I have always over identified with characters from books, tv, and movies. I throw myself into whatever world they inhabit and they become as close to me as family. The news of Robin Williams has truly left me heartbroken. His wit and kindness touched my heart and my mind. His movies were a huge part of my childhood and it's so painful to know that someone who brought so much joy to people was struggling so deeply. I was 6 when my favorite Robin Williams movie came out. I remember seeing it (on more than 1 occasion) when I was much too young to grasp it's meaning (my sister is 9years older than me, so I saw a lot of movies I didn't grasp). In high school we read A Separate Peace and followed it up watching Dead Poet's Society. It has stuck with me in a way that shaped who I became as a young adult and illuminated the line we tread between comedy and tragedy. To me his movies have always had such heart and I will remember that the powerful play goes on, and I may contribute a verse.

    I was quite saddened by Robin's passing as well. For some reason, it hit me. I have always thought he was so wonderful, right from Popeye to What Dreams May Come. What a tragic loss. He always seemed like such a wonderfully warm soul.

*Met 23wks: Friends/Family Dates: Last week I totally forgot to track that my out of state cousin was in town and we had dinner. Yay for family! So last Friday I was supposed to meet up with a friend for dinner and at the last minute she bailed so I ended up going to my brother in laws with my husband. Again Yay for family! I've heard others talk about this and it really does frustrate me. I have super close set of friends, but they don't live locally. I have about 1 friend that I make plans with and this is the friend that ditched me. So when I told my husband I would be coming along with him it was a whole sad show about how Cassy doesn't have any friends. It was so frustrating. I make acquaintances very easily, but friends is tougher. Most of the women I hang out with are girlfriends/spouses of my husband's friends. I have a few coworkers that go out, but not really one I can call on a Friday night. They have young children. I do attempt to make plans and most of the time I can get something going, but still it's hard sometimes. And yeah, a little bit sad. After all these feels on Friday night, the friend called Saturday morning and wanted to take me out to lunch. We had a great 4hour session, so basically I should settle down. I ended up having a nice weekend. I just wish I had more friends close to me.

Just Kidding- totally suitable :)
*7845:13000 Fitness Minutes- kept the Streak Alive with running, biking, 30dc, swimming (just 1day 600meters) and some random physical activity at the 2swim meets. I have 1day left of the 30dc and I am so looking forward to switching it up. I'm planning 30days of dance!






*158.91: 360Miles to Jog
*Met 148Days:Drink @least 8glasses of water daily
*Met 120Days: Eat @least 5freggies daily- I was closer this week w/4freggies 3days
*Met 111Days:Eat @least 60g of Protein daily
*Met 6wk: Maintain caloric deficit of 3500 weekly Interesting tidbit- I have lost 8lbs since the beginning of the year and I have only met this goal 6wks. I almost hate that this caloric deficit thing may be an accurate measure of weight loss because it is really difficult for me to do.
*Met 132Days:Sleep 7-9hrs nightly
*Met27 of 29Wks: Blog Weekly
*The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, sequel to The Maze Runner. I'm still intrigued by this series. I just don't know where it's headed. I feel like I should get it already, but I don't! It's much more vague than the other dystopian ya I've read and I kinda like that!: Read a Book Weekly

*Not sure that I mentioned we finally finished the Fargo tv series. I really enjoyed it. I mean the cast is fantastic. The comedy is just dark enough plus Colin Hanks is adorable. :Watch tons of Movies/TV Shows
