Bea: You got it—the PA is Pennsylvania. It’s where I’m from and where I’ll be going back to next month. Good luck with the job!!

KawaiiCandie: I taught for a year in a more rural part of the country and for the past 6 months I’ve been working in Bangkok as a program coordinator for a binational educational foundation. I looove the work, and know that my life is going to be less fun and exciting when I’m home, but it’s time. You must really love Japan—5 years is amazing! Sorry about your awful today. I hope the next one was better!

Lisa: Congrats on winning the bet! That’s so sweet you’re spending it on your son’s bday party! Good luck in Atlanta!

penmage: OMG, your friend’s kitchen sounds hilarious! Not going to lie, I have pretty much nothing in my kitchen either since it’s cheaper and SO GOOD to eat at the markets here. Also, good luck with your jean situation—I LOLed at the thought of squished ovaries. Gurl, I get it.

Isn’t it funny how some months feel so empty, long, and boring and then the next you don’t have a free moment? Welcome to my January/February. I’m definitely happier and prefer the busy as it strangely keeps me more accountable and on track. I blame it on my natural instinct to want to hibernate, watch tv forever, and become a couch potato. Not so good for my healthy lifestyle! Haha!

My eating’s been pretty solid, but my exercising has been seriously lacking. I walk a lot since I’m living in the city, which is helping, but I’ve been trying to get back into running again. I really need to step it up because next month, March 8th, actually, my work is hosting a Thai “cultural night” which means we’re having a big fancy dinner (in a palace!) and I get to wear a traditional Thai dress! I’m borrowing it from one of my co-workers (naturally a smaller boned Thai woman). It fits, but let me tell you, I CANNOT gain a pound or it won’t. it’s definitely motivation to work out more, especially to tone up, so I can spend the night feeling comfortable and pretty.

Oh. My. Jeebus...6th graders. Today sucked monkey balls. Not only did TOM show up with a vengeance, but I had 6th graders and my worst class (usually at the end of the day) was switched to first period. I would have actually been looking forward to that if not for the fact that I showed up for class and the homeroom teacher yelled at me because his class ALWAYS has English 5th period (he's had the schedule saying otherwise for 2 months now, mind you) then out of spite spent the first 6 minutes of class yelling at a little boy who'd written ばか (idiot) on the board between classes. Should the kid be writing that? No...but he's 11. Give him a break. The whole class doesn't have to suffer over that. He also took it upon himself to physically drag yet another child out of the classroom in the middle of class, thus ensuring that any amount of attention I'd managed to glean from the class was yet again ruined. The other 2 classes of 6th graders went slightly better, but they're spending way too much time picking characters (then naturally they feel the need to doodle them on their sheets) when they're supposed to be writing stories. I had a few superstar groups that got down to business and banged out two classes worth of work in one period (one even wrote everything using Roman characters instead of Japanese to express the sounds of English...they aren't supposed to learn writing in elementary school), but the rest gave me enough of a hard time that I didn't even get a chance to properly congratulate them. There's going to be stickers everywhere next class...

...anyway, I'm also apparently developing some type of chest cold, so I'm cuddled in my fleecy blankets wishing for death at the moment. Hopefully the leftover medicine from my sinus infection clears out some of the mucus so that I can function for the 1st graders in the morning >.< Just have to survive one more day until I have a 3-day weekend...

Kawaii: Congrats on the drop! We got snow here yesterday, but it was warm enough that it turned into rain and was mostly gone by the time I was leaving school. Totally not worth the 4 obnoxious emails and the intrusive phone call during my morning preparations that I tripped out of the shower trying to answer from my company. Such @ssholes...

Namaste: GOGOGO! Almost there. You're doing awesome

lisa: I wish that I had your motivation...I also wish that I had a gym available that didn't involve massive windburn...Good luck on your business trip.

bea: Huh...didn't notice that it was censored, but that was b@st@rdized... Congrats on the ticker change and good luck with the job and gallbladder.

kaelah: Ah...the thought of real pizza makes me weak in the knees...Japanese people like taking the idea of different food then trying to copy it, which generally doesn't end well. Pizza is one of those things...first off, Japanese dairy products leave something to be desired, but more than that, they tend to forget the tomato sauce and instead pour half a bottle of mayonnaise over the top of the pizza. Ugh. And they put corn on it a disproportionate amount of the time. I'll definitely be indulging in some real pizza when I'm back in the States...I'll be on a plane in 56 days...so happy.

Hello Ladies! Wow! All of your lives seem so interesting!! I'm leading a relatively boring life in Colorado Springs, CO. But I suppose I will take boring- it allows me to focus on my task at hand- getting healthy before 2014 and baby making.

I too have a nasty head cold. I'm missing the gym and far from productive at work. -_-

Hotaruchan- mayo pizza sounds foul.

gracie- Thai cultural night sounds amazing!! Will you be able to sit in the dress? LOL. Sounds tight.

