I am a very silly person and I missed what you had written in white - my complete and sincere condolences to you. Pixelated hugs.
I hear you on toxic schedules. What generally happens to me is that I have difficulty saying "no", and that is something I'll be working on for all of my life, I think. My schedule also just seems to "peak" at certain times of the year where all I can do is basically hang on for the ride. I struggle with procrastination. I also adore my students, and I probably do a little too much for them (they're college students - finding the balance of 'I'm here to help you' and 'I'm not your mother' is hard for me!). I end up putting myself last. Being here has been the only thing that's ever helped me with that!
The wedding was fabulous, thanks for asking!! I'm about to pop up a bunch of pics at the end of this post, as the professional photos finally came! Life is hectic - like Mel
, I can't wait until first day of classes is overwith (on Thursday, here) as it seems like one can sort of take a big breath from all the endless 'welcome back', 'welcome, freshmen', 'welcome, new members' and 'here we go!' parties, of which there seem to be at least three every week. We also have a new President here, so there have been a LOT of parties welcoming him to every group of the college. Sheesh.
I love a good thunderstorm in the middle of the night!
CURSES ICE CREAM! Luckily DH seems to be eating it; I haven't indulged yet.
Totally jealous of your smoothie! Grats on the scale number, woohoo!
Hey lady! Well we JUST got married about two weeks ago, so you're not too far out of the loop. This semester I'm teaching Psych 101, Sensation & Perception, Research in Neuroscience. I also have 5 seniors doing thier "capstone" year-long research projects with me, and I need to figure out what I'm going to be doing with them, haha! I'm not sure I'm as wise as you but I'll take the compliments!!! Thank you for the compliments on that picture! I'll post some more below so you can get a better sense of the dress etc.
Lol, nothing is WRONG with wavy hair, I'm just a lazy girl and don't like the extra care I have to give it when wavy!!! I'll get used to it eventually, and when it's behaving it does look nice! Looks like you had a good Monday, good job!
For my coloring scheme below -
Green = met goal (not necessarily happy with the numbers, especially with the calorie counts, haha, but goal is met!)
Red = missed goal
Blue = goal in progress or not applicable on a certain day
1) Log every damn thing I put into my mouth and post daily, good, bad, or ugly. M: 1,968
2) Drink 64 oz, of water a day, no excuse, alcohol does not count M: Maybe 16? Yikes
3) Weigh in on Friday with new scale M-Th: N/A
4) Stop the mindless snacking M: Snacked mindlessly with lunch. All other snacks were planned snacks
I want to add in exercise goals, but I know it's not going to happen this week until I catch up with the semester. Any exercise I do is just going to have to be a bonus, I don't want to set up for failure.
I have a few life goals too:
1) Stick with the new hair regimen M: yes
2) Courses done and up online by Wednesday morning M: Got 3 of 4 done
3) Jobs spreadsheet Weds afternoon/Thursday; at least updated to current M: No progress
4) Post up some wedding pictures for you all! M: See below!!!
This shot is of me and my grandfather, who is very ill and couldn't make the wedding. We had a special sitting beforehand where I wore my dress so he could see it, and we got some pictures!
This is a detail shot of the dress that I really like (and me holding DH's ring right before I put it on his finger)
