I’ve been completely knackered today. Did my laundry, vacuumed, sorted a few things but nothing major. It’s like I’m walking through a daze and I have no energy for anything. Still… I sleep at least 8 hours a night so I don’t understand why.

FML…

Today has been really difficult. Partly because I feel bad from yesterday’s cheat day slash binge. I ate waaay too much but my brain short circuited and I just about bought every single thing I could find in the store and then I ate most of it. While I was eating I almost felt high – a bit wasted and soo soo happy at the same time. Today… not so happy. I’ve been hungry all day, although not the same acute hunger as the day before the cheat day but just this constant “I want to eat” hunger. Really annoying. So I’ve had three meals and a propud which still turned out alright calorie wise but I feel like I’ve eaten all day. Aaaand, I had the worst sleep in a while – probably because of all the sugar I had, but I am in a daze today because of it.

I also coloured my hair today which I’m quite happy about. Now it’s a soft blue rather than a blueish gray.

Then I cleaned up the kitchen which has been unusable because of all of grandma’s unwashed dishes that needed to be hand washed and I’ve just been too lazy and slow in doing so. Now they’re all clean, been placed in the cupboads and it looks quite nice. I’ve also ordered a new floor lamp which I completely adore. Quite expensive for just a lamp but I like it soo much!

The lamp I’ve ordered.

I’ve looked at a few other things I want to buy as well. I really want a new TV because mine is old (still fully functioning, though), a bit too small for the distance from the couch and just too outdated in terms of design. I want a new TV table because the one I have is just not fitting in design wise, shelves for essentially all rooms but especially for the living room and then a chest of drawers for the hallway which is completely empty save for all the trash… and the big couch that they still have not picked up. We’ll see about those things…

Today has been a lot harder. I’ve been hungry aaaaaall day and it’s really annoying. I’ve tried to distract myself with other things – mostly cleaning and moving furniture around – and I’ve mostly been successful but any time I’m not focused on something it’s there. Just… there… I think it’s because my cheat day is coming up tomorrow and I keep thinking of all the things I’m going to eat and when I’ll go to the store and how good it will taste and just… food. Super annoying. I think I did really well anyway but it’s been a struggle.

On the other hand, I’ve finished painting the tables, I’ve unpacked most of the boxes with kitchen stuff and the dishwasher is now going strong.  I still have a little bit more but there is really nothing I can do until the washer is done so I have to leave it. It’s a bit of a mess in the kitchen right now but I will sort it out soon enough. I also sorted the cords and wires behind the TV so that there is no longer a big nest under the TV unit which is such a relief! It looked like crap before and now it’s all hidden. I still have a few more cords to fix in the rest of the room but I don’t have the energy right now. I’ve also vacuumed and done little things like that.

I paid my bills today and as I logged into my bank account I saw that my boss has wired more money than I usually get into my account and I couldn’t figure out why but once I investigated a bit I saw that it is compensation for the extra time that we work throughout the year. So a normal job is 40 hours a week but I work 45 but I still only get paid for the 40 hours. But then once summer comes they calculate the number of hours you did throughout the whole year and pay you that amount – which is great! So I now have a few extra bucks to spend on my home!! Yeey!

I am no longer hungry. I don’t know how it happened or why it happened but I am no longer hungry. I ate a snackpot for lunch at around one pm just because I figured it would be good to start up the system, not because I was hungry. Then I had a propud for a snack just because I like them and I try to have something I really like each day and not because I was hungry. Then I got caught up in what I was doing and “missed” dinner until eight pm when I realized I hadn’t eaten and so I had another snackpot because I figured a big meal after eight o’clock is probably not a great thing. Still not feeling hungry, though.

This is so strange… I was so hungry at the beginning of this and now I actually forget to eat?! How does that happen?

A very uneventful day today. Have spent it painting the second half of the first table and the first halves of the second tables. It takes soooo long because of how detailed they are but it is so worth it.

Soo… I lost half a kilo last week… I guess it’s better than nothing but it doesn’t feel like enough… I was expecting more considering how little I have been eating but I guess I am too inactive. I also haven’t gone to the bathroom to do nr2, you know, in a while so maybe that has played a part? I donno…

My mom and her boyfriend came today and took my biiiiiig leather couch to their place. I have ordered a new couch which will arrive this week or next and she really liked my old one so I gave it to her. I loved that couch but it is too big for my apartment. It doesn’t fit against the wall opposite the TV so I’ve had to sit with my head turned for a looong time and it is giving me neck pains so I had to get a smaller one. I really want it to come soon! Right now I am sitting in my armchair which is the only thing to sit on in the living room. 🙂

When she came over she brought with her a few boxes of grandma’s stuff. She passed away right after Christmas and a while ago we cleaned out her house to sell it and I decided to keep a few of her things. There are a set of three tables that I love, a tea set which I don’t know when to use but it’s really pretty, a big set of plates with really nice motifs on them and some other bits and bobs. Not too much though since I’m not all that sentimental but the tables and the plates are very dear to me since they scream “grandma” in my head.

The tables are a bit old and are of a brown-red wood which won’t fit into my design scheme so I went into town and got some paint and have been repainting the first table all evening. I’ll post the finished result once it’s done.

My brain is completely exhausted! Haha! I’ve been putting together instructional documents and videos all day with screenshots and so on and it takes a lot out of your brain to do that. The reason is because I’ve been given a new role at work for next year which is to make sure that all of my colleagues and students know how to use all of the online technology that we use and I figured that a good way of doing that is to create these instructions. They are easy to follow and are the same each year so they can be reused over and over.

Anyway, enough with the boring stuff. Haven’t done all that much today other than working. Did my laundry (again), threw away some trash, sat on the balcony for a while but it was well hot so I gave up on that after maybe an hour…

This is the last day of the second week. Tomorrow morning is my weigh in and we’ll see how I did.

Had a terrible sleep and I don’t know why. My new bed is really comfortable, the room was cool and I was super tired but for some reason I just couldn’t fall asleep and once I did I woke up a hundred times. I think it was more the head rather than anything else.

Also woke up feeling a bit bloated and swollen after yesterday’s binge. Not terribly; I was expecting more, but enough to be noticeable. I am surprised, though, that I haven’t been more hungry or wanting for unhealthy foods. Whenever I have binged in the past it has been very difficult to get back on track because of the hunger and need for sugar but it hasn’t really been that bad… I haven’t eaten all that much today anyway, mostly because I’m not hungry. Or rather, I am hungry; my stomach is a bit achy and empty but it’s not urgent hunger where you feel that you HAVE to eat right now.

Went into town and got my beddings and they are awesome! Haven’t used them yet since I have to wash them and I have a time scheduled for tomorrow evening but I am so looking forward to it! I am sure they will look absolutely smashing once they’re on the duvet and pillows. I am considering which colours to use in the bedroom now though. The bed itself is a medium gray and the beddings are white so I am in-between yellow, a soft pink or blue. I have yellow drapes now and I think it looks good with a bit of colour but I have a bit of yellow in my living room so it feels a bit match-y match-y. I have dark blue drapes in storage from my last apartment and I might try putting those up just to see if it looks good or not. We’ll see…
