NYE Anxiety

The boyfriend&I were invited to a neighbor's
New Years Eve party
-
A couple who generally makes me feel uncomfortable.

Tall-Dark-Handsome guy
Stick-Skinny-Fashionista girl

both of whom shamelessly look both of us up&down
and tonight will be no exception.
I'm sure their friends are very similar to them...
all the ones I've met so far have seemed to be.

.short dresses & high heels.
.long&beautiful hair with long&thin legs.

I'm not looking forward to being around that all night.


Someday
I hope to be the tiny&gorgeous girl at the party...

Drinking Meals

So much drinking lately.
(meals out with girlfriends - holiday parties - etc)
I'm ready for the holidays to be over
so I can eat&drink like a normal person again.
My brother came to town
so we went out
(like usual)
and drank the majority of our calories.
By 8pm, I'd only BarHopped&DrankBeer.
I have no desire to drink again
till, like, St. Patty's Day.
Not only is it so awful for me
but it also makes me not want to work out at all.
I guess it's good that I barely ate today, though.
I drank my calories instead of eating.
But I'd rather not do that anymore.

Weight Wishes

Ever since I can remember wishing on anything
Fallen Eyelashes - 11:11 - Birthday Candles
I've wished for weight loss
which is incredibly silly
because it's all about my control&effort
not the wishes I make
that cause my to shape up & drop pounds.
When it comes to wishing, though
that seems to be all I can think of.

Secret Obsession

Over the holidays I got together with some girlfriends.
One of them has lost a significant amount of weight
since college.
We had dinner at a Italian restaurant
and
all she talked about was wanting to order something delicious
but that she couldn't allow herself to get FAT again.
After she'd downed a couple dirty martinis
she munched off everyone's plates
sloppily shoveling carbs
between her pink, smudged lips.

I saddened me.

I created this blog so I could keep my obsession to myself.
I've been up&down
...
and people have noticed.
I've lost&gained
...
and people point it out.
(one of my girlfriends actually mentioned that:
I'm looking thinner at our Italian dinner.)
But whether I'm chubbyORtiny
...
I keep my thoughts to myself
and
never spew my weight-loss desires
or
weight-gain fears under wraps.

Naughty 105-106

Bagels w/ Full Fat Cream Cheese
Pizza w/ Ranch
Crackers w/ Cheese
Burritos w/ Queso

Truffles

I had two days
of naughty-naughty dairy-filled binge-eating.

After behaving so well over the holiday
and weighing in at 127lbs on Christmas Eve
I fucked up and ate around 5000calories
in two short days!

What the fuck is wrong with me!?
I laid in bed with my boyfriend
and slammed anything&everything that sounded good.
I guess knowing I plan to give up dairy
made me desperate to eat all I could before January.

I still can't believe what I did.
But I must accept it and move on.
Nowhere to go, but up from here.

Aerobics&Soup

For about two weeks now
the boyfriend&I have been pulling two-a-days.
6am & 7pm workouts
My morning workouts are basically light aerobics
and the evening is hardcore
as I am to make sure I work off any/all calories I ate
throughout the day.
Unfortunately
I’m not always so good at actually holding up my end of the plans.
Damnit.
I guess, though, I’ve been eating pretty well
(minus candy – here&there)
because I’ve been making gigantic batches of spicy chicken soup
every Sunday afternoon
and dividing it into lunch portions for my entire week
which really helps me control my intake.
 
Now, though, is the Holiday Weekend...
let's see how this goes.

Old Pants

So, a couple weekends ago I discovered
a box in the back of my closet
filled with clothes.
When we moved,
I packed a box of clothes with holes&rips
that I hoped to fix someday
then obviously forgot about.
I was excited when I found it,
cause I’d just been thinking
that I needed some new jeans and
instead of buying any –
I simply fixed some old ones that fit perfectly well.
Well, maybe not so perfectly
since I put on some weight
since I bought most of those jeans
...
hence why I've been able to live without them.
Today, I’m wearing one of the pairs I patched up
– a pair of purple skinnies I bought in college.
I distinctly remember wearing them to the bar 2 summers ago
and they were so tight I couldn’t button them
I left it undone
and
put a belt on to cover the opening.
When I put them on this morning,
they were loose around the waist
a full hand can fit
between the front button and my belly.
I feel incredibly satisfied by this.
And I hope soon:
they'll be TOO BIG.


