Well, I had a busy, busy semester and pretty much disappeared. The semester is thankfully over! I’ve missed tumblr and the outlet it provided for me. I miss being able to just blog all my overthinking thoughts away. There is just so much in my mind that I just want to blog because its annoying to go and tell people all the random thoughts in my mind. There is so much on my plate: being a full time student, my three jobs, and moving in with my boyfriend.
School has ended for the semester but I’m picking up two summer classes and those start at the end of June. So, its nice to get a tiny break but still getting stuff done. One of my jobs has calmed down for the season since hockey is over (and yes, we won the President’s Cup - pretty pumped about that). Although, its baseball season so that job has kicked in at full swing. And then I may have added another weekly shift to my job at the jail, which I am looking forward to! And I started packing up my apartment because we’re moving in exactly one day. Its a mess. I had this huge fancy plan about the moving process. I started in one direction and yeah to a degree it was successful I got rid of 1 trash bag worth of crap, a box to recycle, and half a bag of stuff to donate. But I have so much stuff that doesn’t have a good…place to go yet and I’m not 100% where in the new apartment it will go since I’m moving into a smaller apartment. So tomorrow I’m going to try a different route and just go from there. I felt extremely defeated today but I had to remind myself, 1. I still have a month and 2. moving is never as easy as it sounds!
I need to invest in a couple more storage containers. Ideally I would like to pack everything 150% organized and perfect so I can take it to the new apartment and it would make it so much easier…but its expensive to suddenly jump on the organizing bandwagon.
Tomorrow is a new day with new accomplishment and new challenges.

School and life is kicking my ass. Its week 3 and I still cannot figure out a schedule. The first week I was just tired all week long. Last week I was so concentrated trying to include exercise into my week. And now this week I’m so concentrated on catching up with homework. Eventually I will figure out a schedule.

I range between the sizes 18 and 20, it depends on the store, of course. Well, my mom has been dieting and could no longer fit into her size 14 skinny jeans so she gave them to me as an incentive. Well, I have the family butt, which is actually a joke because all the women in my family lack a butt, no matter how big we are. So I have this big belly and no butt which makes jeans extremely difficult. So these 14’s fit me amazingly in the butt and a tad tight on the legs, and impossible to button…but they at least fit 50% - MOTIVATING!
Also, my mom bought me a pair of size 18 skinny jeans for Christmas and they’re a style that I should’ve went one size up. My mom asked if I wanted her to exchange them? And I said, no, I like them the way they are now and I want to be able to fit into them.
So since Christmas I’ve subconsciously been eating healthier. I haven’t went straight for it at all, until this weekend. I tried on my skinny jeans again and I feel like I was even closer to fitting into them.
So, I got myself up at 6 this morning with every intention of working out for an hour. After about 20 minutes I was dripping with sweat from my work out video and gave up. I have 4 other videos I’m going to rotate through this week. So, tomorrow I will probably struggle with my video again but eventually I will be able to dominate those videos.
In addition to those morning work outs I’m going to try to walk at night, but there is so much snow right now but its starting to melt. I’m definitely going to force myself outside because 30 minute a day alone would be great but on top of my morning workouts? I can do this.
And I’m getting better at eating healthier. I’m learning I don’t always need to make a side of pasta with my meats. And I’m learning what healthy foods I love to eat and ones that I hate to force myself to eat. I don’t want to feel like I’m missing out on anything when I’m eating and I’m learning to have my love of food and eat it too (or some fancy phrase).
Also, breakfast, breakfast, breakfast. The days I eat breakfast is when I eat the healthiest and make adequate meals. Unlike those days I snack on a skimpy breakfast and then I’m starving at lunchtime and pick one of the worst meals possible.
I can do this. I seriously have to take it one day at a time and think of my weight loss by that day’s success and not by the lost weight’s success. I can do this.

So, its required to take a nutrition class for my program. I’ve been looking forward to this class because I’ve decided to go into a food related field and I want to see where Nutrition in Hospitality Place will take me. Anyways now that I’ve set up the beginning of my story…During class today we were talking about food trends and of course obesity became a big topic of discussion. And some of the comments that were made really made me feel awkward. I wasn’t the only obese person in the room but the comments were coming from fit people who said things like: That’s so sad or I heard one girl say: that makes me sick. I know I shouldn’t let it bother me that much but I let myself get attacked by their comments.
I think this class will be very good for me. This was the last class of my day so I headed back to my car which was on the roof of the parking garage. Normally I would take the elevator. I walked up all the stairs (all 5 floors). I was so winded but it took a little extra time out of my day and seriously being on campus 4 days a week I could run up those stairs effortlessly in no time. Its a the little steps that add up.
