Been a little while

Sorry for being away so long.  Life has a way of getting in the way of taking a few minutes and regrouping….yeah know.

Anyway…Life is good.  My business is picking up which is a good thing :0)

The weight loss journey has had it ups and downs but I do have this to share:

In January these were tight and now I can say that I am down pretty much 4 pants sizes.  Scale hasn’t changed much but when I saw this picture it gave me the faith to keep on keeping on.  People tell me all the time that it looks like I am dropping weight….Now I believe them!

Still struggling to give up pop.  Need to work at that a little harder.  More water.  More exercise.  Its almost the cold months so Hopefully I can get back in the grind of things!

Anyway thanks for stopping in!

What Else I think today

I got new glasses yesterday.  Normally that be a big deal but I am amazed at the fact that I can actually see better.  I knew I needed readers, I do a lot of computer and close up work but I also had to get a bit of help with my distance.  I can see things don’t get me wrong but, I can now see them clearly :0)  Didn’t even know this was a problem.

Had my first lab today.  Geology my old friend is back again.  This time with more historical things for me to learn.  Keeping finger crossed.  However I am going to need to get a smaller group.  One of the guys is great and the other two are just waiting for someone to give them the answer.  This could be bad.  First lab and only one question confused me.  That is progress being I didn’t get most of the last labs till the end :0)

Why don’t people talk in the elevator?  Is it because they have nothing to say or the fact that they think the other person really doesn’t care what they have to say.  I am a talker.  I talk to who ever when ever really.  Just in general stuff…what floor, have a good day.  I even say good morning to my fellow class mates as they com in the door to class.  I think this is a good thing and I am not going to change that.  Not one bit.  As a matter of fact I may even do it more :0)

I am really enjoying my picture a day assignment!  Mr P and I are making our rounds.  Thinking he may need to go on a vacation with someone…where should he go?

Well I am making tacos for dinner tonight.  Guess I should go get that ready!

I need to make me the change!  Make a difference!

Jan 8 A new semester

Looks like I will be attending college another semester….YEAH!  I am trying to be excited.  I have never been the school kinda person.  Socially yes I am so there but academically….Not so much.  It’s not that I am doing bad, I just feel like I have to do better.  My own worse enemy really.

I could download one of the syllabus’ I need. The study guide is a crossword puzzle.  I am not a fan of these at all. But they are worth extra credit and I need all the extra credit I can get.

I will arrive early.  I hate to be late.  It all going to be ok.  I have my bag packed except for snacks and all is well.

So off I go.  I’ll let ya know how it goes!

Weigh In Day

Well there is good news and bad news. As luck would also have it a story to go with it.

I had my normal morning classes and then headed to the gym for weigh in day.  I did my normal routine….Put it on the last weigh in take a deep breath and let it out and step up.  When I did I got a shock…It said I gained…not only did I gain but I gained 2 pounds. I stepped of and did it again.  In disbelief I got on the treadmill and tread for my 40 minutes to figure out what in the H$&# I could have done to gain 2 pounds.  I knew there had to be something wrong.  SO I head back over to the scale and I do my routine again..this time looking down and realizing I still had my shoes on.  Who knew my shoes weighed 2 pounds.  I’m sure some of you did…lol  I kicked them off and am happy to report that there was no gain of weight!   That was enough to get my heart beating rapidly for sure.

No weight down but 3.5 inches off my body.  I’ll call that a WIN!

TIll next time…..

What would I do if I wasn’t afraid….

As I was talking with a co worker today about things I want to see change in 2012 she asked me a very interesting question……….What would you do if you weren’t afraid? I had no answer at the time but have been thinking about it since then. So here are a few of my thoughts on this:

-If I weren’t afraid of what people thought of me I would let people see the real me.
-if I weren’t afraid of failing I would already have my own studio and be doing what I love to do for myself.
-if I weren’t afraid to share my feelings with people they might actually know me better
-if I weren’t afraid of getting my heart broken I would let people closer to me
-if I weren’t afraid of the unknown I would be able to let go and not always have to know what will happen next.
-if I weren’t afraid of death I could accept the fact that I’m not going to be around forever and start telling people in my life what they mean to me(I have been working on this one)
-if I weren’t afraid of going places by myself I would get to see more things, ex. art museums, parks
-If I weren’t afraid of change I would have already finished school, stuck with my weight loss goals, being big I just kinda blend in stay out of the spot light. So now that I have a plan I’m going to change this :0)

There this is a good start to this list. At least all I’ll bore you with tonight ;0)

Till next time…….
