I wrote this once and there was an error, which is incredibly frustrating, but I feel like it's important for me to do this for my personal accountability.

I woke up today around 12:30. I hate waking up that late. I feel like a loser and I'm pathetic and I've wasted the day. Larry stays up all night playing video games and even though we are never in the same room anymore, I feel guilty going to bed hours before him. I don't like never seeing him. I already feel like we've grown apart and my sleeping normal hours would be the last straw on that camel's back. I will be up before 9 this week. I have to do it for myself. I wish he would compromise and wake up more than a half an hour before he went to work.

I took my thyroid medication around 12:45 with my morning coffee. I had a cup of Vanilla Biscotti with half the sugar and creamer I usually use. I'm proud of myself for making the decision to use half, but I'm still angry that I used any at all. I think if I can cut those calories out of my daily routine, I'd be much better off.

I spent the next 4 hours sitting at the computer. I occasionally did some reps with the kettle ball, but not as much as I could have. I watched The Biggest Loser while I worked on Amazon. I'm not 100% sure if it is inspiring or detrimental.

Around 3 o'clock I needed something to eat. About two hours after taking my medication if I don't eat something, my stomache just turns on me and I get so sick. So I went into the startling bare kitchen to find something to eat. I decided to have toast and peanut butter. I got the bread out of the breadbox and out of the bag and into the toaster before I remembered I had Larry pick up some bananas last night. I put the bread back into the bag and into the breadbox and ate a banana. I looked up the calories and two slices of toast with peanut butter has some where between 500 and 600 calories. The banana? 105. I'm pretty proud of making that decision to save myself 400 - 500 calories.

When I left to take my packages to the post office around 5, I called my mom on the way. She informed me that the post office was closed. Sigh. However, she was eating subway. And that sounded delicious. I told her I would grab some and stop over. I went to Subway and I was instantly tempted to get the Seafood Sensation sub. It was a five dollar footlong! But I opted for the healthier choice and got a roasted chicken breast on 9 grain wheat with veggies, no cheese, and mustard. I really wanted that Seafood Sensation on Italian herbs and cheese with provolone cheese and mayo! I looked up the calories and the Seafood would have been a whopping 1200 calories! My sub? 650! I saved myself 550 calories and my sub was delicious!

After eating, I suggested everyone play the Wii together. Quickly, everyone turned into just me. I created my own Mii and started playing Wii fit. The Wii board said 291. My scale at home says 294, which is down 2 pounds in two days. I worked out for 2 hours, but my official time is 59 minutes and 407 calories. I'm planning on going back over at least 5 times a week to do that workout.

So now I'm home for the evening and faced with the challenge of what to cook Larry for dinner. I'm not hungry now. But will I be in two hours? Probably. Do I cook separate meals for Larry and myself? Do I cook something for Larry and eat in moderation? I guess I'll let my flog know tomorrow!
