Meet The Beast!!!

Holy OMG!

Look what came to my house apartment yesterday!

I have lovingly nicknamed it The Beast for now... and yes it is still in the box... haha... umm did I mention that we live on the 3rd floor?!?! The box said that the equipment weighs 191lbs but the box was 213lbs in total!... We used a industrial dolly that my apartment manager had (like for getting fridges up to the 3rd floor etc.) and even with the both of us it was still tough! Boyfriend ripped one of his toes up pretty bad and we were both exhausted!... I had to wake him up early because it arrived at 3pm (boyfriend sleeps from 9am to 4pm)... so I ran to our favorite restaurant :

And got him his favorite dinner.... I also bought him some ridiculously expensive energy drinks called RedLine ... they're like $3.69 at our local gas station, but they're also impossible to find anywhere else... Boyfriend thinks they're marketed as a weight loss drink, like Celsius or whatever that drink is... he just likes that they have an INSANE amount of caffeine in them...

I know, I know... not healthy... but his job has been wearing him VERY thin and I am scared that he will fall asleep at the wheel or do something equally dangerous because he is so tired... there just aren't enough hours in the day for him!! It makes me sad and frustrated... and sometimes i take it out on him {I'm Sorry!!} ... like yesterday morning... I turned into crazy b.tch ... so I always try to apologize when that happens and get him something to let him know I care... Like those dumb expensive drinks!

Anyways... as far as my promises go here is an update:

1. I HAVE lost weight this week! WaHoo! No idea where I will be by Sunday, but I was 174.4lbs when I woke up this morning... which makes me feel like all my hard work is finally paying off! I am trying realllly hard to prove I deserved that treadmill! A Lot of people had faith in me and I just want to show everyone that it wasnt misplaced!

2. I have been to the gym 3 times this week - 30mins+ each time... today @ lunch should make 4!! YAY!!

3. No Soda so far!!! Though I have seriously wanted to cave this week! ... I am taking time to enjoy water again... which is a nice change for me... I drink like 10 - 1/2 liter bottles every day (AT LEAST) and I am still getting dehydrated pee... sorry, TMI I know but I am frustrated! Like seriously body! How much water do you need?!!?

4. I am sticking to my diet like white on rice... haha I never understood that phrase! Well, I had a very vivid dream that I ate these ice cream treats (similar to frozen snickers ice cream noveltys - except they were half filled with champagne -GO FIGURE!!!)... I woke up really sad that I cheated on my diet... but then remembered it was litterally a DREAM... hahahah!

Anyways! I am gearing up for the weekend... That was a big part of my promises; to maintain my lifestyle over the weekend... that is always my hardest obstical to overcome...
