Sorry, Kawaii it was a last minute "We're going out, can you make it?" kind of thing, and I was feeling people-deprived We went to Club Asia in Shibuya, and I was less than impressed. I couldn't hear a thing, there were some grabby guys, and the staff confiscated my purse and told me that I could either pay 500 yen to claim it on the spot and leave or 3000 yen to check it then retrieve it without a ticket later. I'm really not a club person in general, but the staff was being really rude and no one was dancing except us, the other gaijin, and (temporarily) anyone that one of my friends grabbed and forced to dance). I'm not generally into clubbing, so I've only been to one other (down in Osaka) and found that much more enjoyable because it wasn't just a few gaijins and a go-go dancer or two on stage actually trying to enjoy themselves.

I'm glad that I don't have a scale right now, since, while I DID spend a good 4 hours dancing following 3 hours of walking around Tokyo and a full day of jumping around with 2nd graders, we also had Mosburger for dinner (could have been worse since I got the salad set, but my mouth tasted salty for hours after), sugary drinks, and little izakaya munchies while waiting for the train station to open in the morning. I figured that I go out rarely enough that one night probably wouldn't hurt, but I'm probably holding water like a sponge.

KissKiss: My running around was more like going to the mall and doing errands. I don't really run unless I am on the Arc machine at the gym lol

Kawaii: Yeah I can understand that. Though, I have had to get rid of a lot of my shoes. I buy new shoes and then end up wearing the old ones until wayyyy past their prime because I love them and then replace them, but their replacements aren't as good as the others. even if the sole of the shoe comes off. Haha.

LaughingLagomoprh: I'm not sure if it's a Canadian thing, but I'm not a huge fan. lol

Hotaru: Clubs around here always seem to have rude employees and handsy people. : / Hope you had some fun.

hotaru: oh, i've never been to Asia... shame it was so sucky. i always go to Atom, which is literally across the street from Asia and it is always packed, and it always has lotsa people dancing, and they play pop songs (lady gaga, beyonce, big bang...) which i really love since a lot of clubs here tend to play techno-y crap... plus, there is always a ration of like 80-20 males to females... LOL! that's so weird about your purse too. every club i've ever been to in Japan has had lockers that you can use for 300yen, but more often than not i've always kept my purse with me and never given any trouble for it... the only thing they can get anal with is if you have any meds on you... be it headache tablets or contraceptive pill, they'll ask you to check it with them (for free). i'm sorry you had such a crappy time though. i'll make a mental note to never go there!!

bea: eheh, yeah, if i have a pair i love i'll wear them til they die, basically, and then i have like 30 more pairs which are still like new cuz i almost never wear them. lol. these days, i am forcing myself to wear heels as often as i can cuz i wanna train myself to be able to wear really high ones!! i suck at wearing high heels, and it's one of my resolutions for this year to learn to do it! lol.

morning guys! although, it's like 2pm already! lol. but i slept til like 12:30 so... i'm up 1kg this morning! woot! cheat day wasn't terribly bad. bf had to leave earlier than expected, so we did lunch instead of dinner, which means i was left to my own devices for dinner... however, i was still too stuffed from lunch so i ended up just snacking on a few things. honestly, i shoulda just left it there but i was like "it's my cheat day! i must at least eat SOME crap!" lol. so i went to the convenience store and bought a few things... ice cream and chocolate... i didn't even eat that much. it didn't taste very good either. i ended up eating an apple with some peanut butter. lol.

today bf is running a freakin marathon! lol. he didn't even train for it... what a silly boy... he's doing it with his colleagues from work that basically roped him into it. i wanted to go cheer him but he basically convinced me that it would be very boring and that he wouldn't have time for me so meh. plus it was early. lol. i'm jealous of how fit he is though. yesterday, he was doing push-ups in my house in his underwear... lol! and he was looking so hot! haha. i can't even do girl push-ups properly... oh! but in other matters, i guess this counts as a somewhat nsv... after he'd gone to shower, i decided to put on his dress shirt and was prancing around in front of the mirror wearing it. he was laughing at me and i was like "in the movies, chicks always wear the boy's shirt like this!". granted, it wasn't all loose and sexy like in the movies, it was pretty tight, but a) my bf is a skinny japanese dude, not a big white guy so his shirt was an M, and b) i'm still nowhere near as small as those girls in the movies, but i was still pretty chuffed that i was standing there wearing his shirt! lol.

