Drunken Quesadilla

So, I slacked. 3 days in and I took one off. In my defense, I have had a cold, but still, that does not excuse what happened at Happy Hour.

I have religiously been using my Loseit app. Logging every calorie that passes my lips. I have been really good about this, but anyone who has ever tried to eat healthy can tell you the first week is TORTURE!

Last night a group of us went to Happy Hour. A few old coworkers showed up, and I was starving when we arrived. Besides being obsessive about my Loseit app, I am also cheap, so I ordered some weird fried item that claimed to be chicken. And then I had a soft pretzel. And then I had a quesadilla. With guacamole and sour cream.

I left the bar uncomfortable and drunk, not from the 2, extremely weak vodka sodas, but from the massive amount of food I ate in a very short period of time. I swear I even woke up hung over.

Today is a new day, and despite my gluttony, I am down 2 lbs. Time to get back on the wagon.

I’m not fat I’m big boned

Let me start this off by saying that I do not think overweight people are destined to spend their lives alone. If you are comfortable in your own skin, no matter what size you are, you will be happy and confident and happy and confident people are attractive and attractive people who are happy and confident are usually in relationships.

Right now, at my current size, I am not comfortable. Since I am not comfortable I am not happy and confident, blah blah blah, this is one of the reasons I’m single.

So now the question is what am I going to do about it? Well, I have a gym membership, but I have not been going regularly. I have downloaded all of the food apps, but I don’t use them.  I am not an idiot so I understand I need to burn more calories than I eat of I want to lose weight. My challenge is motivation.

So here we are back to my life and deadlines and accountability. I dint want to say I’m going to lose 10lbs by Tuesday, but I need a plan and the one I chose was based on a twitter project my favorite Gossip Girl Kristen Bell did a few months ago

I am committing to a min 30 min of activity for the next 30 days.  I watch at least that much TV most nights.  I will also become friends with my LoseIt app again.

This journal/blog/experiment may get a bit Bridgette Jones-ie on us here but I will try to keep it interesting.

Why am I Single?

Any warm blooded, non-coupled American female of a certain age (like over 13) has asked herself this question.

Too Tan?Am I too fat? Is my hair too blonde? Am I too beautiful? Are my boobs too big? You get the picture. Her great girlfriends will always answer the way they are taught as children, “No! Of course not!”

Reality is, they are lying and you, Miss WhyAmISingle, are correct.


Please don’t click on Facebook just yet. Let me explain. You are correct in the assumption you are single because you need to come to terms with your insecurities. There are things about yourself that you need to change before you are ready to be in a relationship and yes, your hair might be too blonde.

Getting back to the real purpose we are here, me, let’s discuss why I am single. To keep things simple I have narrowed it down to three main reasons I am perpetually single:

1. I have gained some weight, okay, a good amount of weight, over the past ten years and I just can’t get comfortable. Can I still shop at normal stores and participate in physical activity? Yes, but for me and my comfort level, I’m too big.

2. I am scared of being hurt/ needing someone. Twice I have made epic life decisions based on relationships I was in and twice I was left alone and devastated.

3. I am afraid of happy ever after. I am afraid I’m going to meet Prince Charming, get married, have four kids and never climb Mt Kilimanjaro.

So in the next 107 days, I plan on addressing these issues head on, but first I’m going to have some cheese. But after that, I’m on this. I will be sharing my experiences and in theory, my self-discovery/improvement plan will net someone who wants to buy me a Christmas Present.
