Another thing you didn't know about me...
I love grain silos.
I like driving through Kansas in the winter.
I like how stripped down and essential everything becomes.
The dead stalks of corn and the pewter sky and the occasional bare tree posed against the sky, alone. Something you wouldn't notice anywhere else....but because it's so rare...the tree is noticeable.
Sometimes there is beauty in what is considered ugly.
It looks real, untouched.
It's the beauty of reality.
It is what it is.
I was riding an amtrak train through philadelphia when I was 19.
The train tracks passed right by these brick apartment buildings with open windows , but they weren't open...they were broken. It was winter...December.
And the curtains from inside were sucked out into the breeze.
Just these little flags of color against dirty brick.
Kind of like pieces of peoples' souls, like spiritual flags or something.
I like railway stations, and factories at night with smokestacks.
Junkyards and gravel pits...especially at night.
The remains of humanity.
Hope everyone is feeling great.
This week was hit and miss.
I did 5 days of exercise...so I guess I am pulling out one of my flex days.
This makes two out of three flex days used..
Water...every day...great water intake.
1500 calories every day but yesterday....ugh.
situps 3 days of situps...on target. The upper body, only 2 days.
cabbage and turkey sausage tonight.
I have been getting my veggies and fruits in daily...of course with the higher calorie count I should.
Calories in today at 1360...
I blame the cabbage.
I ate a ton and there is hardly any calories in it.
Turkey sausage and cabbage.
dinner 480 calories
lunch cottage cheese and pineapple 250
yogurt honey and peaches 330
coffee 80 calories
crackers and cheese 220
crazy....it was a ton easier today.
turkey sausage is a good meat to eat...it fills me up, I can have a ton....
My hair has a reddish light brownish tint....not actually a blond. lol.
My friend and kids and hubby say they like it.
I am still trying to get used to it.
I will try to upload a pic tomorrow.
And I just want to say...
