I like taking pictures of food I cook/eat. I sometimes draw, paint and craft things for people I love. I live with a man who just so happens to be the love of my life, so it's pretty convenient.
My current priorities are to be healthy, save money for a bigger home and get back to creating things.
So as I was cleaning my fridge, I had placed all of the items from the lower level onto the floor so I could do scrub off all the sticky gunk inside. Bronson took interest of a large lemon I had placed on the floor next to all the salsas and cooking sauces, and he proceeded to toddle off with it as children so often do with things that don’t belong to them. He’s play fighting with the lemon and I’m finding it so adorable. After I was done cleaning, I turned to find him looking/sniffing for something. I walked over to see if he had accidentally lodged the lemon into a crevice he couldn’t get it out of. Turns out he lost the fuckin’ lemon somehow in my small home, and I looked EVERYWHERE and could not fuckin’ find it. So now there’s a lemon sitting somewhere in the house that’s going to rot and be disgusting and ruin my life some time in the near future all thanks to my asshole dog.
Or maybe my thighs are too meaty?
When I had an obsessed focus on health and fitness in the cold fall/winter of 2011, I wore sweatpants to jog/run every night and never encountered this awkward problem. But I’m really happy to be back on the grind. I’ve been eating much cleaner and have started back on my 2-3 mile nightly routine. When I had last been physically fit, I was doing 4-6 miles per night, so call this baby steps for the time being. I had fallen off the wagon last year in April due to life/physical complications, and just stopped trying to live a healthy lifestyle (ironically.) Big mistake. But I feel very determined right now to better myself and relive all the happiness I had felt from treating my body the way I should. I have been at it for about 3 weeks now, and I’m already feeling/seeing changes in my body and my food cravings. My biggest goal right now is to eliminate processed foods from my diet. The biggest challenge I’m facing in that aspect is SNACK FOODS. Chips, veggie straws, pretzels thins, chocolates bars.. I have to stay away all together or else I’ll never stop wanting them.
As lazy as I can be, I have slowly and happily reinserted exercise as a part of my daily routine. It’s really nice to have that alone time, when I get to enjoy my guilty pleasures on my iPod, like Eminem and Immortal Technique. And yeah, I still use an iPod because I don’t know how to listen to music on my Android phone. I just don’t.
I’m turning 27 this year, and I want to feel my best at that age.
Okay, and I want a reason to treat myself to new clothes and tattoos, too.
I officially have more money saved than money owed.
This is such a great feeling.
I’ll obviously still take my time to pay everything off, so I have money on hand for whatever curve ball life may throw my way. (I mean, it’s the sensible thing to do.) But I already feel so free!
Fuck off, credit card debt from paying for my 2013 car insurance.
Fuck off, car loan!
