maybe just one night longer?

Archive for April 2009

i only lost one pound last week, which was sort of a bummer since this upcoming week is my last week on medifast, and i was really hoping to be under 140lbs. by the time i had to pull off of the diet, and that leaves me 3-4lbs. to lose this week in order for that to happen. we’ll see. but yeah, total of 23lbs. now in 7 weeks. not too shabby.

other than that nothing exciting is happening. i am rushing to finish the semester and be done with the semester from hell. kill it with fire.

i’m really broke now. but oh well, its almost summer and i can return to dummy’s and be miserable all summer. miserable but somewhat wealthy. hopefully.


lost 3 pounds last week. so i’m at a total of 22 pounds, 144lbs., and 14 away from my goal. cool. since this is my last month formally on the diet, i’d have to lose 7lbs. each week in order to get to my goal. so instead, i’m aiming for getting under 140lbs. before i have to get off the diet, so i can knock out the last >10lbs. on my own. hopefully i get over being sick soon so that i can exercise again while being able to breathe. i’ll def be going to megan’s hip hop classes both monday and wednesday and maybe i’ll squeeze in a jog on friday.

last night was my NRHH inductions (National Residence Hall Honorary). being inducted means that i have been recognized as being one of the top 1% of residence on campus. it was fun, i got to hear a blerb that was written about me by strangers with the help of my boss. there were cookies and cake. i wanted them. but i didn’t touch them.

i’m broke btw. i make stupid money mistakes constantly. but whatever. that’s why i am working an extra 2 hours today and sitting at a desk indoors for 5 hours straight while quadmania is going on, girltalk is playing, and it’s 75 degrees outside. oh well, i can leave the window open i guess. but i want nothing more than to get a good book and sit outside in the grass and read all day. or have a picnic.

on the note of money, i really want a robe. a silk robe.

and a new phone. mine sucks.

too much has been going on. literally life as i knew it at home no longer exists. when i go home for summer break, i am going to be entering in to a strange, unfamiliar world where i have no idea how anything is going to play out. it used to be that when i was home i longed to be in school, and when i was at school i longed to be at home. now i long to be at school minus the classes all the time. this semester has been so incredibly tough for me. but hey, i have lost 19 lbs. as of last Saturday. tomorrow i will post in here and let you know the end of week six results.

I tried cauliflower pizza crust. It was pretty tasty, here is the recipe if anyone wants it, its a really healthy alternative to pizza. Just be sure to get fat-free cheese and low carb sauce.

You Won’t Believe it’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower*
1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp fennel
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley

**pizza or alfredo sauce

toppings (make sure meats are cooked)
mozzarella cheese

Delicious and easy.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.

Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).

Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.

Place under a broiler (grill for the Europeans) at high heat just until cheese is melted **.

its insane how different i look and feel. and i love that my bmi is of average weight now. so all i have to do really is tone up my stomach area, because i looked up my measurements on an online clothing store and my hip size was to fit in to their extra small and my waist size was to fit in to their small. i am so stoked, i just can’t wait until the summer when i can wear bathing suits and stuff.

this is probably my last month formally on medifast, after this month i think i will be ordering just a few boxes of things and incorporating them in to my diet in order to work my way back to eating normally.

i cannot wait to have turkey on wheat bread again. sometimes the dining hall doesn’t have chicken, so i have to eat lunch meat turkey by itself. and that is no fun. so i cannot wait to have it on wheat toast or even in a wrap. i don’t even remember what white bread is like, which is good i guess since i shouldn’t really have it.

updates tomorrow.
