Saturday morning

Good morning everyone! I have been busy exercising and doing school work, finishing Friends (I cried at the last episode), and taking care of business. I did keto 2 full days this past week and got back into doing exercise so I went from 153.8 last Saturday to 150.6 this morning. I know it’s mostly water weight but I’m still excited!

This week in exercise:

I know it’s cut off but I was just showing you that I am doing it every day again and so happy that I am! I feel better when I exercise daily. I proved that to myself this week.

Yesterday one of my best friends told me that Five Below has exercise equipment so I found a store and went to check it out. I got a yoga mat (finally – I’ve been needing one so I’m not doing yoga on my carpet), an exercise ball, as well as boxing gloves and 10 pound dumbbells. My son was even happy and promised that he is going to use the boxing gloves and get back into hitting his punching bag.

My week in calories:

Last Saturday: 750 calories over (this is what made me start up again – too much Jules!!!)

Sunday: 20 calories remaining ( just watched what I ate)

Monday: 400 calories remaining (Full keto day and I wasn’t hungry most of the day)

Tuesday: 250 calories remaining (another full keto day so wasn’t too hungry)

Wednesday: overate by 700 calories according to what myfitnesspal wants me to eat (I went overboard with candy because it was in my room and now it’s gone thanks to my son and his friend eating it all)

Thursday: 180 calories remaining (half keto day, I ate 55 carbs)

Friday: 600 calories over what myfitnesspal wants me to eat (I ate all the carbs yesterday and it showed me how much more hungry I get eating carbs!)

After this I still lost this week because I got in my exercise and I drank tons of water. I started drinking at least 4 – 16.9 bottles of water a day. Myfitnesspal says I should be eating 1430 calories per day which I think is low so I am not going to follow calories this week, just keto, and I will let you know next week how that turns out.

We are going on vacation one week from today so I want to be down a few extra pounds so I don’t feel guilty eating whatever I want while I’m gone. I will also get back on track when I get home!

I found a ton of funny stuff on Tumblr and want to share.

I joined a plank challenge and want you guys to think about doing it too. It starts easy and I am a day late joining but planks aren’t bad (or is that because I do yoga anyway?).

Hugs to all. Enjoy your weekend!

Howdy!

How are you guys???

One day doing keto and I dropped almost one kilogram. 2.8 pounds. I know it’s just water weight but it made me so happy! For breakfast today, I had egg, bacon, and cheese so I’m full and happy. My mom was happy as well since I made enough for both of us. I made taco meat last night which I had with cheese and a few saltines. I ended up with a total of 35 net carbs yesterday. I am definitely getting into my keto groove and will be under 20 net carbs today or tomorrow. I am going to do my best to avoid keto flu again by getting enough vitamins and drinking tons of water. My friends are doing it too so we are all helping each other. That makes it so much easier!

I have my Anatomy lab book and a bunch of note cards ready to go to work today and study. The last exam in this class I made a 100 so I want to do that again. This exam is over the layers of skin and bone tissue. 😳 I can do it though. I also have until Sunday to do two more chapters in my kinesiology class and read 2 more chapters for nutrition. Did I tell y’all that I changed my major since I am changing schools?

I want a job I can do anywhere in the world so I decided to go for physical therapy. People do that everywhere and I can get a job with one of those traveling companies that sends me places to work. That’s what I’m doing! I am just fine with it too. Now I just need to find a job until then. I am not getting rid of my clients either. I will just help them when I’m not working. I want to save as much as I can between now and when my son is grown in 5 years. He says he wants to live here and go to a local college for as long as he can. I think he may change his mind but if that’s what he wants, great!

I danced last night for exercise for 30 minutes. Just something small that helped me move more. I am going to try and do arm strength training today. Just so I’m not just sitting around and it should help me lose an extra ounce or two.

I am taking Smokey to her shrink today. Well, if she doesn’t cancel on me. She does that quite often. We need to go because her meds were changed last month but we shall see. I will study for my exam all day whether I take her or not so whatever. I called her this morning to remind her but her phone is off the hook. 🤣

I’ve got my protein bar ready to go in case she doesn’t cancel. I still had some from doing keto so I don’t have to buy anything. Plus I never stopped using almond flour. I do have crackers and sugary stuff in the pantry but it’s so processed that it won’t go bad anytime soon and if it does, oh well.

Oh. If you think your phone is not listening to you, I have news. I mentioned to BFF that I am looking for a job and last night, Tumblr only put this ad on my feed. Be careful what you say!

Y’all have a good day!!!

I need my blog groove back!

I don’t even know when I posted last! Not much has been going on. Just studying and watching Friends mostly.

I am back on keto after gaining 8 pounds in 10 days. I want to be under 150 for spring break and I’m at 155.2 this morning!

I’m on season 9 of Friends because I took a couple days off studying. I have an Anatomy lab exam on Wednesday so I am studying today after I had class this morning.

