Woo Hoo! Morning Chickadoodles!
Wanted to capture the autumn leaves that are changing here in Virginia.
Well its a cold and rainy day here.
We are expecting showers throughout the day and a high of 58. Still can't shake this cold or whatever it is. I'm thinking I'm going to have to take off some time next week or try and get an appointment on a Saturday. Really can't afford to play hookie again, I had to work late that last time to make up for it and my exercise plan suffered because of it.
The school still
has not called me back to give me an answer yet. I found out that the Academic Review Board was just that. A review of my past experience to see if I was worth letting back in. They can only make a recommendation to the school that I'm allowed to come back in. Ultimately it's up to the Provost. The review board was supposed to deliver my paperwork to her the day after the meeting (October 25th) and I was supposed to have a decision by that Friday. I've called the school and no one has heard anything. Maybe she's out in a field blowing bubbles instead of doing her job.
I did get word from financial aid that I'm approved and so are my parents for more loans. Stinks I'm under 25.... I can't believe that I've been from under their roof for 4 years and I'm still considered a dependant.
No grants for me.... booooooo!
Ok.... enough pouting... I needed to vent.
But alas.... there is sunshine
behind the clouds.
I started off my November with a bang yesterday. I did very well on plan this week and it continued into yesterday. I went to the gym last night while the meatloaf was baking and got in an hour's worth of exercise.
I'm still just doing the treadmill even though I know you are supposed to change it up a bit.
I can't lift weights yet, but I'm going to try here soon other wise I'll be all leg strength. I'm considering getting the PUSH dvd's because I love Bob the trainer from The Biggest Loser. I know Kim uses them but is it really worth getting another dvd? Do they really work? Feel free to give me some input!
And now the big news we've all been waiting for! I'm at a new low! Wo0o0o Ho0o0o! I weighted in this morning at 195.5 which is exactly 10 pounds
below my starting weight of 205.5. I'm very excited, and I hope I lose more before my 2 challenges end.
I'm shaking my tail feathers alright..... to the tune of some more
for breakfast and snack today! Careful with that coffee... I give ye a toast to coffee and my chai tea obsession.
Great job staying on plan! You Can Do It!!
Yucky weather is always a bummer. I find I get a lot more done in the apartment when I don't care to go out in the rain. That is if I'm not sleeping in late.
I haven't line danced since I was a kid.... I'm sure if I got up there and tried I'd make a fool of myself.
I got your PM just so you know. I'm going to try and write back this afternoon if we arent' too busy at work. Hope you don't have to walk in the rain to get to class today.
You'll get a nasty cold like me.
Sorry you're sick hun.... grab the puppies and cuddle. I find that dog's and cat's have an awareness that someone is ill and know just the right cuddle to fix it!
Lindy & Angel:
Great job being on plan and resisting the candy temptation! Be good!
Well it's back to sitting in my silent office.... my boss still hasn't come in to work on invoicing so I'm sure I'll be stacked with paperwork tomorrow.
