This month has been a real bitch. Not too many things have been going my way (yeah, I'm aware that "that's life", but it doesn't mean I have to like it). Here's a few (yes, there are plenty more I'm NOT including).
Many of you may remember in December I had facial/oral surgery & was on a soft food diet, soon to be replaced w/a diet high in calories & carbs (I lost a lot of weight while recovering). Well....the aftermath has arrived! Note to self: you CANNOT survive on chocolate, noodles & Pepsi & expect to continue to weigh 111lbs, nor can you get lazy, lay around watching Millionaire & The View & just stop Pilates all together & expect to stay bikini-ready!
I can proudly say I'm back on track, exercising daily & only had 1 Pepsi yesterday!! Yay, go me! (You don't know how huge that is, only drinking 1 Pepsi....The only fair comparison would be like an alcoholic who starts drinking before noon, drinks all day & even goes to bed w/one on the nightstand....that's a pretty accurate pic of my relationship w/Pepsi).
So, I'm trying to eat right, exercise daily & make smart choices when it comes to my non-stop snacking after 9pm every night. I'm confident this extra weight will just evaporate w/a little hard work.
.....just solved 1 problem.....hopefully......
That being said, I'm officially OVER winter (ok, ok, so technically mid 70's to low 80's isn't much of a" winter", but hey, it's winter to me)! I want to swim & stroll along the beach & bitch constantly about how I wish it was winter again. I long to be tan again instead of albino.
My skin. When did it decide to finally go through puberty & just break out like crazy?!? I'm 35! Why is this happeni....oh, God....could this be tied in w/my bouts of crying for no reason (or a really sentimental commercial), the hot flashes I get throughout the day, the sweat I'm drenched in 1 minute, followed by cold chills the next.....is it, dare I even say it....MENOPAUSE?!?! Lord help everyone close to me if it is! But seriously, my skin is worse than it ever was when I was a teen! I'm so ugly right now......& fat.
This next one is DRAINING ME! Ben's extra-curricular schedule. He is 7 & his dance card is way more filled than mine (ok, so I don't even have a dance card). On Monday & Tuesday he, I mean WE have baseball until 7:30pm, Wednesday it's Cub Scouts from 6-7pm, there's trips to the library & park, entertaining him every second of every day, having to feed him, clothe him, let him live in my house, etc....its exhausting! (Yes, I am very aware that is what having kids is all about, but everyone is entitled to bitch about it from time to time & yes the last part was 100% joke).
I am basically saying, hurry up March, I'm waiting!!! That's all.
Peace, Love & Light,
