Out of it!

Zoe can always imitate how I feel... UGH today I feel out of it! Work has been soooo stressful! I left work yesterday so upset! Today was a little bit better. I made sure to voice my opinion at work... to my boss! I really am not going to take bullying in the workplace! So when I feel I'm in the right I neeed! to stick up for myself! :)

This week was our second week of Italiano Classes! It was so much fun. I forgot to take pics!! Next week I'll be sure to take pic of us students. haha!

I've been doing REALLY REALLY well with the no fast food! Fast food meaning drive thru places like McDonald's/Wendy's/Harvey's etc. However the other night coming home from work and having an appointment to make we went to McDonald's. I did not want to break my no fast food streak, so I went for a grilled mcmini haha! It was ok. Not the most filling meal but it did the job until I got home to grab something healthier.
I bought oats last week and still haven't made it. Some friends gave me ideas on what to add to it but I'm still scared to make it.... I've never eaten Oatmeal :O.... I'll get to it... eventually haha!

As per doctors orders I haven't been doing my workout DVD's :( I'll post on that soon. I'm still waiting for my results. But for now I'm sticking to eating healthy and light exercises which means lots of walking!! :)

Hope you all are having a great week so far!

Look at us good students! Italian classes began yesterday and it was so much fun! The teacher is coming to us and we are getting together at my moms house once a week. is the company we went with. Our teacher is from Naples. He is soo nice and funny and we had a great time laughing and learning!

Summer is here and there are MUCH more things to do. I'm SOOOO busy! I have not worked out at all! So tomorrow I need to sit down and re-do my weekly schedule! When things get hectic, I get a little crazy and the meltdowns begin! Soooo I'll need to get on that ASAP!

Also, work is really getting in the way of my eating ha! BUT It's true. I'm always in meetings or on different floors that I miss my snacks then get over the point of hungry which you know what that equals ---- crazy me and meltdowns! Seems like this is the story of my life these days! Crazy and meltdowns!No fun!!!!!

Tomorrow I'm heading to the doctors for my B12 shot, hopefully this gives me the energy I neeeed!

My mom came by with her dog tonight and Zoe just followed him around the whole house. They were good with each other it was cute.

Hope you are all having a great week!

Fruits and a good book.

I know it's only Tuesday but I've been doing great following my eating plan and workout plan. Keeping calories under 1500 and I got workouts in yesterday and today so far, so I'm on track!

The number 1 key is to have enough healthy food and snacks in the house so when hungry I go for fruit, or cucumbers for energy! :)

I've been reading eat love pray. I'm only at the beginning of the book and the author talks about learning Italian in Italy. The book draws you in and you feel like you are there experiencing what she is talking about. So today I was inspired! I'm going to take Italian lessons!
My background is Italian, I can understand a little and speak a little but in no way can have a full conversation. I've always wanted to learn and I did when I was 16 and traveled to Italy for 2 months, but I never kept it up. So it's my time to re-learn! Once I feel comfortable with Italian I'll move on to Spanish! :)

Are there any languages you would love to learn?
