Today is just an update because I haven't posted one in a week.
I haven't weighed myself in a while. I was so excited to have hit the 50 pounds lost goal that I didn't want to spoil it for a while.
I still have not ordered my fitness tracker. I have had lots of input from others and just need to bite the bullet and purchase one. I have a few friends that I have reached out to that have not provided their information on the ones they use. My plan is to have one ordered by the end of this week regardless of whether I have heard back from them or not. Realistically I can order one and probably sell it and get a different one if I end up not liking it.
I rescheduled my hair appointment for next week. I am still really excited to get it done. I will be working at my mom's store the majority of the day tomorrow and then heading to a friend's house (Maggie...I don't usually put names in here, but she is one of my very good friends and I spend time crafting with her so you might hear her name more than this). I will be helping her set up for a big day of crafting on Saturday. I'd love to say that I will spend some time crafting, and I may, but more than likely I will end up running around helping others. I love helping people learn new things and just seeing what everyone else makes. It really is a wonderful thing when people can come together to enjoy their passion.
I've been sort of down this week. I started feeling sick on Sunday evening (just a cold) and ended up taking the day off on Monday. I was lazy yet productive. That means I sat on my butt and did homework, played games, researched for school, and researched things for my blogs (I'm slowly learning HTML coding and how to make more fancy things). Yesterday I was absolutely miserable, but had an awesome day at work. I found out at the beginning of my day that I did not get the job for which I had interviewed. That is okay. Although the hours would have been great for me, I feel that this solidifies that the path I was taking before my leave for surgery was the right one so I will continue down that path (leadership). I had a couple of meetings, a job shadow, and a group listening session (where we listen to calls and learn from them).
I have found that I can eat more than I could a few weeks ago. I'm eating anywhere from 2-4 ounces of food at each meal. I tried a recipe for Protein Squares. It was okay. I made it in a 9x13 pan but they were very thin. I think I will use a smaller pan next time. Also, they turned out very dry to me and I even added a little more liquids than the recipe called for. They have great flavor, but I will be making some tweaking some things for next time.
I have tried pizza. Actual pizza. From a pizza shop. It was okay. I ended up taking a few bites of the flavored crust and just eating the toppings from the pizza. It was delicious. I still love the Wonton Pizza Bites I mentioned before, but it was nice to be able to eat something that everyone else was having (we had it while at a friend's house).
My boyfriend has been using my Torani sugar-free syrups to flavor water and carbonated water so that he doesn't buy and drink much soda. This has been a great change for him and he's enjoying mixing the flavors. It is nice to have support with the changes I have made in eating as well.
That's about it. I'm signing off to jump in the shower and get ready for my first day of on-campus class this semester. I have not taken a class on campus in a long time. Wish me luck!
