Day 37

School has been kickin my booty lately.

This is my last quarter, so I am really trying to finish strong. I am going to school to be a computer scientist. I absolutely love my major, but I cannot wait to get out of school. I will officially be done in 51 days.

So what does all of this have to do with losing weight?! I have found it SO hard to find time to work out in the past. Actually, I think I always just made the lack of time an excuse. This quarter is no different. I have just as much school work as any other quarter, yet I have suddenly found the time to work out. Hmm, imagine that...

Even though I had to take a couple days off because of my stomach problems, I am so proud of how I have done so far. Without changing my life drastically, I have managed to lose 9.5 pounds. I can really feel my body thanking me every day. I still have more to go before I will be content, but I know that it will happen.

I just wanted to let all of you know how proud I am of all of you. It takes a lot to stop making excuses and find the "time" to work out. Your body is thanking you all every day. At times it may be hard, but push through it.

This weekend was fabulous. MyMr surprised me and had a little weekend getaway planned.

He booked a room at a hotel for us to stay at. It is at the place in the picture above! It was a suite, so it had its own kitchen, living room, and bedroom. It was so nice. We spent a lot of much needed time together. On top of that, I did a pretty decent job eating too!

Last night we went to dinner at Hunter's Steakhouse. I got a New York Strip Steak. It came with potatoes, onion rings (which I only at one of), and a Caesar salad. I only ate about half the steak, half of the potatoes, all of the salad, and one onion ring. I was full too! :)

This morning, we had a complementary breakfast at our hotel. I ate a piece of french toast, some breakfast potatoes, and some pineapple. Then myMr and I went to subway for lunch. I got a footlong sub, but only ate half. Then I had the other half for dinner.

Not too shabby, eh?

I hope you all had a GREAT weekend!

I am going to weigh in tomorrow morning... let's hope that my weekend choices didn't reflect poorly on the scale!!! :)

Take care until next time,
