Lost three pounds!

I lost three pounds this past week because I walked three times around a park for a thing. I was in garb and sprayed myself a lot with anti-sun lotion spray and still managed to get burned. I was a crispy critter spliced with being cooked like eggs and bacon. I think my brain is still over done. I want bacon now…

I also learned that day that I bought one fairground food and it was the cinnamon and sugar covered almonds. I only had eight almonds and my sugar sky rocketed, but thanks to all that walking it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. But, now I have to give up my nuts at fair now…  TT__TT

I lost my track of thought.

…Bacon.

Th bacon calls to me. Oh yeah the sun tried to kill me, but I still have a pulse. My brain might have taken a hit though.

I’m seriously considering getting myself some bacon after work today. Because bacon is awesome and we should make a bacon based religion because that would be cool.

HUZZAH!

 

I’m so tired.

 

 

 

 

And this time…

I’m starting another diet run today. I also feel like I keep repeating myself, but then I keep telling myself at least I never completely quit. Who cares if I restart things a million times? Reinventing yourself every once in awhile is a good thing.

Tragedy in Las Vegas…

My heart goes out to friends and family who either lost their life or knows someone who lost their life. This is beyond tragedy and is literally incomprehensible. My mind cannot wrap around it. I am safe and I have been making texts and stuff to make sure others are okay. The massive shooting…this act of violence…why is there so much violence in the world?

Other things have happened in my personal life and now this happens. It’s as if 2017 is really piling it on thick. I pray all the victims and survivors find peace and blessed be to all.

Gaming Back log and overwhelmed

As newer games come out that I am interested in and/or eager to play my back log becomes bigger and bigger. Some games I quit because I either got frustrated, bored, or sensory overload by the other shiny games. When you think you’ve hit your limit another new shiny game comes out. I have also a collecting habit. If I have the first part or two parts and another sequel or prequel comes out then I buy it even if I haven’t finished any of the other games. This is also true with my books. Because it’s a set and they are a family and must be together. lolz XD

Anyway, I think I am going to start slowing down and also put my foot down and only buy games from series that I enjoy and know from now on. Also, I will not buy the next game in a string of games if I haven’t finished the first one or first few. I need to pick a game and stick with it? I also want to cut my gaming time down to have time to do other hobbies in my free time and possibly get other stuff done.

I started back at the gym last week so yay for me! ^^;

Also, the changed meds the doctor prescribed kinda made me sick so I went back to taking that one pill once a day after I eat.

I want to drop fifteen pounds before the ren fair that is coming up. Wish me luck!

 

New FitBit…sort of.

A friend from work gave me her old FitBit Charge HR, while mine is just a Charge and also starting to fall apart. The only new thing the Charge HR does is track heart beat. That’s the only difference between the two. I can fully get back into the swing of things with this new FitBit. I all ready set it up to the app on my phone and I am good to go. The only thing is that it fits snugly around my wrist. I’m assuming if I lose more weight it will start to fit better yes?

I am feeling under the weather this week and also the weather has been crummy this past week. There has been random thunderstorms and no one knows how to drive in a desert that never sees rain that they do not know what do do when it happens or how to identify it. I will be starting up back at the gym on either Monday or Tuesday with a co-worker because she decided to change her workout time to the afternoon in stead of in the mornings before work. Hopefully I can acclimate to my routine again and hopefully get used to doing weights.

New Book! ^^

The Tower of Dawn, by Sarah J. Maas just came out last night! As I looked through it I thought it was going to be a novella, but it’s around 600 pages and around 61 chapters long! This is a novel and probably really should be considered the fifth book in the series. However, it is about Chaol and the events take place during the timeline in the last book side by side, but now Chaol is the protagonist and I am a bit excited about this. I’m not a Chaol fan, I like the character so it shouldn’t be difficult to read through this book and it should be able to hold me over until the final volume is released in May.

Squee! New book!

 

 

That is all…

Long chapters drive me crazy

The third book in the fallen series called, Passion, by Lauren Kate is a little better so far than her previous installments in the series. But, my biggest gripe since the first book is that her chapter are so FREAKING long! I don’t expect them to be super short, but that’s what makes me read and continue on more if I see I am getting somewhere and making progress in my reading by knocking down chapter after chapter. If I am reading and I have to stop somewhere because I  have somewhere to be or go do something, or if I am reading before bed and I don’t want to be stuck right in the middle of something I hate that. It drives me nuts and I can’t be the only one.

