Today I gave in and had a coffee cake from starbucks...Although I know I should have eaten the orange slices in the fridge here at work, I just was in the mood for some sugary cake. It pretty much has been my first real slip in the past weeks, so I am not going to be so hard on myself.

My bf and I are still trying to figure out where we are going to move. While I want to find an apt close to home, my bf wants to buy a house in the middle of bumbleville Western PA. Although I want a house really bad, I dont know if I am willing to move away from my family and my comfort zone (being metropolitan ny nj) to do so. However, I do know that there is no way in **** we will ever be able to afford a house in northern central nj probably for about another 10 years. Real estate differences in everywhere else vs nj really make me crazy. Why is the same home I like in nj thats 300,000 sell for 42,000 in the midwest? I mean I clearly know why ..LOCATION..but still, its so frustrating.

Virginia has a lot to offer. Richmond is nice, and so is Charlottesville. Raleigh North Carolina is pretty cool.

Robsia, you look so nice... Your avatar looks like you, I'm sure that was done purposely...

Today is snowy and windy... The only plans I have so far is to go to work...

Thank you - yes, it was intentional. I guess that's my cartoon 'ideal' version of myself.

It seems that nasal decongestant spray is an effective appetite suppressant . Or is it just not being able to smell or taste what I was eating?

I lost two pounds this week. And I can breathe again today Hooray for head colds!

Have a great weekend all!

Hope it's okay if I jump in here...

I know I haven't been around since the summer, since I've been studying abroad in Spain since the end of August and it's hard to keep up with posting and everything. I feel like it's a good idea to come back though, to keep myself accountable. Living in another country has been both fun and difficult, but diet-wise I'm not gonna lie - it's really, really hard! I have been trying to exercise (I joined a gym last semester and next week plan to join one near my apartment) but it has not been enough to offset the 5-8(?)lb weight gain that has crept around my midsection.

My goal for this semester is to exercise at least 4x/week at the gym, although I am not focusing on weight loss right now since I feel it is unrealistic. I have very little control over what I eat, since my host mother makes a lot of heavier dishes and meals geared towards her kids' tastes. But even if I don't lose any weight, I will still be healthier by the time I leave if I exercise anyway.

To be completely honest (and this is slightly embarrassing for me to admit) I am ALWAYS thinking of/fantasizing about going home in May, when I will be able to return to my amazing gym and eat whatever HEALTHY food I want...dreaming about getting the weight off again. However, I realize that this is a terrible mindset to have, since I should live in this moment rather than wait around for life to get better.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a good weekend...I plan to start the week off on the right foot by joining the gym on Monday!

Hi Ladies,

Quick fly by to change my ticker. I didn't have a stellar week but managed to weigh in 1 lb lighter yesterday. Yay!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'll post more later.

You look great Robsia.

I have been eating well and started lifting very heavy weights scale has actually gone up but I am not too worried since I think I am just retaining water and its TOM to boot. I think this will pass soon. Had an awesome workout today. I am sore already.

Blah totally off the wagon after this weekend! A big problem area for me that I have targeted is being at work.. I work at a restaurant and when I am busy and hungry and someone gets an order of french fries to share with everyone it is just way too hard to say no! And then once I eat french fries I throw in the towel and scrap my healthy eating for the day.. Sigh.. Hoping this week is a better one
