Really? Has it been a month already?

Sooo.... it's been a month. A month?! I knew it had been a while, but what the hell? Well... I am still without my computer for one... stupid dog. Also, again, using the phone is sooo time consuming! But, here I am, back again. Besides, as Karen has pointed out, she made my blog pretty awesome,  the least I can do is use it! Maybe this time, I can keep on track with it? (Candy, help me out, k?)

So! Where can I start? Well, last blog post, I mentioned I was starting a low carb, high fat diet (info here). Honestly, when I started it, I was only going to try it for 3 weeks, to see how I would do. Um... I'm hooked! I know this is so cliché,  but it isn't a diet so much as a permanent lifestyle change. I've met people who are still following this way of life 9 years later. It helps with so many health problems, it's amazing. So how have I done in a month? Well, I'm down 10.5 inches and 6.6 pounds. Say what?? Yeah. Needless to say, I love it. I don't feel like I'm denying myself anything either. Remember several months back when I had a whole post on the fact that I couldn't seem to give up candy? Thing of the past now. If (and this is a big if) I have a taste for some candy, I grab a serving of sugar free candy, and I'm set for days. I have no real "cravings" anymore for sweets. It's so crazy!

Let's see... another change is my sleep pattern. Got that all straightened out now! Guess what?  I'm getting about 8 hours of sleep now... instead of 4 here and 2 there. I love being off of night shift!
As for working in the kitchen, I wish they would utilize my culinary skills a bit more... I did go to school at one point for this shit... but I've been stuck on the serving line for weeks. Hopefully I will get my chance though. And one of the lower supervisors is a complete bitch who hates me... but oh well. She's not in charge often, so I'm not worried. I can deal with the glares, but I talk back when she starts trying to tear into me for dumb stuff. Lol suprised I haven't been written up for insubordination yet. ;)

Oh! By the way! On my path to Mount Doom through Middle Earth, I have reached a huge milestone! I have arrived at the Prancing Pony in Bree!! I now have Aragorn in my group! How exciting!!
Anyway my lovelies! I must go for now, but I will try to post again next week! I might need a reminder though ;)