Kawaii- Are you in a long distance relationship?

Oh goodness, I am starting to be a scale junkie. Gotta stop looking at it on a daily basis! It's like an itch. I just have to check!!

My goal is to only look at it once a week. >.<

Bea:

We were supposed to walk down the belmont piers and get dinner. But I heard it might rain on Friday, so may have to just meet up for dinner...i'm excited! Trying to figure out what to wear.

Congrats on the interview, I hope you get it!

kaelah:

You go girl! You have some willpower I also had pizza yesterday, and it came out to about 400 calories (not too shabby).

Softspeaker:
Hi back!


graciegoose :

That sounds like so much FUN! Bring me with you

Hotaruchan:

I'm sorry you had a bad day sounds like that homeroom teacher is on a power trip and probably shouldn't be teaching anymore if he takes it out on everyone

mayo on pizza!? that does not sound appetizing. When I visited Mexico, they used to put gobs of ketchup and hot sauce. definitely not as bad as mayo, but still

Hey guys,

Sad day here in my household. We had to put our almost 17-year-old cat to sleep today. He had huge stomach tumors and was very uncomfortable. I have been in kind of a crappy mood all day because of it. I decided to have a decent-sized meal in his honor (because as you can imagine with tumors in his stomach it was very hard for him to eat). And likewise, I will have a huge workout in his honor too. Sounds like an odd combination, but hey, we all deal with grief in different ways, I suppose. He was a good ol' kitty and I will miss him.

In less depressing news, found out that I am no longer plus-sized (at least according to the oversized spandex-y jeans that seem to be trendy nowadays) and I fit into a size 16 skinny jean with tons of room to spare in the waist. I would have gotten them had they not been $70 for one pair. Oh well, next time I will have enough money and will have gone down a size.

My mom also got me some Betsey Johnson earrings and a matching necklace for Valentine's Day, plus a pair of ballet flats and some fingerless gloves so I can type my notes without my hands freezing off. (I live in a basement apartment and it is freezing down there all the time.) I am very excited and have been wearing all the accessories whenever I can.

-----
Bea- Good luck on the interview and on getting your gallbladder out. It's a lot less invasive these days as they only do a few small incisions as opposed to a large one. My mom had her gallbladder out and was fine in a week or two.

Soft- I know what you mean, I'm constantly trying to weigh myself and am forever hassled since my mom's scale is old and is calibrated horribly. I usually end up going to the gym and just accepting the weight it gives me.

Hotaru- Mayo pizza??? Ewwers. That sounds just as bad as getting a burger and fries in Germany where they seem to think that mayo is tasty on both the burger and fries. I have had some amazing pizza in Italy, though. Sorry to hear you're having a time of it, the homeroom teacher sounds a little mental, to say the least.

Kawaii- Sorry to hear your day didn't go well. I understand where you're coming from. I hope things get better for you soon. But on the upside, way to go with the sweater looking better. I love brightly colored sweaters myself, and hope to get me a bright coral one next season or a mint green.

Kaelah- Way to go you!

gracie: that sounds exciting! and the party sounds like huge fun... be sure to show us a pic of you in that dress!! yeah, i love japan and would stay here forever if i could... i really must get cranking on studying japanese if i wanna do that though... lol.

hotaru: oh dear... well, at least it's over!! why is it that they always give us the worst class at the end of the day, too? at least you could get it over with early this time around... i am also in the grips of TOM and he's messing with my head... lol. hang in there!

lunarsongbird: no i'm not in a long distance relationship... well, except for the fact that bf lives at the total edge of tokyo and it's a 45min train ride to here... haha. but i see him about once a week, which is pretty "normal" for j-couples, apparently. he's pretty busy all the time, so meh. i'm just really anal about him mailing me, and he's pretty stupid about it cuz he doesn't get the point. men.

softspeaker: i've been weighing in every day too, haha. i know i probably shouldn't but i've been seeing tiny losses every day this week so i can't help it! haha. it's not so bad as long as you don't let it affect your mood too much.

kisskiss: they put mayo on everything here! so weird! usually mayon and corn together... lol. it IS possible to get real pizza here, but it's quite rare, and usually pretty expensive...

namaste: sorry about your kitty but yay for new smaller pants! yeah, i love color too! and omg... pastel coral and mint green are my faaaaavorite colors for this spring! they're really trending over here i've got a few already, eheh. i really want this pair of super chunky high heels that i saw in mint green... could never walk in them, mind you but i WANT them!!! lol.

hey guys! woke up with a headache this morning... thank you TOM!! though it seems to be better now. I don't have work today so it's gonna be a chill day. gonna be day 2 of doing Body Revolution, and if i'm not too lazy i'll try to pop into the gym as well. i might go out for drinks with friends tonight, though it's not sure cuz i'm pretty broke. haha. oh yeah, and my scale keeps going down!! tiny little increments everyday, but still!! 169.5 this morning!! *happy dance*

happy friday everyone!

