  • I don't feel uncomfortable around heavier people, usually, but being the only person in the pool in a bikini kinda unnerved me a little, like I was showing off. When I realized they didn't visibly give a damn, the anxiety went away.

      • I feel a little weird at the pool because I'm smaller than virtually everyone and people comment on that - as in "Oh, you don't mind walking around in your suit, you're so thin." I am NOT thin. I am, however, a great deal thinner than everyone else. But it makes me a little self-conscious that people are in fact looking at me...in my swimsuit. But I get over it. I usually say something like, "I'm here to swim, I don't look at others or think about them looking at me." I hope it doesn't sound sanctimonious or something, but it's kind of awkward sometimes.

        • I've gotten more appreciative glances than comments. I did have one woman stop me as I leaving the deadmill area Tuesday and give me one of the best compliments I've gotten in a long time: "You're gorgeous! You look just like the goal I have in my head. Can I have a photo for the fridge?" I declined the photo but thanked her for the compliment. It was definitely a head spinner to think my work in progress is someone else's goal. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that.
          Had some gummy bear Wednesday and a brownie today. I'm getting the air hunger from too much sugar.
          Went and played with the guys tonight. Not much movement, but I got the hang out with the Dilberts (Officemate and Tractor) and SWG and learn a new, albeit useless, skill: Rock Band bass guitar.

          • NK if you ever get a chance to take a Cardio Kick class. Do it. It is kickboxing to music. Great for letting out aggression.

            • Shampooed the (stained to hell) carpet by the back door and most of the living room yesterday. Dinner was at a steak house: prime rib, caesar salad sans cretins, cheesy bacon fries, a sweet potato with butter and cinnamon, peanuts, and 3/4 of a roll. Dessert was chocolate, coffee, and cookies and cream froyo with crushed oreos, berries, caramel, and choco syrup on top.
              Went to the Y today and discovered they don't have the pool on Sundays. I walk 4.5 miles on the deadmill and elliptical instead. I lasted 5 minuted in a Zumba class before affirming that I'm just not coordinated enough for that. Came home, soaked in the tub for a while, and had 3 fluffy eggs with provolone for lunch. (Fluffy eggs are kinda like a cross between fried eggs and an omelet. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a 6" cast iron pan. Crack 3 eggs into the pan, lay pieces of provolone across the top. Wait until the eggs are half cooked through to the top and flip the egg mass. Wait another minute and plate.)

              • Feeling almost guilty that I'm not getting sick. The gunk has taken 3/4 of the office out for at least a couple days, and that's just this last round. Everyone else is feverish or feeling bad and I'm just toodling right along.

                • I gave my mom the makings for KE tea yesterday. I hope it helps her. She said she had a lot of pressure in her head, like if you pressed on it, everything about her head felt achy and sore and sensitive. I know that feeling and I think KE would have helped. She wasn't congested, but I found it made me feel better even when I wasn't, last week. Damn, I wish I'd brought some to work. It would make a good hangover recovery tea, I think.

                  • I haven't tried it for that, but it wouldn't surprise me if it did work. Especially if you drank it while eating something salty, protein-y, and potassiumed, like a handful of salted nuts.

                    • Lunch was that same salad I always get on Mondays. I'm getting kinda tired of McAlister's, especially since their selection of salads is limited, especially when you remove the inedible ones.

                        I feel the same way...I surely do not want to be sick, but everyone else is and it is strange to feel great and not be sharing in their misery. Now I must go and make some KE tea.

                        • Went to the aerobics class again and sat in the hot tub again. Got into a convo with the instructor about home birthing and water birthing and such. It was really interesting.
                          Had leftover jambalaya and 3/4 of a pomegranate for dinner.

                          • Watching Food Hospital on Cooking Channel and wanting to chuck stuff at the screen. Demonizing saturated fat and whole fat dairy because of the hormones (what the hell happened to grass fed?), promoting soy (because that estrogen is better than the estrogen in the milk; again, there's a difference), gave teh high insulin patient beans and grains (wtf?)...
                            Yeah, wanting to chuck shit at the tv.

                              Yup, feel the same way when seeing a similar TV-show here in Belgium. I just don't watch it anymore, better for my cortisol levels .

                              • I have a bad case of rectal blindness (can't see my ass going into work.) Part of it is wanting a lot more sleep, most of it is feeling gypped because I haven't gotten sick enough to take any time off. (I've made up the time for every minute and then some that I have been out of the office thanks to my wisdom tooth and Friday before last.)
