Happy Sunday

I'm up, breakfast has been eaten (egg beaters, mushroom, broccoli and mozzarella omelet w/ veggie sausage) and I am sitting here drinking my coffee while watching Mike Holmes on HGTV.  Mike makes me want to drywall.  I think building houses is very similar to math.  There really is only one right way to do it.  If you work the formula you get the right result.

My weigh in with Allan has been sent.  It is a good loss and considering the really hard week that I've had it is a tremendous victory in the war against the fat.  Even though my own body betrayed me and craved heavy carbs like an addict craves crack I did not take up permanent residence inside of my refrigerator.  I dug deep and toughed it out.  I feel proud.

I'm a bit tired this morning as my upstairs neighbor was engaging in some night time activities last night until well past midnight.  Thus I have been debating whether or not to get dressed and go to church.  I'm going to go because anytime I even think about not going and then go the message I receive is something I've really needed to hear.  And I enjoy hanging out with my friend Angella.

Last night I downloaded my community college transcript and measured it against what I still need to take before I transfer to the University of Houston.  I was shocked to learn that I only have to take 6 or 7 more classes and then I am ready.  So instead of waiting until the Summer semester I plan on enrolling in the Spring Second Start semester that starts next month and knocking out 3-4 classes.  If I do that then I can finish up during the summer and transfer to UH in the fall (instead of Spring 2012).  I only have to take one relatively hard class - Plane Trigonometry - and the rest are easy classes like Digital Art, Geography and Environmental Science.  The really cool thing about the rest of the courses in my chosen degree is that because I have so much experience in my career working in the field the computer science courses at UH are going to be an absolute breeze.  I'm also thinking about declaring a minor in political science or history.

The NFL playoffs are a bit anticlimactic because does anyone really believe that it won't end with a New England Super Bowl win?

I hope everyone has a pleasant Sunday and enjoy what is left of the weekend.

Have a good Sunday, Kimberly. You are lucky to have a church where you can enjoy the services. Our last few experiences with churches here were so bad that we opted to do our worshiping at home. I miss the ladies groups but before we left it had mostly become more of a gossip class than a ladies class. I would love to find a good church but I think my husband has given up. I don't drive anymore and so I can't go if he doesn't.

I had to laugh when I read about Mike Holmes. We're the same way - watching his show inspires us to plan on how we're going to improve our home.

Grats on toughing out the carb cravings! It's one of the hardest things for me to do too. :)

Congratulations on the weigh in. Mine was less than stellar but I shared the carb cravings with you. Must be something in the air.

YAY, only 6 or 7 more classes. You go, girl. I think when the kids get older I'd like to go back to school.

Have a great Sunday. It's nasty drizzly outside but I have a run scheduled.

Yay. You fought off the bad, bad cravings. So proud of you, you SHMART LADY! We continue the battle....another week...

Watching Mike doesn't make me want to drywall. It makes me want to throw him up against some drywall...

*Did I just say that?* *evil grin*

Congratulations on your weight loss, this week, girl. :D

Mike Holmes make me want to bust walls out and remodel my entire house! It's a bit dangerous to watch! :)

Way to go on the weight loss!

Well done with sticking it out through a low week and especially one that was craving-ridden. Guess you survived the Girl Scout cookies!

How very exciting about the classes and the credits. you go for it.

I am chiming in a little late, but I never believed the SB would end in a Pats win....Packers all the way, baby!

Congrats on the hard fought weigh in. I had a rough weekend too...and I don't think I did as well as you did.