Amber pooped in my bedroom this morning so I’m a bit frustrated with her too. And my son is not taking care of her. Yet he wants a puppy???

Well, the other day I went to Long John Silvers and wanted to get some fish and hush puppies. While in the drive through, the elderly gentleman behind me lost his footing on his brake and hit my car. Thankfully, he had a grill guard and didn’t hurt my car. He scared me to death though!

Anyway, I am going to go study. Have a great day!

Hey guys!

I’ve been doing what I said I would when it comes to studying. I had school this morning and then had to work so I did a couple of Anatomy lab online exams tonight. I got an 80 and a 75 so I’m happy, I passed. These are just chapter exams, they only count for 10% of my grade so no big deal. I cuddled with Amber in between tests.

I took Cranky to meet a new pulmonologist today. Her regular one decided to move to California so they got her a new doctor. She seems nice and said Cranky is doing good and doesn’t have to come back for a year unless there’s a problem.

I’m already on season 5 of Friends too. I like it. I do wonder if this show would work now though. I don’t think they would have hung out like this with all the electronics today. They even had beepers in this show! Oh! I finally saw the turkey episode for my socks too. Really funny!

I am up late tonight, I know. No school or work tomorrow though. I am taking my son to the orthodontist so I get to sleep in. I do have a chapter to read for my Anatomy lecture class but I can do that while my son gets his braces tightened.

Nothing else going on. How about y’all???

I am doing well!

Past few days have been good.

I got my first 2 postcards in my mailbox! I am so excited and can’t wait to get more!

I took my exam and I got an 80! Woo hoo! I am SO thankful that I did not fail like I thought I was going to.

My son fell in love for the first time. I wasn’t looking for a family edition but, well, he fell in love!

This dog is part lab, part yorkie, and part chihuahua. It is SO cute!!! I just hope my son will take care of it and train it like he says. I don’t have time or money for a second dog but I will love it!!!

We went to a birthday party on Saturday in Katy TX (nowhere near me) and while the kids played, I went shopping because there is no way I am driving back and forth twice. I finally found a new zip up hoodie at Katy Mills Mall and I got a new pair of tennis shoes. I forgot how awesome Reebok’s are! I am really happy with my shoes.

I am on season 3 of Friends. This is a great show! I’m having too much fun. Not enough sleep but loving the show! Lol I made a rule to keep me on track with school. I have to study an hour for each class and THEN I can watch some episodes. I am starting tonight turning off electronics at 9:30pm because I want to go to sleep at 10 each night. I need sleep! I studied all four classes today. I feel great about that.

I had brunch with my friend Maria on Sunday before my exam. One of my other friends kindly delivered Girl Scout cookies today.

I am going to go watch Friends. Have a good night!

Been lazy

I got better on Wednesday. I was lazy about blogging because I had a quiz yesterday in Nutrition. That is followed by an exam this weekend.

The Anatomy exam I ended up with the following grades which worked out to an average of 88. 80,75,80,100,90. My Anatomy Lab first exam I got a 101!!! Woo hoo! So I feel like I am doing pretty well. Let’s hope that I do okay on the nutrition exam.

While I was sick, I started watching Friends on Netflix. I like it! Now I can’t stop watching. I am almost done with Season 1 and there are 10 seasons! I’ll be watching this for a long time. It’s good though.

I have worked. Wednesday and today. Miss Priss and I ran errands for 3 hours. I had her sit in the back seat and kept my window cracked to make sure I didn’t pass anything to her. We went to a grocery store, vitamin shop, dry cleaners, and even Walmart. I did some people watching while she was shopping after I went to get her Chick-fil-A. Crazy people that go into her Walmart!!!

I took Styled to get her hair dyed this morning and set an appointment to get mine dyed before I go on vacation. I went grocery shopping for her while I waited and then went back and did some Anatomy homework. I had emailed my professor on Wednesday to let him know that I was sick and would be back on Monday and he finally emailed me back today telling me that we don’t have school on Monday but he would see me Wednesday. Yay!

For Valentines Day, I decided to get my Costco membership back. Then I went and got new pillows and some toilet paper. I hadn’t gotten new pillows in quite a while and since we both just got over the flu, I thought now was a good time to replace them. I also washed all of our bed linens. I also decided to move my sons bed into the corner (it was a couple of inches away from the wall). When I saw all the trash under his bed, I left the mattress off until he cleaned and vacuumed it.

It’s all clean now and he has a friend over.

This afternoon, some old neighbors cane by to pick up a few board games and hang out. I also got them to take 3 Christmas boxes of stuff! They helped me pick up the fallen boxes in the garage and I have bad news for anyone that was hoping I would send them a Santa. The box of Santa’s fell and most broke. Well, good news for me as I wanted to get rid of them. I am excited to be cleaning all this stuff out. It’s so nice when things are clean and organized and minimal crap. It was nice to see them!

I got a new award for not smoking. I love my Cue! And the guy on the right vapes as well so we had a blast today.

See you guys later!
