I miss blogging and I miss reading friends' blogs. Live Journal circa 2004-2005 was absolutely entertaining and wonderful. Long winded musings have been replaced with tiny little poops of the mouth. Perfectly fine. I love poops of the mouth. But I truly miss the epic mental spewing of my pals.

I've been sick for a week. I'm hoping it magically dissipates by tomorrow evening as I am looking forward to a much needed girls' night with some of favorite women of this universe.

I miss blogging.

I don't hate the new Facebook layout. It's pretty funny how many people are traumatized by it. As a self professed Facebook addict, the changes didn't cause my arteries to explode or anything.

I want to lose my first good chunk of weight before our Thanksgiving Ohio trip. My motivation and follow-through is ridiculous. As in ridiculously horrendous. "What's it gonna take?!" runs through my brain on a daily basis.

I want babies.

How did I miss out on the band Rooney for all these years? Story of my life.

Happy first day of Autumn.

"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!" -Percy Bysshe Shelley

Quote of the day... of the year.

“A man who is master of himself can end a sorrow as easily as he can invent a pleasure. I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.” -Oscar Wilde ♥

Sideswiped car. Broken cell. A phone consultation that never called. Seriously, it's a good thing I'm a positive person. Today has been the most annoying day in a while and it's not even noon.

On a more positive note (speaking of)...

Hubby's in Alabama this week rehearsing for their Birmingham CD release show on Friday. I'll be flying the red eye + a layover late tomorrow to arrive in 'Bama on Thursday morning and will be enjoying my first taste of the Dirty South through the weekend. I'm not sure what to expect but I'm always up for a good adventure! Lots and lots of adventures planned for this year.

I participated in and completed my first 5K last weekend! I mostly walked it with spurts of jogging but I look forward to continued training so I can jog most of the next one. Plus, I made my best time ever for that distance! I also attended my first hockey game that same day (Kings vs. Canucks) and it was awesome! All the action and testosterone and violence. I kinda loved it. ;) I ended up meeting and hanging out with a lot of new people this past weekend and I must say, it is absolutely refreshing to encounter people who are genuinely kind, funny and humble. Besides the friends I already have (who are amazing), it's sometimes easy to forget (especially living where we live) that those types of qualities exist.

What else?

This year is seriously flying by. As I age another year, I'm needing a major reset / re-focus on my ever-looming health goals. It's not just me anymore who is being affected by my lack of consistent focus & dedication. What's it gonna take?

“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” -Helen Keller

My concentration is SHOT this week. My brain is still on vacation. Last weekend, Pauly and I met up with a couple of our favorite Canadians in Vegas. Although the trip was short (left for Vegas on Saturday morning and came home Sunday evening), we had such a wonderful time. I think I’m a vacation addict. This year was supposed to be the year we actually slowed down and it’s turned out to be the complete opposite. I’m always the one to worry about doing too many things, going too many places and spending too much while Pauly always reminds me how lucky we are and to just enjoy our life. I think I came to his realization last weekend while in Vegas. We pay our bills and we’re responsible so why not enjoy as much adventure as we can, while we can? There will be a lot of time later in life to slow down and live a so-called normal day-to-day existence. So for now, life (and especially this year) is our great adventure!

"You may delay, but time will not."

Something clicked in my head at the beginning of this week. Well, really, the Friday before. I've made several shoddy attempts to start a weight loss regimen over the last year only to find myself giving up after a few days. This week feels different. My mind set is different. I've successfully controlled my portions for the past 5 days, consumed the recommended 3 liters of water per day (based on my weight and activity level) and have exercised 4 days this week so far. I know it's only 5 days. And I quite literally have 59 years of the same progress to maintain ahead of me. But this time, I'm feeling determined. I'm battling cravings and winning. I'm looking towards the future and for the first time in perhaps 6 or 7 years, I'm visualizing the end result. I have a future I need to take quite seriously. The months are flying by so vigorously and I've had enough of being stagnant and lazy.

Eyes forward.
