Day 1

So today I am starting a new diet.  It’s the Dukan, but I am doing it a little differently since after the attack phase I really don’t think I can sustain the every other all protein days for a long period of time. We will see how big a difference it makes.  If you are interested in the diet just google it, it’s all over the web these days.

I need a kick-start, and something stricter than WW.  At this point being limited I think will keep me on track much better. We will see.

Debating doing year 2 of my Yoga Teacher Training since lately my teacher has been a bit rajastic. He is annoying me.  I have time to decide.

I haven’t heard from C since her birthday.  She never responded to my 2nd e-mail asking when she was free. Holidays are coming up fast and I am not sure whats in her head. I think if I don’t hear from her by Friday I will e-mail her again.  Thats all I can do. I am not going to beg.

For breakfast I had 2 hard boiled eggs and some lean ham.  :/

10 Year Blogaversay

I missed my 10 year blogaversary by a few days.  Blogging is something I have wanted to be more regular at, a place to chronicle my days and life. Perhaps some memories too. But I have not been able to find the discipline or creativity to get there. I am not sure why. Maybe I am just afraid, maybe I don’t want to remember and don’t want to journal the reality of what my life is.

Don’t get me wrong, my life isn’t that bad. I have had my share of sadness and pain, but right now things are ok.  They could be better, but I can do that if I want to badly enough, make it better. Sometimes that’s scary too. Somedays I want to stay in bed, not sure why. Maybe dpression thanks to menopause, maybe laziness, maybe finding a purpose. A real purpose, not a collect a paycheck purpose. Making things meaningful in the now.

Now for the WW update. Not so good. Stilla t 4lbs and holding. I know what the problem is.  I need to exercise more.  I need to walk everyday.  The weather is finally cooling off, I will bring a change of clothes and my shoes into the office everyday and will start walking.

10 years goes by alot faster than you think it would, just ask me.

So even though I knew when Steve Jobs resigned he was dying. Why else would he leave? It was a sucker punch to the gut when I heard he passed.  I thought he would have given himself more time with his family, maybe there would have been a miraculous recovery, maybe?

I was not an apple groupie until this past January. I always had my PC with good old DOS then windows. But I became more and more enamored with apple products. My first was the big iPod brick that I bought in 2007 with the Boze speakers to plug it into. That replaced my aging stereo that I had for years. How cool, I could by the one song I liked instead of the whole album! What a concept.

A couple years later, some friends gave my the iPod shuffle. Small with a clip so I could just clamp it onto my person when going for walks. I created my walking playlist just for that! Perfect! Then last year I bought C a Macbook for her birthday, and guess what we got free with the purchase? iTouch!  MINE! I downloaded angry birds and pocket frogs, and yes I started to love those APPS!

So this January for my birthday, after using a PC for almost 30 years. Yes that long, I switched to Mac. I bought myself a lovely 15″ Macbook Pro. Backlit keyboard, touching the pad is like caressing a lover, lovely. It is a work of art, and then about 2 months ago I traded in my Blackberry. My Blackberry my friend, or at least I thought it was, until I got my iPhone.  Ah, my iPhone. My constant companion.

Thank you Steve.
