Trepidation on Tuesday

Weigh in is imminent... and I am getting my normal case of nerves. Why do I always feel so anxious about this? I have no idea. I've been good on my plan with very few splurges. I have been exercising...okay, not as much as I should be, I know. I am very naturally active, I walk a lot and I'm always running around, up and down the stairs, performing intense medical procedures like wound care--so I get a workout that way. I've been taking the stairs all the time now and that's something I never did before. Baby steps? I know, I know.

Today was crazy, I had to be at work by 6am...and I worked until 6pm. So now I'm home and I'm exhausted. Tomorrow is supposed to be my day off...but I'm working in the morning (...damn it). I've already told my boss I need to be finished by my weigh in at 9:15 so that means I'm going to be out at 6am again. AND I'm on call this weekend. The only good thing is that I haven't even had a second to be hungry. I don't think about needing to eat because my mind is occupied.

Delicious Dinner!
Although the second I walked in, I went straight to work sauteing onion, pepper and mushroom to volumize my spaghetti and meatballs. I also served it with a side salad with light Italian that I saved from lunch. And I put 2 teaspoons of kraft parmesean onto it, its 20 calories; so I counted that as using all of my limited frees. Very delicious!

Now I'm going to just try and relax and not get overly anxious about weigh in...or get annoyed at having to work on my "day off". I'm also having a small party, more on that tomorrow!

Hope everyone is having a great day!


  1. I work 6-6 and it is sooooooooo hard to not want to come home and veg out on the couch...

  2. Good luck at WI tomorrow, sending positive vibes!

  3. Sounds like you are doing well...can't wait to see your weigh in number!! Good luck!
