Three Things Thursday

  1. I was supposed to get my car running over the weekend.  My car’s not running.  It’s a point of mild frustration, but mostly just exhaustion.  We slaved basically all weekend, and it probably would’ve felt worth it if I’d gotten to hear my car fire….but I didn’t.

The Diet History

The first time I put myself on a diet was in seventh grade.  By my calculation, that means I was 12 years old.  No one PUT me on a diet, and I wasn’t truly “fat” in retrospect.  I remember feeling that way, though.  I imagine it probably stemmed more from being 12 years old, nearly six feet tall, and wildly uncomfortable in my own skin.

When this photo was taken, I was “fat” through my own lens…

Three Things Thursday

Today was a super busy day at work getting ready for big event this weekend…in the low 40s, in the rain.  Really looking forward to that…

 

 

Me IRL this week

I decided for Thursdays I’m going to do a “3 Things Thursday” series, so at least I’ve got that going for me.

Sunday Life (and Food) Prep

Sunday’s probably my favorite day of the week.  It usually starts in slow-mo with LOTS of coffee.  After that, it’s all kinds of productivity: laundry, general tidying up, grocery shopping if I haven’t fit that in already, and the usual prep for the week ahead before I hit the hay early.  I know, it’s tough to be as cool as me.

So that’s basically what I did today, but one of the biggest things I do to prepare for a successful week is get my work bag in order.

It’s a little crazy on Monday mornings, because I take all of my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks for the week into work in giant Thirty One bag full of healthy choices for all the time I spend at work.  I’m lucky to be able to have a good size mini-fridge stashed under my desk, so I only have to take everything in once, and more importantly I’m able to keep options I really like.

Doing this has helped me to lose 13.6 pounds in the last 3 weeks (as of yesterday morning), so I thought I’d share what’s in the bag…

…and so I started a blog

...and so I started a bog
…and so I started a blog

 

Thanks for stopping by!  Like the stolen Pinterest quote alludes to, I have a real tendency to work on overprocessing an idea for a long time before finally saying…..well….what that image says.  That’s exactly the process that got me to this blog.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start a blog.  Another was more action, less time processing plans to do things…like starting a blog.

Besides the fact that over processing is a character flaw I’m working on, my interests and life are so incongruent most of the time that I didn’t know where to begin.  Eventually, I just had to say, “fuck it,” and make a move.  Here we are.  It’s a blog about weight loss, cars, cooking, my current house hunt (and the likely house projects to follow)….it’s literally whatever I want.  Because I own the domain, and I pay the host, and I can.  Hopefully someone finds it interesting enough to follow along.
