Sugar Addict

"I think I'll give up sugar for another month starting July 1st." --Thought as I was finishing off a giant bag of coconut m&m's...

I don't know what it's been lately, but my sugar cravings are out of control!! Don't worry, I haven't done much damage; I actually kept losing weight after I started eating sugar again earlier this year and am weighing in at a weight I haven't seen since high school. Still, this sugar thing needs to be better controlled!

So once again this year I'm taking a month long hiatus from sugar. Same rules apply as the last time. Why wait until July? It's easier to remember when I start the goal if it's on the 1st, I'm going on vacation next week, and will also be celebrating my birthday in a few days. But I am looking forward to July- I love the way I feel when I eat healthy.

The Years Fly By

Monday I had a little anniversary- I've been flying for one year! I can't believe how quickly time has passed! I look forward to many many more years in the air.

The Birthday Wishlist

I kind of miss the days where making a list of things I want was totally acceptable (i.e. Christmas Lists/Letters to Santa when I was a kid). At the risk of sounding selfish or what have you, I decided I wanted to make a wishlist for my birthday. Or whenever. No, I'm not asking or expecting you to get me anything at all for my birthday, it's mainly stuff I'd get for myself if I wasn't so dedicated to spending my money on my aerial acrobatics classes. =) 

So, in no particular order, I would like...

1. A massage at The Massage Garage
2. A car wash - inside and out!
3. My car's burnt out reverse light replaced
4. Gift cards to Target, JC Penny, H&M, Old Navy, etc. I really want new clothes. Especially since the majority of my pants are now too big for me.
5. Money/gift cards for Hollywood Aerial Arts so I can take even more classes; I'd love to add a 4th class to my weekly routine
6. Two area rugs - one for my living room and one for my bedroom
7. My beautiful red couch picked up from my cousin's house in Las Vegas and delivered to my apartment!
8. Curtains/Blinds in both bedrooms, in the dining room, and in front of the sliding door to the porch. I actually refuse to put money into this - I think it's something my landlady should do.
9. Dinner at The Melting Pot. I have never eaten there and always wanted to.
10. DVDs- I need some new movies on my shelf
11. iTunes gift cards
12. A queen sized bed with a new bed set and sheets
13. A shopping spree at Sephora
14. Jewelry. Mainly small earrings - I hate going without earrings and can't wear big ones while flying through the air
15. A pedicure
16. Magnetic nail polish in a variety of colors
17. A foam roller
18. A car charger for my iPhone
19. My own aerial tissu, lyra, and a place to rig them
20. A new bike - preferably a beach cruiser with a medium/large wire basket on the front
