On another note, some know that I have been doing weight watchers since January. I have had really good results! I have lost about 15 pounds, which I think is great! Now, I gotta tone it up! I have stepped up the exercise this week! I have gotten on the treadmill 5 days this week and did weights and abs 3 days! That is really good for such a lazy girl as me! You gals that run 5 miles a day! More power to you! Maybe one day I will get there! But for today, I am proud of my treadmill work! Weight Watchers took away 4 of my points this week. Apparently they do that when you lose weight....what a bummer! It has been tough! Who knew 4 little points would make such a big dif! Score 2 for reasons to get on that treadmill though! You get a point for 30 minutes! Yesterday, I ate a banana and orange juice for breakfast. When I looked up my points, imagine my horror when I realized that cost me 4 POINTS! That's right you read it right 4 of my 20 points! I won't be making that mistake again! From now on, no more fruit juice for me! Water it is!
However, orange juice brings me to my last point. Good ole Vitamin C! I think I need it. Since I have been going to the kindergarten everyday, I have gotten sick 3 times this semester. The current ailment is PINK EYE...yea I know gross, right! I think it's from the kids....really I do. I love those little creatures, but I gotten tighten up the old immune system if I am planning on teaching! Anybody got any tips? I am not a big fan of the multi vitamin....not sure why, but I really have an aversion to taking those big monster pills. A girl told me yesterday that Air born is good. Hmmm....maybe I will try it. I know one thing though, I am not wasting a fifth of my daily weight watchers points on some OJ for the vitamin C. I will skip down to GNC and get some tablets!
Peace Out bloggers! I am headed to Pickwick for a fishing and boating weekend with the boyfriend and the puppy! The weather is supposed to be great! I need a little break!

I have now realized that this is not necessarily the case. I am happier now that I have been in quite a while. Things are calm, and I like it.
Everything is exactly how i want it. I miss my mom, but I am living my life, for the first time in a while, for me and only me. I am absolutely in love with my boyfriend. He believes in me and supports me, even though I have been tough this year. I love my dog, he makes me smile every single day. I have a chance to get a degree that will allow me to do something that I will be great at, and love!!
I wont't keep being googly, but I just want the world to know that I am happy. So, if you are feeling down, realize that even when life throws you mud and keeps throwing you mud, there CAN BE happiness at the end!
