Grad today....

Friday, May 15, 2009

Today I will be graduating from Arizona Western College with a occupational degree in Microcomputer Business Applications....and I am not excited at all. My sister who lives 5 hours away wont come, my niece got really sick this wednesday and they aren't taking any chances, I totally understand. She had to be taken to the ER this week. My best friend is in Mexico City...yeah...not coming. My hubby will work tonight, he will attend the ceremony but will leave after its done to work (remember he is a drummer in a band and plays at a bar). But my parents are staying with me and of course my son.

You know...I'm really pissed off. My hubby was busy all week....well he seems to always be busy....for family stuff. Last week I had to go to a ceremony and they gave us this medal and certificates for graduating, he didn't go. I felt so upset..thank god I had my parents to come or I would have broken down. Hubby was working, he said he would make it and didn't. I was so mad because he didn't even say Congratulations or maybe a "i'm proud of you" nothing. I had to confront him about it. He told me he was proud of me...blah blah.

I am basically not celebrating my grad. How sad is that!

I am going back to college though...after attending last week's ceremony I was motivated to do what I've always wanted, have a business or be a professor at college level, major: business administration. So...monday I went to the college and registered for 2 summer classes, and 3 for fall. If everything goes well I will be finishing my associates in bus. administration in December of 2010, and then going to the university for my bachelors...and master's. I know I will be like 35 or something like that by the time I finish (im 24) but I don't care. I want to do this. For me.... I have a feeling that I need this. That my future cannot depend on hubby's job or education, no. I have always been independent, and somehow I've been letting that go, and I hate it.

So sorry...this is more a rant. Im off to decorating my own grad' cake. yeah... I even have to do that myself.

have a good weekend everyone...
lonely me,

    Awwe man!! My eyes actually got a little watery! I know how you feel. I'm not going to school or anything...but i've definitely felt like that before. And funny that you mention about being independent and not wanting to rely on your hubby, I was just like that....always very VERY independent....until 3 years ago, that I decided to stop working and be a stay at home mom. No regrets on being here for my kids, but I feel that i depend on my hubby, and "that" really know what? Without you realizing have opened my eyes...I have to start doing in something for myself!! Thanks! Oh...Darn it sorry for

TMI Blog! Sick today...

Monday, May 11, 2009

I always brag that I have the stomach of a homeless person, meaning I could eat anything, anywhere and I never get sick. When I went to Mexico City last year my friend was scared at first because she thought I might get sick, like alot of people do when going to a different country and trying new foods. Well, I ate like a pig....on the str eets.. lol and didn't get sick at all. She was surprised.

BUt now...I am sick. My stomach has been cramping and of course diarrhea I have no idea why though....It was like on and off since friday but last night and this's just say the only thing left for me to eat from the "BRAT" (banana rice appleasuce toast) diet is bananas. And since this morning I've had pepto twice. I've never had to go through in my life...and it sucks.

I had pizza wings and beer saturday night which seemed to upset my stomach...and yesterday I was really bad with my eating. I just hope I get better soon.

**Have you tried turbo jaM? I did saturday for the first time, I did a 30 min workout. It was so cool! I didn't have my HRM so I have no ideas how many calories I burned exactly.

Sorry I'm just blabbing here....I'm not feeling too good.

Lost one more lb!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

This blog is filled with mixed emotions. I got on the scale yesterday... 154... yes... 154. This is 16 lbs less then what I weighed when I found out I was pregnant over 3 years ago. I can't believe I am thinner than I was then. I am thrilled to be only 9 lbs away from my 145 lb goal weight. Is it really possible?......................... I didn't think so at first, now I am in shock, in shock because I am doing this. I am really reaching my goal.

I am also feeling a bit sad. Sad because I am more comfortable with my eating choices than ever. I am able to make wise decisions on my own, without having to log in and track every bite. I've lost 4 lbs on my own now, in this short period of time. It's sad because I don't feel the need to log in any more. I think that is really good, I mean that is what we all want right? But I feel sad because I feel I am distancing myself from all those great people that have helped me through this journey, my 3 spark teams. It hurts...but I know I am doing good right? Isn't this what we want? To be able to eat and live correctly on our own? Now I am not so sure, because I feel this hole I guess in my daily routine.

Sorry if I don't post much teams... I still love every one of you and I miss you spark friends. Please understand me. You are always in my mind, because without each other's support we would not be here.

I am starting once again my p90x routine. This will be my 2nd round. I am excited. My hubby is doing it too, but he's switching the cardio workouts for running, I'm sticking to the routine. I'm not a very good runner.

On a positive note... I met one of my 2009 goals...REGULAR PUSHUPS! I did my workout last night which has tons of push ups, different kinds, and I did at least the first 5 of each kind on my feet, not on my knees!!! My hubby was impressed. I was too. I couldn't believe it.

THank You teams!!!
I love you and miss you all!

Special Shout out to Ana & Jenn!!!!

    Congrats to you girl!!! I'm very proud of YOU!! You've come a long way and such a short way to goal...and you will be there in no time at all. =) Pushups...I'm soo jealous! ;-) LOL Its not abuot distancing yourself...I think its more about understanding yourself. You now know what your body needs for fuel and how much! Its become a habit!!! So thats good! Take care and congrats to you...let us know when you reach goal.

    Congrats Marcia!

Don't feel bad about not logging in... this is your journey, and the whole purpose is to learn how to go it alone!! I'm so happy for you! Don't be a stranger though...

Close to a month's worth update!

Monday, April 27, 2009

As many of you know I have been very busy lately. Here is a recap of things. First of all, I have not been very good with my exercise...actually not good at all. I think I have missed 2 complete weeks...and then the 3rd week I only worked out once. Foodwise: okay. I guess since I wasn't really working out, I really tried to portion control and make the best examples possible... RESULTS: 3 lbs lots. yup. I lost 3 lbs. That makes the official number to : 30 LBS LOST!

I made 2 of my friend's wedding cakes, on the 18th and on the 25th. FOr the 18th of April wedding, my best friend from Mexico city flew down was crazy day...We had ag reat time and when I was enjoying a piece of cake at the reception... I realized... I hadn't taken a picture yet...turned around to lookat the cake...and of was too late! But I hope I can get one from the bride.

We celebrated my hubby's birthday on the 19th, and I made a coconut cake for him... delicious.I had lots of trouble with the lady that was making my bridesmaid dress for the 25th wedding... So I had to take it from her and take it to another lady...she had to finish it in a week! But she made the deadline, so she got a tip! ;)

Here pics of the events:
My friend Paulette's wedding
Hubby's bday
My comadre's wedding

My son pulled the bride's train! He was wearing a tie and jacket of course but he took it off as soon as we got to the reception... That is my god daughter Natalia, bride's & groom's daughter.
