Ok so I am wondering about Making the Cut, which I just started reading today...should I have read Winning by Losing first??
Came home late because I'm starting to pack up my classroom and also had a meeting to create next years' classes. Um, came home and sat around, went to pick up dinner, and then got on the stationary bike for 50 minutes while I read. I'm really proud of my dinner because I feel like I made a good decision given the lack of healthy options.
We went to a seafood place that's famous for it's fried foods. In the past I would've ordered a fried shrimp basket with french fries or mashed potatoes and a side salad(which in my mind made it slightly healthy). Ewe
Tonight I ordered pineapple salsa grilled chicken breast with green beans, matchstix vegetables, and a side salad. Yes, I ordered 3 sides, but with purpose. I immediately saved half of it for lunch tomorrow. Actually, I saved half of the chicken and all of the green beans and matchstix veggies. Ate half the chicken and the side salad with an unsweet tea for dinner.
Upon finishing my small dinner I immediately put on my workout clothes and headed to the gym. Now I'm showered, my son had his bath and is in bed, and I will soon be in bed too. Another good day:-).

Ok I went calorie crazy yesterday at dinner...
Two of our closest friends and their newborn are moving away and we went over. My boyfriend and his buddy fixed my car...which was leaking water into the passenger side and messed up my carpet! It was a freakin swamp in there! So they saved me a few hundred:-). Anyway, we ordered pizza and drank beer. I ordered my side with veggies only but still made some damage. Also had a few beers. I tracked it and ate over 2,000 calories yesterday. Bummer...
So I woke up with a good attitude and just decided to hit the gym and forget about it fast! Reading the Spark has really encouraged me to be positive and not get down on myself for making mistakes...that's how the downward spiral continues. Instead, I have to continue to build upward.
So I had ff milk and fruity cheerios for bfast, a grilled chicken salad with vinaigrette for lunch, and working on dinner. I only have 2 chapters to go and am gonna finish the book today.

Ok...breathe...is what I am telling myself.
I opened my big mouth and got my mom and gma all hyped up about a surprise party for my dad. I actually planned to do this last year but it all fell through. He is turning 51 and is the oldest of 4 brothers. He is also the most stable and respected one of the 4, and has managed to remain married for 25 years while the others have divorced and had their share of troubles. Anyway, he is still hard at work and is extremely selfless so he deserves it.
Now...I am planning a party for NEXT WEEKEND(I am an idiot) from 300 miles away!!! So here's what has to happen:
1. Mom has to email a pic of my dad when he was a kid, so that I can make an invite online and then have them sent to their Walmart so they can pick them up and distribute ASAP
2. Mom has to reserve the pavillion(it has to be in cash) on Monday before they get all booked
Note: My mom is a procrastinator, always late, always forgets things, so I'm nervous about #1 and #2
3. Urge the family to buy the food early this week so we'll have it ready to cook on Saturday morning(although this won't happen, I'll probably drive in Friday night and they will ask me to go buy it)
4. Buy decorations(this is about the only thing that I can control from over here)
And of course what's a party without drama...turns out my little sis, who also lives 350 miles away from home will be in town but has to leave Sunday morning. My older sis, who lives in town will be a church retreat until Sunday morning. The issue...whether to have the party Saturday without my older sis, or Sunday without my younger sis.
It was just supposed to be a low key thing with my immediate family but my grandma decided to ALREADY invite her brothers and sisters(my dads uncles and aunts)...HOLY CRAP
Anyway, I'm going to just get the invite started online and save it. Then I'm going to search for decor online at Party Pig, Party Universe, etc. That's all that I can do right now.
Going to watch Shrek and then go for a jog later on today. Oh and my car is totally messed up! It is soaking wet on the passengers side and behind the passenger seat because the AC is leaking water!!!

So I came home, ran to the store, came home to devour my dinner and bake a cake. Tomorrow is my school's 10th year anniversary so we are having a big carnival. My class was chosen to represent Kindergarten so I've been practicing a dance with them everyday. I also signed up to help make a cake quilt and had to bake a cake and decorate it with the letter E. Didn't get too creative and just made a yellow cake with white icing and an E made out of jelly beans. I am also volunteering to run a booth at tomorrow's celebration. It's been crazy!! All that and I've had tons of paperwork, tests, and deadlines.
But what's numero uno on my mind is health and fitness. I had a super busy evening and decided not to workout so that I could read a few more chapters of "The Spark". I don't feel bad for not working out because I stayed within my calories today and am getting a mental workout while I read;-).
Excited for tomorrow!

Totally didn't feel like working out today but finally got up and moving and did the shred level 2. So glad I did that.
Nothing else really happened today...except that I had a somewhat bad dinner when I went to Pei Wei. I made sure to pack half of it first for lunch tomorrow and then eat the rest. I was actually full off of that...can't believe I used to eat the whole thing!!!
Anyway, it's past my bedtime and I have to go to sleep.
Currently reading The Spark...so far so good.
