HOO!! and I have been really sick all weekend... :( Hacking up my lungs is not my idea of fun but at least I am starting to feel better.

Ten Things Thursday!

  1. I am starting to get sick... and I really hope its not strep since two people in my office recently had it...
  2. My first exam is on super bowl Sunday... WTF is that!! Online classes normally give you a whole week to take the test.. not tell you an exact date.
  3. Work is really boring as I waiting for Audit boxes to come in... I really hope they come in today since I am going to be slammed once to they do come in.
  4. I start my CPA exam review in July... I can not believe how expensive it is to become a CPA.
  5. My boyfriend is officially moving in this month!! Life should get interesting!
  6. I am excited that my taxes are already filed, but my return is spent before I get it.
  7. I really need to work out more... I do not know why I haven't been able to get into the groove of things.
  8. I really think the FL BOOBS should meet up like the  Texas BOOBS do!
  9. I told my boss we should have a bowling night... I meant one night of fun with everyone in the office. She is big on team building. Hence the company cruise, picnic and various other things together. Now she is looking into a bowling league... Oh lord what did I do. I do not have time for a league and since it was my idea I feel obligated to join.
  10. I really wish I was in bed right now... this sore throat, stuffy nose and cough is killing me :( I have a hot date with my bed tonight!!
Hope everyone is having a good Thursday!

So last night at support group we were talking about addiction. We had a guy that shared his story about how he used to be addicted to drugs and alcohol and how it wasn’t until his life spiraled out of control and he lived under a bridge for 6 months did he decide to get help. He has been sober for 15 years and he recently had gastric by pass surgery and he is doing really well. He was saying that he lives one day at a time even when it comes to using his tool to loose weight.

He mentioned and the Doc agreed with him, that 20 % of bariatric patients change the addiction of food for another addiction.  Whether it is drugs, alcohol, shopping, exercise etc.

He mentioned some people go full tilt it one direction or the other but they don’t have a happy medium.

So my question is did you trade one vice for another? Do you find yourself with a new addiction?

After listening to this last night, I realized that my alcohol consumption has increased and it is definitely something I need to keep an eye on.

How do you know when you are full?

So how do you know when you are full? They say that there are signals... but I have never experienced that.

I measure out my food, and only eat whats on my plate. But I have never had a full signal...

What is your signal?

  1. It is really hard to get back into the swing of things after a cruise...I have no motivation this week.
  2. Tonight is my support group meeting, and I am actually looking forward to it.
  3. Tonight I am going to work out, even if it kills me its a necessary evil.
  4. My classes are super boring this semester. It is taking all of my energy to actually focus.
  5. My roommates boyfriend moves in less than 2 weeks, I am really nervous about that.
  6. My boyfriend moves in 6 weeks... I am even more nervous about that.
  7. I hope that I have no problems with my fill yesterday... but I wont know for sure until I get off of Liquids on Friday.
  8. Work is really slow this week, but starting next week I am going to be slammed for the next two months. I am not looking forward to it.
  9. I wish my job would give us our W-2's already I would really like to file my taxes already.
  10. Happy Thursday my lovelies!

Exercise time...

So since surgery in October, I have totally been slacking in the exercise department...I have decided that I have no more excuses and I plan on hitting up the gym after support group tonight.

I was wondering though... should I just do Cardio for like a month to get back into the swing of things or should I start lifting weights right away too?

Any suggestions? It has been a very long time since I have done anything like that.

3rd Successful fill...

Well I ended up getting my third fill. I got another CC for a total of 5 CC in my 10 CC lap band.

I was a little scared for the doctor to go that aggressive since the last time I was at 5CC I could not eat for a week.

But so far so good.

So we shall see!

Fill day

Today I have an appointment for my 3rd fill... I have to admit that I am a tad bit on the nervous side since last time I was above 4CC I couldnt eat a thing.

So I am hoping that my fill will be done with no complications this time!

Hope everyone is having a good day :)

Cruise Pics!!

I am back and tired as cruise = lots of drinking and not enough sleep. The wonderful people I work with are much younger then I am, and Party way harder than I do... so needless to say I could not keep up the whole time. But I did have a blast and cant wait to do it next year!!

 Time for the sail away party!
 Dinner on the first night with my friend and two of my co-workers!
 Laying in the sun in Key West... recovering from Day 1!
 Beach time in Cozumel with my friend Carrie!
 Carrie with the DJ from the Cruise in Cozumel...
 1/3 of our Crazy Group... there was 27 of us total!
 Enjoying our last night on the cruise!
 Beach time in Mexico!
 Goofing off! 
 Being taught how to dance!
My coworkers never follow directions
Just hanging out in Mexico

Back from Mexico!!

Honey, I am home!! and I am ready to pass out at my desk...

Free company cruise = amazing, having to get up at 630 am to get off the boat and to work by 830 am = no bueno.

I didn't sleep very well last night... I just hope I do not end up with keyboard impressions on my forehead today :( as I am going on 3 hours of crappy sleep.

Will post pictures soon!

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Hump Day!!

So I am all packed and ready for my Cruise tomorrow.... The half day at work is going to be killer... I am sure no one will be productive whatsoever.

It literally looks as if I am moving to Mexico instead of going on a short 4 day cruise... OOOPSIE!! But at least I will be prepared. A girl can never have too many clothes or accessories.

I so a new low on the scale yesterday morning... I really hope it sticks as I am moving up my weigh in up a day since I will be floating on a boat somewhere.

I am hoping I can keep my portions and calories in check too.... This is the first time I will be away from my home cooked meals for an extended period of time and I am a little bit nervous!!!

Ok time for class, and then finish packing and off to  Mexico I go... catch you guys next week!!

