late night Monday update.

March 31, 2014

Oh hey kids, don't mind me.  It's just 9:00 on a Monday and I'm just now posting a blog post.

This weekend was uneventful and wonderful.  Ben and I slept in, watched movies, watched an insane amount of New Girl (I will get to that in a second) and attempted to get our laundry situation under control.  As per the usual, we failed.  HOW is it possible that TWO people have so many clothes?!  Lord help us when we have kids.  If it isn't under control by then, well then I don't know what to tell you people.  #hotmess

So New Girl.  I watched hours upon hours of Season 2, which of course was amazing, because I thought that Hulu Plus had all of Season 3 available for me to watch.  Well they don't.  When they say you can watch any TV show you want, what they really mean is the last five episodes.  I was maaaaad, oooooh I was so mad.  But alas, it was not time wasted.  I heart Nick, Jess, Cece, & Schmidt all evenly and when Season 3 is available I will glue myself to the couch and watch it.  Like, all of it.

Today at work was pure insanity.  The doctors were back from Spring Break and every person in the metro Birmingham area came in to see one of them.  Can anyone go on SB without hurting themselves?  I mean, Lord.  It can be done people.  But I'm not complaining.  I actually love my job and my co-workers, and I like to be busy, so it was a good day.

I worked out tonight without Gene and without doing a class.  I felt like people were looking at me like "what in the hell is that girl doing over there..." but I just went with it.  I did some abs on the ab machine... then I did some circuit training, some squats, some stuff on the step board, and then I walked/ran.  I only burned about 350 calories, but I was sweating such an insane amount.  And it felt pretty awesome.  I actually felt confident that I could work out on my own and be successful.

It's kind of crazy... I've been trying to stay at 1,000 calories or less every day per my nutritionist.  Even burning just those 350 calories allowed me to eat more for dinner and have some greek yogurt afterwards, putting my total caloric intake for the day at 761.  And I'm perfectly satisfied and not starving to death.  #happydance

I hope you all had a great start to your week!

-97 lbs
[only 3 lbs away from -100!  omg!  the feeling is unreal]


  1. You go girlfriend! Only three pounds away, you are killing it! And I'm sorry, only 761 caloric intake? That's boss, lady!

  2. Seriously, you are an inspiration to me. I admire your journey and you have and are doing so freaking good!

    New Girl is one of my fav shows! I just finished watching season 2 myself and am so ready for Netflix to get season 3. It will be such a good reason to be lazy one weekend :)

  3. You're doing great! Cannot wait for you to do your 100 lost post!

    I just love New Girl! I've watched it since day 1 and am obsessed!

    I try to stay under 1000 too. Now that I'm more cautious about what I'm eating it's easier to make better choices...even though every now and then I still want all things chocolate!

  4. I knew you could work out by yourself!!! You go girl!!!

  5. So proud of you! I ALWAYS feel like people are looking at me when I'm at the gym and thinking "WTF is she doing over there" but you know, they're probably not. Once I realized that I wasn't worried about what anyone else in the gym was doing, I realized that they probably weren't even giving me a second thought! So you just hold your gorgeous head high and be proud of your hard work! Good job lovebug!
