the concert was great. the greatness of being able to go see a group like the goo goo dolls without having to leave the state sort of got burried by the holiday. our backs did make it on the local news because frozen ass people waiting for a concert was the most exciting thing to put on the 6 o'clock news. atleast we weren't upstaged by gross murders, there are some things to love about bangor.
the holiday went well. there was a lot of eating...but strangely matt and i spent much of the weekend hungry and searching out food in my dad's house. it seemed like all of his food was sweet based: coffee cakes, cookies, quick breads. i'm not doing anything in particular, but i can't survive on sugar and i don't want to. that's the one real difference in my life, i'm getting very sugar averse. so we ended up eating out more than was strictly necessary to have normal food and i do show a wee gain today.
my sister in particular didn't seem convinced about my "nothing" doing, and i didn't have time to elaborate. it's not that i'm doing nothing and eating from dusk till dawn. i'm exercising as much as i can and i'm eating what i want. i don't know how to describe it but i'm just in this place where i'm ok with things. the angry fat girls had a similar post up today. sortof karma-esque, feeling good makes good things happen. that's where i am. things are just sort of falling into place.
i can probably link my little 2 pound gain to 1. not getting a lot of exercise, 2. having thanksgiving followed up by two meals of pizza (long story) and 3. eating three ice cream sandwiches yesterday. even though i'm living rule free, three ice cream sandwiches in one day was probably avoidable. but...i'm over it. i got a lot done yesterday between my ice cream breaks and it's not worth worrying about. being unburdened by guilt is my favorite thing to be thankful for this holiday season.
