A First, A Bandiversary A NSV, And a Wonderful Weekend Ahead

It's been a rough week, bloggers. I really wanted to post this yesterday, but I ran out of time between school work and work work. But, better late than never, I suppose.

I'll start off with my "first". It's not something awesome, either. It's actually kind of gross. You can skip it if you'd like. You see, on Tuesday, I was sitting in the library at school working on an online exam. I had a piece of chicken ready to go for my lunch, but there were people all around. I suppose I haven't gotten it into my mind that people aren't going to judge me for eating in public...after all, everyone has to eat, right? Yeah, I should have thought about that. By the time the area cleared out, it was 3:15. My class starts at 3:30. So, I figure, ok, I only have the chicken, nothing else, so I'll just eat it real fast and be on my merry way to class. I'll be the first to admit that I was a huge freaking IDIOT. I ate my 3 oz chicken breast in 4 minutes. As soon as I finished, I knew that that was quite possibly the worst decision I'd ever made. I walked over to the building for my next class, in pain the whole way. "Take slow breaths" I told myself "you'll be ok". It was the worst feeling ever. So, I go upstairs and sit down at my desk. My mouth begins to fill with saliva. I can't swallow--there's nowhere for it to go. Luckily, my dad bought me a metal water bottle for Christmas, so I faked taking a drink and I spit into that. Shortly after, my mouth was full of saliva again. This spitting and filling went on until 4:00 when finally, the saliva thinned out and I got that feeling of "ok, it's ready to come back up" finally. So, I get up in the middle of class, practically run to the bathroom and experience my very first PB. Now, I can't really understand why they'd give it such a name as "productive burp". There's nothing burp-like about it, although I can say it was quite productive as I felt so much better afterwards. Never trying to eat anything that fast ever again. I'm glad I now know the awfulness that is the PB and I'll do everything in my power to avoid it.

Moving along, it turns out that I've missed my 6 month bandiversary. It was on the 4th. Oopsies. I'm a little sad about it, but oh well. I've got lots more to focus on. Like my super awesome NSV for example. I'm a rather flexible individual, for a fat person. Up until I got up to about 230, I had been able to touch my nose with my toe. Well folks, I'm able to do it again. I tried just a few days ago and was pleased that it worked out. Something of an odd NSV, but, I'll take it.

And finally, I'm getting pretty excited. Ben and I are looking forward to our 5 year anniversary on the 14th. Because it's a Tuesday, he'll be working and I'll be schooling and working, so we're going to celebrate tomorrow. He's got this big elaborate date planned and it's a surprise, so I'm especially excited about that. He hardly ever surprises me and he's done a very good job of keeping everything a secret. In addition to the date, he got me a Wii Fit, the balance board, and he's going to get me the actual game console today, I think. Super pumped to give it a shot. Also, our local video rental store has a TON of games for it, like Zumba and some other dance one that I'm going to try. I already gave him his gift because I'm just terrible at waiting. My friend is an art major and she does really nice work. I had her paint this picture for him.

He really likes woodsy things-he actually introduced me to the concept of camping. And we both really enjoy autumn, so I wanted those kinds of colors. I think she did a beautiful job on it. And one time, I was looking at rustic wedding invitations that had a path on them and they said "Two lives, One path" and I loved that, so that's on the back along with the date. I'm going to try to take a bunch of pictures tomorrow. He has dinner planned out and I'm actually a bit nervous about that part because I don't know where we're going or even what type of food we'll be eating...we'll see how that goes. Hmm. I think this post is long enough, so I'm going to go do something scholarly. Thanks so much to everyone who commented on yesterday's post. I love that I have this awesome community to celebrate my victories with. You guys rock.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

No one ever forgets their first PB. Congrats on the toe touching nose.

I am always especially careful about eating when I am not at home. The thought of having to throw up in a public toilet grosses me out...especially the ones at my school.

PB- the first is the worst because you are like is this really "it?" The most interesting thing I've noticed with the weightloss is i'm not as worried about people seeing what I eat! I don't feel like the fat girl all of the time ordering a salad so everyone will think I'm trying to lose weight.
Love your posts! Keep it up!

I LOVE surprises! I hope you have fun. Contests on the toe touching thing. I might try that just to see if I can. LOL

Not contest but Congratulations. I am not nor will I ever challenge someone to a contest like that. I would lose. I hate auto correct sometimes.
