Last night my daughter fixed my hair in a bun. I like that looks of it from the rear view. But not so sure about my face with a bun. I'm having a hard time looking like an adult. I like my hair long and flowing. Adjusting to mid life is a constant battle for me!
But battle I continue to do.
I had a really good sweaty workout this morning and then returned home to a nice bowl of vegetable soup. I packed a hard boiled egg, a dill pickle and some gluten free crackers to snack on in between students.
I have a friend. I'll call him "C". He saw one of my dating ads. He knew me from back in the day. He is a competitive body builder. He is on my Theory of 9 list. Just a nice guy to talk to when I am lonely. We just text. I explained to him my feelings about sexting. How I just don't go there.
So he is one of my "pocket fellows". I can just pull my phone out of my pocket when I need a friend. He usually always responds. Pleasantly. :)
We were talking about weight training and my continued battle of the bulge. He told me that diet is 90% of the equation. Interesting. He trains like a beast. Yet he still watches his diet. Especially pre competition.
So I am once again going to the next level. Portion control. Whole foods. Lots of water.
I know I sound like a broken record.
But I am determined to overcome!
I am looking for a part time job for my upcoming slow time over the holidays. I am thinking Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to noon. So that means I will have to rise super early to get my workout in.
It's a good thing. Money means more freedom. And working more means less time to worry.
I put up another ad on the dating app. My Theory of Nine has dwindled significantly. I paused over the body type description: Slim, Athletic, Average, A Few Extra Pounds, or Big and Beautiful?
I am determined to be authentic. So I chose "A Few Extra Pounds". But I am looking forward to the day when I can chose "Atheletic"! (I would settle for "Normal").
I can't believe I just typed that. I have always prided myself on being anything but normal!
Life is strange. And so am I...And proud of it!
On that note, Happy Thursday! :)
