Jenny Craig Day 22 - Booty Calls to Shrink My Booty
Today's Jenny Craig Tips:
* A the-neighbors-are-starting-to-bang-on-the-walls booty call can completely reinvigorate your diet.
* Big shocker: Getting your cardio on regularly will improve your stamina in, ahem, other areas.
And now, here are the details of my 22nd day on Jenny Craig...
What I Weighed Today: 189.5 lbs. (8am)
To say that I am buoyant today would be the understatement of the year. I am positively MANIC!! Guess who worked out today!! That's right kids, it was me!! 1/2 a mile in the pool. It wasn’t easy getting back to it after so much time being sedentary for the most part. I had some leg and foot cramping and I had to stop several times to stretch and shake out the locked up muscles. But I was determined to at least do the ½ mile and I did. Exhausted doesn’t begin to describe what I was feeling, but there was an exhilaration there, too.
It takes half the amount of time you dated someone to get over them. –Sex and the City
The whole Howard thing has me in a weird state of mind and heart. Going to the gym was more about distracting myself than working out. I realize that but to be truthful I’m not going to over-analyze it or try to fix my mind-set right now. I’m in survival mode. It is complete denial of what is truly going on inside of me but I need to get some time between this incident and my facing it, so that I don’t completely come unglued. I can’t ask the question, “Why me?” right now because I may meltdown completely. I just can’t afford that right now. I have worked hard to get here and I can’t lose sight of my goal just because some guy wanted to put me back in my old mold. AAAARGH! I’m starting to talk about it!! New subject!!....
What I Ate Today:
Breakfast: Jenny Craig Blueberry Pancakes & Veggie Sausage, Non-Fat Yogurt, 2 cups Coffee w/4 tablespoons sugar-free Vanilla creamer
Snack 1: Jenny Peanut Butter Chocolate Anytime Bar
Lunch: Jenny Craig Tuna Salad Kit, Persian Cucumbers, 2 oz. String Cheese
Snack: 2 Apples
Dinner: Jenny Craig Turkey Chili, Mixed Steamed Veggies
Snack: Jenny Craig Peanut Caramel Snack Bar
Lap Swimming: 1/2 mile
Some Asian guy was hitting on me in the steam room. Me??!! With my wrinkly, cellulite-ridden thighs and flappy arms! HA! I was trippin' but laughing and flirting right back. If he likes what he sees, who am I to question admiration? I will admit that I was afraid to get up and walk out of the room in front of him, but as I sat there, longer and longer, getting closer to fainting, I finally couldn’t take it anymore and got up and left and sat on the side of the pool to cool off. Damn if the little f*cker didn’t come sit next to me and keep hitting on me!
It's so long since I've had sex, I've forgotten who ties up whom. —Joan Rivers
The flirtation didn’t go past the side of the pool because I really wasn’t attracted to him. He was a little too young and a little too……well…LITTLE for my taste. But it was quite the confidence booster and I was on a high from my swim. I literally floated out of the gym (on exhausted, wobbly legs). I went home, exfoliated, shaved, softened and called Booty Call Darryl for a tune up. The sex was awesome, as usual, and I felt like I was back on track emotionally by the end of the night.
I’ve begun to email back and forth with a few guys from Match.com just to get back in the saddle right away. I could easily just stick to booty calls, but I want to date. I want to be treated like a lady. I want to be looked at and touched with a purpose beyond the physical. Sometimes I feel like all I’m dealing with right now is the physical. The diets, the dudes, the gym….it all centers around how I look. If I can’t find some emotional fulfillment soon I worry how it will affect my efforts to improve physically.
