I think I did too much

Work it out:
Sunday-5 miles
Monday-4 hours of mulching. I am SOO counting this as my workout for yesterday. I am SORE from it!
Today: swimming and 4 mile run. I have to say though, I did it ice cream TWICE today. And I totally feel sick and as big as a whale :( I so wanna cry or make myself 20 pounds lighter :(

I got FREE dinner last night because I helped my youth pastor and his wife mulch. I have NEVER done it before, but I am now say that I am not a rookie anymore, so bloggers if you need a friend to help you mulch, send me to your house and I will do for you, as long as you go running with me, bake with me, and let me take pictures with you :)

Today I relaxed this morning, then went to Soak City for two hours with some cuties for a couple hours, got some Dairy Queen, then came back showered, ate dinner, ran 4 miles(I think I got the shower out of order but I was GROSS from swimming) then went to a bible study and I got ice cream :( I totally HATE myself, but tomorrow I will run in the morning and will be walking for 8 hours at Cedar Point so I guess it will even out. I am going to be indulging in TONS of fruits and yummy things that are good for me tomorrow. Today was just a bad bad day :(

Tomorrow is my mommas birthday so we are going to the point to celebrate and then I am going to church in the evening. Thursday I am going to Columbus to hang out with a college friend and then going to gmas house for a few days!

Sweaty Mess

Work it out:
Thursday- 1.2 miles of running
Friday- 1 hour of elliptical and then some lifting.

I went to church on Wednesday night for a little crowning awards thing. Had two cupcakes and then went home. Drove home in the rainforest storm we were having outside, read and then went to bed.

Yesterday, I ran, showered, packed, library(twice in one week UHHH I guess Im addicted to reading???????!) then had my interview. I thin it went okay. I wont hear anything until after the 4th of July. Pray for me!! I then drove to Toledo, unpacked, packed up some things(to bring back with me) then went to IHOP with my friend Sarah and had a hot chocolate.

Today I ate oatmeal(YUM), went to my friend Alana's, watched Morning Glory, grabbed lunch, then went to the rec. I did the elliptical for an hour while reading a book and listening to music. I seriously LOVED it. When I get a job, I am so going to save up so I can get a pass to a gym. Im gonna miss having that sweet rec on campus after August :( I am suppose to hang out with my friend Erin tonight. We're suppose to go get pie(can we say homemade and the best ever) and then Ill probably die of a sugar coma. Ive been feeling sort of blah lately. IDK if its because Aunt Flo came to visit, Im sick of this gloomy weather, not sure of my future, or just in a funk but my stomach is SUPER messed up. I have heartburn after every meal. A lot of things dont seem to agree with me. IDK what to do :(

Have a question: Did you guys like it when I posted recipes? Would you like me to do that again?

Can I have a snooze button?

Work it out:
Monday- 1.5 miles
Tuesday-walked the kids I was babysitting to the park, and then RAN home with two girls on bikes, and pushing the toddler in his stroller, can I get a WHOA?!
Today-nothing :(

Monday I felt like a crazy woman...I chilled at home, then did all sorts of errands with my mom and brother.

Yesterday-ran errands, chilled, and then babysat from 1:45 PM till 3 AM. Can I please tell you HOW tired I am today. I played with dolls, watched Rugrats in Paris, pretended I was camping on the living room floor, made dinner, made smores(I ate two uhh YUM and idk how many graham crackers oops), walked to the park to stay for 10 minutes before one of the girls had to go to the bathroom, ran back home, watched some tv, got showers/baths/pjs on, watched some more tv, read some books by flashlights, made hot chocolate/bottles, tucked them into bed/kisses goodnight. 30 minutes later, the oldest girl(9) came down and said she couldnt sleep(there was a huge storm going on. Rocked the little guy (2), sang a song to the oldest, and then read/watched Marley and Me/played on the computer/Quiet time/feel asleep until the lovely parents came home at 245.

