In case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to and how my trip went, it was good 😉
I actually didn’t realize how much I’d needed it until I got there. I had TONS of fun. My friends and I went to a club and apparently some cute guy wanted to dance with me but was too shy and was quite crestfallen when some other guy did. My best friend told me to go back and talk to him but I thought he was joking… Until I heard the same story from two other people 😦

As for pre-trip weight loss… sigh. I didn’t prepare myself well enough for things like temptations, pitfalls, setbacks and it made me realize that I never do. So I’ve been working on that. Mint gum for when I’m bored. Watermelon for when I’m craving. K-dramas and Candy Crush for when I’m sad or anxious. Dance music when I’m happy 🙂 I haven’t figured out how to handle peer pressure yet 😛 But I will. I’m at my worst with my friends.

During the trip I ate a ton, but I feel like what I ate was balanced with the constant walking and fighting against the waves and doing the zip-line and ropes course (cute guys there too, they were all different types of European with accents and everything, but there was one who was blonde and had pretty eyes who was very much in my personal space… sigh, I liked him).

But I’m back on my diet. I’ve been eating watermelon for dinner this week. I’ve wanted it since the beginning of summer but didn’t indulge because I thought it was expensive. I dance in the morning and run/walk in the evening (though it’s so humid in GA right now).

And in case you were looking at this picture and wondering why I’m trying to lose weight, and I actually think I look decent from the front (and I like my fat thighs, though I think I’m deluding myself into thinking my stomach is flatter than it is 😉 ). It’s the back I’m concerned with. It’s also the reason I’m wearing a shirt at the beach 😛 I have rolls. Back rolls. Three of them and I’m way too embarrassed to post a pic of them. But they’re there and bug the crap out of me. And my body needs work elsewhere too. But mostly, I’m ashamed of my fat back.

So, that was my trip and my new friends are planning for a cruise sometime in January and I vow to be ready!

Pound a Day Weeklong Challenge: Day 3 & 4

Day 3

Welp, no progress to report. I still weighed 142.6 today. But, that doesn’t really mean anything. There have been times when I didn’t lose a single pound one day but end up losing two the next day. I could just be backed up :P. So, no fretting here. I’d only be pissed if I’d gained weight.

Day 4

I weighed 141.8 today! For some reason, it doesn’t mean anything because I’ve seen the number on the scale before. I won’t really get excited until I hit the 130s. I’m also behind by a pound… Then again, I did go from 145 to 142.6 initially. I still wanted to see daily progress I guess. With tomorrow being my birthday, I actually had my birthday meal today with Golden Corral for breakfast. It was awesome and I ate sooo much. But I wasn’t fall-over full and I let that be my only meal for the day (besides a tiny bowl of cereal later on).
Today I’m going to try two laps (2.2 miles each) at the park. I’m still taking my Slimquick and since I’m in GA (where humidity is king), I’m waiting for the sun to drop some before I go walking. Yesterday, I didn’t exercise because I wanted to see if I could forego it and still lose weight and it worked. But today, I ate so many carbs (french toast, pancakes, hash browns) that I need to go walking at least.

My predictions for tomorrow are actually pretty dismal. I can’t see losing anything, but I’ll try to keep somewhat optimistic 😛
