i may not be updating but i am making progress!

so wow, it's already been two weeks since i posted in here. it feels like just a few days. my life has been hectic. but! i have managed to make it to the gym almost every day i was supposed to, i am still in pain most of the time but i'm getting used to it. :)
my birthday is in 15 days and i'm taking my vacation on the 25th so i won't be updating for a few days if not the whole week then.
the boy and i are going down to san antonio for the weekend to catch up with family and friends and possibly have lake floating plans for july 4th.
my first summer semester is almost done, and it has been hard. but after next summer semester i just have 1 more year of feasibly easy classes to go and i'm done with an associates'! i've been talking to a lot of people, and have a LOT more to talk to about a job in the career field i am going to school for, and it might happen a lot sooner than i thought.
i've been fighting a credit collection agency because they told me i had a certain amount of time to pay off a small bill(around $500) before it went to my credit report and two weeks before they told me the due date was, i get a notice from my credit monitoring service and guess what? it's on there! so i've been on the phone with them trying to get in touch with someone that will listen up to two times a day, and it is so frustrating. i had just paid off everything on my credit report and my score was going up and bam. bad credit before they even gave me a chance. so yea, i'm not happy with them.
registration for fall semester started today and i had to actually drive to several banks to figure out how much money i could spend for tuition and books since my financial aid STILL hasn't gone through yet, 5 months later. this whole time, every time i've asked the school i just transferred to in january, what else i had to do, they kept telling me everything was fine. i kept telling them are you sure? because online it says that it's not processing because i don't have a high school transcript with you guys, or i don't have a college transfer transcript with you, or my fafsa is wrong, or whatever problems i've been having, and each time they've been telling me noo nooo, online just has to catch up with our computers, you're fine, don't worry! and now they tell me even though they have almost 40 hours of college under my name, i STILL have to provide them with a high school transcript. so NOW when i really NEED the money, i have more hoops to jump through.
i haven't weighed myself yet because i'm scared to find out i haven't lost anything. it FEELS like i have, but i've been putting off stepping on the scale to find out for sure. i'm also trying to psyche myself up by saying that i'll gain muscle before i lose fat so that could be a reason why i haven't lost anything, if and when i do step on the scale at the gym and find out.
i've been trying to do some spring cleaning around the house but i've filled up my schedule so much that by the time i get off work on friday and have nothing to do, i definitely don't want to clean. i think i'm going to do that on part of my vacation.
also, i haven't had any caffeine in two or three days now(maybe more?) and although i've had some minor headaches every once in a while it's definitely not as bad as when i'd stop it altogether and fiend for it.
and finally, the boy is mildly hyphochondriacal(sp, whatever) and has convinced himself that he has high cholesterol so he has actually, believe it or not, been trying to eat healthier.... and i had nothing to do with it! so this morning he made breakfast with fruit and wheat toast and juice.... it was a nice surprise!
now i have to get back to some chores around the house, but don't think i've been ignoring my diet! i am still going!
