Alright, so you know what I’ve decided? It’s Christmas. I always think I’m going to love Christmas, but when the actual holiday rolls around. I realize it's just pressure. Pressure to be romantic and happy and familial. I thought back, I started feeling really poopy at the beginning of December. Right? (All quitting smoking aside here.) Then I felt shitty all December, and today? I feel great! Eff Christmas! Eff this damn holiday full of obligation and pressure. I love the candles and the trees and the lights, but I hate the pressure to “be happy.” So, I have a whole year to be happy before it hits again!
So, I’m So Hot Thursday!
Oh I love to just stay there, just keep me there one more week weight gods and I will bow and kneel to your infinite power.
My ankle is 1,000 times better. It feels great. It’s still a little painful if I press on it and eff with it, so I’m going to hold off on the running till after the New Year. Give it one more week or so of rest and then I’m going to run the shit out of it. I’m so relieved, I was nervous it wasn’t going to go away. And I’m really looking forward to running again. I also got a bunch of exercises that will make my heels/ankles/Achilles stronger, so this doesn’t happen again!
I have a bunch of things I want to start in the New Year, as we all do. John gets a ton of ladies health magazines from work, and I’ve started clipping stuff out, doggy-earing things I want to remember (like my constant battle with granola, some I hate, some I love, I’m finally giving up on granola and am going to use grape nuts in my yogurt! DONE! I LOVE Grape Nuts!). I’m also going to start bringing my own yogurt (the lowfat Greek kind) instead of getting it from the Mart…little things like that.
I also just got my haircut and I’m adorable. Seriously, this is the best haircut I’ve had in years, and its all part of my master plan, to really take some pride in how I look by using what I can at my disposal, instead of just being someone who pretends not to care.
So…one more thing I did, just about an hour ago, I went to the CVS. Yes I did. And what did I do there? I splurged. I spent $80 on all new makeup: New mascara, new eyeliner, new lipstick, new moisturizer, new blush, new foundation, new hair gel and of course, new “mineral glow”. My makeup is old and tired and cracked and broken, and I believe that this is the kind of thing that creeps into your subconscious. If I have cracked, broken, and crappy old makeup…then there’s some part of me that feels crappy and broken and old.
I ALSO went and bought Ram Daas’ book on meditation, it’s for beginners, how to start and what to do. I figure if he’s gotten into my brain and had an impact on me, maybe it would be best to start with his book. So…Hixx is getting ready for 2008.
I’m off tomorrow, back on Monday, I’ll do a 2007 wrap-up then.
Tonight? We bowl.
We don’t really, but I just watched Grease II, and its one of my favorite lines, you cool rider you.
