A Hearty Retro-Active Fuck You

to Ancel Keys.

Saturated fat is a grand and a glorious thing.


Physical limitations

Half in the rain
1. So apparently I do have fibroids. Not sure how many, how big, or what I'm supposed to do about them. I suspect it's time to come off the birth control pills and accept that I really am 50 years old.

2. I've followed up a month of writing about my father by launching into a month of writing about an even more emotionally destruction relationship: the scale. Yesterday I had the epiphany that if I stick to paleo/just eat real food/don't binge/no gluten/no grains etc. I won't gain much weight, but unless I go back to heavy calorie restriction, I'm not going to lose much either.

This is probably what my body is going to be like. It's better than my high bottom of 191, but it's not ever going to be waif-like, sub-130 of my father's or my dreams. Even if I did go back to the stupidity of low-fat, calorie counting etc. it's possible I've broken my metabolism so badly with yo-yo dieting that I might not lose it all again anyway.

I'm not sure I can accept it.

3. I'm still not great at Yoga, but I've really felt like I was making progress. Today, Astrud was subbing for Minerva and teaching what felt like a pretty gentle class, and then she just threw in this asana that my legs couldn't do. It just wasn't going to happen and the more she tried to help me adjust the worse it got. Very discouraging. I'm not giving up. I love my yoga and my kirtan and meditation, but it's depressing to hit a physical wall like that.

Ultra-sound day! (OH JOY!)

I've been to yoga and chanted some Kirtan. I've got my figurine of Ganesha ready to go with me and I'm asking him to remove obstacles.

Namaste, Y'all.

Post-race Brunch

Post race

I love my job, I love my job, I love my job!

I come home tire, but happy. I sleep soundly. I'm treated with dignity and respect by my superiors and my patrons. I'm on my feet a lot and sometimes they hurt by the end of the day, but I get to spend most of my time making people happy, whether it's by showing them where the rest-rooms are, bringing them a plate of cookies, or just commiserating about the delay in their flight.

More love, more joyCollapse )

This is it guys!

7 months after the first application online at the depths of depression and desperation, my really real for reals job at the Centurion Lounge at SFO starts today.

I was at 430AM taking a hot bath so I wouldn't eat until 5AM. As of today, it's 93 days since my last binge, night eating, grain, gluten, sugar, honey, or artificial sweetener.

At 5AM, I had a green smoothie.
630AM-10 minute of free writing about a painful topic. (I'm doing a whole month on my father.)
7A-1 hr yoga class
815A-30 minutes of Kirtan chanting.
Walked to/from Whole Foods in the early morning sun.
945A-refueling and protein/fruit/veg cooking for later. (I also have a new batch of Bone Broth simmering.)
Just woke up and I'm getting ready to get dressed in my uniform.
At 245P I will be behind the Member Services Desk at the Cenutrion Lounge, ready to welcome in my first guest.
As of my birthday, I was weighing in at about 145 meaning nearly a 50lb sustained loss from March of 2013, but now based on a completely different way of eating.
