Hope I can convince my sister to work on my dress. Move bed. Screen. Exercise. Water. Um, maybe get dressed. Write. Finish Weight.
Task one: Not yet completed. Sort of makes me think I should practice sewing – make a little apron or teach myself more about it, but I don’t think I have a very deep desire to do it. It’s just a passing thing, and I have so many passing things, I try not to give in when I can.
Task two: Bed is moved, managed to knock over a cup of water on what must have been a dried ink spot and now I’m Billy Mays’ing the fuck out of it. This is not a great position for the bed, but it makes a change and I’m going with it.
Other tasks? Totally put by the wayside while we voyaged collectively to Boulder for no specific reason other than to go to Boulder. I don’t have anything against Boulder, even being a CSU alumna. Didn’t care about it while I was going there and I can’t claim to care now. I think it’s a pretty town and I love the Shakespeare Festival despite being rained on so hard I thought I was going to die of hypothermia last time but it definitely, hard as it must work to do otherwise, has a sort of aura. If you think you belong there, you probably feel it draw you in. If you think you don’t, then, well, they won’t miss you. Lots of restaurants. Lots of organic looking restaurants. Lots of options, really. And where do we end up for my lunch (and way overdue, first substantive meal of the day)? Chipotle. Kind of an argh moment, but I got exactly what I wanted without it being fucked up and rice snuck in or something and I’m glad I did because I needed food in the worst way.
I still do, really, but I am being incredibly lame and not getting up and cooking it. Lightheadedness and doofy disconnectedness with your body is kind of how you start to think that dieting is crazy. When really, what is crazy, is not giving yourself nutrients because you are expecting diet magic to happen. You’re hoping you can just wait it out.
You can’t wait out your hunger. You really can’t. You can pace it. You can curb it. You can slow down and neuter it. But you can’t turn it off. And you don’t want to. Your hunger and your sense of satiety are some of your most crucial biological functions. Same with sunburn. It is your body’s way of telling you to pay some damn attention, please. Moping about having to exist is not cute. It’s unfair, but it’s the same unfairness that everyone has to deal with so buck up, settle down, and eat some goddamned 9pm eggs.
Wow, got a little grouchy there. I’m not. I just need to eat. Check the people in your life? Are they bitching at you? Cook for them and endear yourselves to one another.
Yesterday: 160.6 – there is no sense in these things, but I’m simply reporting to keep myself aware
Goal: 155 by June 16
