Work is pissing me off so much. Today definitely is MONDAY!

I am glad I had a nice weekend though. Friday we went to the chuch and listened to what music we can choose from for the wedding. I decorated 30 of the candle votive holders! Only 40 more to go next weekend. I would have done all of them, but I left the ribbon at the apartment and didn't get to bring it to my parents house until yesterday. oops!

First Bridesmaids meeting tonight! Hooray!


Craft Weekend!

Friday, September 30, 2011

I am staying at my parents house this weekend to watch their dog because they are going to the Poconos. I am bringing my pup with me. I don't know if I should walk with both dogs, or just mine. Mine is only 20 lbs and their pup is 85 lbs. Maybe I will just go on a shorter walk with them and then just walk by myself after.

We are picking our church music for the wedding tonight yay. Most of the weekend I am going to decorate my votive candle holders. Yay for projects! I am watching their dog next weekend too, so I will have more time to do more crafts woohooo.


Tuesday, Bluesday - Don't Smoke!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

My Dad has had a lot of problems the past couple years. He has been smoking since he was 12, and he is 63 now. We have tried to get him to quit for years, but he has been depressed and addicted his whole life. He is a Vietnam Veteran who didn't take the whole post-war life very well. He has good days and bad days. He is very bitter and stubborn sometimes.

Anyways, he had to get a pacemaker because he heart gave out. His lung capacity is only 20% (or something like that). and he still smokes. He has been rushed to the ER 4 times now because he randomly can't breathe. It breaks my heart that he is having so much trouble. He has good days, and then works on his cars, but then the next day he can barely move. Yet he still thinks he can do the work he used to. He *wants* to quit, but he just can't. Even though it has been killing him for years, he just can't do it.

All I can do is just know that I CAN do something now about my weight. I can move around, walk, run, breathe... I just try to be the best I can now. I am getting married in a year, and I really hope he will be there... I am trying not to be a downer, I am just a negative person sometimes. I see how much trouble he has on the bad days, and I want to do as much I can to help out. I try to make sure I am eating healthier now instead of just indulging on the bad foods. I know he is proud that I have lost weight in the past and that I am losing more weight now. I try to make him proud - he wishes he wasn't addicted, and always tells me to make sure I make the changes in my life NOW and not later because I will regret it.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dad's addiction. They say that cigarettes are harder to quit than hard drugs. You can't make him quit but maybe your commitment to a healthy lifestyle will inspire him to make some changes.

Feeling sore, but motivated!

Monday, September 26, 2011

I actually got up "early" today. Well, early compared to when I usually get up on a Monday morning! My legs are still sore from Saturday's workout, but I still want to walk tonight. I can't let my soreness keep me from sticking with this!

On a different note, my hair is finally getting to the length I am hoping for. I want it to be longer, but I am starting to be happy with it. I want it long enough so the hair trial I eventually get will be close to what it will actually look like!


Gym! Finally!

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I finally went to the gym yesterday with my roomie. I used the treadmill for 1.5 miles. He showed me the correct way to use some of the leg machines. I went for a job the night before even though it was raining. Well I did jog/walk/jog/walk, but it was nice. I charged the ipod, so I finally had music!