Kawaii: Ugh...I wish I'd known that...we were debating between the two, then a guy who was supposed to DJ later in the night approached us from Club Asia, so we took a shot with him (yeah, we were being classy and pre-gaming in the street) and went to that club instead of Atom. They had coin lockers, but I think we got there at the same time as the salarymen (though I have no idea why they came to a club given that they all just stood there nursing their drinks, not dancing, and not able to converse all night...I wouldn't pay the cover for that), so there was a huge queue to get to them and we decided that it would just be easier to hold our stuff.

Congrats on the shirt! I don't understand how Japanese men have such narrow shoulders. It makes me sad. I have a size M fleece-lined hoodie that I grabbed in the men's section because I wanted an outside shirt that actually went all the way down to my wrists and it's massive on me everywhere except in the shoulders. The shoulders are a little looser now than when I got it, but still...I'm a girl. I'm not supposed to look like a linebacker when I stand next to Japanese men! TT^TT It's even worse because I'm taller than a lot of the men that work at my schools (my theory is that they purposely hire smaller guys so that they're less intimidating to the little kids...I'm about average guy-height on the train) so they make me stand in the back row for photos and I look even more massive and out of place. And feet...one day the vice principal was bored at the copier and happened to notice that my feet were bigger than his...so naturally he polled the entire school and determined that my 28cm canoes were the biggest. *Bangs head against the wall* I'm absolutely not sized to live in Japan...

Sick as a dog today...so glad that schools are closed tomorrow, so I get an extra day to recuperate. I think I'm going to take a nap and hope that my sinuses don't succeed in their mission to suffocate me while I'm asleep. My boyfriend called on skype this morning to show me how much snow had fallen (those not in the US may or may not have seen, but New England is getting mauled by a blizzard atm...3.5 feet and counting at my house) and I looked like death on the camera. I was so embarrassed. And spaced out on cold medication. When he told me that he wanted to cuddle me and make me feel better, my reaction was "Noooo, I'd drool on you. I get drooly when I'm sick." Yeeeeah. Smooth, Rachel. He laughed and told me that would be okay and told me to make some tea then go back to bed. I haven't gone back to bed yet. I should. I'm still very out of it. I'm sure this is probably incoherent. Banana for scale.

hotaru: yeaaaah, Atom is the sh*t! you shoulda gone lol, my bf actually has quite wide shoulders, he's built like a swimmer. he always complains that clothes are too small for him and often buys M or L sized shirts (which in Japan, isn't saying much...) just to fit his shoulders in, even though he has a tiny tiny waist and should probably wear S for that. he's also really tall. mwaha. can you tell that i am totally infatuated with him? did i mention he has abs?? lol. your bf sounds sweet! i'm sure he wouldn't mind a little drool! lol. you can see him soon! yay!

kalaya: you should come! it's a party here!! (although don't go where Hotaru lives... lol)

poop. i meant to wake up early this morning, to regulate my body to be ok with getting up even earlier on tuesday, but i slept right through my alarm... gah! water weight came down a bit after cheat day so that's good. i'm gonna go do my body revolution, and hopefully drag myself to the gym to swim. i have been soooooo lazy with the gym since i started working out at home! i feel bad like i'm throwing my money away... *sigh*

other than that, not much to report. happy monday everyone!

Good to see everyone doing so well! I figured out my problem with my stagnant weight loss, which can be completely contributed to too much sodium and underestimation of my caloric intake. By tweaking both of those things, along with continuing P90X, I should start seeing the scale move some more. Work has been crazy the past few weeks but everything has adjusted and calmed down again this week, so that might help a tad too.

KawaiiCandie:how did your boyfriend's marathon go? and yay on being able to wear his shirt!

Pink Hurricane: yeah, I tend to hold on to weight if I am getting too much sodium. good luck this week! it sounds like you are doing all the right things to see a weight loss :0

-------------------

okay, so here are my updates, girls. I went on TWO dates this weekend. player, player right? LOL

Friday night I went to a restaurant with GUY A. it did rain, so we did not walk the pier but instead met at restaurant. it was nice. I found him cute, and he seemed like a nice guy. only problem is that he seemed really introverted. and while I didn't think I'd mind, I kind of did. He kissed me good night. and it was nice. lol, everyone see where this is going? I just felt more friend vibe that bf vibe. he did text me to hang out next week, but I have yet to respond because of....Guy B.

