First and foremost, I would like to thank those of you who have taken time out of your day to actually read the things I ramble here. I am so surprised when someone says to me that they have read my blogs and I am truly grateful for the time you take out of your day to visit my blog.

With that being said, help! I have been slacking on my daily goal of donating 10 pieces of free kibble to animals in a shelter. If you visit and answer their daily question, you help donate 10 pieces of kibble to a dog in a shelter whether you answer it right or wrong. With the economy in the situation it is in, these animals need our help. There is also a link to a site that feeds cats as well. So please, help me catch up and feed a hungry dog or cat!!!! It only takes 30 seconds, maybe a minute.

Thank you for either reading (again) and/or visiting I'll update about my eatings over Thanksgiving tomorrow, it won't be pretty!

I have found my blogging purpose

I have been snooping my way through people's blogs all over blogger and realized my blogging destiny-to write about my weight loss process.

Tacky, yes. Helpful, probably.

With the help of some friends and the support of everyone else, I am going to make this happen. My real motivation has been the 10lbs I recently lost between playing rugby again and eating healthier. I even gave up my drug of choice-Diet Coke. In fact, with the exception of an unintentional oops, I haven't willingly drank any type of soda in almost three weeks. It's been iced tea, juice and lots of water for me! And the result was an astonishing 10 pounds in three months, and six of those were lost after the last rugby game of the season. So, I must be doing something right.

I'll try to write about my struggles, downfalls and uphill battles-I'm sure there will be many. This will be a place for me to admit my wrongdoings and shamefully face them because if I don't do it now I never will later down the road. I'm tired of putting it off. This is like quitting smoking, if I wasn't willing to do it now I most likely never would and I successfully did that. Now it's time to quit eating like an addict and start making better choices. I want to live for a long time and I refuse to let my weight be my downfall.

A brief sigh of relief

I have been freaking out since I've taken my accounting midterm that I would not pass the class. While my professor is very nice, she is a harsh grader (my adviser even agreed, but we will get there momentarily) and not a very good teacher. It seems that more and more people that can do are being hired in to educate young minds but in the end turn out to be poor educators.

Anyway, I met with my adviser today. I explained the situation to him ("She gave one of the guys in my class zero points on a written problem because he put the title and company in the wrong spots at the top of his income statement while everything else was right.") and asked the scary question, "Should I end up failing this class, how far behind will it put me?" To my grateful surprise, he assured me that it might set me up to have to fight for classes next semester, but it will not set me back on the future planned schedule he and I sat down and created at the beginning of this semester. Sometimes I feel like every time I take one step forward to graduating and having a life plan, OU is pushing me two steps back. I will get there though, soon enough! Graduation is actually within reach now, I have a plan and a schedule to abide by. My life is going to be ok!

In other news, I actually have a Friday night off and G$ and I are going to the Lion's game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, it sounds like we'll be going to the parade this year and then heading back to my house to feast on delicious turkey dinner and mashed 'taters.

Well, here I am again...

Attempting to blog again. I'm never very good at these. I start them and then drop the ball because something else takes over (typically school).

Who am I?
No one special. I'm a college junior, attempting to get a degree in marketing. I have wonderful, supporting family and friends. A fabulous boyfriend who makes it his job to take care of me. I sometimes love my school, only when it's loving me back. Otherwise, it is usually making my life very difficult. I have a great job, an even better boss. I play rugby for an opposing school, merely because my academic facility does not have a girls team. Thankfully, a previous teammate from high school allowed me to play under her direction and am happily rucking and mauling again.

I will probably complain a lot about school and the people (ahem, idiots) that attend many of the classes I do, as well. I love to make people laugh but it's usually through my sarcasm but that can get lost in text.

Well, here goes nothin....with me luck!
