Saturday Morning -- Anyone Around?

I'm at work and bored.

I also had a dream about childbirth last night.  I went into labor and delivered the kid and everything.  For some reason, the dream is really sticking with me today.  I can't stop thinking about it.

    Im around!
    Thats a pretty crazy dream, I dont think Ive ever had a labor dream. Do you think it means anything to you? Were you happy about the dream? Or were you bummed out about the labor?
    The most reent dream Ive had is one in which i buy myself a Taco Bell flavored Luna Bar. I dont think theres any meaning behind that one...

    I had a dream about A's best friend & his GF showing up at my work. The best friend had on cowboy boots & a cowboy hat, and told me that his GF (who is in her mid-to-late 40s) was pregnant. He hugged me & said "but I still don't like you." Clearly I have some residual bad feelings about them, or so it seems.

    (I always thought the GF didn't like me, you know, woman's intuition, but A always said I was crazy. After we broke up, I found out they said some not-nice things about me, so I guess I wasn't so crazy after all.)

    Hey Bri and BT!

    I don't think the dream really meant anything.  It seems like my facebook has been inundated with new babies lately.  I swear, like 6 people have had babies in the last month and several more are very pregnant.  I think it was inspired by that.

    What's everyone doing today?

    Hey ladies, I'm here around-ish. I had some weird-o dreams last night and apparently I was talking very loudly to several people in my dreams as well. Needless to say when I finally fell in to a good sleep at 7am, I managed to sleep until 11:30 (not my thing to sleep late ever).

    What was your birthing experience like in your dream? Was it traumatic? Peaceful? Just wondering if that's the reason it's sticking with you.

    As for what I'm doing today, it beats the snot out of me. Might clean and prep to do some projects I've pinned on Pinterest.

    It was really easy, actually.  In the dream, I remember thinking "this is a piece of cake - why do women complain so much?"  hahaha.

    In spite of that, though, it seemed really real.  Maybe that's why it's lingering.

    No need, I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now, but my problem is that I have so much I want to blog about that I have no idea which theme I should go with and can't figure out a name to save my life. So, here I sit over-analyzing blogs around the world wondering how the successful ones came up with their names etc.

    haha true story: When I was in labor with my older DD, I actually screamed at the nurse "Who would want to do this more than once?!?!"

    Most of the time I hate dreams that are too real. It just freaks me out. Makes me wonder if one day down the road I'll be one of those crazy people that can't tell dreams from reality.

    Haha yeah, I did all that stuff, too.  I still think about it.  How awesome would it be to have a blog you could actually earn a living from?

    But eventually I just decided to write about me and not put any pressure on myself to make it unique or massively appealing...

    Hey everyone. I'm at work today. I'm kind of bummed because I was hanging out with a friend, talking about my weight loss. I told her how much I look up to our other friends (four of them) for losing so much weight over this past year. She said, "Well, they all had surgery. That's how they lost it so fast."

    I'd had no idea, because every time I asked them how they lost so much weight or what they were doing, they'd change the subject or not answer. I should have known.

    I'm sure this is flame-worthy, but even though I know how hard the post-surgery lifestyle is, I still feel like they "cheated" and I'm slogging along doing it the old-fashioned way. Would I like to lose 70 pounds in three months like one of them did? Of course. Am I willing to permanently alter my body? Hell no. All four of them were my size or smaller when they started, so it wasn't a matter of life and death; it was a matter of getting off the couch. I'm feeling super judgy right now. It's like someone with a trust fund telling me how to budget my money. They got a head start; I did not.

    I suppose I should just be happy and proud of myself for working my butt off, but I'm too sleepy to be rational.

    If it's flame-worthy then go ahead and flame me too! Because that rubs me the wrong way too. At the end of the day you have something to be PROUD of. And you should be proud. Because it's a lifestyle change. And whose to say that they won't continue the lifestyle that got them to their starting weight as it is? At least you've committed to being healthier and active.

    Don't worry - they'll end up gaining all the weight back because they never learned to alter their mindsets.  Meanwhile, you're changing your habits and lifestyle so keeping it off will be a piece of cake.

    Thanks, ladies. One of them DOES exercise and watch his eating, so I really am proud of him. I'm sure he'll stick with it because he loves talking about his fitness plan. The others... I have no idea. They're the ones who always bean-dip me when I ask about their weight loss. Time will tell, I suppose.

    You have a good point about how many people end up gaining some/all of it back. I'm so happy with my new eating/exercise habits that I can't imagine going back to the way I used to live. *shudder* It honestly scares me that I used to eat like that, even though I've only been doing this for a couple months.

    I get that feeling, too.  I still allow myself occasional indulgent days to eat really poorly and at the end of them, when I'm feeling all fat and gross, I think about how I used to eat like that almost every day.  Holy crap.

    I'll just say that it's a really good thing I've always been pretty active.

    Agreed. I still have some ice cream and stuff on occasion. I just don't eat the whole pint anymore. ;) I'm sure I'll do that someday in the future, since I'm human and everyone has bad days, but the idea scares me right now because it's a slippery slope.

    I thought about a typical day before I changed my habits, plugged the food into MFP, and... omg... no wonder I got so heavy. Obviously, I knew I wasn't eating right, but I didn't realize just how bad it was until I did that. I wanted to apologize to my body/myself. I felt so bad.
  • Options
    I ate a whole pint of ice cream just a couple weeks ago, actually....  In fairness, it was one of my favoite flavors and it's only available seasonally, so I got really excited when I found it.

    Usually just a couple bites of ice cream are enough, though, so I don't have any qualms about giving into it.

    I'm also a major emotional eater.  Like today I'm in kind of a crappy mood and RavenRay just convinced me through text that I should go ahead and indulge my craving for a milkshake and chicken tenders.  Ha!  She's such an enabler.

    I do tend to give in to my bad-mood-induced cravings most of the time, though, because I know I'll be happy and healthy again soon.  :)

    That's a good attitude to have. :) I do still enjoy treats on occasion (I'm an emotional eater too). I just had to learn how to work them into my calorie budget. Some people are all finger-waggy because I still have pie and cheesecake, but I budget for it in my daily calories, so I don't care what they think.

    I didn't mean to make the morning thread all about me. :-P Oops.
  • Options
    Ha, no worries.  I always like talking about diet and nutrition.  It helps keep me on track mentally.

    And yeah, I budget calories for desserts and enjoy them with my head held high.  A diet that didn't allow me any pie or cheesecake is a diet I would fail within the first week.  Or the first day.  Whatever.  I like pie.

    I'm around watching the rangers/devils game.  BF & I repainted my bathroom last night, we decided on yellow.  I hate it so much.  It looks way too bright on my walls, I just want to cry. So we may repaint it again we'll see how I feel after a week or so.  The color didn't look so bright when we saw the sample and all...

    Ugh. That's too bad. That happened to me last year. I found a great shade of purple. Once it was on the walls, though, not so much. It was better suited for a bedroom, not a living room. I was pretty bummed. I let it cure and put pictures up, but it still looked too grape-y.

    I slept for thirteen hours last night, and it felt really damn good.

    It may not look so bad once I go back to it, I am with my BF for the rest of the weekend.  I may repaint it, but it will be hard since it's so bright and I want to go lighter.

    JEALOUS.  I slept for 6, and that's not near enough for me.

    Enjoy your birthday lunch!
