Healthy You Challenge

Lately I’ve been in such a funk where I don’t care, and I’m unsure why? Maybe its been cause, I’ve recently went back to school. I’m either busy chasing after my 2 year old daughter or the fact of trying to meet deadlines for school. The work for school is pretty easy, I have to say I’m doing pretty well for being out of school for almost 10 years. I’m currently taking 2 classes. A general class that I have to write this survival guide to going to college as my final project. English 101 its on how to effectively write essays. I have a 95 in the General class and a 93 in the English 101 so,I think I’m doing okay. Most of the things I’ve been graded on is grammar errors and I honestly think I could do better. I may over look something, or I might make some careless mistake. I guess I should apply myself a little better than I am if I want a better grade.

Okay, on to The Healthy You Challenge. I’m not doing well at all. I’ve actually went up a pound. I’ve not been walking cause the treadmill is in the storage shed and its so HOT in there!!! I’ve not been playing on the wii either. I got the Wii-Fit and haven’t used it much. My husbands cousin lives with us and My Wii is in his room cause there is no room for it anywhere else. I feel either I’m too busy with school or chasing after leah to get to play on it. I don’t like playing on it when he is in there or he maybe watching tv so, I don’t always get to :(( I guess I need to make more of an effort in trying to get on there for at least 30 minutes a day. Its just my husband works late and usually has to tend to the farm animals and no one really to watch leah. So, i let my time for any Wii session take a back seat. I know I really need to workout though. I ordered the 30 Day shred and only done it once. This house we live in I’m not sure but, I think if I did those jumping jacks on there that everyone would think there was an earthquake or something. I guess I’m not making an effort at anything besides caring for my little girl and doing my school work.

I also won a Weight Watchers Online Membership for 3 months and I’m really not using it very much at all! I figured it would be much more encouraging to want to eat better but, it hasn’t. The forums seem dead to me. I will post messages but get few responses if any at all. I guess I should take advantage and at least find some good recipes. I guess I just feel discouraged that this is an impossible feat right now. I have a little under 100 lbs that I’m wanting to loose and it just seems impossible.

Missing in Action

Sorry I've been away. I've been so busy lately. Its been so crazy. I started school on June 8th in which, I've decided to become a teacher. I know there are alot of teachers who inspired me so I can only hope I can do the same.
I've got enough financial aid left over that I can get me a new Laptop for school. Yah me! I think I've finally decided on going with a Apple MacBook Pro. I'm going with the new 13 inch Macbook Pro. I'm getting 4G memory with the 500GB Harddrive. I can get a free iPod Touch I've got the 1st Generation iPod Touch but, my husband has been wanting one so, thought I'd give him the old one and I'd keep the newer one since it has the speaker system in it now. I'm also needing to get me a printer as well, so I will need to get that in a few weeks too. I can go through the apple store and get one pretty much free but, I can get it one fairly cheap at walmart too that will work just fine. In both the classes I'm taking I'm doing pretty good. I have a 95% in my English 101 and my Gen Class I've got a 93% so I think that is pretty good so far. I'm hoping the next time I blog it will be from a Mac.
