Exciting news, readers!! The numbers on the scale are ticking down! Yes, that's right, I weighed myself post-cardio today and I'm at my lowest weight in...in...well, in a few years, anyway! How exciting! If I keep going like this, I'll need to get my bridesmaid dress (for my brother's wedding) taken in. I'll have to buy new pants. EEEE! I could wear a bathing suit and not hate it!! Oh, the possibilities are endless! Now that my muscle is sufficiently built, I'm hoping the cardio will begin to melt the pounds off. Mind you, I suck at dieting, because I freaking HATE it. It makes me grouchy and binge on the good stuff, SO I don't do it. Instead, I try to be mindful of what I'm ingesting and keep away from the IPAs as much as possible. The last time I quit drinking to help lose weight, I lost about 13 lbs...and it was miserable. I like drinking and love drinking hearty beers, so I'm trying to compromise. Last night when I went out, I had a Jameson on the rocks. It was a big Jameson, but it kept me from downing black and tans, so it worked!
I've been thinking about my non-existent love life a lot today. I've noticed that there are a couple of things that I keep over-looking in potential companions: I need a guy who a) likes kids and b) wants kids. If those two elements are not there, there is a good chance we aren't truly compatible. I mean, even if I do hit it off with someone and things work out and develop into a relationship, if he doesn't think he'll eventually want children, we're going to have serious issues down the road. Unfortunately, OkCupid doesn't really have a good filter for that, (free site, go figure) so I went ahead and put it right there on my profile. I don't remember when I started to feel so serious about actually finding someone, but I guess creeping up on 30 can do that to a girl. True, I won't be 30 for 18 months, but I have a feeling that 18 months is going to fly by. Maybe when I'm still single at 30 (yes, "when," not "if"), I'll start paying for a site again. Ew. I don't want to do/be any of the things mentioned in the previous sentence.
The "little goals" idea from yesterday...yeeeeaaah, apparently watching The Big Bang Theory is more important, because I haven't done any laundry and I think the apartment is actually messier than it was before. Huh...good thing I'm the only one who sees it.
Here's something exciting, my boss came in to my office today and asked that we make tomorrow, instead of Friday, my last day. I was caught a bit off guard, but just said, "Okay." I hope her reason for asking me that wasn't personal. On the other hand, I'm really lousy at this job and I'm sure they are going to be glad to be rid of me. It's nice that they let me stay almost my whole two weeks and it'll be nice to have a day off before starting the new job. Maybe I'll catch up on my "little goals." (HA!)
