Day 2 – And I Lost My Idea

So there I was last night, laying in bed wishing I could see the moon but the cloud cover totally obscured her.  I could barely make out the glow.  As I was drifting off to sleep, I came up with a blog post idea for today.  Great!  YAY!

Hmmmph!  I woke up this morning and for the life of me couldn’t remember it.  I have wracked my brain all day and here it is almost 10:40 PM and I STILL can’t remember what it was to be about. Nothing is more frustrating than not remembering.  Except losing your train of thought mid post (which has happened!) and turning it into a rambling rabbit hole.

I have been exhausted all weekend, even though I have done nothing to warrant it.  My stomach has been wonky again.  My throat keeps trying to get sore on me.  The pain well, yeah it’s here too, no surprise.  I don’t know if I am trying to fight off a bug or if it’s just Spring tripping my allergies into overdrive.  But I don’t want to rush to the allergy meds just yet. Pollen counts don’t seem high enough to be bugging me according to the weather channel.

It’s rough when you want to do better for your body, food wise. But it’s harder when you live with someone who doesn’t do veggies and salads and fish.  I think of giving up the sodas, and I do go through my trying phases.  But fall off the wagon after a week or two and start all over again.  I can only drink so much water before I feel sick from it.  I can drink more tea, but I have to have my sugar.  I have to  be careful with what I do eat and drink thanks to some food allergies.  I look at all the Whole 30 or Paleo stuff going around, and think I want to try that.  But I’d have to wean myself off sugar slowly.  But again, with members who don’t eat the “rabbit food” it’s kinda hard to do not to mention the cost of groceries goes up.  My Ex would do low carb.  He wanted us all to do it, but I didn’t think it would be healthy for the girls at the time.  Plus I didn’t want to part with my pasta! and potatoes!  I/we could simply start by eating less processed foods.  Which we have been talking about.  As well as if we cut the soda, what are our options.  Because let’s face it, the sugar content in even “healthy” drinks can be off the charts.  And I don’t do diet drinks with all the chemical crap in them, beside being allergic to the fake sweeteners.

Now I just feel like I’m whining.  I know they say everything in moderation.  Don’t deny yourself something if you want it, just don’t over indulge.  Easier said then done when you can almost eat a 1/2 quart of Baskin Robbins without realizing it.  I will not confirm or deny the incident!  But seriously, I feel like it’s all just a pity party I’m having right now because I feel like crap.

Anyway, it’s almost 11 PM now and my pillow is calling me.

OH! Before I go.  Tomorrow starts the 100 Days Project.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to try and do. Then I was scrolling through Instagram earlier and someone shared that they were going to try for 100 blog posts. I was thinking something art related for me, but then I saw that and thought I could try to do 100 blog posts!  If I make it great, if I don’t that’s okay too.  But I can certainly try.  Though I really want to do an art related project. I know I can do both, but I don’t want to overwhelm myself.
