Losing Weight; Finding Men

Weekend Update

Well, I hadn't heard from James (for those who can't keep track, I don't blame you, I can barely keep track myself. The last I mentioned him was here - I should really make a spreadsheet eh?) because he'd been away for two weeks visiting his daughters in NC. He contacted me during my Friday night date (I swear, do they have 6th sense and just know the most inappropriate moment?), and when I TM'd back that I was on a date, he responded with "Ditch the date and come hang out with me at the club." Ummmm tempting, but no. So today, when he sent me an email telling me he was now searching for his soul mate, I burst out laughing. This is the guy who told me upon first conversation that he didn't want to have anything serious with a woman ever again (appropriately scarred from ex-wife cheating on him). About one month later, a complete turnaround? Is that something a little unstable or am I being too harsh? Remember he's on anti-deps. So I called him out on it, and he said he's made some decisions to "stop drinking, start exercising, getting back to caring again," so I'm curious, merely curious. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt if his message to me on Friday hadn't been "meet me at the club." Instead, I've just offered him my referral to my gym.

I'm somewhat troubled by the feeling of still being obsessed with food...not so much in eating it as in tracking it, preparing it, thinking about it. I simply became overwhelmed and couldn't track my weekend and now here it is soon to be Monday. Blaaaaaaaargh!

I did workout on Saturday. I also didn't eat well this weekend. Date night was a burger and a hot chocolate. I didn't eat nearly enough on Saturday at all, and then today was yet another burger, with fries. Hmmm. Alrighty then. Is there a burger and fries diet? YES, it is called FAT GIRL. But my meals for the week are all planned and cooked, and my schedule for working out should be Mon/Wed/Fri for sure. Goal of the week is to eat at least 1000 cals a day. Sounds crazy right? I can't believe I'm saying that but it is true. Food logging has really opened my eyes.

No awards tonight won for Benjamin Button, but so good to see some good films (The Wrestler, Happy Go Lucky, Slumdog Millionaire) and TV (Mad Men, True Blood) getting recognized. And oh my, Colin Farrell looks fantastic when he's not on the sauce. Very very stoked to see Bruce win for his touching song that he simply gave to the film without a penny. That man writes music for the sheer joy of it.

And...I have to say I am a Jack Bauer fan. Early reaction? I'm not impressed. In fact, I wonder if 24 will ever surprise me again. I LOVED the first few seasons, but now I have accurately guessed the next scene or plotline or connection so often that it hardly holds my attention. Do love Keifer. Will give it a chance.

Lost is starting soon. Big Love is starting soon. And I don't need more than that. I'm supposed to be writing my novel! Right, right, right after I read the five books staring at me on the table...

Good luck to you with your Mondays!

Glad to see your enjoying Twilight. And glad to see your at least attempting to monitor what your eating. I fell off the wagon hard and bumped my head several times on the way down.
I didn't watch the awards last night. I think I prefer to read more than movies now.
Let us know if you have another date with James. I highly doubt there will be another with Vinnie B. He didn't sound at all promising.

Ugh, I started my own blog so I could leave comments for other bloggers, specifically yours. I am ADDICTED to carbs and as I was searching Miracle Noodles online, I came across your post and was feeling inclined to leave you a messgage. You round up with your own words and experience how I feel about food and carbs EXACTLY. I am trapped in carb limbo, where I can avoid them, lose weight but at the same think think, think no...OBCESS about them all friggin day long. I mean it this time, actually mean it...SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE. I am making legitimate efforts to fix all my crazy food issues, because they are keeping me hostage. I will never be happy, in control as long as I am this obsessive food fixation. Uggggh, oh great blog btw!

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
