I woke up, read my Bible, and spent the day organizing everything I own! Now, everything in the apartment is neat and organized except for the piles of stuff on my fold up table and my desk! I’m hoping to get the those tomorrow before Shelby comes over, but first I’ll have to do the dishes and toss out all this cardboard from breaking down boxes! I watched Boy Meets World while doing most of it.

I did take a break for a few hours to go watch the kids. We ate popcorn and chocolate and watched Wonder. I’m gonna have to rewatch it because a few parts were lost on me as watching a movie with kids is difficult! They were mostly very well behaved though. I’m proud of them! πŸ™‚

I woke up and went for a walk with Ciara before chatting for a little while. Then, I went to Walmart, Target, and the mall to find an ID holder. I found three, but only one doubles as a change purse! I would have liked to have options, but I’m really glad my only option was the little mermaid! πŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Then, I went to Nanny’s house to celebrate the February birthdays/spring break. We ate pizza (GF for me of course),salad, & I had a small serving of Mac & Cheese. When I came home, I continued my spring cleaning/organizing. My room actually has space! When I’m done in the living room, the whole apartment will look brand new! And that’s mostly just from breaking down cardboard boxes! It’s true, I am a hoarder! I’m working on breaking that though! I bagged up shoes that don’t fit/I can wear because of heels and a few clothes. I’m getting rid of odds and ends I don’t need/use. And I’m trying to put everything in its place so that when I move (hopefully in October when our lease is up) I won’t have to work so hard to pack/organize everything! I didn’t read my Bible today, but I did listen to Jeremy Camp and I did read the verse of the day, so all was not lost. I’ve been told the electrician WILL be here tomorrow or Friday, so I really hope it’s true this time! I’d rather it be tomorrow, but idc as long as the lights stay on and we’re safe from potential electric damage until he comes. I might FaceTime Holly tomorrow! And Shelby is for sure coming over Friday evening! We’re gonna color in our coloring books because we truly are five! πŸ˜‚

Today, I woke up, read my Bible, and read The Five Love Languages.

Then, I walked for 2.5 hours for a total of 7.5 miles! After that, I studying calories deficits to see how much is too much and what is healthy for me. I learned that if I subtract 15-25% of my initial calorie intake, then I’m set whether I work out or not. I also figured out that if I want to burn as many calories every week as I did in high school, then I need to walk for at least 1 hour 5 days a week, ideally 2.5 hours 5 days a week, or if I want to lose the weight the fastest then 3.5 hours 5 days a week! 2.5 was pushing it today! Idk if I’d be able to do 3.5! Sure would be nice to lose my 50 lbs as soon as possible though so I can focus more on maintaining my weight than losing weight!

I finally have all the approvals I need to publish The Mask; Her Aid! Now, I just need to read through it to make sure I’m saying what I want to say. Next, Shelby will read/edit it for me! Then, I’ll publish it! It may be published by the end of the week, but for sure the end of the month!

I woke up and went to church. We started a series called Rethinking Church. Then, I served in Youth. When I came home, I wrote a song called “Safe Place.” Then, I went to Nanny’s and mostly sat there doing nothing and watching Fixer Upper before it got turned to 60 Minutes. I picked up Simon and Nehemiah from church, then went to Walmart to buy a safety vest for walking, a backpack for walking, and water bottles. I decided if I couldn’t find a bag for less than $20, then it wasn’t worth it right now. I found one for $10! 😁 Instead of buying one safety vest for $10, I bought two large muscle shirts for men for $3 each! Being unemployed has really helped me to figure out how to save money. I’m hoping this will continue when I get a job again!

March 9, 2018

I woke to the electricity going out again. πŸ˜’

When I woke up from my “nap” after waiting for it to be fixed, I read my Bible, The Five Love Languages, and ate Quinoa and Spinach.

Then, I walked the girls home, but Lydia walked back to the apartment with me and we watched Rip Tide. We decided to stop at the EZ Shop and I finally found the Gatorade bottle I’ve been looking for for months!

I came home and started writing another MG scene, but didn’t get to finish it, because I finally got to the “it’s a long walk to Pittsburgh” episodes of Boy Meets World! Then, I decided to download a bunch of nutrition/calorie counting apps to see which one I like more.

At 10 or so, someone on the third floor starting having a really obnoxious party, so I called the none emergency cops πŸš“ to come stop it at midnight! Then I tweeted about it! πŸ€“ Maybe I’ve watched too much #BuffyTheVampireSlayer, but someone on the 3rd floor is having what sounds like a frat party w/ chanting. It’s super obnoxious & I think I might be sacrificed to a demon snake soon! πŸ˜³πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ Or my deepest fears are about to become reality. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

March 8, 2018

I woke up, read my Bible, read the first chapter ofΒ The Five Love Languages: Singles Edition and ate. Then, I had my phone interview with Farm Bureau Bank and in-person interview with Aflac. Both interviews went well and I’m moving on to the next step for each of them. I think I’ll go with Aflac if I have to choose, but Idk yet.

Then, I came home, walked Lydia and Naomi home and went grocery shopping. I’m gonna try to eat the same amount of calories I ate in high school and work out at least 9 hours a week like in high school. I figure, if I want to look like I did in high school, then it might help to act like I’m in high school. That’s only 1.5 hours of working out a day. Considering at least a half hour of practice was just me standing around at the back of the court and most of the games were me just sitting on the bench, I figure if I actively walk 9 hours a week, then I’ll burn at least as many calories as I did in high school. Idk. We’ll see.

Tonight, I wrote the final word forΒ The Mask; Her Aid. Now, I just have to get Lauri, Kristi, Nancy, and Grace to approve their chapters and I’ll be ready for the final editing which should only take a few hours and then I’ll be ready to publish! I’m feeling all the feels right now!
