Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful weekend!
Mine was awesome…as weekends always seem to be!
Friday night, I hung out with my beloved ex-swim team. So sad to be a retiree! It’s definitely bitter sweet as I have mentioned, and I felt like an oldie with everyone there. We watched Baby Mama and had some popcorn. And by watching the movie, I really mean we gossiped with the sounds of Tina Fey in the background. Swimmers seem to be full of gossip! 😉 And if you haven’t seen that movie, pleaseee do it!!! I demand that you do. It is hysterical!
Saturday, I headed to the BFs house for a day full of parties! First, we headed to his dad’s work for a employee thank you/open house party. His dad works at an energy plant, and it was awesome to see how natural gas is made into energy. The food was delicious, and we got to take a tour of the plant. I even got a great picture of me in a hard hat and safety glasses as we toured the plant!
Not only was it his work party, but it was also the BF’s dad’s birthday! So obviously another party was necessary! Their whole family got together for some steamed crabs and shrimp (as well as cake, brownies, and ice cream! 😉 )
While I am not much for seafood, I tried a little bit of the crab. Needless to say, I am still not a seafood lover, but at least I was a little adventurous!
Today, the BF headed back to Shippensburg with me, and we tackled some household chores. Before we got to Ship, though, we stopped at PetSmart. It was adoption day, and it took a lot of persuading for me not to buy another kitten. We then cleaned and changed the litter in cutie pie Geno’s box, took the air conditioner out of my window, and made some dinner for some hungry college boys.
This weekend was full of eating, which made me feel a little blahhhh. I have been having a lot of issues feeling comfortable with my weight recently. In high school, I was at least 20 pounds lighter than I am today. I have added two sizes to my jeans, and I just feel uncomfortable with the way my body is. I know what the problem is…I have no self-control when food is within my general area.
I have made a vow to myself to start paying better attention to what I am putting into myself. If I have to write down everything that enters into the endless pit that is my stomach, then so be it. I just need to make myself comfortable in my own skin. And maybe in the process, I will stop looking at others and saying “wow, I wish my body looked like hers!” My goal is to fit back into the clothes I used to. I was on a roll and lost 5 pounds, but these past few weekends full of getaways and family have been nothing but delicious (which is anything but helpful to someone watching what she eats). As a result, the five pounds are back with a vengeance.
I am going to try and start tweeting what I eat more often and posting more pictures of my meals to try and hold myself accountable, so be on the lookout. Those of you who have lost weight over the years, can you give me some tips? I just can’t cope with the way I feel these days. Not only am I sluggish, but I feel trapped by my love of food and my lack of willpower. Do they teach classes in willpower? How do I get enrolled???
Any suggestions on weight loss would be great!
Stories about your weekend would also be great!
Well, I am off to catch up on posts from the weekend and hit the books for the rest of the night…productivity HERE I COME!
