Well the Bears made it to the sweet 16 and oh how sweet it is! Both our men and women's teams made it this year and it is just so totally AWESOME!!!! We play St. Mary's tonight and can I tell you I am already SO NERVOUS!!!! I am kinda sad because my entire family is in Houston going to the games and I am not there with them, but sometimes there are just commitments that you cant back out of. I just wanna say I am super proud of my bears for getting this far and cant wait to see what else you have in store for us fans.

As for an update on my weight loss. I have gotten to the point where I don't talk about it too much because I am scared to jinx it but as of yesterday, I had lost 13 lbs. Yeah! It's not where I want to be yet but I am doing pretty good. I am working out bout 5 times a week and I am on top of the calories I put in my mouth. Yes, every single one of them! My sister introduced me to a new iPhone app called mynetdaily: calorie counter and it is great it tells me exactly what I am doing right, what I am doing wrong, it calculates all of my calories for me and it puts me on a plan of how to meet my weight goals and by when. It is awesome!!!!! and its only .99!

Well not much else is going on right now, So I guess I will see you later! Oh and SIC'EM BEARS!!!!!!!!!!


Thursday, March 18, 2010 favorite month of the year!

I LOVE MARCH!!! For many reason March is totally awesome! First off, baseball season starts! For another Spring has usually already arrived and the Texas Bluebonnets have started to line the highways, one of my favorite things!!!! The main reason the majority of my life is my birthday is on the 30th and birthdays are huge in my family! (Fun Fact: I was born the day President Reagan was shot, I think it was part of my destiny to be a Republican). But as I have gotten older one of my all time favorite things is MARCH MADNESS!!!!!!!

About 6 years ago when I lived in NYC with my sister, her now "KREW" started a march madness pool. This was the Spring after the Summer 03 tragedy at Baylor and one of our top stars, John Lucas, transferred to Oklahoma State. Off of our team that year 3 players that transferred to other schools ended up taking their teams to the Sweet Sixteen...Oh the possibilities. Well, Heather and I ended up watching I think every single game we could and cheered on John Lucas as he scored a game winning 3 pointer all while sitting in her living room knitting scarves (yes I said knitting) we cheered for OK St all the way til their run ended and it was so much fun. I guess God was getting me ready to root for Okie St the rest of my life.

Two years ago, my beloved Bears made it to the Big Dance and I was so proud, unfortunately our run didn't make it to the 2nd round. But I was so proud of where those guys came from cause those Srs. chose to take a chance at Baylor at its worst and were able to do something and accomplish a dream. Well after a year absent in the tourney and making it to the NIT championship game, MY BOYS are BACK!!! And we're a 3 seed, A 3 SEED!!!! OH WOW!!! Well, we played today and I was such a nervous wreck! When it comes to BU sports I am a huge fan and always a wreck, especially when we are suppose to do good. See there have been so many disappointments along the way, I have to prepare myself for something bad to happen so I wont be crushed! Its the saying Hope for the Best, Prepare for the worst! That's my life when it comes to BU sports. Well I was doing that today, I was nauseous all day long because what if we don't live up to the Hype??? And my goodness there is hype, people are predicting us to be in the Final Four!!!! WHAT!?!?!? WTHeck!!!!! Well I will say, we won today, its WAS NOT pretty, but we got the W, I paced the entire last 3 minutes (even had to move furniture so I could, hehe). Hopefully we got all those nerves out and don't play like that the rest of the tourney, I may have a heart attack if we do. I hope we are able to live up to the hype but I dont think that I can rid of this something is going to happen nervousness, but I will say I believe and never have stopped believing in my bears! Its been a great year for those boys and they beat Texas 3 times (totally took me to my happy place)! So to my beloved Bears...I love you, you make me proud to be a Bear, now enjoy the "Big Dance", make the best run you can (I will still love you know matter what) and SIC'EM!

So its been a while...

So I have been meaning to post for like the last 3 weeks, it just didn't happen and I looked up today and realized that it had almost been a month. WHAT is my deal??? I will tell you it was the OLYMPICS!!! I L-O-V-E the Olympics, everyone in my family does. It was a tradition in my family to watch them and I just love them, which means for the entire 16 days they were on I had no motivation to do anything! I just wanted to watch them. Unfortunately, school does not wait for the Olympics to be over and neither does the wedding.

I feel like I have gotten a lot accomplished lately in regards to the wedding and I only have 2 months left of school EVER!!!!!!! I am so excited about that. But I feel really guilty at times. Because of the wedding, school, job, working out and all the every day stuff in life I don't always get to spend the best quality time with the people I love and mainly Chris. I feel like he gets the brunt of it since he's the one that basically sees me in passing because of all the commitments. I would love to just hand and go do something but if I don't do everything when will it all get done? Especially the things with deadlines...does anyone else ever feel this way?

I am having so motivation issues with working out, mainly I hate waking up early in the mornings for it! Because I dont get off work til 6-6:30 that puts me at home at almost 8 if I go to the gym, its crazy. I don't have an issue on Mondays for the weekend, its just the days I work, I hate it! But I will say I am doing really well on my 1390 calorie diet, that part I have not struggled with at all. I have finally lost some weight, not much but some so that is exciting but I don't like to talk about it because I feel like I will jinx it or something. That's about all that is going on right now. Hope all is well and I will try to not wait so long between post next time
