Day 365

Talk about going out with a bang. Not only was today my last day of vacation but today marks Day 365 of my blog. An ENTIRE year of documenting everything I ate! Looking back, I have made huge changes in my eating habits. Before this, I used to go get fast food at drive thrus at LEAST 1-2 times a week. Now it’s seriously been cut down to about 1-2 times a month. 

My weight has gone down a bit but not to make that considerable of a difference. But I’ve managed to be about 5lbs less than what I started with. I was about 140lbs when I started this thing I think and now I’m about 127 - 133 lb range.

Also, I’ve never gone to the gym this much consistently in my life before. Usually, I’ll start going to the gym and be really into it but will stop going after a few months.. Now, I’m to this point where I feel guilty about missing work outs for more than a few days. 

Overall, I’ve proved to myself that I can be really consistent with things in my life when I want to. IE: keeping up with this blog, working out, doing once a month cheat days, etc. I’m going to retire this blog for now but I intend to continue with these habits of eating salads at least for lunch Mon-Fri and possible few for dinners as well, working out during my one hour lunch Mon-Fri, and continue staying away from fast food joints. 

Today I ate: 

  • Dunkin Donuts for breakfast: breakfast fried chicken biscuit sandwich with hashbrowns, 2 donuts, and an iced vanilla coffee
  • 3 outta 4 slices of a personal pan Pizza Hut pizza from the airport
  • Another few bites from that massive Mickey Mouse rice crispie treat from Downtown Disney
  • Burger King for dinner: Fried chicken sandwich with fries and a Sprite
  • Some stir-fry shrimp and rice (when we finally got to my boyfriend’s house at night)

I told you I went out with a bang!! 

Til I decide to blog about something else again.. Ciao, Tumblr!!!

Day 364

Hanging out with a bunch of dudes is TIRING. So today, since it’s our last day in Melbourne, I took my boyfriend’s sister and her daughter to a local nail salon to relax and get our nails done!

Day 363 

Went to Orlando today to visit Downtown Disney! It was a pretty fun time <3 Cept for the fact that it was boiling HOT and walking around outside was a WORK OUT. But we made some pitstops to get beers on the way ;) Everything about Disneyland is so cute. I loved it =)

For dinner, we had a nice sit down dinner with everyone at home =) It was great. =)

Today was one of the most memorable days! We successfully surprised my boyfriend’s little niece!! Once we got to their house in Melbourne, we texted her mom to take her into the mom’s room while we had her dad open the garage for us so that we could sneak into her own room. One of the other brothers rang the doorbell. She ran to open the door and we could hear from her room “UNCLE CHARLIE!!!!!!”. I was already teary eyed!! And then he asked her to show him her room and when she opened the door, we yelled SURPRISE!!! She was shocked! =’) Too cute! We’ve missed you! <3

There’s a strip of just restaurants/bars/clubs with so many people and neon lights. It was beautiful! We started out night at Wet Willies where I got a “Ninja turtle” which was pretty yummy =D Then we did some bar/club hopping but didn’t stay out too late since we have to leave early tomorrow morning for Melbourne to visit my boyfriend and brother’s sister and niece for the remainder of our stay here in Florida. It’s been amazing, Miami!!

Day 358

BYE SAN JOSE! 

Left for Miami today on the red-eye after working halfday.. Omg frickin Delta.. We took a flight to Miami with one stop. SFO -> LAX -> MIA. Well on the flight from SFO -> LAX, they gave us a frickin VEGGIE PLATTER. Who does that..!?? It was too funny. Thank goodness I came with my box of Cheezits! Lol 

Today I ate: 

  • Fage Yogurt
  • Cup of coffee
  • Salad for lunch
  • 2-3 shots of Hen with Coke backs before getting picked up by my boyfriend and brothers for the airport. Couldn’t get vacay started any earilier

  • The crackers that came in the veggie platter and a Sprite on the flight to LAX
  • A shot of Jameson at the bar at LAX
  • Cookies that thankfully the next flight provided for us and a ginger ale (screw you, veggies!)

Day 357

Leaving for Miami TOMORROW! I can not wait!!!! I still have a ton of things to do today after work… I get anxiety for trips like this!! I only feel RELAXED when I’m safely at the gate ON TIME. 

Also, I came across this article about how TSA allows you to bring in 3oz bottles of LIQUOR (those mini-mini bottles you find in hotels fridges sometimes) onto the plane so you can drink on your plane ride to your destination! I was totally about to go get those for myself and the guys but then I scrolled all the way thru and in the “updates” section dated Feb 2014, there’s a government code on there that says passengers can’t drink alcoholic beverages that are NOT served by the attendants.. =(

I rather not risk doing something stupid and getting kicked off the plane or something. Well our flight is a red-eye anyways.. So hopefully I can get some sleep..! (Or just drink before we go to the airport/at the airport lol)

Today I ate: 

  • Cup of coffee 
  • Fage yogurt with blue berry
  • Prepackaged Santa Fe Chicken salad with added extra lettuce and added extra grilled chicken: lettuce, shredded cheese, corn, some tortilla, grilled chicken, and Southwestern ranch dressing. 
  • The same salad for dinner: Prepackaged Santa Fe Chicken salad with added extra lettuce and added extra grilled chicken: lettuce, shredded cheese, corn, some tortilla, grilled chicken, and Southwestern ranch dressing. 

Day 356

Oh man.. I definitely needed today off X( 

Hopefully it’s a quiet day at both jobs today.. Zzzz

I packed after my 2 shifts today tho.. Well not packed necessarily.. but laid out all the clothes I wanna take.. Now I just need to go through my makeup/hair things.. My boyfriend and I are sharing luggage. No one believes me but I think it’s possible! I mean, we are going to MIAMI where its so HUMID you won’t really wanna wear too much clothes.. So I’m wearing a pair of jeans on the plane but other than that, everything is shorts/skirts/thin maxi dresses and tanks/tees and of course bikinis! So I think it’s doable!
