Ugh, I’m so lazy. Diet’s going great, down to an almost not humiliating number on the scale. Another 15 pounds and I will post the number here! My diet buddy, the Professor, is doing better than me but he likes to remind me that this is because he had further to go. I think he is trying to talk me off a ledge but whatever. I took River and Bender for a jog today, about half a mile. It took fifteen minutes, after which I straight up felt my lungs implode.
No, I don’t care if that’s not actually physically possible.
I’m hitting one of my crazy motivated spurts again, hopefully this one lasts for a while. I decided to give up tea for lent (I’m not Christian, I just like the discipline of giving something up for a set amount of time). Squeaky wants to protest that. TOUGH FOR HER. As I recall I gave up the tea, caffeine, and processed sugar for Lent last year and I lost like 12 pounds, so let’s get back to that! You know, I’m kind of tempted to do a Girl Scout Cookie binge tonight and give it all up again this year. Or I could go full Paleo for Lent, that’s a fun and slow suicide. I will have to give this some thought tonight.
Photography is going well, it’s painstakingly slow but progress is being made and really that’s what counts. My website is now not only pretty but can be found by Google, which I consider a plus. I mean sure it’s on page eight of the search but that’s not the important part. I have no friggin idea how people do this crap, I’m making it up as I go along. If any of you know any more about SEO tagging than I do, speak now!
I’ll also be going to school to finish my degree next semester which is both exciting and depressing (you know, that whole knocking on 30 while I get an Associates Degree part), and I’m torn on how annoyed I am that the school only accepted two of my transferred classes. Basically I now have to retake all my basics or try to test out of them, but on the other hand I’m going to have a way higher GPA now because I had a bunch of failed classes and Incompletes as a result of my wayward and misspent youth.
Completely unrelated, I’m watching Julie and Julia (not a good program to watch whilst dieting) and I find myself craving artichokes and sauteed mushrooms. Not together. Maybe together. Whatever.
Debt is still borderline out of control, this winter was SO much more hard that we realized, financially. People kept telling us it was bad in the winter here but we thought they were exaggerating because the summer months were so good to us. Lesson learned. Luckily we have some pretty great friends/landlords who are giving us time to recover and pay the bills when we’re able to.
Growing up sucks.
I keep hearing great things about the Dave Ramsey method but I’ve also heard it’s extremely religion heavy and I’m concerned I’ll tune out the actual message because that aspect of it is distracting me. I’m going to try to give it a read anyway because the worst thing I can do is try, right? If it doesn’t work I’ll find another method that does.
They really need to put home economics classes back in schools.
Well, that’ll do it for now. Check back next week for more exciting adventures!
OH! I’m retraining our dogs using the Cesar Milan method he explains in his book, “Cesar’s Way”. It’s working like gangbusters and I highly recommend it.
