Tuesday (Day 27)
Still working on having my thoughts in a good place for my progress

So I want to get $100,000 for graduate school. Over the past few days, a few things have come up that could be how I make money when I get back to the East Coast, so that's exciting. My very best friend is learning how to flip houses and she has some good resources to do so. If she learns to do this quite well in a year, perhaps I can jump on board and do some of that with her, making money for school. In fact, if it can be done very part time, that's just about perfect. I could earn a good paycheck every 2 or 3 months and pay for school. So that is a very attractive possibility.
I also want to attract the circumstances that enable me to get to graduate school. Class is going well; I'm keeping up on all 3 and scoring full or almost full points. My GPA is already over a 3.9 and my volunteering for a Hospice seems to impress everyone I tell so hopefully it impresses the graduate schools. That's the end goal.
About body image/food/fitness, this past weekend, I let my fitness program fall behind a day and it will likely fall behind another day on Wednesday. I'm thinking this is not a tragedy. It is supposed to be the recovery week of the program so perhaps instead of adding extra cardio days, I can just skip the lifting days altogether and that will be that. It was funny how much I missed it tho and how much I enjoyed my workout yesterday - and the stretch afterwards! It's almost like I get grumpy when I don't get my workout in, lol!
Clothes are fitting nicely, haven't weighed myself, but I looked at an R&B video yesterday and it's like in Hawaii where the pretty girls are usually of Asian descent, I seemed to have forgotten that some men *love* women who have hips and thighs like mine. I've been spending so much energy unhappy with my small belly (it looks good in clothes but jiggles a little without) that I forgot to really appreciate how nice my overall shape is and although I'm not huge-boobed like a girl in my office who gets a TON of attention for that, in the right circles I get a ton of attention for my build. I think I'll watch some more of those to remind myself that sometimes I'm HOT, even if I'm not with a Tiny Waist/Big Boob combo. Other things are hot to some guys. So yeah, feeling good about my booty packaged up in these cute pants that I'm wearing today. :) I'm also very grateful that I have not become a victim to cottage cheese (cellulite on the back of legs) even at age 31 due to keeping up my fitness. So yeah, the legs are PHAT and I look good in short shorts. I think I'll keep my mind trained on these good things about myself as I drive to work.
Speaking of, yeah, work has been a little rocky in terms of how I'm perceiving some people. I'm in tight with a crowd that makes fun of some people's foibolles (phonetic - don't know how to spell that) but I think it makes me look too closely at those aspects of the people. I'm nicer to one but I should get out of the habit of seeing those traits predominately. So I have a plan to alter my ways a bit. I am kinder to the main one who was frustrating earlier so there is progress as well.
Onward and Upward!
