It's official!!! NAMSMOMMY and I are the new leaders for the College Survival Team. We both are very excited for helping college students, just like us, lose weight and reach their fitness goals... but we need your help.
We need your help by a few ways depending where you fit in.
-If you are a college student, please come check out the team! If you decide to join, it would be awesome if you brought your active spark buddies too.
-If you not a college student but follow my blogs.. we need your help too! All I am asking is to spread the word! Tell EVERYONE about the new team for college student that they just gotta check out.
We really want this team to get this team active again. It has been neglected but now it has two awesome leaders. It can be done! So, tell every active Sparker that's a college student!
Here is the link to the team! Check it out!

I love days when I wake up so crabby that I cannot stand myself. Okay, this will take some explaining, lol. I was seriously crabby about my friend situation. I didn't even want to be with me. It's a bit hard to seperate me from me.
Today, I wasn't going to work out but I couldn't stand it anymore... so I did 35 minutes on the elliptical. I think because I needed to get it out of my system.. it was easy! Yup, you read that right. Elliptical was easy.. and I even got my heartbeat up to 173. Overall it stayed around 165. Usually that is not easy for me but it was today. Maybe I should thank my friend, lol!
On top of that, people kept saying how pretty I look today. All week people have been telling me I look amazing.. well.. I do. Hehe! So, that helped!
Than, I got an email saying I am now the team leader of this team that is kinda dead. So, now I have a new team called The College Survival Team. I changed the name. The name was a real downer. Anywho, if anyone has any ideas of how to breathe energy back into the team.. please let me know.. pronto. Haha! In fact, if you are a college student, please take a peek at the team. It might be just what you are looking for! Even if you are a college student, do you have friends on SP that go to college? Please past it on! Please?
Anyhow, I found I am in a better mood.. I guess I am gonna have to learn how to walk away from a two year friendship. Maybe it is time to move on with my life into my new phase of my life. Some friends are in your life for a reason, season or lifetime. Well, as sad as it is, I guess it is, this friend's time is coming to a close.
Oh geez... I almost forgot! I peeked at my weight today (tomorrow is offical weigh in day) and I am down to 187.2. Woo-hoo! And, today at breakfast, I was just under 500 calories. Score!
So.. sorry for the random blog.

And, I have plenty of will.
Okay, since I was still frustrated with the caf' situation, I talked with HEIDISO than looked over my calories the last few weeks. I found some hang ups. After some thought and consideration. I have a new plan I am going to try out next week. See if I can get that darn scale to move in the right direction. I am coming to terms that this will have to be a trail and error thing. Anyhow here is the plan!
- Monday-Friday eat breakfast and supper
- High protein, low calorie snacks between breakfast and supper such as fiber bars, string cheese and fruit. (Any other suggestions?)
- Try to eat more salads at the caf'
- Try to eat from the BORING health section more
Things with cheese
Also, I am joining the College Survival team.

Bummed. Yup, that is how I feel.
All week my weight hasn't moved - not up or down besides a few ounces here and there. I guess I am bummed because it's my TOM and I know that is why I gained 2# of water weight overnight. I've yet to lose it despite working out like a mad woman.
I feel I cannot blame it on 100% water retention. Since starting classes again, I have noticed I am drinking as much water as I should.
Also, I have been trying to eat at the caf' and it seems like everyday I am right at my upper limit or a little over. I want my value so I don't want to not use it yet I am frustrated. When I go, I eat right. I know I don't overeat. I get in. I get out. Most times I don't eat with people because I want it to be quick. No temptations. All last week I think I had one brownie otherwise fruit for dessert. This is hard when my friends, when I do eat with someone, are eating brownies or ice cream.. but I try.
Than, on top of that I want some "me" time and I don't know how to tell my friend that. I just want to be by myself this weekend. I know she misses and me all.. but I want space.
In the big picture of things, these things don't matter. I still have my family and friend. For anyone that is remembering a friend or family member, you are in my thoughts today!

Lately, I have been caught up in losing my friendship with this guy who I happen to like romantically as well. This morning I went to the bookstore, all crabby, and was buying myself a size MEDIUM sweatshirt. Yup, a MEDIUM! I noticed the guy behind me has a handful of heavy books. So, I moved to the side so he could put them down. One of the books was from a class I have.. so I commented on it. Me keep my mouth shut?! Ha! It turns out we do have class together. I didn't recognize him from my class but he knew where I sat. I am not sure if he was flirting.. but I am taking it at the value that he noticed me for positive reasons.
It always freaks me out when people notice me. I am not sure if they notice me because I have taken roles where I stand in front of people or my looks make me stand out. Okay, let's not get all egolistic. I am saying my short, near black hair, is very unique. I am not used to being noticed for positive reasons. In High School, it seems people knew me as the easy target to pick on.
This is not the only guy that have noticed me this week. I feel like I have caught guys.. cute, athletic guys.. looking at me. I am SO not used to that. Even if they are not "checking me out", I am still getting noticed. I guess that is one of the benefits that I enjoy the most. Maybe because I never got to enjoy in High School. Maybe I should I move on from my friend as it may not too late after all.
[On a side note I also was crabby because I woke up later than I wanted to. I ended up not working out when I wanted to but I plan on a swim today after class. It will be a nice mix up as I usually do the elliptical.]
