me and Brenda....I love this pic! LOLOL

Kaley, Annie, me and Lacee!
Annie and Lacee and Brenda came back just to see me on my graduation day :) I feel loved!

This is Bobby...he's my phase 3 instructor...He's one of the most amazing teachers ever...there were quite a few great teachers at Milan... I'll miss them all.

SW: 281.8
CW: 194.2

Almost 2 lbs this week!!! 1.8 to be exact!

Lots of awesome things happened this last week.

Over the weekend, did TONS of hair....fun times!

Monday: More hair...

Tuesday: shopping with Kaley!!! She held my hand on my very first "skinny" girl shopping extravaganza! Fun times....I don't think I could have done it without her...

Wednesday: Started my final week of beauty school...

Thursday: Had my appointments with the financial aid lady for exit counseling and my appt with Career Services for my portfolio and career plans. She praised me for my portfolio! That was nice :) Aubrey did my hair...and I LOVE IT!

Friday: GRADUATED Beauty School....what an amazing feeling. I've finally completed something in my life. Yeah, sure, I graduated from high school, but even then I never stuck with any of my activities through those days. I went to college...never graduated...granted moving all over the place probably didn't help much...lol...so yeah, this was a big deal for me! I got to run through the tunnel and enjoy a day with my friends. It was nice. Chance even came up to the school to see me clock out for the last time and to see my goofy run through the tunnel! I determined that I'm super tall and it's hard to run under short peoples hands...lol...but it was all worth it. I can't wait to see where my career will take me.

So yeah, it was a good week. Part of me was really sad about leaving Milan, only because I know that some of the people that I talked to, I will probably never speak to again....only on the off chance that I run into them out in public or something...lol...

I went to the gym today for the first time in a very long time. I lasted 45 minutes. Not bad!! I did 15 minutes on the elliptical and then lifted weights the other 30 minutes. My thighs and arms are like jello...lol...pretty amusing. I'm going to have to take some protein with me to the gym if I really wanna last longer...I wanted to tan after I worked out today, but I had to decide between being able to walk out the door and drive home, or lose the rest of my energy in the tanning bed. I don't have much stamina these days. It's hard to work off of 400-800 calories/day but it's getting much easier. I figure since I'm working out, I can eat a little more....more protein of course...but I have to find a way to up those calories to make it through workouts and the day. I came home and made a yummy protein shake.

1C milk
1/2 tsp cocoa
1 tsp hazelnut s/f syrup
1/2 tsp truvia
1 scoop designer whey protein powder chocolate flavor
1TBSP peanut butter
4oz. espresso blend coffee (cooled)
8-10 ice cubes.
blend it all up and enjoy!

super yummy!

This weekend I'm headed down to Long Beach for the ISSE Expo!! Hair show!! Should be fun!

Hope you all have a wonderful week! And thanks for reading! :)

This is the man that has supported me through thick and thin...literally...lol...This is the man that was waiting at the end of the tunnel with a kiss, hug and smile. He told me he was proud of me...those were the sweetest words I've heard in a long time :)

I love you
