Well Duh, How Can I Not Figure That Out

I know I have talked about having a few bad days last week after I hit One-derland. I was truly not sure why I was languishing after having such drive and determination for so long. I had tried some prop me up things, like my new mantra "I ain't going to law school as a lard ass" (which has been hugely successful by the by), but I knew I had to get to the low down on why I was not in the same frame of mind as I was prior to hitting that huge objective. As is often the case, inspiration comes to me when I am working out. I seem to reach a clarity of mind on the treadmill, on the road, or on the park trail when I am jogging. I did not set a specific goal after that huge accomplishment. I was ,well, languishing. So as I worked that out in my head, I started doing some math on how many weigh days I had between now and the end of April, how many pounds I thought it was reasonable I could lose each weigh day, and came up with my new goal. I want to be at 189 by April 22nd!! If I come up just short of that, then I want to be there by May 6 so that I can walk across that graduation stage in my 180's, a full 111 pounds or more lighter than when I got my Associates degree! That graduation picture may be one of my least proud moments ever. I look at it and just get a little sad now. Once this new picture is developed, the first one may "disappear" mysteriously.

I got the biggest adrenaline rush yesterday. I know I was already told by the dean of admissions I was being admitted to University of Arkansas School of Law, but I got the actual acceptance letter yesterday!!! I was so excited and my mind was buzzing a million miles an hour and it was just a wonderful feeling! I have scheduled a visit to the school so I can get familiar with it and I need to get my registration secured while I am up there. Oh and I have the best boss ever!! She and Jill got me a present and a very wonderful card to celebrate my admission and gave it to me yesterday. I got two books about surviving your first year of law school! I plan on giving them both a read this weekend and I am extremely grateful that I have such a wonderful boss or heck even just person as Cheryl Fisher Anderson in my life! She is so awesome. I can't even put it into words.

I am having a crisis of conscious. I have become extremely bad at commenting on blogs lately. It just seems I am going 100 miles an hour all the time and I do read them all in my feed, I just have gotten terrible at responding to them. It was all I could do it seems to pull out of the spiral of not posting I went through recently. I am sorry if I have offended anyone by my lack of participating lately. I will try to work on it, but at present, I have enough balls in the air that I am not sure how long it will be before I can make this right.

Ya'll have a wonderful Thursday and I will see you in the morning for yet another weigh in. I am not nearly as nervous about this one. it is kinda weird.

  1. I hear you about the blog-visiting. I've been remiss in that too. But...sometimes life catches up to you, and there's only so much that you can fit into your daily schedule. Just do what you can do, and your friends will be there waiting for you! :-) Congrats again on the acceptance letter!

  2. Everyone has a life outside of blog-land. It seems I take one or two days out of the week to catch up on everyone. It's a hard thing to do.

    Congrats on getting accepted! Did you do your happy dance?
