As I have mentioned, I’m working on losing this awful weight that I gained. I’m setting aside a nice chunk of money to be able to go clothes shopping when I reach a size 14-16 again. I know that still doesn’t put me at a healthy weight. I liked my body the most at size 14-16 range. I felt cute. Not ugly. Yet, I still didn’t feel unsafe.
Right now, shopping for clothes is a chore and honestly, I don’t find anything that I really like. I look in envy at the cute outfits in the size 8-16 range. So, that is actually my motivation to lose the weight right now. With me returning into fast food again, I know I’m not going to have many down moments while I’m at work. Many people think fast food work is the easiest job they can have until they actually get behind the counter and actually have to do it. You have to be quick on your feet and at keeping up at the pace that everyone wants to be served. (Trust me, hungry people want to be fed quickly.)
I’ve been looking for fairly easy recipes that I can make when I get home for the family. Del doesn’t like to cook much, and if I don’t cook then we end up eating whatever is in sight or going out to eat. I am actually tired of eating out. I want to get back into the routine of cooking for our family. Granted, there are times that the kids just flat out want to be stubborn about eating new and healthy foods, but they are just going to have to get over it. (I did get my oldest to appreciate and like water over other drinks, but it took me three years to do it.)
My husband is allergic to soooo many foods, it makes it really hard to find food that will feed all of us that isn’t going to cost an arm and a leg to make. We’re on a fixed budget, and it’s only going to get worse here soon. However, God does provide for those who take care of themselves. So, I have a pretty basic menu planned out. I have only accomplished getting two weeks worth of meals planned out. I’m at a stand still for the following two weeks. However, that’s a major progress for me.
Today has been pretty productive so far, and it’s not even close to done. I aim to get a good portion of my stem cell research paper done today. I am still determining what I want to do my marketing plan on. I did my first one on our pallet company, but I’m not overly impressed with it. For my final one, I want it to be well worth turning in. It’s so hard to believe I only have two weeks left of this semester. It feels like I just started these classes. Time is speeding by so quickly lately.
I can’t believe in a few months my mom will have been gone a year already. This has been one of the fastest years I’ve lived through in a long time. They say that time flies by when your having fun. Granted, I have been overall pretty stress free for the past year because I didn’t have any major obstacles to worry about, but nothing major happened either to make it overly fun. I’ve missed her, but I’ve been at peace with her death because she’s in a better place. I picture her riding Lance and just watching everything going on here,talking, and having a good time with ones who have gone before her. I know that may sound crazy, but that’s how I’ve coped with it.
I finally got the truck officially in my name. I LOVE it. I thought I could part with it, but there was no way I could. There are too many good memories in the truck. Not to mention, I love the way it purrs and how good it looks and runs for it’s age. I just wish it didn’t cost an arm and a leg to drive it. I can keep hoping that diesel goes down.
Well, I have rambled enough. I just needed a small break from the heavy topics. I hope this finds you doing well.
