The homework monster got me


He's a mean little bugger and he keeps me up too late at night. I didn't even get to work out last night because I had to get a stupid paper written. Booo. Why can't my professors just trust me when I say that I read the book and understand the material?

Anywho, around 11 last night I finally finished my work and got to preparing my stuff for the day today. I somehow decided that hell 11 PM sounds like the perfect time to de-seed this pomegranate sitting on my counter. I'll have it as a snack  tomorrow! Awesome!!

THEN once it's all done I decide hmmmm, I really LOVE pomegranate juice. Maybe, just maybe I should mash this all up and make some! Best.Idea.Ever. So tasty. I put it in the fridge to get it cold and this morning added it into my shake. Ok, so I drank a little too. It's awesome by the way, my shake that is.

No real plans for this weekend. Lot of cleaning, but I think that's it. I know, I know, I'm the life of the party. Settle down people, there's enough of me to go around.

H has been trying to negotiate with me though because she wants to go see her friends this weekend. So that will probably happen and I'll hang out with their mom because she's the awesomest kind of awesome.

Friday's YouTube link:

You have to watch, well listen to this. It is friggin' hilarious! It's a clip from a local radio station a few years ago. They used to have this segment called "The Snake Show" where you would call in if you thought your significant other was a "snake" and was cheating etc. and then the DJ would try to trick the person. Listen to this one all the way through, you can thank me later.

Guess who's back? Back again....

Ok, I need to get back on this whole blogging thing. I know I've been slacking. (I haven't even been doing my homework) I've just been in this crazy weird slump and I've decided that enough is enough I am going to make myself get out of it.

I was under some super uber crazy stress and had been for months. Then, in less than 10 minutes it all went away. BAM! Instant. So I was left in the sort of stupor not really knowing what to do and I've been having to figure out how to function again. When all of the stress hit, I took it in stride and just coped with it because I really didn't have much of a choice. So now it's been kind of strange to not have that burden any more.

I know it's Wednesday and that means weigh-day right? Nope, not today. I was too scared to face that damn scale. I'm a chicken. I know it. I can admit it.  Remember that slump I was just talking about. Yup, it included losing all concept of my goals, not giving a damn, not being able to keep my hand out of the candy bowl, drinking a crap ton of soda, indulging in waaaaay too much booze, zero exercise, and just all around bad behavior for someone that is trying to turn their life around health and fitness wise.. I'm worried that I gained back everything that I've worked so hard to loose. I may work up the courage to weigh-in tomorrow. I may wait until next week. I'm not really sure yet.

Today has started off good. I will keep it that way. I will either do C25K tonight or JM depending on if my grandma is home or not. If she's home, I will run, if not...here I come JM. I will also finish and turn in my paper that was due on  Monday. And I will start my assignments that are due this week.

Have I mentioned that I hate being an 'adult' (and I use that term loosely) sometimes?

Funk that!!

I don't know what it is but I have been in a crazy funk all week and I just can't seem to pull myself out of it. I haven't wanted to blog, read the blogs that I follow, haven't wanted to do my homework (not a big surprise there), haven't given two craps about my weight loss or what I eat (baaad news folks), I can't even convince myself to read a book. What is wrong with me people?! Not a clue.

I was amazed Wednesday morning though to see that I had only gained .6 pounds and not some ridiculous 2, 3 or 4 like I was expecting.

These came into the office in celebration of Halloween:




Took the kids Trick-or-Treating. They had a blast. My brother and I were both zombies, H was Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and my mom was a cat. (I didn't even take pictures! This is crazytown people, Halloween is my favorite holiday! Where was my head?!) My mom snapped this picture of me though:


Here are the pumpkins I carved. Well, H helped pull all of the "yuckies" out:


Here's the neighbor dog in his costume sniffing my puppy-sitting puppy of cute overload:


aaaaaand here's a pumpkin that we passed in someone's yard that was just freakin' awesome:





Yesterday was uneventful, today will likely be uneventful as well. I need to talk myself into working out. Blech, I just don't want to. I think I need a vacation away from everything. Maybe that would help pull me out of this dumb funk.

Oh, and before I forget, Happy Friday!
