And Just Like That…

My brain will probably be exploding onto this blog.  Brace yourselves, it could be a bumpy ride.

I’m definitely starting to like my shorter hair.  Particularly how it looked on Saturday.  Good thing it only got to go shopping with me.  Better luck on a day I have something to do.  Anyway, so we all take so many selfies I think we’ve become immune to what we actually look like.  I’m not the most confident girl in the world although I do find myself to a pretty and attractive lady.  For as crummy of a day I was having that day, I felt really pretty.  My boyfriend thinks I’m pretty.  And really, that’s al that matter.  My eyes go from green to grey to blue with a brown/hazel ring in the middle.  I think we need to own our appearance.  I have that funky scar on my cheek (I swear it from an acne mark that I got a sunburn on!) and I have another on the other side, where I had stitches.  And its what makes me, me.  I don’t look 27, which I awesome, and I’m trying to learn to be content with myself.  I’m not being cocky or arrogant; I’m working on my confidence.

This Old Navy was closing and I got each of these for $1.49.  What a steal.  That brightened my day.  And some jeans for like $4.  I’m a bargain hunter to the core.

I bought these pillows and curtains to tie in my whole living room together.  The tray on my table still needs some stuff, but its all a work in progress.  My apartment is really dark.  I know that window gives the perception that there’s a lot of light BUT I also have 2 light on in the photo.  My coworkers joke that I grow mushrooms in my apartment.  It would probably be an ideal place.

My sister and her husband moved into my parents’ house (they have 2 dogs) and my sister and her husband have 1.  So that blue bed is their dog’s bed.  Apparently Ricky and Lucie took it over.  Its really not made for 2 dogs.  I’m curious as to which dog was in there first and which one moved on in on the other.  Lucie is the light one; Ricky I the dark one.  My sister says that the 3 dogs rotate sleeping in it.

I found this on Pinterest, but didn’t pin it, so I cant link it BUT I thought it was funny.  I laughed very loudly as I read it.  Makes total sense to me. 

Also, I’ve been trying to clean up my eating and really get back in gear.  So far it is feeling good.  I’ve had a few moments, ok, an entire weekend where I wanted to dive face first into a quart of ice cream topped off with candy, but I didn’t and I’m feeling good.  I don’t see any real changes yet (its only been a  week) but I do feel less gross.  That’s really all I can say.  I’ve been tracking my food again just to see where everything falls and my sugar intake has been low, which is what I’m going for.  Giving up candy and ice cream for Lent has really helped.  I’m not the type to buy cookies, so I basically gave up sweets.  I’m hoping to continue this streak and really get it going.  I want a flatter/better looking middle this time around.  My training is balls to the wall and my eating is really like 90% clean, so this could totally happen.  I’m not being obsessive, if I really want something that’s more of a treat, I’m gonna have it and move on.  But, I don’t need dessert or ice cream everyday and I don’t need bowl after bowl of cereal. 

I think that’s a good amount of rambling for the day.  I hope you have an awesome hump day.
