Sunday study day

Last night I studied. I ended up getting a 100 on quiz 14 and a 70 on quiz 15 and a 48 on the practice exam so I know I have more work to do today and tomorrow to be ready for the exam on Tuesday. I’m getting those math functions though!

I returned my sons shorts to target for the size large. I decided I had to go check out shirts for me because I noticed the medium didn’t look so tight anymore while I was at the therapists office yesterday.

So how many of you remember the movie The Goonies? Well, I adore this movie and when I saw a long sleeve t-shirt with it, it was like it had been sent to me. So I bought a size small thinking it won’t fit right now but it can be my next goal. Guess what?

Holy crap, I am still in shock a day later! So I am wearing it today because I am so thrilled by this. I don’t care that it’s tight across my belly and boobs, it frigging fits!!! A SMALL!!!

I also bought some Halloween candy at Target and my mom already got into it last night. She had 2 mini Almond Joy. When my son finds it, the KitKats will be gone. That leaves Hershey’s chocolate and Reese’s peanut butter cups left for Halloween trick-or-treaters. I actually threw out the candy in the jar because it was a year old. That’s how much candy I eat. I have to buy more because it sits in the jar for a year without being touched. That’s okay with me though.

I also got a new steering wheel cover at Autozone since mine decided to come apart. It’s not what I wanted but that’s okay. It looks just fine.

Okay, I have to pick up my child, take him to church, and then come home and study. Y’all have a great day!

Lazy Saturday morning

It is very nice to just wake up early and not do anything for 2 hours! I was up at 6am and have not gotten out of bed except for the bathroom and to get food. Ahhhh

Yesterday was pretty good. I didn’t blog because I was passed out by 9:30pm! I took Styled to get her hair washed and styled and that was it other than her normal grocery shopping. All of the people at the hair salon want me to get them some treats from the bakery when I go back next week too. How funny! And this one girl knew what place I was talking about before I even finished my sentence. So I will do that for them. Everyone there is nice.

I picked up my son at school (half day) and brought him home. Then I studied math and even got an 80 on a quiz without my tutor helping me. I’m proud of that B! My exam is on Tuesday so that’s all I’m doing this weekend. Study, study, study! I have an A- in the class right now so I want to keep it and make it an A to offset the C’s in my other 2 classes.

I never heard back from the guy so I was right that he just wanted a booty call. Oh well. That’s his problem.

I made my schedule for the spring semester at school. Over the holidays, I am going to take the precalculus class to get it over with. That’s one month of doing nothing but math but that will be the last math I have to do so I am going for it! I am then taking the 2nd half of Anatomy and another nutrition class in the spring along with the anatomy lab. I will be at school from 8:30-11:30 on Monday, and 8:30-10 on Tuesday and Thursday. That leaves me plenty of time to work, study, exercise, cook, etc. I think this will work out much better than trying to stay at school all day twice a week. Your thoughts?

I found out last night that it’s about time for me to end my HealthyWage challenge. I have been paying $15 a month since February and am getting back $388 for hitting (and passing) my goal. So I made more than 100% back. I can’t complain about that! Now how long it will take the money to get to me? I have no clue! I hope soon, that will help get my son something for Christmas.

I hope y’all are having a good weekend. I’ll chat with y’all later!

Howdy

I used to love the cold. What changed? Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t have all those extra pounds to keep me warm! I don’t really know, I still like the colder weather but now I want to be completely bundled up to even THINK about walking outside and it’s only in the 50’s and 60’s! What will I do in 2 more months when it will get down in the 30’s and 40’s??? Lol – I will dress in more layers and appreciate the cold because I definitely do not like the heat! I got Amber ready for the cold weather. Actually my mom bought this for her. She was not thrilled as you can see! This girl in my anatomy class was showing this picture from my Instagram to other classmates and now I have new followers on there. Okay! I won’t complain about new friends! 😀

How has your week been? I got a C on my nutrition exam and I am happy about it! I just want to pass this class and never take another online class at this school. I have a math exam on Tuesday and another nutrition exam the following Wednesday with an Anatomy exam on Thursday. It’s going to be rough but there’s only 6 more weeks of school so yay! Speaking of, my classmate wants to come over and study. I don’t want to! I think I talked her into not coming over. Thank goodness!

This morning 2 of my classmates text me and asked me to save them a seat. Then class. Then I did my homework and walked over to the dorms to eat lunch with H. She left me there for a class and as I was walking out, this guy from my math class stops me and asks me to come sit with him. Well, I did and he decided to chat with me for 2 hours! I know WAY too much about him now. 😂He seems like a nice enough guy, around my age, doesn’t have a car, lives in the dorms, and has a part time job. He told me all about this young girl he sees in the library and how he won’t chase her because “girls like her want the chase”. Umm, okay dude! 🙄

I’ve been eating way too much lately so I am going to get back on it for the next few weeks to make sure I don’t gain more than the 2 pounds I have already gained plus lose those damn 2 pounds. I have no clothes to wear if I gain any weight which will help me stay on track. My friend M asked me about going walking with her and I told her anytime. She and I usually go get a margarita so walking is definitely better! Now to see when she wants to go, maybe tomorrow. 🙏

So I drank my water today (going back to not drinking my 8 glasses (4 bottles) a day was too easy. And going to eat keto again. It’s obvious I can do it, I did it for 6 months! So yeah, it could just be the water, it could be that I’m eating carbs, it could be a lot of things but I know I did well on keto so back to it I go!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend. I have my normal Friday morning job with Styled and that’s it. Another slow week here job wise. A friend told me to look into office jobs on campus since I’m there anyway. I need to go do that. Talk soon!

