*deep sigh. Welll hello! I figured I’d come back to this thing, even though my ten weeks is over. I’ve successfully accomplished everything I felt I needed to do (except that pesky gym thing) in that ten week challenge. Go me! But now, a few weeks after that, I have come up with some newer, more challenging, umm…challenges. I’ve started them this week (for the most part), and am proud to report that on Day 2, so far, sooo gooood.
I am detoxing. And yes, it’s as gross as it sounds. But I’m actually feeling much lighter and MUCH healthier from all this water I’ve been drinking and healthy light meals I’ve been eating. Tonight, I will join my friend Tabby in her idea of a good time; and my idea of a possible migraine-trigger:
hot yoga. Yes. Not just regular yoga. But the kind that you do in a sauna so that “you get all hot and sweaty and it’s hard to breathe and when you finish you feel like jello!” «says Tabby. Like I said. Possible migraine-trigger. But she knows that I will conveniently forget to roll the window of her car down in time to throw up if I do become ill from this activity. And if she’s cool with that, then I’m down. Plus it goes hand-in-hand with my detox this week, and m.o. to get my body healthy, clean, and in shape!
Mission Two: Learn the Spanish. As you all may (or may not) know, my husband is Venezolano. This also means that his second language is English. Sadly, for our entire relationship I have selfishly made sure we only communicate in this language. However, he makes knowing two languages look SO EASY. But let me tell you: its NOT. Anyway his mother will be coming to visit us in this coming August, and wouldn’t that just be an extreme case of sad (not to mention awkward) for me to not be able to communicate at ALL with my mother in law?? I just find the fact that I have not been taking learning Spanish seriously to be a huge character flaw. I always use the excuse that I’m too embarrassed (I’ve got a SAD case of ‘gringa’) and I’m worried people will laugh, but come on! Can I be more self-absorbed?? It’s time for me to put down the English-crutches, and pick UP the Espanol. Today I bought a book in Spanish. Carlos says it will help. Took me twenty minutes to read and understand the first page.
Only 508 more to go. *sigh.
