My Thoughts

I was laying in bed last night not being able to sleep as usual thinking about my health,my eating habits & other body thoughts you know the usual nighttime thoughts lol...A few things dawned on me
  • I need to start eating breakfast and I know this is common knowledge but hey I never said I was a fast learner lol...When I don't eat breakfast I am starving by lunch and end up eating more then I would had I eaten breakfast

  • I need to stop eating dinner so late and then going straight to bed(yes I know you should wait at least 2 hours before you go to bed) but sometimes 2 hours is too long when your dead tired and just want to lay down

  • I wonder if eating so late is why I can't sleep at night and I also wonder if that's why when I get up in the morning I feel all ugh like I have a cement block in my stomach

  • I need to make an appointment with a nutritionist

  • I need to go to Lens Crafter's and get my eyes checked I know I am due for some new glasses

Today has been a day full of irritation if there is one thing I HATE its when people are suppose to show up and they don't last Monday I received a 2 day notice informing me that maintenance would be coming into my apartment between Wed the 21st-Wed the 28th to make repairs from the inspection last month(now mind you all I needed fixed was the pulley chain on my fan to turn it off and on) ok so anyway's they have a week to come in here and fix it well guess when he came to fix it HE DIDN'T it would have been nice had someone put a note on my door saying sorry he won't be able to get to it today or something...I am pissed because there are things I would have rather have been doing besides sitting all since last Wed waiting for him I don't like having people in my apartment when I am not here unless I know them...Let's see what else I got a wrong number call 6 times today every time I would say hello they would say oh sorry I think I have the wrong number how do you call the SAME wrong number 6 times ?

But on to good things today is 6 months since I had a glass of soda and tomorrow I cut out junk food the bad sugar I don't need sugar-free stuff here I come lol....I found a new love besides Crystal Light..I tried new Lipton Tea Pyramid Tea Bags me being a tea fanatic I had to try them so I went & got the White Tea with Island Mango & Peach Flavors now considering I don't like peach I would say this is damn good lol..So I guess that is all for the night folks hope everyone is having a goodnight....

I Rise

Ever since I read this poem in school I have loved it..I figured I would share it with you all

Still I RiseYou may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?'
Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard'
Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shameI rise
Up from a past that's rooted in painI rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fearI rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clearI rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

I was reading the Sunday paper online and came across this story..By the time I was done reading I was appalled at these peoples actions and how some of then think what they did was ok. I am including the link back to the story read it and let me know what you think.
( This is what is wrong with this world today seriously is their ever going to come a time where people are accepted as is ? I have to commed the people who took a stand and decided to leave I also feel sorry for the ones who were made to feel as if they weren't good enough to be part of something that is suppose to be like a second family while you are at college. Its disgusting that these people felt like they had the right to tell these women sorry your not pretty enough or your not skinny enough or the right color to be in our club sorry. Things like this make me wonder if we are living in 2007 and things are this way are things ever going to change or are they only going to get worse ? Feel free to comment I would love to hear what you have to say about this article....

What Is Yummy For 100 Calories or Less

I was reading this article about things that are 100 calories and under they listed 10 things so I figured I would pass on what I learned in the article

1.Hershey Kisses-Just 100 calories for 3 pieces

2.Half cup of strawberries & four tablespoons of lite whipped topping for only 90 calories

3.Half an english muffin & a teaspoon of peanut butter for 95 calories

4.Graham Crackers-2 sheets for 100 calories

5.Jello Fat-Free Pudding Snacks- 1 pudding cup is 100 calories

6.Frozen Yogurt-3 ounces is 100 calories

7.Cherries-1 cup is 95 calories

8.Egg-1 medium hard boiled egg is 81 calories

9.Almonds-10 raw almonds roughly equals 100 calories.

10.Popcorn-3 cups of air-popped popcorn for just 93 calories

I honestly don't know if I could only eat 3 hershey kisses thou lol....I wonder how many calories a cup full of lite whipped topping minus the strawberries would be (yea I know I'm bad). I am not a fan of english muffins or peanut butter..But I do love graham crackers and Jello fat-free pudding..I have never tried frozen yogurt if anyone has let me know how it tastes..I love fruit but cherries is not one of them anything cherry I hate the taste of..I like eggs in a nice egg salad sandwhich but alone it isn't my cup of tea..I like almonds by themselves but mixed in with anything or covered in anything I don't like...People think I am weird because I don't really like popcorn a whole like to be honest I can do without it all together..

