Zero - I'll take it.. I guess.

Sometimes I feel like my life is like a clock - Standing still though the time doesn't stop.

Saturday I had my 4th weigh-in with WW- and nope I didn't lose any weight I stayed right where I was. I was expecting that though, because I had been sick for a week and getting back into working out was tough. I hadn't worked out the week I was sick so when I did work out last week, I got SO sore and It made it extremely hard to work out after that. Though I did one other time.. totaling my workout to only 2-times last week. Plus I was slacking on keeping track of my points and it came back to bite me in the butt.

I am such an ALL or NOTHING type person that once I fail just a little - I have a tendency to give up! I expect perfection or nothing at all. BUT I am not going to do that this time. I am working hard on giving myself grace and trying hard to just use all the set-backs as learning experiences. So, I told myself today is a new day and new day to keep track of all my points and a new day to look forward to the future. :)

In different events - I finally finished the Curtains I have been making for the living-room! They turned out great. Kevin really loves them... more than I imagined he would. He actually likes them more then I do. He says they complete the room even more and make it feel more like a "home". That was the goal. :)

I took pictures of the curtains, but I am very hesitant to post pictures because the pictures make the curtains look like PLASTIC! The curtains have sheen to them so the reflection looks funny- I might post some close ups so you can see the pattern and style. :)
They are very modern/contemporary.

School news - If someone could PLEASE DROP-KICK me in the face that would be great!
I was a very bad student and didn't finish my final paper yesterday but thankfully my teacher has been kind enough to show me mercy and has given me a 2 day extension. I really needed this because if I fail this class then I will need to pay to re-take it (my Continuing Ed won't cover failed classes). I have definitely learned a lesson though. I am bummed because I might have to miss Derby practice tonight because of needing to work on homework.. Annoying, but it is my own fault. :(

Oh well, anyways, that's that.

**20 days till I turn 24 &

**22 days till Kevin turns the BIG 2-5!


  1. Don't get discouraged. You can get back on track. Will be praying for you! Also, ca't wait to see pics of the curtains!

  2. Can't wait to see the pictures of the curtains! I'm getting annoyed at finding ones for our house because I don't like ANY and was thinking of making my own.

    You can do it! It is hard to change your lifestyle but it will be worth it. You can look at it in the positive too, you didn't go up. :)
