Oh, hey guys! Why do I feel like it has been forever since I've been in blog world? One reason may be because this past weekend I realized just how old I'm getting. Last Friday, I drove to northern Alabama to spend the weekend with one of my college friends and help out with a lock-in her church was having. We ended up having 53 kids! And in true lock-in fashion, no one fell asleep!
When we got back to my friend's house Saturday morning, we both crashed as FRIENDS played in the background. We woke up about 3 hours later, went to Sonic, drove around, and then crashed again at her place. This pretty much repeated all the rest of Saturday.
Now, I'm back home and have a great desire to get back into my daily routine. So, get ready for the rest of this boring, life update known as Random Post #256.
FITNESS // WEIGHT LOSS // HEALTH // NUTRITION // LIFESTYLE
Guys, I feel like it has been forever since I have worked out. And I know that first workout back is going to be rough. But, I'm feeling the effects of not working out. Mainly, my energy level is WAY down. That is the one thing that I'm missing the most.
When it comes to eating, I've been pretty good in sticking with it. Despite going out of town these past few weekends, I've been surprised at myself with the things I've refrained from. Now, I must admit, there was some fast food consumed this weekend and maybe a Sonic Blast. Yet, not nearly close to the amount I used to eat all the time. And when eating "real" meals, I've still gotten my fruits and veggies in. I also only had 2 soft drinks this past weekend. Guys, that was a first in a long time! I've cut out all soda and I must say, they weren't as good as I remembered.
Goals for this week: Some form of exercise everyday and record all meals in MyFitnessPal. Get back to the August challenges. (revamped to fit the remaining days)
JOB UPDATE // INCOME // FINANCIAL STATUS // MONEY
Still a no-go on jobs. I applied for a job in my town 2 weeks ago and never heard anything back. So, I'm back to searching around and praying something opens up quickly. I have a part-time job lined up for later in the Fall, but I need something right now. And part-time or full-time doesn't matter to me. I just need some money coming in.
My students loans recently got switched to another company and they are starting back up again this month. Thankfully, the amount is reasonable for me, but I still need a way to keep paying them!
Needless to say, I am VERY stressed when it comes to thinking about money, student loans, bills, savings.
Goals for this week: Apply, apply, apply. Pray, pray, pray.
Starting tomorrow, on Tuesdays, I'm going to be featuring blog posts that answer 11 Questions Every Twenty-Something Needs to Answer. These are questions asked by Paul Angone. For more information about this series, check out this post!