This morning-I went and tutored two girls. Question out there--if someone was tutoring a soon-to-be third grader and a soon-to-be kindergartner what would you charge? I do about 1 hr-1 1/2 once a week. What do you think I should charge this mom? She wants to pay me. I laid outside for an hour, filled out a bunch of paper work for my interview for tomorrow. I am so tired/too hot to run and I dont think Im working out again today. I didnt run yesterday, or today. I cant get out of this funk. I cant pay for a gym membership. I cant get access to the living room tv( My brother just stays in the living room and wont let anyone else use the tv) I dont have a dvd player in my bedroom so I cant do my workout videos. I just want to cry. Anyone want to adopt me?! Still need to shower, read my bible, get dressed/cleaned up, and then church tomorrow. I AM running tomorrow morning. Someone hold me to it.

Also, whenever I am relaxing/trying to sleep at night, I get heartburn. I dont eat past 6-630, I dont drink pop/alcohol/juice, I rarely eat bread, starches, sugar/sweets. Someone please help me out

No Witty Title

Work out:
Friday-Swimming, Relay for Life(my legs and hips were KILLING me the next day!)
Saturday: 3.5 miles
Sunday: took a walk, Wii Just Dance(My arms are so sore)

This weekend def. drained me. So many crazy activities and crying a lot and just being the weekend. I could use a vacation for sure.

I havent worked out yet today. I woke up at 7:50 and it was already hot outside :( Ill get my run in later, if not Ill do an abs video

Not really sure what to talk about--Father's day was hard for me like always. I cried a lot in church, cringed every time the pastor said the word dad, and kept looking around the church at all the dads out there that are sort of like a dad to me.

Been feeling left out lately. All of my friends back home are married, so they all hang out together. I dont have a job, so I have no money. Im not dating anyone so I cant really 'hang' out with that group of friends. My mom is never home and my brother never really is home other than to sleep/shower, so I am usually home alone in the house and it makes me really sad. A friend from school asked me if I was depressed, and honestly I dont know if I am. I just want a group of friends to include me for once. So wish I was going back to college in the fall.

I am gonna go for a run tonight :) YEAH!!

If only I meet the man of my dreams today, then this could be the BEST.DAY.EVER!!!

Rainy days make me sad

Chunky Apple Muffins(got from Martha Stewart website)

A can't-resist breakfast treat combines autumn's flavors: cinnamon, toasted nuts, and tart Granny Smith apples.
Yield Makes 12


Vegetable cooking spray
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon plus 2 pinches salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (omit if serving to children under 3)
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 12-cup standard muffin tin with cooking spray; set aside. Cut 3 apple quarters into 1/4-inch dice; cut remaining apple quarter into 12 thin slices for garnish.

Whisk together sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add diced apple and walnuts, if using; toss to coat.Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and butter in a small bowl. Gently fold buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Divide batter among muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full. Top each with an apple slice. Bake until muffins are brown around edges and spring back when touched, 16 to 18 minutes. Let muffins cool slightly, about 5 minutes, before turning out of tin onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cinnamon-Oat Pancakes(From Martha Stewart Website)

Rolled oats give these pancakes a hearty, nutty flavor. Serve them with butter and maple syrup or powdered sugar and bananas.

Prep Time 35 minutes Total Time 35 minutes Yield Makes 20


2 cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups milk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more for skillet

In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and 1 cup oats and pulse a few times to coarsely grind oats. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and oil. Add dry ingredients and 1 cup oats and whisk just until moistened.

Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium. Lightly oil skillet. Using 2 to 3 tablespoons for each pancake, drop batter in skillet and cook until a few bubbles have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until browned on undersides, 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with more oil and batter.

I went running this morning--but it was a short one, like 1 1/2 miles. I just wanted feeling it, and my knees were really hurting me. I applied to Justice today online--its a little girls store. I am basically just trying ANYTHING. I woke up at 930 today. Forgot to eat breakfast, so all I have eaten today is my lunch. I am STARVING right now. Like my stomach is growling at me right now. Its raining. I am bored. I have NOTHING to do. I wanna bake, but we dont have an oven right now. I am tired, but I dont wanna sleep right now. Lord, please provide me a job--SOON. Enjoy these recipes. Bake for ME since I cant enjoy it at the moment.

