    I like to share the good stuff today I am grateful for home. I had a family party last night and, well there were some cocktails involved, and I stayed the night. My point being that there is no better feeling than coming home after being gone for a night. My couch, my sweatpants, my TV, with my football on it I am missing my kitty very much today, but I am also very grateful and very happy that I have a place to call home.

      Today I'm grateful for my friends. New and old, near and far, online and in person. My life would have no joy without them.

        Mmm... I tried the omelette muffins recipe I found on here, yum! Having a lot of the stress at the moment and haven't been able to eat much, but those were great! Still waiting on the start date of my new job! I don't think they changed their minds about me, but I would've thought I'd know by now. I went in and filled out my tax papers, took my drug test, now just waiting. I am being pretty impatient, but I can't seem to be able to help it. My whole body is tense...

          Well for dinner I made some delicious spaghetti sauce... sans noodles of course! I also made some asparagus then realized I am out of butter. I don't like it without butter and salt. I'll won't be eating here at all tomorrow, so I hope it's still good on Thursday. And I hope I remember to get butter. I have so much on my mind lately that I keep forgetting toothpaste! Lol, I squeezed out the last tiny but this morning. I was about to go to the store, but decided to completely clean out the bathroom cubbard instead, and luckily found a tube! Yes! Trip to the store averted for another day! I forgot to do my I am grateful for thing today. The one I put on Facebook was a joke... sort of. I am grateful for my sick twisted teenage boy mind. I can't hear the words unit, duty, or nut without doing a Bevis-like laugh and I love that about myself. Lol... it's kind of a lane thing to be thankful for, but I am. Oh... I found out 100 % for sure that I have the new job!! There is some debate on what my start date will be, I am demanding two weeks time to wrap things up with my current employer, they are happy to give it to me... the temp agency I am going through is trying to get me to start in less than a week. Not happening, I just can't do that to my boss. Luckily I know someone at the company and they are helping me work it out.

            Not sure how much I will be journaling anymore. It's starting to feel a little self involved. Not to say that is actually is, but I've been having a little trouble getting out of my own head lately and I don't think this is helping me. I am trying to take some focus off of myself and put it elsewhere. Still going to be primal, that's for life! Still going to post about the huge things, but I just can't listen to myself drone on about myself anymore. It's hurting me, probably my relationships and friendships too. I'm not sure what is going to make me "better", but talking about myself isn't it. I'm going to try to do some volunteer work, get more involved in my community. I've been healing my body, it's time to heal my soul.

              I hear you. It can be draining to keep going on about yourself - I think this works best to celebrate the successes and when needed seek advice from the rest who have gone before us. Happy trails Jena!

                Wow... had to post something on here about my "cheat" day. It has been a really really long time since I have had one and I did Monday. At work I had 4 pieces of peanut butter fudge. Then at my other job's Xmas party that night I had nachos, beans, chocolate eclair things, candy, etc... I haven't been right since... just another reminder that it just isn't worth it. A small treat once in a while, fine, but all that flour, corn, and sugar effed me up! It's easy to forget how bad I used to feel all the time!

                        Happy Xmas everyone! Man... I have gotten really off track over the last couple of weeks! And my tummy has been paying the price. After dinner tomorrow I'm back at it. I'm going back to being super strict! Meat, veggies, and the occasional dairy and fruit! I haven't been eating bread or pasta, but I have I indulged in way too many sweet treats, potatoes, and too much white rice. Less the sweets these are things I allow myself on a weekly basis, but I think I have to get back to basics for a while! Oh... and the cocktails.... waaaay too many holiday party cocktails lately! Not to mention I'm adjusting to a sedentary job that leaves me with brain fog. Time to start working out too!

                            Just started reading Primal Connection. I think the parts about getting rid of negative self talk and living in the moment are exactly what I need to hear right now. I have been pretty lax about being primal lately. Working two jobs, babysitting, dating, and trying to have a social life have taken their toll. I haven't been too bad, but I have looked the other way when it comes to vegetable oils, light breading on some foods, and have been eating waaaay too much rice and potatoes! I need to get back to just meat, veggies, and eggs, with a little fruit. And I really have to start taking my lunch to work... or just skip eating on my lunch. Luckily I haven't gained any weight back, I don't think, but I certainly will if I keep this up. Not to mention that I still want to lose a lot more. Oh... and exercise has been pretty non-existent Time to do something!
