It’s the weekend!

Let me get this out of the way first. I gained .2 pounds again. I am 160.2. That’s 72.665 in kilograms and 11.4 stones. I had 29 net carbs yesterday and a total carbs was 60. Yes, you read that right. I had a lot of fiber and too many carbs. I was hungry! I ate 3 carb smart Breyer’s almond ice cream bars. I was having cramps. I couldn’t get full. Oh well. Here’s the thing – I’m OKAY with 160.2! Come on…last year I was 260 so why would I complain? I know why I gained again and I know how to fix it. And it wasn’t 2 pounds, it was POINT 2. So I just cut back to normal today, no biggie. I refuse to let one bad day get to me. Maybe that’s why this works for me. I am always back on track the next meal or next day. Anyone can do it. I promise! I’m here to help and support you guys!

I took Styled to get her hair and nails done yesterday. I came home and studied Anatomy for a while. Then I watched Netflix and I figured who would win The Great British Bake Off but the other 2 finalists I wasn’t expecting. I also watched Young and Hungry. I should have been studying more. Too late. I’ll have to study that much more today.

Today is a busy day.

9-11am: community service at a clothing shop with my new school group. I earn points for each event I go to. This actually lasts until noon but since I have a kid, I asked if I could leave early and still get my points and was told yes. I wonder what I am supposed to wear to this thing! I have my group t-shirt but do I wear shorts, workout pants, tennis shoes? Heels? Okay, I’d never wear heels. Lol

12-1pm: my sons therapy which is why I have to leave my group early. I told his psychologist everything that’s happened in the past 2 weeks so he has a inkling of what to talk about. My son doesn’t want to talk to me at all anymore about this kind of stuff. It’s so weird since just last year, we could talk about anything. Teenagers can be confusing!

1-5pm: study Anatomy (with Netflix breaks in between). I have a TON to study! I am hoping that by the end of tomorrow, I will know every tiny part of the cell and what they do. That’s mostly what my test is on I’m guessing. That’s what most of the lectures have been on anyway. That and the chemical makeup of the cell.

6-8pm: go to my sons godparents house to study math. My wonderful friend will help me get the homework and quizzes done. Then it will be up to me to do 100 more problems on my own to prepare more and get a better understanding of everything. While she and I do that, her wonderful husband is going to figure out why my back brakes are making so much noise and hopefully fix them. He was a mechanic in the army and until they had kids, ran a shop full time. He also helps me out when I have major issues with my car since he knows I’m broke (broke college student – that’s normal, right?).

I will probably be in bed by 10pm since I was up at 4:30 this morning for some odd reason. At least I hope so. I didn’t go to sleep until 11pm last night and was up early on my own so who knows!

Whew! It might be a long day!

Gardening update:

We have sprouts!!! It’s only been a few days and there are already sprouts of lettuce that have popped up! Either the organic soil my mom got is that awesome, talking to them works, or they just were really ready to grow.

That’s the Tom Thumb lettuce. I can’t believe how quick this was! I probably put too many seeds in one container but I thought that it could be possible that some seeds wouldn’t grow and also that these pots are bigger so there would be room. All of my gardening friends, do I need to replant or let these grow as they are for now?

The farmers market blend, black seeded simpson, and the salad bowl blend lettuces ALL have sprouts! The spices haven’t sprouted yet. And that’s normal, at least I think it is. So I must be doing something right.

I hope you all have a fantastic Saturday and go have some fun for me! I’ll be checking my Instagram throughout the day to see what everyone is up to.

Monday morning is here again

So yesterday my son had his “party”. 4 kids showed up. Whew! I was so afraid that there would be more! 3 boys and a girl. They hung out in his room and played video games and went outside to the playground. They had a good time.

I got to talk to one of the moms and she sent me a math tutors phone number. I called her and she asked if she could call me back. I’m still waiting. I’m also waiting to hear from the nutrition class, still! I emailed my advisor this morning because I am very worried that my other 2 teachers have uploaded lectures already.

I was walking Amber when I got home from taking my sons friend home and fell by tripping on the sidewalk. I’m not hurt that bad. I let my knees and hands catch me. I am such a klutz!

I have one job this afternoon with Ms. Forgets. Otherwise I will be listening to my first Math lecture. There’s already tests waiting for me so I hope to hear from the tutor quickly!

I made a cube steak for brunch yesterday. I topped it with cheese and cooked it in butter and it was yummy!

My really exciting news is that I decided to try on my sons old PE shirt. It’s a size medium and OMG, it fits! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, juliehcares, you have probably seen all of these pictures. I’m sure I have readers that don’t know though!

I am so excited about the size! I wore a size medium in 6th grade. Seriously!!! One of the other moms that came over told me I weigh less than she does now. She’s thin and I’m still like NO WAY. She said she weighs 162. She told me I probably wear a size 10 in clothes and should go shopping to check because it would make me realize how much I have truly lost. I haven’t because of the excess skin and I know I will have a HUGE muffin top if I wear jeans or something that actually fits. I guess I need to start wearing my stomach tightening stuff too.

That’s it. I hope you guys have a great Monday. I’ll be studying and working!