Things I am missing today

PB and J Otter was a fave. SO was Arthur, Rugrats, Dinosaurs, Erekicas Castle, Gulllah Gullah Island.

I LOVED this show when I was little. Fraggle Rock was a fave.

Im missing college. Football games. Free UT shirts. My long hair. That girl with me in the picture.

Really missing Christmas time. Making gingerbread houses, crafts, listening to Christmas Tunes. The twinkly lights

My dad-his hugs, advice, laugh, how tall he was.
Bread-I rarely eat it and I miss pumpkin bread, muffins, pancakes, french toast.
Baking-my mom still doesnt have an oven so I miss baking things
Running-my body is sore so I didnt work out today and I miss how I always feel so calm and peaceful running.
Wildwood Summer Project--my brothers and sisters in Christ. How we always laughed, joked, cried, had amazing moments and memories for the rest of our life.
Being 2-life was just so incredibly simple and easy. Why is life so hard now?
Gymnastics--so miss the grace, the music, tumbling, the hard conditioning. I sort of want to coach.
My grandpa-he was such an amazing man of the Lord. I miss how he was my best friend.
My blogger friends--even though I haven't met any of them, I miss them. You all have a place in my heart.
Laughter-I need a good laugh. Anyone know a good joke?! Or a movie I should watch that will make me pee my pants or laugh so hard my sides hurt?!

Well that is all I can think of at this moment. I decided to NOT be so down about my life-having fights with family members, not being able to find a job, not having a boyfriend get me down in life. I am just trying to find my blessings today and so I wanted to say what I missed today. What do you miss today?

Is it time to Retire?

I went to Cedar point, Dairy Queen, the park, the library, tutored, ran 3.6 miles and got some sun again today. I did the first four things with the youth pastor's 2 girls. I really wanted to do something special with the girls-especially since him and his family bought my lunch on Sunday AND replaced my car tire for me.

I just went onto my email account and this website came up.

Apparently I am suppose to be retired now. Dear world, I havent even FOUND a job yet. I cant retire yet. I cant even pay off my student loans starting in Dec. yet because I cant find a job. Thanks, concerned citizen.

A few of my friends are doing a warrior dash in Sept. Is it hard? Will I die? What is it like? Should I do it? If I do, how do you train for it? Advice--PLEASE

Take Four

The title is NOT only the title of the book I am reading right now by Karen Kingsbury, it is also happens to me the FOURTH time I have been turned down from a job. First a nanny, then the day care, then a lady never called me back, and I was suppose to have an interview on Wed. for a babysitting gig, and then I get a text while I was heading out to go get my Cedar Point pass saying they dont need me anymore. WAAA! O well, I am just learning to trust God in this VERY difficult circumstance in my life right now.

I got my Cedar point pass today, laid out for an hour and a half, AND got my tire fixed. WHOO!!

Lately, I have been really feeling down--about everything lately. I have been missing dad alot lately, and have been thinking about if I would have talked to them more about my faith, he would be in heaven. I have been thinking if I was thinner or skinner, I would be engaged to this guy I was "talking" to the whole fall semester of my sophomore year of college. I have been thinking that if I was just better at life, I would already have a job and I wouldnt be feeling so sorry for myself. I am really really trying to just be okay with everything in life lately, but I just IDK feel like Im in a FUNK and I cant get out of it. Will someone please hire me, or find me a date, or give me a 'dad' hug?

