Family? Good or bad....

Saturday, July 31st 2010

I have no family to speak of. If I were to die tomorrow (not to be morbid about this), Larry wouldn't have anyone to call. I'm sure there are some cousins or what not out there, but I'm quite certain none of them gives a rat's a$$ whether I'm breathing or not. Larry's family: well, MIL and SS2 are even one step further down the road since they obviously dislike me; SS1 and DIL like me OK, but they don't care one way or the other. On the other hand, Heather has too much family--it's worse tha...

The last Friday in July

Friday, July 30th 2010

Today was pretty good--did a 2-fer: jogged in the morning, lifted and climbed the stepmill in the evening.

I was super hungry when I got home so I ate a lot, but most of it was stir-fry vegies (mushrooms, bean sprouts, onions, green bean) but I still feel guilty--why I don't know. Total calories was about 1600, but I know I burned enough to make up for the extra. Gotta work on this guilt thing: I KNOW I can't work out hard and not eat. But knowing and feeling are two entirely different...

Hungry--sort of

Wednesday, July 28th 2010

I can't say I'm really hungry, or at least not starving. I just don't have a lot to do and I'm used to eating when I'm bored. Of course, now that I turned my reading light off, I'm so sleepy I just about can't stand it--I guess the only thing to do is take a short nap.

It's wrong: I started my diet at 1200 calories on Sunday and so far I've only lost 1.25 pounds. You'd think I'd have lost at least 40 lbs.

Ok, enough sniveling. I WILL NOT look like this when I go to med school: I'm ...

I feel fat today

Tuesday, July 27th 2010

I've been pretty good on my calories the past few days, though Sunday might have been a bit over. I'm set right at 1200 +/- 50, so that part is good. However, I just plain feel fat. Fluffy. Chubby. Large. Bulgey.

I don't feel particularly hungry, but I have the urge to eat--mostly because I'm bored or something. I will get over it--I will exercise--I will eat on schedule. And schedule is about 15 minutes.

Money Frustrations

Thursday, July 1st 2010

Well, yesterday I sorted out the checkbook and it is not pretty. Quite frankly we are in tilt mode and I am going to have to do something about that. Yesterday I coped by eating 1/2 gallon of ice cream, but that wasn't particularly productive. What amazes me is he KNEW I was having issues, but he responded by the particularly annoying quirk of eyebrow-raising, and then when I went to bed insisted on waking me up every hour or two.

This so pisses me off because, if everything runs true ...
