I fell asleep almost immediately last night, but when the dog woke me up at 6 am, I felt as if I did not sleep at all. :( Church was great though and then after church I went with Aimee to visit her grandparents. After that we went to dinner with her uncle where I laughed almost nonstop! Church tonight was great too and then we went to our pastors house for a fire. I finally got home and hurried downstairs to do Day 9 and as I'm just barely starting, I tweaked something in my knee and decided to try and push throu it, but within a couple minutes, I realized I had to stop because I need to be good for tomorrow's softball games. So, instead, I am sleeping in my workout clothes in hopes of waking up early to workout and shower before work and then I'll do Day 10 after softball tomorrow night. Sorry this is short, but I need sleep before my really long day tomorrow...which starts in 5 1/2 hrs lol

I don't remember my meals for Thursday and Friday, but here are today's
Breakfast: 8 strawberries, 1 banana, some pineapple, some canteloup, some melon, 2 cinnamon roll type pastries
Lunch: Grilled Chicken Salad with raspberry vinagriette dressing and one bite of a not-so-yummy cupcake (I make cupcakes all the time so whenever I have the opportunity to try someone elses cupcakes, I like to at least try a bite so I can compare. lol)
Dinner: 4 strawberries, 1 apple, 2 pieces of Pampered Chef BBQ Chicken/Red Onion Pizza and 1 receses pieces chocolate fudge brownie
Well, because of SparkPeople being down Thursday night, I was unable to post my blog from Thursday and I didn't have access to a computer yesterday so I was unable to post yesterday too. When I got up Thursday, I knew I was going to have a really long day, so I did my 30 Day Shred first thing in the morning before anything else. After that, I put my new bathing suit on and laid out by the pool for about 30-45 minutes reading my book. Then I went to work at the Bridal Shop for 4 hrs. It's always fun seeing the high school guys gettied all gussied up since it's not an every day thing. But that day, I also got to meet a really cute Groomsman who had come in to try on his tux for his friends wedding. He didn't have a ring on his finger, which I know means nothing now-a-days, but still, and he was definitely flirting. It made me smile, not just because he was cute and flirting, but because I had gone out for lunch by myself before work and I had a couple guys checking me out there too. I was feeling pretty good Thursday. Anyways, after work, I went to my dad and brother's softball games before I had to leave early to go babysit. I began babysitting at 8 and by 9, all four kids were asleep. So, I spent the next two and a half hours reading my book and watching the Tigers game, which they lost horribly. :( Friday, I was hoping to get up early to workout, but because I didn't get home till after midnight, that did not happen. Since I began dogsitting for someone on Friday, I was planning on going straight from work with the babies to dogsitting. While at work, I didn't get to take the babies outside at all because their dad was doing yard work, so we stayed inside playing. They were more content without playing with me though, so I stayed close watching them and reading my book at the same time. They have days sometimes where they don't want me to play with them, but they also won't let me do anything other than sit and watch them. lol Well, I got out of work early so I ended up meeting Aimee and Ashley at Starbucks for a little bit. After that, they came over to the house I was dogsitting at so Aimee could do laundry and I could let the dog out. Then they went to Target with me to get a baby shower gift I was needing for today. After Target, I went to Ashley's soccer game and then went back to the house with Aimee where we decided to go to Big Boy for dinner and dessert. We decided to split a dessert and it was the biggest mistake ever. It was good, but even though we couldn't finish it between the two of us, we both still felt like throwing up after. Biggest mistake ever! We both managed to get back to our homes without losing it, but I spent the rest of the night holding it down...I probably should have just thrown up, though, I would have felt better. I hadn't done my Jillian Michael's yet, but I knew I would have definitely thrown up if I did it that late after eating that dessert, so I decided I would do it two times today. Since I was still trying to hold down my food, I decided to read some more of my book before going to bed and about 2am this morning, my book was finished and I knew I was going to be tired when the dog woke me up before my alarm. That brings me to today. The dog did in fact wake me up early...5 AM!!!! I let it out and back in and by 6:30, it was barking at me to let it out again, so instead I kicked it out of my bedroom and went back to sleep. When I finally got up at 9, she was still barking and whining so I went to let her out and she wasn't going out! Stupid dog. I pushed her outside anyways since it was so nice out and I was annoyed with her whining. After I put her out, I went downstairs to do my first round of Jillian Michaels for the day. After finishing that, I drove home to shower and get cleaned up for the busy day ahead. At 11am, I had a bridal shower, at 1pm, I had a baby shower and at 5pm, I had a Pampered Chef party. After finally getting back to the house, I did round two of Jillian Michael's for the day and now I am totally ready for bed. I'm exhausted! Tomorrow should be an easier day as it's a church day and it's supposed to be GORGEOUS out! So, I'm heading to bed early and looking forward to a good day tomorrow! :)