My heart is feeling sort of blah

The Bride and Groom :) Please dont mind my hair. The wedding was OUTSIDE and needlesstosay---my hair decided to have a mind of its own :) I ate TOO much candy yesterday at the wedding, but o well I'm going to do better with my diet :)

I went to church this morning. We talked about taking the bible seriously. I am really going to be working on reading and studying the Word more, even memorizing scripture. After church I went into the parking and saw the youth pastor by my car and I had a flat :( I went to lunch with the youth pastor and his family. I got a HUGE headache, barely ate my food and seriously felt like I was dying. I went back to their house while he put the spare on for me. I got some medicine and got sick. I have NEVER had a headache made me sick to my stomach like this in a LONG time. It wasnt even hot outside today. It was like a spring day today. Pastor Tim put the spare on, and then I was dropped by at my car. I came back, changed, and then just relaxed the rest of the ending. I ran 5 miles today as well. Tomorrow Im going for a run, get my tire back(he is taking it to the shop to get the valve replaced) maybe go to the library, and lay out in the fun sun :) Still no job, but Im just trusting God.

I am going to do this, next week and pray about--jobs, God's will for my life, relationships, and other issues in my life. I got up at 10 AM this morning. UHHH I never sleep PAST 8 ever in my life.

Kiddos on my mind

Saturday night I went to Dave and Busters. It was really fun, even though I didnt play any of the games(no job, no fun) I got burger and some sweet potato fries. YUMMY!

Sunday I went to church, then to a grad party, and then ate a yogurt for dinner-not much to eat at home.

Yesterday--I woke up and was going to run but I ended up hitting my alarm and didnt wake up until 730 and had to be out the door by 9. OOPS. I went over to my youth pastor's house. I helped her change her kids clothes from winter to summer. She has three kids, so we finished the youngest, picked up the oldest from a tutor sessions, then worked on the middle child's drawers, picked up her from safety town, then worked on the oldest. I have never seen anyone with so many tubs of clothes. So insane! I ate lunch with them, mopped, folded laundry, and then we set to work on going through tubs of clothes to get rid of for garage sale. I had to keep telling her she could do it(it was hard for her to depart from all the baby clothes) When we got done, it was 6 and we were all starving. We went to the store--she wanted to make me dinner because I helped her a TON so we went to Walmart, got the stuff, and then her husband grilled. I then came home and went to bed.

This morning-got up at 645 did the 30day shred level 1 video--my mom had exercise tv and I wanted to kill Jillian. My knee has been bothering me, so all the jumps/cardio stuff I had to sit out because it put too much pressure on my knee and i had to stop :( I went back over to Meg's house and helped her spray paint windows. I then had lunch with them, watched the girls while she took the youngest-Joel to the doctor and then to speech. It was really fun. It is incredibly hot here in Ohio. I am going to a park at 5 to have a picnic with my friends Melissa and Jessi. I hope I can eat some dinner--I am so hot IDK if I wanna eat :( Still no job :(

I got a card in the mail from my friend Allen. He is on a mission trip in Kenya right now and I gave him support in the fall for his trip. I cant wait for him to get back so I can hear all about it :)

I wish I had bloggers who lived close by to me. I need a workout buddy for sure..or cute babies to play with/babysit for FREE :)

100th Post

Today is my 100th post on this blog. Holy cow so insane. Today is my half birthday whoa buddy!

Still havent found a job---Im starting to become really depressed. I barely read my bible(havent in a week) or journaled. I basically lay on my bedroom floor and read books. I cry alot. I feel so unworthy in this world. I feel like a HUGE failure. I keep praying but I dont hear God's voice. I want to give up, but I know I cant. I just IDK cant do this anymore. Being at home brings back a ton of memories about my dad. I miss him alot, right now Im trying so hard to fight the tears that are forming on my eyes. I wish he was here to encourage me.

Going to Dave and Busters tonight with some friends to celebrate a birthday--but I dont wanna go all of a sudden. I just wanna cry my eyes out and feel sorry for myself. I am trying so hard--to find a job, to lose weight, to be patient about gods timing and relationships and yet I keep feeling like its not worth it.

