seven somethings

  1. 18 days until my beach vacation. Not that I’m counting or anything. 
  2. I started taking a fish oil supplement yesterday.  It’s a natural anti-inflammatory, and studies have shown it to be effective in managing inflammation related to autoimmune conditions. I figure it can’t hurt. There are lots of benefits, and I made sure I got the good kind (no mercury and other crap). I haven’t taken Methotrexate in 25 days and so far I am flare free. (*knocks on wood*) I am still taking Celebrex, which I’m sure is helping a bit.
  3. I have been Tamoxifen free for 18 days. I can tell the estrogen is starting to do its thing again.  I’m more emotional (how is that even possible?). I’m having minor breakouts. But overall having estrogen back is fucking awesome. It’s going to be hard to start up again in August. I have a lot of very serious consideration to give this issue.
  4. This was a good weekend, but it went by way too quickly. I’m grateful that this is going to be a short work week. I’m just not feeling it lately. 
  5. I have eaten way too many cupcakes this weekend. I have to throw the rest of them out tomorrow. I cannot be trusted around baked goods.  The problem is that I’m starving and want to eat fucking everything.  Estrogen, is that you? 
  6. Everything hurts. Jillian Michaels isn’t playing around. 
  7. Is it bedtime yet?

this is how we do it

Yesterday morning I completed day 1 of Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred


So at least I know it works, right? How will I survive 30 days of this? (talknboutluvdancnboutarktecture warned me it was no joke. She was correct.)

None of this stopped me from eating a cupcake for breakfast. Priorities.

sleepy sunday seven

  1. I went to the mall last night, so I decided to try to find some shorts. I don’t ever wear shorts, and now I remember why. It’s difficult to find cute, age appropriate shorts. There are two types of shorts as far as I can tell: frumpy as fuck old lady *or* oh hi my ass is hanging out. So I bought three casual dresses instead at H&M. Fuck it. (Of course, there aren’t many good clothing stores at the Chesterfield mall, so maybe that was the problem.) 
  2. The OITNB season 2 binge watch has commenced. 
  3. I need to figure out what I want to read next. I’m in a bit of a rut right now.
  4. I should really be at the gym right now, but I’m on the couch watching Netflix instead. #noregrets
  5. And I think wine needs to happen.
  6. This was a great weekend, but I haven’t slept in my own bed since Wednesday night, so I’m kind of looking forward to doing so tonight.
  7. I cannot wait to pick Jackson up from day camp tomorrow afternoon. I miss him so much.
