In like a lion ๐Ÿฆ

March is arriving like a lion. RAAWWRRR!!!

Life is going well. I am almost scared to say that though. My new year resolutions of ignoring unhappy people & getting rid of time wasters is working out super. I have been hanging around positive people & focusing on my needs. I am actually done playing cornhole for now which is a little weird after 4 years every week, but it was time to try some new stuff. You would think it would free up 2 of my evenings, but it really doesn’t cause I am trying to get ready for upcoming 10Ks so I am putting in more time walking. I do get home earlier though which is a nice trade off.

I am playing in 2 kickball leagues which is fun! The Wednesday night crew is fun & we actually have hung out outside of kickball so meeting more people is great. We are getting ready to end the season, but most of us will be returning next season. Friday night kickball just started & will be a good time. The bonus part–Joe the creeper couldn’t fill his team so they aren’t playing this season! And since I am not playing Tuesday cornholeย right nowย that means I NO LONGER HAVE TO SEE HIM!!!! Isn’t that amazing??? That’s how it frigging should have been 2 years ago!!! Life is so good. lol

Work has been ok. It is more enjoyable since I am doing just my job duties. I feel less stress & am much more caught up. An opening in another department did come up in February & yesterday I applied. I don’t know where it will go or if anything will even come of it, but at least I did it! The job closes on March 9th so it will be a bit before I hear anything either way.

My diet is good–I hit 12 pounds lost this morning! I have been sticking to my food plan except for the alcohol (lol I know). I might try to decrease it a little more to like 1000 calories a day & see what happens. Just under 4 weeks left in the gym challenge so I am motivated! I feel stronger & have really been putting in effort at the gym. A few people who haven’t seen me lately said my shape is changing & I am looking thinner so there is some progress! I was pleased last month also to become a Just Strong ambassador. They are a fitness clothing company in the UK that promotes & encourages women. So not only is it fun clothes to wear around, but I love the message ofย girl powerย being spread! If you decide you want to order I can give my discount code! http://www.juststrongclothing.com

So all in all I LOVE that March is roaring in!!! Feel the power! Know your value! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงกโค๏ธ

On track now!

I decided January was pretty much just me getting ready for 2018 to start February 1st. So I’m a little delayed ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Being sick wiped me out for several weeks and I finally started feeling better last week. But it gave me time to think and decide on a plan of attack moving forward.

My diet has to change. The weight has to go. 40 is coming & I refuse to start it like this! In January I upped my gym member ship to 3 days a week which was a good start, but my food intake is wildly out of control. ๐Ÿ˜ญ So starting this week I am having pre-made meals delivered to home. The fat kid can’t be in charge cause obviously I have no control! I’m on day 3 of reduced calories and better eating…no one has died. Honestly though I feel better. And I’m not hungry. Amazing what properly planned meals can do and it makes it very simple which is also nice.

The Wednesday night kickball is going well. The team I was put on is really fun & we have a good time playing. It’s nice to meet a whole new set of people. The cornhole on Tuesday ended with us winning the finals!!! And we eliminated Joe on the way to the end which was an added bonus to the night. YAY!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ† Not sure if we’ll play next season & have a month off so in the mean time I’m attending track workouts with my gym group on Tuesday nights. Gotta get those steps in!

Work is going ok. I’ve had some duties taken from me recently which I got upset about originally, but upon further thought it was stuff that wasn’t my job to do & now I’m freed up to do my actual job. It’s really improved the stress level for me having things simplified. Now my coworker is freaking out with all the added duties she has but hey…it wasn’t my choice. Hearing how cranky or unhappy she is makes me realize how bad I probably sounded. Glad it’s not me anymore!

Mom was just down here to celebrate her birthday. We went to Disney for a few days & had a really good time! Did the Aloha dinner and also did a tour at Magic Kingdom (take the Keys to the Kingdom tour–amazing!!). Our relationship has really improved. I’m hoping my parents will be back to visit again in the next few months. Dad is having knee replacement next week ๐Ÿคž

It’s been a busy week so I’m looking forward to the weekend!

on the upswing

Unfortunately I came down with the plague that is going around last week. I would like to thank all the asshole customers who came into our work sick & coughing on us thinking it was funny. Really it’s not. I made it to work Friday morning to do our 1st (un)organized walk before work, but then I left shortly after. Most of my department got wiped out as well & called in sick.

Saturday I had plans with friends I’ve been waiting 2 weeks for so I was determined to feel better. I medicated myself (I actually did feel better too) & off we went for the day. But it was too much cause that night I got back in bed & didn’t leave it for 2 days. I haven’t been sick like throwing up (that would be a good sick to have!), but just head cold & sinus & no energy. Others have it much worse. I’ve heard it can take some weeks to fully recover, but I am trying to keep myself somewhat on schedule. Too much time off & I fear I will never catch up! Monday was a holiday from work, but a total waste since I spent it in bed.

