This summer is shaping up to be fantastic. I have next week off from work! On Monday we are going over to my parents for a turkey dinner with everyone. An afternoon of playing cards, dominoes and Apples to Apples! Wednesday we are going to Shipshawana with Rob's parents. When the weekend hits it's Festival time!!! I'm so pumped, I love Festival.

We have a few parties in June. The end of June will bring Amanda home. I have a date night with Drake to see Toy Story 3. Shannon and Mike's wedding in the day before our one year anniversary.

July has Renee's bridal shower that I'm planning. Fireworks for the 4th. I love fireworks. July will book up quickly I'm sure, so if you want to cement any plans get them in soon.

August seems pretty tame so far.

September is Renee's wedding. I can't wait to get my dress. It's pretty.

it goes both ways

I felt so good today. I woke up about 9 and had the urge to go walking. I rarely get this urge. I mean look at me!!! hahahaha. I usually walk around the apartment complex for up to 30 minutes. I decided to try out the trail by the apartment. I don't know why I've never done this before. It was so nice out today. I only came across one other gentleman on the trail. I took it all the way to Eastern. Instead of just turning around I went down Eastern to 60th to the apartments. I made it through the entire Circus album by Britney Spears.

When I got home I realized I had walked just over an hour. I want to do this more than once a week. Next time though when I get to Eastern I'll just turn around on the trail. Seems safer than walking down Eastern and 60th.

I know it isn't much, but I'm proud of myself. I had a frustrating week up to this point. I was mostly frustrated at me. Which then gets me frustrated at almost everything. So this was a break through for me.

Oh and I picked up the new Kate Nash album from the library on Saturday!!!!

food coma

I seriously think I had a small food coma last night. On Kat's suggestion we tried the Mexican place by our house. It was really good. We had an appetizer or queso with chirizo. For dinner I had a taco, enchilada, and the chicken off of what was suppose to be a chalupa. (I don't understand their version and it had beans on it. Yuck) For dessert I tried the deep fried cheese cake. I washed this all down with two beers.

After we got home I dinked around for a bit. Then I laid down on the couch and fell asleep until 10ish. I dinked around for about 45 minutes and then went to bed for good. I woke up at about 7:30ish this morning. I can't believe how much I slept.

bad recipes

I'm purposely freaking myself out here. For shits and giggles I looked up the sandwich I had a Red Robin on Friday to see exactly how bad it was for me. (I had my doctors appointment today and I gain some weight back) The damn sandwich was over 900 calories!!!! With the fries and beer I had with it that should have been all I ate that day. Then I took a look at the almost the same sandwich in wrap form. It should be less right? The fried onion straws were not on there, and it's a spinach wrap. Nope over 1100 calories. What the hell? Then I took a look at the salad my mom loves and gets extra dressing for. Without the extra dressing we are looking at 1400 calories. I need to stay away from restaurants! It's crazy how many calories are in stuff.

I'm hoping this scares the shit out of me when I go to restaurants or keep me the hell out.

What did I do?

I found a bruise today when I was showering. It's on my left calf. Pretty big. I have no idea how it got there. I'm thoroughly confused.

Hooray for me

I went to my weight to wellness appointment thinking I've gained weight. I mean I've been laid up with a bum foot and I haven't been eating the healthiest. I was diving into comfort foods hard core. Drum roll please....................... I didn't gain anything!!!! My weight stayed the same. I couldn't be happier. Now I just need to get this foot better so I can go out for walks and stuff.

My homework for next week is to get one serving a fruit into each day. For some reason this is hard for me. It shouldn't be. I like enough types of fruit to enjoy something everyday. We talked about trying new foods too. Rob was happy to hear that! I bought some strawberries. ($1 at Meijer this week) and some melon. I even cut up the melon when I got home to make it easy to access. In my food journal I now have to keep track of carbs. This I'm afraid of. Sure I can keep it to 1,000 calories and over 50 grams of protein per day, but I love me some carbs. At least she didn't give me a set goal. Just keep track of it for this week then we'll talk about it.

I'm in a "I need to be better at............" mood.
cleaning the bathrooms on a regular basis
returning emails (which is weird. It annoys me to no end when people don't return emails/voice mails)
opening up
being honest with myself
following through with my late night hopes and To Do List for the next day!

And here it is. To Do for Wednesday
Fold laundry
Clean bathrooms
I'll just keep it nice and simple.

16 and Pregnant

I can't watch this show anymore. (but I totally will) Today it made me want a baby right the hell now, and made me realize that I'm going to be feeling the same way as some of these girls at 30 plus years old. I'm not going to know exactly what to do all of the time, and there won't be a show for me to go on! Also I told myself I should be cleaning the apartment. If I can't keep the apartment clean when I have the free time how the hell am I going to get this stuff done once I have a kid? Honesty I think I was just in a mood until after we went to Jay and Theresa's tonight for cards.

I got my sleep results in the other day. I have mild sleep apnea. I stop breathing about 8 times an hour when I sleep. I have to go back in to sleep with a CPAP in a couple Mondays. Part of me totally wants this machine to work so I can wake up refreshed. But I don't want to have to sleep with this machine every night. Does anyone use one of these?

My foot is doing much better. Mom and I traded cars for this past week. She has an automatic. There was no way I was going to be able to drive my stick last week. Thanks Mom!
