(Jenny New Point Oh?)

So I'm starting a new health kick this week. Yesterday I began wearing a pedometer and was able to log more than 15K steps. Wow! I didn't even exercise, just went to work and the grocery store. We'll see what I do today!
 
Also, I'm kind of over giving up carbs because it was just leading to thinking of them as "forbidden" and would lead to me binge eating all night long. So this is my menu for today:
 
Breakfast: 1 slice of pumpernickel with 1 tbsp of all natural peanut butter
apple and banana slices (5.5g of fiber. Pretty sweet!)
 
Snack: raw green beans and hummus
 
Lunch: same as breakfast
 
Dinner: Quesabeanydillas - basically quesadillas with layers of garbanzo beans. (aka chick peas aka what's in hummus)
 
I'm kind of looking forward to eating this stuff, where as I wasn't looking forward to chicken or meal bars. I was doing Atkins wrong. Actually, what I'm eating now fits for Atkins phase 3 or 4 so it's not like I'm actually off the diet entirely. I've just stopped eating the fake food and the same boring thing every day.
 
I'm really looking forward to starting up Aqua Zumba soon. Also? I'm looking forward to trying to go to Church again. I have all these cooking supplies now so I could bring dinner stuffs. I think my faith crisis is finally subsiding. I notice I go through this every election year. All the hatred that spews from the highly conservative so-called Christian mouths terrifies me to no end. I become so frightened and it makes me re-examine my faith, which I find I do pretty well on my own. But it doesn't make me the most effective or strong church member, which I regret. Hey, we all struggle with doubt and fear and if you can't turn to your chosen family then what is there? Anyway, I feel like I've found my personal way again. I just hope that how I live my life shows the Christ in my heart and not the Santorum or Phelps. I love my atheists and am for gender and marriage equality just as much as I love praying and taking communion. I'm a hippie, sort of. Whatever.
 
Now that I'm moving ...
 
Once I'm settled I would truly love to have a "house" warming party. I fear that no one will come because a) I've never been a host before and b) I say no or make no shows to people's parties. Should I have a housewarming party? Should I? Will people come? What should I do for a housewarming party anyway?

About


Jen
Hi!. I'm Jen, fiance to Greg, college student, and future crazy cat lady. I love makeovers, decorating, collecting random facts, trivia, playing show and tell, camp movies, shopping, libraries, random singing, random dancing, snuggling, and loafing. Oh, and watching Glee.



Greg
Greg has been my partner in crime for nine years. I've known him since high school; he is my soulmate and best friend. He's an actor, a playwright, a poet and works in data entry. We spend most of our time laughing hysterically. We're thinking about getting married sometime this decade and adopting our first cat sometime in the next few weeks.
