NO Soda Fast: Day One.

12:34 p.m. My day has begun and I had this weird dream about Jonathan Rhys Meyers. It was a dream of a movie of his, shot 'documentary' style as if it was following his life, but it was very dramatized and parts of it were very sad, going over drinking and yelling in public. On a brighter side, it also talked about what at first looked like his fiance (not Mara, but Jessica De Gowe) planning a wedding but at the end, it turns out her SISTER is the one getting Married when she stops by her work at this high floor of an office building. Don't recall much else except me trying to go on Facebook afterwards to talk about it, once I could get past my login issues, lol.

No doubt it was because of something awful and saddening and all sorts of heartbreaking that DailyMail posted about him yesterday.

Donny had knocked on the door two times already since I woke ten minutes ago. In a rush, I told him we aren't awake...I wasn't really 'up' the first time and Rob and April are very much asleep.

12:42 p.m. I have no idea what I'm going to do today. Watercolors sound fun. I just don't know if I'm up for more creating after days of work although I REALLY want to be. Rob bought me five bucks in Lindens, SecondLife currency, which I will pay him back for. I bought enough fishing supply on there to last a REALLY REALLY long time. XD I wouldn't mind fishing today.

Also, everyone stay with me on this, because I am experimenting and hope I stick to it. Starting today, I am on a soda fast! I CAN'T have soda...sparkling water is fine...but no soda. I want to see what this will do but consider this day one, mmmkay?

12:49 p.m. After some searching, I see this means the Soda Fast goes from now, if successful, until June 18, 2015. Pray for me in Jesus name, amen! P.S. I love these two shots from Mema's. One has the foreground in focus and the other has the background in focus. :D Jesus rejoices. I say those two words A LOT LOT LOT in my head. lol. I was gonna write them at some point, ya know? Better late than never.

1:10 p.m. I was just researching this soda thing and it sounds like this fast could have it's benefits, especially if I replace it with water. :) I am a chronic yo-yo dieter. I have my months of health and portion eating with exercise and then other with piles of food and low exercise (gaining back whatever I lost before plus extra) WELL! Now that I'm at the biggest I've ever been in my life, ever, and slowly losing the fit of SIZE 13 shorts which used to be perfect, I'm declaring a change. I have to make a list though if I'm going to commit. Let's just call this also a 31 day diet.

For 31 Days:
1. No soda.
2. No seconds.
3. No sugary desserts. (I'll allow popcorn.)
4. Limit eating TOO many times a day.
5. Drink more water. LOTS!
6. Exercise at least 3-4 times a week.
7. PORTIONS! I've gotta re-train my mind to accept that a cup of pasta is actually quite filling since my own mind has learned to manipulate myself otherwise.
8. No candy or jalepeno cheetos.
9. Only eating when I'm hungry.

If I stick to this for a month, there's no way I won't see a difference. AND if I hit 31 days, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see myself go for 60, and if I win, 90. I guess that can be my reward. There's gotta be a goal right? The goal is to stick to it, get better, and then get to say I'm ready for another 30 days, and another.

If you really want to get down to endgames I wouldn't mind comfortably being a size 11 again (which I have been before for years), which

means dropping at least 2-2 1/2 sizes to fit into these REALLY tight jeans I have which I notoriously rarely fit into unless I'm having a better body at the time.

If you want to get religious about it, literally, giving up indulgences and over eating honors God, which is the most important, not only would it be honoring God with my behavior but honoring God with the way I use the body He gave me. Jesus rejoices. Just...it's about time.

I'm on that 'day one' feeling with the expectation, confidence, and over enthusiasm. Words are easy but we'll see just what kind of person I'm made of if I really stick to this and over come temptation, and God willing, not just for now but for the long run as well. P.S. I got a birthday party I may or may not be attending, Harmony's,
and possibly Drake's afterward, in the coming months so THERE lies a challenge. But there's no sense in worrying about that far ahead. :D Finally I have something decent to write about huh?

I'm thinking of recording my progress somewhere other than online and sticking it where I can see it. Keeping a journal would be nice if I could find it...

On an unrelated note, I desperately need to get around to doing laundry. I'm out of some clean clothes and will give myself until at least 4 p.m. to do it. So! Let's hope that goes well today as well.

Now that I've come to the end of pics taken at Mema's, I can start posting the adorable ones I took at Mom's house. ^^ Just of the kids and God, are they adorable!! God bless, Jesus loves, died, rose, lives, saves! Bye!! P.S. I'll try to behave diet wise on a date as well. XD God willing.




1:56 p.m. Randomly decided to install the Timehop App and whatnot. Really wanting to paint. ^^

4:34 p.m. Two and a half hours pass and I finished my painting. I have to take Mrs. M her mail and then I'm on God's good humor from there. Maybe eat...maybe exercise. Both hopefully. God bless, Jesus loves, lives, saves.

5:11 p.m. I'm an hour late but I got my laundry going, praise Jesus. I've watched some Modern Family and had ONE hot pocket with water..and thinking of a popcorn snack. Just one bowl. :) Fitness another day as it's getting late already.

8:31 p.m. My laundry got washed but still needs drying. The power went out while I was looking up videos on watercolor tutorials and I made a pasta dinner and only ate about a cup :) With cold water, which I'm glad for backup jugs because the water went out briefly as well.  Watching Modern Family and kinda unhappy about Hissy's newest plot to get food: Eat from the dirty dishes in the sink. By no means is this cat starved but she is almost always hungry!! And I don't like being on all this duty to watch for it.

8:37 p.m. I'm a little frustrated with the cats, mood killer having to babysit like this, and I'm one point from demanding someone lock one of them in the bedroom. Just give me a break, you know?

12:00 a.m. Midnight. What on earth?! I played online, still drying my clothes, and just finished re-editing the first chapter of The Dream Doctor. Yes. That again! It NEEDED IT SO BAD! OMG! The cheese...so much cheese. I have a headache but I'll live. April writing fan fiction inspired me to write again by the way so I hope to stick to it. God bless, Jesus loves, died, rose, lives, saves. Good night! Good night! END of updates!
