So Jumbled June is over, thankfully. As hoped, July has started off wonderfully. I am really happy fireworks are over, as they make my Lyla terribly anxious. Yet my energy is still blasting into July with friends, fun, family, and antics.
Happiness Is articles are a series on the blog that highlights the small things that bring joy to my life. Check out more here.
June wasn’t all bad though.
My daughter and I had some fun attending a local comic store event and playing with lightsabers at her place.
Her boyfriend picked these high-dollar toys up at ComicCon.
I won’t even go into how jealous I am that he got to go!
Blasting Into July, Health:
The downside of June is that I found out my cholesterol is sky high.
Never a good thing but with Type 1 Diabetes it’s a really bad thing.
So I set out to get back on track with my diet and exercise.
I have lost a lot of weight but in addition, I am feeling so much better overall.
My mom is a good inspiration for me when it comes to getting in shape.
She will kill me if she finds this photo on here but it’s worth the risk.
Blasting Into July, Dating:
Dating has been, enlightening to say the least.
It’s funny the games divorced people play.
Most men my age are divorced.
Personally, I do not play games.
I tell it like it is.
I can be subtle but I choose not to be.
Speaking of divorce, I finally received the papers I have been waiting on to start my own proceedings.
With brings me to this sidebar:
Note To The Soon To Be Ex: Hey dipshit, since I know you stalk my blog, please forward me your mailing address so we can get this deal done!
He admitted to checking the blog for updates on the pets and myself.
Anyway, lol back to the good stuff…
Blasting Into July With Friends:
Another great thing about getting back to oneself is reconnecting with old friends and making new friends.
One of my two best friends of all time and I had some crazy antics and fun to help her daughter set up a new home.
This woman drags me across state lines to buy a porch swing and find a cushion for it!
Gotta admit though, this set up is CUTE AF!
And of course, shopping always means those bizarre finds…
Don’t even ask what’s going on with my eyes.
Couldn’t do that again if I tried.
No, I did not buy the mask.
Goals For July:
My number one goal is to continue to focus on my health and working out.
Not just for the sake of getting my cholesterol down but because good health is everything.
Especially at my age.
I refuse to go into my 50’s feeling like crap.
I’m a bit obsessed with working out at this point.
What I really want to do after I get down to 125 is get toned, if not possibly ripped, but we shall see.
For now, I just need to hit goal weight and tone up.
Currently, I weigh in at 129, so not far to go.
At only five foot three inches tall, 125 is reasonable.
It’s not all about weight though.
I have totally overhauled my diet and am eating 90% vegan.
My exception is if out with friends or on a date, which is only about once a week or so.
This month, for me, Happiness Is, blasting into July with a bang!
What brings you happiness?
I would love to hear from you in comments.
I hope all of you have a bang on July and blast your goals!
