I have to say, this is getting pretty tough. Its awful seeing everyone I know go back to Valdosta State while I am in Washington 3,000 miles away. Not only do I get to watch everyone go back to the place I love, but I know absolutely no one up here. I think its all just kind of getting to me...

I haven't made any friends because the only time I get to get out and do something is just to go to work, and that's like 30 minutes away. So, I can't just meet someone and be like, oh, come hang out at my place...cuz they don't live near me. Also, I haven't seen my boyfriend in almost 2 1/2 months. This is longest we've ever gone without seeing each other and its getting really difficult. I'm not complaining and saying that I shouldn't have moved out here, I just needed to vent. I love it here, I really do...its just getting REALLY tough not having anyone else here. Its just family, and yes - they are amazing, but I need a friend.

On top of everything already expressed, I. Need. To. Go. To. The. Doctor. Oh my gosh, not even kidding. I've got like 7 things I need to go for now, but I don't have any insurance and I'm not paying $300 for a doctor to see me. It is so frustrating.

I think I'm done now, you can go on with your day. :)

I started work the other day at H&M, and I want to say that yes - I am an employee of H&M, but anything I say only reflects my personal opinions and not those of the company. (there's my disclaimer, H&M)

Now that we've got that out of the way - I FINALLY got the perfect shade of pink for my nails.

As you can see, its absolutely perfect.

Another thing I did today was go through Kaitlyn's closet with her and get rid of all the 'too big and too small' clothes. We separated stuff she would be wearing for school and stuff she would just be wearing at home. Apparently that's a big accomplishment, who knows? It took forever, and she refused to finish trying on shirts because both of her arms hurt from her shots that she'd gotten earlier today.

I did laundry today - you know how I feel about that if you've been reading my posts since I was actually in college. Which by the way, I'm not doing anymore...haha. I will just be working now until I can afford it because they expect me to pay $1500 in 3 months, and I think that's absolutely freakin crazy. Yay for not being a Washington state resident! :P

I cleaned mine and Kaitlyn's room today - yes, that included cleaning under her freakin bed. Awful. I worked out along with The Biggest Loser game for the wii again. (I started that yesterday. haha)

Well, that's all for now folks!

Life is Rough.

A lot of things have been going on lately! I've been working really hard on my new diet and exercise, and its been kind of stressful because I'm really not losing as much as I wanted to. On this diet, the guy who designed it said you were only supposed to walk 20-30 min a day depending on what 'phase' you're in, but that just doesn't cut it for me. I walked for 20 minutes for like...2 days. After that, my goal was just to go a mile (don't judge...I haven't exercised in a while). Eventually, I started jogging, and I moved up to a mile and a half.

I've also been watching the Biggest Loser and it has really gotten me motivated. So much that today, I ran a mile as fast as I could just to see what my time was. (I really just wanted to beat Tracey from Season 8's time...I don't like her, ha!) I ended up beating her time, and I was very happy! I know now how long it takes me to run a mile (and like I said before, no details included ;)) and I can go from there.

I also mentioned that I haven't been losing as much weight as I had expected. I expected to lose 2 pounds a week since that's what Mr. Dukan said would happen, but I'm realizing that its not gonna happen for me. The past week I've been doubling or tripling my exercise, and I have been the same weight for like a week. Its AWFUL. But, on the upside, I have lost 3 1/2 inches around my waist and 1 around my hips. That's GOT to be something...my clothes are actually beginning to fit a little looser. :)

Anyways, just for ANNE, that was my kind of sorta not really another teasing kinda blog. ;)
