Thank you everyone for your kind and thoughtful words to my last blog. It really helped. He was trying to be helpful but still, it was unwanted advice. In the future, I will be trying to avoid that member at the Y.
I have been trying to carve some time out to respond to everyone's comment but in the mean time, I have had some fun updates. Let's dive right in!
It has been a couple weeks since my phone interview with the internship in SC. With that said, I was assuming I did not get it and was waiting to get the official rejection. This week, the day I stepped on a bee, I got the email. It's actually a relief to have an official answer. While waiting, I have applied to the Mayo Clinic, Apple Wellness and North Dakota State University.
In addition to that, I have been offered the internship at the Y. I really want to take it for many reasons. It could give me experience in grant writing, recruiting and supervising staff. I cannot see this opportunity provided to many interns.
Also, I have found since working a the Y, I have become part of the town's community. I love going somewhere and running into people I know. And, these are people that know ME, not my parents or grandparents.
There is another reason I want to stay. A boy. Hee, hee! I recently contacted a boy that I thought was interested in me that used to live just down the hall from me. And, now we have been texting ever since. I really like him!
Another update is that I am officially done with one of my summer classes. I was taking lifeguarding for the last two weeks from 8:30-12:00 everyday. It really sucked the time out of my day! Now I can focus on my other classes!
Now for my last update is that I have decided to volunteer at Grandma's Marathon even through I am not running it! I am actually super excited to give back some support and encouragement while seeing the other side of the race! My friend and I are actually going to go to the expo on Thursday after supper. So, I will get to learn the ropes somewhat before I run the race which I hope to run next year... just the half marathon though.
I think that is all I have for now. Time to jump in the shower and get to step aerobics I am teaching, one of like four group exercise classes I am teaching!
Have a great weekend!

Sometimes us girls need to wear something underneathe to make US feel good about US. Some of my undergarments, especially the ones I wear during the TOM, make me feel not good about my appearance. So, today I went to mall as I had to do a few other things today. I stopped at Aerie. That may be my new favorite store. The staff were very nice, made me feel comfortable and not silly that I might not know my size. I have gotten looks before when I need help with sizing. Yes, I have lost alot of weight and yes, I do not know what I should be wearing and yes, that was why I was hoping you could help me. Anyways, besides the amazing staff (did you know they even have certain areas of the store that they cannot be?), all the garments I found were cotton. What's the big deal? Well, it means if I move suddenly, my undies will NOT be rolling underneath my roll. Now, if you ever have had a roll, now or before, you know exactly what I am talking about! So, now I am sitting in my new garments feeling sexy with no one to impress but ME.

Today was the start of Operation Summer. Operation Summer is where my sister and I are trying, scratch that, going to lose 25 pounds. We talked about our game plan over Memorial Day weekend. Ours differ just a tad but that's okay. Mine was to track everything, strength train 2-3 times a week and do a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio. Basically, that is what I did the first summer I started this journey and I feel it's the recipe for weight loss.
Anyways, I tracked today. It always goes great until 9 pm comes along. At this point, I am typically hungry but is in range. I have a choice. Either I can eat and not lose weight. Or I cannot eat and lose weight. This is the choice I have.
This is the reason I saw the dietician a couple months back. I know there has to be a better way to eat to make my food last that extra hour so I do not thwart all my earlier efforts. You see, I have always struggled with this since starting to lose weight.
Do you guys have any ideas for me? What can I eat that is salty but not high in calories, sodium or fat? I am not super fond of popcorn. Sometimes it does the trick and sometimes it doesn't. My sister had almonds this weekend so I brought some of those. Unfortunately, they are at my dorm and I am house sitting. In fact, the owner had chips. They were so yummy!

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?
