On a mission to be completely honest with myself for the first time in my life...and lose more than 100 pounds.
When your weigh in was accepted did you get an email? Or did it just go from under review to XXX pounds under Initial weigh in?
After staying up till 5 am last night (because of napping until 8 pm) I am up and ready to tackle today. I have a list of 45 things to do over vacation and I already got started last night.
Abandoned property claim…check!
Today is banking, hopefully getting my car serviced, sending some emails and acquiring some craft supplies.
Since I took a four hour nap after school today I am awake at 1:30 am and just filed my taxes online. I owe a bit…nothing like what happened last year! No crying this time.
I also put a claim on some lost property that I have. Don’t know what it is but we’ll see what happens.
As much as I want to rest and relax over vacation I really want to pull my life together. I want to get my living space in order, finish my bedroom renovation, and scrub my kitchen.
I also need to apply for summer jobs and get my resume ready to send out for next school year. My financial situation is in serious crisis and I need to get it under control.
I just need to think about how wonderful it will feel at the end of vacation when I’ve accomplished the 82 billion things on my to do list.
I also signed up for Diet Bet because I need some forced motivation. I need to get into a fitness routine and really examine my eating.
Adulthood sucks sometimes…but it will suck less when I get things in order and have less to worry about.
Last school vacation of the year…it’s definitely needed! I woke up to a sore throat today so I’m hoping that after a good night’s sleep it will be better. I refuse to be sick over vacation as I have too much stuff to do.
Also…I’m such a procrastinator but I’m thinking about being a joiner and doing the Diet Bet thing…maybe.
You have a terrible night’s sleep.
And you can barely get out of bed.
And a kid almost punches you.
And you have a meeting during lunch.
And you have a meeting during your planning time.
And you get pulled out of your meeting and forced into approaching the principal about a job for next year.
And you feel uncomfortable.
And you leave your phone at school and hope it won’t be stolen.
And you get your car serviced. And they give you an $1800.00 estimate for things that need to be fixed.
And you get a medical bill for your echocardiogram.
And your credit card bill is due.
And your cable bill is due.
And all you want to do is eat ice cream and hide under the covers and never leave again.
But then you come home and check Tumblr to find that you won Jen’s giveaway!!!! Talk about turning a day around! Can’t wait to get mail and play with all the fun things inside. Thanks sooooooo much Jen!
Vacation is just two days away!!!
Today was yoga day. It went much better than last week since I didn’t almost pass out this week. I rocked the class until the last pose. We did a supported bridge with your butt on a chair, your feet in the air, your shoulders on the ground on a bolster, and your head on a block on the ground.
Um….how ‘bout no.
I just envisioned myself flipping the chair over and cracking my head open on the wood floor. I just said I’d try another day and chillaxed in shavasana. But the whole time I was in shavasana all I could think of was how hungry I was and how I couldn’t wait to get home and make dinner. Today was one of those days where I just nommed the world. I was hungry all day long. Needless to say, I didn’t really achieve the whole quiet mind part of yoga today.
As of late, Tuesday’s have been sucky. But today was just a good all around day. I woke up early. I had a smoothie AND cantaloupe so far today. School wasn’t stressful…I actually felt like the kidlets learned something today. It is GORGEOUS today in MA and I got to spend recess and gym class outside. After I got home I had me some couch time then headed out for my first walk/run of April.
I’m back to walk/run intervals of walk 4:30 and run :30.
Did two miles today and was starting to get discouraged that I’ve lost any and all fitness I had. But then I said, “Amy, you gave up for a while. You can’t expect this to be easy. You’re going to have to fight and claw your way back to where you were.” And then I was just like…YEP.
I desperately wanted some chocolate milk after my walk/run but I’m doing this no chocolate thing for April. But I’m thinking that maybe I’ll allow just chocolate milk after runs…not sure.
So now I’m going to relax with the window open and some noms.
A - Wake up all snuggly in bed. Don’t have to go to work!
B - Going outside. It looks so beautiful but it feels so cold.
C - OMG THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE THAN DRIVING AROUND WITH A GREAT SONG PLAYING AND THE SUN SHINING THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD. IN MOMENTS LIKE THIS I FEEL INVINCIBLE, LIKE ONLY GOOD THINGS WILL EVER HAPPEN.
D - Dad says there is a diamond in the safe waiting for me IF I EVER GET MARRIED.
E - I try on a billion pairs of sneakers because I want to get back to running. So excited!!! (Don’t end up buying any.)
F - Try on a bunch of things at the GAP outlet and felt super terrible in everything. OMG I’m so disgusting.
G - Talk with my parents about starting my cupcake business. Parents actually listen. I get excited.
H - Mom makes a joke about me being sterilized and that someday I might want to have kids.
I - Head home ready to bake some cupcakes and have some me time.
J - Sit on the couch and watch tv.
K - Dinner on the couch and watch tv.
Charging the Garmin for tomorrow. I WILL DO SOME MILES. Also stay tuned for lots more thoughts from my crazy brain.
As I was making the banana muffins I had this feeling that I was forgetting something…and that the batter was kind of thick.
Fast forward one hour and I open the microwave to heat up my dinner. And lo and behold what do I find? 1/3 cup of melted and rehardened butter.
On the up side they are minus 1/3 cup of butter healthier.
