So Proud of myself today

Thursday, January 09, 2014


So while riding the bus to school an old woman brought up the conversation about mental health. However she was using the term psycho. I my self have bipolar disorder and immediately was correcting her.

I first told her it was called mental illness not the term she was using. She tried to correct me and say that was the medical term for the conditions. So I continued to tell her why she was wrong and that it is a derogatory term. She told me this, "If they think it's a derogatory term than they most be derogatory them self."

That made me scream a bit inside while keeping a calm on the outside. There were some choice words I badly wanted to say to her, but I knew to prove my point I had to stay calm and focus.

I than told her, "We are not derogatory and I my self have a mental illness. I'm a student with a GPA above 3.0 and a well rounded individual. Using such a term is like using a derogatory term for races" She didn't want to hear it and the subject got turned over to coupons that came in the mail yesterday. I won the argument. WooHoo!!!!

Are you comforatable in your own skin

Monday, November 04, 2013


One thing I've had to do is get use to myself in my own skin. It's hard to accept this current body of mine as beautiful, but the more I stay in the 'nude' the more I embrace the beauty my skin provides.

How do you embrace yourself to fill beautiful?

    All of those women are sexy. I was and I'm still kind of comfortable in my skin, but as I've gotten older.. My body has started growing hair along my earlobes, out my nose and earholes and I've even seen a patch on my lower back! Luckily, I don't have hair on my upper back (yet) but I'm afraid one day I will. Then I think I'd have to wear a shirt all the time. :(

It's a different kind of self-concienceness. But other than that, I am happy with whatever my weight is.

    We all feel we have body "flaws". I am learning to not look at those flaws, but rather look at where I was and where I am right now. It also helps that DH loves me no matter my size....although I must admit he compliments me everyday on how great/sexy etc. I look. Got to like that extra reinforcement LOL emoticon

Sunday=Better plainning

Sunday, October 06, 2013



Today is going to be busy. I have to go to the soon to be in-laws and measure out the weeding area so we know where to put the props. Than it's the task of getting said props from my house to theirs this next few weeks. Plus setting them up.



Then I have to divided up my time into three categories. Crafting, Studying time, and Exercise. One nice thing is that I realized I don't have to be bringing my science book to class. That will be a nice relief off my back while walking to and from school. I'm not going to let myself wimp out and not do it.



Of course Studying is the most important thing to do. I have to get my reading in or I'll get lost. Plus I have to be ahead of the class by Oct 30. I have to take a test two days early, because I'll be getting married. So study study study till my little head explodes. But, still manage to get my dress and everything else completed.

    Sounds like a very workable plan, just do it! Glad you are so concrete and specific, that's how actions take place and good things happen! Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the Spark Goodie! I am studying diligently but mine is everyday as my bigggggest test is in 4 weeks. I have been stuck like glue to my books for 5 weeks. My physician husband, gave me an order to go out for dinner and a movie this evening, so I guess I must comply or suffer the consequences. Sadly that means more work, but it is probably more effective to move away from my study for a break and return. If you do anything too long, it can have a adverse effect. I have learned that in my study and know too well the harm induced.

Have a great week of wedding preparation and school! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Friday = Shopping

Friday, October 04, 2013



Got some pretty good coupons, and sales this weekend. Already hit the meat sale today. I need to get stocked up on some basics again, since it's the first of the month. Later today I'll be getting 12 dozen eggs for $0.99 plus a few other items.



On Sat. I'll be going to a different store and get 15% off my entire produce order. emoticon On top of that the bag lettuce is on sale for $0.99, after store coupon, plus I get an extra 10% before the 15% off the entire order. Don't think there is any excuse out there to not eat my veggies and fruits now. Heck the baby carrots are only $1 a bag this week, plus some other pretty sweet deals.



My milk will only be $1 per 1/2 gallon. I love this kind of sale. Can get two different types for me and my fiance. He prefers to have only whole milk, where I don't want all the fat. Typical male, at least frm what I've observed, he drinks it all way to fast. I swear I got to go buy him milk at least every 1 and a half weeks to 2 weeks.



Since I got the groceries going pretty squared away I need to focus on getting the exercise in. School has started, and I got a lot of projects to finish for the weeding, but that is no excuse to not get the exercise in. I do plain to walk on most days, but think I should be planning on lifting weights while at the gym. I want to lose a dress size by my weeding day on Halloween. To do that I got to kick my shelf into doing what I need to do.



The schools gym is free for me to use, and it's got some pretty good equipment for the athletics to use. The main thing Is that I need to budget my time so I can make sure to hit them gym at least 3 times a week, and walk to and from school as much as possible.



The walk to and from school is about 1 hour and 10 minutes. On top of that is up and down hills. So all together a pretty good sweaty work out. Plus I have the weight of my books on my back. That defiantly has to add in to the calories burned, or muscles build.



Can't wait to see the inches drop this month. emoticon

Halloween is almost here AHHHH!!! I'm not ready!!!

Thursday, October 03, 2013



Halloween equals my weeding day. I still got to finish my dress and some of the props. This stuff is so time consuming.



On top of that I just started my first week of school. Yikes!! Talk about overload. I've got Microeconomics, Accounting, and Physical Science this term. Think Physical Science will be the tough part.



I actually get Economics pretty well. It's the one class in High school I slept through and still got an A. I am going into business and art. I wouldn't be doing it if my brain didn't already get it. The difficult part will be learning all the vocab, but I should get an A in the class.



Science is my worst subject of all. This is the last term I have on the subject for my associates degree. Once I move on to bachelors and than masters I'm sure I'll have more to do. As long as I get out of the class with a C I'll be happy.



This is always what is going on in my head when I have to do math and science. As long as I get the c I'll get the degree. My actual GPA is 3.3 emoticon



I have to save a bit of money right now. So I'll be walking to and from school most days. It equals out to about an hour and ten minutes one way. And it's very very very hilly. so good workout routine. I however need to work on the food intake. I will be shopping through out the weekend for some awesome deals. I'm getting some salad mixes for $0.99 before adding another 10% off the bag and 15% off my entire produce order at my local grocery store. emoticon



I found an awesome local couponing group and now save at least 50% when i go to the stores. I really like getting the fiber one bars. there awesome and in almost every weeks coupon this past two months. I do put some to the side for the swap, because I wont use them or i shouldn't have it anyways. which helps me get the right kind of coupons for the healthy food.



Here are a few of the pumpkins I've carved this year. I love carving pumpkins. I've gotten pretty good at it. I did get a tool to help with the gross part. you add it to a drill and walla the gunk is clean and your hands aren't as messy. This are styrofoam. so I get to use them forever. LOL
