I, Roxy, promise to be an active team member and to support my friends in their journey to a healthier, happier life; to give what help and advice I can; to set an example by following my own advice; to work my hardest and ask for help when I need it, which will be a lot ^_^ ; to be honest when I make a mistake and to try not being so hard on myself and to be proud of that which I accomplish. I will make myself a better person this year in as many ways as possible.

It's been a little while since I blogged. A few things have happened. I went up to my parents new cottage last weekend and had a blast. We went boating and fishing and all kinds of fun stuff. Unfortunately the water was still a bit too cold for swimming until the last day when I didn't have time. I won't be able to go up again for a few weeks because I have a class on Saturdays. It is so beautiful up there, my parents really lucked out, they have a large property, a nice 3 bedroom cottage with a big kitchen and bathroom, a large wrap around deck, a large dock, and it's all on a really nice lake. It isn't too big so it warms up fairly quickly and it's all cottages, no campgrounds or anything on the lake, so it's not busy, it's nice and quiet. There's no internet or even cell reception or anything because it's all surrounded by hills so starting in July I won't be on spark on the weekends lol.
I started my online nutrition course, it's my general elective for school, and on my first assignment I got 90% when the average was 63% lol. It is a very basic course though so I expect to know most of the material already, I do hope I learn some new things though ^_^
I met someone online and we've been chatting. He wants to meet in person, and he seems like a nice guy, but he seems a little clingy. We've only been chatting for a week and he's already talking about wanting to get together and cuddle while watching a movie. We started talking on Monday or Tuesday of last week, and I was busy on Saturday and Sunday so I didn't talk much to him. Sunday afternoon , around 4ish, he sends me a message saying he's sad because he thinks I don't want to meet him, well now I don't think I do. We haven't even met yet and he's already starting to act like we're dating, and he's texts me about 20 times a day. I'm beginning to worry I might have to change my phone # because it just seems like he may be stalker material. Hopefully not though.
I haven't been doing so well with my eating in the hot weather. I keep wanting ice cream and stuff. I also was rushed with breakfast and didn't make a very good choice, my lunch however is much better and I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do for dinner. I'm going to decide before I leave for home so I don't go through the drive-thru again. I will be making some plans for this week tonight, so that tomorrow when I go shopping, I can buy all good things that will hopefully keep me on track this week. Any suggestions for healthy snacks to keep on hand would be good. Especially stuff that is good on the go.
I have revised my goal. I'd been hoping to lose 100 lbs this year but of course that isn't going to work now as I haven't lost any. I have reset my goal at 50 lbs by the end of the year. That's 10 lbs per month with room several not so good weeks. I still have my goals in mind, new dance shoes at 10 lbs, and a new digital camera at 30 lbs. I haven't decided on a reward for 50 yet.
Also, I have made a discovery, a few weeks ago I was having a real problem with chest pain especially when breathing heavy from exercise. So I did an experiment, cus I know my doctor would just say take it easy you probably strained something. So for a couple weeks, I was taking allergy meds and I took a couple weeks off martial arts and slowed down the dancing, well it worked, no more pain. So I took another week off exercise and stopped taking the allergy meds, I've started feeling the pain again. I am going to make an appoitnment sometime this week or next and tell him what I did. He'll probably send to me for allergy testing and stuff then, because right now only Benadryl works for me and I can't be always taking that, it makes me tired. So I am hoping for something that will help, some other kind of allegry meds, cus reactine, claritin, aerius and every other OTC non-drowsy meds that I have tried aren't helping me. I've spent a rediculous amount of money this year trying to find something that works.
Sorry for going on for so long lol. I've had an eventful few weeks. And certainly busy with work and school.
Hope everyone in the US had a good Memorial Day weekend!

