Um, holy crap? I've been off work for the last week and a bit, and I haven't had time to read entries so today i've been going through them and just now I read through yours. You haven't had the best time lately, have you? I was sorry to read about it, but then there was that great entry from Friday and you seem to be doing so much better now. Holy doodles. I hope things stop spinning around in your life and you're able to take some of that time off that you talked about needing. We all need a little time off once in awhile.

Have a good one today!

binged all weekend.

for two weeks, i've been binging.

feeling like i just want a vacation but that i can't take it.

i was a lazy bum today...procrastinating on an assignment for work, starting at 7:45pm and ending at 1am...there's the possibility that i didn't start my week off right...

Update 1:

i've quit my Sunday music lessons job. it was TOO MUCH. as you can see from my entries, i was completely overwhelmed and not in a good way. when i had my first weekend with lessons off, and i still couldn't accomplish everything, i was practically depressed and binged for 3-4 days.  i was besides myself and i can't even believe how much trouble i was having in getting out of that "depressed" feeling. it was horrible, and it's over now. it's saturday, weekend, and i can sleep past 5:30am. i feel so much better today.

On a different note, I have HOMEWORK for my new job. I do get paid, which is more than i could ask for - quitting lessons but not missing out on MONEY! amazing. i did kinda need a totally free weekend, and this work is gonna take hours, but i'm happy overall. not gonna turn down work. at least i can do it at home or whereever i want...library if i choose would be a good place too, there are private rooms i can use which would be kinda cool if i get distracted at home. i can listen to music or watch tv while doing it, unlike at work. nice! i must concentrate, so maybe not TV. since i need my eyes to do the assignment! haha. it's very detailed, visually.

so i quit music, but it seems that i may not be totally at a loss for money. we'll see if every weekend gives me a shot at earning money. i would like that.

if not, that's ok too. hopefully this assignment won't take more than FOUR hours, it potentially can...haha.

ladies, i'm feeling good. thank god.



exercise: hour of cardio at the gym.

breakfast: 300. yummy. oatmeal, greek yogurt. love this breakfast. satisfying and warming.

snacks: coffee, granola bars 300

big, big lunch: 1,000 mostly 600 calories worth of the chocolate covered edamame. all good, man.






happy Friday girls ! Ladies, yeah, happy friday!  I made it!  yes!

i haven't thought about exactly how this weekend will proceed. i know my grandma's gonna be at our house for dinner either saturday or sunday....exact plans are not decided and that's alright for now...

breakfast: 320.

enjoyed extra dark chocolate covered edamame during the night when i woke up with a small appetite.

calories for friday at the high point are approximately 2350.

i'm beginning to feel MUCH better.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 04/22/2011:
Yes, you made it. Good - have a good weekend. I'll check back in this weekend!

Umpqua on 04/22/2011:
Yay for Friday! Have a good one :)

loveray on 04/23/2011:

my part time job wants me to come for a 9PM meeting tonight. they called yesterday to "remind me." talk about exhaustion...i've been exhausted. I don't wanna go....it's too late for a meeting....and a half hour away!  I guess i'll be going to bed late again tonight.

eating: it's been hell since Saturday.  Last night I ate reasonably at dinner at least, not too much of anything.

today: survive. basically, i've just been trying to survive each day and nothing more. I don't feel good thinking this way at all. I"m sorry to complain but i'm going through some tough things mentally right now. I'm still besides myself. I'm screaming on the inside. My skin is just horrible, it proves how i feel on the inside, overwhelmed.

Rescue Me.

hollybelle on 04/20/2011:
HOP, I am so sorry you are struggling with things right now. I find that when I feel like that it's often because I want control outside of what I should expect to have control over. When you can, get by yourself, take a deep breath and "have a meeting" with yourself. Tell yourelf what is bothering you and then give yourself advice like you would give a friend and then take your own good advice. Sounds kind of crazy, but it may help. It's important to take yourself out of the cycle and become objective to the things that are "eating" you. This too shall pass, dear one. God bless you today.

h82bfat on 04/20/2011:
HOP - I don't know what your breakout is all about, but DON'T LET IT DEFINE YOU! I have a skin condition on my face. I can keep it under control most of the time, but some times - look out (it can get so bad my lips even swell up). I've found that the more I stress about it (or anything for that matter), the worse it gets. Stress can "show itself" in SOOOO many ways - it's amazing!! Find something that you know will calm you, that you enjoy, that makes you feel peacefull - for me it's walking or reading - & give yourself an hour each day to do it. You are worth some ME time, so give it to yourself. You may be surprised just much of a difference it can make. Hang in there, it too shall pass....

~Moody~ on 04/20/2011:
I'm sorry that you're so overwhelmed right now~You sound beyond stressed..I hope that you find some peace very soon~

And I think having a meeting at 9:00pm is crazy~Ugh..

Hang in there~as hard as it is sometimes...just hang in there

i'm sorry to complain. i'm upset, frustrated, and completely besides myself. not doing well.

....just trying to get through this week. It's Tuesday. We have company tonight. My chin is totally broken out. I feel so disgusting in general.

I have currently lost control of everything in my life.

loveray on 04/19/2011:
what's going on HOP? frustrated regarding weight loss stuff or life-stuff? i have been breaking out as well lately - i think its PMS:) but also stress and not eating as many fresh foods as i can. i hope you feel better today and enjoy your company tonight which i assume is for Passover:) xo

V on 04/19/2011:
I am sorry that you are not having a good day :( I hope that you can get a firm grip on whatever is troubling you :)

getmebackto150 on 04/19/2011:
so sorry to hear you are not feeling in control... I am thinking of you and I totally know how frustrating that out of control feeling can be!
