Balancing Things is Hard!

Alright, alright, alright. It has been a week since my last post. I know I said I would update more often since I had an online class and would need the interruption every once in a while. Well (excuse time!), my class is a composition class, and I’ve been staying up late doing nothing but researching and writing papers. Yesterday, for instance, was a seven hour study day. Seven. Hours. Holy guacamole!

The good news: I finished a paper that I will actually stand behind. It is an original take on the story, and I have many sources to back up my ideas. Winning!

The bad news: ….I’ve been slacking. I haven’t worked out since last Friday. I stuck to my diet….until a couple days ago. I just wanted to eat everything! So I had Chinese food. Smart move, slick!

And a SMALL seasoned curlies. SMALL! I'm tryin' to lose the weight.

Luckily, I’m still down in poundage from last week, and my pants are still loose.

Speaking of loose pants…guess who fits into her skinny jeans! If you guessed me….well you’re just awesomely correct. Woot!

On a final note, I just want to thank my husband for being there for me. He cooked me dinner, cleaned the house, walked the dogs, took care of The Bug… papers from my printer that is literally two feet away from me when I was too buried in my homework to move. I don’t know how I would be able to balance being a mom, going to school, working, and being a wife without his help….even if he is distracting with his rock hard abs and beautiful traps.

Now that this paper is mostly done (one more draft!), and I have the week off from classes next week, I will start lifting again tonight (because, contrary to the common misconception, workouts and diets DON’T have to start on Monday’s), I will continue my healthy eating (because one or two days of cheating doesn’t mean you can’t still win), and I will update when I can.

Until next time,

Mrs. P


I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!
