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,
