  • It was one of those "I wonder what this will do" things. It went better than the garlic one

    Ok, I think my body has had it with the fasting thing. It's getting pissy now. So- still want to have at least one juice a day, but there will also be chewable food. Specifically, fats and proteins. I almost went to the grocery store, which would have resulted in chips along with whatever meat product I got, but the hunger was held at bay with some tuna and tea. Not brilliant, but healthier than what I would have gotten.

    • After feeling like hell (mentally) and therefore eating like shit for a couple of days, I really expected to be back up to that damn 255, but I weighed in at 250# this morning. Sweet. Also, I'm back on the real holes for this belt. (The bigger ones were punched at Thanksgiving when I bought pants that fit which showed my that the belt was too small, too.) Since today confirmed that the mental issue was me being a silly female, there might even be a few more pounds coming off, and I'll be able to mind my eating for a while before it goes off track again.

          • I'm off track. And back up to 255.

            The following rant is totally not about the PB, but I need to say it somewhere:

            God- reading about feminism and abusive circumstances everywhere is making my head hurt! And my soul hurt! Can't I go back to my happy little made-up world where shit like this doesn't happen and doesn't matter? Where Xander is confused and a bit of a turd, but really pretty harmless? Where nice guys are nice guys, not Nice Guys that are just trying to get one over on you? I don't LIKE having to deconstruct everything I see and watch and read for the social commentary and how it portrays women. (For anyone who has read Tess of the d'Urbervilles- Screw you Angel Clare. Screw you. And he's supposed to be the good guy.)

            I read The Feminist and the Cowboy for help with the power dynamics in a world touched by reality. Oh my god- with the way she describes the men that she found "acceptable" during her "feminist" days, no wonder she was bored! They bored me just reading about them! But in a world where Men Are Bad, then finding safe (read, spineless) males is important. The backlash being that she ended up with a guy that basically was everything she was warned against (and expected a manly man to be) because she wanted something different. She got it, all right.

            So these are our choices, huh? Big and bad and bad for us or spineless and sweet and about as exciting as a wet noodle. Dear god. Shoot me now.

            I haven't finished Tess, yet, but at this point, I honestly like Alex better than Angel. He's an asshole and a user, but at least he's up front about it. Angel is all sorts of holier-than-thou, yet engages in the behavior he shuns Tess for. Way to set the bar high for men, there, Hardy. On the other hand, Ana being a fan of Tess does help explain how she sets her criteria for men. As for Tess herself, I can't help but compare her to Lizzy from Pride and Prejudice. Is it a class thing that makes them so different? Or a male vs female author thing? I was about to say I couldn't think of any of Austin's females that are that innocent to the point of idiocy- but then I remembered Kitty and Lydia. And I suppose if Lizzy hadn't been a virgin, Mr. Darcy would have rejected her as well.

            Get out of my head, thoughts!!!! *headdesk* I don't want you any more!

            • I was (obviously) having mental issues, so I finally got around to calling a local horse rescue to see if they needed volunteers. Apparently not until March. Grmph. But, I did make the contact, so they'll call me when it's time.

              • Aw, I hope I did not play too much of a part in making you feel crummy (not sure if you found Jenny Trout before or after I talked about it? I forget how specific I was). I think the research you are doing is really interesting and I can't wait to reach what you come up with, but don't get lost in it! Come up for air frequently! Watch clips of the Muppets on Youtube!

                  It's not your fault. I got Jenny's blog from Panda's journal- I want to say Winencandy?- for the 50-shades review. I was just having a rough time assimilating is all. Being very angry with Thomas Hardy doesn't help I do hope it turns out well. So far it's mostly just dirty

                  • NPH is so cool.

                    That's all I've got right now.

                      • Ok, I think the brain kablooie was 10% hormones and 90% that I need to stab Thomas Hardy. I still haven't finished the book, but at this point Tess and both of her men have pissed me off, so I figure stabbing the author takes care of the lot of them.

                        End of winter to early spring is always the worst for me. The vitamin D I (hopefully) stocked up on during the summer is gone, and spring proper ain't here yet. So for the moment, I'll just grit my teeth and wait. This spring couldn't be worse than last spring, and hopefully it will be better. When it comes to food and exercise, I'll do what I can when I can, but my expectations will stay low and I will accept that. Fixing shit can wait until a season when it has a chance in hell of working.

                        On the up side, I did write today, and I plan on getting my eyebrows did and my hair trimmed this weekend. It always helps me feel better if I look more like a girl than a wookie My feet are also starting to itch to dance again, so if this keeps up until Wednesday, I might actually make it over to the free dance lessons I found.

                        • I made it through season 1 of Buffy and season 2 is already a huge improvement. I felt like there were a lot of correlations in Buffy/Angel's relationship as potential inspiration for Bella/Edward in the Twilight series. Curious (if you've read that series [[gag]]) what you think. Obviously not a DIRECT inspiration, since Bella is a blob and Buffy has some (cheesy) spine, but inspiration nonetheless.

                            • Oh- anybody else read "How do I . . . aghm . . . get bigger" and think, "Dude, that's not what the PB is for."