I ran the last couple of days but when I got up this morning, I had NO energy so I did a workout video but then I ended up losing my breakfast :/ I waited almost two hours, so weird. Wish I had a really strong community around me--I just want a hug, or someone to take a walk with me. I just want everything that all of my friends have and more. Sometimes life is just not fair.

Sorry for being a debbie downer.

Cleaning out the closet

With no job-it is causing me to do random things in my mom's house so far. For instant, today I was looking at the hall closet that is by my bedroom. It is above our laundry shoot, yes we have one, and it is full of puzzles and games. Well it was. I decided to clean it out :)

I first found the card game--Battle of the Sexes. I read my mom all of the Boy card questions, and seriously if we were playing for real we would have WON! My mom was like so incredibly smart. Whoa momma!

I then found puzzles--Lion King puzzles, Mumpetts(sorry I forgot how to spell Babies, it!!) and then Nsync and some other bad boys. My mom decided that since they were all out, I should put the puzzles together. If they are missing pieces, they are going to get throw out. IDK what we are going to do with some kid style puzzles(I guess I could use them for my classroom-Africa theme or something) or we can sell them--for what 40 cents?!

Nsync puzzle that has NEVER been open. Yes that is right. I am going to try to sell it on Ebay!!

The two puzzles so far that have all of their pieces. I just feel completely lame that I wanted all of these Lion King puzzles. My mom said my brother and I were like in LOVE with the movie. I have done a total of 3 Lion King puzzles, two have all of their pieces.

I am going to do this puzzle when I am done with this post. This shall be exciting.

Totally wish I had a friend to help me put puzzles together. I was getting really frustrated doing one of them, I looked at the box and it said Age:4-8. I looked at my mom and said, Mom my 2nd grade student teaching class could have done this with a breeze and yet I have a COLLEGE DEGREE and I am getting frustrated. What.the.heck. I finished them though. No worries.

My mom already made me dinner-she grilled salmon and corn on the grill. She had to go to work by 4:30 so needless to say I am home alone once again, and had to eat dinner at like 4:15. I am sure I will be STARVING later. I did eat cereal for breakfast, after I ran 3 miles, a salad for lunch. I want frozen yogurt so badly but there isnt any places in Ohio. I guess I could get Tofts ice cream, but I dont wanna go there alone. O well

I LOVE Toft's it is so yummy!!!

Off to do more puzzles and listen to music on Pandora. O speaking of Pandora--last night I couldnt sleep when I got back from church, so I turned on my computer and was so incredibly hot when I was trying to get comfortable, so I was trying to think of ways to think 'cold' well then I made a Christmas Pandora station. You can judge me if you want, but I LOVE Christmas Music. It is by far my FAVORITE music EVER!!

I just gotta this say this:

NOTE to self---

When you go outside at 10:30 to read on the lawn chair in the sun in your bathing suit for an hour, you may want o wear sunblock. I got my first sunburn of the season :/

O and p.s. dont google sunburn and then look at the pictures because I def. think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Trying to focus on the positive

Well I cried myself to sleep, and Im giving myself a ME day before I go find another job. I was texting the music pastors wife about my sad day and asked if I applied to the day care she works at. I have and she told me that they are STILL hiring and she will talk to them the next time she works! AHHHH THANK YOU LORD!! I am praying that I get this job. If I do I will be so happy!

Off to do some laundry, go to Panera Bread with a sweet lady who has five kids and she is like a second mom to me :) I have already ran/walked 3 miles today, laid out for an hour, showered, and have done 3 loads of laundry. Yeah! Happy Wednesday(haha I totally just typed Wedding) O brother!! I would totally eat these yummy pasteries if I knew they wouldnt cause me to gain a thousand pounds!

YOU yes YOU should go to Ruth's VERY cute blog where she is giving away bowls she made HERSELF!! Ah!! Go enter for real!! She is such a dear beautiful friend in my life(even though I havent met her, but I WILL one day :)) and I am super pumped for this giveaway. GO there or be a COLD on this hot day. Yeah IDK where that came from. K thanks
