On Saturday I drove to the mall in Raleigh, walked in to the Apple store, applied for their financing card, and bought my computer. I got a couple hundred dollars off the original price between educator discount and some other things they have going on right now. I have over half of the money in my savings account for the machine right now, and I have 1 year interest free to pay it off. Between my two supplement checks at work, and my tax return, I can easily pay it off. Plus, it’s tax deductible because I will absolutely use it for the photography business. I am in love with this computer. Absolutely and completely. Last night I made my own ringtones for my phone!! It took 2 minutes, and they work! My default ringtone is now ‘The Medow” from the Twilight series. Wahoo.
I am back on track with weight watchers. For the last year or so I’ve not tracked or done too much. I have maintained my loss, which is one of the hardest parts of losing weight. While I’m proud of that, I know that I want to lose another 30-35 pounds. I know it won’t come off overnight, but I’m ready to work at it. My friend Tracey has been so incredibly supportive and referred me to MyFitnessPal. While I don’t count calories, the website is free and does provide me with a food journal and an Ap for my iPhone so I can add entries to it on the go. This helps me stay accountable all day long and not “forget” that I ate something. It also tracks exercise and calculates how many calories you burned. Right now my biggest struggle is eating all my points in the day. I struggled with this way back at the beginning of WW, and it’s just a matter of planning ahead and eating good points.
Things with Brandyn are going really well. I’m feeling kind of bummed because I am so busy that our time together is kind of limited. He tells me not to worry and that it is a-OK… but I still feel a little guilty that I am so insanely busy. It makes me a little disappointed in myself that some weeks the only time we see each other is when he comes to a barrel race with me while I work!