This morning when I got up, it was already 70 degrees so I decided I was going to take advantage of my day off until I hung out with my friend Ashley and I was going to workout outside and read my book in the sun. Well, i got my workout in and then took my shower. I don't know if this is the same for everyone else, but I do some of my best thinking when I'm in the shower. S I spent my time thinking and praying. I applied for this teaching job and I keep hearing things a month after I should have heard and it is getting frustrating. I'm trusting God, but I'm not sure if he wants me looking into other job opportunities while I wait either. So, I was remembering a conversation I had recently with a friend about the time he spent teaching in Saipan. So, I talked with him again about it and he was going to email the principal.mwell, while I was showering and praying, I was asking God to just show me what to do. If he doesn't want me to do this Kindergarten job, en I asked for him to slam the door in my face...and hard. I have just had so many questions about it that I need God to make it so clear to me. Well, I got out of the shower and about 3 minutes later, my phone was ringing. It was the pastor at the school. He said the board decided they are definitely going to have the kindergarten program and so I have to become an associate member of the church, which pretty much means nothing, but the school requires it. I don't have to give up my church membership or even attend their services, it's just something that needs to be done for paper purposes. By immediately following the quick mtg to become an associate member, I will meet with them to talk about money. They have yet to say to me how much I would be making. I'm trying to trust God, it is just so hard sometimes! They kept telling me they're a small school, they don't have much money. So my question is, is the amount they pay me going to cover gas money? If it won't cover gas money, will it be enough to get an apartment or something on that side of town? It's currently a 25 minute drive. On top of those things, will it cover my bills? Will it give me enough money to get health insurance if they don't provide it? There are justo many uncertainties still. ANYWAYS....After I got off the phone, Ashley texted me that worked called and they needed her to go in, so that cancelled my plans for the day. So, I decided to grab a towel, my sunglasses, my book, a camera, some water and some almonds and head to the nature preserve for a couple hours of sun and relaxation. (I'm rather enjoying this week of relaxing!) so I found a nice "quiet" spot on an observation deck that had 360* view of God's creation. I say "quiet" because I heard birds and other sounds the entire time. :) I spent about 2-3 hrs their reading and enjoying the sights and sounds...and getting mosquito bite and a slight sunburn. After I could feel my neck was getting burnt, I decided it was time to head home and I decided to do pancakes,eggs and bacon for the family for dinner. When mom got home though, she told me dad was planning something different. So, we went through the Arby's drive-thru on our way to my 9 yr old cousin Jacob's first baseball game of the summer. Do you know that a JR ROAST BEEF is 330 calories! Holy crap! I can't even really find a website that says how many my turkey sandwich was, but I can tell you it wasn't very tasty or very filling. But I wasn't the one paying so I couldn't say I'd have preferred something else. :/ We were only able to watch a couple innings of the game before we had to leave to go to church. But of course, right after we got to church, I got a text saying Jacob hit a 2 run double and then scored very next batter! His team won 4-1!!! Church was good, different than what we've ever done before, but good. After church I did my Jillian Michaels Day 5 and am now doing this! Tonight's JM workout though was really good as I didn't have to do hardly any of the modified moves! I'm actually looking forward to doing it tomorrow. I was pretty bad today with my eating but it's my own fault. I didn't eat breakfast til rather late, then I only brought the almonds with me to the nature preserve and by the time I got home, I was starving, but it was so close to dinner that I didn't want to eat anything "big". So instead, I ate a lot of small not-so-healthy things. That is the biggest thing I need to continue to work on. My eating.

