I’m babysitting the happiest baby ever. Why aren’t all babies like this?

My youngest brother wants to lose weight. He’s been working out the last couple months 6 days a week but he’s still been eating the same as always. Today my dad talked with him about how exercise is only one part of the equation and that he needs to eat differently if he really wants to lose weight. So he is going to start cutting out junk food and he’ll be able to have one “junk day” (that’s what my dad called it) a week. My dad then says he asked my mom for some healthy food options that my brother already likes and she mentioned bacon. My dad rolled his eyes and said, “if anything, maybe turkey bacon.” Ugh. No. Bacon is fine to eat. Anyway, I told my dad that I’ll try and get my brother to try some broccoli. First, I’ll give him a piece that’s just steamed with some salt and then I’d give him a piece that’s steamed with a little bit of cheese. My dad replies with “well go easy on the cheese.” Yeah, cheese is fine too. It’s not like I’m going to put a pound of cheese on the broccoli. But me and my dad both eat cheese as a snack so he knows it isn’t bad for you. His comments just kind of made me cringe. I don’t want my brother growing up to think fat is bad/evil/the enemy, because it’s not.

I think I’m gonna try and finish The Fault in Our Stars since it’s on my Nook and it’s just been sitting there half read for a long time.

Intake today. I worked out my BMR and it’s about 1,680 calories (to lose weight, to maintain weight it’s about 2,180) for a moderately active (exercising 3 - 5 days a week) lifestyle. Gonna aim for 1,500 - 1,600 calories a day. I think that’s pretty doable.

I want my middle part back so badly it’s not even funny.

I also bought two pairs of jeggings at the mall. They fit very well and are really comfortable. A+

I went to the mall on Friday to look for bras. I tried on a push up one just for fun and it was interesting. If the cups had actually laid flat against my chest I would’ve considered buying it to wear once in a blue moon. But it definitely extended too far out and just didn’t fit correctly. I then tried on a bra that was labeled “lightly lined” so it didn’t have excess padding or push up qualities. It has just a thin layer of material (but more material than a bralette) and it’s smooth so it would work under almost any clothing. It actually fit really well and I had a gift card so I bought 2 bras in that style - black and nude. This is the type of bra I was looking for. Bralettes are great and all but they look kind of bleh under certain articles of clothing and I don’t want to look frumpy. Even though this bra gives the impression that my boobs are slightly bigger than they actually are, it’s what I need.

I’ve been watching YouTube videos of a certain family and I’m watching one where they had to put their dog to sleep and I am actually sobbing.

Why be a mean person when you can be a nice person?

If I don’t get my period tomorrow or the next day, I’m going to be mad. Because if I get it any later the timing will be all wrong and I’ll end up with my next period during our Disneyland trip. I DO NOT want that to happen. I keep envisioning “August 21st” in my head so hopefully my body will cooperate and start being stupid that day instead of the week after.

My last name is going to be my last name for the rest of my life.

Definitely not feeling getting ready today. Why do I have to put on makeup and straighten my hair and shave? And why does it take so long? Why does it only take like 5 minutes for guys to get ready? Ugh.
