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 :)