Breakfast: mango/banana smoothie made with fresh fruits & pineapple Greek yogurt and a spiced chai
Snack: banana, cucumber and 10 lightly salted almonds
Lunch: hamburger with ketchup, cucumber
Snack: 100 calorie all natural fruit blend and an apple with some peanut butter
Dinner: shrimp and scallops in a light olive oil pasta, salad and bread. The meal was under 550 calories!
I also snacked on a Hershey's air delight chocolate bar throughout the day
Work today started off really long. Jaxon and Malia both woke up very congested, coughing a lot and sneezing. When they went down for their first nap, it was maybe 30 minutes in when I heard Jaxon coughing, sounding like he was choking. Well, he was choking on flem. :( Before I could get to I'm, he had thrown up all over his crib. :( He didn't go back to sleep. When it came time for the second nap of the day, which should have been a long one since neither of them slept hardly at all during the first one, they slept for MAYBE 30 minutes, if that! They were very whiny and unhappy today, but I can understand considering how congested they were. It eventually warmed up enough, and the wind died down enough, that I decided to take them outside to play on their new slide. They had so much fun! Shortly after that I got to go home early where I sat down to talk with my mom and suddenly got really tired and took an impromptu nap.lol I got woken up to mom and dad asking if I was ready to get dinner. I didn't know they were planning on me since I have Zumba on Tuesdays, but I figured I should have time to eat and digest enough that it wouldn't bother me. I was wrong. We got to the restaurant and had to wait 30min to get seated and then it seemed as if our waitress kept forgetting about us. But, it's an Italian restaurant my mom loves going to, but I struggle to find good choices. I don't like spaghetti sauce so pasta is usually not what I get when we go there. But they had some new items that were on an "Under 550 calorie" menu so I tried one of those. It was delicious, but I felt it all throughout Zumba. Zumba was also difficult because of my quad still being sore, but I still did the best I could and broke a sweat. I was owing to go play volleyball afterwards, but I found out that the lady who heads up the open volleyball had a mild stroke today so it was cancelled tonight. Her name is Rosie,so if you could keep her in your prayers, that would be much appreciated! So, since I wasn't doing volleyball, I just went home. I watched NCIS : LA with my family and then I did Day 4 of the 30 Day Shred. I was quite sore today, but my muscles had tightened up quite a bit from sitting for over an hour after Zumba. But I did it and now I'm icing while I type this out! Thankfully I don't have to work tomorrow so I can take it easy until I do Day 5, and maybe, possibly go swimming tomorrow night? I don't know, I want to, but the pool is always crowded with kids playing games not letting me actually swim. We'll see how active I am at church to or row night since I'm helping out this month with the summer kids activities. Oh well, tomorrow we will see what will come about!

When I woke up this morning, I impatiently waited for the temperature to rise some so I could go for a run. Once it finally did, I ran 3 miles, the last one a little slow due to some tightness. After my run, I got ready and went to meet Aimee for lunch and then went to work a couple hours at a local bridal shop. After work I went to the chiropractor to get a quick adjustment before tonight's softball games, hung out with Aimee for a half hour and then went to softball. My first at bat, I hit the ball and with my first step towards first base, I pulled my quad. :( I couldn't even make it to 1st base before I had to hop off to the side. So, coach took me out until I told him I was good. After icing and stretching, I got it loose enough to go up for my next at bat, thankfully we had enough players to cover me in outfield. Although I only made it on base once tonight, I take it as a major accomplishment considering I couldn't really run...and then I took a runner. Lol When I got home, I said I needed to ice my leg and my mom suggested a hot shower and then ice...instead I made dinner, did Day 3 of the 30 Day Shred, slightly painful but I did it, and then took a shower. I probably should be icing it right now while I'm typing this, but I'm a bit too tired to go to the kitchen to get some ice...and I'm ready to go to bed anyways. So, hopefully it will feel a little bit better tomorrow and I won't have to ice it too much. Overall today was a great day though! I ran 3 miles, played 2:30 softball and got my butt kicked by Jillian Michael's for 20 minutes! :)
