i have lunch with a frew new friends at 11:30.. i'm super excited. i'm very, very suspicious of people and frankly, i've had the same best friend for almost 10 years. i've swapped in a few other friends.. very few... like 3... over those ten years... but i don't really stray too far from the super twosome that is me and my friend.
partially this is because i'm a bit anti social. okay, really anti social.. i prefer total quiet for most of my day. if i want to flap my jaws at somebody, i call this one friend. why do i need any more than that?
WELLLLL..... as many of you are aware.. sparkpeople tends to incite a very specific brand of ''i want to better my life'' and i'm no exception. what was once too much of a commitment to pay attention to anybody elses life besides mine and my family's.. i'm changing my thinking. now it seems like i can benefit from these ladies, and they can benefit from me too. they're christians, married, and mothers. 3 things we already have in common. i'm changing, so my ''secondary'' friends are going to need to change too. my best friend isn't going anywhere.. and hasn't in ten years. through make ups, break ups, kids, heartbreak and sickness... it's safe to say we are not the ''fair weather friend'' variety. and i'm so thankful for that.
i'm excited for this lunch though. i don't usually trust women. mostly due to the type of scene i was into for so long... alot of them are gossips and cut throats. but i'mm hoping that because these ladies are christians and married they will be much more mature and think outside of the box when it comes to typical female stuff.
then i have an appointment to hopefully get some assistance on our electric bill... i'm not the type to pick up any type of freebie i can get.. but man, after last month and this month.. i'm totally comfortable with accepting it if offered. we need it!!
and thennn.... Concepts in Mathematics 111 tonight... bleh!!! i love the teacher. she was my 7th grade math teacher. she's one that really cares if you are learning or not.. some math instructors just fly through the course and tell you to take notes.. mine is different. one of the reasons i swallowed my pride and requested her.. again. i had her last year but life got hectic, so i had to withdraw from her class. boo. but things are different this year... you know, the life change and what not :)
and between all of that...i need to read a bible verse, work out, do my english homework (due thursday) clean the house annnnnd prepare dinner. and get the kids dressed.... we're pj people at my house. haha.
now to the diet stuffs! yesterday, i'm happy to say i scored. i ate a very small amount of calories. but i needed to after my massive weekend (5500 calories in 2 days) i'm hoping it sort of cancels the mess out... if anything it made me feel better. also got some strength training and a 30 minute cardio workout in. i'm pretty amazed that i've lost 40lbs just doing workout videos and eating right. i didn't think that was possible, really. but i'm still getting the gym membership next month... i love going to the gym. it's like mommy time on steroids... erm no pun intended. lol.
