I woke up at 5:30 a.m. I really wanted to sleep some more but that wasn’t happening. I wrote my blog and got Savana up. Made her breakfast of oatmeal and fresh squeezed oj, then sent her off to school.
Food for the Day
I made 60 oz of fresh squeezed oj, drank 16 oz. of it and bottled the rest up to take with me. I then made a 14 banana smoothie, bottled that up to take with me. Grabbed about 20 dates, a big jar of grapes and a watermelon, loaded up my bike and headed off.
It was a very cold morning. In the mid 20’s. My ears and fingers were frozen on the mile ride to physical therapy. It’s time to start wearing protection for my ears and getting out my thick winter gloves. I can’t stand winter. I want to wear shorts and a t-shirt all year long. I don’t like bundling up, I feel so restricted…and most importantly…I don’t feel sexy 🙂
At physical therapy I have gained a little bit more movement in my shoulder. I still have not been doing my exercises like I should. I really need to make that a priority if I want to get full movement back in my shoulder. Now with all my company gone it will be easier to focus on working my own stuff.
Breakfast and lunch
Next I rode 4 miles to work. At that job I drank the rest of my oj and cleaned for 2 hours. Then I rode 3 miles to downtown and met with the guy doing my website. He gave me some great ideas and also fixed firefox on my computer so I can browse the internet again. Yay! While I was there I ordered a 4 banana smoothie. I drank that and also drank my 14 banana smoothie. Yes…18 banana’s in my stomach. I felt so strong and happy.
I also got my introduction in while I was there. I met a woman named Krista. She was having a hard day. Sick of following social norms and putting up with the bs. We had a great talk about how to break away from the system while still living in it. She was much happier by the time the conversation was over 🙂
I rode a mile to my private yoga lessons. No one was there when I arrived. I realized that I had shown up a half hour earl. Even though it was still chilly out, the sun was shining bright. So I lied down on the sidewalk in the sun and got nice and toasty warm. It was a blissful half hour, just spacing off in my own happy land, soaking up vitamin D.
Tim showed up and I did yoga for an hour with him. It was a great session. I just love having Tim as my yoga instructor. Our energies match up very well together. He is a beautiful soul.
After yoga I rode a half mile to the co-op. Bought some more dates. Ran into my ex Jonathan and we talked for a while. Then I rode a mile downtown and met up with the young 26 year old that I had talked to the day before, Dante. We hung out for a while and I ate my jar of grapes.
We met Savana getting off the bus and took her to voice lessons. Then went to Flying M. I drank 56 oz. of fresh squeezed oj while I was there. Dante and I just talked and had a good time getting to know each other. Dante has bad boy written all over him, so of course I am very attracted to him. I don’t know what it is with me and bad boys. I would be a good idea for me to dig deep into myself and figure that one out.
Savana got out of voice lessons and I put her back on the bus to go spend the night at her dad’s. Then Dante and I rode 4 miles to my play. Dante stayed to see it. The play went great. I had more fun doing it than ever before. During intermission I ate about 6 dates.
After the play Dante and I rode to my house and watched a movie, I ate 2 apples during the movie. I went to sleep at around midnight.
Food for the day
Woke up at 8 a.m. Made a 14 banana smoothie to take with me. Made 24 oz. of oj and drank it right away. I hadn’t eaten my watermelon from the day before so I packed that up, as well as a jar of grapes.
Breakfast and lunch
I rode a very cold 5 miles to my first job. Cleaned for 2 hours and drank my 14 banana smoothie. Then I rode 5 miles to Wylla’s. Wylla was great as usual. I ate my watermelon and we talked. She gave me some great advice about my bad boy phase I am going through, since she used to love those bad boys as well. She also reminded me of where I want to put my energy and keeping my life simple. I am so grateful to have Wylla in my life.
After Wylla, I rode 4 miles to my next cleaning job. I rode through downtown and stopped to talk to my homeless friend Ronny. He was hanging out with a guy I didn’t know. That guy introduced himself to me. His name is Josh. Yay, I got my introduction in for the day and I didn’t even have to initiate it 🙂 I got to my job, cleaned for 2 hours and rode 5 miles home.
When I got home I was starving. I made another 14 banana smoothie and drank it right up. I talked to my roommate for a while. I was so cold and I couldn’t get warm. So I took a wonderful, relaxing hot bath. I felt so warm and happy. After my bath I rode 3 miles to my play. It went good and I ate 6 dates during intermission.
After the play I rode 5 miles to Dante’s house. We hung out for a short while and I left to ride the 5 miles home. On the way home I stopped at a bar to use the bathroom. There was some people playing pool in there and they were really good. I stayed and watched the game. Finally made it home around 1 a.m. and went to bed.
I just realized that I ate 28 banana’s in one day, plus some oj, a watermelon and some dates. Yes!! I have also had no overt fats for 2 days. I don’t really feel any different. When I do eat them I usually eat them in very small amounts.
