Love it

My actually very good lunch today! Chicken, grapes, green onions (grown on my windowsill I might add), all drizzled with some olive oil and scooped with lettuce. Mmmmm

Would I do it Again?

So the question is, if I went back to Tuesday this past week, would i do it again? Right now I think I'd say...I'm not sure. I do see the light at the end of the tunnel but after a day of sitting at my desk at work and 1.5 hours of standing mid day my foot is maaaaad at me!'

However...this morning it is better, I just wish I had better shoes and could walk and I think if I did it again I'd take out the part by my toe to be able to even wear flip flops. Just pointers for anyone considering the foot tattoo. You never think of how it will affect your life, not wearing shoes, how it dries in one position while I have it elevated and then I have to bend it to stand up. Bending causes pain and then we have the joyful bending pain added with the excruciating pain of the blood flow going back into it when you stand up! 

Now yes I know I did it to myself and I laugh every time I have to stop to breath slowly that I caused it. But life is short and the past few weeks have shown me it can end any second, so why not? Every bit of pain is a reminder that I'm alive...

My diet is on the way...

I decided to try that 17 Day Diet that is going around. It's helping me get back on track of eating healthy. Best breakfast so far!

So I'm sitting getting my foot tattooed right now. Decided to blog as a distraction as this is one of the most painful experiences I've ever gone through! I'm not even sure what to write.

It's interesting what your body goes through as you get this done. This is my 3rd tattoo so I'm not new to the process or the feeling. But that needle going over my tendons and bones is a big much, incredible that i am able to sit, not flinching, not crying while this occurs.

Almost half done. Almost! Moving up onto my leg which will hopefully be less painful. The outline of the vine is the worst, every new stroke is excruciating, then my body takes over pumping adrenalin through and numbing the small area and I thank god for that.

Ow ow ow ow... Ok done that part. So close to half done! We'll see if she has enough time to finish it all today.

I'm done rambling I think.

The coolest ad I've received at work!

So I open it think, "ya ya google, what now." and I see this cardboard ad in front of me. I let it go and to my delight it pops into a box! I thought it was coworker thinks I'm insane.

Pretty good...

Is life too short to miss out on all the bad for you things I want to eat or is it too short to poison my body with them!

I finally found the best thing to do with my iPad. Draw Something! Too bad it's the only thing I use it for!

So sleepy

Getting up at 2:00 AM to catch a plane and not sleeping until 9:30 PM really sucks. I'm getting too old for this, early bed again for me I think. I miss the days when I'd be going to bed at 5:00 AM and a few hours later I was good to go!

Of course...

I spend at least one minute fighting with a bag of Robin Eggs to look up and see this directly in front of me...

What's on your plate?

My green smoothie for lunch gave me the veggies for most of the day allowing me to splurge at lunch. May not seem like a splurge but deviled egg salad with a slice of cheese...yum!
