Fuck that Funk! Well, that's what I'm going with for now. And by now, I mean right now! I'm living in the moment. I finally drug my plumper than should be ass out of bed. I've been laying in my bed wallowing in swollen self pity about the nasty humidity, oppressive heat and the grief it is causing me! The hubs has been doing pretty much, it all! Finishing up the remodeling, running kids, making sure the dogs and kids have food etc...( Yes, I know he's all that and heaven too. Please, I hear it enough!) As I was laying there watching Wicked Women I decided that it was time to just say fuck it! Get out the bed, big girl and get your shit done! It isn't going to do it self!
See, the thing is, the one person who probably knows me better than my mother-shucking sister, is having a baby. She is my Greek goddess. She taught me how to open a combination lock in 6th grade and we were bonded for ever. I had to get out of this house and buy her little spanakopita (spinach pie for the Greek challenged) a gift. It couldn't be breast feeding pads or baby puke cloths. I had to do this myself. It needed to be from me and have my touch! I did it. While I was out, sweating my ass off, I also bought myself a little something to wear. It wasn't anything special and it sure is hell not the size I want but if I don't feel good in the skin I have right now, how will I ever start working on getting where I want?
As of right this moment, I have a lot of things going through my mind. I'm having some more intense Lupus symptoms flaring up along with the Chron's. I've got my mind set on fighting through some of this fatigue and taking back the time I spend in bed. I need to focus on my diet, exercise, and inner health. Not to get all, crunchy granola on any body but I'm thinking getting back to as much organic as possible and very close to vegetarian minus some fish and an occasional filet mignon. I also need to find the energy to get my run on. It makes me such a calmer person. I feel so strong when I run and even stronger when people are shocked that I run with Lupus. Enough of my rah rah rah self-cheerleading! I just like to share, for those who have Lupus and for those that don't. You can always start over and change yourself!
I figure I should wind this long winded all about me blog up! I have a busy day tomorrow. I get to see my Greek Goddess and all my girls from high school and college. We get to drink Bloody Mary's and champagne toasts til we are silly and make her jealous! I also have convinced the Greek to let me take some pics of her belly! There is nothing as beautiful as a pregnant woman and her belly. I did it 4 times and never had one picture! So, I'm absolutely thrilled to think I can give her that. Ahhh, the beer and sentiments of the evening are getting to me! It's time to call it quits!
Take Care of You....
