OK, so I would do a Dance Party Friday vlog, BUT how can I video myself dancing using my phone and no holder for it? Need to find charger for regular video camera and still would need a tripod. My son is asleep and my husband at work til 2 am. I don't want to Dance Party at 2:30 AM because that gets my energy UP when I need to be lowering it. But I assure you, I have just started doing a DPF on my own even if you can't see it! I got up and danced and sang along to "Edge of Glory" by Lady GaGa. I was going to dance to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" but it was the Glee verson - the very slow ballad one that Finn sang in a recent episode. Not DP material, but I wanted to hear it, so came here to blog.
I WAS really down.. really down down down.. PMS mostly, but lonely, too, just about 15 minutes ago.
AND we had lost the tickets to see the Wizard of Oz tomorrow. My mom sent me these tickets. It's a community production and several of our friends are in it, including some child friends who are munchkins. And Nicholas and I were going to go. But the tickets disappeared from yesterday to today! I had ALMOST given up hope about it.. but I gave intent to find them that I WOULD find them.. and although I'd thoroughly searched my desk - and the coffee table and the kitchen table and letter holders and the bedroom - I looked again on my desk and this time I put my hand RIGHT ON IT without even knowing that was it. Now they are in my purse! My husband is bummed because we didn't get three tickets and he and I always go to the Lion's Club shows every Feb... but can't solve that one. I remember being at such a show the day I went into the hospital later for induced labor for my son.
I was also upset because I really blew it today on food. I overate on treats.. the sweet orange Olive Oil Tortas by Ines Rosales.. OMG those are good. And huge..very filling and not super sweet. BUT, I had three of them.. and they're 150 calories each and 8 g. fat.. so that was TOO Much. I could have handled one in my calories, not three. AND I had chocolate.. I had three Dove dark Promises this morning.. and then another three this evening. That's about 300 calories total. Other than THOSE things, I ate very well. And since I did a LOT Of exercise today, I only ended up with calorie differential of +158. Thinking if I get up and dance to several songs I may be able to neutralize that.
I do want to say that this morning when I had chocolate, it DID make me feel better. I was feeling so low and sad about my DH being mean.. which he didn't really mean, he was just stressed and trying to get something done and I felt there was NO time for me at all any more. We did talk it out a little bit, but my emotions are PMS level super-sensitive, so I was still teary on the edge. And you know, the chocolate made me feel better - like CHEMICALLY.. serontonin high - and was super super yummy. It was worth it. I just need to control it better. Ie. how about two Dove Promises then and if really wanted, then one more at night? That would have been half the calories. Most days I can manage without more than one piece of chocolate or sometimes none.. but not on severe PMS days, you know? Maybe you do. Give me a shout out if you resonate with this chocolate craving this time of the month.
Ok, time to get up and dance again. The Lyrics go "Shut Up and Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is". I'm not sure if that's the name of it or not.
Oh yeah, I looked at the song title - Katie Perry song, "One of the Boys", I think I'm recalling correctly.
