Water For Elephants : and other stuff
Didn't read the book but shoulda. Probably will add it to my Kindle and read on vacation. Yep, Vacation is looming. We leave on Monday -our wedding anniversary-due to a dog sitting issue--my babies must be cared for. Don't quite have a destination locked in yet. Maybe Hilton Head, Sc. OY!
Saw the movie. Wow. Heart string plucking. Crying, laughing, gnashing of teeth, clapping loudly (i was the first one ) when the bad guy gets beat on, just a great experience. Best actors and Best film nominations are deserved and expected.
AND I REALLY GET THE OBSESSION THAT GIRLS HAVE OVER THIS GUY-ROBERT PATTINSON.
OTHER STUFF Still processing the new body image-clothes wearing stuff. confused. wigged out a bit last weekend and food is still not where it should be. Other things too but processing that as well. Work is a bugaboo. Lots of aches and complaints in my body because I've eaten some sugar ....and it does not agree with me.
Back on track -minute by minute. Following challenge menus and following to the letter because I know I will Feel Better Physically by eating the essentials and letting structure mold my days and getting back to my exercise routine. Lots of emotion and personal stuff that just doesn't get worked out with food...journaling, meditating, prayer, patience, talk-yes.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
