    So remember that guy I talked about a few blogs back?? Tonite we planned to meet. He was on his way here, was nearly at my house and like an idiot, I chickened out, got this wave of anxiety I haven't felt in years and told him I couldn't do it. WTF is wrong with me??

I don't know how that was possible when I had enough calorie-intake for the day. But I did keep getting hungry in the morning due to my intense spinning... Read more
