*Disclaimer: This post is going to be 98% random thoughts, 2% weight loss. I know it has been awhile since I have posted. I apologize. I think I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself to write these big long posts which is why I have gone rogue a few times. As much as I love blogging it takes a lot of energy and after I am done with work I oftentimes don’t feel like writing I want to be more committed to blogging though so I am going to start doing smaller posts that way daily entries seem more doable.
Today was weigh-in day and I lost .4 pound
This is a big win for me because this week I especially failed at tracking my food. I didn’t do it once.
I was fully prepared for them to weigh me this morning, look at me and say “Oh sorry, you have gained 10 pounds” and then I would cancel my membership, go eat fast food and watch movies in my room. #mellowdramatic
I even talked about having a goal of going to the gym this week 3-4x and I haven’t gone. I feel super pathetic about this but at least…atttttt leasssttttt I’m being honest and talking about it. I guess that is what this whole “blog to be held accountable” thing is all about. On the bright side, the week isn’t over and I did workout this morning in my own special way (helped Grandma clean the garage AGAIN in the atrocious heat) = +4 Activity Points. I also have a date tomorrow morning with one of my mom’s friends to go bike riding on a local trail so I guess I can consider myself as “back on the horse.”
Also, CLICK HERE for a short video of Tessa chasing after me and getting really hyper because I was riding my bike. She’s my #1 fan. Thank you to my Grandma for videotaping and staying in control even though she wanted to murder the neighbor dog towards the end of the video.
Staying on the topic of weight loss and exercise, I want to put it out there that I am going to try my absolute best to work out and stay on track with my points. I would love to lose at least 1-2 more pounds by Friday, September 28th considering:
A.) That would be rad
B.) I am going to a wedding on Saturday, September 29th and I want to look and feel the best I have in over a decade.
Lastly, here is a random picture of me sitting in a tube top dress. I HATE tube top dresses with a fiery passion but on this particular day I decided to wear one because it was 105 degrees outside. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t look like a stuffed sausage in a cylinder, instead I thought my body looked nice. That feels good. You can’t see it but Tessa was smiling which meant she feels good about it too.
Now it’s time for you to enter this weird cotton pod thingy and travel through “Bad Transition Time” so that I can talk about random things and happenings in my life
This book addresses various topics ranging from family, friends, relationships, life, “tough stuff”, hopes & dreams and various other questions that teenagers get to answer with angst-filled and mellow dramatic responses. I was no exception. I almost threw this book away because a year ago I decided to get rid of all my diary’s and journals from high school because everything I talked about in those books were profoundly dumb, dramatic, pointless and delusional. It was nothing to be proud of and keep around to show my future children. No thanks. Right as I was about to throw this book away I decided to thumb through it and found something that I am SO GRATEFUL I now have possession of. Here it is:
I don’t even know where to start with how grateful I am that I found this. I am going to be framing this or laminating it and never losing sight of it ever again. If there was a way of playing back my life and it looking something like this:
I threw this book away ——> Magically, someone told me that I missed out on seeing this letter because I was an idiot and didn’t look in the book before trashing it, I would have been able to say that I finally regretted something in my life.
I feel like I just dodged a gigantic emotional bullet.
Having possession of this letter means more to me then I could ever explain or express to anyone. Since my mom died I have had to back track and find cards that she had given me on birthdays and holidays etc. Prior to finding this letter the only hand-written things I had from her were just a few sentences long or her old address book that I still have because I like to look at her writing. This is undoubtedly the longest letter I now have from her and I will NEVER lose it again.
Here are some less emotional pages from this journal that I just thought were funny.
Don’t mind the misspellings. I just really love how I wrote that my favorite emotion was “hyper.” HAHAHAHA Also, looks like I have always enjoyed helping people 🙂
This week I also got one of my tattoos re-done. My tattoo artist Jeremy Swan from BrokenArt in Silverlake, CA is the best tattoo artist out there. He also got his own show on TLC which he is taping right now! 🙂 Pretty cool!
About 3 years ago I got a tattoo from an artist down in San Diego of a quote that meant a lot to me. Unfortunately, the ink that the guy used wasn’t good, thus resulting in the tattoo fading. So I decided to go see Jeremy so that he could re-trace the quote and make it pretty again. Here is a before and after picture:
I can’t remember if I have already posted pictures of my tattoos that Jeremy has done (I think I have) but in any case, I wanted to share them again. Here is some of my body art:
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I WANTED TO SHARE WHAT I AM DOING TONIGHT….
DRUM ROLL PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE…….
I saw this at 9:30am on Facebook this morning, prayed, logged into the website and managed to get 2 tickets. SO I’M GOING TONIGHT TO SEE LOUIS CK AT A SECRET SHOW! HOLY SHIT BALLS, I AM SO EXCITED!
So that’s about it! Thanks for reading everyone!!!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! XOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOXOOXOXOOXOXOXOX
