If I were a crayon I would be:
Today, right now, I would be Fluorescent PINK. Bright, cheery, bold, feminine, strong, fun, inviting.
Yep, that's how I feel this morning.
I am so attracted to fluorescent colors. I guess this means that I am attracted to myself. Good.
When I woke up this morning at 5:30 am, because I am crazy and that's when I go workout even though I could workout a little later, I was probably a bit more like the color: Burnt Sienna. (Brownish red). Sluggish, yet tapping into the fire within. I always argue with myself about not "feeling" like walking this morning. "'Feeling' like it has NOTHING to do with 'doing' it! Shut up and get out of bed!" (see the spark there?)
I'm sure I will go through many color transformations throughout the day. Hopefully I can ebb and flow from BRIGHT pink to soft pink (all warm, squishy, approachable, loving). I have kids to care for.
Tonight I have my first info meeting for nursing school. What color is scared?
Okay, I WILL NOT be scared! I will be bold, bright, strong. School is going to be great. I will find the funds to actually go there, and to support myself and my daughter. I will be better for going through all of this!!!
I will be POWER RED!

The BMV sent the little renewal page for me to fill out to get new tags for my car. Oh, and informed me that I need to come in to get my picture took.
Yippee! *much sarcasm here
I am NOT the weight I want to be on my driver's license.
I have until Oct 8th to make it better.
I just wish the weather would cooperate.
I walked this morning, as I do most mornings, but when it is this icky out it feels like walking with lead weights on my feet.
I am kicking some hiney on my indoor exercising. Loads of strength stuff. My arms are getting much better looking. I have even been sporting sleeveless tops IN PUBLIC! (and getting compliments about how skinny I am getting). WOO HOO!
I think I'll do extra squats and bicep curls today. How about you?

Have you ever noticed how the way someone gains weight gain make them appear like the Sta-Puff marshmallow man or like a Jessica Rabbit?
That some people look "puffy" while others look voluptuous?
Some fat seems to sneak up on ya and never leave, while other fat helps to take away the wrinkles?
Why can't all fat be the Jessica Rabbit, voluptuous, wrinkle-free kind?
Why can't I donate my excess to some skinny, straight as a board person?
I like to share!
...But then again, I like ME!
Puffy, sometimes sexy, not too wrinkly (yet), squishy, getting stronger, getting more tone, showin' some resemblance of muscles, Me ME ME.
I am unique. And, so are you. It's nice to have soft spots here and there. It's also nice to be healthy.
I will still be a little bit envious of a nicely shaped woman, but I'm not too shabby myself!

I walked an extra .6 mile this morning. I would like to try to increase my walks to 3 miles (from 2). I'll have to see how my foot reacts to that.
I also want to step up my cardio game by finding something else I can do at home that won't hurt my foot too much but will increase my heart rate. Any ideas are welcome. I'm thinking the mini tramp or hula hooping. Perhaps doing some dancing...
I have 10 weeks til I turn 40. I could safely loose 20 pounds by then. I will not reach my goal of 140, but I will be very happy to reach 160.
This requires much better eating habits. Much better ways of dealing with emotions. Waaaaaaay better control on my weekends! And some serious attitude adjustment towards exercise. (This means: "the more I move-the better!" Rather than, "I'll do what I gotta do to be able to log something in")
I have called the nurse recruiter for the hospital where I am going to school. She isn't answering the phone and the voice mail says it's full. So now I will have to keep calling back until I get a hold of someone. But I am feeling very happy to have a connection to a possible job.
I have some great words of wisdom from a few friends about how to improve my resume, so now all I need to do is DO IT!
I promised myself I would still send applications out to some random jobs since I don;t know whether the recruiter will be able to help me or not. But, Please keep praying for some Supernatural intervention. (and for me to have a peace of mind about my future).

It's August first.
I do not have a job lined up.
I will be out of work Sept 1st.
I can not get unemployment.
Please pray for for Supernatural intervention.
***** This just in:
I just got some great ideas from a friend about how to improve my resume, so I am a bit more hopeful. She was very encouraging about what I had already written, but gave great suggestions on how to change it for the better.
I am hoping for a job at the hospital where I will be going to school, but many of the jobs require a certification that I do not have. Another friend gave me the number of the nurse recruiter at the hospital and told me to call her directly to see if she can help me in any way. YIPPEE!
