A long road traveled – Day 3

Where we last left off, I was still twitching like a crackhead in need of a social media hit. I’m glad to report that the itch is dying down and I’m instead looking for more productive ways to spend my time.

After a quick workout yesterday Tre and I made an impromptu visit to one of my favorite discount stores, Ross, to buy some new excersize clothes. I squawked when I saw the price of yoga pants. These people do understand that I’m literally buying these pants to do nothing more than fill them with sweat and fat right?

Any way.

I’ve stopped eating meat for three weeks now with exception to a few slip ups that I quickly came to regret.

As a new pescatarian I set out to eat more vegetables and seafood but the forces are against me. I’ve been struggling to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables since the government shut down. Everywhere I turn there’s warnings against eating certain foods due to the limited capacity of the FDA. Most notably fresh fruit and vegetables. Couple that with anxiety and you can pretty much guess that I’ve only been eating foods that can be thoroughly cooked. It’s been a lot of carbs. Yesterday I said enough was enough and rolled the dice. Tre took me to my favorite fast food restaurant Salata, a build your own salad bar, and I WENT IN.

Best damn salad I’ve ever built! And it only set us back a whopping $30 for two salads. $28 if I’m being technical and giving Tre her credit. She actually tipped the crew without me prompting her. A whole $2.00 at that. I know it doesn’t seem like a lot but this was coming from the person who doesn’t subscribe to tipping as a principle.

After eating, I spent the rest of the afternoon braiding my hair down to my scalp because my workout had no problem reverting the rest of my failed blowout attempt from the day before.

Fuck it!

I’ll wear wigs for the rest of this week.

I applied the press on nails Tre and I had picked out from the grocery store the day before and watched That 70’s show until bed time.

While I was able to keep myself pretty busy yesterday I still caught myself more than a hand full of times picking up my phone to check for notifications. I’m getting better though.

What I haven’t done is get started working on that damn blanket. At this point I’m not sure if I’m not picking it up as an act of defiance toward myself or fear of the finality of completing it. I’m gonna meditate on that.

I also haven’t started writing anything that would serve to get a book started. Now that, I have thought about. The “why” of it all at least. I need a new idea. I’ve been fleshing out one for a while but it has turned into a flop. I’ve decided I do want to write a love story centered around two lesbians but the thought train ends there for now, at least that’s how I feel for now 🤷🏽‍♀️.

Instead of trying to force it I’m choosing to just go with the flow and see what pans out. In the meantime, I am having a lot of fun writing recaps and opinions of Killer Mike’s Netflix special so I may do a few more of those.

I feel like I’m rambling now so I’m going to sign off for the night.

I’d love to hear how your Sunday went. Leave it down below!

Until next time…

Don’t judge me. You don’t know my life!!!
