I'm sitting here, watching the season finale of Teen Mom.  I haven't seen it yet.  I haven't seen the episode before this either, but oh well.

So, as of this morning, I am at only .2lb above my previously met goal.  Somehow I lost .8lb at weigh-in this morning & yesterday.  I haven't been eating too carefully (unfortunately) but I guess something is working in my body properly or something.  Only hope it doesn't go back up.  It might tomorrow morning, but as long as it isn't too much, it'll be okay.  I would love to meet my next goal by Halloween or the week immediately following.  It's only 3.2 away from this morning's weight, so it's not crazy unless I do have a bigger gain in the morning or some other day(s).

I actually got on the elliptical yesterday.  Shocking, I know.  I only did a half mile but I guess it's better than nothing.  And Friday afternoon I went on about a mile bike ride, but it was slow pace because I was with kiddos.  I'd like to start getting on the elliptical more, even if it's only occasional & it's small amounts, because it's better than what I've been doing these days.

I wish I had a job.  I hate being broke & hate being bored.  I had an interview recently that seemed like it went really well but I am guessing not since it was over a week ago & I didn't hear anything so I called yesterday & they said they sent me a card, which is undoubtedly not good.  Oh well, guess I am meant to find something else.  I'm not even trying to get a job in my field of study because I know it's unlikely since I have no experience for the jobs that are out there.  I do apply to the ones I see usually, just in case someone wants to take a chance.  You never know & it doesn't hurt to try, right?  I had thought maybe if I could get a job, any job, like a cashier or something, then maybe I could do some volunteer work that was field related to help me get some experience (plus the whole getting to volunteer thing is cool).

I think that's all I am going to babble on for right now.  I had an 1.5 hours of sleep around 6am this morning & was sleepy & dozing off quite a bit throughout the day, but of course, now that it is night time & the lil one is in bed & all, I am waking up just a bit to where I won't fall asleep soon.  Ridiculous, but not surprising.  I accepted my weird insomniac issues long ago, because there isn't much other choice.  Over-the-counter stuff doesn't help or any other methods I've tried, & the only prescriptions I can get would be ones that would knock me out which I don't want because of my little one.

I hope you all had fantastic weekends!  And wonderful weeks ahead!  I think I am going to go catch up read all of your lovely blogs from today now.  Ciao! <3

First, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who have left sweet & encouraging comments! <3 I can't even list everyone because there are so many of you lovelies who have done so & it warms my heart to read your comments!  I adore you all for reading & commenting, more than I can say.  Thank you, so much!

Almost.Skinny: Thanks for the recipe for the sprite-type drink! Perhaps I shall have to try it sometime.

Isobel: I'm not a big milk drinker, other than when it is strawberry, sometimes chocolate, vanilla (Nestle made a bottled version, haven't looked for it in a while) & banana would be good too!

I hear about this teen mom all the time. Is it like 16 and pregnant or a completely different ballpark?

You and your elliptical sounds like me and my exercise bike... I need to get on it more often...
