Birthdays, periods, and stress...oh my!

So this week typically sucks. I have to deal with turning yet another year older. I have to deal with my dad and brother for my moms birthday memorial. And compounding it this week was aunt flow.

Realizing aunt flow was on the horizon, I skipped my last two bc pills last week in hopes to get her to start early. It worked and as of today, she is out of the house.

Last week my dad told me that my brother had to work this weekend and couldn't do the memorial. That relieved so much stress!

However, this week I have been tight tight tight. My band is so restrictive right now that I'm really relying on shakes to get through. Hopefully, I'll loosen up tomorrow... But I'm going to get out of dinner with my dad BC I don't know for a fact if I will be loose enough to eat.. Which would lead to alot of questions since he doesn't know about my band. He sounded so disappointed when I told him tonight that we were going to skip dinner tomorrow... But the less time I spend with his wife the better.

Today is my birthday, and as a gift to myself, I bought two pairs of running shoes for the gym (Adidas outlet buy one get one half off!). I spent almost 130 bucks but it's an investment in me. I got higher end running shoes... Both pairs were originally $120 and $100 respectively. But I know that baseball season is ending in about 7 weeks and I'm going to be going to the gym more. And I need good shoes. Right?

Small victory...I weighed yesterday morning since I took the day off today. I was at a new low of 334.4. I dropped 7.8 lbs from last Friday. That just shows I was super bloated...I felt it, too. I had gained after my last lowest weight weigh in.

Anyways, happy birthday to me. Only 6lbs from making my first 100 lb loss!
