I FINALLY leave for Chicago tomorrow morning!  I can't wait!

Today was a good day for a variety of reasons.  I got my highlights touched up and my hair trimmed, went to lunch and had minestrone soup along with a million diet cokes, went shopping and bought (black velvet pants, black tights, awesome jewelry, and some red 5 inch heels courtesy of Jessica Simpson), and I fit into my jeans that I bought in high school...glorious.  It's weird that I'm just now realizing that I've lost a lot of weight, and I think never stepping on the scale has helped tremendously.  I only ate about 600 calories today at the most, but I haven't been keeping an exact count lately.  I think I just kind of judge things on quantity and mentally go through what I'm having in my head, and it stops me from constantly thinking about it and making me binge.  I don't know.  It's just strange seeing myself in the mirror sometimes and realizing that I'm finally shrinking.  Sure, I'm a size 6 and would like to be a 0, but at least it's progress!  But I do know that my relatives are going to make comments about my size but whatever.  I technically only went down one size, but it looks like more because I have certain assets that refuse to shrink...aka my ass.  So while my legs get smaller, my butt decides to stay exactly where it is.  I guess it makes me look more proportionate, though, but it makes me self conscious when I have a little bubbly creature following me everywhere.

Anyway, I will be sure to write more tomorrow, but I'm saying this on the assumption that I'll have wireless internet access...not guaranteed.  So if I don't write anything for a few days, then let's hope that I'm properly not eating, losing weight, and having a grand ole time.  K?

And Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Well, last week was incredibly stressful for me.  I actually spent more than 9 hours straight on Thursday night finishing all of my chemistry assignments.  The only break I took all night was to walk to the vending machine to grab another diet coke; I didn't listen to music, get on any social websites, look at my phone, etc...just 9 hours of straight chemistry.  I left the lab at 5:30 in the morning and felt like I was doing the infamous "walk of shame," except that I was up all night doing homework not partying and hooking up with a random guy.  Oh the thrilling life I lead.

I had a huge chemistry assignment to do this weekend that my professor didn't give us until Friday, so I couldn't even procrastinate.  It's due tomorrow...or rather, in several hours, and I'm almost done.  Tomorrow will be a nice day, though, because I'm getting my nails touched up, going to class, and then going home for Thanksgiving.  And Tuesday, I'm getting my highlights touched up as well and long hair trimmed (it needs it badly), and then I'm hoping to get a pair of heeled closed toed shoes because all of my heels are too summery.  And finally, Wednesday?  Off to Chicago!  I'm soooo excited, especially to see my cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and to experience one of our classic family gatherings.  They're so entertaining and stereotypical; our family is like a comedy sometimes, I swear.

I'll be bringing my computer since I have so much homework to do over the break, so I'll make sure to update.
