Monday Coffee Musings


Close up of cup of coffee with pink roseI actually pulled myself out of bed at 8:30am today.  Oh I wanted to go on sleeping but I needed to get up and move.  I just worked 2, 12.5 hour shifts and was tired but I know if I stayed in bed nothing would be accomplished.

First thing on Mondays I land my butt on the scale, and today I am at 179.9, which is a 15 pound weight loss since I started this job 7 weeks ago.  There is no immediate sign of that letting up since I walk several miles over the course of my day and add all the lifting, pushing, pulling, and packing a lunch so I don’t over eat.  Heck I am not even hungry really come lunch time, I just eat because I know I need too or I might face plant on the floor.  I love this side benefit!

Still on baby watch, my daughter is big, and ready but the baby isn’t here yet.  She isn’t really due until 7/1, but could go any time now and I wish it would hurry along!  I am so excited to meet this sweet little guy, my 5th, and hopefully not last, grandchild.  I’m praying this happens on my off days so I can be at the hospital to welcome this little man in his first hours.

I just started reading a book by Dave Ramsey, The Financial Peace Planner.  I need to get my money in order and that is going to help I’m told.  I don’t make a lot of money, but I LOVE what I do so I need to be careful with my money.

I am using my planner more and more now, and hopefully that will help me get balanced with my job and my direct sales businesses. There are blogs and social media posts I need to do and without a plan I just don’t get it done.  That must improve.

For those wondering what it is like, or what it is we do, I have started my other blog about being a CNA/STNA, http://www.thecnalife.com, feel free to pop in and check out those posts.  I guess I need a link on my blog page for it.  And BAM that is done, see the side bar!  🙂

Yes, Wine & Cheese will be returning, and I’ll be linking up on Friday Confessional again.  I am structuring my days so that I can get everything done, which is a lot.

Speaking of the daughter, she is headed her to visit so off I go to enjoy spending some time with her.

  1. My husband used that book when he was doing our family budget. we still have a roof over our head and food in our bellies, so I guess it’s pretty good — because he is terrible with money!! ha.
    Good for you on the weight loss – amazing!!! I have no idea how much for myself because I over-looked one tiny thing when I started this exercise mind and body journey: we don’t owe a weight scale!! duh.
    but I have been going by the fit of my clothes and since I have had to shop twice since starting and am down 2 sizes now, I figure I must be on track. 🙂 And I really love my Fit Bit for keeping me motivated and tracking everything too.
    keeping mom and baby in my prayers for a safe delivery. and I guess soon for you – LOL
