However my dvds were NOT returned from Texas which led me to call him. He didn't answer so I texted stating I wanted them back and he could leave them at my friends building which is closer to his house if my office was too taxing for him.
I also mentioned I was still going to Texas. He proceeded to try and make small talk with me which I was having NONE of and I stopped replying. He then texted again saying he had dropped off my dvds.
The great thing about going away and having an adventure in Italy - you forget about fuckboys like Texas.
Meanwhile, Audi kept in touch every single day and was actually quite lovely to talk to. I enjoyed his check-ins and he often kept me company when I was venturing around Italian cities aimlessly.
But this month I am taking a dating break. I'll pick things up in October after my birthday but right now my focus is on myself and the momentum I gained in Italy during the fitness retreat.
I successfully lost 5lbs and my goal by end of October is another 20. That might be a bit much but if I can lost 5lbs in 6 days, I think 20lbs in 7/8 weeks seems do-able.
Dating = drinking and that's empty calories which won't get me to this goal any faster. Being so stressed this past year the weight just sort of piled on. I think I did turn to drinking to deal with my anxiety over life and also to deal with loneliness.
Either way, Italy snapped me out of it and I am in no bullshit mode. Time to get fit, create new routines, find new challenges, and feel great about myself again like I did on my 28th birthday.
And luckily Audi is still in the picture so I have him to keep my phone buzzing while I work on me, myself, and I.
So for dating adventures, check back in October.
However between now and then - I'm sure some moron from the past will pop-up and I'll have updates. ;)
