current mood: determined
My Momma told me don't lose you
'cause the best luck I had was you
And I know one thing, that I love you
~ ‘Say Hey’ by Michael Franti and Spearhead
I do not make a habit of writing in specifics or identifying the people about which I write. Granted, using logic, many people have speculated as to the identities of my anonymous sources, etc. Sometimes the nicknames are too obvious to really do anything besides avoid Google search bringing up the blog entry should someone be ‘researching’ gossip info. Some nicknames are harder to identify, either because I dislike the person and don’t want them to know I am writing about their stupidity (i.e. ‘soccer boy’ who used to sit next to SCG before leaving the company); their narcissism (i.e. ‘non-kisser’), intensity (i.e. ‘nazi coach’ whom I actually adore); or due to a secret crush (i.e. ‘Becks’). I have even combined people into one personality for total anonymity. It’s creative licensing and since I do not claim that what I write is ‘just the facts’ I feel that I am free to take these liberties.
Next week ‘Kabie’ and I are going to Las Vegas, NV, where we will most likely engage in public drunkenness and debauchery. It is hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since our last visit to Sin City! Before this little holiday. However, I will be engaging in some clean, wholesome fun. Non-boyfriend (NBF) and I are going to Nebraska City to visit an apple orchard and pick our own apples. Mini road trips are great fun – and I know that we will have an amazing time. Plus I’ll get some yummy fruit to snack on. I am back on an ‘eat healthy’ kick and intend on maintaining this new habit for at least the next month. Hopefully by that point, I will no longer have to work so hard at it.
NBF is by biggest supporter and inspiration when it comes to getting healthier. He works out and eats with a level of discipline that I am doing my best to emulate (after making minor modifications which prevent me from having to eat cottage cheese or foods I cannot pronounce). I openly acknowledge that his body reflects his discipline, as it is 24 year old perfection. For myself, I am not aiming for perfection – instead I will be ecstatic when I reach 33 year old ’surprisingly fit’. I have a plan which includes strength training, healthier eating choices, and running hills three times a week with NBF. ‘Mi Madre’ and ‘Papa’ are also making healthier exercise and food decisions. Accountability is in place – now for follow-through!
PERSONAL NOTE: Next week we’re going to ‘Party like a Rockstar’ or like a ‘DJ’.
CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: I love you too much to ever actually consider marrying you.