Hobby Junky

I have so many hobbies well things I like to do or think I will like to do so I go out and get things to start these hobbies and then I lose interest lol..I have a closet full of beads and other jewelry making things...I also have a thing that melts the wax so you can make candles and I have tons of wax and all these scents lol..I also have books on knitting and crocheting and some yarn. I have tons of ideas for all this stuff but for some reason I just can't get them to come together and its driving me crazy so here it all sits in my closet staring at me every time I open the door. I thought about bagging and selling the beads but I know after I do that some great idea will hit me lol...I really want to teach myself how to knit so I know I need to buckle down and get it started maybe in a few years I will have made something that someone can recognize what it is lol. So I was wondering does anyone else have this problem you start something and then you never seem to finish it ??

Road To Recovery

Ok well Friday's Dr. Appt was a good one...The culture from the ER came back as just a regular bacteria so that is good...No more shoving gauze in the hole I wanted to kiss her when she said that but I think that would have been very unprofessional LOL...The whole has gotten considerably smaller since my visit to the ER its nice and pink which I guess is a good think its bad if it turns red...As long as it keep healing I am ok if it takes a turn for the worse she says I will have to go to wound care so lets hope I keep healing...

So I have to keeping cleanng it and putting the gauze on the cover it and wrap gauze around to hold it she also gave me more antibiotics not as strong as the other ones but I have to take them 4x a day..Yippeee more pills(sacasm)..She had me tested for Diabeties and my Cholestrol since its been over a yr but she doesn't think I am Diabetic because one of the pills I am on for my PCOS is also used for Diabeties

She also said even after this heals I am going to have to be careful that I don't hit that part of my leg on anything since it won't be as strong as my reg skin I am thinking great I need to buy a shin guard lol...My leg still hurts like hell thou lol so hopefully the pain will lessen as the wound heals..I have to go back and see her in a few weeks so she can see about my leg..Maybe I should buy a shin guard just to be on the safe side lol...I hope everyone had a good weekend it seems evreyone here decided to run to the car wash on Friday only to turn around and have it rain Sunday

If Your Falling Apart & You Know It Raise Your Hand (I Am Raising Mines)

Well I switched over to the new blogger so we will see how this works out for now so far so good but this is only my first post using the new version...So back to falling apart I have to tell you this year I finally decided I was going to start taking care of myself like I should be so I stopped drinking soda and I started taking my Blood Pressure medications like I was suppose to and I have to tell you since then I swear my body is rejecting me..Let's take a trip down memory lane here for the year so far...Well in Jan I had a case of the shin splints on my right leg well I dealt with that and then next thing I know I have what appears to be a blister appear in the front kind of on the side of my lower right leg in the shin area ok so the blister is about the size of a quarter and its full of liquid so I think ok no big deal its just a blister well obviously I was wrong well as it began to drain I cleaned it and covered it so it wouldn't get infected well in the process of me cleaning it when I would dab or wipe the skin would come off my leg on the blister area so as time went on my skin was coming off and I could see the meat under it(not a pretty picture for sure)...Well I have a Dr. Appt Friday but I was freaking out about my leg and honestly couldn't wait till Fri to have it seen so at about 4 AM this morning I get to the ER and have it looked at by this time its the size of a Cadbury Easter Egg(which while I was telling the Triage nurse about it feels a need to say OMG I love Cadbury Eggs they are so good now I am thinking umm yea I am glad you like them but can we get back to the issue at hand here) and its about a half a fingernail deep..So I get called back and the Dr comes in and looks at my leg and says I have a ulcer on my leg which some how equals a skin infection I am thinking sort of like a abscess so she tells me I need to be checked for Diabetes since my mom is Type 2 and I just found out this morning that my brother has Diabetes also. I gotta say I really hope I am not Diabetic honestly with the High Blood Pressure, PCOS and the Lymphodemia I have enough on my plate already its full enough so when I go to my Dr Friday I have to make sure I get tested. I also got a tetanus hot man that hurts like hell..But the ER Dr gave me some Antibiotics and some Tylenol 3 w/ codeine for the pain. I have to wet dry wrap it and change it once a day which means I have to take some gauze and wet it and stick it in the hole and make sure its flush with my skin and then wrap dry gauze around my leg and follow up with my Dr. on Friday. Man all I know is when she had the nurse come in and clean out my leg OMG I thought I was gonna die I was squeezing MK's hand so hard I thought I broke a finger or two but he is ok it was his left hand anyways lol he is right handed. But she sprays water in it which was no big deal but then she wipes the water out I swear it felt like she shoved to fingers in there like she was digging for gold man then she says to me as she is wiping this looks like it hurts does it hurt I got ready to say no I always clench my teeth when I talk to someone lol. So by the time we got out of there it was almost 8 o'clock I went and got my pills filled and came home and took them and went to sleep..So that was my fun filled day in a nutshell hope everyone is having a good weekend...Also thanx to everyone who has listed me on their blogs I feel so honored
