I decided to reward myself today. Even though I don't physically have my reward yet, but it has been ordered!!
I had 2 books from an accounting class I took about 3 semesters ago laying around in my room. I was going to trash them since they don't use that edition at my college bookstore anymore so they wouldn't take them. So I found this website (there are several outhere), that you can sell back your books. They tell you how much they'll send you and you get this pre paid postage thing to send in your books. So I only had to buy an envelope for like $2 and I sent them in. That was last week, today I got $36.47 deposited into my paypal account for the books!! Y E A H!!!
So I thought to myself...what could I buy with $36.47??!?!?! Then it hit me! I need new make up! I used to wear Bare Minerals make (love it the best) and I ran out so I bought Mary Kay from my friend who sells it. I like it. But I LOVE Bare Minerals. Since I'm almost running out of the Mary Kay, well I ordered myself new make from ebay, for a total of $36.30 .
I have to say sorry to my friend, but I haven't found something better than Bare Minerals so no more Mary Kay for me! I'm so excited! And with these hot hot summer days, having a make up that you can't feel like you have a mask on is wonderful.
Just wanted to share my excitement. I can't wait. I'll check the mail every day next week!
**OH! I almost forgot. I started all over with my SP weight loss goal. So it readjusted my calories and stuff to lose those last few lbs. They were 10 lbs before now, they are 14 (gained a few). And the reward is for me losing 1 lbs lol. I lost 1 lb! I weighed myself today I am so happy! I can't believe I am in the losing zone again!
It's hard now, because it seems I'm losing inches instead of weight, which is good I guess. I have a pair of capri jeans I bought like a month ago and they are lose on me today!!!! Wow... I'm so happy! See...those cookies I attacked the other day weren't taht bad.... lol

I've lost you! Okay, so I am looking at my commentsand I was responding to them, and somehow deleted one of them. I can't remember your user name. But you mentioned baking zuchinni bread and muffins!
Please if you are out there please respond. I wont be an idiot trying to manage 6 screens at a time and delete your comment again. I was going to ask your for your zuchinni bread recipe! lol (for my parents I swear...ok ok... I was going to try it just a bit THEN, all to my parents.)
Hope you are out there and see this!!!

I was this close to making a video blog....yeah...I didn't know what to say, maybe some other time lol.
Anyway, today was the last day to do my online course final, and like the good procrastinator that I am, I just finished it, 30 mins. before it was due! :D Hey! At least I did do it!
Today was a very chill Sunday. One good exciting thing that happened was, I made my own pizza!!! Yup, scratch crust, scratch sauce! It was a whole wheat pizza thin crust topped with lots and lots of veggies, turkey bacon and cheese (part skim mozzarella). I am so proud! I've never made pizza dough before, I actually haven't work that much with yeast before and it came out so good! Me and hubby were so impressed lol. I also made my own chicken wings...yeah I know, not that good but they weren't fried!!! They were baked and it was like my cheat meal. ANyway....the pizza is delicious! LOVE IT!
The batch made enough for 2 crust so I froze the other one. I'll probably make it on friday with a nice big salad this time no wings!
Friday night was a lot of fun. Me, my 2 sister in laws, and mother in law went out. We went to a casino that has a rock band playing, it was fun. Then we went to the bar where my hubby was playing and we danced and danced the night away. I did drink quite a bit but I danced alot so I guess I made up for the calories, plus I did Zumba that day.
Anyway... my mother in law and hubby commented on how good I was getting at my dancing lol. So, starting next week every Tuesday and Thursday I'll be going to my MIL's house and workout to Zumba with them for an hour! They have recruited me as their instructor! I'll let you guys know how that goes!
So it's late, and I have to go to bed. My hubby starts to work tomorrow (he's a teacher, school starts tomorrow here). And my son will be going to daycare again starting tomorrow so I'm trying to put him to bed.
Here is the pizza!! Delicious! (half cheese for my son!)

So I've been trying to make a habit of taking vitamins. I am really bad at remembering to take pills, that is why I don't take birth control pills, but that is a whole different story!
I am taking Equate Women's One Daily (walmart brand). And every time I take them, my stomach starts feeling all queezy. Today I had ceral for breakfast, and like 2 hours later an apple. Right after the apple I took my vitamin. My stomach started hurting, then I knew...I had to throw up.
I ran to the office bathroom right on time to throw up all my delicious apple! (TMI sorry).
Does this happen to anyone else?
Is it the brand of vitamin?
Do I need to have a full stomach to take it?
