CAKE COMA, or FML Friday

All hell broke lose inside my mouth yesterday. I could not stop eating cake. Cream-cheese icing is my enemy. My pants today are tighter than ever and I hate myself a little.

HOWEVER, I still dragged my ass to the gym with Liz and did about an hour of strength work. Realistically, that was closer to 40 minutes with rest and whatnot, which is why I only counted that much on my tracker.

All the icing and cake are estimates because I really have no idea. My first piece was very small, but then I had gobs of things. I regret it. It was yummy but really not worth it considering my weigh-in tomorrow. I've been very good today though and managed not to snack last night probably because my body has enough sugar reserves in it for two full months, so those are wins I guess. Chugging water today, going to hit the gym for a C25K workout after work, and cross my fingers to at least maintain my weight in the morning.

Weekend challenges: Derby party (which I am doing the shopping/snack layout form so really there is no excuse) and lunch Saturday at Dixie Crossroads, where they have seafood and vegetables. So again: no excuse. INO!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! XOXO

Holy shit dude, you're my hero! Now I feel like such a fat ass, but in a good way. You and I were the same weight and at similar fitness levels at one point in time like WTFFFF! You are awesome. I'm motivated hearing this (especially the Jason part, which I knew was coming but still, omfg). Josh was 150ish at one point, which is good for his height since he's 5'11", but I think he's gained about 10 lbs. too. INTERVENTION TIME! To his credit though, he gets up every morning and runs a mile.

Anyway, damn girl I'm so proud of you. I know if you can do it, I can too, because we have run together and shared food tips, etc. My willpower is such a bitch, but I know I have control...IDK why I keep choosing not to wield it. I need to keep practicing what I would tell someone else in my position...like from the outside, I know I'd look at myself and be like, "Gurl, why do you need more icing? You know that shit is just butter and sugar and cream cheese, right? The scale will not forgive you." Something in my brain whispers, "Oh one more spoonful won't hurt." Bitch, please.

PUSH-UPS ARE HARD. Can I do sit-ups and lift weights? My abs hurt.

This reply was all over the place and I apologize.

P.S. My coworker just asked me if I wanted some M&Ms and I said NO, with confidence. But not bitchy. Maybe bitchy. I need to apologize.

P.P.S. You should get the MyVegas app for your phone if you don't have it yet. WIN REAL VEGAS REWARDS!

Thanks! =D

I have the MyVegas app and have been playing it like its my job. Ok, not really, but quite a bit.

See, if you think push-ups are hard, that's why you should choose those. Because either you get in some push ups or they'll help you realize that the treat is not worth that much suffering :) You can do girly push-ups if you want.

Welcome! ♥ LOL I've only had it a day and a half but I've been on it a lot too. I have almost 2,000 loyalty points, awww yeah. What are you at?

Sad reality: Even girly push-ups are rough for me right now. But you're right, that means I should do them more. I wish I could afford a personal trainer. I know I don't need it but it would help. Or you could just move back and stay from now until my wedding to motivate me/kick my ass. That's reasonable, right? :p

Girly push ups are no picnic for me either, but they get less rough the more you do them. But my idea is to put have to do something you don't want to do before you can eat the sweets so you think twice about eating it.

I will do girly push-ups next time I want sweets as long as I'm not at work. Lol. Thanks. :p


wedding: kiss close-up
Jen is losing it.