3 Month Bandiversary!!

Wow... time is flying. I just happened to look at the date and realize that today is my 3 month anniversary with the lap band!

When I started this journey, it was for my health, and for the ability to one day have a family... What I didn't realize is that I would gain all of you in the process!! I have met and talked to so many wonderful people, and I am so grateful for it!

So at the 3 month mark, I am down 31lbs and 18.5 total body inches.

After my cruise I am totally going to kick it in to high gear... eating right every day instead of just during the week, gonna quit with the girls nights out and drinking, for it is not helping my waste line and focus on exercising more. I convinced my best friend to go to the gym with me since I hate going alone. My roommate is also buying a piece of work out equipment for the house. So I am hoping the next 3 months I will have even greater success.

On a side note... When I weighed 275 lbs I had no problem finding clothes that fit... now that I am 244 I cant seem to find anything if my life depended on it. Everything I find is either way to big or way to small... Thank god for Cat, Christy and Stephanie or I would be going to Mexico naked.

Hope everyone has an awesome Saturday! I am off to a bridal shower for my Lesbian friends... this should be interesting as they are a bunch of wild girls.

Our Darling Draz has posted our Friday fun in the form of BYOC!

It’s Friiiiidddaayyy! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! A little ditty you can participate in on Fridays to get to know your fellow blogger better and to give your blogging brain a break.

Copy and paste to your own blog and ENJOY!! Special thanks goes out to my fellow Jedi Kittens – Linda and Stef – for supplying me with every single question this week! No theme today – just massively random!

 1. Do you have a favorite traditional “birthday meal”? If yes – what is it and what is the meaning behind it?
Not really... we usually go out somewhere to eat but it changes constantly. The year before last we went to Sushi Masa and had sushi/Thai and this year we went to Bennihana's which is a Japanese steak house... actually come to think of it I am starting to see a theme... LOL

2. If you’ve lost weight, has your style changed since you lost weight? Or what's your dream purchase when you do lose weight/hit goal?
I am starting to wear more form fitting things instead of looking frumpy all of the time. When I reach goal I would like to either get my belly button pierced or a tattoo or something.

 3. Pick one question of the following two to answer: Who is your favorite Muppet and why? Or who is your favorite Smurf and why?
Miss Piggy or Kermit... they are just too cute!

 4. When you buy a lotion or after bath spray or body spray or candle (not perfume) – what’s the “flavor” you always find yourself loving the most?
Usually Pear stuff for body spray from Victoria  Secret.

 5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in real life and in blogland.
Real life... hrmmm it sucks. I have been feeling really down lately and not sure why... been trying to figure it out all week. Work is brutal as usual and  School just started up... I am just not at the top of my game at the moment.

Blog land totally rocks! Thanks to Christy, Cat, and Stephanie I am all set for my cruise and I now have more shorts then I know what to do with... LOL it totally felt like Christmas coming home to big boxes to open up!! Thank you again ladies :)

  6. Ronnie and I talk way too much about boys... hahaha but its fun!!

  10. Thank god tomorrow is Friday!!!

First day of the new semester...

Its the first day of class... and I can already tell it is going to be a very long and brutal semester... Remind me why I went back to school for another degree again?

3 classes left to graduate, only taking 2 this semester thanks to good ol budget cuts at FAU. One of my classes are online ( they actually charge more for that) and the other class is via teleweb conference... It was so hard understanding the teacher as we can only hear the chatter of the other students in the live class room.

I really can not wait for vacation next week... Mexico here I come... You are long overdue.

Tuesday, January 10, 2012


Why is it then when I have had a shitty day all I want to do is eat?

One glass of wine is all I am allowed...

10 Things Thursday!

  1. I find it funny how when you aren't looking for a job, somehow head hunters find you and they try to entice you with an amazing offer.
  2. I am really thinking about said offer, but it will involve a 55 mile commute each way for the next 5 months. Then my lease is up and I can move closer.
  3. I really need to get my ass in the gym... I have been slacking.
  4. I can not understand for the life of me why it is so cold in Florida. I do not have the clothes for this kind of weather. The other day it was colder in Florida then it was in Oregon. That is just wrong in my opinion.
  5. I am not looking forward to school starting next week, 3 classes to go and I am done.
  6. I find it funny that I talk to Ronnie, who I have never met before more than I talk to my roommate... or any of my best friends... I love her to death, I wish she lived closer.
  7. Speaking of never meeting Ronnie, I can not wait to BOOBS... come on September!
  8. Why are guys so confusing? A guy that I have always liked, likes to make advances at me when I am in a relationship but when I am single... he wants nothing to do with me. I just don't get it.
  9. The next quarter is going to be a doosey... The new assignments came out at work. and I almost died. Looks like I am going to be working late all quarter. Got to love tax season. Being an accountant is fun.... NOT!
  10. I am excited that my shows are returning tonight! You will find me snuggled up in my blanket watching Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice!

31st Bday Pics!

Well it has always been fun celebrating my birthday while bringing in the new year. This year I turned 31! Normally I do not have a party on my actually birthday, but with school starting back up and a cruise to Mexico coming up, I decided what the hell and had a small get together with a few close friends. We started at Bennihanna's which is a hibachi place that I have never been to, and OMG was it amazing. Then we headed to downtown Delray to hear a friends band play... all in all it was awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better birthday. Especially since a friend of mine was in town, we have literally know each other since the day I was born, and it was really nice to spend time with her on my birthday. The only thing missing was my amazing boyfriend :( I can not wait till he moves to Florida!!

Hell did officially freeze over since I wore a dress and heels for the first time in I can not even tell you how long.

The start of the evening

Two of my best friends!

My friend I have known my entire life!
