I confess that I feel like royal crap this morning. Not just regular crap, royal crap - meaning king and queen of all crap. I hardly got any sleep last night. It's all because of my allergies. They've hit my chest - big time - and now I'm wheezing and feeling tightness in my chest. It sucks big elephant balls! I took an allergy pill last night shortly after dinner, and it knocked me out. As in, I couldn't keep my eyes open for anything. Of course, when I finally decided to go to bed - I kept being woken up by coughing. It's going to be a long day.
I confess that I didn't go to the gym last night. I got about a third of my way to work yesterday morning when I realized I'd forgotten my gym bag. I didn't stress about it too much, cause I figured I could just come home from work and go for a walk. Then, well, the first confession happened - and I didn't think it would a good idea to try and go walking outside while my allergies were so bad.
I confess that I'm not so proud of the fact that I ate a coconut cupcake for an afternoon snack yesterday.
I confess that I'm proud of the fact that I was able to eat that one cupcake and not more than that...and it didn't cause any urgent need for sugar. It kept me satisfied until dinner time. So, I must definitely be getting a little better with my binge eating control. A couple of weeks ago, a cupcake would have meant an out of control spiral eating anything in sight.
I confess that I've decided I want to stay away from the scale for much longer than a few weeks. In fact, I've decided to stay away from it for at least another month, if not more. Yesterday, I announced that I wanted to lose about 20lbs between now and summer break. But, the point for that 20lbs is because it would put be down to wearing a size 16 again...where I want to be (for now). So, instead of using the scale to dictate my progress - I'll be using my clothes. When my clothes start to become looser and baggier - I'll know that I'm making good progress.
I confess that I'm totally hooked on the new book series Fifty Shades of Grey. I read the first book in the trilogy in a matter of a couple of days, and now I'm on the second book. If you haven't heard about it - then you must Google it. Well, let me first warn you that it is an adult book - meaning for adults, and meaning there's a lot of.. urm..."adult" content. It doesn't fall in to my usual taste in books, but I just haven't been able to put it down. It's my first eRead book, too - I downloaded it on to my iPad.
That's about it for today. I really can't think of anything else I need to confess. I'm not touching last week - that would keep me here all day. Plus, I already confessed that I slacked off last week in other posts, so to just say it again would be redundant.
I'm still feeling a little out of whack with getting up at 4am and writing. My creative juices just haven't started boiling again. I'm hoping they will in the next few days....once the fog that is building up in my head starts to dissipate. I really hate allergies!
Till next time. ;)
