There has been too much half and half in my daily diet.  It's so hard to cut it out.  I love it in my coffee (I have cut down on the amount of sugar I put in my coffee, but that just means I've been putting more half and half).  Also, I've had two drinks that include half and half in them....like a lot of it, at least 6 oz.  Anywho, other than that I've been doing alright.  I went out for dinner last night and only ate about half a portion of chicken tenders and fries.  They were really good, but I got full really quickly (I also probably had about 12 oz of sweet tea...oops.  At least It's better than coke right?).  I ate my leftovers for lunch today.  I still have 939 calories left for today after those leftovers and some coffee, and like two glasses of orange juice.  I am going to have spaghetti for dinner, but the trick will be to stop myself from snacking between now and then (then being probably about 6:30).  Only 3 and a half hours...I can do that right?

So anyway, I've been with my boyfriend since Wednesday and he's kind of a bad influence with eating.  He eats errthing.  Like a lot of food.  It's not always unhealthy but it kind of makes me want to eat more.  Although, I am pretty good about stopping myself when I'm not that hungry.  Like last night when I only had a few fried green beans, like 2 chicken tenders, sweet tea and some fries.  I definitely stopped myself when I got full.  I was also meeting some more of his friends, which always makes me eat less because I'm nervous.  Even though I wasn't too nervous last night luckily.  

My face has been doing something weird lately.  I don't know if it has to do with my diet or what, but it's been breaking out (for a while now) and it's been really dry and irritated.  I went to the dermatologist last week to get it looked at, but then I came and saw my boyfriend, so that's probably not helping my face.  He has a beard and obviously when we kiss it rubs up against my chin and cheeks.  But I don't think that's why it's freaking out because it's doing it even on my upper-cheeks and next to my eyes.  I have just been using water to wash it and putting some really light lotion on it because I really don't want to irritate it anymore than it already is.  The dermatologist did give me two prescriptions.  I could only get one of them (the one she told me to use in the morning) because the other one costed lik $200.  Ain't nobody got money for that.  So I used it for a day and the day after that is when my face started going crazy.  I also started using some lotion she gave me a sample of and I have a feeling that might be what it is.  Or it at least contributed to it because it started the day I used that.  I'll use the prescribed stuff again after I go back home.  Just no more of that new lotion.  I think another part of it might be an allergy or something because the last time my face did something like this it was because I was using sulfa to try and fix another problem I was having with a skin infection under my arm.  I am at my grandmothers house so it could be something I'm exposed to here.  I'll go back to a regular routine to try and calm it down by Thursday.

My boyfriend is doing his homework/watching golf, so that's why I'm going into excruciatingly boring detail about my face/diet.  Now I guess I'm gonna get back on Facebook or Tumblr.

That's all for now,

My stomach is getting that hungry feeling, but I still haven't heard it growl.  I've heard that's when you're really hungry, when you hear your stomach audibly growl.  I'll get there.  There's a guy upstairs talking to my mom and grandma about taxes or something, so I really don't want to awkwardly go into the kitchen to get some food.  Hopefully he'll not be here too long.  I'm at my grandma's house and my boyfriend has been coming over every day.  Hopefully he'll stay for the weekend with me.  He's just had class this week.  I have also been on my period which is really unfortunate timing, but oh well worse things have happened.  Also, breaking news: my stomach just made noise.  I'll go up when I'm done with this.  I'm also going out for pizza tonight (yay), so I want to save some of my hunger for that deliciousness.

I have been doing a lot better with eating less.  Yesterday I still had like 300 calories from my daily intake leftover, so I felt accomplished.  I haven't been working out for the past week or so, but when I go back home I definitely will start doing that again.  I am running a 5K in 3 weeks, so I really need to step it up.

Well, I guess that's all for now.

feel



I have been doing alright with my healthy eating.  I went to my sister's house last night and had super cheesy enchiladas for dinner (and then for breakfast this morning) so that probably wasn't the smartest option.  I am so broke right now though, so I don't have the money to go buy my own food.  My dad just gave me $20 for dinner, which was nice.  I have dinner plans at a place with all fried food and salads.  Hopefully I'll have the willpower to order a salad instead of some fries/onion rings.  I will be drinking water though, since it's free.  Try to space out spending this 20 as long as I can.  My best friend and her boyfriend are coming into town tonight, so I'm pretty excited and then my sister is having a small partyish type thing.  So it should be a pretty eventful night I guess.  I am feeling pretty tired right now and am not going out to dinner for another 2 hours, so I think I may take a little nap before I have to look "presentable."

I feel like I'm not making much progress with losing weight.  I've lost 2 oz in the last week...so that's not very much.  I did work out 3 times this week, so I felt really good about that.  I want to have a nicer (thinner) body by summer for sure.  So if I really work at it these next 2 months, hopefully it'll show.

That's all for today.

The new nutritional shakes I've been drinking for breakfast are yummy and I know they're better for me than what I might normally eat, but they don't tide me over for very long. Today I was hungry about 30 minutes after I finished it. Luckily, my dad brought me home some sushi, which was definitely healthier than whatever I was going to find/make here by myself. I also just worked out for 34 minutes on the wii :). I did the biggest loser wii program for core workout. I burned about 37 calories. So close to a calorie per minute, which isn't bad. I also drank a full 8 oz glass of water while working out, so that's another plus. I'm not feeling hungry now, just like I need to shower. Hopefully I can keep up the working out. I want to try for twice a week (realistically once a week at least). I'm feeling pretty good and about to go take a nice shower.
