So, I'm newly (and unexpectedly) single and it's time for a priority shift. I put all of me into my relationships so I think now I need to take this chance to put a lot into ME. It's not a messy situation, the usual, it's not you it's me, this is hard for me too, etc but I think it ended well. Still sucks a ton though because we have been together for a while. So, not sure what this is going to lead to and I not sure where to start moving forward again but I think throwing myself into some self improvement might be a decent start. Here's hoping....

Been busy here! Super busy! Life is crazy I'm I'm trying my best to hold on. Next week is my spring break and I'm working most of it but on Thursday and Friday I'm going down to the Illinois School For The Deaf and volunteering! Of course! I end up doing school related things over my Spring Break! This semester I have to complete 80 hours of internship to graduate so all the time I spend at ISD I can count towards that and since my classmate and I are staying the night there in the dorms that means a LOT of hours! Today we went down to get all of the necessary stuff done, background check, drug test, meet the people I'll be working with, tour, etc. It was all very interesting and exciting!!!
On the weight loss front, I seem stuck. I just can't seem to get out of this three lb rut! I even considerably stepped up my work out amount and no change. Ugh! Oh well, these things take time I guess.
Well now for something more fun. I totally stole this from one of my Spark Friends blogs...

Here's the deal, I HATE working out at home! I just can't find the motivation! I feel like it would be much easier to work out regularly if I had a gym membership but sadly I can't afford that right now on my I'm-A-Poor-College-Student-Supporting-Hers
y-Family-Owned-Restaurant Budget. So I'm pretty much limited to working out around the house and outside. I really enjoy outside but right now it's not the best option because it's so cold. Actually, it's not really the cold that bothers me but my street and all the streets around me are NEVER plowed so it's still covered in snow and ice which makes running difficult. I've seen some results with my weight loss but I really wish I could step up the process with more exercise but I get so bored so fast! Ugh! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
Love and Hugs,

So the big V-Day has passed and with it came a weekend away with my dearest friends....and a LOT of food. I ate plenty too. LUCKILY, the girl hosting us and a few more of my friends are strict vegetarians so there was a ton of fresh fruit, vegetarian chili, and other not so bad for you stuff so the calorie intake could have been much worse. Still, self control wasn't exactly the word of the day. Oh well.
Worse than that though is with Valentine's Day came well-meaning gifts of candy! Wonderful gifts but a dieter's nightmare! Allow me to set the scene, I am currently sitting up in my bed while typing this. To my left is a heart-shaped box of chocolates (Russell Stover!), multiple old fashioned fruit flavored candy sticks, two chocolate bars and a Fun Dip from the SO, (Thanks, Honey!) to the right of me is another heart-shaped chocolates box (Hershey's Pot O'Gold Assortment) from my dad, and a whole bag of Hershey's Bliss smooth and creamy milk chocolate from my mom. Ahhh Temptation! How am I to deal with it all? I'm a total Chocoholic! Yeesh! I really need to get this stuff out of my bedroom.... Plus, I got a bunch of fun cookie cutters from my mom and the SO over Christmas and Valentine's. Now all I want to do is use them and make cookies!
On another completely random note, I was walking through school today and there where posters hanging everywhere about it being Random Acts Of Kindness Week. Now, it's a bit sad that as a society we need to advertise a week set aside to be kind to one another but I really liked the quote they had on it.
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle" -Plato
Good words to remember! So go out and do a good deed today, and tomorrow, and the next day and remember we are all in this together!
Love, Hugs and Kindness! (and maybe a LITTLE chocolate!)