Too bad there are so many holiday treats around
causing me to stumble lately.
Who has chocolate for breakfast!?
A fat girl who definitely won't have loose pants
come January!
C'mon... gotta get it together right now.

Tanspiration

I started tanning again.
I know, it seems strange to go to a tanner when you live in a year-round warm-weather climate, but I simply don’t have time to go outside and tan enough. Instead, I started going at the gym, which isn’t the most convenient cause I don’t want to be all tanning-lotioned-up before my work out or shower then get in the tanner after a hard workout. So I’ve been doing light cardio and a tan in the mornings before work, then my intense cardio at night. It’s a lot of driving, but it’s worth it to look the way I want to look. And, since I don’t want to tan at my hardcore evening gym time, it forces me to get up in the morning.
Unfortunately, the first time I decided to go, the only bed open was a stand-up and I burned the shit outa my armpits. After soothing myself with aloe for a weekend, I’m sticking with relaxing laydown beds and thoroughly enjoying the results.
I also had to go on and get some new lotions. A facial one to help my zitty-nastiness and a great bronzer to help speed up the process.
I always feel skinnier when I’m tan.
And my facial complexion gets better
which is great.
Before I know it, I’ll be a tiny&tan beauty again.
Can’t wait.

My Scale

My mother who’s been feeding into my weight obsession since I can remember – sent me her old scale in the mail and I finally received it over the weekend. She claims it’s entirely accurate – having weighed in at home then heading directly to the doctor’s office to find the same weight – so I’m excited to actually use this scale. It’s so inconvenient to use the gym scale. In one of my three gym location options, the scale is in the office, so I have to ask to use it. No thanks. And in the other two, it’s right in the middle of the weight-lifting machines. It’ll be nice to have a good scale to keep track of myself on. I put it right next to my desk (where I sit down to type all these posts) so it’s a nice, little motivator&reminder.
And, even after my awful weekend, I weighed in on Monday morning and I’d lost .5lbs. woohoo. I guess one blown weekend didn’t completely kill me.
Now I just have to convince myself to only do Monday weigh-ins instead of hopping on and checking a million times a day.

Holed-Up Weekend

The boyfriend&I basically ate the same meals two days in a row this weekend. The same naughty meals. Since we were basically out of groceries and decided to hole up inside doing Christmas decorating&wrapping instead of leaving the apartment, we had to make do with what we had in our fridge&cabinets. I’d bought some corned beef hash & fat free cheese slices, so omelets were a must. And the bag of potatoes under our sink turned into a couple different side dishes. And Jack’s pizza – my absolute favorite kind of frozen pizza – go us through the one lunch we decided to break&eat. The worst thing I indulged in was an entire brick of cream cheese with pretzel chips. If I’d have avoided those, I probably would have been a lot better off. I had a couple purges throughout the weekend and walked up&down my apartment stairs, so I probably netted less than 4,000 for the weekend, but that’s still pretty terrible. I guess as long as I’m well-behaved the entire week, I’ll survive one naughty naughty weekend.

Flirtatious Motivation

We went out for drinks with the boyfriend’s flirtatious-friend tonight. For the first time, I didn’t worry about what I was going to wear in front of him… though I enjoy the attention from an attractive man, I’m very much over his attention. Ironically enough, he seemed even more interested in my loose-fitting black jeans&hoodie than normal. But, I still wasn’t fooled by his attention. He flirted with the girl who checked out I.D.’s then took forever to order his drink because he insisted on asking our waitress a million questions (though he always gets the same drink). No matter who he’s flirting with, though, attention is nice. It’s great to be looked at – really looked at … even semi-judged … with a detailed investigation of my body. It kept my from eating anything more than half the boyfriend’s order of french fries and one Long Island Iced Tea. And the thought of young, men looking at me in a bar made munching on anything once I got home seem like a disgusting idea. I guess, whether it’s a flirtatious-man-whore or my-own-boyfriend, attention is a great motivator.

