My Black Friday soo far

Friday, November 27, 2009

I got up at 5:30 to go to the gym. I had to go as I haven't this week and I need to get back in the swing. I can't believe how many people are on the road at this hour. Usually it is dead.

I completely forgot that my gym is smack dab in the center of a Staples, American Furniture and Best Buy. I had to park literally 2 blocks away from the gym. It took me 15 mins to fight the parking lot crowd, find the spot and get into the gym. I had to park 5 shops away and I was at the 2nd to last spot in the last row of the lot.

There were cops, sofas, donuts, people, merchandise everywhere.
And the gym was empty.
I must say though I had a smug self satisfaction of exercising while everyone else was shopping.

I will have my shop day when I lose weight. I did feel funny though walking those 2 blocks past everyone with my shower bag, clothes bag, purse in the morning non shower scruff lol!

I do like my gym and the girl who works at the counter. We always have a laugh.

Now back to work! emoticon

Reflection for the day

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Today I pretty much spent alone. I still ate more things that I should have but I think all in all it is good.

I tried to think about the things I am thankful for...

***the site
***my best friend, Amy
***my friends (Alicia, Michelle, Melanie.....)
***My mind and ideas
***My daydreaming
***My health

I painted today. It always makes me feel like everything is okay in the world. Like I am connecting and soaring.

I want to feel that way all the time. I want to do everything possible to be the type of person I admire.

I hope next Thanksgiving I am surrounded by a bunch of people I love.

Although I have been single for ... oh gosh... 5 years and 4 months, I have had some great love experiences. It has taken me a long time to get over the past and maybe I won't meet a dream guy. I feel like If I feel confident and I get healthy, I will be able to find some happiness and a relationship.

I love Jensen's twinkle in his eye.

I love how the husband in Medium is supportive. He puts up with a lot and is there for is family. He communicates, listens and loves his wife.

There is a intelligence, gentleness, humbleness in this man.

I love Billy Corgan's emotional vulnerability.

I love the banter between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I like the idea of not being able to get someone out of your mind. The idea of falling for someone who maybe you shouldn't.
Going against society for love.

Melinda's husband is attentive and supportive. I love this in a man.

I am adding Zak because when I first saw him I wanted to turn it off. I wanted to hit him.
Why is he provoking ghosts? He seems like a big jerk. But there is something about him that I can't stop watching him.

His mind, lyrics, intelligence.. The way he thinks about the world. His ideas. So attractive. Not to mention he has a great soulful voice.

I just want a guy who loves me for me. Someone who loves to kiss, be, discuss, share..
Someone who likes that I talk to much but I try not to.
Someone who likes that I love to hide with a book.
Someone who likes that I love to stop movies and books and discuss ideas.
Someone who likes that ideas move me, inspire me, push me.
Someone who inspires me to do everything I dream.
Someone who I inspire.
Closeness, Intimacy.

But as I get older, I find that I learn from all relationships and I think it would just be nice to kiss someone again. I have to lose this weight and kiss a guy in 2010 or I just go nutty.

I want this ---

Borrowed from -

EDIT --- I also want a guy who is or knows a mechanic. Every time I take my car in it is something different. Today - Rat's Nest. Sheesh. lol!

    Eharmony is awesome. I know you see the commercials and think that's so cheesy or who does that? But it really is a great way to meet people. I went on dates with five guys and the fifth one was the keeper. I've been dating him for over a year and he's perfect. He makes me a better person. So seriously if you want to get back out there and you're not sure how to meet people don't write off the internet option. The internet is awesome.

Week Two... 11/23/09 Status

Monday, November 23, 2009

Today I didn't get to go to the gym. I really did want to go because I know if I don't go - no progress.

Saturday, I didn't go to the gym but I drove 4 hours to go see a movie with some girlfriends and I ate really well.

Sunday, I didn't go to the gym but I ran around the house finally organizing and cleaning my crap.

Today I didn't go but I had to clean out my car so I can hand it in for inspection tonight.
I got up at 6am and got ready and went to the storage place right before work and tossed all my crap inside. Something I have been putting off since probably July/August.

I won't have a car tonight or tomorrow so I will miss again. But I am going to finally take my air conditioner out if I don't tonight. And then I will go after I pick my car up after work.

And then back at it on Weds. I am going to try tonight and Thursday to do some exercise videos to keep up the momentum.

Today I felt good because I was running late for work and I didn't cuss or even allow myself to care about what everyone else thinks. I stopped at Wawa, I got a large green tea and some fruit and went in to work.

I am trying to keep me as Priority One and to make the right choices as life is never structured and you have to be able to eat healthy all the time.

It feels good to do things, to get things off my to do list, to really care about myself and not put any effort in the workings of others.

I am trying to stay positive. I know it is going to be a hard few weeks. The depression of where I am and where I want to be and all the holiday partys... I am going to want to turn to pie.

Pie no good for me.
Must keep focused.

  No. Pie is certainly not good. Just think about results.
