Not That I Didn't See That Coming

SWell my poor eating this past two weeks, it caught up to me in a big big way this morning. I put on 4.6 pounds folks. That sucks. But here is the good news. All the emotion is over with now! I am done done done and done. I took my last final last night. I realized something about an hour before the final. I am a guy that needs a challenge in front of me. I have to be moving forward in some aspect of my life. I was wondering what my challenge was going to be for this summer and it came to me out of the clear blue. I am going to take aim at 180 pounds with a ferocity now! I don't have law school for three more months, I don't have undergrad for the rest of my life, and I really really was headed down the scale fast, so that goal made a lot of sense! So tallyho!

I am starting off that mission with a run in the park this morning. I love when it is sunny and warm and I can just jog my path down there. I stick my earphones in, I hit the trail and just get all chilled out and calm. It really is sweet, no kiddin'. And today I have to get to gettin' to finish all the stuff on my agenda. I have to clean up the back yard, get it mowed, hopefully get the front yard mowed, though it is less critical, I am selling my last book back, going to the records office to request a copy of my final transcript be sent to law school when it is ready and do some banking. My in laws are heading this way and should be here this evening and I am ready for some yee haw city! Tomorrow is my graduation day, the day I worked so hard for all those years. I did a bit of a not like me thing last night. It so happened that I took my last test in the same building as my first class was in. My first class was American Government, and it was in the lecture hall that has those seats, you know the ones. They have the little desk thing that folds up and down. I remember being hugely embarrassed that I couldn't make it work cause I was so fat. I had to use the one for the chair next to me to write on. So I stopped by that lecture hall on the way out and sat down in one of those chairs and folded the desk up for it and sure enough, bam it fit!! So I was excited about that. I hate to admit this, but I found it hard to get myself to leave campus last night. I kept kinda moping and looking and reminiscing. I finally did get out of there, but it took longer than it should have.

Ok folks, I am off of here, and fixing to head back down south on the scale numbers. Be keeping an eye out, cause it's on like Donkey Kong!!

  1. Congrats on your graduation, Shane. You can close the book on undergrad for good! You have probably been stress-eating, so it should be easy to lose. And I believe getting to 180 will be a breeze during the summer break. Great job, buddy!
