It's been so WARM here lately, not used to that in central NY! Even last summer we had like 5 days over the mid 80's. Well enough about the weather...
This weekend I went to NJ to see my my friend Beili with Matt, Andy and Stacie. I was a little moody and irritated that I got volunteered to drive when I hadn't had an oil change in 12000 miles and Andy had a good car. But when we got there we had a lot of fun. I made some watermelon margaritas from beilis mix (took a couple tries to get it right) and it was a fun time. We got up Saturday and Beili took us to his (dad's) fashion company because he wanted me and Stacie to sample some of the jeans/shorts they have there (his company designs for stores like rue 21). This might sound mean...but I felt good that they all fit me (the only size they had was 5/6), better that many of them were loose and one pair was too big...and I felt happy when Stacie tried on size 5 skinny jeans that she just couldn't really get over her knees and when I tried I could hoist them right up. We used to be the same size. I usually think I haven't really physically changed, until something like that.
Well anyways we went to a BBQ at his dad's enormous house that he throws every year for the company. Since many of the people there (inc beilis family) are all chinese, there were tons of goodies. I did purge once, but all in all it was a good time. I did however end up way too drunk, there was a thunderstorm and I was left alone with beilis friend chris who I guess is a bad influence on me and I ended up doing 10 shots of jose cuervo in rapid succession chased with beer and....soup. Yep...Steph went night night. Minus not being able to hold anything down for a couple hours sunday morning...I actually felt fine.
Sunday Beili took us to get Dim Sum...which is basically a restaurant where they wheel around carts of food and you can choose to have certain foods (1 serving each) on the table. We had pork rolls, shrimp dumpling, chive dumpling, sautéed bak choi, sweet tofu, bubble tea...and there were....beef tendons on the table...only Andy was brave enough to eat those with beili.
After that we packed up and headed to the marina and Beilis dad took us on his boat past the jersey shore and near manhattan. The guys fished and I had fun in the shade (and got a nice tan).
So last weekend was very fun. I was having a lot of issued with my weight because I have greatly decreased my purging...and I was ok with going from 138-140...but have had trouble since. And between alcohol and party food, I felt so bloated sunday night when we got back. Im sure stopping for sonic for dinner didn't help (we don't have sonic within 100miles of us..but we are always taunted by the commercials).
So yesterday I did what I think was the smart thing for this extra bloat weight. I had some coffee...a lots of water and had some high potassium foods like peach and avocado (potassium flushed sodium...and vice versa). I took a walk on lunch break with amanda and worked out for 30mins after dinner with matt. I tracked my calls and I consumed about 1860...which considering I worked out and I stand 50% of my workday...I'd say is pretty healthy.
I really am trying. I don't want to have an eating disorder my whole life. And I think I'm making some good progress, ironically since Paige has been on vacation and I haven't been able to see her.....supports my, I don't think Paige is greatly helping me theory.
I'm just going to keep trying. I had some homemade oatmeal around 8am...but it was only like 190cals...so I'm going to have a mini-meal in a minute I think....
How are you all doing?