My blog

I haven’t had a bunch of time lately as you may have noticed. I’ve been jumping on and off. I finally caught up with everyone’s blog and I’m happy to say that my friends are still here and posting away! Yay!

I had a good day at school. Anatomy (eh). I went to the tutoring center and was NOT impressed. First off, they don’t have a tutor for Anatomy. So I was told to sign out and sign in again to see a math tutor. I got this kid that was very disinterested and you could tell he didn’t want to be helping me. After about 5 minutes with this guy, I said screw it.

I went to the library and did my Anatomy homework. Then I met H for lunch at her dorms. This girl came up to me and asked me all about what I was doing in school and that she’s not in school but there with her church. She talked to me for 5 minutes while I was waiting for H. I even told H thank you for getting here. I’m sure she is a nice person, I just didn’t feel like talking much.

Math, double eh!

After school, I took H and went shopping. I didn’t want to drive her back to my side of town to go to the Galleria so we went to Gulfgate shopping center. It’s so sad now! There was a Ross and a Marshall’s but not much else. So we went both places. I needed underwear badly. All of mine are what I had before I started my weight loss journey so you can imagine! After looking at both places, she talked me into getting boyshorts. I don’t know about them, I’m washing them now to wear tomorrow and I guess I’ll find out! I got the cutest houseshoes too!

We were in the mood for something sweet so we were kind of driving aimlessly looking around and I found the motherload of a place! If you don’t know me very well, then you don’t know how much I like Mexican food. Well, we found a Mexican bakery! The place was packed with Hispanic people and there were cases of all Mexican treats everywhere! I should have taken photos but I wasn’t sure if I should.

Check out what I got though! These are not for all at once or even one a day, it’s for when I want a sweet treat. The sprinkles cookies are for my son since he loves sugar cookies with sprinkles.

These excited me more than you guys will ever know. I seriously think I was born in the wrong culture. I can eat homemade Mexican food and desserts all day every day. Seriously!

So I took her back to her dorm, she got all of the above plus flan 🍮 so she was happy too. Then I came home to do laundry that I’ve been putting off and study. I have a nutrition exam this week. I’m not taking it until Thursday. I then have a Math exam on Tuesday. Then my anatomy exam is the next week along with another nutrition exam. Eek!

That’s all. I am trying to use my time more wisely and study more which is why my posts have been short. I have a job tomorrow taking Cranky to her dermatologist. Woo hoo! Lol

Have a great rest of your week!

Cooking and studying

I made a meat pie and a chicken stuffing casserole today for this week plus some sausage for breakfast. It poured down rain most of the day and we are finally in the 50’s here (58)!!!

My friend H came over this evening. We did our math homework for the week and ate dinner. She said it was all really good, I agree (but I cooked it so I better).

That’s it for today. I hope y’all had a good Monday!

Korean Festival

In case I have any stalkers, thanks for not following me around today! Lol

I had a lot of fun! I was there around 2-3 hours, walked 8,000 steps, and ate all the good food! No kimchi though. I don’t do shrimp and they didn’t have vegan kimchi. Maybe next time!

Korean Dumplings

bubble strawberry tea

Bubble waffle in a cup. It’s just a waffle but it was SO good!She called this a burrito…it was yummy!

Some kind of Korean ice cream treat with beans, fig, almonds, ice cream, and something else in it

K-pop ice popMacaroon cookie with fig in the middle (I think it was fig)!

Here is my math friend Z. She’s the one that invited me and I am so glad she did. I didn’t buy all this food. We both bought it and both tried everything. We each spent $25 on food too. 😲

I enjoyed the k-pop music, the women playing the drums, the people in costumes, and the dancers!

All and all, a great afternoon! I studied all morning, well, 4 hours to be precise. I did all of my Anatomy work and half of the nutrition work. I obviously did not finish my nutrition lecture but I will do more tomorrow before I go learn functions at my friends house. I am taking tonight off of studying. Going to have a beer and watch Netflix!

Have a great night!!!

The past couple of days

Have been a whirlwind. I have been studying my butt off! School was good yesterday. One of the girls in my math class invited me to come to the Korean festival here this weekend. So I talked to BFF and she may come too which would be awesome! Get to hang out with my bestie AND have fun? Plus my son said he is going to a friends house this weekend? Sounds good and like a fun weekend to me!

I started talking to this guy. He’s actually the guy who was my first. We were 16 and dating and he hung my bra on a door at his friends house and we had sex for the first time, for both of us. Almost 30 years later, he wants to go out (maybe?). He sent me his address and said to come over whenever. I told him how busy I am but that I would love to schedule to go out sometime and his reply was that we can schedule something and that he was going to bed, at 8:30pm. So either he really just wanted a booty call or he goes to bed really early! I guess I’ll see if he contacts me again. 😕 🙄

My other bestie leaves for Israel today. I wish I could go with them! That would have been fun. I love her family and call her parents mom and dad. Every time I go to Kansas, I’m asked to stay with mom and dad, and mom wants to feed me. 😂

I’m working today. My one job this week taking Styled to get her hair done. I think I am going to go by and see Cranky too. Ms. Forgets said we would go to the bank this afternoon too but she may cancel on me again so I’m not counting on her.

Weight: I gained a pound this week. Probably because I have been eating more like the silly doctor said. So that doesn’t work either. Guess it’s time to visit with a nutritionist and get a schedule that works for me. i also only worked out 3 days. 2 days walking at school and one day in the gym. That could have something to do with it too.

So today through Sunday:

Friday: Work and study

Saturday: Korean festival, hang out with bestie, study, wash everything in the house

Sunday: cook and study

Sound like a fun weekend? 😂
