So after a restful week with family in NY, I am back to the daily grind for a few days before I go see my immediate family in California for 10 days. I am feeling a little frustrated....I feel like I'm not losing weight fast enough. I feel like no one around me is noticing besides me....I am a super-impatient person in the first place, so I especially suck at biding my time with something as emotional as weight loss.
That being said, I do feel like I am having a much easier time getting through my workouts, and I was extremely careful about my diet the whole time I was on vacation. I didn't log in as often as I should have, and I drank some beers, but in general I made time for exercise as frequently as possible, sometimes walking/jogging twice a day.
The guy that I was supposed to go on a date with tomorrow pulled a disappearing act and suddenly went from talking to me all the time and seeming really interested in me to not talking to me at all. I think a few months ago this would have really upset me and layed me low, but these days I just feel sorry for someone like that. To be 27 years old and not able to tell a girl you don't want to talk anymore....sad stuff. I hope he treats future love interests better, and that he ultimately finds happiness....but I will be too busy having an awesome, loving relationship to notice!!! :)
On the subject of boys, I have religiously avoided the male roomate I was/am/could be crazy about. I haven't seen him in almost seven days now. As soon as I got home from vacation, I started making sure to be fast asleep when he got home from work. I think if I just keep avoiding him and focus on work/family, I will forget about him eventually. I miss talking to him, but I need to do what's best for my emotional health right now....and he's not a part of that!
Speaking of focusing on work...have sucked at that lately. I just haven't felt motivated to deal with it and have found myself surfing mindlessly through funny cat pictures on the internet for hours at a time....my boss is such a sweet and lenient lady that I think that I accidentally take advantage of the independent-style working methods here sometimes. I guess that means I should stop typing this blog and start dealing with the huge load of paperwork and billing that needs to be done before I leave for vacation on Friday morning. Not to mention that final English paper that's due....which I haven't even read the text for....whoops! hahaha
All I can do is avoid the scale until I am feeling less impatient, stick with my workouts and my tracking, and look forward to some fun in the sun for my Las Vegas/California birthday adventure. Thank you all SO MUCH for the warm support that I know will get me through this ancy faze until the number drops again!
