Okay guys. Do you want the good news first, or the bad news first?
Bad news? Great. Let’s just rip this band-aid right off.
My eating has been out of control.I’m not just talking about a little unhealthy eating now and then. It’s been terrible binging every night for the past couple of months. I will eat an entire bag of chips, an entire tub of hummus, an entire bag of tortillas… I can’t feel full. I know that I’ve gained weight, I feel awful, and I don’t have energy to work out. I feel completely out of control. So, I’m going to fess up to everything here.
I am getting my life back in order. This afternoon I went to the grocery store and stocked up on healthy food. I ran three miles on the treadmill. I am working on cleaning my house, and I am prepping food for the next couple of days (who says you have to prep on Monday?). Here are my meals from today:
- Breakfast: Whole wheat bagel with a very light spread of cream cheese, applesauce, and a coffee
- Lunch: Tomato soup and applesauce
- Snack: Veggie chips, string cheese
- Dinner: Lean cuisine and pineapple
Not the greatest start to the day, the bagel was unplanned, but otherwise not terrible. And I’m trying to keep busy this evening so that I don’t eat anything else tonight. How do you guys do it? How did I used to do it? Why am I so freaking hungry all the time???
Are you ready for the good news? Because I want to stop talking about the bad stuff.
My boyfriend and I were talking a couple nights ago, and he busted out with, “I’ll make you a deal.” I was like, okay? A deal about what? He said that if I can wait until we’re moved and settled in our new house (which we’re still searching for, by the way), we can go ring shopping. Eeek!!!
This is the first real commitment he’s made to me about the future since we started dating three years ago. I am so excited.
Since I know absolutely nothing about what I would like in an engagement ring, I have been scouring websites for ideas. When I spoke with my boyfriend yesterday, his first question was, “Have you picked out a ring yet?” Aaaaah!!! Is this real life? I need help, any advice you guys have got about engagement rings. I am super indecisive, and I have terrible buyer’s remorse, so I am terrified about trying to pick a ring that we are going to spend thousands of dollars on. So far, all I have been able to do is send him pictures of giant rings as a joke since I really don’t know what I want. Here’s the one I sent to him yesterday:
