I had a pretty quiet day Monday. Of course, I talked to a few family members on the phone that day with their well wishes, and then because I was bored I ended up texting a guy in Charleston that I haven't spoken to in forever. We ended up on the phone, and I went to bed way too late. Sounds like an exciting day, right? Well, that's how people my age roll. Okay, I really need to stop making myself sound like I'm ancient here. I'm not THAT old. I just feel like it some days.
Anyway, I got a hell of a birthday present though. Our awesome Navy SEALS made it so that my birthday was the first day the planet was a much safer place without bin Laden wasting valuable oxygen. How about them apples?! That was a hell of a gift, I thought. But then, our military rocks!
I've been back to my healthy eating thang this past week. I managed to drop 7 pounds so far. It's amazing what simply getting up off of your ass will accomplish. I also ordered myself some Zumba tapes, mainly due to my blogging friends telling me how great it is. Wait, did I just say tapes? Ummm, CD's! Let's just show your age some more today, Krissy.
Anyway, I'm going to Zumba my way to a much slimmer me to share with you all. I have motivation for the weight loss too since I have a friend getting married next month, and Sister #3 and I booked ourselves a cruise to Key West and the Bahamas in December. I know December isn't exactly the most ideal time, but I'm going on a freaking cruise! For the first time EVER! I really wish it was right after I finish school, but that's okay. I have no idea what to do about summer clothes in December since I'm hoping to be a lot smaller by then. My goal is to loose 50 pounds before the trip. I'm hoping to lose more than that, but I didn't want to set my goal too high. I think 50 pounds in 7 months is totally doable, and surpass-able.
I'm excited about the whole thing though. I've never really taken a true vacay in my adult life. Every time I've taken that much time off, it's usually to go see family and/or friends. I plan to be about THIS intoxicated..
Okay, I guess I better go try to finish up my homework for the week so I can go catch up on what you all are up to. I will try to be much better about entertaining you all here. I can't believe I've been such a slacker lately. Graduation is coming soon, folks! Or at least, I keep trying to convince myself of that.
