1. Finding out the guy you’ve been sleeping with all semester doesn’t want anything more than just sex is a great way to lose weight. Completely lost my appetite, and working out more to clear my head… Maybe I should thank him

    reblog and make a wish!

    this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)



    The last time I saw this on my dash, I didn’t think it would happen, so jokingly I wished I could go to a fun. concert.



    yay its back.

    I half jokingly reblogged this yesterday cos I thought it was a nice picture…
    and was like oh wow I only get wishes on birthdays what would I wish for?!?!?! how about gainful employment L0L

    … and like…

    I have a job now? That I never applied for? That someone just called me up and said “here, have this”? In a place I really really like?

    So like… h8ers gonna h8 or something

    This is my first post since getting back to university about two weeks ago.

    This semester is going to kick my butt, I can already tell. But boy, oh boy, my social life may beat my workload to it. I’ve been back less than two weeks and have already made some questionable choices. I was back less than 48 hours and was already drunk and high, in someone else’s bed.

    But on the bright side, I haven’t slept with anyone since, and I’ve only blacked out once so far this semester (granted, that was a hard black out before midnight…). After that night of blacking out and waking up in my bed without any idea of how I got there- or managed to put my pajamas on and take my contacts out- I woke up the next morning embarrassed and shamed. I went out and got my nose pierced, vowing that would be the change I needed to project me to changing the choices I seem to consistently make. And it seems to have worked… For the most part. I haven’t slept with anyone. I haven’t drunk texted embarrassing things to guys I don’t like when I’m sober. But I have continued to drink more than any reasonable adult should. I have gotten high more than I had all last semester.

    Baby steps, right? 

    For what it’s worth, I do feel more confident now with the nose piercing. Like a new person who doesn’t give a shit about anything. Now hopefully I can keep this attitude going and continue the streak of not sleeping with anyone. After last semester of having sex at least once every week, it’ll be a nice change to go home by myself.

    Cheers to the new year and making it a good one

    For my work out today I ran one mile, walked one mile with ankle weight, walked one mile without weights, and biked 5 miles.
    Weighed in at 162.5 lbs this morning, although that is sure to change tomorrow since I had a bit of a binge day:

    Yogurt with flax
    One serving of nut thin crackers
    Mandarin orange
    Plate of cheese nachos
    Sarma (one cabbage roll)
    Wasa cracker with peanut butter
    Two peppermint Hershey’s kisses

    UGH!! I was doing so well and threw it all away. I’m going to have to fast again tomorrow after all that nastiness :(

    Weighed in at 163.5 pounds this morning.
    Walked/jogged two miles, walked 1.5 miles with ankle weights, and walked half a mile as a cool down for a total of four miles.
    Ate a yogurt with flax
    1/2 a green pepper with dill dip
    A few cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, and carrots with dip
    One small meatball
    A cup of white bean chili
    And nut thin crackers with reduced fat peanut butter

    This morning I weighed in at 164; quite a long way to go until my goal weight, but better than I was expecting for after the holidays.
    Today I biked 10 miles, and ate a yogurt with flax, nut thin crackers and hummus, as well as a healthy white bean chili. I didn’t add any cheese or sour cream to the chili (only jalapeno juice), which added to the overall healthiness of the chili- 330 calories in one serving. Along with one beer after watching a basketball game.

    Overall today wasn’t too bad, but more than I would have liked. I was trying to stay away from alcohol for a little while, but how could I say no when Dad was paying… And it was only one. I feel bad for eating the nut thins and hummus, especially since I had an actual dinner. But I’m hoping tomorrow morning’s weigh in won’t be too depressing.

    Back to a normal food intake and workout tomorrow!

    Today was another good day for my diet and exercise. I biked ten miles before standing at work for six hours, and ate a yogurt with flax, as well as hummus and nut thin crackers. My abs even feel sore now from the ab exercises I started doing!
    I have 57 days until fešta to get into decent enough shape, and then it’ll just be maintaining that and losing weight/inches in a more stable manner.

    The second day of the new year started with a bang! An all day fast with only water, coffee, and green tea, along with a five mile bike ride and a four mile walk (one mile on incline, one flat, and two flat with ankle weights).
    I had forgotten how amazing it feels to have an empty stomach, sore legs, and a mind free from guilt. I know the weight won’t be lost immediately and my conscience won’t be clear anytime soon, but as long as I remember that being healthy is a continuous journey, I think I can continue forward with this progress.
    It’ll be a relief to be back at school with an actual gym and no pantry or fully-stocked liquor cabinet to tempt me.
