lacking in thoughts

I've been MIA quite a bit and I apologize for that. Lately it seems that I'm either at school, driving the kiddo to school, at clinical, studying (which I should be doing WAY more of), or sleeping. Oh, and I should add in there cleaning the house, cooking, laundry, etc. I am definitely going to try and keep this blog more up to date than I've been doing.

So... I told everyone that I get to be my sister's MOH for her June wedding!!!! So exciting!!! Last weekend we went dress shopping and picked out some fabulous dresses for the bridesmaids and myself. That day was an ugly eye opener for me. Wow when did I get so HUGE? I'm not even going to tell you what size dress I have to wear, it makes me cry (literally) when I think about it. The good thing is that I have pictures of me in these dresses that I can look at daily to remind myself of why I've given up Dr Pepper (except for 1 on my clinical day, and 1 on Saturday if needed), and why I'm counting my calories, and drinking a ton of water & Crystal Light. Even more of a good thing: between Tuesday & Friday I had already lost 5 lbs, I gave myself a little break on Saturday and had a slice of pizza, some chips & dip, some m&m's, and some beer - don't judge people! and I as of this morning I was still down 3.5 lbs! This coming week I plan to continue with my portion control, healthy foods, fluids, no eating after dinner, and then add my treadmill to the mixture. I think by June it's possible to be a size 2 - ha ha ha ha!!!! As if! Maybe add about 8 sizes to that and it'll be more accurate! My official weigh in day is Tuesday so I'm excited to see how this first week went.

Also on Tuesday is my first test for my OB class. As of now I have a 100%, kick ass! Though I'll be honest, that only consists of 2 quizzes and 1 paper, which only equals out to 9 measly little points. Oh well, they are 9 points of which I have them all! =)

Tomorrow I have check-offs on putting iv's in, Lord help me and the patients that have me doing this to them! lol

Have a great week blog world, I hope to stay in touch more often!
