when the ship goes down

134 lbs. I thought I would at least be down to 133.2…sigh. Okay I hoped for 132. I haven’t changed my eating habits enough. The main thing I did was eliminate bread from my diet. The other thing I’m going to do now is stop eating protein bars!!! NO MORE. I thought they were okay because they were only 290 calories. But it probably kept my weight steady. I don’t count calories so I wouldn’t know.

Well I’m mainly exercising to get my metabolism straight. That is my goal. I don’t know if that means I should do less weight lifting and more cardio or what. I’ll figure it out. I went to the gym at work on Sunday (empty!). Instead of getting on the treadmill, I used one of their jump ropes for cardio. I hadn’t jump roped in forever. I have to buy one for myself. I’m looking at this one: King Athletic Jump Rope for Cardio Fitness Training Expensive ($14) I know but it might be worth it.

Update: I just ordered the jump rope!


I still haven’t heard back from the leasing company regarding my apartment. I was so excited when she called to tell me someone can take over my rent but I haven’t heard back. Sigh. I have to pay the rent for August today. I hope this my last time paying. Please???

Work is stressing me out. Nothing new about that. I can’t even begin to blog about it until I write it out in my paper journal. stress fest.

I’m very excited about a new volunteer opportunity! 🙂 I will blog about it once it is finalized. I’m trying to work out my schedule. Is 3-4 hours a week good enough? etc. etc. If I hadn’t joined the gym, I would have much more time to volunteer. But I feel like I have to go to the gym since I’m paying for it.

This weekend I’m going to a bead show. I’m not planning on buying much of anything since I’m not currently making jewelry but they sent me a free ticket so I think I’ll go. I hope I have enough willpower to not buy anything because I was a very bad girl today.

I went to a thrift shop. :/ I brought 14 tops (sweaters, blouses, t-shirts), 1 skirt, 1 pair of shorts, and 7 books for $33. It was stupid. I need to save money. No more clothes for me for a year.

I dunno. I’m feeling depressed so I’ll end this.
