First- my cat is guarding my pistachio bag and whenever I reach in to grab one, he nudges me and makes me pet him first. He’s a little genius.
Second- I feel so good about myself lately. I’ve been keeping up with my health in my YAY book and it’s really helping. I finally ventured off to the big girl machines and god damn, those sure work me to the point where I’m shaking out the door. I notice more and more some serious ab muscles, under a little layer of fat. I’ve been doing everything I can do try to lose it, but lately, I’m so happy with myself that if I do lose it and my muscles are visible, I’ll be happy. But just knowing how strong I am and am becoming is fine with me. That realization I’ve had with myself lately has taken such a negative weight off my shoulders and it’s awesome. I exercise daily, I eat pretty clean. So if I want to spontaneously get wings and waffle fries with my boyfriend, I’m gonna do it. And if that means no visible 6-pack, then whatever. LIFE IS TOO SHORT (message of the week, I’ve never meant it harder in my LIFE).
But if a 6-pack magically appears while I’m still eating occasional wings, ice cream, and waffle fries, then all the cooler.
My grandpa told me that all this yoga I’ve been doing has made me glow. I think he meant it as I’m radiating positive energy, but if I’m glowing like a little ball of sunshine, that works!!
Now I’m going to watch Bob’s Burgers, eat pistachios, and drink tea in bed while my cat continues to guard the bag.
