Hello, New Year | Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017
I just got back from the grocery store. I didn’t have anything to make a meal in the fridge. I just got some stuff to make one of my favorite salads: eggs, kale, carrots, extra sharp cheddar cheese, blue cheese dressing, ham, and cranberries. Yum. It was delicious.
I’ve been staying away from most carbs and sugars. I don’t eat bread, pasta, or rice. I don’t eat corn or potatoes either. However, I make exceptions about once or twice every month and go out for chinese food. I still have to have my cranberries in my salads and my nutrigrain bars as well! I eat my peanut butter cookies every once in a while, too.
I started my diet in late August. I’ve lost 39 pounds since and have yet to join the gym. I’m planning on finally joining next month in February. There’s just been so many obstacles in my way. I even got sick last month and was planning to join this month. Now I need to give myself enough time to heal before I hit the pool or hit the fitness equipment at the gym.
Swimming is going to be my main thing though. I love swimming. I’ll be attending the aqua aerobics classes about three times a week and swimming laps after and/or before class. I don’t know what equipment I’ll be getting on. I guess I’ll find out when I join. I should probably hook up with a personal trainer. So I guess you can say that’s my New Years resolution: join the gym and get fit.
I stopped reading It by Stephen King and Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. I did lose interest in It. I probably won’t finish it anytime soon. However, I’m going to go ahead and start back reading Interview with the Vampire and move on to the next book in the series.
I know that I need to stop neglecting my website. I want to write more and keep it up to date. I don’t want to shut it down. I’ve gotta get my ass in gear this year. So I will be writing more and continuing to study on my own time. I don’t know how often I will write. I can’t make any promises. So that’s another New Years resolution.
I cut my hair last month. Again. I had cut it some months back too. It grew back out. But I cut it closer to the scalp this time. I wanted to start over and start with shorter hair. I will be natural until my hair grows back out to the length I desire, but I will be wearing wigs for a while as it’s growing. I have been rocking wigs for about 2 years now though anyway. So even when it grows back out to the length I want, I will probably still be wearing wigs!
