Of Trips and Excuses
Thursday, July 22, 2021
Hello again. Been a while since learning of Sparks' demise. Figured that I would toss a post up on here to ramble on about nothing and everything. Waiting for the tea to brew while I let the words come to my fingertips.
I had to cancel the cruise for a bunch of reasons, the major one being that it just isn't fair for me to press my possible germs onto other people who are just trying to go about their daily lives. And I found out that I need the money for a tree removal at my house.
So I instead booked a cabin in the woods (near civilization this time, for good or ill) for a week to just have control of my life and not have to do a darn thing. Me time. Not that I am really in a situation where that is a great rarity. I live alone with the guard/marshmallow dog and only spend part of my time around family and work. But it will get me out of my house and away from work for a while, though work is following me a little bit while I will be out there. No biggie.
And I had grand ideas that I would lose five pounds by the time of my first vacation in a few weeks (then 5 weeks). HAH! I have managed to have several self-sabotage days since the first good intention crossed my mind. But I will keep truckin'. Heck, I've pretty much had the same 5 pounds since February up and down. But I know I can do better. I just have to get off my rear and exercise, then worry about how I am eating to go with it.
Starting to think that one of my meds is holding me back a bit with extra hunger (and munchy) signals. I'm sure that others I am on cause problems, but I have been working around those so far. But I can't get off of it yet. Just have to wait that out. Only trying to come off of one med at a time to make sure all is well before starting in on another one.
So now I am looking forward to being with family for two weeks and my birthday week away from people (with the dog though). And I am already looking forward to that cabin and the things I want to do!
