Today, I am having a "bhah" day.. I hope by blogging about it, it will make me feel better.
First, I am anxious and have tons of energy (and not in the good way). To deal with this, I usually walk it out. I did take a 2 mile walk on the way to work which seemed to work.. but now I am irritated again. Everyone here is talking.. mind you, we tutor, and they are talking about their personal life.. and it is really bugging me. *sigh* I just want them to be quiet! I can hear them clearly across the room!
I am trying to debate when to go for another walk today... because I definitely have to. If I don't, I will be even more anxious, irritated and stressed. Not good.
So, I could ...
1. go for a 3 mile walk near campus after work than cook supper
2. go for a walk off and away from campus and cook for supper afterwards.
The downside of the last one is I might not have time to cook supper after 4 mile walk and I would be stuck with what I ate for lunch.
Why the debate? I get off work at 2 and work at my other job at 5 which leaves 3 hours for a walk and making supper. The 4 mile walk takes about a hour and half.. *sigh*
Besides all this, we are having a tornado drill in which I will be stuck in the crowded basement with tons of people.. and these people will want to small talk. When I feel anxious and irritated, I don't want to do small talk, I want to be left alone. Grr..
Okay, enough complaining.
On the positive side, I did strength training today (the last time I did it was April 3rd)! I am going to try to do it 3x during this ten day period.
I hope everyone is having a better Thursday than me!

Today was the day. To weigh in. After TEN days of not weighing in. This was my first weigh in for my 100 Day Challenge. I was nervous but antsy. I was so antsy that this morning, I was thinking, "Oh, I get to weigh myself today." as I laid in bed. It is nice to know.
(Drum roll, please.)
I lost FOUR pounds.. Wa-hoo! I really wanted to weigh under 210 today.. and I did! Officially, I weight 209.6. YAY!
When I set up my 100 Day Challenge, I made a weight goal of 2-3# a week and I think those goals were set perfect for me. I would rather set it too low than too high.. than be let down. This first week, I reached my goal!!!
Anyhow, I am pretty excited.. I am also wearing my new $5.97 shirt that I got at Old Navy... and I feel beautiful, too!
Today, I think I am going to go for a today... after work. I don't have anything to do from 1 pm.. so I think I am going to go to the boardwalk. I am not sure with how far.. maybe do a 6 mile walk? I know I am going for a 3 or 4 mile walk at least!
Have a day!

Today, I was really crabby..especially at the end. I am not going to spread the crabbiness to you.. but let's just say it has some to do with the dang laptop. Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I tried on a friend's new swimsuit and it FIT! I did not think it was going to but it DID! I may change my rewards for the 100 day challenge for only weighing in every ten days to the swimsuit to be first rather than a new bra. I really want to go swimsuit shopping now. Seriously, it was so slimming.. it was great!
Tomorrow is a new day, thank goodness! :-)

This morning I SPRUNG out of bed at 8 am. Now that is just amazing all by itself, haha! I sprung out of bed because I wanted to make sure to get a in before working at noon. I was all excited until I saw it was foggy. . I was kinda disappointed since the forcast that it was supposed to be beautiful! I went to the Rose Garden/Boardwalk in Duluth, Minnesota. It still beautiful with no . I was able to watch Lake Superior shore which was really relaxing. After work, it seemed to have warmed up and it was . So, I decided to go for another but on the Wisconsin side. Towards the end, I decided to Later, I tracked it and it ends up I ran a solid half mile at the same speed. I did not plan doing this but it was nevertheless.. I haven't ran for that kind of distance probably since Febraury. It was so today! I am really proud of myself that I walked a total of 7 miles today and ran .5 mile of it!!!! Also, I get my laptop back tonight.. I guess they say nothing is wrong with it. Whatever.. I'll deal with the fading in and out.
All in all, I would deem today:
A GREAT Day!
