So, I have an oral presentation due in uh, I don't know like...an hour.

So far, I've got about 30 seconds worth of stuff to say on it so I sure hope I can make crap up when I get up there. Poem interpreting was like the worst thing that English teachers ever came up with to do. EVER!

Workout this morning was fantastic. I hate my preworkout because it makes me feel sick, but this morning I took almost a serving and a half and felt great. So great that I got through my entire workout without really ever wanting to quit halfway. I feel greatttttt. :D Shoulders are like jello though. 7 more pounds to go until I get my shoes....hopefully. I am too excited. Morgan and I went to the mall yesterday and she was looking at tennis shoes. I WANT MINE SO BAD. But I gotta wait. :(

I want my new tattoo soon too, but they're so freakin expensive. Hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll have it though! Also, I canNOT wait to go see Morgan at school. :) I miss her sooooooo much. Its awful. I love college, but I hate when the people you love move away to go to school.

Also, a BIGGGGGGG shout out to my best friend Taylor! She just started a new blog, and I figured I'd give her a couple posts before I introduced it on here. She's got a couple now and its about her hair growth! She is doing all kinds of things to get it to grow, so you should definitely check it out! -----> KISS <3

Mind Blown

Please, someone answer this. I don't know if I'm going insane or if I'm completely missing something...but I've lost this extra dollar.

Be Jealous of my Fitbit

This week hasn't been so bad, but if you combine it with the past couple weeks...phew.

I had an English paper (1,200 words) and a psychology paper (just 1 page) due the week before last, and then I had a music test and a psychology test on Monday last week, about a trillion bills due at one time, a Biology test today over 4 chapters...3 graphs due on Tuesday that I couldn't even figure out. And now I've got an oral presentation due on Monday and another test on Thursday.

On top of working 5/7 days of the week. So you know, the two days I have off I should use to study for these things, but usually I sit down to study and end up just falling asleep because I never ever ever get any sleep.

This is how my week usually looks:

Monday: Get up at 5, go to the gym, come home & get ready, classes from 9-12, and then the rest of the day I have off. (This is usually the beginning of my work weekend though because I am off on Mondays and Tuesdays for the most part) So I usually just relax, do a little studying, and maybe clean up a bit.
Tuesday: Get up at 6:30, classes from 8:30-4:45 [my longest school day everrrrrr. like, longer than high school. I've only got 3 classes that day though. Haha], get home anywhere between 5:15 & 6:30, and then I clean or do homework and then go to sleep earlyyyy.
Wednesday: Exactly the same as Monday, but I have to work from 5:30-10:30 (or so...)
Thursday: Get up at 7:30, go to the gym, come home & get ready, classes from 12:30-4:45, come home and study [HA...this is what I'd like to do on Thursdays. Instead, my job schedules me at 5:30 when I clearly will not be there on time, and then have to close. People don't realize that I have a life, so they sit in the restaurant for an hour after close, and then I come home (don't get to study) and go to bed at like 11:30-12:00 after whatever I've got to do at the end of my day.]
Friday: Get up at 5 (after working too late the night before...because you know, other employees are more important than me when I wake up at the same time as them...but that's apparently beside the point.), go to the gym, classes from 9-12, and then be at work again at 5:30. I close on Friday nights [I probably don't leave until around 12 sometimes], and then...
Saturday: Open at work at 10:45, work until about 9pm, come home & go to bed, and then close Sunday night, where the next morning I get up at 5.

I KNOW YOU WANTED TO KNOW THE BREAKDOWN OF MY DAY. So you're very welcome. :) In case you read it all and didn't give a shit...maybe you should have just skipped it. ;)

I'm not saying all this to complain, because I really need to quit complaining so much...but this is my place to vent, so I'm gonna do my thing. :D

Most people that see my blog are from my Facebook, and I'm pretty sure that most people on there know who Keely is. If not...you don't creep enough. LOL ....anyways though, I posted on her wall yesterday telling her what my Fitbit said (if you don't know what a Fitbit is, shame on you. ----> www.fitbit.com)

Daily Stats for 9/12/12:
Calories Burned: 3,146
Steps Taken: 18,341
Miles Traveled: 7.29
Floors Climbed: 27

I went to the gym, walked a good little bit at school, and then ran around at work last night for a long time, so my calorie burn and steps and miles were pretty high up there. They weren't so high today because I didn't stay at the gym long (I completely forgot to take my preworkout before the gym, so when I got there I did about 2 supersets before I was dying. I ended up doing 3 and that was it. [That's 3 sets of 6 exercises if you aren't aware] I didn't realize til I got home though, so then it didn't even matter), sat a lot at school today, and I took off tonight so I could work on some school stuff. So I sat at home.

