So much love, joy, gratitude etc.

1. STILL LOVING THE JOB!

More important-the job still loving me.


2. 293 days since my last binge.

3. I got a flat tire on my bicycle downtown on Friday, which totally sucks. However...I did not have a temper tantrum, I did not abandon my bike, and I did not binge to get back at my bike and the Universe. I got my bike home on BART, including carrying down the stairs and got it home, so I can deal with it tomorrow. I'm pretty sure the Universe was actually protecting me, because I was riding with my seat too low, and I thank that has been contributing to knee inflammation of late.

4. Still strict Paleo, aside from Kerrygold butter and still NO NUTS, NO DRIED FRUIT, NO APRICOTS. I'm less successful at forcing myself to do all eating and drinking sitting down while at home, but better slow progress than no progress.

5. THIS IS A BIG ONE!
As of last Monday, the Evil Scale God says 145 1/2. That's (I think) 46 down from 191 1/2 two years ago to the day. My crazy brain still wants 131 for a total loss (trophy number) of 60 lbs. Or about 4.5 stone.

However....
I am setting the intention that I will not get on the scale again for the rest of this calendar year, 2015.

I'm committing this to all of you, to my sponsor, to my program, and to the Universe.

6. I love Kirtan so much! It's become the center of my Spiritual Practice, in conjunction with my physical Yoga practice. I'm practicing a strict Exercise Abstinence. I get to do 1 thing as my exercise per day. Yoga OR Walking Or Weight Training OR the bicycle. If I try to sneak a timed walk in after or before Yoga, that's cheating.

7. Holy Guacamole, Batman! I grew...or at least am growing...something.








8. More crazy "paleo lifestyle" stuff I'm doing lately-"Bulletproof Tea," Chia seeds, freshly ground ginger and turmeric, the above-mentioned planting, revamping my exercise arrangements to maximize sleep. (The current protocol of getting up, meditating, exercising and then napping before work is totally not working.)

9. Awesome documentaries I've seen at the Roxie lately:

A Dangerous Game

Barge

Danny Says


10. DOGS, DOGS, DOGS!
I'll keep posting them RIGHT HERE!

Now I just have to get this knee inflammation sorted out. One of my yoga teachers thinks it's related to a tight IT band. Peggy concurs that it's possible, so it's time to re-introduce myself to Mr. Foam Roller.

Did I mention that THIS GUY-points at Icon, showed up at the Lounge a few weeks ago?

Oh wow, that's so cool! I only recently found out who he was related to, oddly enough.

The only designer jeans that ever truly fit me, back in the day.

I threw a little GV reference into my "Punditslash meets Dr.Who-verse" Yuletide epic some years ago. I think Anderson is the first person who ever wandered into the Lounge that I've written actual fic about. Sir Patrick Stewart was in once, but I've never written RPS about him or any of his characters. I've also had the opportunity to say "Welcome in" to two of the Go-gos.

And one person who, if I mention the name a large array of minds would be significantly blown.

Very cool. I heard of her initially as a designer and Vanderbilt is one of those "Old American" family names to me - like the Kennedys and the Gettys.

Oh cool. That would be so fun. I am envious of Sir Patrick, of course, such an inspirational man in life as well as an amazing actor. If one of them was Belinda Carlisle I envy that too, one of my very favourite singers ever.

Now that makes me curious :D

My Go-gos were Gina Schock and Jane Weidlin. No Belinda appearances thus far. I did get to meet the former Surgeon General of the US and Barack Obama's campaign manager from the 2008 campaign...I fangirled him pretty shamelessly.

Still very cool. I am such a Belinda fangirl, though. Oh that is very cool as well, and I would too (were I in the US, though I might anyway really).
