Retaining a ton of water, feeling insanely bloated with a round tummy, and somewhere around 140 this morning.

Barely-there cramps seemed like a valid reason to sleep through my planned 8-mile run this morning.  I'll go tonight at dusk, it's going to be 100 degrees today.

Coffee all day... maybe for the next week.

I just want to get all of this disgusting fat off of my body.  Enough is freaking enough.  I am more than capable of losing weight, so why do I bother to accept social invitations and buy groceries?

Luckily, all of my roommates are going away this weekend and my closest friend is going away for the whole summer... I am officially pledging not to eat out until September.  (Though my college roommate called me and is visiting on Tuesday, and we made dinner plans, but maybe I'll pick a cafe and stick to coffee then too).

I keep telling myself I'm not going to buy any more groceries until I've eaten everything in my kitchen...

...yeah, that never happens.

Just because you feel huge doesn't mean you are. It's all about your headspace. Please try to at least eat some fruits and veggies!
& I eat lots of chia seeds, they make a great vegan egg replacer and are full of goodness (and taste better than flax!). Thanks for sharing that recipe, it looks divine, I'm definitely trying it!.. now I just have to find the right occasion where I can only eat a tiny slice and give the rest away haha it looks so good it needs precautions xxx

Keep drinking plenty of water and the water retention will go away in a few days. It drives you nuts until it does, but IT WILL GO.

Thank you for your awesomeness about the slumlord. His mate had better get here to look at the roof soon! Miles tried to defend his lack of upkeep on the property by saying "broke is relative" (I pointed out he has 3 tenanted apartments in the one building AND works fulltime at the Milton Hilton and should be able to afford the minimal upkeep) and I had a little rage at him.

If I lived near you I would give you hugs and lend you my gigantic stuffed penguin for you to koala on to :)

Take care of yourself, ok? Love you so much <3

Oh not eating out until September?! Please share any advice if you find it actually working, this is one of my biggest downfalls. Also its making me poor. I wish you luck with everything and I'm sorry about the wedding drama, it seems ridiculous and childish. Take care lovely

I told my boyfriend we are not eating out anymore, I expect that to last about a week haha.
