Not a whole hell of a lot to report, but here goes nothing...

I get rooms comped at our local casino so my friend and I went up on Thursday and spent the night. We had a great time! I always feel better as a drive further away from home. I constantly toy with the idea of moving away, but I'm too much of a coward to actually do it.

I decided to take the 5th off from work, despite having no plans. I have several weeks of vacation built up and I continuously accrue it, so I thought I'd splurge and give myself a 4 day weekend :) I'm sure whatever I do will include drinking, so I'm glad that I've switched up my choice in cocktail. At home, I'm a dry red wine drinker. At the bar, I'm a beer drinker. I'm 29 and single, so obviously cocktails are a part of my social life. I realized that I needed to start drinking something a little better so I've been drinking top-shelf vodka and soda water. Actually, I'm having one right now :) Delicious and refreshing! I'm not a fan of sweet drinks, so it satisfies my taste.

I'm not sure if I had told you guys about yet another guy I've been talking to. I'm definitely over and closed my account. Anyway, I'd been talking to a guy who seems very sweet. He has been on vacation out of the country with his family for the past 10 days (he got back Friday.) I know I have no right to expect him to have gotten a hold of me already, but I did expect it. He also didn't say bye when he left. We had been texting back and forth the night before and I said something and he just never responded. I guess I was just hoping that he'd be as excited to meet me as I was to meet him. It's only Sunday. If I still haven't heard anything from him by Tuesday night, I'm going to write it off as another thumbs DOWN. Yes, we only started talking a few weeks ago, however, I know I deserve some effort. I'm a catch, dammit!

I've had several surprisingly civil conversations with my ex during the past week. He's requesting some information so he can get a mortgage even though he's still on mine. I'm working hard to get him what he needs because then he'll get off my case about doing the loan assumption paperwork. Either way, though, it's still stressful, ya know?

I'd kind of fallen off the wagon with my eating the last week or two. I wasn't eating anything horrible for me, but my portion control was crappy. My trainer has me on a cleansing to get me back into weight loss mode. Lots of fruits and veggies, some nuts, seeds, tofu and egg whites. I think it's exactly what I need to kick-start my metabolism again. I think my weight yesterday was 196, although some of that has to be water weight from the salty food at the casino.

I did 70 minutes on the elliptical this morning and it felt amazing! I'm going back to my 2x/day workouts tomorrow. I feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle anything!

    Vodka is pretty much the only way to go when I drink. Less carbs and calories than pretty much anything else plus it can go with pretty much whatever you want.

    Good for you for taking a 4 day weekend! If you got the time, you might as well use it and at least get some R & R! Maybe the guy will get back with you and you can meet but if not, it will be his loss that he missed a good catch! Guys are dumb...should I say that? Lol!

    Hopefully you are back on your eating program and can get things going in the right direction again!
