Pithy Thoughts Fled

On Sunday I volunteered to assist one of our agents in passing out promotional stuff at the Pride Festival at Indian School Steele Park. It’s a pretty park. It was a lovely day – very, very hot, though, and lots of sunshine. I remembered to wear my hat, and I didn’t get nearly as sunburned as I could have gotten, but come Monday morning, I was feeling HORRIBLE. I realized partway into the day that I had, indeed, gotten too much sun and was still somewhat dehydrated, so I drank a lot of water and collapsed when I finally got home Monday night, and was in bed by 8:00. Of course, I didn’t really SLEEP – or, rather, I rested long, but I don’t think well. Got some good sleep eventually, but spent a lot of time thinking. In the course of said thinking, I thought of something I wanted to use as the opening line for this post.

I didn’t write it down, of course, ‘cause I was trying to sleep. So I forgot it by morning (in fact, forgot it by 3:00 am, where I proved I am conditioned – cat meows, I must get up and go to the bathroom, then provide food). Of course, how intelligent and pithy could it have been, considering my mental state? (Still, I wish I could remember…)

Important information: Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours. This is good to know, since I watch TV at least three hours a day, but I also drink about a six pack a day, and recycle all six cans. (Pre-Earth Day information provided from the work Intranet.)

I am not losing any weight. Nothing seems to work. Hurm. I am working out, though, so at least I'm more or less in shape -- I just want to drop those stubborn final pounds, dang it!

There was some other good stuff about recycling aluminum, including the fact it's one thing that can be recycled indefinitely. I had to write down the thing about the three hours of television, since at least I now know I'm doing something good to lessen my carbon footprint!

it always helps to put it into units people can relate to

I've been at "about this weight" for several years now; I keep waiting for the plateau to break... This morning I tried to put on my blue suit and it was too tight -- argh! I know I was wearing that not too long ago. I think I'm getting lumpy...

For a while I kept a small notebook and pencil by my bedside and scrawled down the "brilliant thoughts" I would have at 2am without even turning on the lights. None of them were actually brilliant, but many of them weren't half bad -- at least they often helped me to get started in the middle instead of at the beginning, if that makes any sense.

Yeah, I've been working on these last 5-10 pounds, too -- not quite as hard as possible, but harder than before! And still no results...At least I'm not gaining right now :] .

Yeah, I was always told to do that but have never gotten the hang of it...

I really should just knuckle down and keep the food diary again. I just fall out of the habit. I wish I'd gotten it all off BEFORE I turned 40.

Alack for the too much sun, alack for the lost sentence. [hugs]

Someday I may remember it! :-)

*Hugs* back!
