So a little over a week ago, I was super excited because I hate a date. A date! Yaaaay!
Well come have a laugh at my expense, because it was the date from hell.
So my date and I decided that we'd have a mini cookout. I told him I'd take care of the food, and asked him to bring a bottle of vodka and whatever chaser he'd like to have with it.
So here goes the fun...
Strike 1 - he shows up two hours late.
Strike 2 - when he gets to the cookout area he is HIGH AS A KITE. (disclaimer - I don't have a major issue when people smoke weed, but NOT ON THE FIRST DATE).
Strike 3 - He brought a half pint bottle of new amsterdam vodka, and half of it was gone! Ok, if you're familiar with New Amsterdam Vodka, the 750 ml bottle is generally about $15 so it's not expensive vodka. This probably puts the half pint bottle around $7 or $8. Then you drank half of it before you even got to the date? WTF?!?!?!
There is one final strike which I'll get to in a second - but for the "date" itself, it went okay. He told me his entire life story (and he has waaaaaaaaaay too much baggage for me to deal with, even if he didn't have all these strikes against him). He told me he was nervous, that's why he showed up to the cookout high as a kite (and probably drunk). He also told me I was being "secretive" since I wouldn't spill my guts as well - ahhhh whatever. But now for the final strike...
So when it's time for this fool to leave, he gives me a sob story and asks me for $20 for gas. Am I on punked? I can't make this stuff up...
Back to the drawing board...sigh. It's kind of funny though. I should write a book about all my bad dating experiences.

I've been around here and there, but not fully committed to anything but partying all summer.
Not fully committed to eating right.
Not fully committed to reducing my alcohol intake. (Especially this one).
Not fully committed to exercising.
Not fully committed to tracking my calorie intake.
So I've been doing things, here or there...you know...might eat right three days out of seven. Might exercise three days out of seven. Might not drink three days out of seven. But I lack CONSISTENCY.
So next month I am going to work on consistency. This is my last weekend of foolishness!
Plus, I'd really like to be below 235 before the end of the year.

I read an article about how some shops (lululemon anyone)? are thinking about not carrying "larger/plus sizes" (anything above a ten) because they don't fit their "target demographic". It made me feel some kind of way...
I'm 6 feet tall. I wear a size 12 (on a very very very good day). I've never been below a size 10 since I was ten years old (the irony, LOL). People tell me all the time that I would look emaciated if I wore a size 6.
Since when is anything above a size ten considered PLUS SIZE?
Reports state that the average size in America is now a 14. But the "fat shaming" movement seems to get worse and worse as time progresses.
I'm not saying that it's ok to be complacent about weight and bad eating habits. But not everyone under the sun was meant to be a size two. And just because someone wears a size that has double digits does not automatically make them unhealthy.
So on that note, here's my thought for the day:

So I'm going on week four, and I'm still a bit swollen, but I notice every day that my midsection gets a bit smaller. This past weekend, I felt like I could really tell that I'm smaller now (plus the scale rewarded me with the number 241, which I haven't seen in over a year) - so I took some pictures. A few of them aren't the greatest pictures, but in the pictures I can tell that the kangaroo pouch is disappearing and I have something that now resembles a waist:
I'm still trying to get back into a "regular" routine, some days I'm good to go, other days I'm tired and struggling. Today is a good day. :)
I've decided in the month of June, I'm going to try and stick to mostly lean meats and veggies, very few carbs and clean eating. And of course, trying to stay away from the alcohol. I was doing this right before I had surgery and I think it worked well.
Stay tuned :)
