Today is the sunday marking the end of the turkey holiday
although I am happy to spend time with the family, I'm also happy to be back in Milwaukee at my apartment getting ready for the oncoming week. I just cooked a delicious meal for my dad at my apartment for the first time!
I really like cooking, but I'm always complaining on how long it takes. I don't care if it took 8 hours, I enjoy every minute of it... but when I have so much homework and all the other things that college kids complain about, it's hard to say 'okay, time to cook' when you have a 20 page paper due.
I really enjoyed cooking for him, and I even packed a great healthy lunch! (I'm looking forward to that tomorrow :D) I am overall very happy with how my weekend went. I was able to talk to Evan, which is good, considering I haven't talked to him in about 4 days :( I really love that guy :)
Today, we talked about my battling addiction with caffeine. I am 13 days caffeine free.
It's hard for me to say that I want to completely cut caffeine out of my life, but I want to. When I say 'maybe just one soda later', its really my addiction talking. I don't want to completely outlaw caffeine from my life, but I want to have control over it. and if that means not drinking it for a few months, so be it. I think if i can quit the soda habit all together, the amounts of positives will outweigh the negatives. It's just getting there that's the hard part lol.
So I have decided that I am allowed to drink natural caffeine such as what is found in teas. I
TEA!!! hot or iced, I love it all. I think that i need to hone in on that if i'm going to quit the soda. I also need to start working out more consistently. I always want to do it, then i get ready, and (of course, SUDDENLY) i forget i had to do something very important. Do you think i could have waited 30 minutes? My gym is right down the street from me, but somehow my body is so use to excuses I don't even realize them until the guilt sets in 15 minutes later.
It's a cycle I want to break.
So tomorrow, I am going to work and then after work I have convinced my coworker to join a gym with me so that we can work after work together! We both weigh the same weight, and we both have PCOS, so I'm really looking forward to doing this together. Her name is Brittany, and she's an awesome 25 year old mother of a beautiful daughter named arista. We have a reward system planned out and I'm a pretty competitive gal. I hope that once she starts working out with my, my competitive but finally gets into gear and I can kick my butt into shape!
Well I'm also attempting to go to bed at a decent hour and even somehow try to get a full nights rest. Everyone says that it's better to go to bed early then early to rise and all, but sometimes things need to get done and they need to get done tonight. I'm hoping that if I start developing a better more routine sleeping habit, that I will sleep better, and be more awake during the day.
So for now, goodnight sp, and I'll see you soon!
