I am going to have to drink some serious fluids! I am retaining water like mad! I weighed in at 127.4 yesterday and this morning at 129.6! I about fell over! I talked myself down off the ledge by reminding myself that
1. I am retaining water. I have been out of bed over three hours and my ring is still tight.
2. I haven't used the "bathroom" in several days
3. My muscles are sore from PC Fit
And most of all -- IT IS NOT MY TRUE WEIGHT!
I will have to see if the trend continues. The important thing is how my clothes fit. I could be gaining weight as I gain muscle tone? That is a possibility. It is just so hard to tell because of all the loose skin that is hanging around. I can see some definition in my arms, but it is overshadowed by that nasty loose skin.
I took another class yesterday with Coach Mike, and I have to say, I was impressed by this one. I felt I got a good workout, and I was challenged. I also got the new schedule and am super excited that Paul will be taking over the Monday 10:00 slot. I am going to have to make sure to get there for that one because Paul is awesome! I am sore for days after a Paul workout.
Looks like I will mostly have Paul or Anthony according to the new schedule. I like Anthony too, but his workouts are more complicated. They seem to sometimes require more coordination that I have, but hopefully that will come in time. I am going to miss Tony's workout. His workouts were simple and brutal. He used a lot of basic moves that were killer. When you got done with Tony, you knew it!
Anyway, time to get ready for work --

We got a new coach for PC Fit - I am not sure what I think. Tyler went back to school, and Tony is only doing 1 class every other Saturday (which I can never make it for) - I had coach Mike for the first time today, and I was not impressed. The workout was not what I am used to. He is new, so I am going to give him some time to adjust. I can't even imagine how the other girls felt because I didn't even feel that challenged, and they are like super fit!
I am going to give him a chance though, and honestly, even if I don't like him, I don't have much of a choice since he is going to be teaching a lot of the classes I take.
I took my BFF out for lunch today for her birthday and we went shopping. We went to the Olive Garden for lunch. It was yummy! We just got the soup, salad and breadsticks, and an order of stuffed mushrooms to share. I didn't really eat very much, but that is ok! I left full, but even better, I got to spend time with my friend.
I don't get to see her enough and lately I have just needed a friend. I talk to lots of people, but I really needed to get out and do something with someone that didn't involve work or something like that. What I really need is an awesome night out of dancing and Jack Daniels!
The bank got all of the fraud stuff handled, so that makes me happy.
I went shopping today and bought some new clothes. I bought new underwear, a few pairs of dress pants, and a few new tops. I have a few more things to buy. All of my clothes, save for 5-6 outfits are too big. I don't want to keep any clothes that are too big because that will give me an excuse to gain weight. By only having clothes that fit, I have to keep on top of things.
Anyway, here are a few pics of outfits I bought a while ago and haven't worn.
My Grandmother Snoots bought me this lovely outfit
I bought this dress on sale for $9.99 and never had a chance to wear it.
Tattoo is looking good!

I stopped by the gas station on my way to Subway on my lunch break to throw a few dollars in my gas tank. My card was denied at the pumps several times, so I went inside and it was declined again.
I called the bank just to verify my balance, because when I left the house I had plenty of money in there. (I check my account every day) It came back with
"You total available balance is -$695.53"
I about died! I hit 0 to be connected to customer service to find out why my account is almost $700 negative!
When the rep came on the line, she started going over the charges with me, and I didn't make any of them! My account was hijacked! All total, before they were able to block the card, there was almost $700 charged - after they blocked the card, I got more emails alerting me to more fraud! All total, someone tried to charge over $2000 to my bank account.
Lucky my bank is being really good about it, and are making things right. Also lucky for me I have a stash of cash since my bank account is pretty much frozen.
In other news... I got home last night and there was a note on the inside door - "Leave the door unlocked - Buck and crew are coming to do the well"
I was woken up this morning to a construction crew jack hammering the concrete floor in the garage under my house. That was at 7:30 - I went to bed around 6:30. Lucky for me, I found a pair of ear plugs and went back to bed. I was able to sleep a few more hours.
I think that is all for now

We went to a BBQ Saturday night at my Boyfriend's friend's house. I get along well with most of his friends, except there is one couple that never makes me feel welcome.
The girl is nice to me when my boyfriend is around, but shoots me dirty looks, rolls her eyes at me, won't talk to me and is just a general B to me. Her husband, who is the alpha male of the group, does things to instigate.
For example, he says things like "Why won't you let him have a motorcycle"?
I think I finally set him straight on that! That he doesn't have a motorcycle because of me, he doesn't have one because he is too cheap to buy one. Then he tells stories about the times when they used to go out and get drunk. Honestly speaking... I don't want to hear those stories.
First, I can't relate to any of them. Most of them take place in preppy bars that I wouldn't be caught dead in. I don't find any of it funny because I wasn't there and it just sounds stupid to me.
Second, I don't care to hear some of the stories, especially ones that take place in some sleazy strip club. It just isn't stuff that you talk about in front of someone's girlfriend.
He seems to talk about things he knows get under my skin. I can see he does it to try to cause a fight between us, and honestly he usually succeeds at it.
So yeah --
Of course I am always on the defense with these people, and my anxiety level is usually sky high. I am overly sensitive and react poorly to the situation. I usually have a bit of a psycho moment, and storm off because he makes me upset.
So, I have decided - I am going to discuss it with my boyfriend, and if he is ok with it, I will invite all of his friends over for a picnic. They don't even have to bring anything. I will make all of the food. The only thing I ask is that they bring their own beer/wine. I will provide all of the food. I guess as a way to say that I am willing to play nice. I am even going to leave my friends out of it so that I am forced to interact with them.
Anyway, I think that is all for now
