I went to the gym today during my lunch break and did 2 miles on the stationary bike, and 3 sets of weights (5 machines, 2 leg ones and 3 arm ones).

I did some introspective thinking about how much I would really like to pursue music this weekend. The thing that has always held me back is myself and I think if I can work my way down to a size 14 I'd feel a lot more confident - I'm an 18/20 now, so I think that's a reasonable goal. If I decide to set another one when I get there so be it but that's my goal right now. To hell with numbers on the scale.

This week, I'm doing the no carb thing. I found that when I did no carb diets before it's not a permanent solution but it seems to reset my hunger/full feelings so that's my goal as lately while trying to eat on a budget almost every meal had been mostly bread, rice, or pasta based and I was starving all the time. After this week, I will begin reintegrating healthier carbs (whole grains & brown rice instead of white stuff)at a reduced portion size and allow myself one cheat day a week where I can go get sushi/curry or whatever else I don't let myself get regularly.

Also, it's Greg's 26th Birthday today so I'll probably grab a carb-less salad somewhere later on so we can have some birthday festivities!

Carb-less salad? Don't vegetables have carbohydrates?

I'm avoiding bread/pasta/rice type simple carbs and the starchy vegetables (potatoes, corn). I'm not so much concerned with a super basic steak over a bed of romaine.
