1. I have been working out fairly consistently since around New Year’s and I still have not seen a difference on the scale or in my pants. Yes, we’re talking about this AGAIN. I might be seeing a difference in my face, but it could also be wishful thinking and the fact it’s too cold for the fat to expand. Haha JK! Most of me understands there’s a certain level of “You didn’t get this way in a day” work to be done and I KNOW “Abs are made in the kitchen”, but it’d be nice to see SOME type of advancement a month into things. Here’s what I have noticed: 1) I am sleeping better 2) I am getting hungry more often and starting to ‘crave’ healthy foods. AKA apples and salad instead of chocolate. 3) I can maintain exercise longer. Before 45-60 minutes would kick my butt, now I can do 2 or more hours of stuff in a day.
2. It’s always nice to have peer heroes. Right? One of my girlfriends on FB posted the end of a relationship today (well more like FB announced it loudly for her) and in her comments she noted how she used to think of a break up as a “failure” now she looks at all relationships as successes because she always learns something in the experience. I was so touched by this sentiment I decided to try the logic in my own life. Suddenly I felt a lot better and a lot more free from my past. However this didn’t stop me from emailing the boy I like for one more shot at connection. He’s moving to Youngstown, and I made a comment about how we were going to stop talking when he left. He’s 100% making the right choice for him, but I am selfish and don’t want him to leave. The commute wouldn’t be bad, but since he’s mister practical serious face I can’t tell if he “likes” me or not and I just can’t keep guessing and hoping. I just have to remember if it doesn’t end the way I want, it isn’t a failure, it’s a successful learning experience.
On a lighter note, let’s look at this….yes…let’s….
