I am working until 7am. I have a lazy Sunday planned.
I am going to sleep in, and it is going to be wonderful!
Then, after I get up, and have my tea, I will start laundry. While my laundry is washing/drying, I am going to watch The Green Mile on AMC while playing on the internet.
I will make my work lunches for the next few days. I have a craving for hamburgers, so that is what I am going to make. I planned on hamburger patties and glazed carrots. I think that will make a fabulous meal.
I eat the majority of my meals at work when I am there. The only meal I eat at home is breakfast.
For lunch, I am going to pack Campbell's Kickin Buffalo Chicken soup, which I add a tablespoon of reduced fat feta to in order to make it extra tasty.
For snacks, I will have greek yogurt and a banana w/ peanut butter.
At 8pm, I will tune into Once Upon a Time. At 9pm, I will take a bath and soak in the hot tub. At 10pm, 666 Park Ave is on. 11-midnight, I will write a letter to my friend Scott, who has a slight run in with the law, and had to go away for a while. Midnight - 1am, is reading. 1 am is lights out.
All in all it sounds like a pretty awesome day to me.
Monday I meet with my trainer. I can't wait!

Today the boyfriend and I did a little shopping around for a new television. Last week, our set in the living room took a crap, and we have to get a new one.
So, today, we decided to go shopping and see what is out there.
After doing some research, we have decided we want
1. 42-55 inch
2. Smart TV
We found several that fit the bill at three different stores. We are going to look around a little more and then decide.
I am having a hard time spending the money. Ugh... I am so cheap!
We went to Wendy's for lunch today, and I got the usual 1/2 baja salad, no guac, no dressing. I usually eat a little less than half of that, but it is sooooooooooooooo good!
I made the mistake of stopping at Starbucks and getting a Skinny Mocha. I drank about 1/4 of it. Made me sick and I barfed.
Tomorrow is supposed to be nice - I may go for a bike ride or just go to the gym

Today is a lot better day than yesterday. All is right with the world again, and I am in a happy place. It isn't often I get ticked off like that, but on rare occasions, it happens. I feel better now.
My pants don't need ironed. For that, I am thankful.
I had an awesome workout today. I did various free weight and body weight exercises, then finished up with cardio intervals. I felt great! Actually, I am still feeling great.
Support group tonight was great. They were filming people in various stages of their journey and having them talk about their experiences. It was great to watch and listen to these people. Truly inspiring. It has really helped me refocus on what I need to do!!
I took half a vacation day, so I don't have to go in to work until later on tonight.
All if right in CortneyLand

I don't really have any other word for it...
I started off the morning by voting. That was irratating in itself. I have never seen such a poorly managed polling station. Those old ladies (bless them) are in no hurry for anything. Luckily, I was only 15 mins late to the library.
My dentist appointment from yesterday got canceled and moved to today, so I had to go do that. I hate the dentist. I hate getting my teeth cleaned. I hate the sound and the feeling of them scraping my teeth. It gives me the willies!!
I had a few hours to kill before Step class, so I went to the mall. I wandered around to various stores and felt lost. I don't know how to explain it. This is the first time I have been able to wear normal sizes in my adult life, and I don't really know where to start. Places like Ross, Walmart and Target seem a lot less overwhelming to me than stores that specialize in clothes like American Eagle or Aeropostle. I feel silly asking the sales people. I mean, I know that is what they are there for, but most of them are teenagers or collage ages kids who are just there to fold sweaters and run a cash register.
"excuse me, I just lost 100 pounds, and I have never been able to shop in your store, so, can you help me because I don't know where to start"
I can imagine the looks I would get!
Then, I stopped at the pizza shop to get my boyfriend a couple slices for his dinner tonight, and I don't know what happened! Ok, I know what happened, but I am still not sure why logic didn't kick in.
I didn't plan well today, and woke up too late to eat breakfast, so I ate a Emerald Breakfast on the Go! instead of a wholesome breakfast. Then, I was in such a rush to leave this morning I didn't even think about packing a lunch and ended up having to eat a crappy Lean Cuisine I left in the library freezer. Normally, I like lean cuisine, but this one sucked. I didn't eat very much of it.
On the way to the dentist, I finished my water and was out.
So, long story short, I was not prepared, I let myself get too hungry, and I made a spur of the moment decision to have buffalo chicken pizza. I only ate about half of it, and then I stopped and tossed it out the car window into the side of the road. I wanted to slap myself for it!
I am not upset that I ate the pizza because it was pizza, but rather I am upset because I wasn't prepared and I didn't plan ahead for the situation.
Then I get to step class, and the usual instructor isn't there but some other woman is. She was doing all of this stuff that was seriously so complicated I was seriously afraid I would fall and break something. So, I just ran up and down on my step when she did all of that. It was only my second ever step class, and I don't think it was a very good one. Thankfully Barb will be back next time and I will be able to keep up (sort of) with what is going on.
I decided then that I wanted to make meatloaf for my work lunches the next few days. I also decided that mixing in a can of diced tomatoes would make it awesome. WRONG!! It made it a pile of mush. So, I threw that out and thankfully had chicken in the freezer and the stuff to make Sweet and Sour chicken.
Then, my mom gave me some awesome dress pants in SIZE 10!! They are a little long, so I will need to get them hemmed. The problem? I think they need ironed. I don't iron. I don't own an Iron. I do not know how to use an Iron. That and I have washed them twice and they still smell like smoke. I am not washing them again! That is why I hate to get anything from my parents house. Everything reeks of smoke. After I quit, I had a hard time dealing with it. The smell was just disgusting. Hopefully though, the pants work out because they are really nice.
I think that is all for now

Ugh, I am feeling ravanous this morning. I feel like I could devour everything in sight. My co-worker stopped and got us all breakfast sandwiches from McDonalds. Ok, so I am eating a breakfast burrito... sue me! I guess the worst that can happen is I will barf from it. I guess it doesn't count that I picked the sausage out of it...
