Happy Holidays!

I’m alive! Christmas was good. I spent the weekend at my sister’s and we baked a lot and did some shopping. I got a pineapple slicer for Christmas and that was the best present. I eat a lot of pineapple. I also got a purple sweater (in size 2x!!!!!!!!), an avocado slicer, a necklace, a cat paint by number, an Amazon gift card, earrings, and a DVD and books from my bestie.

I haven’t lost weight since the day before Thanksgiving, but I haven’t gained either. I finally managed to get rid of that weird weight gain I had as a result of taking my birth control weight and now I only weigh .2 pounds more than my lowest weight. That .2 pounds could very well be bloating from my period or the fact that I ate really late last night, so I’m not worried about it. Just glad the scale is finally going down. I’m surprised and happy that I didn’t gain anything, because I was very bad over Christmas. Between the baking and eating at my sister’s house, and the cakes and cookies we’ve had at home… yeah. Very happy there was no weight gain.

I have one New Year’s resolution:

Lose 75 pounds this year. Ambitious, but I’ve already lost 50 so I know I’m capable of it. That’s about 1.5 pounds a week. I definitely need to stop having so many cheat days (one cheat meal a week when I go to lunch with my bestie should be fine, right?) and I need to exercise more. Between the four exercise DVDs I have (Jillian Michaels Six Week 6 Pack almost killed me, btw) and the ones I just found on streaming thanks to my sister pointing it out, PLUS I got running shoes (even though I can barely run), I should definitely exercise at least 4 times a week. I did Biggest Loser Power Sculpt last night and my arms hurttttt. I did it for about 25 minutes, maybe closer to half an hour. I gave up halfway through the second level because I hadn’t really eaten all day and I was starting to feel sick. I’m dumb, I know. I really love the Biggest Loser DVDs, they are meant for fatties like me so they’re not as crazy as the regular ones (Six Week 6 Pack, I’m looking at you).

So my website host claims that a bunch of my files were corrupted with malware, which makes no sense because I’m the only one with access to anything and I barely touch anything, but whatevs. I ended up reinstalling WordPress and hopefully that is the last I hear from them about it. I completely screwed up my last WordPress theme, which makes me sad because I really liked it, but it was probably time for something new. I do want to make some tweaks to this one, but that’s how I broke the last one, so… guess it will stay this way for now. I also have no idea where the picture went from the last post, so you’ll just have to live without it. I did update pictures on my About Me page, so go check that out. I’m so cute and squishy.

I’ve been up for about four hours and haven’t even brushed my teeth or gotten out of my bathrobe, so I should probably take of that. Byeee!

FIFTY!!!11

FIFTY POUNDS! I survived BSF weekend (where I’m pretty sure I ate an entire bag of goldfish crackers all by myself) and managed to finally lose 50 pounds. I’m not really sure how but I have weighed 3 pounds heavier ever since Thursday (today being the exception, the scale only said I was 2 pounds heavier than my lowest weight). I haven’t had a cheat day since BSF weekend. Not even Thanksgiving! I think it was a mix of me eating really late on Thanksgiving (I scarfed down dinner at like midnight since I was at work all day) and Walgreens screwing up my birth control prescription (AGAIN) so I ended up taking it a few days late. Good thing I don’t take it for the actual intended purpose? I don’t know why I ever stopped taking the pill for the few years I went off it. I take it to skip periods but it makes my periods lighter, I have less cramps, my boobs don’t hurt, and my skin (on my back, gross, I know) clears up.

ANYWAY, BSF weekend was fun. Forever 21 had nothing good which was a disappointment but oh well. I did get a cute shirt for work at Nordstrom Rack. We baked sugar cookies and made a gingerbread village and decorated for Christmas. And we took pictures for Christmas. We send them to my aunt and grandma as Christmas presents. They are awesome. We are wearing matching cat sweaters in them! Here is one even though I cropped my sister out of it because I’m not sure how she feels about being on my blog (where she can be viewed by hundreds of Russians because they are the only ones who ever come here):

Yes, I’m wearing a cat sweater and also holding a cat. Whenever I see this picture I sing the song “The Coolest Girl” from A Very Potter Sequel in my head. If you haven’t seen it, the song is sung by Hermione, if that helps you understand at all. I’m hilarious. AND THE COOLEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. Plz someone give me money so I can have surgery on my double chin.

I am freezing cold. That is all.