This week has been nothing short of insane at work and I am beyond tired by the time I get home and get to spend a little time with my husband before he goes to work. I am so glad the weekend is almost here since we are both off on weekends and get to spend that time together. I am going to start waking up earlier in the morning to exercise before work so no matter how crazy my day gets, I was able to take care of myself regardless.

What are everyone's plans for the weekend?

Yeah, mayonnaise pizza. I was teaching 2nd graders food today and explained to them that that's not considered okay in America and their little eyes all bugged out of their heads :P They tend to put mayonnaise on tons of stuff here. I couldn't stand it in America, and I certainly don't want it ruining my takoyaki here. I asked one of my principals about it once and he claims it's because after WWII there wasn't a lot of food, but mayonnaise was cheap and had a lot of calories, so people would put it on food to supplement calories. I asked why they still do it when everyone and their mother seems to weigh about 40 kg full grown and yet they still all want to lose weight and he laughed and told me in English that he likes mayonnaise.

About to go battle the wind to get to the train station...some of my friends convinced me that clubbing in Tokyo was a good idea even though the trip is an @ss-pain and a half for me and I hate dancing. Still not sure how they managed it...I had to walk my bike home from school because I was sitting on it and pedaling, but not moving at all. Look Ma, I made a stationary bike!

Gracie: That's awesome! I've been to PA a couple times... Once to this musical festival somewhere past Amish Country lol. It was awful. lol That sounds like a really fun party!

Soft Speaker: I love being a scale junkie. As long as you don't let it make you crazy. But the number helps me stay on track.

KissKiss: That sounds like a lot of fun!!

Namaste: I am sorry for the loss of your cat. : / I am not too worried about the surgery. More that I won't be able to workout as hard as usual for a few weeks. Thanks though. I am just really tired of the pain it's been causing!

Kawaii: I am glad I am not the only one addicted to clothes. I love to go shopping but I will only buy it if it is in goal size and it is less $10. lol. Or if I know it can easily be taken in when I hit goal size. Or if it's just really really cute. I have surprisingly been really good about not buying too much the last few months. Then again, I buy a lot online and then return it, just to see if I like it lol... wow. I have a problem : )

Pink Hurricane: Good luck on your morning workouts!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope everyone is doing well!!

I will be doing a bit of running around if my boyfriend will ever wake up. lol. I should probably go without him. It will take him forever to actually wake up, take a shower, get ready and drive the 20 mins to my place. He takes forever!! After that, I get to write a couple papers, do a geology assignment and quiz and a com theory quiz. So much fun! But tomorrow we are going to see Warm Bodies for his bday so that should be fun! lol

namaste984 : So sorry to hear about your cat


Pink Hurricane : I've had the opposite. My week at work has been very chill. But still, TGIF! I have my date tonight. So nervous!! what are your plans for this weekend?

Hotaruchan:

how was the club? I'm not much of a club person, but clubbing in a different country does sound exciting. hope you had fun <<hah there was not dancing emoticon so I just put this one up

________
I'm so happy that it's Friday. First, I weighed in at 189! I love when I cross into a new middle number on the scale. also, I have my date tonight. I'm pretty excited but nervous too. happy friday everyone!

bea: you sound like you have a very productive day today! How long do you run for? I ran a few days a week for most of last summer, but I never really got into it. I know some people who love it, and they become 'free' but Nope I've never had that reaction lol

pinkhurricane: have a good weekend! good luck with the waking up early part... i've never been able to do that...

hotaruchan: wow, that is the first time i've heard the reason behind all the mayonnaise!!!! eye-opening! lol. oh and, you came to tokyo and did not tell me!!!! which club did you go to?

bea: oh, i KNOW i have a problem!! haha... i try not to buy goal-size clothes though, because i've done that before, and obviously never got there, so it ended up being just wasted money, but then again, i've bought clothes (or more likely shoes...) that fit and that i just almost never wear. lol. i have seriously too many clothes. and the sad part is, i got rid of about half my wardrobe last year when i moved... i have about 50 pairs of shoes.... lol! good luck with your run!!

kisskiss: congrats about switching decades! tell us about your date!


Hiya guys! today is saturday, i'm getting ready to do the cardio workout from Body Revolution so i hope it's not discusting (i hate cardio) since the other two first workouts have been pretty easy. today is my cheat day and i'm meeting up with the bf later and cooking him dinner! ^_^

this morning scale was 168.9!! i was surprised cuz i felt a little "heavy" after my dinner last night... plus i can't believe my weight has been going down all through TOM!! we'll see if today's cheat will be able to put a dent in my progress, haha...

happy weekend, all!

Okay, is it just because I'm Canadian (with roots to French Canada), that mayo sounds delicious on everything? Not that I'd touch it now, mind you, but yeah. Mayo and fries, here, is a thing.

That, and fries dipped in ice cream. And smothered in cheese curds and gravy. Yeah, we're weird. As an entire country. XD
