yes. went for a walk yesterday, took a little nap on one of the promenade benches…wonderful breeze off of the water, hazy sky and still, i’m totally sunburned. it was only about 1 1/2 hours total i spent out there…
the tops of my thighs, my feet, my face are bright red. had lotion on but didn’t expect to get sunburned. hit the gym and wet my towel down because it would have really hurt wiping the sweat off my face.
i’ve lost a few inches off of my waist and i’ve lost about 6 pounds. been eating lots of organic, vegetarian fare. stopped off at a great health food grocery store while heading to visit Mom. this store has been there since i was a teen. it’s really expanded to selling health products as well as fresh organic fruits/veggies and vegan/vegetarian products. SO Much cheaper than the healthfood stores around here. i loaded up on veggie burgers and organic cereal (got a great one with pumpkin seeds) and almond milk. i am totally and completely hooked on Stonyfield Farms Vanilla nofat frozen yogurt. it is so freaking good…i dare say, better than ice cream and i love ice cream.
i’ve cut my consumption of bread by about half, only have an occasional bowl of pasta, and have added more nuts and dried fruits to my diet. there is a great cranberry nut mix i get at the local grocery store…so good.
i have to say…i feel good. like my body is becoming unplugged…i feel less bloated. i feel healthier.
tonight, it’s work time. i’ll be working for the holiday as well. got to go to a work party this past saturday…had lots of fun.
trying to read more, have a couple of books on my reading list at my library account website. i love that i can have a book list and add them to the holds list. great feature. i can also pay library fines, see how much i have in my account etc. very convenient.
currently listening to:
-the new Bon Iver album…will see him in concert in Aug
-listeing to Young the Giant. great voice.
-reading “Prayer For Owen Meany” again…
waiting to view:
Greenberg with Ben Stiller
Salome – by Carlos Saura (whom i was exposed as a teen- saw Blood Wedding)
Sense & Sensibility – BBC version
Sex, Lies, and Videotape – haven’t seen in a while
waiting for Jane Eyre to come out of DVD
caught up on the first two episodes of True Blood (not easy to find online for free!!) damn, Eric is so hot. i liked the flashback to how Bill became part of the mainstream movement. don’t like him as king though.
am still and utterly gaga for a coworker. it supremely sucks. seriously sucks.
the Gods are cruel.
a fellow tech whom i worked with at the hosp where i worked when i came back to NYC has gone and moved to Scandinavia, on invitation from a doc. she’ll be working as a tech there. very awesome and wonderful opportunity for her. this has somewhat gotten me to begin taking a little more seriously my desire to travel abroad. europe for her, is a hop, skip, and jump away. i envy her and admire her for taking such a big step. maybe one day, i’ll do the same.
have been checking out the world vets website. they do great work.
rocking out to Young the Giant’s
