Today turned out.. good? interesting?

Thursday, April 29, 2010

What an odd day which turns out to be pretty... good.

I planned to get up really early (for me) at 8 am.. (rise and shine emoticon) but than when my alarm went off, I thought, "It is probably emoticon and icky out." and decided to sleep in until 9:30 am. Yes, kinda lazy today.

So, anyways, I took the long way to campus meaning instead of having half a mile walk, I emoticona little under three miles to get there. On the way there, I called my parents and my mom told me that my check came in. emoticon

I got to work and now I don't feel good. I knew it was because I haven't ate enough. I get light headed, nauseaus, and a headache, sometimes when I need to eat instead of my stomach growling. So.. I had no money with me and forgot to bring emoticon. Someone had an extra slim fast so I had that. Let me tell you I found it emoticon (disgusting) but it was calories which is what I needed.

After work, I went on the emoticon than I lifted emoticon. When I got back to the locker room, my muscles were trembling. This has happened once before.. and apparently I exhausted my muscles. Do you think this is a good or bad thing? Did I have a good weight lifting work out?

Than, as I was waiting around to go to work again, I was playing on the emoticon which consisted of bouncing between Sparkpeople, Facebook, and my email..

I got an email saying I won the VP Social Programming position at the Residence Hall Association on campus. I was kinda surprised.. because I did not really think I was going to get it. Let me explain.

Last night I was working the front desk in where people come and vote. There was a person I knew in the VP Social Programming position and the VP Public Relations in which he was the only to vote for. I figured he couldn't hold both positions. So, when people came to vote and mentioned they didn't know anyone, I told them they could write me in for the VP Social Programming since they knew me.

I thought it would be fun and a great way to meet people. It was a spur of the moment thing. I didn't really think I would get it because I would be getting maybe 15 votes to his 300-some votes. It is kind of a no-brainer, I thought. emoticon If I got it, I got it...but I got it now.. so now what do I do?

I, of course, accepted.. but now I am nervous about it - what did I do? There is a meeting tomorrow morning at 7 am (no more sleeping in for me, I guess) that is highly encouraged.. than the week after that is when I think my position starts because that meeting is mandotary. Eek! emoticon

I find it ironic that next year, I will be all about Residence Life, and being part of campus. I will be carrying 16 credits emoticon, working a PT job, being a Week of Welcome Team Leader (Freshman Orientation Leader) at the beginning of the school year, and being the VP of Social Programming for RHA for the full year. emoticon emoticon emoticon

(Sorry for the longer blog.. but I sure an odd day, as I mentioned before!)

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I almost forgot!!!

Tomorrow is my weigh in.. and I am a bit nervous about that, too. At this point, you would think I am a Nervous Nelly, lol! I think it will be good and should have lost 4# (the same amount as last time).

I have burned about the same amount of calories, and went out to eat the same about times (but with less calories). [Yes, I know I am not supposed to be going out to eat. I figure I can have 3 strikes or you are out.. kind of thing.] I have weight trained three times versus just two times last time.

In addition to that, people have been commenting about my weight and asking if I lost. emoticonIt is hard to answer if you have lost weight when you only weigh yourself every 10 days.. emoticon. I just assumed I have.. considering I am fitting into size 16 and 18 pants which wasn't happening a few weeks ago... but in my head, I was like: "Um, I guess so."

My reward for this weigh in, no matter the weight, is that I get a pair of new jeans size 16, hopefully! At the same time, I don't want to buy some expensive pair just for them to not fit in 3-4 weeks. emoticon

So.. I think I am going to have a scavendor hunt on Saturday if my friends don't go shopping on Friday with me. With this scavendor hunt, I am going to go to Goodwill and Plato's Closet.. and if I don't find something that I absolutely fall in emoticon with than I think I will adventure over to Old Navy and find something in their clearance rack. I have had to tell myself NO! like 3 times this week .. and to wait until Friday to get them.

Guess what?!!! Tomorrow IS Friday! emoticon
