The "Perfect" Day

Hello lovelies! Today was fabulous :) I had work for 6 hours, and a two hour class. During my 6 hours of work (in which my only task is to answer the phone and get the mail occasionally), I got a crapton of homework done, including a draft of a paper due Friday. Yay! There is also no class tomorrow because of this thing my college does called Spring Day, when there is no class and you basically play all day. There will be laser tag, free tshirts and tie die, free food (which I will not eat), and other fun things. It's the best day ever, but I will most likely spend it doing homework and working out. I do, however, plan to get a tshirt and tie die it, and perhaps play some laser tag (which will also burn calories!). Here is what I ate today:

- Breakfast: 4 medium strawberries (16)
- Lunch: None
- Dinner: None
Total calories: 16!

So far. I am also planning on drinking tonight, because there is no class tomorrow, but I think that since I haven't eaten all day, I shouldn't need to much alcohol to get pretty drunk. Maximum, I will drink 400 calories, which would still put me under 500 calories for the day. I also worked out for an hour today. I biked for 45 minutes, and did sit-ups and stretched for 15 minutes. I burned 450 calories, which is pretty good. The whole time, I was totally pushing myself too. I wanted to quit after 30 minutes, but I kept going, so I'm proud of myself. So basically, this day rocked.

I also keep forgetting to mention that I joined this site called Pretty Thin, and I'm part of a group diet and a spring challenge there. The group diet isn't anything specific, but basically it's just 12 of us supporting one another and losing weight for the summer. The spring challenge involves making four promises: a) Giving up some food (I chose chocolate), b) Giving up some drink (I chose soda), c) Trying to fix a personal flaw (I chose procrastination), and d) Punishing yourself if you mess up (I will do one sit-up and one push-up for every extra calorie of forbidden foods I eat). The group diet is working out great, and I am receiving a TON of support that is fabulous.

So anyway, tomorrow is supposed to be your "Perfect Day" for the group diet. I decided that I would get a lot of homework done, exercise for 2 hours, eat less than 300 calories, and socialize with at least one person. But I'm sort of thinking- I did almost all of these things today too! If I wasn't drinking, I would only have consumed 16 calories. I exercised, did a ton of homework, and will be socializing later. So I guess I get two perfect days! Oh yah, and I didn't get to weigh myself today, but I'm hoping that I will be back down to 183 when I weigh tomorrow. I ballooned up to 185 after the weekend. Well, that's all I have for now. You are all amazing!
