B's Get Degrees...and Chocolate Gets You Back to Square One

Saturday, January 19, 2013

This semester so far: MUCH better. I have a crapload of work, but my schedule gives me enough time to get it all done. I'm also glad I took an easy 1-credit music class, because it's really enjoyable and an easy A too. ;)

I love all my teachers. So far my favorite class is Middle School Science Methods. In just the first class, I learned a TON.

I'm already used to all the walking, but this semester for the first time, I'm taking public transportation, and that forces me to do more walking to get to bus stops. When it gets a little warmer, my bike is ready, but for now, that's working out really great.

My food this week has been awesome. I'm frustrated with the number on the scale, but I'm trying to put it out of my mind and tell myself it just has to be a smaller number than last week. I was getting to the point where I was weighing in 3-4 times a day and getting myself all worked up...but today I'm just chillin.

Yesterday I ate too much for the first time since I was on vacation!!! I knew it was going to happen, too. I was on my way to have lunch with husband, because we usually meet up for lunch together when he gets paid. And while I was driving to his office, he texted me that he REALLY wanted to eat at Red Lobster. And I already had it in my head that we were going to McD's and I was gonna have a yogurt parfait and a side salad off the dollar menu, because even on payday, money is tight, plus it's easy to log stuff like that when I go out. So I got there and he showed me a coupon for 45-shrimp that he wanted...and I didn't have the heart to say no to him. Well...I did really great at Red Lobster. I got the shrimp tacos, which were AWESOME. But I didn't have any biscuits, no salad, and the rice they served with the tacos was too salty, so I wouldn't eat it. And, I only ate 2 of the tacos so he could try one, so I left there with 300 calories on my log for lunch. So as a result of being so good, I left that restaurant starving, and ran a few errands, and by the time I got home, I was so hungry, I would eat anything. And eat, I did. Ugh. Today I'm chugging the water to flush all the crap out of my system and hopefully still have a loss on Monday to record. Next time, I will put my foot down and have what I WANT for lunch! :/

Un-Sparked spouses, Part II:

Husband just got home from buying groceries. *sigh* I hate, hate, HATE when he buys groceries. I can't wait until school is over so I will have time to get groceries again! Pepsi...full-fat sour cream...ground pork...8 loaves of white bread...5 bags of potato chips...a bag of spinach that has been case-cut. Really? Oh, and Power Bars. He thinks because I'm "on a diet", that buying Power Bars automatically justifies everything else he puts in the cart. They are on clearance for 49 cents, so they are hard as a rock and loaded with fat/calories too, so I wouldn't eat them anyway. I guess I'll put them in his lunches. Whenever he comes home from buying food, I think to myself..."UGH...I'm so screwed!!!" :(

Sorry for the vent. It's time to get back to my math homework anyway!!!

    Those biscuits are so hard to say no to. I feel like I just sit there staring at them, thinking, NO YES NO YES NO JULIE NO!!! Last time i ate there I left starving too. It's like u can eat way too much or way too little with some of their meals. I think I got a chicken breast with broccoli and a salad. I hope you get time to grocery shop soon. Can you make him a list to follow?

    The hardest part of being married is communication with the spouse.
    The most important part of being married (arguably) is the communication with the spouse.
