I'm back...finally!

Okay...shame on me. I haven't blogged since the week of finals, and that was two weeks ago. Along with my disappearance, I have been off track as well and gained 5 pounds...all the yummy, yet horrible, home cooking. But this morning, I woke up, cooked two egg whites (with one yolk), added plenty of tomatoes and green and white onions. YUM! So i feel really good about my choices this morning, and I tracked for the first time in a few days. I am determined to stay on the wagon this summer and not fall off and turn around like I did last summer.
I feel like once this internship starts I will be more focused as I will have my own refrigerator stocked with my food ONLY, and I'll have access to a gym and a walkable campus. My neighborhood isn't the best, and there are no sidewalks, so I have to exercise inside which gets to be boring after a while. I know, i know...excuses, excuses. My I'm glad to have my motivation back. I wanted to be either a size or two smaller by my birthday which is next Thursday, however, I have fallen a little short of that goal. But that's clothes are fitting much looser, so I'm happy about that. You can't always focus on your disappointments. At least, I can't...I have to find a positive in everything.
Well, life in little ol' Pascagoula has been not so interesting since I've been home. I've been to a few movies, a new Mexican restaurant (the chicken quesadilla had to have been 20 points!), hung out with friends, and baby sat my baby cousin -- he's so adorable! But sometimes, the simple life is just fine with me, especially after a school year of complexity!
I am really excited about my birthday. I will be 20 years old, and my dad is getting a room for me, my sister, and two of my friends at the Imperial Palace in Biloxi. It's one of the nicest hotels! And what's great about Biloxi is that we can walk everywhere!!!
Well, I have a lot of work to get done, so I guess I should stop blogging.
