Today was the start of summer classes. And, with that, apparently I was ready for a clean slate in many aspects of my life.
My dorm room has been driving me crazy so I changed it around. I love the new feel of it.
Than, I got a new phone and provider. After being with Verizon since 2005, I switched to ATT today. I really hope this was the right thing to do. Since AllTel and Verizon merged, I haven't been happy with the service. Today was the last straw with the company. I have until the 9th when my billing cycle ends to decide.
I switched to Verizon Wireless back in 2005 because of their well known customer service. Now, I keep hearing horror stories about ATT's customer service. What if I have a horror story like those people?
Do you have ATT? Do you like it? Pros? Cons?
With getting a new number, something I haven't done since 2005, it felt like making a clean slate when I was going through my telephone book, trying to decide who to text to inform that I got a new number. It was actually nice.
The only person I am still on the fence is the guy that my sister set me up. I want to give it to him. I want something to happen. But, he thinks I am too pretty. I guess I kinda hope that in the future we could have something potential. He sounds like a great guy but he's not giving him or me a chance. The other guys that I have gone on dates in the last six months.. well.. good riddance, lol.
So, have you had ATT? Would you pass my number to this guy or just let it go?

On Saturday, I got a sports massage to help get rid of this soreness in my entire body - back, neck, hips, knees, feet. She WAS amazing. So much so that I brought new running shoes. I went running in them on Sunday and felt soreness in the hips and the feet. The problem with this is I do not know if the foot issues is from the shoes or my before issues. Either way, it confirmed my decision to not do Grandma's Marathon this week. On the other hand, I am thinking I might be going to the chiropractor since it's all on one side of my body.
Just wanted to give you guys the update... Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

When I started this journey, one of the tips I found on Sparkpeople was to share your goals. The idea of sharing your goals is that it keeps you accountable.
Recently, I have found sharing goals can be inspiring.
In April, I told my friend about how I struggle with strength training and how I put a smile-y sticker on my calendar. As long as I get three stickers each week, I was going to reward myself with a sport massage. (Next week, I hope to get this massage I earned!) Apparently, I inspired her to strength train as well, something she does not like to do either. She even is putting on stickers, too. This was pretty cool as she is super fit.
Fast forward a few weeks later and now it seems like we have similar goals. We are going to do intervals or hills every week. This happened because again I told her about the goals and now we are working on it together.
But, don't believe I am not affected by other people's goals for one second. My sister shared her goal to lose 25 pounds this summer. It has inspired me to start up my weight loss again. You know, even this skydiving thing has popped up again because my friend posted on Facebook that he's going skydiving. It got me thinking about how I want to go skydiving and the reason why.
Another instance of this never ending change of inspiration. My friend follows blogs and was telling me about runforcookies blog who is also a sparker. So naturally I check it out myself. This woman looks familiar. I do some more digging and I find out she is on a Ragnar Relay with John. You know John of course. Than, I tell my friend all this and now we both want to do the Ragnar Relay. And, now one of these days I am going to show my friend who is a committed runner Sparkpeople!
So, the moral of the story is to share your goals and inspirations because you never know who YOU, yes, YOU, will inspire! Like us Sparkers says, it only takes a spark to create a fire. Let's start this fire... share your goals with someone!
(By the way, I THREE times this week!)

On July 17th, I will have maintained my 100 pound weight loss for one year to be exact. Last summer, I said I wanted to go skydiving but never did. In a few days, I will have a school refund but I am thinking of setting aside some money and doing it on July 17th. Skydiving is crazy enough but I am terrified of falling. So terrified I don't like being up high on anything.. ladders, roofs, weight benches. Even the other students in my Track and Field could see I was terrified of falling.
This is crazy...

It is no secret I have been under alot of stress in the last week physically and emotionally. During this week, my weight jumped up to 166.8. Since than I have been consciously trying to get my weight back down. Yesterday, I got it down to 165.6 than this morning 163.something. I know I did not lose three pounds in two days. Between all the salt I was eating and the stress I was experiencing, apparently I was holding onto some weight. So glad I am back down to 163-ish. My goal for the summer is to get between 140 and 150 by Labor Day weekend. That is 13 pounds or 1 pound a week! I can do it!!!
Also, my grades have been coming in. Right now, my GPA is 2.81. That is .2 away from a 3.0 GPA. Do you know what this means?!!! If I can manage a 3.0, I could get into graduate school in the future. This is doable, I feel! For me, this is huge. One upon a time, when my life was a mess and was not managing depression well at all, my GPA was under 2.0. So excited!!!!
Okay, moving on from that WooHoo party, my clients keep canceling on me. I sure hope it's not me. Today my client is sick with a fever. Yes, please, stay home. But, this means I will have time to go when the pool is open today!
