How come balloons are lighter...

Thursday, October 02, 2014

From the time I moved to my new apartment last March, I have gained weight. It's not that I'm eating too much -- I'm almost always under the calorie limits recommended by SP -- but it appears I was totally starving while living with my past girlfriend, probably only getting half the calories my body needed. I'm now working on getting the calories I take in to be healthier: veggie juice, cultured milks, less of the ramen and mac-n-cheese diet.

In the past couple days, my desire to smoke (my pipe, I'm not a breather just a taster) has decreased, to the point I didn't even touch it yesterday. I'm going to try for two... you never know. I've never been an addictive smoker, and my times of not smoking are never due to a commitment, just a feeling I don't need to right now.

Still drinking enough water to float a small whale. You don't have to say it, Lady Mary, LOL.

What I'm not doing is exercising. I have the gym membership, just never have the energy to go there. The gym closes about an hour after I get off work, and I use that as an excuse to not go, but the truth is I probably would work out for less than 45 minutes anyhow so it's an excuse only.

My musical training is feeling just barely overwhelming. That's another thing -- I have so many things I need to maintain or increase, I feel I can just barely keep going, and adding another thing would make me lose my grip. The stresses of life itself are almost more than I can handle, and I need to think more positively about that. It is quite likely half of my stress is stressing over my stresses.

OK, enough for now. Today is payday, have to go spend it all as soon as the bank shows the money has been received.

    hey my friend
    don't let the world overwhelm you so much take a step back now and then ans slow down some and look at the stuff you love so much..we come to those places in out lives where we need to 'hibernate' for awhile from the things intruding on our lives you will get back to the weight loss thing you are still in recovery from the girl that swung you around and left you reeling that will go away but do your grieving anf forgiving because each time we step outside the box it is another learning experience and we accept it and go on i know how hard that is and i've been there but calmness and gratitude of where we are at present is what is important always..i love that you can continue your bardic training so immerse yourself into that and get it know how to eat well and you will do it and not doing the pipe how awesome for your voice to be are definitely making the right choices don't rush your life my friend
    love and hugs
