What would you do?

So last night my friend and I met up with a friend of her for drinks and trivia. He brought two of his friends. We had a good time we all ended up going to another bar together. My favorite bar by the way! However a the second bar, her friend started to make fun of overweight people by saying he could never marry a girl with a shelf butt, or his worst nightmare would be to marry a girl and then for her to get the butt. He also said he can't handle arm fat.

I sat there quietly stunned not really sure what to say. I mean *I* have arm fat. I had a long sleeve shirt on so you couldn't see it. The waving arm fat he was making jokes about, *I* have.

So have any of you been in a similar situation? Have you said anything to them?

What would you do if you were in this situation.

I do know this, next time I am not just going to sit their quietly.

This is not a Joke

I repeat. This is not an April Fool's Day Joke. I got my butt out of bed this morning and ran sprints!!! Not gonna lie, when I went to bed it was raining and I know I was secretly praying that it would be raining in the morning, thus giving me an excuse not to get out of bed. Well the alarm went off an it wasn't raining. I hit the snooze once and than got out of bed.

I did sprints for over 25 minutes!!! I had no clue how long I had been doing them. I had to go back and look at my play list to determine how long I had been doing them. Than I walked for another 15 minutes.

I realized that I went to two shows last week that I didn't talk about. Stars and Weakerthans. Both Canadian bands. I am not crazy about either really and went because friends wanted me to go. If I had to pick, I liked the Weakerthans the best.

Last night I went to a writer's night. It was ok. Two of the guys performing were way too cocky for my liking and slightly meatheadish. After the round we went and got dinner. I ate half of my BBQ quesadilla and have lunch for today!

Weekly Weigh

I know you all are waiting for the results and the scale was up. Up to 195 this morning. I realistically know it is from the crap that I have put into my body over the past few days and most likely will come off very quickly. Just another reminder that I need to focus. Oh and my pants were slightly snug this morning as well, not cool.

So this morning was slightly stressful at work. Instead of caving and eating crap for lunch I took a nice little extended lunch and worked out at the gym. I ate my planned lunch.

Not sure what the plans are for dinner and my good friend is in town from LA. If I do go out hopefully I will be able to choose something that is enjoyable/desirable/healthy. I think it can be done.

To weigh or not to weigh???

I don't really want to weigh in tomorrow, because I know it will show a gain. I didn't weigh in last week because it was right after the holiday. For the most part, I have made some unhealthy choices this weekend (Ummm, can you say chocolate for breakfast, pizza, ice cream cake????) and I haven't made it to the gym as much as I would have liked to. BUT, I did exercise 5 out of 7 days. How awesome is that? 5 years ago I would have exercised 0 out of 7 days AND eaten poorly. It's all about focusing on the good things!

Most likely I will weigh myself though. I am going to try to get away from using the term "weigh in." For me I feel there are some negative emotions tied to the phrase "weigh in".

I had a great weekend and I will post more of an update tomorrow :)
