Busy Week and 1 Month Bandiversary

I haven't posted anything for a little while because I have been really busy. I did start 3 different blogs and never got the chance to finish them :( Oh well, I'm going to try to sum the last few weeks up.

I ended up taking 2 extra weeks off work after my surgery because of a complication see blog here about that. I went back to work on June 11th and have been busy busy busy. I'm working on a really important project at work that was suppose to start on July 1st, but when I got back I learned that it should have started on June 1st, but FEMA didn't get around to approving it until June 11th. After the approval I was given the go ahead to create the training documents and teach the training to the folks that are helping on the project.

My department moved from are temporary digs finally on Friday, here is a picture of my almost completely packed desk. Can you believe I had 7 boxes of stuff and 1 tote in this little area? That doesn't even include the computer stuff!  I'll post a picture of my new full size cube next week, so you can see the difference!


On a different note I changed my birth control a few months ago and I was luck enough to have the worst week ever due to my TOM. I'm pretty sure that I need something different. So when I see my OBGYN next week, we are going to figure out what the hell is going on!

On the weight loss front, I'm still hanging on to a 17 lb weight loss. I do have restriction, even without a fill. I cannot eat anywhere near the same amount of food that I use to be able too. I'm making sure to get my protein in, but I'm not working out like I should be. I'm more active, but not "working out." So my game plan is...... I'm going to wake up early next week and do some walking before the family gets up and I'm racing to get out of the house. I'm not starting on Monday, but Thursday. I'm also going to log in to My Fitness Pal and figure out how to make it work for me. So far, I'm not a fan.


  1. Hope you manage to get your birth control sorted and the workload calms down.

  2. I do the MFP and I like it! Going for my first fill tomorrow..I am hoping it helps me. I know I am eating probably more than I should, I'm down 19.8 lbs since my surgery date (this includes pre-op diet).

    I'm not really thrilled with that number, have not lost a whole lot since surgery, like 5-6 lbs in well I guess a month. IRRITATED.