Boyfriend Disposal

The boyfriend has been trying to hardcore diet
which means he plans to have protein shakes
for breakfast&lunch
then soup&salad for dinner
with morning workouts 3x a week
and nightly weight training.
The thing about him, though, is that:
he talks a big talk
but since we've been together
he's never followed through.
So when he complains about
how starving he is mid-day
I can give him most of my meal
and he quickly takes it without realizing
that if he's eating it... I'm not.
Works for me.
Lots of workout time
and someone to eat my food before I can.
Now if only he'd go to the gym with the good tanner
I'd be in heaven!

Today, of course, we both did a little munching.
Damnit.
A vendor brought in pizza
and I successfully avoided it
but he brought home twizzlers&milkduds
a coworker had handed out.
And I ate too many calories worth of both.

Bilson Thinspo

Ever since my high school days of watching The O.C.
I’ve thought Rachel Bilson was adorable.
She’s so petite&sassy
and
I always love the rolls she plays in.
Obviously, I’m a big fan of Hart of Dixie on the CW
mostly so I can see the cute outfits
she puts on her tiny frame.
She’s incredibly sexy
even though she tends to play
simple
not-obviously-sexy characters

My One Year Anniversary came&went

I had a goal to lose by that date
(November 7th)

I say the same shit over&over.

I've had a sudden burst of motivation.
I'm flying into Chicago
for a Girls' Reunion
over New Years
and I want to be the
skinniest girl in the group again.
I used to be the one
who everyone would tell to
"eat a hamburger"

I used to be the one
to lay over everyone
in the backseat of the DD's car.
I was the tiny one.

VS Frame

is always a great source of thinsporation
and this year was no exception
though I thought the musical performances
(including the amazing&sexy Rihanna)
were more heavily showcased than
the thin, scantily-clad runway models.
I love how lean&muscular the girls are
instead of being complete beanpoles
Mostly because I think my body is more likely
to look like that than boney.
I was texting my best friend during the show
and
she pointed out that I always have muscle definition
even when I’m barely working out
so I should “aim for a VS body.”
Haha – good dream.

Party Cheats

Tonight was my office Holiday Party
at a fancy Italian restaurant.
I probably would have done better
if there hadn't been an open bar.
I simply can't resist wine.
Food wise...I think I did pretty well.
Salad&Salmon
Once I'd downed 3 glasses of wine
though
I couldn't resist dessert.
And tirimisu is one of my favorites.
Since it was about an hour from home
I was able to hit the gym after the drive,
so I worked the elliptical during Nashville.
(and burned some cals during post-dinner sex)
Have to start doing better.

Bad Horoscope

This was my horoscope today...
 
You may have been a bit obsessed with self-discipline lately. That may be because you overindulged in some way awhile ago and it came back to haunt you. Maybe you went on an ice cream binge and gained several pounds you can't seem to lose. Maybe you splurged a bit too often while shopping and now you're still paying the piper. Whatever it was, though, it's time to give yourself a break. You learned your lesson. Indulgence is good for the soul now and then, as long as you can keep moderation in mind.

AntiMunchDrunk

Just after I bitched
about booze making me a munchie-monster
I spent today's late afternoon&evening at the bar
with some coworkers watching college bowl games.
The last thing I did was munch.
Got an order of french fries and ate about three.
Though I probably should have munched on more them
because the alcohol definitely got to my brain&body
faster than I'd expected
and
I found myself falling out of the bar
and
ripping my favorite pair of black jeans
...
the ones that make legs look teeny-tiny
even though they aren't.
Oh well.
At least I only drank my calories
instead of both drinking&eating them.
