I love Monday when....

it is the Monday of Spring Break week!!!! Yet, at 830 guess who was wide awake and ready to tackle the day?  This girl!!! 

I am linking up with Jenn and Jessica for 5 for Five  again this week.  Don't judge me please. I did horrible. 

(5 for Five)

 Here is a recap of my last week...
Green means Accomplish.... Red mean Boo I failed and Purple means... I sort of started!!

Last Weeks Goals:

1. Go to Spin Class.What is wrong with me? The one day I planned on going, I went to play tennis with my mom.  

2. Run 3 days!!! NOT ONE DAY.  SERIOUSLY?!?!?! 

3. Go see some Camel and Ostrich Races. Planned on it 100%. We went to dinner first and that took forever so we decided to not rush dinner and enjoy ourselves. 

4. Relax. I did pretty decent with this one.  I found out my results and I feel like I am on the right path. 

5. Take clothes to woman's Shelter. yep, didn't happen. 

1/5 is horrible. I can't believe I did that bad. This week will be so much better, I promise! 

This weeks goals: 

1. Run 3 days. I am on spring break, No excuse. Get off your butt and go run. 

2. Take my clothes and Anthony's to the woman's shelter. Anthony cleaned out some clothes in his closet and I told him I would take them to the shelter for him.

3. Finish the current book I am reading. I am reading Drinking and Twitting. It is pretty funny. It is a nice and easy read. Which I like.

4. Take my medicine every day. This is probably going to be the hardest thing! 

5. Finish Anthony's bathroom. This past weekend, we did some remodeling of his bathroom. I need to finish the decoration part.

Its Spring Break Friday!!!

Not only is it Friday, It is Spring Break Friday :) 

I am linking up with Jeanett @ LifeRearranged for Insta-(spring break)Friday. Hope you enjoy!!

Rodeo Passes!!!! My coworker is nice enough to let me borrow his parking pass and badge to go see the concerts.  So far I have gotten to see Lady Antebellum and Zac Brown Band. They were both awesome. I just love the Houston Live Stock and Rodeo!
 Anthony and I are re-doing his master bathroom this weekend/next week. These are the two colors that we have chosen to paint. I am strangely really excited about this little project.
 The Ju Ju. She decided to use my knee as a mini pillow. She was fast asleep and snoring. She must have had a crazy busy day.

 This was taken from the Lady Antebellum concert. I went with a good friend of mine. It was pretty dang cool!! Has anyone else seen Lady Antebellum?

 I have decided to start taking a multi-vitamin along with my new thyroid medicine. Anyone else taking a Multi-Vitamin? if so, which one?

I stole this picture off Pinterest. Go Figure. It is what I want to do for the towel rack in Anthony's bathroom this weekend. I think it looks perfect!! 

One of  my meals I made for dinner this week. Grilled chicken, pasta salad and asparagus  It was super yummy.  I even had enough left overs for lunch the next day.
 My new EC notebook!! I love it :) I wish I had ordered it much sooner. If you don't have an EC notebook, or any of her products please please go buy something!
 Anthony and I went to Sea World over the past weekend. This was one of the beautiful penguins that we saw.
Along with the having an awesome trip to Sea World with Anthony, I got to chaperon the 9th grade class to the Zoo on Tuesday. The Zoo instead of work. Done!!!  

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

Sometimes there is just something not right

This is a fairly long post, just a warning!

I went back to the doctor today to get my blood work results. Let me start off by saying that when I called to get the results, I was told that I needed to come back and meet with the doctor. I freaked out. Not just a little, but I had a mini panic attack. I even called my mom crying.

Let me back up by saying that I have been struggling with my weight for a long time. This past couple months have been harder than ever. I gained roughly 15 lbs over the Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas time. I made a change with my eating and working out in January. I have not lost a pound. NOTHING. ( I know that muscle weighs more than fat yadda yadda, but seriously not a lb??)  My bestie told me I needed to go get my blood work done. I remember standing in my parents kitchen crying because I was to scared to get it done. I was afraid something was wrong. (Denial is so much easier in my mind). But I sucked it up and went to get it done. Fast forward to the nurse telling me I needed to come in for the doctor to go over the blood work results with me, I was a mess. The re-assured me that it wasn't anything major or else the doctor would have called me several days prior and would have had me come in ASAP.

When I finally got to the room to see the doctor, I had my notebook (my lovely new EC notebook that I just got) all out and ready. Results showed 2 different things. My triglycerides and LDL's are a little high. Both of those run high on my dads side of the family and are fairly easy to take care of. The bigger problem is my thyroid. My free T3 and my free T4 are pretty low, which is an indicator for hypothyroidism.  After going over several options, we decided to try putting me on a hypothyroidism medicine for 3 months.  After 3 months, I will go get blood work done and see if the numbers have risen a bit.

Once I got back to work, I started to do a little more research. I had learned about hypothyroidism in college but that seems like forever ago. Insert WebMD. Probably one of the best AND worst websites out there. People can go on it and end up thinking they have some type of cancer. But to just learn about something, it is very informative.  I learned that some of the stuff that I thought was just "normal" was actually a symptom. I wont bore you with the details. I just think its interesting.

This explains alot for me, but I am very glad I went to get the blood work done. It is nice to know that my hard work isn't just not good enough, that there is actually a reason I am not losing any weight.  I am hoping that taking the medicine will help, and I can see some changes.  Besides those two things, the doctor said I was nice and healthy. Yay!!

Hope ya'll have a great day.

6 Things

Let try something different. One of of the blogs I found, a person was doing a 5 thing tag up. I changed it to 6.  6 things, 6 random things. I made the change because 5 is a pretty normal number. I wanted to do 6 because its just one extra thing you have to think of!  They can be anything you want. I write them, then tag people. Those people continue the tagging situation.

1. I love Nutella.  It is a sad obsession  I can eat it by the multiple spoonfuls. I don't put it on bread or anything else. I eat it like people eat peanut butter. Which makes it semi normal right?

2. I treat my cat like she is human sometimes. I worry about her feelings and talk to her. Whenever I leave  my apartment I also tell her " Bye Blue, I love you, Kisses". If someone is with me, then I just whisper it or mouth it. I feel like, even then she will know I said it.  I have even gone out and spent over $50 on a bird feeder just for her. A bird feeder... for the cat... to be entertained.

3. I love to send cards, post cards, little notes. My best friend used to leave me notes in college and I loved getting  them. So now I try to send them out as well.

4. I hate SPAM email. I think its creepy that someone has my email address and sends me mail. I want to report them all. But lets be honest, You can't.

5. This one, most people know about me. I worry WAY to much. I always thought my mom worried a whole bunch and it irritated me. I am just as bad as her. I get to the point where I cry because I am so worried. I cry at a lot of things anyways, but its bad that I cry when I am so worried. I get a really bad feeling in the pit of my stomach, and its hard for me to shake it off.

6. I love keys and peacocks. I have this gorgeous "Key and Quote" wall at the apartment. I have been trying to find new and interesting keys to put on it. Peacocks- I went to the ranch a couple months ago, and they had some gorgeous ones there. I have always loved the coloring on them, and want to do more with peacocks. Erin Condren has a peacock note cards and key note cards that I really want to buy, but they are a little out of my price range. Maybe I'll buy them in a couple months, or will ask for them for Easter. (yes my parents still give me an Easter basket. I also like to give them to other people. )

4. Relax. My blood work came back. The doctor wants to see me. Now I am freaking out about it. I hope nothing is really bad. :( 

5. Take clothes to woman's Shelter.  I have 3 big bags that need to go.
