Now Playing Tracks

I’ve had a flood of anonymous people (or one person asking multiple times) for a picture of me and “the boyfriend” to prove he exists.

He does not like promoting things privately in social media therefore I’ll end up taking this picture down in a day or two.

This was taken in February/March at his great aunt’s birthday party. And yes I took a picture of a picture because we rarely take pictures of the two of us on my camera…this picture is one I have on my desk at work.

Ooh tumblr….you want to know what I’m up to and it isn’t even noon yet!

The crockpot contains a Boston butt roast that will be dinner with Italian bread (not picture in the bread maker currently) and the salad pictured.

In the cast iron is what will become matzo ball soup. The boyfriend has been begging for this for awhile and today I had the time.

Lastly is the chicken, potatoes, and onions that will supplement my salads for the week (salads are already made in the fridge).

Still up on the list — homemade spaghetti noodles (the whole reason I needed a roller), hard boiled eggs, and cookies for dessert.

I’m kinda enjoying this whole full prep meals on Sundays again. It feels good to be in a routine and work on eating healthier.

My weekend in photos….

1. Got bit by my bow while doing target practice.

2. The boyfriend’s dog got extra snuggles.

3. The healthy part of our dinner last night. (We had mussels, lobster ravioli, and lobster tails for the other half)

4. This morning’s food prep work in the kitchen for breakfast (cast iron with eggs) and lunches (salads and hardboiled eggs).

Been a busy weekend with stuff around the house. Looking forward to a busy work week and celebrating Rosh Hashanah. Even got some apples for apples and honey time.

I haven’t even gotten my day started at work and I’m halfway towards my 10k steps for the day thanks to a 2 mile run on the treadmill.

I sat for nearly 8 hours straight yesterday traveling to and from a fundraiser. Then proceeded to lay on a sofa for another 4 hours before bed. My body ached in the I’m-not-comfortable-because-I-haven’t-moved-around-recently type of way.

I have the evening shift and instead of sleeping an extra hour before grading papers and going into work I decided to get on the treadmill.

One common theme I’ve noticed with my fitbit is that no matter how many hours I attempt to sleep I’m either not getting enough sleep or it’s not a solid uninterrupted sleep. Otherwise as I suspected I’m getting on average 8-9k in steps a day without working out. Now that I know this I can make better decisions on a solid workout schedule and diet.

I’ve had a negative image sorta couple of days. Like super negative.

While driving this afternoon a song came on the radio and I was just too deep in thought when my boyfriend grabs my hand and says “hey”. Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything” was playing on the radio. And the part where he sings ‘Grab somebody sexy and say hey’ was when my boyfriend grabbed my hand. When I realized that my heart skipped a beat.

I may mentally not be once where I used to be, but in that moment I felt better about myself then the previous week.

All negative feelings will probably come back when I realize I can’t fit into anything in my closet tomorrow morning. But at least someone else sees in me what I once saw in myself. I just need to get that feeling back.
