Knee update

Monday, February 21, 2011

I walked for 45 minutes today and my knee didn't hurt! YAAAAAAAY!!!!!

The boyfriend (soon to be ex) has a paper run and I offered to help out and do a section today (or else he will NEVER get it done). I kept up a good pace and worked up a sweat. Considering I had to stop every minute to hand out a paper I think I did good. 150 calories burned too!

Its been 5 days since my last tub of ice cream

Sunday, February 20, 2011

and I'm going strong. Still at the same weight (bouncing around in the same kilo, I hate that!!) so at least I haven't gained!

The boyfriend is still deciding what he wants. I know what I want. Just biding my time until I can leave. Moving back in with my parents will suck, but I will be able to save a tonne of money and hopefully will be able to go on my OE once I graduate, which is my dream trip and something I won't be able to do with my boyfriend. Being single will suck, and I'm scared of feeling alone (and that my boyfriend will move on, that will kill me) but it is what has to happen. I can't live my life knowing that the person I love doesn't love me back. I deserve better. I deserve someone who will love me and who wants to spend their life with me, travelling the world and seeing everything. That or I'll be alone forever...It could happen. Where do people meet people anyway? Russell and I met at school, so I actually have no idea where people meet. Probably something I should worry about in the long term, not right now.

Moving on.

I have 6 days off work, after spending my entire summer working 40-60 hour weeks. Well deserved, I think. I plan on not doing much, to be honest. I will try and get to the pools a few times. I just want to enjoy not having to do anything. I'm so tired.

    Yes, you most certainly do deserve to be loved in return, and I am glad you realize that. Don't worry about where to meet people...you'll probably meet The One when least expecting it.

Enjoy your 6 days off!

    Good on you for pursuing what you want - the stay with your parents doesn't have to be permanent - it sure helps with saving money, and they may be just the support you need once you do leave. Enjoy your time off!

    You do deserve better. Yep, moving back in with parents will suck, I have had to do it before but you get through it. At least they will let you back in!

Pulling myself together

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Eating a tub of chocolate ice cream isn't going to help matters, so I am going to get back on the bandwagon tomorrow.

Breakfast - Toast and marmite
Lunch - 2 WW pitas with 2T of hummus
Snacks - 2 small apples, quaker bar, small pack of burger rings (gotta treat yourself!)
Dinner - TBD but probably some lean meat and veggies.

Gotta get this thing back on track. Make this man realise that he is throwing away a hottie!

Saw Burlesque tonight. I now want to be a burlesque dancer. I can't sing, dance or fit into the costumes, but those are all minor details.

    You're right, the junk food won't solve anything. Good job getting back on track. You're worth it whether that man realizes it or not!

Hi guys. Thought I'd update you on my relationship situation/my new diet!

On Friday my boyfriend of 5 years revealed that the reason he really doesn't want to get married is because he doesn't think I am right for him. Says he loves me but we want different things in life. Mainly it is because I want to travel. I'm not content sitting in NZ my whole life, I want to see the world!! He is happy to sit on his computer for his whole life.

In the YEARS that I have spent expressing my desire for travel he has never once spoken up. If he had we probably wouldn't still be together. But after 5 years it is hard to break up over something like travel. Kids? Yeah. Religion? Sure. But the desire to go on holiday? Not so much.

He has decided he needs to "think about things". I told him not to take too long because I want to be able to get on with my life if he decides that I'm not the one for him. Of course I'm hoping that I am the one for him because I love him, but if he does want to break up then I'll be devistated but I'll get over it. Get myself a nice forgien boy... (Currently taking applications...)

So thats my life right now.

As for the weight loss...Well apparently NOT eating makes you put on weight too. Who knew? I'm still bouncing around in the same kilo so at least I haven't had a major gain. Still not terribly hungry but I'm making myself eat a couple of times a day to get some calories in.

Exercise...Nada. Running and walking is out. Biking is fine but I would need a stationary bike or a gym pass, neither of which I can afford. Swimming is allowed but I need a timetable worked around the tides or a pool pass, which is affordable but....Its such a hassle. You have to change and shower and stuff. Lazy me. Russell and I are planning on going kayaking next week if we are still together, so that should be fun and a good workout. Gotta start thinking outside the box!!! Suggestions welcome!

A new diet that really works!

Friday, February 11, 2011

True story. Its called the "We might be breaking up" diet. What you do is have a discussion with your boyfriend where he reveals that while he loves you he has doubts about if you are the one for him, and tells you that marriage and a life together, the one you had been talking about for the past 5 years, is pretty much out of the question.

What follows is extreame nausea and the lack of desire to eat anything accompanied by worry because you don't know if your relationship will last the next 2 hours and you have forgotten how to fuction without this person in your life.

The end

    Do remember your own value is not tied to someone else thinking you are "good enough".

If he can't see how amazing you are, then it is his loss. Hugs & hope for easier times ahead.
