Time To Re-Focus!

Hello y’all. I trust your weekend was great. I had a pretty good one. I got to see the A-Team on Saturday night. Normally, this isn’t exactly my type of movie but I give you exhibit A:

That’s right, Bradley Cooper is in the movie and I think he is...attractive. Aside from the beautiful-ness that is Bradley Cooper, the movie was actually pretty good. Outlandish at times, it was funny and action packed and even though I’m generally intimidated by movies that are almost 2-1/2 hours long, it was very entertaining.

Before the movie, Saturday was a pool day. I had fun and I made it through the whole day without going over my points. I only have 2 more Saturday’s left in June and then I get a smidge of a break in July so I think I’m doing pretty good. I would say the discipline is paying off but as of Saturday morning, I was still 1 pound up from the birthday debacle. I am thinking that next Saturday morning will show a loss for the first time in a long time...I’m REALLY hoping that it does. As always, I ate WAY too much on Sunday and then watched the Tony’s Sunday night and went to bed.

So, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I am a writer of sorts and even though I’ve been neglecting it lately, it is my passion. My Masters degree is in Poetry and I need to make sure that I make that my focus. My greatest fear of graduating with my MFA was that I would immediately see a decline in my writing and that has turned out to be very true. I have no literary deadlines and I am not in an academic environment. I really need to make sure I focus on getting my book of poetry ready to send out and begin a new project that I have been wanting to for awhile. Just like I need to get my finances and weight in order, I need to also get my writing priorities in order. To do that, I need to shave off the amount of creative time I spend on the blog and transfer that to writing things that contribute to my long term goals. Having said that, I am going to decrease the number of times I blog to 2-3 times per week rather than 5. This is good for a couple of reasons. One, at this point, I am just filling you in on my day and not really putting in as much effort as I could or as I did in the beginning (a great example would be the beginning of today’s blog). If I cut it down, I can consolidate the information and the words I write will be more rich. I don’t want to blog just for the sake of blogging. Second, it’s good because I can keep my focus on weight loss with the blog all while hopefully finding more room to write poetry or fiction.

I will probably blog again on Wednesday about the recipe I’m trying out this week and maybe some other things...who knows? Until then, I hope you have a great week...I’m hoping to catch up on some Netflix movies and some True Blood Season 2.


“I walked a minute in your shoes, they never would've fit
I figured there's nothing to lose
I need to get some perspective on these words before I write them down
You're an island and my ship is running ground

I could tear your apart, but it won't break anything that we are, we are
We'll say our goodbyes you know it’s better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change
All we are, all we are, is everything that's right
All we need all we need, our love is at a bind
Every single day that I can breathe, you changed my philosophy
I'm never gonna let you pass me by
So don't say your goodbyes you know it’s better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change [x2]
All we are, all we are, is everything that's right
All we need, all we need, our love is at a bind.” All We Are-One Republic
