Just hours to go! (And a little art)

Well we’re inside of 24 hours now. Everything is packed, now its just a waiting game. I’m ready, I’ve never been so ready. The guys are almost there as it is and we’ll eb there in just a few hours. benscarydrawing.jpgCheck out this pic that Ben drew, (click for large version) I think he needs to be on some meds or something. Hopefully he’ll post a comment about what this all means. Off to relax before I leave…

I feel so alive!

The weather is beautiful today, at least for now. I woke up at 8ish got out of bed and started my saturday routine a la spring break packing and cleaning. I dunno why, but for some reason today I have a ton of energy. I kept dreaming about next week and all the cool stuff we’re going to do.

I spoke with Kyle and John on the road today, at 1230ish they were in Upton, KY and having a blast. I wish you both safe travels and a good trip. See you on Monday morning!

More to come later this weekend before I leave including exclusive artwork from Ben!

It’s almost here

Well the time is almost upon us. Spring Break is here. Last night at about 830 it was final, the last class was dismissed. A quote from my favorite movie says “Just a few bumps and we’re haulin’ the mail” I’m at work now, heading to Kokomo for dinner with Kyle tonight and then packing and finding everything I need tomorrow. Sunday I’ll pick up any last minute details and head to Indy. Monday morning I’ll be on a plane, in the afternoon I’ll be on the boat. Life doesn’t get much better right now…

It’s almost Spring (Break!)

I woke up this morning to the sound of rain boucing off my windows. I just didn’t want to get out of my warm bed basically and face the day. Unfortunately we all have our burdens, mine today is work. I headed out into the unusually warm morning air, the rain had stopped. It was humid, sticky, warm, comfortable. I love it. I felt like on of those spring mornings, you know, the ones that show up around Easter? I love those mornings. Sadly it’s raining again, the wind has picked up. I can’t help but think that spring is in our midst and just beginning to show itself.

Only a few days now until the cruise, everyone is getting excited, stressed, and ready to go…

212!

Usually when I post here it’s about the number of posts or comments that I’m getting well today is a new kind of post. I’m posting because I’m down to 212 lbs. That may not sound like a good thing to some of you but I was over 225 just 10 days ago. I haven’t been a diet per se, more of a watch what I eat and try to eat healthier thing.

You see before this I was eating McDonald’s and Taco Bell almost daily and usually a lot of it. Well I’ve stopped eating cheeseburgers basically and haven’t had T-Bell in 2 weeks almost. I don’t drink pop that much, I’ve been drinking more water and I’ve stopped drinking sugar in my tea at home (that’s a huge step) and I’m trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. I had broccoli salad for lunch the other day! Me, green vegetables, healthy, it’s a miracle!

I can honestly say that I feel better and I think I’m starting to look a bit better, although it’s not showing yet. I hope to be under 200 by the end of the month and then down even more by spring break, not that I’ll look great on a beach, but at least I’ll be somewhat healthier. I don’t have a target weight, I just know that I need to eat a little better than I used to, I was starting to feel bad physically with all the junk I was putting in myself.
Here’s to another 12 pounds!

I think I was productive

Today was one of those days with lots to do and honestly I think I did more than I expected. I feel very accomplished right now.

I got up, fixed my uncle’s computer. My g-ma and I decided that my cousin needed her own computer so we found a Dell that will suit her just fine. Nothing fancy, but it’ll work great. I’m paying for it, g-ma is paying me back in a month. I went to Kokomo and fixed Franki’s computer kinda. It works fine, just not as well as I’d like it to. I read the WSJ for the first time, not bad, I feel so adult now. 🙂 Erin and I got our plane tickets for spring break. We’re set and I’m excited about the trip again. So today I’ve fixed 2 computers, ordered 1 more, bought 2 plane tickets. $1200 and I really didn’t spend any of my money. A good day really.

Time for bed so I can be up to watch the Colts pound the Steelers!
