Worst weigh-in Wednesday of all time.

Gooooood morning fools.

Well I weighed myself this morning to find I've gained almost 10 pounds over the last few weeks and I'm back up to 193. I almost cried.

I haven't completely been eating like crap, but I've been drinking too much. I can admit that. It all kind of came to a head on Sunday when I day-drank to such an extreme that I got sick and burst a blood vessel in my eye. SO that looks cool. I also felt hungover for pretty much 2 whole days. I also spent ALL OF MY MONEY. What came over me, I'm not sure.

So now that that 2 day hangover is over, I'm starting fresh. I'm going to eat well, I'm going to work out diligently, and I'm not going to drink until I get back to Memphis the first week of May.

I'm really feeling down on myself and I don't know what's going on. I have these yo-yo fluctuations with not only my diet and exercise habits, but also with my self-esteem.

Sorry this post has been extremely depressing and not exciting at all. Praying that by next week I'll have magically dropped the 10 pounds I seem to have gained. Womppp wommmmmmp.

5 on Friday again!

Happy Friday, homeskilletz.

It's been a long time since I've participated in 5 on Friday--hell, it's been a long time since I've done much of anything blog-related--so today, I'm linking up.

1. This week I completed my 2nd and final application for grad school!!!

I have officially applied for the MBA Programs at Arizona State and the University of Nebraska (online, of course).

Please feel free to send some prayers up that I get accepted into one of them!

2. I've been trying really hard to be more dilligent about working out and eating better. I even let my marine friend-boy kick my ass in the gym the last 2 days. Literally, he kicked my ass. My ass hurts. My legs hurt. My arms hurt. I was mad. But I need to start lifting and doing cardio if I want to see results.

3. Some exciting news...I'm hopefully going to be moving out soon! Like a real grownup!!! I need to get 2 small credit card debts paid off which I think I can do in 2 months, and I'm going to have to stick to a super-tight budget...but I think I can do it.

Generally my attitude toward being frugal and sticking to a budget goes something like this...

But I know I can do it if I put my mind to it, and I know that it's time for me to get on my feet as much as possible.

4. I got an iPhone 5S this weekend!!!

Yes I got a lifeproof pink camo case. It's not terribly different from the 4S (most of the big differences like the faster processor and the touch ID really don't matter at all to me), but the internet speed is MUCH faster since it's 4G not 3G.

5. I have to give a shoutout to the amazing weather San Diego has been having. In 2 weeks I've probably gotten 5 or 6 shages tanner. I'm not complaining.

This is my cousin we call Tooty.

Alright. I guess that's all I got. Hope y'all have a great weekend!

What? A blog post? What's that?

Holy s&*$ fools!!! It's been a hot minute since I've posted anything on here.

If anyone is even still slightly interested in my mostly-boring life, I apologize. I really want to get back into blogging regularly again. I'm still struggling to get into a real groove/schedule with working out/dieting, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.

As far as things at work go, everything is great! I'm happy with my job for the first time since I graduated college. It's a weird feeling, actually. I'm still broke as a joke, but isn't everyone my age?

I re-joined my gym and have been going and doing circuits. Now that the time has changed I want to start doing 1 or 2 runs after week each week, since it stays light for so long here. I'm sure I'm basically going to be starting at square 1 with running again, because it's been so long since I've done it for longer than a mile...but oh well.

I did see this girl working out in the circuit room last week though who literally had the exact body I would love to have. She wasn't skinny at all. She was probably a size 8 or 10. Her legs were actually probably as big as mine, but they were SOLID MUSCLE. It made me think about all the attention thigh gaps have been getting lately...

So anyway. I'd like to have her body. Good luck with that, right!?

So I wish i had more to update y'all on but I really don't. Other than this one little thing....

I'M GOING BACK TO MEMPHIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to my tax return, I was able to buy a roundtri ticket back to Memphis for one of my best friend's weddings. I'll be there May 1st-6th, which isn't nearly long enough, but I'm excited either way :)

I'm literally counting down the days. The next 47 days cannot go by fast enough.

That's all I got today. Sorry I suck so bad.
