Things I Learned Today / Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Things I learned today…

It’s Birthday Eve!

So I stopped eating carbs, right? It’s been a week, and I’m 5 lbs up, my energy has gone kaput, my sleep is crap and I’m getting up TWICE a night to pee, and I have the beginnings of a fever blister. What in the actual hell?

When I ate cake for no reason, I was happy, I slept good, and I was ready to get up and change the world. I also felt terrible about myself, my joints hurt, and I felt like there was a hot chick in this body screaming to get out. What gives?

Sugar addiction is no joke. I’m a druggy coming off the dope, I guess.

I hate to complain about anything. There are people trying flee terrorism today, running, willing to leave everything, scared, facing death, or actually being killed. I have no idea how that feels whatsoever. Oh, my heart.

It was about 8:10 pm and totally dark when I walked out of the studio and got in the car tonight. As soon as I slid into the seat, I instinctively put my sun glasses on and started the car. And there I sat…8:10 pm…totally dark…with my sunglasses on. It’s fine. I’m fine.

When a mom lets her kids run all around the studio, get behind things, and knock stuff over….whooo boy!

There are friends of mine who I’m not sure realize how beautiful they are. My friend, Mandy, is one of them.

Tomorrow is my birthday. 46. Uugghh, I love birthdays, but…46. I got this, right?!

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
