No weigh-in

I went a little overboard with the food Thursday night and yesterday, so I decided to skip WI. I know I should just suck it up, but I'm limited on funds and can't afford the $15 right now. Plus I knew it would be a false gain (ie. I'd gain a ton more than actually possible, like 3 lbs, which means I'd have eaten 10, 500 calories over my limit the past 2 days, and that clearly didn't happen). Anyways, I realized immediately how shitty I felt and how I needed structure. STRUCTURE. I live for being organized and having plans, and the WW plan is one that I absolutely need to adhere to. So let's just say I gained 1 lb and leave it at that.

Oh shit.

I have an exam next Saturday at 8:30am. My meeting is at 9:30am. Shit, shit, SHIT. I just realized that. ARGH. Okay, time to buckle down this week. I'll just try and weigh myself at home. It won't be that accurate because my scale is a piece of crap, but I'll try. I hate missing WIs for something stupid like an exam. Stupid summer course...

3 more weeks until school! 3 more weeks to look even more fabulous than I do right now! I was hoping to break into the 150s but I feel like that's a bit of a longshot now. But I'm going to try to get as close as humanly possible! Even if I hit 160 on the nose, I'd be happy! I'm still on the right track!

Anyways, I'm off to go shopping, and then go donate blood. Fun stuff.

Not sure if I'm liking this whole blogging thing anymore. It's been hard to get back at it, and I feel like no one reads it and I get no feedback, so why bother?

Meh... maybe it's just me having a bad day.

I am spending my night studying for my exam, worth 30%, that I'm writing next Saturday morning.

And I had an awful day at work picking up the slack for some guy who is a total dud and doesn't know the meaning of hard work.

Re: Friday's post

I told my friend about this, and she checked his profile. She didn't say there was anything bad on it, but she was looking at the pics of him and his previous-ex now-girlfriend and the first thing she said was, "They're both getting chubby, so don't feel bad."

Is it bad that that made me laugh and feel a bit better? I know that's a horrible thing for me to think, but it's the first thing that came to mind.

Best.. Snack. EVER.

This was my afternoon post-gym snack today.

Two dill pickles (halved), cucumber slices, broccoli, 3 oz cheddar cheese, 5 cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuit crackers (they are to DIE for), and 3 tbsp of country herb dip. Total of 6.5 points. Soooo YUMMY! And crunchy. It definitely satisfied my need for a crunchy snack.

I was down 2.4 lbs at weigh-in which I was thrilled about! Usually I never lose over 2 lbs in a week. It's more like 1.4 or 1.6 lbs. I guess the Wendie Plan did work then, so I'm trying it again this week, meaning that I get to eat 44 points today, plus APs.

Speaking of APs, I had a great run at the gym, and earned 5 APs. My points have dropped, so the 40-minutes of running I did today used to earn be 6 APs but now I only get 5. Boo. I hate losing points, but it's good I suppose because it means I'm losing weight!

EXCITING NEWS ... only 6 more lbs and I've lost ALL of my freshman weight. YAAAAAAY! I'm sooo freakin' excited! It's been a lot of hard work, but it feels so so SO GOOD, I can't even tell you. This year I'm just looking forward to being healthier and happier and a lot of fun with friends, enjoying the single life! It's gonna be great!

Somebody stop me

I blocked my asshole of an ex on Facebook. His profile is public, and I am fighting the urge to unblock him and check his profile to see if he has written anything horrible about me. I don't know what is compelling me to feel like this, after how he treated me... horribly. Somebody just stop me. I'm trying to erase him from my life, and forget about how much pain he caused me, and I know that checking his profile will just make me go backwards when I'm trying to push forwards onto bigger and better things.

Even still, I'm determined to make this school year the best ever.

I'm healed!


Okay, so today was a really good day for me. I went to work, and it was raining like CRAZY outside, so we couldn't cut grass. We stayed for 3 hours and then left work at 10am. So I got home, got dressed, and then went back to Forever 21 to shop some more. HAHA. I bought 4 shirts/short dresses and 2 belts. YAY! I loooove that store. One of the dresses I got was a SMALL. Noooo way! I'm going to have the coolest new wardrobe when I go back to school! :0)

After shopping, I had some lunch and went off to the gym. I really didn't want to go, but my leg was feeling so much better that I just had to. It was a GREAT run! I didn't get crazy out-of-breath like last time, and my leg felt fine. I guess that heating pad I put on it last night really worked! Plus I felt really fit and skinny after. Hehehe :0)

And after the gym and a nice shower, I went tanning. I'm trying to get rid of my farmer's tan by tanning the rest of my body. I only have like 4 more weeks to tan and then I'm off to school.

OMG, school is in 4 weeks! YIKES. I'm sooo excited! I'm just nervous for my RA training, and I hope that my students will like me. I'm not looking forward to crazy middle of the night fire alarms though ... they go on constantly for HOURS during the first month or two of school. And they're loud as hell! It's going to suck.

Anyways, I'm really excited for WI on Saturday. I hope it's a good one! :0)
