Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Never doing THAT again.

It’s 3:30 and I just got back from church. Where to start. Charlotte picked me up at 10:30 for 11 mass. She wanted to talk about what to expect, specifically about the intimacy of the setting. She informed me that there would be about 13 people there , that everyone was Chinese, and that they were nervous for me to attend. (F word.) I should also know that people pray in tongue. (Holy shit.) I had heard about people praying in tongue but had never heard it and quite frankly, never want to again. I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but that shit is SCARY. Really. It gave me goose bumps and it felt like the scene for the perfect horror movie.  We ended the first Mass with a good 10 minutes of tonguing.(?!) Well I wasn’t tonguing of course. My prayer consisted of, “Please lord make this stop.”  One time I tried to make my own noise and roll my tongue.

Around 12 something I was ready to get out of there. Low and behold, lunch was served in the basement. Lunch was actually really nice because everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcomed. Then around one, I was informed that we’d now head up to bible study. Are you freaking kidding me??? I sent Len 400 texts saying, “COME GET ME NOW!”, “I’m not kidding. NOW!” and  when he didn’t answer the phone or respond to my texts, “Are you trying to punish me for going to church? I’m going to kill you. Help!!”  They might have been a little dramatic.

Around 2:50 he arrived and I graciously excused myself from bible study.

Quite the experience.

“Kill Shot!”

Len and I had date night planned so we saw Date Night. Despite half star reviews (literally), we decided that Tina and Steve are both too funny to make a horrible movie.

We were both pleasantly surprised and laughed tons! We saw some similarities between them as a couple and kinda cracked up at the roles. The humor in that movie is my kind of humor so I really enjoyed the one liners. “That’s a kill shot.” I wasn’t even chewing gum'” SO FUNNY!  Now if you’re looking for a proper action flick, you’ll be disappointed. If you’ve seen Date Night, what did you think?? I’d love to hear some of your reviews.

I’m doing something this morning that I haven’t done in FOREVER–going to church. I met a woman at boot camp who attends a non-denominational church so she’s taking me. I attended a Catholic church growing up and found it so boring. I didn’t buy into much of what was preached. Then the whole perverted priest/sex scandals pissed me off enough to close my mind off to religion as a whole. For years now I’ve wanted to find a church that wasn’t boring or excluding. I want a church that really speaks to me and holds my attention. A good choir always helps. I’m ready to welcome faith back into my life so let’s hope this morning goes well. No pressure, though.

After church I’m  going to drink my face off with some Peanut Butter and Jelly Cocktails. I kid, but how good do they sound?

Sandra Lee gave me the recipe– Equal parts Raspberry vodka and hazelnut liquor with a splash of red grape juice. Holy hat!  I would do some serious damage with those puppies.

Weigh in went well this morning so I’m moving in the right direction. I MUST go for a run sometime today so the rain better take some breaks.  I currently don’t have gym access because I froze my membership to save money while doing booty.

Enjoy a wonderful Saturday!
