Have any of you been watching this? If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically The Bachelor for “average” to overweight people. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Maybe they had good intentions (although that’s doubtful), but the whole show just kind of makes me sick. A lot of these women are emotionally unstable, and have very low self-confidence. They say over and over that this is their “last chance” to find a guy who likes them because they’re overweight. It just makes me sad to see these women crying (oh, there’s so much crying!) about how this is the first time in their life they’ve ever felt beautiful, or saying that their personality is “all they have.” It just makes me want to kick through the TV screen and sit them down and tell them they’ve got so much more going for them than they even realize. Also, what’s so special about this guy? He likes plus-size women? He’s not the only man in the world who likes plus-size women (I’ll have to tell y’all that story another time, because this is already really long). I don’t like his personality one bit, and I feel like he takes advantage of the fact that these women have such low self-confidence.
Moving on… here’s a recap of yesterday.
I had class early, and took a granola bar to eat during it, but then class ended early. Skip over this if you don’t want to hear something sad, but my professor ran over her dog yesterday morning, so she obviously couldn’t come to class. I can’t imagine how hard that must be for her.
After that, I had a few things to do for Spanish before class. Around 1, I decided to eat up the last of the TJ’s rice pilaf and black beans. I added a LC cheese wedge on top.
Then I went to my Spanish class. I’m not sure if I’m going to like this class or not. I was just happy it didn’t rain on me on my way back today!
Then I got ready to go home. I tried to get a few pictures for me, but I didn’t realize how dark they would turn out :(
These pom-poms didn’t quite turn out as cute as the picture, but I still like them (and they look better from below, like a mobile—regression to my childhood, anyone?).
I made these wall fans last year, and I just love them. I got the idea from Morgan, who found them on my favorite blogger’s website. I think I will have to dedicate a post to her one day. Really, she’s amazing.
I just love how they can cheer up any room.
They’re especially helpful when you’re not allowed to paint a room, or when you’re trying to cover up some ugly marks on the wall.
I got home around dinner time, but wasn’t planning on eating dinner since we were going to Bunco soon. However, I was really hungry, so I decided to have a Strawberry Chobani with some granola.
I didn’t get any pictures from Bunco, but I’ll tell you a little about it. I started out with a cup of 2/3 Sprite and 1/3 raspberry lemonade. After that, I stuck to water, since the only diet drink there was Coke Zero (I’m doing Crest White strips, so I’m not supposed to have dark drinks for a while).
I also had a few too many handfuls of trail mix, a few too many pieces of crusty bread, and a 2-bite brownie that was beyond good. There were so many good-looking things I couldn’t have, like pigs n blankets (we took the “no pudge” version, and someone else brought regular ones), Italian sausage, and a couple dips that had meat in them (that I almost ate, because my I had my mom test taste one and she said they didn’t have meat, when they in deed did).
Overall, I’m very proud of myself last night. That meat was calling to me, but I passed it up in the spirit of Vegetarian Week. I’ll go over my reflections of the week in more depth tonight or tomorrow, but let’s just say I could never be Vegetarian by choice for more than a week.
