Yup! It’s getting groovy here again.
While work is still work, and life is well.. still LIFE! I am finding my groove again in the last week. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but considering I basically took those two months off, I’ll take it!
I’ve been walking and moving more, and I can feel it. I’m feeling better about myself over all in the last couple of days, which is a good thing. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself. ( See!! I told you I’d find a way to work through it!)
I even got back to editing The Five Angels and have moved forward and made much progress with it in the last few days. I love my Nalrin world. It in some ways is my “happy place”. There is something about escaping into a world or character that you have completely created. You know its flaws, its secrets, its essence. Yet, it knows you too, it finds ways to fill those voids in your heart and mind that stimulate creativity and it makes me happy.
Yes, I know that after reading that your probably wondering if I’m in Colorado with it’s new legal herb, and partaking in its new legality. No. I’m not.
Anyways, I do have to tell you the following story .
Last week since I was feeling so stupidly sorry for myself, I bought 2 of the little containers of Ben and Jerry’s Health Bar Ice Cream.
Now, my family can attest that eating a container of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream in one sitting… PFFFFF NO PROBLEM!!!
What do you mean that only 1/2 cup is 1 serving… You mean to tell me that the whole container isn’t a serving?! PFFF WHATEVER! LIES I TELLS YA! LIES!!!!!
Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten that my body doesn’t like dairy or the lactose that comes with it… but again I say… PFFFF WHATEVER!
So… Anyways I bought two of them. I grabbed one last week and sat down with the container and ate out of it, of which the husband unit came by and snagged half the container ( Yes, I bitched, moaned and complained, but he tried to tell me that he was just trying to keep me from eating the whole container… silly man! ).
Two nights ago I sat down with the second container and ate some of it, and put it back. Only about 1/8 of the container consumed!!! I claim VICTORY!!!! See!!! Portion control!
Well last night, I sat down with the container again, perfectly content with eating the rest of it, and ended up only eating bout 1/3 of what was there!
I stopped when the last bite didn’t taste as good as the first!!! I’m actually quite proud of myself in this regard!
I also have been keeping my food in the 1,000-1200 calorie range for the most part, and that is once again a success. Now, to just get the balance of the right foods in that calorie intake. No I’m not eating a bunch of fast food, it just seems to be a little heavy on the carbs, which takes up a lot of calories, and not always the most long lasting of foods.
The moral of todays story, I am slowly getting back on track, and it feels GOOD!
So Yes. Today, I am Tooting my own HORN and here is to another 70 pounds being banished from my person forever in the year to come!
Now… if I can just get the eye fatigue to lighten up, all will be right in the world!
