I Say There's a Reason Things Happen

Life updates: I took the spin instructor training today.
Just need cpr and to pass the test.

Also, 211pounds

Who’s coming to my class? ! ?

211

So an interesting thing happened. I missed a weigh in, because it’s been so hot I’ve been drinking tons of water and usually my weigh in is on Mondays. If I eat I won’t weigh in right after and then I go to spin and won’t weigh in after that because I feel a ton will be water weight.

So I missed a week then a couple days. I weighed myself a couple days ago… 211! That’s four pounds lighter than my last weigh in. This is literally the lowest I ever remember being.

I also delay weighing in because I just don’t feel lighter and feel like I’m not going to be lighter do why bother.

What’s funny is that 211 surprised me so much. And now that I read the weight in the scale as so low, I’m like well….why isn’t my body a size smaller like I expected it to be? Where as on weeks where I feel like my body looks so good and has shrunk and I step on the scale and it’s like only one pound down or even up I get annoyed. Now I’m annoyed because I feel like the scale has changed but my body hasn’t.

Lesson learned, be happy about the change no matter what it is. Know that it is a process, not everything is going to line up all the time and a ton of it is mental. As long as I’m giving it my best week to week, I won’t have to do this forever. I also eventually won’t have to live in fear of going back to where I was, because I’m speaking that I won’t be in fear of that.

There’s nothing like a Supreme Court decision to bring out and enrage the uninformed masses. When these things come along I like to use them as a purging tool for my Facebook and Twitter feeds. I don’t delete those who disagree; I delete those who go completely bat-crap crazy, posting Jezebel article after painful Jezebel article about the decision. If I found myself saying “what an idiot” the…

Haven’t worked out in for days.

The struggle between balancing mad extra work hours to pay off loans and making time to work out so I can enjoy my time.after I don’t have to any more. It’s real.

My ambitious goal is to pay off loans in a year. Meaning $1400 a month for the next year.

Day off you say? What even is that?

The more things change, the more things stay the same. A whole new generation is about to learn some important life lessons from Cory and Topanga. Or, if you’re a child of the 90s, it’s TGIF all over again with “Girl Meets World.”

If I watched t.v., I would watch this

I really want to get “A Thousand Years” on my iPod but I can’t get the original without some ugly Twilight cover. So I’m really hesitant. 

You know you’re a nineties kid when you thought she meant the Vanessa Carlton song.

You REALLY know you’re a nineties kid when the song from Vanessa Carlton is A Thousand Miles

You really really know you’re a nineties kid when you acknowledge that not only is the Vanessa Carlton song not titled “a thousand years” nor was it actually released in the nineties but you’re subconscious is so programmed from that era that it made you think of it anyway.
