Wow, an interesting day so far.

First of all I'd like to mention a challenge I will be doing. It's through my gym and there are cash prizes. It's a 90 weight loss challenge and I'm going to do it, it starts in september, as a way to motivate myself. I don't think I'll win as the last winner lost 98 lbs in 90 days which is both crazy and unhealthy. So I'll work hard and do my best while not going overboard. Every participant gets 1 month free memebership for every 5 lbs lost so even if I come in last, as long as I lose some, I come out a winner. 1st place wins $10,000, 2nd gets $5,000 and 3rd gets $2500. I've already done the math and if I wanted to try for 90 pounds in 90 days I would be eating 1200 calories a day, no more, and having to burn about 2000 every day so I'm not going to go that crazy. I just figure I can try my best and hopefully get some free months at the gym ^_^

Ok so today, I went out with a co-worker to buy some shelves to install in our closet. We are trying to organize the office a bit better. We bought some really nice ones but have had a tough time installing them. The walls in the closet are concrete bricks, so we bought some special screws, but the screws just keep turning. They don't seem to want to grip the concrete, they just keep stripping the holes. So we're leaving it til monday and are going to get some special anchor things, I've never intsalled shelves at all lol, never mind in concrete. I will be though, I bought a closet organizer for my bedroom. I think I'll put it in this weekend because I'm not going to the cottage and I have sunday off.

Last night was interesting too. I'm exhausted today. See, my power went out last night, but it was really weird. It went out in only part of my apartment at first. I thought I blew a fuse but when I checked them no, and the new one didn't make a different. My bedroom light and one outlet were off, my bathroom, hallway and my fridge were all not working. I emptied my freezer because I had no idea why only some of the power went out when it wasn't a fuse. I put all the stuff into another freezer I have and went to bed and I would ask the super in the morning. Well at about 2 am all my power went out, I checked though and out in the hallway the lights were still on, so I'm just getting more confused. I only woke up because my CPAP machine turned off when the power went out, it's kinda hard to breathe without power in one of those things lol. So anyway, I was up for a little while, but then randomly the power came back on, all of it, thank goodness. I went back to sleep but of course, I was about an hour short now. So this morning I ended up being late for work, forgot to reset my alarm, and I'm still so tired. I am starting to feel better though ^_^ The prescription the doctor gave me is helping, I just need more sleep lol. I swear I'll be in bed at like 8 tonight lol.

I'm actually doing ok for eating today ^_^ better than I have previously. I did have a McDonald's egg McMuffin for breakfast but I had a fruit and fiber muffin with it instead of the hashbrown. I only ate out today because I was running late thx to the power outage. For lunch I had chili and a whole wheat bun. I also bought one of those health drinks with veggies in it. Normally I hate them but this one is apple, kiwi and greens so I mostly taste the apple and kiwi. I got myself a banana for a snack and I'll figure out dinner when I get home. I will still go over my calories today but my goal this month is eating healthy foods, as much as I want, not staying within range. I should only go over a bit though and I have made better choices today. At least I'm getting some nutrients in me ^_^ and hopefuly by the time the challenge starts in september, I'll have some good habits under my belt ^_^

Hope everyone has a great weekend ^_^
