It’s been a while since I wrote a “mish-mosh” post, and since I have lots of little things to share with you (none of which would require an entire blog post), I figured this would be fun.
“The Crush.” I’m not even sure this is update-worthy. Let me begin by saying I think I have lost any “Game” I once had. I am so out of practice with flirting/reading signs from the opposite sex, that it is a bit pathetic. (Especially considering my age!). Still, I know some of you are interested.
Taking the advice of Scale Warfare and others, I decided to text Crush the other day. Our conversation was short, but in it I asked him if he had voted yet (it was Election Day), and he said he had “been to (sic) busy.” Ok, so first, I hate the misspelling of the homonym and secondly, I really hate it when people don’t appreciate that voting isn’t just a right, but a duty. I thought that he got a bit turned off by me saying that he needed to vote, and that turned me off. As I wrote to SW, if he isn’t someone who likes an intelligent girl, then he’s not the guy for me. I was about to write him off altogether, and then he texted me last night: (“Crush” is in grey, I’m in green) (Also, forgive my terrible photoshop skills)
As you guys can see, the whole text conversation was fairly ridiculous, right? It’s also pretty clear (and I knew this) that Crush uses a lot more slang than I do. Which isn’t a bad thing, necessarily, but I am looking for someone who can hold his own with me, intellectually. Crush might be able to, but I’m not sure.
So, we’ll see if it moves beyond awkward texting to him asking me to coffee or drinks or something. While I have no expectations at all, I think it might be fun to see him and hang out a bit. (I flirt much better in person than via text, at least I used to).
My new scale is awesome! I love how I can just step right on it and don’t need to tap first with my toe. Plus, I can get on it 4 or 5 times, and it gives the same weight readout each time, as it should. My old scale was past its prime and lacked accuracy toward the end there.
I was happy to see that I lost 0.2 pounds from yesterday. Now, I’m not one of those people who is weighs herself everyday. In fact, I try to stay off the scale as much as possible. But I think I may try daily weigh-ins this week, just to see if it helps keep me on track more than once-a-week-weighing does. Just sort of experimenting.
I’m looking forward to another personal training session with Robbie today. I haven’t seen him since last Friday, and I need an intense workout. I was supposed to do 3 sessions this week, but Tuesday I ate some room temperature Greek yogurt (never do that!) and felt pretty nauseous all day, so I had to cancel our session. So I’m meeting with him today and tomorrow, just to get our two sessions in this week. I haven’t done back-to-back sessions before, so we’ll see how it goes. He had mentioned that he wanted to do some circuit/cardio work with me one of the days (when we were planning to meet 3 times), but I’m hoping now that it’s down to two sessions that he’ll just do arms/chest one day and legs the other, along with core and leave the cardio to me on my own. In fact, I’m going to do more than hope, I’m going to tell him that’s what I want to do. After all, I’m paying for the sessions.
My new meal plan is going really well. I’ve been able to stay within my calories really easily and there are two side bonuses:
- I’m going to save money! I only spent $60 for all my food this week, which translates to $240 for the month, which is so much less than I was spending ($400).
- I’m saving so much time! I sort of new this would happen, but it’s not just saving me in the nightly cooking, it’s also so much easier to pack up my breakfasts/lunches – just grab and go. No prep at all. It’s sort of nice.
I haven’t figured out what I’m going to cook this weekend yet. Whatever it is, it’s going to be something for one, because I don’t want too many leftovers that I have to deal with. Although if I do make some sort of stew or baked pasta dish, I could theoretically portion it carefully and have it for lunch and dinner a couple times next week. We’ll see.
If you have any one-person meal ideas that actually involve some cooking, I’d love to hear them.
I LOVE November because there are so many holidays (no work days). Which shouldn’t give you the impression that I don’t love my job, because I do, but I’ve learned over the last couple of years especially that BALANCE is important and that I enjoy my life more than I enjoy my job. Next week I get Thursday and Friday off for Veteran’s Day – hello 4-day weekend! Then 2 weeks later I get Wednesday, Thursday, Friday off for Thanksgiving (5-day weekend!!). Plus, once the weather turns cold and daylight savings time hits, everything just feels a bit more cozy.
That’s it for me today. I hope you are having a great Thursday.
