Channeling “The Dude”

Big Lebowski, anyone?

Today was freezing!  I think the daytime high was 14F!  Right now it’s about 7F!

To beat the cold, a bunch of Cornell planner headed to the bowling alley! Cornell actually has its own bowling alley on campus (in the basement of one of the gyms!)

Little known fact about me: I was once in a bowling league!  <– Nerdy! I know!

I’m glad I got out, because today was one of those days were I had to remind myself to smile.  It worked though!  I got myself out the door, unburied my car, picked up a friend and headed to the lanes.

There was pizza



Have you ever been to a place where you have to keep your own bowling score on paper!?!?!

But overall… a ton of fun!

Honestly, today has not been fun.  I have been a bottomless pit all day.

Today was the first day in the past two weeks that I actually felt like I had to stop myself from eating when I wanted to and all I could think about was food.  All day my stomach felt empty no matter how much I ate/drank.  I tried everything… wait ten minutes before eating something to see if you really want it… I did.  Drink water… still wanted food.  Drink hot tea… still wanted food, had about 5 cups of tea today.  By the time I went bowling, I had already eaten 1,500 calories (which I realize isn’t that much but this is the amount that I’ve been eating most day the past two weeks without feeling hungry).  At the bowling alley I had 2 pieces of pizza and about probably 5 cookies and many chips.

The thing is, even after that, I wasn’t full.  I wasn’t hungry, but I wasn’t full.  Do you ever have those days where you just can’t seem to eat enough?

I’m not sure what it is.

I’m trying not to feel guilty because what’s done is done.  One evening is not going to derail my efforts at a healthy lifestyle; however, I can’t help but feel a little disappointed that I couldn’t stop after 1 piece of pizza and 1 cookie.  Oh well!  What’s a girl to do?

Tomorrow will be a better day, full of smiles!

Now, I might need to re-watch The Big Lebowski (Yay for Netflix watch instantly!), because I flew through those two discs of Mad Men I have!

Have a great night!
