I weighed myself this morning and I am down 2 pounds. That’s awesome. Only 18 more to go. I have got to get this weight off. I know- totally know my pattern of obsessively focusing on my weight until I lose it, then eating KitKats and pans of brownies until I decide I’m too fat and start obsessing again is way unhealthy. Ha. Wouldn’t it be awesome if that was my biggest issue? John and I walked a little over 4 miles yesterday. He was not happy about it after around the 2 mile mark. Last summer I had to do 3 with him, then take him home and finish my miles by myself. Hopefully if we walk regularly, I can build him back up to 5 at least. He’s 10 pounds overweight. When we get out of school, I will take him by the vet and weigh him to see what he’s at. That gives us 2 more months to try to lose some weight. I cut back a little on his food, and he’s walking with me, so he should be able to lose some.
So last night I was Tindering and I came across a man I knew from when I was in high school. He was older than me and from the next town over. Some of my older friends were friends with him, and he may have even dated some of or one of my friends. Anyway, he’s a teacher and coach still back there. He seems really nice and sincere, but I know he’s dumb and probably a republican, and probably at least somewhat religious, and probably at least somewhat racist. So there’s that. I will go out with him- give him the benefit of the doubt- I mean, Adam was dumb, but I had a good time with him and we got along pretty well.
The other guy I talked to quite a bit yesterday is definitely smart. He went to grad school at Columbia- has a brother that’s a lawyer and a brother that’s a physician. That tells me his family values education and raised smart kids. At first he seemed like he might have a touch of autism- formal language, extensive vocabulary- but last night he was more casual- I am supposed to meet him this evening. I guess we’ll see how that works out. He is really skinny in his pics – a big runner- it would be good for me to be around someone like that. ha. It might keep me motivated.
I don’t know if we will be going back to school Monday. Some people are talking about a sick out. I am not saying anything. If it happens, I will contact my school to see if there’s anything I can do to help make sure our kids have food.
