I paid for, and ate, pizza last night. Am I well aware that I'm going out to eat tonight? You bet. Am I well aware that I'll be eating like a total piglet/elephant/bear combined tomorrow? Oh absolutely. Did that stop me? Nope!
Ok, ok. Not going to get mad at myself. Really. I'm not. I don't think. I'm not sure who I'm doing a worse job of convincing, you or me.
I hate to waste money, I do. I'm a Masters student and I make very little on the side. But...
I'm throwing away the rest of the pizza. I realize there are starving children in Africa, but I'm pretty sure I can't ship the rest of this pizza to them and you know... I'm not going to eat it. Don't get me wrong. I want to eat it, but I'm not going to because I'm going out tonight and eating like an animal tomorrow.
This blog is here so that the next time I almost have a pizza cave, I can check this and go, Oh Hell No! It's a waste of money, much less the calories - although, honestly, if I really want the pizza, the money is going to be the bigger argument. But, if I still really want the pizza after this type of weekend - fine. But go somewhere, walk in, get one slice, walk out, and eat it elsewhere. There is no reason I needed to order me, myself, and I a whole freaking pie.
One of those weeks... Again...

I am a Master Candidate in Women's Studies, so of course, I hear about all the girl power crap... I mean... stuff.
But this chick... HILARIOUS. This being a healthy eating site, I figured I should share her clip on diets.
She covers stuff from chocolate, to diamonds, to periods, to Mrs. Obama's arms, to you name it. Amazing! Just short enough to hold your attention and not be obnoxious, just long enough to get the point across. The mix of media also makes my day.
So enjoy :D

I watched this, after a sobering weight gain weigh-in (which is supposed to be tomorrow, but I needed the kick in the ass for today) and feeling somewhat bad about myself.
I've never needed to be "beautiful" or "hot", but there are always those doubts and seeing ads don't always help.
This video, for all age groups, not just the young gals, is necessary. A powerful reminder that we all have our own beauty and those models have theirs exploited in a way that only perpetuates negative body image.

Starting Sunday, with the start of school, I was going to be amazing. I had a new schedule, so bam, includes everything from eating right and working out.
I have yet to do anything other than show up to class and work. It's debatable whether I actually did much of anything at either of those.
It's a good reminder - amazing doesn't happen overnight. Hell, that kind of amazing rarely happens period. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure I could expound on the virtues of me all day long, but I'm also pretty sure you all don't want to hear it.
So I do what I can and I start the wheel turning. I said to one of the gals on here that this whole process isn't about a quick weight-loss, but about finding a way to live healthier for the long-term - the long-term being the rest of our lives.
I got some rockin' advice. Here's another good piece of it. Maybe I should start listening to it.

So I've made it markedly clear I've gained back a few pounds. Still 20 pounds under, but gained some back.
Have I noted it in the actual measurements tracker?
Cause it's mortifying to put a bigger number.
It's time to hold myself accountable and realize that I can't just ignore the pounds. That nobody judges and everybody's supportive (well, that's the theory anyways!).
So off to the ticker I go - and be proud of what I have done, what I am doing, and what I will do. I've lost those few pounds before and I can do it again!
