Let the games begin..

Well, another summer has come to a close. Was pretty busy for a while but the last few weeks have been great. I finished up my summer classes with 3 A's so i am still holding my 4.0 since returning to EIU.

After my classes finished, Erin and I headed to NC to visit some family i have out there, was so good to see G'ma, Aunts: Ruth, Rose, Mary, and Ginny, and Uncles: Keith, Steve, and John. It also didn;t hurt that we spent 2 days in Myrtle Beach. All in all it was a nice relaxing week after working my butt off for summer classes... well maybe not my butt, maybe a part of my gut though.

Speaking of Guts.. I bought a Wii, and no surprise, it told me I am a fat-ass. (you know its a bad sign when your gaming console is telling you that you are too fat.) So I have decided that I am going to try my best to work out atleast 5 times a week. The running i had planned for this summer just didn't jive with my schedule nor the fact it was stupidly hot outside. Currently I weigh 217 lbs and it is my goal to get under 200 in 2 months (so far about 2 weeks in and i started at about 220). I should be able to do it as long as I keep my mind set. I am making better decisions when it comes to what I am eating (especially foods high in fiber) too.

Something else i did this summer was get the old colon scoped. I'm the last rice kid to get it done. I guess i can be a bit stubborn, who knew... Everything turned out fine. final tally 4 polyps and all turned out to be benign. so no cancer for me. Considering my family history they would like to see me back every 3 years to make sure it stays that way.

Erin and I are also moved into a new Apt in Charleston. this one is more than 2x the size of the old one and once we finishing unpacking and getting stuff where we want it, we will give a little tour like we did for the last one. :)

Anyway, classes start again tomorrow and i am looking forward to getting that much closer to graduation. On the Plus side, i already have my financial aid stuff finished and the appeal is in to be reviewed, so i can just relax and focus on my classes and erin.

Now I am going to go and enjoy my last day of summer.