Tuesday I went to work, but only half our department showed up so we were all moving pretty slow. lol After work I stopped by the gym & spent my “class” just walking on the treadmill. Luckily my trainer was really cool about my lack of participation. lol I wanted to do something, but no way did I have any energy to really work out! I do need to start getting ready for my upcoming 10K (March 3rd!) even if I am just walking so I have to get more steps in. I then had cornhole which was pretty good overall. We won the 1st game & then had to play Joe’s team. Which we started out losing, but then won the next 2 rounds so YAY US!!! Not gonna lie–whooping on him a little did make me feel better. hahaha!! Next week is the playoffs & then I’m not sure what’s happening. I don’t know if my partner will want to play another season although I have had a good time playing with her.

Today is going pretty well. Feeling a bit better than yesterday so continuing on the upswing. I have my 1st kickball game with the new team tonight, but not until 9:30!! EEK! And the temps are supposed to drop into the 30’s tonight so I am going to freeze! lol Time to find all the layers I had on a few weeks ago.

Fitting it all in

Life has been busy. This time of year always seems to be. Lots going on which is great, but I’m trying not to over do it either. 

I worked my side job last weekend. Which it had been raining on off for like 2 weeks. That’s getting old! Will got back from his work trip & we had a great dinner Sunday night (date #2). It was a really nice way to wrap up the weekend.

Monday I played cornhole, but Tuesday it got rained out. Impromptu dinner with friends which I invited Will also. I figured he’s seen me dressed up nice twice so this was casual jeans stuffing down wings. ๐Ÿคฃ He wasn’t fazed at all which was nice to see. I am enjoying hanging out & slowly getting to know him. He went out of town again for a few days & now his mom is here visiting until next week. I told him if he needs a break he knows how to find me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had therapy last week. I do enjoy meeting with her. I know I’ve made a lot of improvements since last summer, but sometimes all I see is that hot mess still. She keeps it in perspective & we talk out things. Between the gym & a bday party I had a FULL week! Definitely going low key this weekend. 

Last night had a concert with the girls which was a blast!! Then we headed next door to the casino for a bit. I don’t play but it’s fun to hang & watch. Today I’ve been running errands which FL summer had kicked in. It’s hot! I really wish I could get some beach time. Perhaps tomorrow? I sent my dad his Father’s Day stuff this week so I’ll give him a call.

I leave next Monday for Canada for 2 weeks so I’ve been getting things organized for that. I’m trying not to leave it til the last minute to get ready, but you know in some way it always ends up that way. Even work I’ve been trying to get ready so it’s not a complete mess this week or when I return.

Tonight is a life celebration for a friend’s family member. But it’s at a bar & then the beach for sunset. Not sure what to expect. Maybe the bar is a good idea?

Hump day ho hums

Blah the rain. Yes we needed it. Yay we are ok longer a high fire risk. The grass is green & growing. But come on…since last Thursday night it’s been on/off & starting Monday pretty much all day rain. โ˜”๏ธ So over it. I miss the sun. I miss my activities. I would like to not be wearing my raincoat all the time. ๐Ÿ™„

Monday started out with me driving to work & a low tire pressure light going on. On the tire I just replaced 6 weeks ago. Work was a bit of a shit show cause apparently people didn’t do things while I was gone which made meeting the deadlines that day insane. I left work & hauled ass to the car dealership so they could look at the tire. Turns out another nail (WTF??!!) and the computer needs to be adjusted cause it was the other side that was flat (not the side it was saying). Again wtf??? Thank goodness again for that extra tire warranty cause that’s another $400 I didn’t have to shell out when they ordered the tire. ๐Ÿ™ I then headed to the gym where my face & jaw was starting to hurt so much I half assed it just get it done. I apologized to my awesome trainer…she knows when I’m not right & isn’t a jerk about it. I had taken a pain pill at work early, but I can’t drive on them so couldn’t take another. Got home, made dinner & went to bed! ๐Ÿ‘Š

Tuesday more rain. More of the same work crap (still catching up). But changed my dinner plans when cornhole cancelled! My favorite local event is going on…restaurants offer fixed menus for a low price for 2 weeks. Usually these are upscale or places I never go so trying to get to a few new ones again this year. Except my frigging tooth pain is really putting a damper on things!! Nevertheless I was determined last night to eat & it was fabulous. Had a good time catching up with my gf & her bf. One of my favorite stores is having their semi annual sale so I stopped there & can you believe I found exactly what I have been looking for?? On sale??!! That never happens so it made for a much improved day!! And I got a cute new dress for peanuts at the thrift store on lunch break. Day improving. ๐Ÿ‘

Today again it’s raining. Yeah shocker. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m hitting the gym after work & then home. I need an early night to catch up. My tooth is still hurting & it’s been a week so I’m thinking there is something else wrong? I have a follow up dental appointment tomorrow.

