Life Update

This post is going to be a sort of update jumbled post. First off, happy Friday but why does it feel like Thursday to me? Probably because I have so much to do and I'll be off next week! :) I'm going camping with my entire family by the beach so that will be fun!

Eyes: First off, I went to see my optometrist. My insurance covers a glasses check-up with a $20 co-pay but since I wear contacts too I had to pay extra for that. My vision got worse, I'm now a -3.25 from a -2.75 which is not too bad but that meant I needed new glasses AND contacts. Even after my $120 insurance credit I had to pay $420 out of pocket but I got some cute Banana Republic frames and a year supply of contacts. This really makes me believe Lasik will be a good investment in the future. Maybe next time I need to renew my contact lens prescription I'll try a site like 1-800 Contacts and have them ordered online.

Life: I still have to buy a birthday gift for my friend and my stepsister. Of course their birthdays were in the beginning of July and I am totally lagging on sending them out. I don't have any time to get to the mall lately so I'm hoping tonight I will drag myself there, and maybe the BF too. Tomorrow we're going jetskiing with our friends and I'm excited! We haven't been in over a year so I can't wait to go. I'm being eaten alive by mosquito or flea bites. I can't tell, but I have about 8 bites now and they are driving me crazy!

Shopping: I haven't been buying anything but I am really wanting a lot of stuff lately. I've been eyeing LV bags, Michael Kors bags, different types of shoes, and the list goes on. I almost bought these Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses last night after seeing them for $200 cheaper than what my optometrist was selling them for but I still have to think about it. I don't have fancy sunglasses right now and I guess you can say they will protect my eyes so it would be a better investment than say a new bag right?

LSAT: LSAT class starts this Sunday which I'm not looking forward to but I have to suck it up for the next 2 months. I'll be having class for 4 hour blocks every Tuesday and Thursday and every other Saturday and Sunday. Yes I know this means I'm saying goodbye to life and summer but it will be all worth it, I think. I still need to sign up and pay for the LSAT. For some reason after I spent over $700 on my LSAT class I didn't want to shell out another $139 for the test. UGH.

Exercise: The one thing that has been consistent in my life has been working out. It balances out all the stress in my life. I look forward to it each day and can't tell you how good I feel afterwards. I took a Les Mills BodyAttack class on Monday and yesterday I went to the new pilates studio I mentioned where I got to use the reformer. I was soooo sore right after class, I'm afraid I will be buying classes after my Groupon ends. It seriously is the perfect supplement to cardio classes. I can run for a long time and not get tired but after 10 mins of pilates I was aching. I haven't taken pilates for a year so I really wanted to get back into it. I think it's worth the investment. I'll do the calculations in a separate post. Also I walk my dog on days where I can't make it to the gym and that just clears up my mind and keeps my dog healthy too.

So that's it for a little update for me...sorry this post was all over the place but I wanted to just give you guys a little LIFE UPDATE! Hope everyone's summer is going well and please feel free to share how your summer is going :)

I am desperate to get lasik. If it wasn't for my eyes being unstable I would have jump at it already. Prices for eye exam, glasses and contacts are just outrageous!

I know.. and to think you have to get contacts each year and eye exams each year. Atrocious. Not to mention how annoying it is to put contacts on and off all the timeeee!

I'm with you ladies on the pain of wearing glasses. My eye sight started to regress about 4 years ago and since it hasn't leveled out yet, I'm not a candidate for LASIK. That being said, I can't even put in contacts yet! I'm like Rachel from Friends and get all weirded out about touching my eyeball. Since I wear my frames everyday all day, I saved up for a Prada pair (they have little pink crystals down the sides) as I consider them to be like a nice piece of jewelry. Some girls have diamond earrings - I have glasses.

good luck with the LSAT classes! I've never taken any class myself, but if you want extra studying material, the PowerScore books are golden!

Sucks having to spend that amount of money on your eyesight and insurance doesn't cover half of it.

Overall though things seem to be going good for you. My summer hasn't been to bad either so no complaints from me.

I'm really envious of your discipline with your exercise regime. I need to start something myself.

I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming classes and I enjoyed the all over the place update. It's like catching up with an old friend.

I got LASIK earlier this year through a pre-tax health deduction company plan. I used to be a -6.5!

It was worth it, but maybe I shouldn't have done it with the amount of debt I had at the time.

Good luck with them LSATs!
