So this has not been a good week for me. I started this week super excited because I had actually lost a couple pounds. Not a lot but some. Determined to start some new workout challenges and start doing some spinning working on my career and what not so I was very hopeful, I guess is a good word; excited about the changes that I would soon be making in my life. I even had a nummy healthy lunch; and the girl in the break room was like “That is the most organized bag lunch I have ever seen!
And then it all went down hill from there. I gave up a day off to help a “friend” who needed a day off and it bit me in the ass. I got in trouble at work and some feelings were hurt, mine included. It really just drove the nail home that I am down here all by myself. I have one cousin down here but he is on the other side of town and is busy trying to live his own life. The boyfriend is working on a cruise liner so I only get to talk to him once a week when he is at port and I never see him. I’m not really sure if I miss HIM or if I just miss A him. Which is also kind of tearing at me. I don’t really get along with the people at work because they are younger than me and I am at a different place in my life. I’ve done my partying 20s and I’m now into my planning 20s. Im just really noticing that I am really lonely. I don’t have any Floridian friends. The ones that I had have all moved away to do bigger and better things and I am still at the starting line trying to make sure my shoes are tied.
So my emotions are flying high this week which has led to some stress eating and heavy dosages of tequila. LOL I may not have been eating healthy the last couple of days but I was eating good. Last night for dinner I had a hometown throwback. Something I like to call Chicago Nachos.
It may not be healthy but pair it with a Margarita (or some 15 calorie lemonade and some tequila) and it will make you feel better for a little while.
Then this morning I finally had what I gave up when I went to help the “friend” out. BANANA FOSTER PANCAKES! I can’t say that they made the shitty week worth it but they did make me forget for a little while. And I got to talk to my boyfriend while eating them!
