Yesterday was awesome. It rained all day long… 😀 Joy! It didn’t start out so great… I woke up at 4:30… then 5:00 and every ten minutes there after until 6:00 when I got up to finish studying for my ABI 102 midterm. I kept having nightmares about my midterm, like I knew nothing before hand, or where to go, and when I actually got the test is was in some weird language that I couldn’t hope to understand. The midterm went alright… we’ll see. *knock on wood* But when I got home, the house was empty and I was free to not study. So… I put up Christmas decorations. That was fun in and of itself. I love decorating. The guys don’t seem to care, but as long as nothing gets torn down or destroyed, I’m happy. Then I decided to take a shower, but first I weighed myself (I have to do that when no one is home because the bathroom is totally carpeted and the kitchen is the closest hard floor… and I like to be as ACURATE as possible 😉 ). I have hit a milestone in my diet. I have broken into a new phase of weight and left a whole other group of tens behind. I’ve lost 18 pounds so far and it feels REALLY good. 🙂 So, I got dressed and ran around the lake. I’m going to do it! I’m putting in the work and it’s paying off! This is really awesome! The rest of my day was pretty ordinary, but it still felt good because of the morning. I slept like a baby last night.
