We had a blast. This year, the rules changed. For the first time ever... the inmates were allowed to touch you. This made it 10x better. I got pushed up against a wall, got my throat 'knifed' over 5 times, and the best part... I had 3 inmates drag Sami, Dani, & I away from the group! Shelby & Lori tried to save us, but they couldn't... They had to keep moving on through the haunted house! So finally, they released Sami, Dani, & I... but we couldn't catch back up to Shel & Lori. AND during the last bit of the haunted house... Shelb & Lori got split up! It was HILARIOUS. We luckily took SO many pictures... I could go on for hours about how amazing it was. Most importantly... Shelby had an amazing weekend!
My sister gets married in December... It is getting so close. And my pocket book is not ready for this... I don't think I am either. Growing up is really weird. I like growing up... Just not the whole... Not seeing each other everyday stuff.
So tomorrow I start Tabata bootcamp! So excited. It is at 6 am, and since Shelby is moving back up here in a week she is going to be doing it as well! It is a 7 week program, super intense, so I will definitely be posting my success on here.
So, in some free time I had this weekend, I found a quote... shocker, I know.
"Love yourself and be proud of everything you do, even your mistakes. Because even mistakes mean you're trying."
What 'mistakes' are the first mistakes you think of when you read this quote? I know everyone thinks of one. For me? My eating habits. As I have said before... Things have been very different for me since April. But... Not this different. Before this week I couldn't tell you the last time I ate actual fast food... But I have been doing it so often. I hate it.
I hate the way I feel recently. I am always so tired. Every chance I can, I have been looking to take a nap. Which has never been like me, i used to hate naps. I actually skipped my biology class on Wednesday this past week because I was that tired. And I LOVE that class.
SO. I have a plan on how to change this. Everything starts somewhere. For me, I started a little over a year ago now on my healthy lifestyle. I am not starting over, I simply went through a rough patch. You have to go through hard times to reach your goals. I just went down a wrong path, but I will fix it. I never will settle for less.
- Wake up when the alarm goes off the first time.
- Eat what will fuel your body, no more processed foods.
- Drink more water.
- Daily workouts & stretching.
- Release all negative energy.
- Smile. Every chance I can.
- Follow my TIU monthly calendar.
- Keep my room organized.
- Wear my retainer every night.
I feel confident in every other aspect in my life, this is just going to help me get back on track. I can do this, and I will do this. The only thing stopping me, is me.
"The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do."
Tomorrow is 7 months. I miss you Grandma.
