Today is the day ladies and gents! 21 days of almost no sugar I went to the family cabin this weekend and did enjoy a muffin or two and some snacks here and there because I knew It would be impossible to reisist but I feel so accomplished I do not binge like I usually do I don't need sugar after ever meal I have the thought in my head to say no because I am on the 21 day plan, I feel better, i'm not as tired I have retrained my mind ... all in all a succes! My next 21 days I want to devote to running in the mornings but I just don't know If I can committ to that we shall see :)

Good day! No sugar and no peanut butter eggs eaten (eggs were offerd all day by a student... ah no thanks!)today was busy like everyday, I wish there were more hours in the day I feel like every day is a blur and before you know it a month has gone by ah! Today was a good day though a run 3 miles at ten at night and then sprint one more to the beats of Lilly allen just because it feels good to push your body.A good day where a parent thanks you for "All you do , and making their child love coming to class." A stay late at work, visit teach , watch 5 lectures and conquer two study reviews good day. And lastely It's a shake yo money maker not on the stage of your own dance recital, but in the isle good day . enjoy.

I feel a little more lax with my non sugar this week... like granola cereal for example I eat it as a snack here and there and yougurt I need to tighten up that slack and get back on it! but in other news!!! I fit into a pair of old jeans that were more than snug, Im still not weighing myself but it feels good to have these babies wrapped a little loosly around my thighs ;) oh and I wouldn't mind having this adorable dress wrapped around me either! If I haven't expressed it enough let me do so one more time I heart shabby apple!

p.s. My birthday is in June;)

Day TWELVE (ha)

I know! I pretty much took the weekend off, I worked all saturday -day and then came back home to Provo stayed up waaay to late and then hit the ground runnin sunday! sunday is by far my busiest day of the week! but one of the best days as well. Sugar -still strong- scriptures-been doing better than expected! I just need to make it through finals and life will be sweet! just a little picture that basically sums up this semester

yep thats my giant white board calendar and yep it is a month behind and its almost April! don't worry I just updated it, but thats how I have been feeling lately not enough time for anything not even to update myself ha! In other random news I have a huge stress in my life (besides a battle with sugar ) Patt Neff

my turtle. yep my 50 cent piece size turtle who plays dead all the time I constantly worry about this turtle dying I always find him floating on his back in the morning stiff as a board worry about him all day to come home to him basking in the heat lamp like nothing ever happened! I strongly dislike animals Patt was a christmas gift from a friend and I honestly thought I would hate it but... I don't know why but I have seriously never cared for a dumb animal like I do for Patt ha ! and it stresses me out! I make sure he is feed has his heat lamp and clean water all the time I worry if he is lonely.... yikes I gotta get out :) the pictures above are of Patt trying to get as much sun as possible and the other of him doing yoga a rare but priceless thing :)

Do you want the good news or bad news first ???....good ok. Good news: I will be getting my scripts tomorrow ! Bad news: I had a taste of satans syrup (A.K.A. sugar) before you get all sorts of dissapointed in me let me explain! I was in charge of enrichment this month and had the awesome idea to have the bishopbric teach us how to make dutch oven everything was great! great turn out ! great food! everything was perf. until dessert time pecan peach cobble and raspberry with vanilla ice cream ahhhh! it looked so good but I was going to stick with my 21 days everyone was on my case to try it!! I tried to decline but it had to be done so I tasted it and oh it was gooood! but oh how I felt like a failure that dumb peer pressure could make me cave! contrary to popular belief I am not an attention seeker and I hate when the attention is directed on me ...without me seeking it:) so frankly to deal with the deep down embarrassment of everyone looking at me and egging me on to try it .. I simply did... but now I feel like crap and will not falter again so there is my downfall on day 8 almost half way there. Am I dissapointed? ya Will I keep tryin? youbetcha!
