First day of the week, today is the day

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I have not been bad lately but I have not been good either. Today is the start of a new spark people, today I am getting tough on myself! No more, I can eat 2000 calories, why not? You know why not, cuz u arent running like your training for anything. You don't deserve to eat 2000 calories, so get the hell out of the kitchen. You got no business in there. No more cheating, no more magically turning a jar of almond butter that has 11 servings into 6 serving. Your Tablespoon measuring skills are pretty skewed there lady. So why do I keep waking up thinking 163.8 WTF is wrong with u scale. No WTF is wrong with u Julie, you did it. You would weigh less if I was walking the dogs everyday, running on my lunches like I was. Dance classes 3 days a week isn't cutting it. Getting up and breaking a sweat is what cuts it EVERYDAY. Oh ya and not cheating.

I have been reading/watch stuff on happiness lately. It's amazing how getting enough sleep can make you a much happier person. Winning a large sum of money or getting good sleep, sleep makes ppl happier. I also learned 6 seconds is the perfect amount of time for a hug, anything less and Oxycontin isn't released and you get no benefit of contact with another person. This was a big one, living an uncluttered organized life makes ppl happier. This prompted me to clean out my fridge last night. My overly stocked fridge was driving me crazy. It wasn't stocked with too much, just almost emty things that needed to be finished off. I made a giant pot of soup mostly with winter squash and other things. In the process I cleaned my veggie and fruit drawers. Roasted the seeds for a late night snack and made a big batch of tuna salad for the week. I was in the kitchen til almost 11 pm cooking. Now that everything has it's place and I feel like grocery shopping is deserved.

We are almost done painting, we just gotta get the baseboards done. I wish they had not been painted already 5 million times but oh well I am not stripping them and starting over. Last weekend I painted alone. This weekend Scott helped. You know what's funny, it was nice having his help. But I got so much more done so much faster without him and there was so much crabbing "ARE WE DOING THIS ALL DAY??? I AM HUNGRY!!! I am gonna listen to my two our podcast on Tech news on the tv" So uh ya painting alone is much more peaceful. My parents own a business together and love being with each other 24/7. I am pretty sure if I worked with Scott I would strangle him. I am no good at being around anyone too much though.

    My first hubby and I could not work together. We had some near death episodes. LOL. But my hubby and I work well together. We feed off of each other's strengths and weaknesses. He knows how to do a lot of things and is slow but meticulous. I'm organized and fast.

    I'm sick so I'm not eating well or getting much exercise in. Sickest I've been in years.

    hahaha Nate and I are a good team, but being around him 24/7 would get ugly haha. I've been cheating because there was just so much bad food around at my Aunt's funeral and then after the funeral at my uncle's house...grief can totally wreck a good streak that's for sure.

    Thanks for writing.

    You can do it girl! You know what to do and how to do it. One day at a time. You've go the right attitude for sure. :)
    That is very interesting on what makes ppl happy. I always think I'd be happier if I had more money, but I know that's not true. It's such a misconception though. Thanks for sharing what you read.
    Oh there is no way I could work with my husband and be around him 24/7. We would definitely fight. lol
    Good job on your painting!

    Yeah, having things organized and clean makes me feel freer and clearer in my head.

    I'm with you and ready to go! I've been doing the same thing with peanut butter, not measuring it and eyeballing it and telling myself "Sure, that looks like ONE tablespoon!" No more! I also feel a LOT better with sleep vs. no sleep.

    Interesting on the happiness stuff. I know I am a completely different person when I get very little sleep or a full 7-8 hours. So I believe that one for sure!

    Love your attitude about it being the first day of the week! Let's doo this!