This third installment is more interesting this time because…well without spoiling anything let’s just say a lot of past lives are going to be explored. This means more traveling and more interesting events. Let’s keep it that way and not stretch story scenes for too long. It’s just as bad as author’s describing every little detail to the last grain of dust. If your the type of reader that loves that kind of writing in a book then more power to you, but that’s just not my cup of tea.

I love the feel and look of each slip cover for each novel. I have the whole Fallen series because I have a collecting problem. So if I have part one and I haven’t read (or in the case of video games…played it/finished it) I’ll go buy the next installment(s). It’s part of the series so why not?

My thoughts on the characters of the series is that Daniel can be an asshole and you do get pissed at him, but towards the end of book two you see and can feel why he was doing the things he did. In the beginning of Book three this becomes more apparent and you do feel for the guy. Luce on the other hand I felt was just a really dumb love struck teen in the first novel, but towards the middle of the second novel she then starts to have doubts about her relationship to Daniel. I think she’s dumb for staying with a guy that lies, keeps things from her, and other things. Yes, this is for a reason, but when you are with someone you keep them in the loop so they understand what’s going on and their partners actions. It’s just common sense. What is it some sense of superiority alpha male bull shit that he can’t tell her the truth? Maybe there is a bigger picture and another reason for this and I just haven’t gotten to it yet.

More developments on this later as I read further on for book three…

Books and Reading

Has anyone ever read and/or enjoyed the Chicken Noodle Soup books? I have a few of them that I can count on my hand. Right now I currently picked up off my book shelf is “Chicken Noodle Soup for the Ocean Lover’s Soul” and I am enjoying it more than the other ones I have bought. I feel that the ocean can teach us a lot of things and that it is wise and ancient. These stories fit right in with my love for the ocean and its creatures.

I’ve also been reading “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed on my phone through the kindle app. I feel like with her writing I am on the PCT right along with her. Maybe while doing Laundry on Sundays I should just pretend I’m at a Laundry mat and I have to spend all day out there and the only comfort is reading. Then maybe I can get more reading done. You know, tune out the noise of everything and meditate and relax. It’s not like it’s really noisy where I live, but it’s hard to get into that peaceful meditative state. I should practice that more so I can calm my mind and my soul. If it’s not outside noise then it’s too noisy in my head. No one worry I don’t hear voices or anything like that. My brain is always active especially when my anxiety is high or if I am stressing or both.

Everyone should try practicing meditation and take twenty minutes out of their day to have some me time.

Healing and quick update

My leg is healing nicely and it is also starting to itch a bit today. My mom says that means it’s healing. I should head to the gym tomorrow because the wound shouldn’t open up or anything. I’ll check the bandage tomorrow after I’ve changed it.

I’ve also updated Midnight Raven tab, Gamer 4 Life tab, and possibly others so check it out. 🙂

I’ve also started writing more and hopefully getting to my art more. I have to bake cookies after work today for a thing on Wednesday. They will be Mario star cookies. ^^;

I had eggs for breakfast this morning and I want so many things and make it happen, but then things happen and then it’s just all over the place. I think I will have liquid for lunch and dinner today.

And another thing happened…

If I was not frustrated enough…

Last night my oldest cat Fluffy jumped on me my while I had my legs up on a foot rest. She normally does this and wants me to pet her for ten to fifteen minutes then she walks back down my legs and sleeps between or on my feet on the foot rest. With that being said, this time, however, when she walked down my legs to the foot rest one of her legs slipped. One of her claws clawed deep into the lower part of my right calf close to the ankle, but not quite. I freaked out and it was bleeding profusely. I made it to my tub to get it cleaned with the shower head and dabbed rubbing alcohol on it and also poured it onto the wound. I wanted peroxide, but I found out later it was a good thing I could not find it in my house because it will kill the good bacteria as well as the bad. I bandaged it and even showered with it this morning. I had someone who is a nurse look at it today. I got clean bandages and alcohol wipes to clean it again and bandage it again because it was bleeding again through out the day I guess or it happened after I had my shower with it on. I limp a little bit cause it hurts a little bit, but it hurt like a mofo last night when I put that rubbing alcohol on it when it was fresh. And now I can not go to the gym or exercise for awhile until this heals.

My cats are out to get me and sabotage me…
