I have to let it go

So I am working to lose weight and I  think I may have to let go of a few things for a while. 

1) Cheese
This is going to be a tuffy.  I'm a cheese addict.  In fact my aunt used to make me my own mac-n-cheese during the holidays because I loved it so much.  I know I could just use low fat our mozzarella cheese. But I have a confession to make...I can be an excessive person.  So that combined with my love of cheese means I have to cut it out to tame the craving.  (It's so good though)

2)  Chocolate
Once again I am a fiend.  But my oh my...chocolate is one delicious substance. I love everything about it.  I've cut it out of my food menu before.  But until I'm able to control the cravings I'm a mess. Lol

3)  Whipped Cream
Things like Hot Chocolate taste so much better with whipped cream but unnecessary calories come along with it.  So I order my coffees without it.  This wasn't a hard thing to do though.  Occasionally I'll order it but 9 times out of 10 I'll leave it out.

Lets see...what else?  You won't see
my Starbucks coffee on here.  I'm sure my brother will have lots to say about that. Lol.  Miracle Whip & mayo should probably be included in this but...not just yet.  I'm still training D

We'll see what other things I need to add as time goes on.


BTW: one of my goals is to go as Catwoman for Halloween. Lol

Faux hawk

I like it.  Currently I am participating in a K.I.S.S. Challenge. We must wear protective styles until Dec. 31st but we can wear our hair out on the weekend.  Hopefully this will help me each APL and start there as I transition.

Enjoy the pic!

UPDATES, updates, UpDaTeS

Boy oh boy have things gotten busy these last couple of weeks.  It's been a lot of school, school, school.   Nevertheless, I've got some good news to report.   I got a B on my test in Human Physio (don't worry I will get a HARDCORE A on the next test) and an A on my Pharmacology test!  You don't know how happy I was to see those grades.  I wasn't so sure about Human Physio but the Lord pulled me through.  Next up is my Social and Behavioral Aspects of Public Health exam.  I don't think that will be too difficult.  The design of the course and the information is similar to that of Women's Studies, it's all repeated information.  Plus the exam is in essay format.  So I plan to analyze the topic and pull out a few quotes, and everything should be good. 

Enough about that class...I haven't been able to train for my leisure class as I would like but I have been able to make it to the kickboxing class, and let me tell instructor tried to kill us LMBO (not literally ppl.).  He had us working and sweating.  I could have sworn we were in the midst of a P90X instructional taping.  Unfortunately, I punked out on a couple of the exercises.  Those crossover push-ups were a bit much.  I plan to work on my strength training though.  I also ordered some of my equipment and tapes to help me improve my form and technique.   I am so ready to begin them too.

Let's see, what else has been going on??? Oh, Sweetest Day was yesterday.  I would see that my husband and I had a great little celebration.  We really didn't do much but we did get a XBOX Kinect!!!!!!! YES :)  I put the smackdown on my family in Wipe Out.  Well, not really.  I only won one game and my nephew won the second game.  But it was fun watching my brother attempt to get his avatar to work properly. 

That's pretty much it for me.  I have to get back to this Epidemiology.  I have a quiz to take before the night is over :(  Oh June you can't get here soon enough.  I am so READY to begin my life as a med student!!!!  But until then....
