The countdown to JJ has begun

Only two more days before I go on vacation!!!!! I have never in my life wanted some time off so bad. The last few weeks have been crazy and hectic. But today, I made a new friend. Her name is Betty. Betty liked me for me and was content to allow me to pat her.

I spend some time at a learning farm where I met all kinds of animals from Llamas and peacocks to miniatures horses and sheep. It was hot as hell but I had a great time. I think I will take JJ there next week.
This is Betty. She is so friendly and  a camera hog.

We are greeting each other.


So far, everything is set for him to come up with me for a visit. I am trying not to get my hopes up to much because something always prevents him coming to RR. So keep your fingers cross for me. I can't help it but I am so excited. This week has been much better than last week.

Last week, for every three people I encountered, two would ask me if I was pregnant. It was a lot for one person to take. It resulted in me being grumpy with the world and crying a lot. My boss realized what was  happening and we had a chat. He suggested walking three days a week at 45 minutes each time. I feel much better. The walking is good because it helps me to clear my head. I have started getting up early because it is more cooler in the am than the pm.  My med dose has been increased and I am taking vitamins. I feel much healthier and not as self conscious. So far this week, only two people have asked me. I try to have a sense of humor about it.
Even though, I have a weird expression on my face. I feel good. Plus, I like how healthy I look in this photo.

 DAILY DOSE

1. Spending an afternoon at a farm. And I got paid to do it.

2. In a few days, I will be with JJ.

3. For the first time in weeks, I felt good about myself.

  1. I have put on a fair bit of weight and I find it really hard coming from an ED to where I am now. I am a tiny bit overweight but it doesn't look bad on me and I am not obsessive anymore about what I eat. That's part of the problem/solution in recovery, you put on weight. It's just dealing with it that sucks. I too am doing the walking thing for 30 minutes three times a week. I walked yesterday and I felt a lot better. When tax time comes July/August is when we usually get our money, I am getting a Wii and a Wii Fit. I hope to bring some fun into my exercise and be able to exercise no matter the whether. I hope you get to have JJ and Betty looks cute :)
