The Big Day....

Yesterday, Mummy and I filled out my application for The Crown College of the Bible. Every time she clicked the "Next" button, her stomach flipped and I got even more excited. She was sad because I am her baby and no parent is ever fully ready to send their baby off to college, especially when that college is a 17 hour drive away from home. my mom and I are extremely close so I know that this will be hard for both of us. Even though it will be hard, I am still SOOOOOOO excited about going to Crown in the Fall. I just wish that this year would go by quickly! Tommorrow, I am bringing three reccomendation forms to church. One has to be filled out by my pastor and the other two have to be filled out by general friends that are not related to me. I will probably have my youth director fill out one and and I'm not sure about the other one. I might get the couple that is over our junior high program to fill it out. I will ask them to send it in on Monday if possible, because Crown can not do anything with my application until they recieve the reccomendation forms. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Oh, also, last night I dreamed that I was at Crown for registration and dorm assignments. LOL I must be excited about it!

I think that I need to make a daily schedule. If I do not have a schedule, I will not be able to focus and get everything accomplished as planned. With meals, I will put what I can eat.
The Daily Schedule of HRH Caitlyn Mae
  • 7 AM - Wake up, do morning hygiene regimen, and do morning devotions.
  • 8 AM - Make and eat breakfast. (2 bread, 1 protein, 1 fruit, 1 fat, 1 milk)
  • 8:30 AM - Walk with the Leslie Sansome Walk Away the Pounds 2 or 3 mile video
  • 9 AM - Clean the kitchen, bedroom, and do regular chores.
  • 10 AM - Practice the piano
  • 10:30 AM - Work on my blog and my novel, "My Own Meadow"
  • 11 AM - Do whatever else I can do to be productive!
  • 12 PM - Make and eat lunch. (2 breads, 2 proteins, 1 vegetable, 1 fat)
  • 1 PM - 5 PM - Dependant on the day
  • 5:30 - Help Mummy start dinner
  • 6:30 - Eat Dinner with my family. (2 proteins, 1 bread, 1 vegetable, 1 fruit, 1 fat)

I am very excited about this meal plan. It is going to have to be a lifestyle change, but I know that I can do it! I plan on using this blog as a source of encouragement for myself. I feel that if I put my thoughts out there I will be able to stick to them easier.

AdvoCare, Day 1....

Okay, so I started my vitamins today. I took three CorePlex pills this morning and then later put the powder from three Carb-ease capsules into a small glass of apple cider and took them. Here is what I've learned today: When putting a powder into a cold liquid to take it, NEVER LET IT SIT THERE! Drink it as fast as possible or else a bunch of the powder will form on the bottom of the glass and taste horrible! The drink itself was okay, but when I got to the bottom, I h ad to force myself not to vomit. I think it will be a lot better in a hot tea or even a glass of warm water. Over all, my first day of this was pretty easy.

New Years...... GOALS!

Don't you hate when you can't think of anything in your life that is blog worthy? I haven't been feeling well enough to do any good baking (plus it would be disgusting for a sick person to even step into a kitchen) and I haven't really picked up a new hobby. (We'll I've gotten back into crochet, but that's not all that interesting.) What should I do? This year that has just begun marks a new chapter in my life's journal (My life's blog, if you will) and I truly need to become more interesting. I sadly failed at all of the goals that I set at the beginning of 2009, but I beleive that this year will be different. As I have mentioned before, this fall I will be starting college at The Crown College of the Bible in Powell, Tennessee (Thankfully, most people just call it Crown or conversations would be a lot longer there.). This year, I am not making a plan that by the end of next year I will be ashamed of. I have decided to set a period of eight months for my goals to be fulfilled. In August, I leave for Crown and I would like to be a LOT slimmer. I also would like to be more "put together". I have a bad habit of not caring what condition my room is in and not being very prim and proper, and I am becoming fed up with it. My room is now clean and it looks RATHER nice. I plan on keeping it that way for a long, long time.
Today I started taking AdvoCare vitamins as part of my weight loss plan. I am taking their "CorePlex" pills three times a day. Unfortuantly, the pills in their packs are not completely vegetarian, so I cannot take them. I will, though, be able to take a pill called "Carb-ease". Although this is in a gelatin capsule, I will be able to take it apart and sprinkle the vitamin powder into food making it completly vegetarian. My goal for now is to be 3 or 4 dress sizes smaller by the day I leave for Crown in August. That seems like a very good goal for me at this time. Please pray that I will stick to this plan!
