Sorry I haven’t updated this blog for a while. I have been busy trying to avoid a complete mental breakdown by focusing on ways to improve myself to celebrate my 40th year on this beautiful blue planet.
I hit that over the hill milestone on October 31st. Other than a sugar hangover from having absolutely no restraint with regards to Halloween candy, it feels no different than 39. 40 is the new 30 and thanks to some good aging gracefully genes, apparently I don’t look a day over 29. No photo of my wrinkle-less face to prove that though, I still hate all my selfies and rarely allow pics to be taken of me.
I lost FORTY pounds this past year by doing low carb, exercise and drinking lots of water instead of beer. I feel SO much better, physically and emotionally. Even heading into the wet, dark, dreary season I am less blah and depressed than I was last year fat and unhealthy. I no longer consider my drinking a borderline problem with alcoholism. That oughtta buy me some more time heart wise. Here’s a progress pic, taken back in August at about 150lbs. I’ve since lost another ten pounds, sadly mostly from my butt which is now flat and my chest which thankfully is not. Yet.
I quit biting my nails! For good. I have nice long fabulous nails now and have already bought about a dozen polishes for them.
I got a cat. Initiate “Crazy Cat Lady” stage. She is a tiny little stray, that I found hiding in our hay shack. Semi-feral and from one the neighbour’s many barn cats that he won’t spay. We caught her after three days of attempts and brought her inside. Over the last 2 weeks she has gone from bitey , scratchy, hissy freak cat to quite the affectionate little house kitty. She still bites and scratches but now it is playful rather than trying to kill us. Unfortunately our dog is not impressed so she lives primarily in a bathroom and our rec room. She was finally given a name a couple days ago, thanks to an Instagram post by Ellen: MAEBY. Maybe she will stay, maybe she will go, maybe she is so ugly that she is cute. I dunno. MAEBY. I guess that’s inspired from Arrested Development and there are thousands of pets with the name, I don’t watch much TV so whatever.
That’s all I have for y’all. I just bought a couple new domain names and am excited to start a new project. Which means I will have another project that I will be all obsessed about and work on gung ho about for six months and then leave hanging kinda like this one ;P
