Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
This was a productive week. We got an early start nearly everyday and that made a great difference in our productivity. We have also stuck with no coffee which has been a positive change. Although, I still find myself feeling low in energy, but that’s okay.
Last weekend my boyfriend built us a Far Infrared sauna and it has been a total game-changer.
The best part is that it fit right into our closet and still gives us lots of room to spare!!!
For two weeks in a row we went on lots and lots of walks. Sometimes even 4 walks a day. This week we didn’t go on nearly as many walks because my boyfriend is working on a technical project that involves lots of coding. I’m totally cool with that, but I discovered that I really miss dancing… And dancing in your bedroom just isn’t the same.
This past week I was also feeling a little down because I still miss my sister, but I am starting to adjust. Having a little sister made it a lot easier to go out and do fun things like swim in the lake, go to the fair, and get ice cream. I sure miss her and hope that we will be reunited soon.
My boyfriend has been keeping me in close check when it comes to healthy eating and I am thankful for that because I have been having all kinds of cravings lately. Especially today and I think it affects my mood and my energy levels.
Yesterday I redeemed my free Bright Line Eating bootcamp. My friend Tara lost 191 lbs with this plan in 24 weeks and was even featured in “Women’s World Magazine!” This plan is a long term plan, but it involves giving up sugar and flour which seems like it will be challenging especially since I have been craving a lot of sugar and flour. I guess you can say that I feel less than enthused about starting this plan in the midst of such strong cravings, but it is probably exactly what I need. I also think that this summer is the best time to start since I am not working or taking classes. I can really focus on it without distractions.
I started doing full-push-ups this week which feels like an accomplishment. I have also started casually lifting weights. This week I stopped going to physical therapy because my leg is starting to feel better and they were giving me duplicate exercises so I am going to practice what they have given me so far and learn more about healing then in the future I can go back if I need to.
I got an email and found out that I moved up in the waiting list for “Integrated Natural Science” which is the chemistry, biology, and geology program this fall. I was number 37 and now I am number 12 so it is pretty likely that I will be able to get into the program. I wasn’t exactly jumping for joy because this program is so challenging and demanding and I still have not made progress with my studies this summer, but that’s ok I still have time.
I must admit that I have been a little bit of a negative Nancy lately which also turns me into a Debbie Downer so I have been practicing positive affirmations each morning and I think it is helping. I just need to keep moving forward.

I think I am doing a decent job with my goals for this month. I am seriously itching for an adventure. I think I need to go somewhere real soon and get lost for awhile in the beauty of it all.

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
