What I’ve been up to! (as of November 25, 2018)

Hey everybody! I am SO SORRY that I have been absent lately. I haven’t forgotten about the blog, I swear! I have just been feeling awful lately and I have scheduled a therapy appointment to have someone to talk to about the troubles in my life I am currently facing.

But today, I am going to tell all of you what I have been up to!

Started My Art Blog

Yup! Just started my art blog! It is called My Wandering Mind!

I have two posts on it currently and would have a few more, but like I said, I have been feeling awful lately and haven’t updated it lately… But I am hoping to keep it going! I will be posting art sketch dumps next, so please stayed tune if you would like to see them! : )

Until then, here is my first piece of artwork up on my blog! It is of Deku from the series, My Hero Academia. Hoping you guys will enjoy it. ❀

Shopped Goodwill Black Friday Sale

So I did manage to go to the Goodwil 50% Off Everything Black Friday Sale and this is my haul!

The stuff that looks like a giant blob is my haul, haha… xD

I mainly bought exercise clothing for the winter since I did not have any for this time of year for about $2.50-$3.00 a pop! I’m always on the lookout for long exercise leggings as well, so I bought two pairs of them! And the rest of the stuff were wants basically, haha. : )

But I did have a lot of fun being my “natural environment” you could say. ;D

Made Green Bean Casserole

I don’t have the picture or recipe on hand, but I did make a green bean casserole for Thanksgiving! And oh my god… It was SOOOOOO tasty! ^ o^

I also went to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s house for Thnaksgiving dinner and that was a lot of fun! It was fun spending time with them on Turkey Day. πŸ™‚

Signed Up to Volunteer

So I have basically put in an application to volunteer at a local Retirement Home! Crossing my fingers that I will get accepted! It has been awhile since I have heard from them, but I am hoping everything is going okay with my application! πŸ˜€

And that’s about it…

So yeah, I have not been doing a lot lately. Just like luandry and stuff. *shrug* \ (‘ u’) / I wish my life were a bit more exciting, but it is what it is.

I am very sorry about the short blog post today! πŸ˜₯ Just wanted to let everyone know that I stil care about updating the blog and haven’t forgotten about it. I’ve just been feeling too crummy to write is all and now matter how many “sunshine pills” AKA Extra Strength Vitamin D pills I take (one serving of them a day), I still feel awful. Hoping the therapy appointment will help a lot for me. ❀

What have you been up to lately?

What did I do/buy this Thanksgiving and this weekend? (November 23, 25-26)

Hello, everybody! This week’s weekend update is special because it will also include how I spent Thanksgiving!

So, we’ll start with Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we didn’t go to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s for Thanksgiving due to LOCMom and I coming down with colds, so we went out to eat since it was just the two of us! Check out the Thanksgiving food at our local restaurant, Lumberjacks!

Thanksgiving

Mmmmm, good stuff it was! I even had leftovers for the next day! LOCMom treated me to this delicious meal, so two thumbs up for her! πŸ™‚

And a little later, we hit the Black Friday sales at the mall! I managed to buy four tops that I usually wear for 5 bucks each and with a $10 off $10 coupon from JC Penney, seeing that two shirts were $10.00 in total, with that coupon, it was like getting two shirts free! In reality, the coupon made the shirts $2.50 each, but still, great deal! πŸ˜€

And *ahem*, I shrank a size! WOO HOO! My basic shirts I bought last year are OFFICIALLY too baggy on me! And everyone, I’m just going to keep getting smaller! πŸ™‚ Here are some before and after photos! The after is me in my new shirt!

Before:

After:

shirt 2

I’m still stoked about the whole being down a size thing! πŸ˜€ This diet is working, haha. Or should I say lifestyle change? πŸ™‚

On Saturday, I went to the Spendypants Grocery Store to restock my diet food since I was getting low on food. I had to since I was tired of eating food that was not good for me all week. : ( But after Thanksgiving, I’m back on my diet and plan to keep going with it! My goal is to be 155 pounds by Christmas! I’ve got this! πŸ˜€

Money Spent on Saturday:

  • Perfect Pinch Chicken Seasoning – $3.69
  • Milk – $3.99
  • Bananas (3) – $0.96
  • Fuji Apples (2) – $1.15
  • White Mushrooms (3) – $1.01
  • Romain Lettuce (bulk size) – $3.99

Total Amount Spent:Β $14.79

Bah. I dislike going to the Spendypants Grocery Store to buy food since everything is expensive in there, but sometimes, I just don’t have a choice. : (

On Sunday, I stayed home and helped LOCMom put up the Christmas tree! After putting up the tree by myself last year, I just can’t sand putting up fake trees anymore. Especially big fake trees. If I ever get my own place in the future, I will probably just have a 4 foot fake tree and do limited decorating each year. Ah, my minimalist dream. πŸ™‚

And I just had dinner, so here is a picture of what I ate!

dinner

That salad, or hash, was about 446 calories. Yes, on my diet, I count my calories. πŸ™‚ It helps me lose weight by doing this since I was not eating as much calories as before, I found. Β O _O So if I keep this up, I’m sure to keep losing weight in the future and will someday reach my goal weight of 125 pounds! I’m currently in the upper 150 range weight wise and if I keep it up, my 155 weight goal will be reached by Christmas! Can’t wait! πŸ˜€

Money Spent On Sunday

Total Amount Spent: $0.00

So that wraps up another weekend! Today it has been rainy and cold, but tomorrow, things should clear up enough so I can walk again outside! I’m coming for you goal weight! > _<;;;

How was your weekend?
