A Good Night Sleep

Sometimes a good night of sleep is all it takes to feel better. I woke up feeling so much better yesterday morning. I think I was having one of those "Woe is Me" moment on Monday night.

I still am not going to the gym this week, but I did a good job of paying attention to the foods I ate and when I was actually hungry. It has been really cold here in Nashville this past week. I made my favorite comfort meal during cold weather. A grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. I changed it up a bit and added green salsa to the soup while it cooked and it was a yummy kick of flavor. No late night snacking either!

I also got my signature manicure and saw Milk. I highly suggest seeing it when it comes out. It is really hard to believe that so much discrimination and hate takes place in in the world.

So I am not even sure where to start with how the day has gone. It started off well. I made it to the gym and then it went downhill from there. The upper part of the gym (i.e. where the MAJORITY of the cardio machines are) is closed this entire week because of the remodel. I know I should be happy that we will eventually be getting more space, but it wasn't really what I needed this week. The downstairs was PACKED. I did my weights and left. I wasn't going to wait around for one of the few cardio machines. I did however have plenty of time to get ready for work.

I ate a huge burrito and chips for dinner. Oh and some red velvet truffles and english toffee to top it off.

I am not going to the gym in the morning. I just can't deal with the crowd. I need to keep telling myself it is only for this week.

I am just starting to feel really disgusted with myself. LIke I am not really sure what has happened over the past 3 months since I got back from Seattle. I don't know where my motivation went. I don't know where my self control went either.

Oh and I think I totally read too much into things regarding everything. Maybe this is a character flaw? Ugh.

I am excited about LA on Thursday, but scared about the food.

15 pounds can you just fall off please?

So not end this post on a downer here are some of my stats from the gym:

max squat: 200 lbs.
max dead lift: 230 lbs.
max leg press: 560 lbs.

Music Monday- Kings of Leon

I love this song. It's just so different from anything out there. I had a bunch of fun last Tuesday at work before I left for my drive home singing the lyrics and making up my own...I think my co-worker was ready to kill me though ;)

Enough is Enough

My pants don't fit right. I now have a muffin top. Barf.

So, I am going to do something about it starting tomorrow.

The gym and eating well are my plan of action. I have done it before and I can do it again.

Oh and water. Lots and lots of water.

I am back in Nashville and I have missed it so.

P.S. I have a slight crush on a boy who I have been e-mailing with since Tuesday. Too bad he doesn't live in TN, but it probably won't turn into anything more than friends or business... Oh and I didn't meet him on the internetz!
