My New Healthy Kick

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve decided to try something that I try once in awhile to see if it will help me lose weight. I was pretty set to do it but knew it would be a challenge again, because it always is. I decided….to drink water.

My water drinking is very limited. During the weekdays I maybe have 2 small cups. I do drink tea but someone told me that wasn’t the same. Also, I do drink vodka with seltzer so I thought that counted as well…but I was told no. 

This all started when my partner recently asked me how much I weighed and wanted to know why I wouldn’t get on the scale so they could see. I just said it was none of their business, but they convinced me to do it- in a weeks time. So I decided that I was going to run and exercise and pound water. I have a 32oz. water bottle and a 32 oz cup for home. I also downloaded the plant nanny app (check it out, it’s kinda cool).

I was pounding water at work (and gagging). Why doesn’t it have a taste? Why do we need so much of it? Anyways, I had pee coming out of my ears. It was like twice an hour I was peeing for a straight 15 minutes. 

The second day I felt better, it became a little easier and I didn’t gag as much. I had run the night before and even went for a walk that morning before work. When I got home I decided I was going to step on the scale to see where I was at. I stripped down to my birthday suit and stepped on it. I had GAINED 20 pounds. 20 FREAKING POUNDS! At this point I’m fuckin sweating. I declared I’m never drinking water again and took a shower and went to watch tv. 

A short while after I was settled in bed my partner comes to tell me the scale is broke lol. So I’m still drinking water, and I’m actually ok with it…..for now.

Wish me luck people.

Quick Reflection

Hey. I know it’s been awhile again…life has been too real lately. 

But I have some time on my hands today, I’m home sick chilling with the porcelain throne 🚽. So I wanted to take the time to reflect on this last year or 2 and specifically something I’ve noticed.

FRIENDS

Over the last couple of years my relationship with many of my friends has changed. Best friends became acquaintances, acquaintances became great friends, and I’ve just lost some all together along the way. 

I’m pretty sure my sister attacked this in a previous post but it’s important to reflect on sometimes. When someone wants to be your friend and you’re important to them, they make time for you. Plain and simple. You don’t have to be up each other’s asses or talk everyday, but be recognized.

The older I get the more I weed out unnecessary drama and 💩. If you can’t make time to be my friend, you don’t get to be upset when I don’t consider you a friend anymore. When you make the time to be my friend and reach out, I reciprocate and make sure you know you’re my friend and are appreciated. 

Here’s a quick test to show you who your friends are: check you texts or voicemails…are the people you consider friends taking the time to ACTUALLY BE YOUR FRIEND?

Are you reaching out and conversation is one-sided?

Life happens, everything is crazy. Work is overwhelming, bills are overwhelming, kids are overwhelming, home is overwhelming. But life is too short, if you value someone- let them know. If it’s not working out….