Okay, GUY B was saturday. We met up for drinks. AMAZING. It was awesome. Wonderful. Perfect. We just really, really clicked. Our conversation was never lagging. It just flowed very naturally. They practically had to kick us out of the place we were at because we just lost track of the time. wow. this guy is so amazing.
I was really worried because he is fit and into his diet (he's strict Paleo). I was worried that he wouldn't be attracted to me. But, no he was into me. I'll just say he was very vocal about his attraction (although it was said sweetly and not creepily). and he's a good kisser

I can't wait to see him again (plans for Tuesday dinner). I'm so excited! although the realist in me is shouting, don't get TOO excited. it's only been one date. But, wow, what a date!

Happy Monday, everyone

Kisskiss - the last time I had a first date where they had to kick us out of the place was with a guy I ended up being with for about 3 years...so that's saying something! I'm happy that you had great experiences with your dates.

hi there laaaadies! little busy in my world, so iím playing catch up.

kiss kiss: yaaay! poor guy a, since it seems like heís into you, but yay guy b! iím excited to hear more...

pink hurricaine: yep. salt bloater over here too. hope the tweaks work out for you, and the scale starts being kind.

kawaii: did u make it to gym? iíve done that too... i got a membership to online yoga classes, and went a good 6 mnths paying the fee and doing like 1 class/month. silly. at least youíre working out in some capacity though!

hotaru: girl, i hope youíre feeling better!! talking about drooling and dancing bananas, hah.
_____
I didnít weigh in this week. Iím doing well, and clothes are relaxing their vice like grip on my rolls, so i can tell iím losing a bit, but i get all obsessive-y about the number, and i donít want to get discouraged. so. maybe iíll weigh next week

iíve been doing lots of yoga and running, and itís getting easier! 1/2 marathon here i come!

I'm back! And I'm married, fully honeymoon-ed and now just sorting things out before I go back to work on Thursday. The wedding was absolutely fantastic, I cant believe it went so smoothly, but it was pretty much organised with military precision! Even the weather played ball for us. Now ready to get on with the rest of our lives lol

Peach- when is your half marathon? Good luck! Especially if it's your first!

kisskiss- its totally ok to get excited! How often do you meet people you get excited about??

Pink hurricane- well done on figuring out your hold up, salt is such a tricky one! Hope your scale moves soon

hotaru- sorry you're sick! I hate being sick, especially colds, so I feel for you. Is it winter in Japan at the moment? Have some tea and stay in bed!

kawaii- a marathon without training?? Thats crazy! I'm jealous of him too! I hope it kicks his butt :P

kisskiss: he said he did well, but somehow they're not gonna give him his time till next week?? weird... but whatever... sounds like guy B is a winner!! i would just follow my heart, and seriously, i cannot be with 2 guys at the same time, i just can't... i was once in a situation like that though, where i flushed the "nice guy" i didn't feel any sparks with, for the cool boy who made my heart flutter, and said cool boy ended up dumping 2 months later, in the unclassiest of ways so... beware!

peachflesh: yeah, i went! oh man, i did worse that that before... where i used to live, i was a member at the gym but it was too far for me to bother going... even to cancel my membership... i ended up paying the fees for over a year without even showing my face!! lol. that was embarrassing... that's great about your clothes getting loser!!! i'm the same though, i just wanna see that number go DOWN! even though i look and feel better, i just wanna see a lower number! lol. we can do this!

Icon: super mega congrats!!! and welcome back
yeah, he had a "practice" run 3 times over the last 2 months. that was his training. lol. hate him... apparently he did well. and all he was like after was "i'm sleepy. gonna go take a nap"... wtf?!? seriously, life is so unfair. he can stuff his face full of junk and remain plank-like, he starts working out for 2 weeks and develops abs, and can fall asleep anywhere at the drop of a hat... gah!

hey guys! well, i'm just about to go to bed. had a loooong day. we're doing speech tests at school and that's boring, and then after school i had to go to the offices of the company that hires me to discuss some stuff, and it's a bit far and i stayed there chatting to the guy for an hour, so i didn't get home before 7pm, then dinner, then finally my workout. i'm tired. I hope I see a lower number on the scale tomorrow because i was really depressed by the random - totally uncalled for - increase this morning. i've been a good little girl and so scale should go down! not up! meh.

hope everyone has a good day.
