Unexpected job!

A friend of mine connected me with a job,that turned out to be a two day job after I was asked to come back. I'm not really going to say what it was for exactly but it was a wonderful experience, even though I was a newb & had no real experience prior.
Travel channel was filming nearby &  I was able to help on set. I was able to spend time with great people the director and assistant director. The hours were crazy & I had no time for anything accept coming home finishing the job & getting sleep- hoping it was enough for the next day. Another problem I faced while on this job was the food they provided was not so great... for breakfast one morning they only had coffee *I don't drink coffee* and bags and bags of McDonalds breakfast sandwiches McMuffins I think?  (although the 1st day they did have a bowl of fruit, I had a banana).

the show comes out in april & maybe I'll talk about it more then :] I have some pretty nice pictures from set.

ALRIGHTY!!!! so before my streak of busy-ness mr roommate her sister and I went to a park in St.Pete!
It was beautiful there.

Starting Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Today as day one of the workout and I can feel it... I haven't been working out as regularly as I was before- this was a wakeup call. The 1st level  will hopefully start getting easier but for now it's hard, but when I finish the 20+ minute workout I feel great about myself.

I know I'll be feeling this in the morning too!
Just wanted to post a quick update :]

Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender

Recently one of my roommates moved out & took along her blender... I was probably the only one that used it hahha (so I decided to get myself a new kitchen toy!)
There was a budget, it was small, I was able to find one that fit the budget!  It was perfect for what I was looking for. The blender small self serve, good for your own personal shake/drink of choice. I was also surprised how fast it broke down everything I put in my shakes, frozen banana, frozen strawberry,shake powder,ice,jelly & peanut butter. The blender comes with one button "pulse".. no fancy options that seemed to do the same thing in the end anyways. :p There is a feature to wrap the chord around the bottom so it's not laying around outside on the counter, easy to put away. So far I'm happy with it, the only thing I need to adjust to is the amount of content I put inside the blender :] fills up faster than you think! * this is after being used to a family sized/ regular blender... this is for one drink- good for me... maybe not somebody else :]
The lid
Ready to drink, from the blender
The bottom allows you to wrap the chord into the bottom :]
Picasa has changed & I'm not sure I want to deal with it anymore if I don;t have to... how do you all upload your photos from? I've noticed that even when you are uploading from your computer & haven't seleced are using picasa. I need to see if flickr has a way to easily post pictures onto blogger. I'd much rather go through flickr!

Relaxing Sunday

Where we went for dinner this afternoon! Picture from- 
I wish i had brought my camera.. I always regret not taking it :] I should know by now to listen to those feelings! Anyways the sky was a wonderful pink glowing color right behind the Hob Nob.

My weigh-ins keep getting delayed! I need to set an alarm to remember! I usually 1st thing in the morning just step on- every thursday! I weighed myself after dinner and it read 176.6! I just want an accurate number to go by..but til then that's what it is. Maybe I did gain that much?? I'd just like to know! I have a reminder set for myself now :}

Welcome Vacation! Final week is over!

The Fair!

 Some pictures from The Fair that came recently (last weekend). I always forget how expensive everything is at those... the tickets to get int plus tickets for each ride...haha it was still fun! Me and my roommate mostly watched the shows & visited some booths :]

The show we saw 1st was called The Pork Chop Revue

this little girl was adorable!

A little something I brought back!

Break is finally here, finally some time to relax and take a breather... that last week was a killer. Since yesterday there was a huge weight  lifted off my shoulders. It's a great feeling! I'm going to have to weigh myself tomorrow- I kept forgetting.

I sett my alarm to get up to help my roommate pack up ( she is moving out :{ ) for now I only have two roomies instead of 3 others! After I helped her pack it was my goal to straighten up and get some laundry done. Everything was neglected this past week! This blog FOR SURE!

anyways I have a month of break :}

25th Weight Watcher Weigh-In!!! Only a few before 50!

FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY..... x's a thousand (only a few more before 50!)

Plateau broken.. { at least that's what it looks like!} This week I lost 3.6lbs

Current weight: 271.2
Loss this week 3.6
Total Loss: -48.8
Starting weight: 320

Hopefully I'm done with the 276-8's haha. My points are starting to get harder to manage... I remember from when I started I had so many! Now that there are fewer it's starting to show, but I'm figuring out how to manage them :)

I'd like to keep this loss going!
