Today I thought it would be fun to post about some things that you may or may not know about me. That even my family and friends might not know.
I don’t eat bread. I actually try to stay away from all things carbs. Pasta, bread, tortillas, chips, crackers. But I really stay away from bread. Pretty much just for healthy reasons. It causes me to bloat like crazy and too much gluten gives me that chicken skin on my arms.
I work out and stay healthy for myself. I don’t do it to look good for my husband, although that is a plus. I do it so I feel good about myself.
Growing up, elephants were not my favorite. They were not my thing until my grandma passed. We share a birthday, I took care of her for a long time in my later teen years and we were very close. Now elephants have a different meaning for me and I love them.
I don’t like animals. I like farm animals that don’t require constant love and affection. They tend to need more work though. But dogs and cats who are always wanting you to pet them and play with them, are just not my cup of tea. Right now, my favorite animals that we have are the bees. They don’t want me to touch them at all.
Alcohol and I have a love-hate relationship. I used to get really sick because I would always over drink. I had given it up for a while and drank only on weekends before. Then there are times where I let loose completely and don’t have a care in the world for how much I’m drinking. But I always tend to be thinking or over thinking about my drinking. Do I do it? Do I not do it? Should I just stop forever?
I have an issue with my weight. Yes. The skinny girl who works out has an issue with her weight. I just never talk about it. I will do a crash diet just to do it. I will drink protein shakes and not eat because I don’t want to gain a pound. I have done it for so long that I can not consume more than 1000 calories in a day without feeling sick. You don’t have to be heavy to have an eating disorder. I don’t want to call it that, but when I talk about it (to myself) that’s what it sounds like…..
Writing is my thing. Some people like to draw, run, workout or crochet. I like to write. Write people letters. Write my blog. Write in my journal. Someday maybe I will write some crappy book that no one will read.
My hidden talent might be organization skills. Maybe that’s not a hidden talent. But I’m good at it. I like having a place for everything. My office doesn’t show that because it’s kind of a mess right now.
I have skin like duck feathers. I let things just roll off my back. That wasn’t always the case and every little thing affected me but as I got older I got wiser. Is this (whatever it is) really about me? Is it going to affect me long-term or short-term? Is it something I can control? Do I even care all that much? Do I know this person well or do they know me well? Are we family? Family loves me no matter what, so I’m good there. I don’t care what I do. Other than that, It’s not that important. I try to pass this wisdom on to people I meet.
