This and That

Okay, who watched the season finale of The Bachelor??

I just finished watching all three hours of it. I don't know why, but I was a total addict this year and with them announcing who will be on next season... umm... count me in AGAIN!! I can't wait for this wedding to be aired as well, I can only imagine what Sean and Kathrine will have up their sleeves and I totally hope that Sean's dad will be the officiate.

Enough of all that though, I swear I'm usually not this wrapped up in reality shows.

I went through the refrigerator, freezer and cupboards Monday night and got rid of any kind of unhealthy food. It was actually pretty easy to do because I've been trying to buy healthier foods for the last month or so, so there wasn't actually a whole lot to get rid of. Then Jeremy, Henry and I made a trip to the grocery and only bought healthy items. I think the most unhealthy things I bought were whole wheat tortillas and 45 calorie bread. Jeremy has been doing awesome on his diet and I'm so proud of him for it.

My ankle is slowly getting better. I went shopping with my grandmother yesterday and was able to walk around on it for several hours. I also pushed myself to go walking for an hour on Monday night. It was not easy and it hurt like hell, but I did it and I felt good for doing it afterwards. I know I'm pushing it to heal faster, but I'm so motivated to get back out and start training again for this 5k in August. I don't want any time to waste and although I've stayed under my calorie goal almost every day for the last few weeks, I still haven't really lost any weight. It's disheartening to only eat 1300 - 1500 calories a day and see no results of that dieting. With time, I know.

I need a good book to read. I'm going to go crazy if I don't read something soon. Any recommendations?


  1. Fiction: Have you read "Gone Girl"? It's awesome (heads up: the f-bomb is used a little more than I like, but the story is still beyond nuts). I just finished When She Wakes". It's a little different than what I would normally read, but I really liked it!
    Non-fiction: I'm not a big non-fiction reader, or history buff, but you MUST read "Unbroken" by Lauren Hillenbrand. It is the most amazing, awe-inspiring book I've ever read.

    Yay for the ankle on the mend. Don't push it too much! You don't want to re-injure it.

    1. I haven't read anything in a good while. I used to borrow library books on my phone quite often and read them but they changed how to go about doing that and I still can't figure it out right! I'll definitely look into 'Gone Girl'. I've heard a couple of people talk about reading it lately!

  2. I'm glad that your ankle is getting better! Sounds like you are doing all the right things as far as walking and what not. :)

    1. Thanks Jen! I'm soo glad that it's getting better too.. and I'm sincerely trying to do all I can to make it heal ASAP!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
