mad just mad

I was having such a good morning today...until I got to work. I feel like at my job I am just not appreciated. I show up and do my best, I am friendly to my customers and my co-workers. But I think a lot of people mistake kindness for weakness. I felt better once I took a short brisk walk and writing this is helping me blow off steam. When I get mad I feel like crying and I get shakey. All I can say is that I will focus on school so I can get a better job. That's all I can do. And keep my head up and not let them get the best of me.

Studing hard pays off

I got an A in my Sociology class!!!!!! I'm so happy! Boy and I was stressing. Every instructor has a different set of guidelines. Some are hard and some are easy. Mrs. Russo was easy but of course I worried anyway. So next semester it's CHEM 101, BIO and Nutrition. Wish me luck!

Sunny and beautiful!

These past two days have been absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I stepped out of my house the sun was shining so bright I squintted my eyes. I didn't expect that, since we have had major June Gloom here in Long Beach! Sunny weather definately energizes me and I feel like taking a stroll or just plain being outdoors! There is a nice breeze which keeps things cool I don't mind it as long as it doesn't get too hot. YAY for summer!

Molly Ringwald's book

I want to read this book soooo bad. I wish I had the time read leisurely again. Oh well. I stumbled upon this book at Barnes and Noble yesterday and skimed through it and it looked really good. I just love Molly Ringwald. This book is about her life and also tips and advice, recipes and experiances on balancing friendship and family and still keeping beautiful.
She looks gorgeous in this pic! Okay I'm buying the book and reading it little by little!

I am disappointed that I got a B on my Sociology exam. I know I'm being hard on myself but I really wanted an A. I guess I'm more disappointed because I want it sooooo bad and I tried so hard. I've got to give myself a break because in the past I was just an "average C" student. When I do apply myself I do better though. So all I can do is study harder and do better next time! I think it's just a wake up call for me to do better and try to concentrate more.

11 pounds

Since I've had my braces on, which has been about 1 month I have officially lost 11 pounds! How do you ask? Not being able to eat all of the junk I used to eat! I actually took this opportunity to go on a liquid diet since I had a hard time chewing foods. I bought "Lean Shake" from GNC along with their "Women's Active" mulitviamins. Not to mention despite my mouth pain I still went to the gym before work. Here's my daily routine:
  • 6am-7am Gym (30-45 min Cardio the rest of the time stretching and weights)
  • 7:45 Lean Shake
  • 9:45 lowfat yogurt
  • 12:00pm Lean Shake
  • 2:30pm natural applesauce/small handfull of mixed nuts
  • 5:30pm 1 cup fresh squeezed juice (beets,carrots,strawberries,celery,oranges)/handfull of mixed nuts
  • 9:45pm light dinner (I know it's late but that's what time I get home from school)
Since I eat a little something every few hours I'm not starving! When I got on the scale last week I was stoked! I'm gonna keep at it!
