Finding motivation update

Hey y’all, quick check-in after an tiresome few days.

Things are going ok. My son has had some very early morning commitments that I needed to attend with him so I’ve been napping a few hours each day then sleeping a few hours each night before starting again; it’s draining but we rose to the challenge. Yay us.

On top of low energy I am really beginning to feel the crunch of having to move. I keep stalling using my lack of boxes as an excuse, but in all reality I cannot stall anymore. It’s all coming to a head and I don’t have a choice but to get over it and move on. My neighbor is moving the end of this month and watching him sell off his belongings has not been easy. I’m trying to use it as motivation for me to do the same but I’m not quite there yet. I’m really going to miss my neighborhood.

With all of this taxi riding and napping laziness happening I forced myself to get out for a but today. I walked the mile to Grocery Outlet and hoped the bus home due to the heavy bags, but later I pushed myself to walk the mile round trip to a a corner store for a drink. It was so sunny, warm and nice, it felt great to get out. On the plus side I can see in my face that I am losing weight 🙂

Oh, piercing update: my lip is healing and looking good. My inner lip was pretty chewed up from the labret investing with the swelling, but the indent is now closing up since switching to the smaller lip ring (16g and a diameter that almost hugs my lip). I’m feeling good and think I will be piercing my nose soon, but first my hair needs attention.

Any fun stories from your week? Please share, I could use a smile.

Success, progress made!!

Success!! I managed to reach a couple of goals today 🙂 I made it to the grocery store, made 2 separate Buy Nothing pick ups and even got exercise!! Oh I even cleaned the bathroom and kitchen. Yay me!

Since I had done more riding in vehicles today than walking I chose to walk to my last Buy Nothing pick up which was just under a mile away. It was a very nice walk. The return home was a little challenging as I had 2 garbage bags full of boys size 18 jeans, luckily after a while your hands go somewhat numb. I do have to say waking with garbage bags down a main street in the dark is a somewhat humbling experience as the first assumption people seem to have is that you’re a “bag lady.”

Today was definitely another good day!

Side note: if you have not gotten into the Buy Nothing movement you should look into it. They are local Facebook groups across the U.S. with the goal of bringing neighbors together. It’s a giving group and sooo awesome!

What a great day

I can’t believe how great today ended up being! Since losing the car mid month and being cooped up in the house due to low funds I declared today my day out. Boy did I need it! I hoped a bus with my sister and little niece and hit the mall. Seriously, it was sunny, warm, and I just got paid so hell yeah mall it was.

We walked our asses off doubling back and forth as each of us took turns selecting our next destination (I guess I won’t feel so bad for not working out like I intended to). It’s amazing how fun it is to just clown with friends/family outside of home, my niece even made trying on sunglasses into a fun event…she’s adorable.

So my one destination and motivation to hit that particular mall was to hit the body piercing spot and pick up a new labret stud with a longer stem, my hoop was too big, heavy, and driving me crazy and the original labret stud was still too short to allow the inside of my lip to heal right. Well I got one and it feels great!! I’ll post a pic tomorrow, can’t see it in the dark. 🙂

Anyways, I’m exhausted and have more running to do tomorrow…a new day, new missions. Good night all.
