What do you expect to be doing ten years from today, and where do you hope to be living?


I hope to be living in Japan and doing the job I love, which is teaching children.

I am not watching that shit.


It's all screwed to hell.

Just thinking...

I was reading fan fiction and I was getting annoyed because I have been finding nothing but crap. Needless to say, when I was in fan-girl anime mode I would have thought these were wonderful. Now that I am older and am not in that mode anymore, -- still a fan-girl for certain pairings and series, mind you -- I find that they have to be written well for me even to get through it.

I have even resorted in going to AFF.net for better writing. 9/10 I find it too instead of the 3/10 from FF.net. Is it because the people are at least 18 or older, well supposed to be anyway?

I even looked at some of my old work and thought what the hell was I thinking about at the time. When I make time I go back and rewrite it too.

On that note, I realized why I stopped writing and I only go back to it from time to time. I do not get constructive critique. I get the usual, which make me happy, but I still want something constructive so I could improve. I used to be able to put one 5 chapters in one sitting. Now I barely write even one, because either they don't review or they say the usual. Usually, it is because they don't review. I can count on my hand out of all the stories I have written, how many reviews were constructive. This is from both sites of AFF.net and FF.net.

A friend of mine online said that she had a dream about me becoming a famous author. I do love writing it is fun for me to do, along with art and web design on the side, but without some constructive critiques I kind of lose motivation. That and I need an editor to look over my stuff at times. When I look at it I see what I meant to type and do not notice the mistakes till days, months, or most likely years later, when I go back and look at it.

Ah well. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Later.

Haven't updated in awhile...

Huh... haven't updated in awhile. Well so far with the diet and without me really exercising at all...not exercising, I have went form a 16 to a 12 in pants size. Think I will stick to it Is anyone else trying or thinking about trying this diet?

End results Day 35

Day 35 update
---------------

Turns out my scale is 10 lbs off, which is odd because I tested it with weights and it showed exactly what it was. So I am not sure which scale to go by. The weird weight machine at the hospital says I am 15 lbs heavier that what the other scale says. So I will be keeping track of both weights. Oh well, I still lost the same amount of pounds and inches. Has anyone else had this problem?

Didn't lose any weight, but have lost inches again.


Measurements (in) ---> 3 inches all around lost


Exercise - Didn't feel like it.

Other things:
-------------
My boss noticed that I was getting smaller. We are both trying to lose weight and he congratulated me yesterday. My Mom even said that you could tell that I was getting slimmer. I can also get into 12 jeans now without much problem.

End of Week 4 - Day 28

Has it already been a month?


Day 28 update (Has it already been a month?)
---------------------------------------------
Last weight and Current weight: 190

Didn't lose any weight this time either, but I am not surprised because we went out of town for a bit. I didn't gain any weight either which I am surprised because of what I was eating. All that walking around a military base in the heat will make you ravenous.

I lost 4 inches in my body. 3 of them where solely in my bust area, which was surprising. Any explanations on this? The last time they went up half an inch each week.

I exercised at bit more this time. Not much,though.
I found I actually started wanting bananas when I stop eating them for a day.

End of week 3 - Day 21

I think I will be posting every 7 days for the end results. I am sure you get the gist of what I am eating for breakfast and whatever I feel like eating for lunch. For now on I will post the week end results.

Day 21
------------
Lost = 0 lbs (Did not lose weight but have lost inches which is still good in my book.)

Measurements for this week
---------------------------
Lost 2 inches all around and gained 1/2 an inch in my bust.

Exercise
----------
Still slacking in it. This was my week off from school on my online classes, so I have been lazy all around the last few days. I do move around a lot at work.

Still drink nothing but water all day. I did have a couple of poppers my Mom made. She bakes cakes as a side job and I am at times her tester. I don't test the whole cupcakes anymore, but she made poppers which are small enough to pop in your mouth comfortably. It is like the size of spoonful of rice or a piece of sushi. Actually I think it is smaller than a piece of sushi.
Any extra cakes she has she has me take them to work and the guys will eat them pretty quickly.

Things I have noticed
----------------------
I lost weight in my face, enough to the point my computer does not recognize me to log me on with the face recognition. I was also able to pull up a pair of pants that I could not get over the bottom part of my thigh before. I can't button them at all yet and they are pretty snug at the hips. I will be in them soon though.

I won't be buying anymore bananas this week because we are going out of time for my brothers graduation from the Air Force in two days. I will get back on it when I get back. I still will sort of be following the diet, but I may not have access to bananas while I am away. I think this would be a good test, since I doubt I would be eating bananas every morning for the rest of my life. I would get sick of them.

See you on Day 28.

Exercise
----------
Running around at work stretching to reach heights and bending to get lower to adjust things. That was the reason I wanted a snack after work, since I needed fuel to do my paper, well finish it.

I received my Easy Curves today. SO I tried it out and I will be reviewing that at the same time. So far, I think it works. My arms hurt still (not bad). I could care less about my bust increasing. Firming yes, increasing whatever. I read on another blog somewhere that it helps firm and tone the upper arms also. Meaning less under arm flab people. So I thought I would give it a try. Before anyone suggests push ups... I hate push ups in any form.This thing works out multiple parts in a few minutes a day, I can deal with it.

Planned on walking today, but I rather just go to bed and do it tomorrow when I get off at a reasonable time, considering we lost an hour today. Set your clocks forward an hour people, or you will all be late for work or wherever else you need to go to.
