An Anniversary

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  The 5th of May means more to me than just margaritas, it means another year has gone by since I graduated from the best place on earth.

 Instead of posting the same pics I did last year, feel free to go back and read that post.  Oh how I miss that place, roommates when can we plan a trip back?  Anyway, yesterday I was in a super negative mood and didn’t want to bring the rest of the world down, so I decided not to post.  I’m still feeling kind of bad today, but a rocking spin class last night helped my mood.  Either that or the vodka and soda I sipped while laying in bed.

Since I’m still feeling funky, I thought I’d share with you some of the pics Dar sent me yesterday from his job site.  He and his crew just started their huge summer job, which means 12 hour days and 5 minute sleepy phone calls for me at night.

Guess who gets to climb up that 40 foot ladder and paint the chimney, yeah, that’d be the boss who unfortunately is Darren.  I simply said “please don’t die”.  Boyfriend already has a steel plate and screws in his hip, we don’t need any more artificial parts or broken bones.  By the way, the scar from that surgery is NASTY, ask Amy, she’s seen it.  So yeah, the have a whole neighborhood of those condos to paint this summer, sounds fun right?  I’m thinking once summer temps set in, it will be significantly less fun.

So, I’m once again calorie counting, to try to figure out where I’m getting excess calories that are making my pants so tight.  I downloaded the Daily Burn ap for my iPhone which is giving me a calorie allotment of 1551-1801 a day.  It also suggests workouts to do to help you reach your goal, which for me is to drop about 10 lbs.  I think my  main problem is I’m overestimating how much I’m burning, and underestimating how much I’m taking in.  Hopefully if I can get a handle on the numbers I’ll  have some success in the weight loss department.

Anyone have plans for Cinco de Mayo?  Do you all still miss college as much as I do?

What a Day

It seems I am not alone with my struggles with jeans.  Apparently runners are not the fit models designers use, go figure.  Anyway, thanks for the nice comments.  I’m well aware that I’m not fat, it’s just frustrating to put on jeans that are way too tight, when a year ago you couldn’t wear them because they were too big.  I’m going to start really tracking calories for the next few weeks and see if that makes a difference.  Also, last night was night one of the vodka diet.  One drink, instead of 3 large glasses of wine.  Plus a turkey sub from Subway.

Yesterday was a bad day, I won’t go in to all the details, I’ll just show you this.

Needless to say, by the time I finally got home last night I was cranky, moody, and in desperate need of a drink.  I actually did force myself to work out though, and managed to do 3 miles in about 28 minutes before I died of boredom.  Did I mention I left my iPod in my car and was running sans music?  Yup, realized that just as I walked into the locker room to change, debated just going home, running back out to my car in the rain, or just sucking it up.  I sucked it up, sort of.  It still sucked.

When I finally got home I saw a large box from Victoria’s Secret sitting in my living room, and immediately tore it open.  Everything fits, luckily, and I don’t need to do any returns.  I bought a pair of nude Colin Stuart Pumps, two dresses, a pair of brown tights, and some basic things that I needed.  I can’t wait until summer to break out the new sun dresses.  I’ll show you pics at some point.  My night ended with a Skype date with Dar and TV in bed.  Ehh, I’m still pretty cranky today, and actually threw a pair of jeans across the room this morning.  It’s also rainy and gloomy which isn’t helping, maybe I need more coffee.  At least it’s Friday though, I guess.  Ugh, wow I’m not even that excited that it’s the weekend.