Good news…William & I have continued to stay in touch. He’s back in Seattle, but coming home Sunday so we’re doing dinner that night. Date #2!! I’m trying not to be too excited or get ahead, but I am looking forward to seeing him & spending actual time together. It’s been almost a month we’ve been “talking” yet have only met that one time. Which is really weird for me (I’ve never done anything like this before) although I like it! How crazy is that? Things are moving slow which is good right now cause I have a lot of my own stuff going on. Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž 

Puh-lease

When your ex shows up at cornhole with (I guess) his new GF (they kept making out & grabbing each other so one can only assume which ewww you’re almost 50 & she definitely looks it!) of maybe a few weeks. 

1–thanks for showing everyone what a douchebag you really are without me having to say a peep. ๐Ÿ˜† 2–for again confirming I’m the best you’ll ever have. To everyone. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Seriously. The consensus was “what a downgrade”. I just sat back & enjoyed the spectacle cause that’s what it really was. I mean who really has to try that hard? So ridiculous. ๐Ÿ™„

Yup that is the latest on POS. Who’s name is Joe. Forget anonymous. The innocent have nothing to hide & the shitty need to be outted. So moving forward no more changing of names here! I wish I could say it’s the last of Joe too but he apparently likes to creep me. After I walked away in October (cash in hand mind you!) there was no more contact. I went on living my life. Apparently my life was looking too good though cause he not only unfriended me on Facebook but also blocked me on Thanksgiving. Yup, I’m that awesome. ๐Ÿ‘ Fast forward to mid-December & my group ran into his group out on the town for a city festival. Let me be clear…I have awesome friends who have stood by me despite my dumb choices but they were THRILLED that Joe was gone cause they hated how he treated me & he’s a douche. Especially among my guy friends it turns out he was very hated (I had no idea guys were that judgemental of other guys). Joe ran away (such big balls he’s got), but some others in his group stopped to chat with my group & me. In fact DD1 was there & she gave me a hug & all chatty. Apparently her dad hadn’t yet told her I was evil & to be shunned. Moving on to end of January I was on a blind date set up (which was going so bad already) when Joe & DD1 walked by. I mean he sprinted so fast it took me a minute to register (I was ready when they left with a big smile & so sweet “oh hi there how are you?”). I know he had contacted my big brother a few times about kickball but my bro said he’ll never play on our team again (phew).

So fast forward to cornhole Tuesday night I wasn’t super surprised he was there. My bro started up a new league so Joe knew I’d be there. Duh. Did I mention after the Facebook blocking he then started friending some of the friends and circle I hang out with? Like how fucked up is that? We laughed but go find your own friends. I did. You were my plus 1 & now you’re not. I don’t contact or hang out with any of the people he’s “friends” with. I mean they are such shitty shallow people I have no idea why I wouldn’t want them as my friends. Plus they are like 20 years younger than him (or more!). I guess by finding an older lady to date now he’s no longer the oldest looking person in pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‚

My bro kept checking on me asking how I was. But really I was fine. When you step back & really see a situation you realize how stupid it all was. I should have been gone long before but apparently I had to learn my lessons the hard way. Joe hanging all over this lady really had no effect on me. I wasn’t upset or bothered. I kept playing & hanging out & having a good time. There’s a lot of new people & 1 guy even came up at the end to chat a little. It was a really good time & I’m looking forward to next week.

Got the Monday’s?

I’m really trying not to have the blahs today but it’s raining again and that just sucks! Lol.

The weekend was good. Sunday was the baseball fundraiser and cornhole tournament. We did pretty good considering we thought we’d be knocked out after the 1st game but we played 4 rounds! There were like 40 teams which I’ve never done anything like that so it was all new. Good times! Unfortunately no single baseball dads (or any for that matter) hanging around so no luck in the man department. Haha! Still it was a really good day with friends.

Tonight starts the new season of cornhole with 18 teams playing. That’s just crazy! It should hopefully be a good time and I’m curious who all the new people are. Unfortunately if this rain doesn’t go away I’m sure it will be cancelled. Boo!!

Tinder has been pretty active for me. In fact I sort of stopped swiping just so I could catch up and weed thru who’s been messaging me for any real contenders. FF and I are still texting. He’s out of town at a sports function with his kids so sort of laying low there. Hopefully when he gets back we can meet. I don’t want to text somebody I don’t know without meeting for too long you know?? Another guy who wanted dinner turns out now to be too busy working and just wants FWB. I was like thanks for being upfront and see ya. I’m not really looking to hook up with a bunch of randoms. And like I’m going to even give it up without getting any dinner??!! Please lol
