We are in the middle of changing internet/cable/phone company. He was here today and unable to complete the work because we need access to someone else's house. Called for another appointment, given the 18th.

Total first world problems here, but that's 9 days away! Already been without any of it for a week! I need to get work done, and I need internet for that.

So very, very sad about the events that happened here over this past weekend. A young unarmed kid was shot by a police officer...after a scuffle yes, but with his back turned and hands up....multiple times. Big rally and vigil the next day. Police respond with dogs and huge presence, it tips over into riot and the looting begins. Likely all that will be remembered is the looting (which dont get me wrong..is horrible and tragic) but the what lead up to this, the distrust between police and citizens, the anger, the feeling of helplessness that drove it to that tipping point will likely all be forgotten.

Crap. End of day today. Now I know why I haven't been loosing any weight, but holding at a steady 148 pounds. o_O

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to have to make some serious adjustments to my eating habits. I was a bit conscientious of what I was eating today and thus didn't have my "dessert" like I normally do after lunch :)o). Even then, I'm now at home and just had some leftovers for dinner and am only 170cal short of my calorie max and I'm still hungry. I know calorie guides are a guideline and nutrition is just as important as calories, but dang. Had I eaten how I normally would have today I would be WAY over calorie limit. And probably fat limit.

I have a feeling I'll be drinking a lot more water to help curb snacking desires.

Water helps for sure, but I find that changing my snacks from carb-based to protein-based has helped a LOT. That Krave jerky that Aimee mentioned is aaaamazing and can be found at Target! Also, paying attention to serving sizes was key for me.

Seems to be picking back up.....:(

Protests should continue...vigils should continue. The opportunists who use this as an excuse to loot and vandalize...they suck. May be starting to spread to other parts of the city now too but still waiting for confirmation on that as I am hoping its an isolated thing

I'm so sad about Robin Williams, especially considering the manner of death. He literally has access to all the help money can buy, but still could find his way out of that hopelessness. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
That's how I feel too. So so sad. He was one of my favorites, loved him from when I was a little kid.

I'd rather be anywhere but my house right now, but I'm too stressed and upset to go anywhere. :(
My house? :( Just saw this.

My vent: got a massive case of food poisoning last night. Got home after midnights, spent an hour in bed being nauseous and miserable, spent a while puking, cleaning myself up, repeat, and then couldn't go to sleep because of the pain. I slept in until 1 and have been miserable since.
