Christmas Cheer...

I don't like shopping. I lack the genetic make up of normal girls who can spend hours looking at things and touching them, and either deciding I can't live without them, or walking away. I don't mind going once in a while, but 99% of the time I like to go for what I need, and leave.

So, Christmas is not my forte. Mostly because I don't just go out and buy myself things whenever I feel like it. So to go out and spend money on other people, makes me a little bit jealous. There, now you all know that when you get a gift from me, I'm jealous of it. Like when you buy your sister diamond earrings that happen to be bigger than yours you have to trade yours up because why would your sister have bigger earrings than you? You DO work for a jeweler!

Maybe that makes me selfish, but I don't care.

For the first time, like...ever I waited until today to do any shopping. One week before Christmas.

I have to go to Wal Mart tonight.

Please feel bad for me.

In other news, I broke out my meal tracker from when I was in boot camp. I forgot what type of food I ate during that time..Here is an example of a typical day:

Breakfast: Turkey bacon, egg beater, 1 slice of wheat toast
Lunch: chicken breast and green peppers
Dinner: Healthy choice veggie soup (60 calories) turkey burger no bun
Snack: orange, carrots, celery
Water: 80 oz

I felt great while attending boot camp and I dropped a lot of sizes. But the truth of the matter is I was always starving.

Are skinny people just always hungry? Do you just have to come to that conclusion? Because I've heard many a skinny celebrity admit that.

Oy. I hate shopping. I like to go alone without distractions.

Also? Have fun at your pre-wedding festivities this weekend. i know of someone who was dating for only 10 months and got engaged recently as well. Same person? It's a small world so it probably is. Hm.

I am in and out! Wow..either people are getting hitched sooner than usual, or it just may be the same couple! How funny would that be?

That would be so weird! I'm SO curious now... I bet it is. Akron is small, right?

I'm not a fan of shopping unless I'm in the mood and need something.