Im so not having a good day. First off, my neck hurts, has been for some time but its quite bad today. This morning I started one of my summer classes and it went ok except it was kinda long and I was in pain. I was getting a headache by the end from my neck. I went to the grocery store, where I work, to pick up some advil and a few things and to check my work schedule. I had applied for a leave of absence for the summer because Im working a full time co-op and i have 3 classes to pick up before i go back in the fall. They said no because I only work one shift a week, i figured ok, itll be easy to replace me and its for school so theyd say yes. No, I was so wrong, so the manager and i agreed that i would work one shift every 3 weeks, which is ok but Im in pain today so Im a little peeved anyway. Ive decided im going to get a massage for my neck. Normally, I wouldnt even consider it because of my insecurity and the whole touching me thing, but right now it hurts enough that Ill do anything. Unfortunately, i cant find a place open today that has any appointments still open. So Im gonna have to wait, then also next week Im going to see my doctor because my allergies are driving me nuts and none of the over the counter meds I usually take are working for me this year. A couple years ago I had to stop taking reactine because it stopped working, now the other one i was taking isnt working anymore. Benadryl is the only one that works and it makes me tired so i cant be always taking it.
Ok, sorry, that was my rant. I just needed to vent a little today. Hopefully, my day will be better now, and hoepfully your all having a great weekend!

I am having a rough day. Not in terms of stuff happening though, I just feel crappy. One of those depressing days where you dont want to do anything, can't muster up the energy to exercise or cook and so end up eating fast food or delivery. I'm really fighting the urge to leave work and go home. I'm having trouble dealing with people right now. So overall, I'm not doing well today.
I don't know what I'm going to do to keep myself on track today. I haven't been doing well lately either. I haven't lost any weight since February! I've been staying pretty much the same though so it could be worse.
I can't even get myself excited about my birthday next week. I'm hoping this is just going to be a one day funk. I'd really appreciate any tips to get motivated though, or ways to just keep myself away from the drive thru.
Hope everyone is having a better day than me!

ok, I have an interesting story about work today lol. I'm a cashier at a grocery store on weekends and today is Mother's Day so everyone was buying lobster. Mostly live lobster too, I only like it AFTER it's cooked. Now I've never bought live lobster so I didn't know if they killed it before giving it to you or if they gave it to you still alive. I made the mistake of asking one of my customers this lol. He opened up the box and took one out, practically shoved it in my face and said "see? still alive and wriggling" Oh so gross. He was trying to get me touch it right, to prove it was still alive, and i said no thanks I don't want to smell like seafood for the rest of my shift right. Well, then he puts it away and shoves his hand toward me and says smell my hand it doesn't smell like seafood. A couple of the other girls working there saw this happen and they were saying if anyone had done that to them they'd have run screaming lol. It was pretty weird though, and I'm ok with seeing, just not touching until it's cooked lol.
I tested for my green stripe yesterday too, I have an orange belt in hapkido, now with a green stripe. That means I'm halfway to green for anyone who doesn't know. I'm still sore from that test lol. We started with our physical requirements of course, which mean in the first 30 - 45 mins I did 100 jumping jacks, 100 crunches, 50 burpie pushups, 25 normal pushups and attempted 15 back of the hand pushups and 10 fingertip pushups, couldn't do all of those last 2 but I did some then just finished with more normal pushups. also, i can't do any on the back of my hand, but most of them can't, so he accepts on the knuckles. then we got into punches and kicks and falling. Then we did patterns, I had to do 3, each one 4 times. Which was easier because since it's a midterm not a full belt I didn't have to do everything from white, just yellow and then my stuff now. Then we got into techniques, and again I didn't have to do everything, then we were finally done. We were there for 4 hours and 2 people were testing for a full belt, well black stripe which is considered a full belt. They had to do everything, they were up for the full 4 hours. i was up for about 1 1/2, but next test will be at least 2 because it'll be for full green. Mainly my legs are sore, but my one knee I hurt on friday practicing, then yesterday i hurt my elbow, from one of the joint locks I think.
I'm going dancing again tonight, but I won't be doing any of the faster dances, and I'll be sitting down mostly I think, unless the dancing can loosen up my muscles enough. At least in class tomorrow we're doing some easy stuff, some breathing exercises. They're supposed to be good for relaxing and lowering blood pressure ^_^ We did them once before, a long time ago, and I think it'll be nice to do them again.
I'm not doing anything for mother's day because my parents have gone to their new cottage and they wont be home early enough. I'm excited, I'll finally get to see their new cottage on the long weekend, and we'll be having dinner for my birthday up there. It's actually the wednesday before, the 19th, but we always do my birthday stuff on the long weekend. I won't be getting much in the way of presents because my parents recently had to replace my laptop for school, my last one crashed and it wasn't worth it to get it fixed. I'm fine with that though ^_^ my new computer is enough of a present, and of course spending time with my family.
Anyway, I need to get ready to leave for dancing. Hope everyone had a nice weekend, and happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!
