joanna 's Thoughts:

Okay, so I went on an unexpected 3 month long hiatus. There’s just something about Ithaca that causes me to dress like a bum most of the time. I have literally been living in basketball shorts and a sports bra for the past month because I went to the gym religiously after class. Especially during Finals Week since all my clothes were packed away.

So now I’m home in Brooklyn and I’ve been going to Soho everyday. Like everyday. Now that I’m back in NYC, I actually have the willpower to dress better but my only setback is my rapid weight gain. 4 lbs in 4 days. The photo here is before a day of binge eating. I must stop. It sucks even more that I don’t know how many calories are in the foods I’m stuffing myself with.

I was in Koreatown today and had the need for some pastries. So I walked out with 2 different types of buns with red bean filling. YUM. Then tonight I had oily Chinese food for a belated Mother’s Day dinner. Yikes. If that wasnt enough for one day, when I got home I had cake and an egg custard tart. Either kill me or sign me up for The Biggest Loser.

I’m desperate to join my local gym but I’m flying out to Chicago on Tuesday for a week so I have to wait until I come back. Le sigh.

Today was a pretty decent day and I’ve been wearing this purple dress a lot lately. Mainly due to the fact that it’s very forgiving after large meals. Which makes my heart break because my thighs are getting fatter by the minute and I’m so disappointed at myself. All that time spent on the elliptical literally got destroyed by 4 days at home. Also I dyed my hair for the first time yesterday. For the most part, I’m satisfied but I also want a lighter shade. God, why am I never satisfied?

Okay, time to sleep because I’m heading to Soho once again tomorrow. God, it’s like my second home.