I will post today's stats tomorrow, because they are finished yet!

Here are some screen shots from my fitbit account online:

Sleep patterns. The top one is from my sleep last night, and the bottom one is from my nap this morning after the gym.

Food. Don't judge my macros, I know they were awful today...LOL And I forgot to update my water before I took the screenshot, so don't yell at me for that either!

"Fitbit Dashboard". Daily Stats and calorie burn breakdown for the day. It's pretty cool. If you hover any give line on that chart, it will say "28 calories burned from 9:05 to 9:10". Each line is in 5 minute increments.

Sooooo, you can get one for $99 and free shipping, make an account, and we can be Fitbit friends! :D

Kaleb is yelling at me saying he needs to computer. Peace out homedogs. <3

Music Birdie and High Tops

I wish I had time to post a blog every day again. This time two years ago, about when I started this blog, I was so...not busy. I was taking like 16 hours in school, lived on campus, and was pledging TBS. That was my life.

Now, I'm taking 16 hours, living OFF campus (you wouldn't imagine how much of a difference that makes...they weren't lying when they said you'd do better living on campus), going to the gym, and working pretty much full time. It's really hard to be going to school full time and working full time. I wish I could just work like one day a week, but the little bit extra that I make working 5 or 6 days a week is really needed to pay the bills.

Yes, the gym only takes about an hour a day, but on top of going to the gym I have to eat healthy. (Which has NOT been happening lately...I mean, it has, I guess. I just haven't been doing as well as I usually do) I have to plan my meals ahead of time since I am always running. It's so easy to just stop by McDonald's or Zaxby's on the way to school or work, but I have realized this past week that I can't do that. It just makes me sick because I haven't eaten that stuff in so long. So then I go without eating because I can't get to anything healthy and that doesn't really help either. ANYWAYS, my point is...gym time & healthy eating takes up more time than you'd think because you have to plan and prepare the meals and food ahead of time so it is ready to go. That's why I usually cook up a lot of food on my day off and then put it in a container and take it with me when I go to school or work.

School is going well, like I said I'm taking 16 hours. Biology, Anthropology, English, Music Appreciation, and Psychology. Its a pretty good semester, but I'd love it even more if I wasn't taking that English class. :) It's too time consuming with a job. Ugh.

I'm ALMOST done with core though. I think just one more semester! I'll be TOO glad to be done with that. Now, I just have to make sure Rehab Science/Physical Therapy is what I want to do, because like I've said before, this is my third major, and I want to make sure I don't want to switch once I start my actual major classes. That would suuuuuuck!

Now that we've gotten past all that, I've decided to actually put some effort into my blog again, because it really does relieve stress. AND Google sent me a card for $100 worth of free advertising for my blog! Cool, hunh? :) Thanks Google! Now I just need to have something to advertise. ;)

Weight loss bit:

I have to have little goals to push myself a little harder, because as I'm sure you can see...I fall of the wagon a LOT. My long term goal is clearly to be about 16-18% body fat, and when I reach that (my original deadline was December 17, 2012, but who knows what it will be now?), I plan on getting my bird tattoo made of music symbols.

It will look something like this! :) I am getting it on my rib though, not on my wrist. I'm waiting until my goal because first of all, its an incentive, and second of all, I want something on my torso once I'm skinny...and when I can show it off. ;)

My short term goal for now is that when I reach the 120s I will buy myself my new tennis shoes. They're pretty expensive. I still can't decide if I want some Coach or Michael Kors high tops, or if I want some new Nikes...good thing I have some time to think about it. :D Haha I'm only 8 pounds away! So once I lose these 8 pounds...its goin' down. BAM!

Alright, I have class soon. I should go.
