Living in a Dream

Sometimes I just think too much

I shouldn’t but I do

Question how much freedom your path affords you. Be utterly ruthless about it.
It’s your freedom that will get you to where you want to go.
Hugh Macleod

Well that could have gone better. The weekend I mean. I planned on getting much done and ended up doing very little of it. In fact Sunday I spent the day just watching TV and feeling the aches, pains, bug bites, and generally miserable effects of Saturday.

I’m not sure how that happened other than I was trying to keep Lyo from hurting himself too much more by working on the Gypsy Wagon. I failed of course. I should know better by now. 😛 I really should. But it was worth a shot in any event.

Then we had the New Boss over for drinks. You know me well enough by now to know that I took advantage of that. 😀 And I did. We spent 5 hours just talking and telling tales out of school with the guy. Unfortunately most of it was spent standing.

Now I know I’m not in the same kind of shape I was in years ago. But damn. I didn’t think I was that out of shape. At least not in my legs. 😦

But I guess I am. And I can really blame it on winter. Too much sitting and not enough walking. Something I need to change.

Sometimes I’m really bad about change. It just doesn’t seem as fun as my old habits. 😛


Pisces Begining

“I seek true intuition and Dreams, Insight to show a clear future path. Let my escapes into daydreams be fruitful, Let the psychic teach me compassion. Help me to remain stable on the illusive path of the spirtiual.”

As always I wonder what this new sign will teach me in our time together. I’m not sure what I’ll learn, but I know it’ll be an experience. ~wry grin~ Especially with everything that seems to have started this month. And of course in the coming time with Pisces there is much going on. Starting tomorrow Lyo will be in surgery then recovery. I have dentist and  eye doctor appointment later this month and the end of March. Not to mention I am still experimenting with treatments for my back.

Speaking of whch I think I’ve stumbled onto an enhanced treatment. It builds on what I was already doing- St. John’s Wort- by adding in Lavender and Clove oils. Of course I now smell like someone is baking all the time, but I can sit up right for longer than 2 minutes. The downside is that you do have reapply it every few hours, but it is doable.

As for my diet….it is still going strong. I’m slowly adding in the Y-scores into my Calorie counter (very slowly) but it is working out like I thought it would. I do have that chart if anyone is interested. And at last count I was down to 14 lbs to my goal weight. ~big grin~

All in all….Aquarius was good to me and Pisces is looking to be a fun time as well.

Work and the things we do to avoid it.

“Inventiveness  and insight deep, Bring to me while I sleep. Self-expression feeds the soul, Wise Dragon help me find a richer goal.”

This is going to be an interesting month. And I’m not sure if it is good or bad yet. ~wry grin~ On one hand Lyo goes back in for surgery and the only thing I can think about is if he stays for the night I might not be sober by the time I have to be at work. Well, sober enough to drive, but definetly not feeling 100%. ~amused~ It will be the first time in a month or two that I’ve had anything to drink without him there. Damn the promise. ~chuckles~

In any event….today is all about working on simplifing my diet. It isn’t going to change all that much. Since I’m having trouble keeping track on a daily basis I’m going to try to work out an average calorie for food groups with pointers on which ones are actually lower than the average I come up with. I will also be simplifing the Y-scores too- even though the system is pretty simple on its own. But not daily simple if you don’t pay attention to it…like me. ~wry grin~

Wish me luck…this is going to be an interesting day.

An update on Life in General

Life might get back to normal someday soon…but I’m not going to count on it. ~wry grin~ At the moment my expirment with St. John’s Wort is working out well. It has made the pain less…or at least to my perception. I’m down to using it twice a day now instead of every few hours, which is good considering for a small bottle it is $13 in my neck of the woods. And at the rate I was using it…I would’ve needed another bottle by next Wednesday. ~shudders~

In other news…I fell off my diet for two days. I’m getting back into it, but only partially. Apparently I’m having trouble with the Y-score part of it. Which could be why I’m having such a hard time with my nerves . I’m not sure why I’m having such a hard time keeping track of it….though keeping it out of mind might have something to do with it. ~amused~ I’m still trying to come up with a simple tracking method that doesn’t have me switching between screens so frequently.

I found an app that works great for tracking calories, but the big downside is that it won’t sync between phone and tablet. The other really really REALLY annoying feature is the bloody thing crashes on my tablet everytime I do something. ~sighs~ But all that aside…I want something similiar…only more.

Anyone out there an app writer for Droid who wants to work on this?

And on the personal front…

Work is going well, picking up and all that fun stuff.

Lyo is going back in for another surgery later this month and then is housebound during recovery for 2 weeks.

And have I mentioned that since I’m paid hourly February is the worst month in the year? Oiy….it tightens everything up. ~1/2 smile~

Oh well…I guess it is better than the alternative. I’m not that bored yet. ~laughs~

Lazy Day

“Inventiveness and insight deep, Bring to me while I sleep. Self-expression feeds the soul, Wise Dragon help me find a richer goal.”

It took me awhile but I finally got around to using a keyboard with my Thrive tablet. And I’ve got to say…I’m a silly girl for waiting for so long. ~wry grin~ Don’t ge me wrong the virtual keyboard is pretty good, but the amount of writing I do requires a keyboard. Which of course means I’m going to need another SD card sooner rather than later. ~laughs~

So another resolution or goal for this year is write/think about the Pagan holidays from my perspective. We all know that I take what I want and then spin it to my tastes. Hell, I think we all do that for one thing or another. And I never claimed to be that different. ~laughs~

So in any event…I’ll try to post something on the holidays that explains my POV and how I came about that particular thought/belief/theory. I can’t guarentee that it will be anything remotely coherent depending on the day…but I will try. ~smiles~

In the mean time….

my diet is working out pretty well. I’m with in 19 lbs of my goal weight (which I haven’t seen since….Jr Hight School…maybe). And the next bit is to find an excerise program that I might actually stick with. Not very likely as I’m kind of really bad about excerising with anyone looking so it could be a challenge to find the time. Unless it is a program that is not overyly excerise like. ~thinking~

I’ll figure it out…just a little time…..
