  1. So yesterday I finally had my reproductive endo/fertility appointment. It was a bit nerve wracking and overwhelming. So while we try to regulate my cycle, I need to lose ~100lbs so that I'm in the healthy weight range to have children. I've been slowly but surely working on losing weight. I was feeling pretty confident and then I was informed that to regulate my cycle we'll use hormones. I'm not sure why that surprised me... but it'll make it more difficult to lose weight. I'm concerned about this but it's not like its impossible. I can do this. I know I can. It's just overwhelming.
  2. I like To-Do lists. I frequently make them, and forget to ever look at them again. But I'm trying to get a bit better about it. I'm also working on getting myself up a little earlier so I have time to sit down and organize my day. I have also spent time detailing every minute of my day. I try not to do that so much anymore since wrenches are frequently thrown my way. I prefer a more loose plan of the day. Of course the main points of the day are work, family time, sleep, and school stuff when class is in session. Maybe I should start micromanaging again. Hmm. I'll think about this a little. I
  3. A little recap. So I forgot we were starting this up again before Saturday. But I am busy as always. It's overwhelming as always. The challenge could be going better but it also could be going worse. Does anyone have any advice for managing your time while working a lot? I keep saying I'm going to fall into a routine but I am really struggling. I'm afraid I may have to turn to coffee soon lol
  4. Good morning Rebellion! Previously known as Neeko, I'm rising as Tamesis. Neeko really held some unpleasant memories for me so it was time for a change. Tamesis was and is my boss healer in WoW. The name comes from the River Thames and means the Dark One. This challenge is similar to my last challenge but I've backed off a lot on my goals. An unwritten (written) goal that has cause this is the need to spend more time with my family, especially with my soon to be sister-in-law. She is 17, soon to be 18, and not in the best of situations at home. She has been staying wit
  5. Another day almost finished. I finally got a hold of the fertility/endocrine specialist that was supposed to contact me, yesterday. It's only be like 2 months since the referral and I had to initiate the contact. If I had known that would be the case I would have, you know, contacted them a couple months ago, but I hadn't received any information. Oh well. I have an appointment with them in 3 weeks. My anxiety has seemed to amp up a little since making the appointment and I'm not sure why. I felt a sense of relief for a couple hours and then things changed. I don't know. I may need to make a f
  6. I have been struggling so much! I think I'm overall just struggling to the schedule change. So I anticipate everything kind of working itself out soon. So on the positive side, I'm really enjoying listening to the LinkedIn Learning videos and I've been reading a lot more which is nice. Plus I got my new computer which is nice. I like actually having a reliable place to work on school work and to actually get to play WoW again! Playing WoW has also made it easier to be more social, which was one of my goals this challenge. So yay for positives.
  7. So my day off yesterday turned into hanging out at my sister's house. Her kitchen and basement flooded so my fiance and I went over and he helped her boyfriend tear down a couple walls that turned out to be completely rotted. It was an all day affair. Work today was a bit overwhelming. I had a lot of work to do and I feel like I did nothing. It has been okay but now that my doc's schedule is kind of normalizing, it's making it difficult to keep up with my computer work/phone calls. My schedule is all wonky right now so I can pick up at the nursing home, I'm still working 40 hours with my doc b
  8. Working at the home, hasn't been crazy this weekend. It feels like the calm before the storm. I can only imagine what next weekend will be like. Everything will be fine. I'm looking forward to my day off tomorrow though. We may go to a state park for a day trip or we may stay home and play video games all day. Either will be acceptable.
  9. Yeah, so I'm an LPN already, which means I can do most things a RN can do. There's only a couple things I can't do at my nursing home job. But working the nursing home gives me the hours I need for school where the doctors office does not. You need 200 for a year. I slacked off once covid started because my full time job is in a doctors office and I didn't want to risk bringing sickness to the residents in the nursing home. But its all good. We'll rock this out and get a little savings going and get this schooling done.
