Feeling Fat? Face the Scale!

So I’ve been feeling fat for a couple of days, just ask my husband.  It’s gripe gripe gripe all about “I’m going to regain all my weight before the cruise” (because 35 pounds in 2 weeks is totally possible).  Well, this morning I decided to face the music, and jumped on the good ol’ scale.  I’m not sure if it was feeling sorry for me, or what the case was, but it was still reading 161.2, which is totally acceptable to me.  I want to still be under 165 for when we leave on our cruise, and that is looking pretty likely, as we leave in 2 Fridays (OMG I have 2 weeks to clean my house, prep my parents for house sitting, buy dog food, pack clothes, repack clothes…aaaaaah!)…ok feeling a little overwhelmed.

I guess I’ll need to pack a swimsuit, even if the high will be like 52, since there are a couple hot tubs on the ship…my “good” jeans (sans holes in the butt/thigh) and might have to invest in a few new shirts (hello Fruit de Loom, how I missed the).  Sometimes being a tomboy, and a cheapskate when it comes to clothes, pays off…not when I’m going on an Alaskan cruise however!  Definitely going to need some cute new stuff so my pics look gorgeous!

Guild Wars 2 and other realizations

So we got Guild wars 2 on Friday night from ArenaNet (or whoever they are called, honestly I’m about 1/3 awake yet) and started playing Saturday, stayed up all night, then again on Sunday, but went to bed at a decent hour.

So far, I’ve played maybe 5 hours of the game, or 6.  I’ll say it’s a combination of Rift and World of Warcraft, and it is a pretty well done game in general.  Fun to play, addicting, and has dynamic quests.

I’m playing an Elementalist, and it reminds me of a Shaman in WoW, except instead of having two sets of gear at this point, I have four “Stances” which change depending on what WEAPON I’m carrying.  So I have a set for: Staff , Dagger/Focus, Dagger/Dagger, Trident and I think one or two other ones, it’s kind of crazy.  The crafting and trading system feel really weird at this point, I keep catching myself hitting “B” for bag, or “Shift+B” for “All Bags”, but this game uses “I” instead, for Inventory I suppose.  “C” has been replaced with “H” for Hero (character sheet where you change out gear, add your talents etc.), and the crafting itself you have to be in one specific town to do, at least at this point (I am level 14, I feel like such a badass! LoL!

The game seems fun though, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

My maintenance weigh in this morning seemed promising, 161.8, totally maintaining my loss from before Sturgis, so I’ll take that :).  My current actions are currently:

Breakfast – Atkins Bar

Lunch – either Atkins Bar or go out, if I go out, avoid carbs.

Dinner – normal people food.

Still no regular soda, I limit how much actual bread I’m eating and am using Sugar Free options whenever I can, it seems to be working so here’s hoping this trend continues.  I know I’ll have a gain during the cruise,  I’m just really hoping it will be minimal.  Speaking of, t-minus 17 days!!!
