Things it took 35+ years to learn
- Eat before taking medication, unless otherwise stated
- Your phone camera is a lifesaver when it comes time to remember stuff
- No one gets extra points for not asking for help
- I enjoy watching grown men get beat up, sacked, and tackled. Football. I love it.
- Move the tampon string out of the way before you pee.
- We are the common denominator in all of our relationships.
This was such a great article about why we are the way we are. Even if you hail from a completely normal, functioning family, surely not everyone you encounter or have a relationship with is the same. It may have resonated with me more than even I’m capable of understanding. More to come.
More Fascinating Things
I must confess. When others told me they were practicing “mindful eating”, I thought it was just another buzzword, a clique-ish term, a passing fad. Big eye roll. Same goes for “intuitive eating”. Of course I’m intuitive! I know if I don’t eat soon, I’m going to get angry! How’s that for intuition. But, lately, I haven’t been restricting my carbs or cutting out fruit or doing any of the other things I believed worked for me previously. Just a few weeks ago, I mentioned using the MyFitnessPal app and I’m happy to report it’s (still) really useful.
There’s even been a few instances of completing my PT routine at home. Necessity only. The booty bands in the photo above are worth every penny of the $10 I spent. I’m using them for squats, deadlifts, and knee rotational exercises, but the options are limitless.
In light of my upcoming birthday, the learning curve will – hopefully – never cease. But, if/when it does, my final piece of advice is this…Unbuckle the seatbelt before attempting to exit your car. I’ll be here all day.
I ask you –

One thought on “In All My Years, a memoir”
My advice is simple: Plan for tomorrow, but live for today.
Intuitive eating sounds like another trendy marketing buzzword. Somebody is making money on it. Another fad, like step aerobics. Or Atkins dieting.
“Influencer”. I hate it. It’s basically somebody who found a way to make money while being unemployed or being funded by someone else. I can be an influencer, but I’m too busy working and parenting. I know I sound old. Get off my lawn.
