say aah.

I'm babysitting tonight from around 5:45pm until 10:00pm. I'm excited to get some extra cash. Since the whole Canadian Government isn't giving me money back and being home from school thing started, I've been spending so much money! Like they say, when you're not at work, you go out and you spend the money you're not making. Saving while not working is a lot easier said than done.

With that being said, I'm expecting a cheque from the school for the last Sunday I worked. That will help me pay for my kickboxing classes. :) I still have money saved up, but I want to keep saving that up for school and transportation. That money is not being touched until September. 

I also still have some summer shopping to get out of the way. I need some empire waste tanks. Since I've been working out, I'm actually happy with my arms and I sort of want to sport my "new-ish" look with some new pretty tanks and tubes. My legs could use some more work, but I went for another long walk today, so I don't see my legs being a problem for much longer. I'm actually quite content with my calves. They gain muscle like noo tomorrow. Now, if only my thighs were on that page, too haha.

Next, I have to get my stomach flab to a minimum. I've already noticed a dramatic change since I've been home but that's because I've been active every single day (even if it is only for half-an-hour). I don't want crazy abs, but the outline of abs would be fantastic. For starters, though, I just want a flat stomach. 

I haven't weighed myself in a long time. I don't want to. Weighing yourself while trying to lose weight is a bad call. It can depress a person or make them more concerned than they need to be. I find that when I'm trying to lose weight by eating right and working out more, I gain more muscle before I lose any fat. Since muscle weighs more than fat, I always gain a few pounds before I lose any.

I'm going to weigh myself at the end of next week and see how every thing's going.

Anyways, I think I'm going to go make a tea and snuggle up with my book now.

P.S. I am obsessed with "Say Aah" by Trey Songz..."MAPLE LEAF DASH GOT YA FEELIN' LIKE TORONTO." REPRESENT.

Okay, I'm done.

Wooh hoo get that cash, sista!
I have a problem with my weight too-although it's the complete opposite of yours!
I'm TOO skinny, and I eat alll the time. My mom said she was skinny like me too, but then she had kids...

I wish I had your motivation, like the work you do and the exercise. I live near the beach (ok it is a grey and cold scottish beach) but i should still be running on it or something. Im just sooooooooooooo lazy!! I have gained so much flab since starting University just form not exercising.
