Hershey Park was awesome. I was so so nervous about not being able to fit in the rides, but I fit fine. In fact, I seemed a little less stuffed in them than last time??
My boyfriend and I are HUGE roller coaster people. I, however, hate wooden coasters. I don't know why I dislike them so much, but I do. He made he get on the Wild Cat, and I barfed. I was lucky to not barf on the ride itself, but waited until I got to the bathroom to blow chunks. After, I had some Sierra Mist and sat for a little bit, I was ready to get back on and ride the other thrill rides.
My fave ride is by far a roller coaster called Fahrenheit. It cranks you up at a 90 degree angle (appx 121 feet) drops you down at a negative angle, inverted loop of about 107 feet. It has a corkscrew roll and a few other loops and turns... it is by far the most awesome ever!
My second fave ride is called Storm Runner - it is another coaster and it starts off by shooting you out at 72 miles an hour - ascending about 150 feet, then a vertical drop of 180 feet. Now, the drop speed it about 75 miles an hour. Then there are loops and drops and stuff...
here is a great conversation..
*standing in line for the Sidewinder*
Annoying little kid : "Have you ridden this coaster before"?
Me: "Yup, I have been riding it since I was about your age"
Annoying Little kid: "Wow... this coaster is THAT old"?
My Boyfriend: *snicker*
I wanted to slap that little punk! When we got off the ride, I saw him meet his mother, and I soooo wanted to tell her to teach that boy some manners! My boyfriend is still laughing about it.
I have an appointment on September 21st to talk with a doctor about weight loss surgery. It is a seminar type thing, and I will get more info then. I spoke to my family doctor, who once again offered me diet pills, but said that she thinks this will be a good idea. I have spoken to a few people I know that have had the surgery done, and they all are very pleased with the results. I am still not 100% sure this is what I want. I will know a lot more once I talk to the doctors.
A stray kitten showed up in my Grandmother's neighborhood. I thought the neighbor girl was going to adopt her, but apparently, instead of adopting her, took her to the shelter and dropped her off. If I would have known that, I would have taken her. So, I am going tomorrow to fill out an application for adoption if she is still there at the shelter, and I am hoping to spring her. Her name will be Lucy, and she will be Leroy's sister. I am sure he won't be excited at first, but he will get over it. It will be nice for him to have a companion.
Oh, and I had an awesome Saturday planned. We were going to hit Rails to Trails on our bikes. Now, my Boyfriend is helping his dad with a welding job, and I picked up an extra 12 hour shift at work for overnight.
I think that is it

I love my job. I do not love my job when there is severe weather.
I work for a trucking company. We have a pretty decent sized fleet of at least 800 trucks.
A chunk of them were out on the road in the northeast this weekend
It was brutal.
I am going to bed

My blog titles are always really lame. I can never think of a good one.
I called today and scheduled my seminar for surgery. I am still not 100% sure this is something I want to do, but after finding out I qualify for it, I am going to check out some more about it.
The good/bad news is, since I am right at the line, I really can't lose any weight. The good news is, even if I keep up with what I am doing, I still won't be able to lose weight anyway. So, it is kind of a win/win kind of thing.
I still don't know what to do. I think going to the information session will be a big help. The lady was really nice, and she told me I am welcome to go to the support group and talk to people who have had it and stuff. I have asked a few of my friends that have had it done as well, and they are filling out questioniares that I have made up.
Leroy is starting to resemble a bowling pin. We have nicknamed him "pin" because of it. I don't know why he is getting fat. He is also shedding more, which is giving the Boyfriend a meltdown. I caught him vacuuming the kitchen table. ocd much?
I think that is all for now

If I thought I would make enough money working at Subway, I would totally do it. I have thought about getting a job there part time and maybe working a few days a week. I doubt it would be the awesome job that I envision, but I think it looks like it would be a lot of fun.
I bought some thin sliced chicken breast today and am going to make low carb pizza tomorrow. I am not on a low carb diet, but I am hungry for pizza, and I think this would be a better alternative.
1 chicken breast pounded out to be about 1/4 inch thick
2 tablespoons of pizza sauce
1/4 cup of part skim mozerella cheese
turkey pepporoni, onion, green pepper... whatever else sounds good
I also bought a frozen lean something or other pizza as well.
I am hoping my bike will fit in my Jeep. I want to go for a ride tomorrow!! If it won't fit, I guess I will go to the gym. I know that I will not be renewing my gym membership at The Summit. When I lived at home with my parents, and had to drive by it, that was one thing. Now, it is out of the way. I have to drive 30 miles round trip if I want to go to the gym.
Friday we are going to Texas Roadhouse for my parents 35th anni - and I can't wait. I love Texas Roadhouse! More importantly, I am looking forward to having dinner with my family. I don't really have to look at the menu and plan ahead, because I get the same thing every time. 10oz prime rib (rare) salad w/ french dressing and a baked sweet potato (which I never really eat, because I am chowing down on a bloody piece of dead cow)
I think that is all for now
