Happy Monday everyone! I didn’t plan a post for today because I kind of forgot. So I decided today I needed to give you all an update. I posted at the beginning of this month all the goals that I wanted to accomplish, things I wanted to change. So here is an update. A not so good update.
My first goal was to get to the gym three times a week. I have actually, almost, stuck to that plan. I was going to go Friday night for my third time last week, but work kept me later than I had expected and all my plans were shot. The week before I went three times. I am enjoying the gym and plan to continue to go.
I have not baked the first thing…But I plan on doing that tomorrow. I am making red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. It should be delicious and I will share some pictures of that.
I have been so bad at writing something every day. I have become lazy in my writing. I have not lost my imagination, just my drive to sit and write. I have to figure out something to fix this and quickly. I haven’t been writing in a long time. Good news though, I will have two parts of Soul Collectors up this week! One will be tomorrow and the other will be either Wednesday or Thursday. I haven’t decided yet.
I also haven’t been writing what I am grateful for everyday. I make a mental note of it while I am laying down to go to sleep, but I don’t write it down. I started writing it down, but then I kept forgetting. Maybe it’s the laziness in me. I might try and pick it back up tonight.
Lastly, I did take Pixel to the dog park! But it was a total flop. There was only one other small dog that came in to the small dog area. Pixel was terrified of the other dog and the people. She would go up to the fence that housed all the big dogs, but as soon as one of the big dogs came running up she would hide behind me. But, she is so freaking smart. With every day that passes you can see her brain growing almost. You can’t trick her when you pretend to throw a ball. She even knows when I have dropped her toy behind the couch because I don’t want to play anymore. I love my Pixel.
I have not lost any weight. Well, I have, but I will drop down a few pounds and then go right back up. I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. I guess I just have to pay more attention to what I am eating and making sure I am drinking more water? I’m so annoyed with this whole weight loss thing. You see people all the time talking about losing weight. They stop drinking soda and start going to the gym a few times a week. Then they show up and they have lost 10 pounds or better.
I stopped drinking soda at the beginning of the year. I lost no weight from it. I even stopped drinking so many sweet drinks. Most days I only drink water. I have sweet tea occasionally. I don’t eat as many sweets as I used to. I am going to the gym, and working my butt off in the deli. What more can a girl do? I sometimes feel like I have to work out like a body builder, just to lose a few pounds.
