Really want to do it

I am not happy…. Well, I AM happy, but there are certain things I really need to change.
Because I’m on anti depressants, there are some side affects… and those I am NOT happy about. I’ve been gaining weight. Not a lot, but enough to make me unhappy with what I see in the mirror. So I’ve started watching what I eat, and make sure that I eat at least 4 times a day. I try to have fruit and vegetables that I can snack on during the day and I feel a bit better already, which is a good thing.
The next thing I need to start on, is going to the gym. I work at a football club, and because of this, I get a free membership to their gym. So it’s actually pretty stupid, that I don’t use it! So I’ve written down in my calender that I have to go to the gym on certain days. That way, I knoow I’ll feel guilty if I don’t go on those days. I’m also planning on taking Zumba classes again. I really enjoy it and it’s an amazing workout.

Another thing, exercise-wise, is that I’ll be riding my bike to school every day, starting this Monday. It’s too expensive to take the bus every single day, so I’m forced to do it. This, too, will help tone everything.

I just hope I can do this – well it’s not like I have a choice. I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly log-thing. Writing down what food I’ve eaten, what exercise I’ve done, and maybe some recipes, as I’m constantly looking on Pinterest for healthy, fun food.

I think that doing that, will help as well. So, starting next Sunday (August 11th) I’ll begin my Suck It Up Series. I hope you follow it and if you have any tips, tricks or recipes, please comment 🙂

Until next time 🙂

Happy birthday to meeeee

Okay, so my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but already I’ve gotten the BEST presents!

First off – my boyfriend is amazing! This past Saturday I was told to leave the apartment at 5PM and not return until I got a text or a call from him. He told me it wouldn’t be for a couple of hours so I left with a little money and went to a café where I ran into a few friends. Fast forward to 7PM and no text… So I called and asked when I could come home and was told ‘not yet’. I kinda figured it had something to do with my birthday present and then thought that whatever it wasn’t couldn’t take THAT long….? So time ticked by and I was getting hungry! Around 8.30PM I called my dad and asked what he was doing, explaining my situation. He was at our summerhouse (not as fancy as it sounds, trust me) painting, so he couldn’t help me.

Finally around 11PM, A called, saying that he was done and that he would come and get me. I was beyond happy – but mostly to get home and get some food in my stomach.

So we get home, I get something to eat and then A asks me if I want to watch a movie or go straight to bed. I choose option B and opens the door to the bedroom….

And this beauty was greeting me! The man bought me a closet!! We haven’t had one since we moved back in February and it was driving both of us crazy.

It is absolutely perfect! He really knows me 😀

I’ve starting putting our clothes away but it’s a pretty big project – A has a LOT of clothes… and shoes! A lot more that me 😉

Moving on to the second thing… I got an email today from the school I applied to… and it pretty much says that I got IN!!! I have to go to a prepatory interview on August 14th, where I’ll get more info on the whole deal and stuff, but it says I’m in!! I did a happy-dance right there in the car (so it was more of a happy-butt-in-seat-dance) and I’ve been smiling ever since 😉

So to further congratulate myself, I decided to buy myself a little present. The laptop I’m using right now sucks – the battery is dead, which means that I have to have the power connector plugged in all the time – that is just not good enough for what I’m about to embark on.

So I kinda bought this little thing….

Now, I KNOW a lot of people are against using iPads for school, but I did some research and this will do just fine. I’ll be buying a cover with a keyboard of course – anything else would just be silly – and I can’t wait to get it! I bought it online, so I think it’ll take 4-5 working day for it to get here. But once it does, I’ll definately do a review of it.

Phew, that was a loooong post! I’ll sign off now, gotta go to bed early to get up early tomorrow and bake some strawberry cupcakes as some friends are coming to celebrate me 😀

Take care!
