I had a moment of weakness last night around 11:00 pm. I decided “to hell with my diet” and had 4 mozzarella sticks, an order of chili cheese tots, and like 3 onion rings. It could have been a lot worse I know, but even though I was already at my calorie limit makes it hard to not beat myself up over it.
I went and saw Team Starkid last night with my roommate PJ in Kansas City after I said goodbye to my boyfriend, who was off to work. His anniversary surprise did not go to plan as I had imagined: I got the wrong shirt size (I’m an idiot, how could I have done that?) and he told me he didn’t want to sleep with the blanket I made him because it’s small. Ugh. I put so much thought into all those presents and it didn’t go to plan. I left him the instructions to find everything when he woke up and he ended up sleeping really late so our time together was very limited (Woke up around 2, had to work around 5.) He didn’t do it right away and didn’t seem interested. It sucked for me. I failed on his presents, he seemed less than interested, and we got all of about 2 hours to spend together on our actual anniversary. I also made a list of 100 reasons why I loved him, but I don’t think he’s even read it.
I feel as if I have hit the ground running today at a full sprint, metaphorically. It feels good. Despite the fact that I did not go to bed at a reasonable time (hello, three am.) I still woke up at a reasonable time and have the whole day at my disposal. I realize that I truly hate sleep. I am much too active to do that. Why do we even have to sleep? Can’t I just stay awake forever?
Daily Question: What is your current weight? What do you want to weigh after 30 days?
Answer: I currently weigh 146.4 lbs, which is the highest I have ever weighed in my entire life. I would like to see an eight pound loss this month, clocking me in at 138.4 lbs. I feel as if this is a reasonable loss following the two pounds per week guideline, and having this be the official plunge into my diet. The first few weeks always seem to bring the most loss.
