I got my school stuff all worked out, so long as my teachers don't go on strike, the vote's tomorrow. I'm able to work more now, and it'll pretty much all be going to dancing. I had a good lesson today, other than my ankle being a little annoying. I don't know what I did to it, it just started hurting and kept getting worse. But it wasn't bad today, just annoying. One thing I kept messing up today, in the swing, when my instructor would switch between single, double and triple step I always messed up, and I keep messing up the timing in the tango, I don't pause enough on the slow steps. He did say I was getting gtood at following though ^_^ of course he always he always says I follow well.
On the way home from my lesson I was so tempted to pick up some dinner on the way home, but I didn't ^_^ Then when I got home though, I didn't feel like cooking so I had some soup and a banana. I was short on calories, protein and fat, which is very unusal for me I'm usually over. So now, before bed, I'm going to have some cottage cheese for my protein and some walnuts for the fat and then then I'll be good for calories too. I got my breakfast and lunch all planned out for tomorrow too, because I'll be at school all day. For some reason I have alot of willpower today, hopefully it sticks around ^_^
Have a nice week everyone!!!

As long as my teachers don't go on strike I think things will work out well this semester. The course I failed, I'm not going to do the labs again, just the midterms and final. I'll keep my previous lab marks. Then I'm going to drop 2 of my classes and do them online in the summer. They're just my general elective and active citizenship. So, I'll have 2 half days I can work all semester. That money will be going to dancing and my loan money and money from my parents will go to living expenses and school. I was really worried about things before but now not so much. I think it'll work out just fine ^_^ I also have this huge presentation I need to do in the fall and I might be able to do it only for the teachers and not the whole class, they said I might have to go to disability and tell them why I don't want to do it, but that's ok, I'll still be nervous, but not as much ^_^ My parents will be getting money from some shares they have and they said they'll give me some to pay off my credit card and to use for school.
I know I didn't need to explain my finances to you all, but I'm just so happy that I won't have to stress so much about it now. Finances are always a stress causer for students lol.
Have a nice week everyone!!!

I'm doing pretty well so so far today ^_^ I've got in half of my fruits/veggies goal, I did day 2 on the EA Active, and I'm doing well so far with my calories. I've had breakfast and lunch and I still have almost 1000 calories for dinner. Good thing too because I'm having dinner at my parents and they never make something healthy. It's not bad, it's just not that great for someone trying to lose weight, especially because they always make really good food so it's hard to have just a little lol. They almost never make veggies other than potatoes too, so tonight I am making a tomato basil soup, I got the recipe from SP. I hope it's good ^_^ Then with the potatoes and the fruit for dessert I'll have my 6 servings of fruits/veggies for the day.
Tomorrow I'm back in school and I'm prepared with lots of healthy food to make for lunches, and a new cookbook for healthy food to make in my slow cooker for dinner. I'll definitely post some of the good recipes on the Kicking Butt team forum.
I still can't believe I agreed to do a routine for the floor show at my dance studio. I think that's one of the reasons I'm doing so well now, there's a bit of a time limit on losing enough to fit into my dress. Oh, and I'm sorry, I'll prolly be mentioning it a lot in the weeks to come because I'm so nervous, possibly every day lol. I'll try to distract myself a bit, but not too much as it's working out to be good motivator for me ^_^
Anyway, hope everyone's having a good weekend!!!

Ok, yesterday I wrote all about how I said I was gonna do waltz routine at one of the next few parties. Well today mostly I'm wondering what I was thinking when I agreed to it. I don't know, but yesterday I was feeling super good about myself and super confident, which is unusual for me. So today I'm worrying about it.
This morning was good, because I did get my living room cleaned up and I moved my coffee out of the way and it's gonna stay out of the way. See, my living room is fairly small and I have a lot stuff in there so there's not much room to exercise or anything. I will be starting EA Active again, I haven't used it in months. I'm actually gonna go do a workout now while I'm thinking of my dress for the waltz. It's good motivation for me. I'm still gonna try to do the routine, I'm just kinda freakin out about the fct I agreed to it. I must have been insane yesterday.
Anyway, I did go over a bit with my eating today, but after lunch I went shopping and got all healthy stuff so I should be good this week. The Kicking Butt challenge is gonna be difficult for me. 6 servings of fruit and veggies every day, the exercise challenge was much easier lol. Eating healthy is much harder for me than exercising, especially now that I have so many fun things I do every week. I want to do well so badly right now, and all the time so I can fit into my dress quickly, normally I'm ok with going slow, but not right now, so I feel even worse about going over my calories today.
I ask for lots of help and support over the next few weeks because I want to be able to do this so badly. I want to fit into my dress again, and I want to feel great so I can do that routine. I'm going to make my nutrition tracker public so that when I eat I know you guys can really push me if I mess up, and I want you to ^_^ I'm starting fresh tomorrow with my eating.

I finished all my minutes today for the challenge. I got 345 done ^_^ and tomorrow I'm even gonna do some more. I'm gonna clear a space in my living room so I can start using my EA Active again. I did go a bit over for my calorie goal today but because I've done so well with the challenge I'm not too upset about it.
My last minutes were from my dance lesson today, I did 90 minutes. My instructor Marko, got me to agree to do a routine in the floorshow at the parties, just the next one. I'm gonna do the waltz and I even picked a song today. I don't know what it's called though cus he just played some songs for me and I picked the one I liked. I need to lose as much weight as possible in the next month or 2 so I can fit into my dress, which almost fits again, that I think would be perfect for the waltz. It's a long black gown that I think I look really good in, it makes me look thinner ^_^ I'm totally nervous and scared but a little excited too. I just hope I don't back out at the last minute.
I also lost a pound this week. It's been a little weird, the first week of the year didn't go so well for me. I was all depressed and negative and not doing so well, but now I think I'm finally building up some momentum. Hopefully I can keep it up ^_^
I had my last day at work today, and monday I sart back at school. I really hope my teachers don't go on strike, they vote on wednesday. It's for every college in Ontario. It would suck for a lot of people if they go on strike. I'm lucky because my parents can help me with money when I need it, but there are others who don't have that and I will feel really sorry for them if the college goes on strike.
When, and if, I do my routine I will try and get someone to record it on my camera so I can post the video. I don't know how good the video will be but I'll try. I'll let you know when the time comes because the next party is in 3 weeks and I said not the next one. so it'll either be 6 weeks or 9 since the parties are 3 weeks apart. It depends on how quickly I lose the weight. I fit into the dress it's just a bit too tight still for dancing. I just feel like I shouldn't wear pants, what I normally wear to the parties, for the waltz. I want to feel like I look good when I get up in front of everyone and dance.
Anyway, enough about dancing, again lol, have a nice weekend!!!
