Adjusting

This is the third day of me getting back on the grind from my vacation and I think it's gonna take me twice as long to get back to normal. My sleep schedules off and my clothes are tighter due to all that eating and lounging I did all week. I knew I was gonna gain a tad but man when I hit the scale up I was like "oh heck nah" I done gained back what I loss! This isn't uncommon for the holidays nor uncommon for me in general but wow. I already had the lifestyle change thing going on before the new year came in but now I gotta step it up even more than I have. No time for going backwards like that, holiday or not!

I hit the grocery store cuz I needed a few items and I saw caramel egg nog. Even tho' I knew that wasn't gonna help my vacation weight issues I had to try it, plus it was 50% off! Come on, lol! Let's just say if someone needs a really sweet drink darn near to the point where your face draws up, that will do it. It's really thick and rich.

Anyways, I am still adjusting to going back to work. I don't have the renewed motivation I thought I would have by having time off. I think I really am burning or burnt out. Even my coworker sees me distancing myself from my job. I am not that gun ho lets do this employee that I once was. I am way more nonchalant now. I am not in a situation where I can quit and do something else right now, nor do I want to give up when I am close to being vested. I don't know. I should just stop complaining and be thankful that I have a job that can cover my means. Some people have to do much grosser things for less money or don't have a job at all.*sigh*

I have to get it together soon because school starts up again for me next Monday. I am taking 3 classes and the work load should be easier to get through than last semester. We'll see.

LUVIN ME said...

I didn't really set any big goals for myself this year. I'm just going with the flow for a change.

Just the thought of caramel eggnog gives me cavities...

Ladynay said...

Luvin I think many people opted out of resolutions and/or goals this year.

It's 100 calories just to look at caramel egg nog! LOL

Lady J said...

Give yourself a chance to get back into the swing of things. I'm glad you are greatful for your job cause trust me it could be worse as you already know. That's how I try to look at it anyway. Carmel eggnog sounds like a heart attack in a bottle and gross may I add.

ttd said...

Ladynay said...

J, it's not gross, just something you can't have a complete glass of without falling out into a coma! LOL

TTD, I am hoping that your right cuz I am not really feeling this right here.

Thanks for the luck, I'm sure I'll need it sometime soon dealing with that school! LOL

Freaky Deaky said...

You're right. It was 5 in the morning and not 2. I blame you for that too. LOL!

What's with the sighing? Let's go to that dark room with the big, sturdy, polished wood desk and see if we can make that sigh go away. [whistles]

Ladynay said...

I am always up at 5. I get up at 4:30 most mornings, LOL!

Keep mentioning that desk and I'm gonna bend you over and spank you! *wink*

Freaky Deaky said...

You mean the big, sturdy, polished desk? Do what you gotta do. I might like it and beg for another. I'll definitely return the favor and then some. ;o)

Ladynay said...

*whistling* I don't hear you! LOL

Omar Ramon said...

Ladynay said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA you just didn't suggest a vitamin did you O?

You need the 20lbs if you ask me, but if you don't like it neither do I! *wink*

The holidays has blessed us with stuff we didn't want in our midsections/thighs/etc...! LOL

Freaky Deaky said...

[Gets behind you and smacks you on the ass before growling in your ear.] Can you hear me now? I know you can. Now who's getting under the desk today?

deepnthought said...

I know that you will be back in the swing of things soon. Just think, it will be all over soon enough and you will be in your field of study and chillin like a villian.

Remember we are all in this together.
dont sweat the weight gain.I had beef this holiday. I know that brought ten lbs by its self. LOL.

Ladynay said...

Freaky, I don't even have the words! LOL Bad bad freaky BAD! ROFL *cough*urturn*coughcough*

DNT, I can't wait till I get to that point!!I know I got more earning to do but I still can't wait!

You had beef??? It was good wasn't it?

The Goddess said...

Girl I feel ya! I know I have been sleeping super late since I've been here in Denver so I know it's going to be murder on me getting up at 6am again. It's been a hot minute.

And don't get me started on the weight gain. I don't EVEN want to think about all the weight I've gained.

Good luck with school, you're going to be one busy sista. Hope you still find time to entertain us with your blog.

blkbutterfly said...

Ladynay said...

Goddess, girl it's gonna be tough going back to work but you'll be fine! I am almost a pro at the school/work/homelife/blog thing. Blogging is an addiction! LOL

I left the weight stuff out on purpose! *wink*

4EverJennayNay said...

Just when I'm beginning to get back on a normal sleeping pattern, the weekend comes and mucks it all up again!

The Mistress said...

Oooh, Carmel Egg Nog sounds SO GOOD!

I have a bad sweet tooth.

Anyway, try Yoga if you'd like to lose weight...it really works wonders.

Plus it keeps you limber for sex.

Take it from me.

Ladynay said...

Nay, HAHAHAHAHA I know right! What we gonna do?

Mistress, if you have a bad sweet tooth then you need to try it if you ever see any! I have one too and my first sip was like WHOA! LOL

Yoga huh? I've been wanting to try that but never got the umph to find a class or buy a tape. I trust you on the limber thing you nasty thing you! LOL
