My days are pretty much the same. We have learned to live a life of repetition. It's been a couple of years now since Neil and I have gone to the store, mall, etc... together. Forget movies and trips. This time in our lives are devoted to his Mother. Staying home is the only thing we can do now. I've never been one to be able to sit still long unless I'm in a full fledged depression. That's changed.
All those muscles I had, I had some serious strength, have turned to fat and cellulite. My energy is at zero level. I have never had to watch my diet. Seriously, I had such a high and nervous metabolism that I ate anything and it fell off. If I was depressed or upset before, I didn't want food. I was never a nervous eater. Well all that has changed now. I eat all the time. Pure junk to make it worse. Lots of coke, hardly any water. If it's bad for you I'm eating it. And I am so uncomfortable. I haven't weighed lately but I'm sure I'm at least 25 lbs overweight. It's time for a change. We stay up all night and sleep most of the day. That means I do most of my eating at night and go right to bed on all that food. It's nervous bored eating.
I'm one of the lucky ones. I don't have any real addictions. I've never smoked, don't use drugs and can drink in moderation. To be honest I can't remember the last time I drank a beer or mixed drink. But I'm not kidding, Coca-cola and the dentist (because of coke I'm sure) has made a fortune off of me. I really can't stand the thought of running out of coke and knowing there won't be any in the house for the morning. I even know that in the past when I've committed to exercising I craved more water and less coke. When you stay away from coke for awhile even the food tastes better, I crave more fruits and vegetables and actually the coke doesn't taste that great anymore. Yes Coke as in Coca-Cola is my down fall. Well I am a chocolate addict too but I could probably give that up easier than coke. What can I say I'm a child of the Coke generation.
Have you ever been to the World of Coke Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. It's been years since I have but it's got some really amazing stuff. And have you ever spent anytime looking at old coke ads and memorabilia. They have some of the most beautiful ads. It's simply iconic America to me. The above ad is a Dutch poster that translates to say to say "Me Too!"
Well there is no real point to the story (this is not a sponsored advertisement). I just start on one subject and it runs into another one. No moral to gain from this but it's my squawk box and that's my squawk. Thanks for listening.
Smiles and hugs...Tracy
