Today I had a great meal with some great friends. I had a banana split, a chai amaretto and split a martini with my girl. But I tried to ration my calories so that I ate less than 1500 for today! There’s only 10 or so days to the wedding, and Lord knows what havoc that will wreak on my diet so I must be unindulgent until that time! In terms of workout, I really do like Ripped better than Shred, it seems to move faster.
Daily Inspiration: My best friend today (lozenge-of-love.tumblr.com) told me some key things, and I will paraphrase.
1- I need to stop pining (as I do, its a terrible habit) over people that don’t like me back
2- I need to love myself more, and stop looking for self-validation through guys and other avenues. Invest the time in myself, and I’ll be happier and then those things I so lust after will come. Happiness instills confidence and confidence is sexy
3- I should stop trying to be someone I’m not for other people. Stop trying to impress people, stop being on my guard, and just be my weird, loud, goofy self. Just be myself. Usually I hate the “just be yourself” card but this time it did hit home, and I really liked hearing it. Probably cause its true, and I was hearing it from someone I love and who loves me.
My inspiration today came from letting someone who cares for you, someone you trust, tell you how they see that you can make some positive changes for yourself. I respect her deeply, and I’m going to listen to her. I hope every one has this kind of friend.
