I apologize for my lack of blogging recently! Honestly, I haven't even had time to sleep, much less post! Hopefully, that will change soon :0). Thank you for all your comments and for checking up on me :0) I really appreciate it! I am feeling much better. It took me a while to shake that cold off! Well, there's so much to talk about I don't even know where to start! I'll make some bullets so I remember what all I need to update you on. Ok here we go..beware, it's LONG!
- Bryan in Germany
- Charity's graduation
- grad school
- end of the 2 week challenge
- weekend plans
Bryan has been in Germany with his younger brother Colby, visiting their older brother Jason and his wife Whitney for the last 2 weeks. Jason is in the military and is stationed in Germany. They've gone to Paris and Berlin, so I'm totally jealous. However, that jealousy will be somewhat less when my wonderful boyfriend comes back with lovely gifts for me! :0) Who is spoiled? That would definitely be me! I've missed him...this is the longest that we've gone without seeing each other since we met~3 weeks. Not so bueno. He has been great about e-mailing me and calling me whenever he can. He's the best! Thank goodness I get to see him tomorrow! He's coming HOME!
This past weekend I flew to Lubbock for my sister Charity's graduation from Texas Tech. I flew out on Friday and flew back to Dallas on Monday. The weekend was filled with great adventures at the hotel, bowling, talking to Bryan (all the way in Germany), good food, good fellowship, and just good quality time! Here are some pictures from her graduation.
I finally finished that horrible class that I've been suffering through the past semester. I took my final and got an 87, so I was happy with that! I ended up getting an A, so I was really excited! I now started this past Monday, my May mini that I'm taking. I'm so glad because we're taking it with some of our favorite professors, and this class has been such a breeze! It's such a wonderful change from the hell we've been going through this spring! This class is exactly what it's supposed to be..GREAT! This has been such a relief for me. Thank you God! The best thing is that I'll be done next Thursday and get 3 hrs of college credit! My classes are every day (except Friday's) but they don't last that long. We've been getting out each night around 7, and we're supposed to go till 8:30. ;0) I'm so school happy :0)
Because I've been so busy running around like a chicken with my head cut off, and been sick, I haven't gotten in many sessions with Mac (my personal trainer). I won't get to either this week because of my May mini schedule/me going out of town/him not having the time I needed. Hopefully next week will be better! I did get one workout in with him last week, but that was when I was sick. Probably not the best decision I've ever made, but I suffered through. It was the hardest workout of my life..and I wasn't able to give my best, and I almost passed out..and I was sick! I was mad at myself for not being "on my game", but Mac said he was really impressed with me. He said most people wouldn't have come and worked as hard as I did. He said that I was a "beast". I took it as a compliment. :0) I don't think I've technically lost a lot of weight because I'm gaining muscle, but I feel smaller, and my clothes are fitting better! I can't wait to be measured again and see what my results are!
END OF MY 2 WEEK CHALLENGE
Yesterday was the last day of my 2 week challenge from Mac of no sweets, fried foods, or cokes. I am very proud to say that I did not have ANY of the above! I was very surprised that I was able to do it, but I did. During this time, I would have thought that not having cokes would be the thing I would struggle with the most; however, it was not having sweets for me that was the worst! This weekend was the worst of the worst! In Lubbock this weekend, we hung out with some family friends, and the mom, Shana is the BEST cook ever! She has a cake business and her cakes are to die for! This weekend I almost cried when after dinner she brought out this, HUGE, BEAUTIFUL, HOMEMADE, CHOCOLATE CAKE!! Then she also had HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! I could tell they were my favorite too..extra chewy and chocolaty! HOWEVER, I did not have even ONE BITE! I was tempted to though..seriously, I should get some award or something! :0) Overall, the last 2 weeks weren't the best of my life, but I definitely didn't die from it. I've learned to modify all the things I eat, and definitely drink more water. But I'm sure glad that it's over with. And the Snicker's that I just bit into is yummmmyyyyy! ;0)
It's almost over with! WHOOOOO HOOOOOOO! 13 more days! I can make it! :0) Oh summer, I smell you coming!
I'm so excited about this weekend! I'm going to Shreveport tomorrow for Rachel's graduation. I haven't been to Shreveport, my new home away from home, in over 3 weeks! It's about dang time! Plus I get to see my baby, and spend some quality time with the Moss family! Can't wait!
Well, that's about the end of my updates. Hopefully that will satisfy you blog sharks ;0) Just kidding...my wonderful, blog, friends! You're the best! Love ya'll!
