Today is the start of February. I know. Not the biggest shock.
In 14 days, it WILL be Valentine's Day.
Some will be down for no other reason than they do not have an significant other. My boyfriend and I recently broke up and I REFUSE to be sad on that day... not that I am really "sad" that we broke up. It was mutual, bhah, bhah, bhah!
Anywho, I have decided to be my own Valentine.
When we celebrate Velentine's Day, we are supposed to celebrate that love for that other person. Well, I am going to celebrate loving ME with ALL my flaws!
Every time I look at my flowers (the ones I am going to get me), I will know I appreciate me and I am amazing! What a great reminder for that week!
Who's with me? Who's gonna celebrate loving themselves on Valentine's Day?

What a week!
Here are the bulletin points!
• Started classes on Monday.
• Laptop died on Monday.
• Phone was turned back on Tuesday.
• Still sick with a cold/horrid cough.
• Went to the doctor and got antibodies.
• Failed a quiz... oops. But, I don't think it counts toward my grade.
• Got another mass email from work about how we spend our time during our shift
• Finally got SOME books on Thursday
• Someone that sexual harrassed me in the past, did something else
• My BF and I broke up on Saturday before work. (Please no condolences. It was mutual.)
• Bought my very first Mac last night!
• Ran for 10-15 minutes solid - first time in like a week and half - Woohoo!
Weeks like this, I realize stress is all relative.
Any of these things could seriously stressed me out but like I was used to it. In fact, my depression is triggered by stress. More and more, I have noticed that it is triggered when it is not elleviated. Like in cases of personal stress in where I do not let it go or when I am overwhelmed with my schedule. When the last one happens, I tend to shut down and don't do anything.
Now, onto the next week...
• I get my scale back from Nick on Tuesday - it's the first of the month and get to weigh in after no weigh ins from MY scale!
• 1 1/2 hour private session learning kettlebells with a PT
• Running with a friend
• Test in A&P sometime - not sure when
• Quiz on Friday - hopefully I can do better
• Visiting my family for the weekend, maybe.
Okay, I think I am ready for this week more than I was last week... but, I said that last week, too!
Have a good one!

What I decided to do about my sabbitical is to not take one. Basically, I unsubscribed to my automatic emails and am having people take over my leadership positions. I hope I can still keep up with my friends and their blogs. I really enjoy this blog business... writing and reading.
In other news, I think I already know my February goals.
Run 3x/week - Focus on HM training
Kettlebells 4x/month - Focus on toning rather weight loss
Oh by the well, I am finding that on Mondays and Wednesday I am climbing a flight of stairs (up and down) about five times a day. Lately, I have been feeling it in my calfs and butt!
Hope all is well!

Lately, I have been giving thought about committing to Sparkpeople less. Now, before I go any further, I LOVE Sparkpeople.
I do not want to leave. (I know no one is kicking me out.) But, it takes alot of my time up. I am very active on the boards including my two teams that I am a leader of. I feel like I made friends here and I am on here more for support than losing weight.
I don't really log my food or my exercise anymore. Mind you, I did not go back to my old habits. I still follow but I have been counting calories for the last two years, I kinda know if I am in range or not. The only time I track my fitness is when I am in competition with a sparkfriend for more minutes.
With that said, I will be working 30 hours a week, full-time college, playing intramurals and training for a Half Marathon. To say the least, I have a full plate.
This is where I turn to you all for advice.
What should I do? Go on a Sparkpeople sabbatical and stay kinda invisible?

I am totally stressed... and it is only the first day of classes.
It started last week, Thursday, when I found out my phone was shut off due to not paying my bill. Yup, I am not perfect. Basically, I was going to pay it to current as soon as I got my refund from financial aid.
I was getting my refund than I figured out that they were sending it to my old account from when my wallet got stolen. I called the bank, on the work phone (remember I have no phone), and they are supposed to bounce it to my new account. I have yet to see it.
I babysit two boys, ages 5 and 7. It was fine. Kinda relaxing to get away from everything. I got paid in check form so it won't be applied to my bank account until tomorrow or Wednesday. So, this means I still won't have a phone.
This morning I tried to turn on my laptop. Nothing. I just got back from bringing it in, for the four time in like the last couple years, and they will probably deem it as a lemon. This means I will get money for my new computer which I will put towards a new mac. If you have a mac, do you like it? Any issues between macs and PCs?
I went with my BF, who is going for network specialist, and vented a bit about my frustration. I made the mistake of saying I don't trust PCs because they suck. He said it's because I buy crappy computers.
Okay. Let's stop right there. I am not stupid about computers. I did go for Visual Communications Technology which is graphic design and web design. Anywho, I am not too happy.
THAN... if this isn't enough, today I dealt with...
-Not being able to buy textbooks because I don't have my refund yet.
-Being neauseus from being so stressed out
-Class from 8-12, 1-2
-Work from 3-7
a. Tired of friend leaning on his health issues (long story)
b. A friend's friend being cocky about a hard class. He thinks it will be "easy".
c. Just tired.
Anyhow, I needed to get it out with someone that is supportive. Whenever I said to my BF I had a long day, he's like I am there with ya. Yes, you had a 10 hour day... but no, I kinda just wanted to someone to listen to me.
So, here I am.
And, even though I want to binge on the chocolates I got, I know I won't. It won't make things better. If anything, worse.
Tomorrow, I have badminton, , another class, counselor, than work from 3-10! Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
