ndubbs87's Journal, 13 April 2012

I forgot to take my measurements today :( I knew I had way too much time this morning!

I felt really fat and sad at my gym class yesterday. I don't know if it was the mirror I chose or the angle I was looking, but my stomach looked HUGE! And it really feels huge too.

I've decided that I'm going to give myself a reward every time I do the diet correctly for 2 weeks, including not drinking. At first I thought I would reward myself every week, but then I thought I would be spending too much money and I can't imagine shopping for myself every week...I usually go 3 times/year.

We had a celebration yesterday where I refused champagne and things were going well...But then I went to a play and one of the program directors was talking to me and offered me a drink and I said no thanks, then he came by later and said, I have an extra glass of wine that is going to get thrown away, do you want it...and so I said yes. Because I didn't want to be rude. I felt like he really wanted me to have a drink so I did... So I'm not happy about that. Especially because I just got a Kohls 30% discount card for April 18-25 and if I hadn't had the glass of wine I could buy myself something on sale on the 23, 24, or 25th. Now I will likely have to buy a full priced item. And also, it has been my plan for months to go shopping next time I got a 30% off card, but now I feel like I can't because of the constraint I put on myself. Maybe I'll just go shopping anyway...and maybe I will reward myself every week instead of after 2 weeks.

I'm going to try to plan all my meals this weekend so I can make sure I will be good all week. I am really in the mood for some cucumber sandwiches, but my cucumbers usually go bad sooo quickly! Maybe I'll go to the farmer's market because apparently the veggies last for weeks since they're so fresh.

I also really need to start going to the gym 5 days/week again :( I don't want to go wedding dress shopping until I have lost some weight but I'm feeling a little hopeless right now.