  10. Ours aren't rapid and I'm honestly not sure how long the wait is. I haven't gotten any results, I was tested on Tuesday, and I'll be working today and tomorrow. This was my first time being tested though. I still have a lot of hours left: 135 hours to be exact or 17 shifts. I'm hoping I become more tolerant of the test though, it really sucks. I do wonder what company they are going through though. I work at a doctors office full time and when we send people to be tested for COVID the results take anywhere from 2-10 days depending on which testing center they go to. You would think
  11. Man oh man. This is my first week starting back to get my hours I need working at a nursing home for school. I think my body has become preemptively tired because of it. Plus the need to be tested for COVID once a week, kinda sucks. But this is overall good, and I need to keep reminding myself of this. Working a couple extra shifts a week, gives us extra money to pay for my classes, save for our wedding, honeymoon, family vacation, fertility treatment and anything in between. I just need to keep reminding myself of the positive things. Everything is just getting a little overwhelming again. An
  12. I agree! I tend to feel guilty afterwards though. And, then there are my 12 hour work days where I day dream about my bed all day. lol
  13. What a lazy day! Honestly, it was amazing. I did very little. I played video games. I did get laundry done, though, so I suppose that counts as productive. Time to go to bed to start my fantabulously busy week! Night, guys!
  14. Alrighty! The fourth was nice! We had a bonfire and grilled outside. My sister and her babies came over as well as a couple friends I haven't seen in forever. It was awesome. Today consisted of doing almost nothing, which was a nice change of pace. Then we went and bought a computer... Now I don't have to threaten to throw my Chromebook out a window and I can play WoW again! I'm super excited. I did play a little bit of WoW this evening, and connected with a few old friends from the game. I'm definitely looking forward to get back into the game and have a computer to do my school work on that
  15. Today has been crazy and oddly disappointing. I was well aware of the house work that needed doing. My mom was well aware of it too. An overwhelming amount of housework stresses me out as it is. Then we stopped what we were doing to go and help my mom move stuff from the place she was storing it because she "needed to do it now." I'm feeling a bit selfish, but she was supposed to come over to my house and hang out with me while I finished everything up. I dropped all my responsibilities to come help her today but it's now almost 11:30pm and she still isn't here because she's waiting for some d
  16. It is almost the end of my work week! I'm ridiculously excited to go home and sit down after I finish all the stuff the boys didn't do while I was at work today. Today wasn't even a long week and I just feel drained. I don't really know/understand what's going on but we'll get through it. Especially since I need to appreciate this light week since for the next few months I'll be working 48-56 hour work weeks. It's all worth it though. We got this, plus I'm doing alright on this challenge so far so that's good.
  17. Neurology is fun. I'm actually working on that subject at the moment for one of my RN classes!
  18. Here to follow your progress!
  19. I'm glad I could be a bit of an inspiration. I'm currently working on my associate RN degree. All of my classes are online and there is a lot of content. Doing NCLEX questions related to the readings has been helping me with my quizzes and tests.
  20. Just another day in paradise here. Plans for the day were derailed to help my mom move a lot of heavy stuff out of the place she is storing it. So that was exciting. Work was work like. I'm all caught up on my homework. It's now 1 am so later today I'll need to take my final for my class but today will also involve moving more heavy stuff. I'm also finding, that wedding planning is a bit stressful. I'm also a couple hours late on taking my meds so that may be why I'm having the increased stress response. That and the lack of sleep. Ah well. We shall remedy both of those things shortly. Have a
  21. Haha! That's awesome! I love it!
  22. Haha thank you. I like having this schedule, but it definitely makes it difficult to do anything extra on those days. I just need to remember to be patient with myself and to most importantly stay on track with my sleep. That is exciting! Mine is going very slowly. My fiance was picking on me, because I just had to pick one of the most complicated once to do for my first one. lol But I'm hoping it will look awesome in the end so it will be worth it. It's this fantasy, bridge, waterfall scene. It looked awesome when I bought it. What kind of painting did you get?
  23. So we're not off to a bad start. I've been working 12s and finding it hard to do anything extra after work, aside from class work. But I think we'll fall into a routine soon. At least I hope so.
  24. I didn't know that was a thing! I signed up now. I won't be able to run it but me and the fiance can walk that (hopefully) no problem. And, now I want a NF shirt... lol That's awesome! Such huge progress! Keep it up.
  25. Hey everyone! I had a pretty good challenge last month and I'm ready to make it happen again this time. I got a little lost, time frame wise, so I'm starting a couple days late. No big deal. My challenge this go is as follows: Challenge Tracker Charisma Post on the forums daily. Text or call a person for social reasons once a day. Take some time to work on wedding planning daily. Constitution Track all the food and drink that I have consumed daily. Stay within my point range most days. Check one thing off of my household to
