Diet Diary

Dear Diary,

Today is day 10 of my HCG/800 calories a day diet. On this diet you’re supposed to lose a pound a day. So I should be 10 pounds down today and swinging from the rafters with happiness. Unfortunately I am only down 6.5 pounds. The last time I lost a pound was when I weighed myself Tuesday morning. It’s frustrating when you feel like you’re barely eating anything and you aren’t dropping the weight every day.

BUT, though I’m frustrated by it, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that I’ve almost lost 7 pounds!!! I mean…that’s a pretty big deal. I’ll take it! I can already feel my pants getting loose and my tummy getting flatter. So it is inspiring.

I really don’t want to gain those 6.5 pounds back so I’m excited to continue to eat only healthy foods and also work out more. I’m determined! Here I go! Update soon 🙂


Mackelmore Responds To Supreme Court Overturning DOMA And Prop 8

“Today is a historic day for civil rights in America. By declaring DOMA unconstitutional, the Supreme Court has stated that the U.S. Government can no longer deny federal benefits to same sex couples. This means that people like my uncles, who have been in a committed relationship for over 20 years, will now receive the same rights that my parents have. Personally, I feel reconnected to my American identity, and am proud of the progress we have made in recent years. Today gives promise to the hope that we can and will change when our nation isn’t fair and just. It’s a victory not only for the LGBTT community and those rejoicing with friends, family and loved ones, but also a victory for all who devote their lives to fight for what is constitutionally and ethically right. 

While today’s ruling was monumental and imperative, we have a long way to go. There are still 37 states in our country that must shift legislation on same sex marriage before equality for same-sex couples is reached. But the real work lies in deconstructing the core of where the fear around same-sex couples comes from. Homophobia and intolerance continue to play a strong role in many households, schools, media and religious institutions in our country. Without directly addressing the real issues and where they stem from, America’s momentum towards justice will be stagnant and insincere.

This ruling gives us all an opportunity to address equality for same-sex couples in our homes, our schools and our social circles. We must continue to have dialogue and discussions around this issue, and push ourselves past the point of what’s comfortable and socially accepted. We, especially those of us whose rights are secure, are challenged to not sit passively in this crucial moment of cultural progress. True change lives in the minds and hearts of the people that make up our country, and must be cultivated, not mandated. We all have a part to play.”



That Awkward Moment….

a cute guy facebook friend requests you and right after you click “accept” you have to hurry and block him from your cat photo album. hahahah FML

As some of you may or may not know, I am on the free dating app called Tinder.

I’ve been on one date from this app and I am talking to another boy from it still who lives in San Diego. It’s been over a month now, we’ve never met, but we’re still in contact. I swear we’ll meet one day…

But this story is not about date #1 or San Diego boy. This blog is about some fool named Nicolas. We began chatting on Tinder two days ago and yesterday afternoon he asked me if I’d be interested in going wine tasting with him next week. I agreed and we had a date planned for next Tuesday.

Side note- as some of you also may know, I have been on this hard core diet for the past week in a half. No drinking AT ALL. But luckily the date was set for next week and next week is when I planned on going back to real life.

Anywhoo- last night I got this text from him- (see pic above)

I didn’t want to tell the guy that I’m doing this crazy 2 week diet and can’t see him until next week, so I went with the 3 day cleanse. I mean, it’s LA. EVERYONE is doing 3 day cleanses these days. Well apparently my 3-day cleanse story freaked him the f*ck out because he never wrote me back! It’s been like 14 hours. Sooooo that’s fun. hahaha

Who knew a 3 day cleanse could be so offensive? I dont know why I just didn’t tell him I had plans Thursday night like a normal person. Gah!

UPDATE** This guy actually did end up texting me later this day. He told me he didn’t think I was weird for doing a cleanse and apologized for the delayed response. We actually went on a date last night. And though it was a good date…he’s honestly not my type. And I have no interest in following up for a second date.


Dont you want to be there?



Adorable Kitten & Dog Are Best Friends

So cute.

You may think it’s not worth clicking and watching…but trust me..it is.



Kim and Kanye’s baby has been named, officially, North West. They will call her Nori for short, even though (A) it’s twice as many syllables as her actual name and (B) sorry, but no one is ever going to get past the fact that her name is North West.

Even though I have a feeling that Baby North is going to be just fine, swimming around Scrooge McDuck-style in her stacks of new money, it’s hard not to feel sorry for someone whose parents based such a big decision on “Hey, you know what would be funny?”

Call me if you want the number of my attorney. Or my shrink.
