Life is funny.

Just when I think I've got it good, and admit it, I consequently cause my OWN drama. Today, I knew I was going to be OK when I stopped myself. I am seriously wondering if I should talk to a doctor about having PMDD.

Not so much POINTS counting this week, but I've been watching what I eat and being smart. I will weigh in this Tuesday to see how I've done. This will gauge whether or not I need to mix things up or keep things up.

Going out tonight. To a bar to meet up with my friend who moved out of town but is back for a one night only. Last night I went to a Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse and ate all my din-din plus some fried ice cream. Mmmm mMMmMm nom nom whatever noise you make when something is great. I spent $54 on the whole meal: miso soup, salad, veggies, fried rice, shrimp appetizer, steak and two glasses of cold lychee sake. Then I got suckered into going to a bar and did that for a little bit.

All of this cold weather is making me a lush again?

I hear you about the cold weather. I read somewhere that in the fall, your appetite can increase to put on extra fat layers for winter insulation (which is why it's more difficult to lose weight in colder months than warmer ones).

While I get that our ancestors needed it, I feel screwed by them anyway.

Maybe THAT'S my problem...the weather! :) Although, I have to say I love the cooler weather. :)

PS - LOVE the hair, way cute.

Yeah...that's why restaurants sometimes keep the temperature deliberately on the chilly side. Bastards.

Also, is it just me, or does working out become less fun in the winter despite the fact that I won't overheat like normal? My muscles just freeze up like dogs. "I'm NOT going outside to pee. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Too cold!"

Yup. Just like that.

Sorry, I am now adrift in a reverie involving a wintery log cabin, a roaring fire and a vat of red wine. Furry rug and sexy bloke non-negotiable.

Nom Nom indeed.
