Purse Fever (Weigh-In)

You have no idea how badly I did not want to post a weigh-in today. I generally try to keep this blog fairly positive and use it a way to share my progress and even try to help motivate others, so when I have weeks that are as terrible as the last two have been for me, it's really hard to talk about them. This is by far the most weight I have gained in one time period in a while, and I really have no excuses.

Last weigh-in: 165.8
Today: 172.0
Change: +6.2 lbs
Total Loss: -109 lbs

If you haven't figured it out yet, I do not post everything that I eat. I usually post main meals and sometimes snacks, but I don't post all of the little things I eat here and there because I don't need to clog up all of your google readers with that stuff. My point is that I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking I always have perfect portions and great self-control, because I obviously I don't. I wrote in this post about getting back on track after finals, and while my work-outs have been great over the last week my eating has been crap.

Like I said, I try to keep my blog as positive as possible and don't want to get all pouty and negative Nancy on you, so I'm just going to finish up this weigh-in chat with this: Today is a new start. It's the beginning of the summer, so I can look at today's weigh-in as the first one of my summer weight loss. I'm not going to look at the next 6 lbs that I lose as losing weight that I've gained, but simply as losing weight. I know I can get it together; it just takes things like horrible weigh-ins to kick my butt into gear sometimes ;)

On a happier note

Moving onto something a little more upbeat, the rest of my day yesterday was great! As you know, I ran the my first 10K in the morning, and then I spent the rest of the day seeing a couple good friends and shopping. First I went to sushi with Jenny.

I ordered wonton soup and veggie spring rolls to start:

And then a California roll with cream cheese:

Afterwards we headed to the mall where a major purchase occured...

I've had major purse fever lately and have been looking for months for a nice purse, so when I stumbled into this beauty and instantly fell in love, I just decided to make the splurge :)

I haven't bought a nice purse in almost three years, so to say I'm excited would be an understatement :D

Oh, and you can bet I'll be calling up my boss to ask for some extra hours to pay for this baby ;)

To top off an already amazing day, I got a phone call from my friend Matt who I haven't seen in ages. He asked if I wanted to meet up for dinner and I quickly agreed!

We went to On the Border, where I ordered a delicious meal of fattening and cheesy chicken tacos (ahem, did I mention I've gained six pounds??)

Yeah, that was a huge pile of cheese. And it was sooo good.

I spent the rest of the night hanging out with Eric at the apartment. It was a lot of fun to just chillax at home and chat. He's mah buddy (in a non-romantic way, for the record) and I love that I can talk to him about anything :)

Well I'm late for a friend's bridal shower so I'm off! Hope you have a great Sunday :)
