    ER and Zoe, thanks--your good luck offerings must have worked

    Angie--aw, I hope you feel better soon. That sounds miserable

    Tweety--great job about going to the gym. Whenever I plan to go after work, I always end up too tired, but you're doing well

    Sarah--are you planning to work as an LPN? We had the option of testing after our first year and I'm glad I did. I was working as a CNA before, so it ended up being a pretty good raise and the experience was invaluable. I bet you ARE looking forward to July


    Finals are over, I had a nice lunch with friends then went on an awesome bike ride. Found out the secret to riding is wearing the padded shorts--you'd think my rear end had enough padding, but I guess not Now that I don't have homework to do, I'm kind of at a loss. . . But guessing I'll get used to it soon enough, LOL.

    And BTW, y'all can call me Graduate Nurse Hiker now

    Sorry to hear about the yuckies Angie, but hopefully you will feel better soon! Congrats on the weight for both of you - WooHoo!

    Yeay for the gym Tweety! I have been walking after work and I am feeling much better because of it. I plan to go for my walk just as soon as I can get home today!

    Congratulations GRADUATE Hiker Nurse!!! WooHOOOOOOOOOOoooooo!!! I am sooooo proud of you!

    Hi and healthy living to everybody else!

    Hiker, I don't know if I'm going to work as an LPN or not, I really want to, but I have a very flexible job and make slightly more than a LPN right now, so I may just stick with it and hold out until I become a RN. I am thinking of going ahead and taking the PN boards anyway though so that if I want to do something here or there, I have that option. Haven't fully decided yet. I sooo wish I could work as an LPN, but I know that for my family and my need for a flexible schedule, the job I have now is the best option.

    Well, I have been getting in all my water and veggies every day and am really excited about that and finally, this week, about 3 people have commented on my weight loss, so it must be showing - yeay!

    Take care everyone & have a happy, healthy day!

    Hi everyone!
    Have been trying to catch up on everything since we got home. Chores are caught up, work is caught up, school is on right on track. First class back to school has been interesting. I feel like I'm trying to stear the Queen Mary with a row boat paddle, trying to get my brain into gear to be writing papers! Submitted my first paper (English Comp 102). Final weight post vacation is exactly the weight I was when I left on vacation - WOOOT! Pizza and beer, Mexican food, Emeril's, cheesecake, etc. all 'happened in Vegas & stayed in Vegas'!!!
    Ms. Graduate Hiker - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! You make sure to have a party to celebrate!!!
    Angie - Congrats!!! I do the same thing. I don't believe the weight is really off until it stays off for at least 3 days in a row! Hope you are over the crud really soon! Congrats to DH as well!
    Muffie - your focus and tenacity are inspirational! My personal carrot consumption is up as a result of your example.
    ER - thanks for those prayers! No news at the moment.
    Sarah - you could view the LPN boards as a dry run for NCLEX. Good idea sticking with the flexibility. It's worth it's weight in gold, especially while you are in school!
    Tweety - Good job on the after work gym schedule! I keep hoping to pull that off, but usually am either to distracted and come home via auto pilot, or too pooped. The few times I have pulled it off I do feel better, it's just getting there that seems to be the issue.
    Greetings to everyone I missed! Gotta go review a few things and take a quiz!

    I went straight to the gym today afterwork. The bad news is I stopped to get unhealthy chinese food for supper and ate too much. I need to get on the ball with cutting on overeating. sigh...........

    Hi everyone, just a quick check-in today. Feeling totally crummy, head's stuffed and achy, and I'm feeling generally icky and nauseous.

    Something's going around and I've apparently gotten a dose. So back to bed with me as soon's I decide if I can handle a couple of Tylenol.

    Anyhow.... today the scale said 233.
    Hope you are feeling better and did I congratulate you that the scales are going down?

    I am just happy that mine is not going UP!

    Dear GRADUATE NURSE Hiker! yowie KaZowie! [BANANA]You GO girl!!![/BANANA]

    As to the seat - well that makes sense, no wonder last summer was so "hard" (get it? lol)

    That's kinda sad that a nurse makes less, don't you think? Or did you have some ed. prior to the job?

    When people tell me that, it derails me for some reason I don't know why =--

    What was her exact comment? I saw some spoof on TV where they said a politician pushed Sheryl away from him - and the pretend newscaster said the reason was that he didn't want her poopy fingers on him ...

    Congrats Bluehair - to not gain on vacation is awesome!

    As to steering the QM, I had to laugh - what a good way to put that!

    I sympathize! Foods with a good dose of carbs (pasta, rice, chips at the Mexican restaurant) ALWAYS induce me to eat until I'm ready to explode! What was that old Lay's commercial - betcha can't eat just one? When it comes to carbs and salt I can hardly stop at one bag. ESPECIALLY if they are in combination!

    It's nice enough now - but I haven't because I was so recently sick. It's time though! We have crocuses and our white birches are starting to bud

    Now if I can get past the [BANANA]Chicken! Bwok, bwok![/BANANA] !!
