Keto and Ketchup

Ketchup – as in let’s catch up!

Sorry I’ve been gone, it’s been busy where I’ve been. In the last week, I’ve started the Ketogenic diet, and I’ve dropped about 8 pounds, I’m sure it’s just water weight but it’s weight that I haven’t been able to lose before, so there’s that. I’m dangerously close to a goal weight and I’m happy about that.

I’m still doing positivity posts and I think I’ve been doing those for about 2 months now, which is awesome. Depending on the post ~40 people like it, which means 40 people see what I’m writing out, and I think that’s wonderful in itself.

I’ve been working a lot more, which means actual work instead of down-time. But I’ve also managed to hit level 122 on a bubble game that I started 2 weeks ago on facebook – so I’ve had more time, but it’s easier to be on facebook so I can chat with my fellow library people.

I’m now actively searching for a full time job in the last month, and I was offered a position at AFLAC which I turned down, only because it was difficult to sign on to a job where I would be a 1099 instead of a W2, but I told them to contact me in a couple of years, because I do think I would be excellent for that kind of job. I love helping people, and I know how to tie an emotional connection to something to sell, so I am good at selling things (that is, if I think it’s worth it).

For this week, I have to work a lot extra for work (bleh), and I have a wedding to go to – they were our former roommates, but I was going to go to the bachelorette party, but have to work, because no one else seems to want to come in. Actually, a whole bunch of people took off for that day, and then my boss was like ‘yeah come in’ and I’ve been over a lot on hours, but it’s frustrating since I can only work so much.

I hope everything is well for everyone who reads this, if anyone wants to read this, because I’ve been gone, and I’m going to try to be more active. I have some stuff coming up this month and next, but that’s what makes life so exciting, right?

Thanks,

Kay

Lent

So for those who celebrate lent – it’s coming.

I was brought up in the church – I attended Catholic schools for most of my life (10+ years so definitely most of my life) and I can also say that is one way for a child who turned into an adult to break away and “discover” other means of religion.

I’m practically agnostic/deist but still on the edge, and not making any means to commit to another anytime soon. Yes, it’s because I’m lazy and I’ll be 25 in June so I’m still unsure about everything religion. There’s too much pressure on society’s views on it anyways.

So, one of my closest friends is going through the process of becoming a Catholic. And while I’m excited for him, it really puts things in perspectives on how the Church is set up – and as emotional support I blindly said that I would participate in Lent with him.

Yay.

So, instead of giving something up, I’m going to do what I did in December (Runcember) and work out more. I pretty much did a 5K every day of December, and while I do have a 5K that I’m walking for Weight Watchers, I’ll be working out every day of March. Except for Sunday’s because I work long hours on that day, and you’re supposed to be taking a break once a week anyways.

Lucky for me, I prefer Tuna to anything, so the No Meat on Friday’s won’t be challenging. We’ll see how it works out, I have everything written in my planner just to make sure. It’s actually a lot of fun to be organized.

I got up in time!!

I got up in time to head to Weight Watchers this morning – which in hindsight isn’t that difficult, but when you get home around 3:15 and then your boyfriend decides to keep you awake so you only have maybe 4 hours of sleep, it was challenging.

But I knew that if I went I could be back on track.

And that’s the case. It was great seeing everyone since it’s been a couple of weeks, it puts me back on track. Which is what I feel like I needed anyways.

It’s honestly a great experience to go back to a community that you haven’t taken part in in awhile, and I gained 3.8 pounds, but considering that it could be so much higher, I’m not terribly upset.

I think it will motivate me to become better this coming week, especially with my Lent Goals that I will be starting at the beginning of next month.

I can’t believe that it’s coming up, in all honesty.

Thanks!

Positivity Month

I know that I mentioned it here, but I thought that I would give some examples on how I’m trying to write down not only common sense, but things that I think people need to hear.

Also as a PSA – my boyfriend and I did not break up, but I still think that it’s important that these words are expressed.

I hope that these words will help us over time. Also, if you noticed I changed the tag on the right bottom to my instagram name as well.

Just so people could find me. I’m doing it for an entire month, so I should be done by March 3rd (30 ish days) but maybe I’ll do it for longer. It’s definitely making me more chill if that makes any sense.

Hope you like them!!

Good Customer Service

It’s honestly so easy, but I also feel like it’s difficult to come by these days.

Yeah, people are annoying, believe me. I’ve worked in customer service now for hmm…7 years? (Oh goodness, I’ve been part of the work force for that long).

I also think that it is highly important to work in different fields. For example, my first job was fast food, then I moved onto retail, and now essentially office work. But I worked in fast food and I was a server. Which I still have nightmares about.

Anyways, I still think it’s important to treat people, like actual people. As you may know I work in a library and yesterday I someone returned a phone to me that was lost. It immediately rang in my hands, and the person seemed relieved that someone found it, but after I hung up the phone, I noticed that it had 2% of a battery charge. Naturally, I felt bad, and I begun to charge it, after looking up which charger it needed.

When the person came back for his phone, he was happy, but he was also mad at me for charging it. Which if you ask me, was uncalled for. It’s really not that big of a deal, but because it ruffled my feathers a bit, I was surprised.

It still makes me feel like maybe we should try hard to give the best customer service out there, and I don’t want people to make me feel bad for doing a good deed. Eh, late night thoughts, here they are.

It’s Valentine’s Day (technically) hope everyone has a great day!

Positivity

Positivity is essentially my theme.

Not sure if you noticed.

So, naturally, on my facebook and instagram I have been posting words of wisdom (and common sense) on pretty backgrounds. It seems that I’ve been getting ~20 likes a day, but I’m glad that someone is just listening to me.

I’d also like to thank Life at Any Size…because I bought an Erin Condren planner again. I had one years ago, and I’m happy that I’ve purchased it. Though my friend calls it my “white girl planner” because I spent $50+ on it. Nevertheless, I love the feeling of being organized and I think it would help me keep on track here as well.

Thanks,

Kay

Weight Watchers Update

I weighed in this week, and I gained 1.8 pounds.

I’m not entirely upset about it, which is a good sign. It’s never good to suddenly spiral into a depression because the week didn’t go how you wanted it to.

I knew that I gained weight when I went out for some pizza with some friends though. While it was tasty going down, my body was not exactly pleased about it being in my system. And by pleased, I mean, that it went down the wrong way, and there were too many oils in my system, and I essentially had bad bowel movements.

Like what can you do, but now I know that obviously I shouldn’t have such greasy fast-food such as that.

And when I do have that kind of food, I have gas.

And it’s a little bittersweet because I want to have that kind of food, but just because I want it, does it mean that I can’t have it?

No, but it’s better if I have it if it’s worth it.

Hope everything is well for you guys.

My home computer is kind of dying, hence why I haven’t been on in awhile. I’ll try to queue up some posts tonight, because we’re supposed to get snowed in.

Thanks,

Kay
