Hello August ...celeb dream #29
Sunday ended up being a great date day with the hubby--we went to the movies CaptainAmerica had a romantic /nostalgic/vintage WWII feel and fun. Both hubby and I enjoyed it. Then a classic burger lunch/dinner at Red Robins-- burgers/sweet potato fries (I eat half and took home half), and fro yo. Sunday night--laundry, changed the linens on the bed, walked the dogs, True Blood. In all, not a bad weekend food wise (meaning no major binge) but not the lowest choices of calories. Hubby says my tush is getting rounder and that means tightening up calorie control. He says when I was at my lowest a couple of months ago that my bum had bones jutting out. How can that be at over 200lbs? One day at a time. All the pain from yesterday , magically gone-just a memory.
August--hot. HAWT!. Temps in high 90's and 100 predicted for this week.
I'm pining for fall already. We broke out a new bottle of pumpkin spice Bath and body works soap.
Celeb dream #29..just had this one a few hours ago. I'm a nurse working in the hospital and the actors John Corbett ( Aiden from Sex and the City ) and Jake Gyllanhaal are doctors that I work with and get along with great. Jake came up behind me and gave me a big bear hug from behind and I couldn't reach him to see for sure who it was. In reality, my cat was sleeping on my back and I couldn't reach him to pull him off me. Also, in reality, my husband is a slightly older and heavier version of Jake G.(and less hair) in this photo..no lie.
Gratitude today for my sweet husband, dreams, simple things, ceiling fans.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
