B Picture Posts (and some randoms)

Well, it's time for the 2nd round of pictures: Week B!!

First we have Business Law, the other class I'm taking right now:
This is a fun blogging topic because this is the class from hell. (And I don't say that lightly)

Our professor is spending about 25 minutes per week in this class. She doesn't respond to emails, posts, anything, and is by far the most confusing professor I've ever had. One week she'll say one thing, the next week it's totally different, and she talks down to us (on the rare occassion she acknowledges/replies to an email or post) for not reading her mind. I've been in steady communication with the Business Department Chair at BCC regarding this and hope (sincerely!) that something is happening to fix all this.

To top off the frustration, our midterm was posted last week and we were told we had through Saturday to complete it. Friday she posted an announcement saying that we needed to take the test before Midnight on Saturday. At 3pm on Saturday I couldn't take the test and neither could seven of my 15 classmates. We have yet to hear back from her about why the test was taken down early and what we can do about it.

So that's been...interesting.

Next B picture:

BOXING! (don't make fun, I wanted a pic of me wearing my new gloves before I posted this)
Last night Jason and I joined the Kickboxing Gym that Jenn and Clint have been going to. (extremefitnesskickboxing.com) It's ridiculously far (okay, 20-25 minutes away) but I loved it!!

At first I was hesitant to join because it costs a lot and I already pay for my gym membership, but Jason and I decided it would be a good way to spend time together and get fit, so we tried it. (Usually it is $75/month for unlimited classes (they have at least 3 per day), plus the cost of gloves and wrist wraps which are around $55. We were grandfathered in under Jenn and Clint's promotional membership that was $50 for the first month and free gloves and wraps - great deal, but still a lot!)

I loved how it wasn't a tae-bo hybrid class, we were actually kicking and punching bags, and that they actually taught you technique, stance, form, etc before the class started. It was HARD to keep up with but felt amazing to get cardio, resistance training, strength training and endurance work all in one.

Other random things:

I weighed in again this week and...

I'm still not winning the contest, (Clint's in 1st, Jason's in 2nd, another girl I don't know is in 3rd (we think) and I'm in 4th) but it's so nice to know that I'm actually losing weight! And after our kickboxing class last night, I think that might kick my butt into gear for another jump start. :) My whole goal for the contest was about 30 pounds, so to be halfway done only a month in is VERY encouraging - I'm excited to see what I can actually lose!

Hmm..what else...yesterday I was getting dressed for work and I couldn't find my Danskos (I seriously wear them almost every day. I get sad when I wear a brown outfit cause my Danskos are black, so I can't wear them.) and I realized that I had done the unthinkable - I had left them at Jason's house! :( I was SO sad, but since we were kickboxing last night, Jason could bring them out to me. (Thank God) I was seriously considering driving all the way out there and back to get them... :)

Oh, and I asked Jason for a brown pair for Valentine's day. ;)

I think that's it! Happy Feb 5th!
