A new week after a long weekend.

Well blogger’s it’s Monday after a long weekend, a long binging weekend. The scale hasn’t budge in a month I’ve been at the same weight 159 for about a month now which annoys the hell out of me. So I’ll start you all off with Friday, my very first acupuncture appointment and the reason why I’m starting acupuncture is because I need to stabilize my moods. Now my Acupuncturist as soon as she went through my chart she knew exactly what was wrong with me. (It’s very interesting actually; I may even get some books on Chinese medicine.) There are five elements when it comes to Acupuncture and they are:

Wood (gallbladder, liver), Earth (Stomach/Spleen), Fire (Heart, Small Intestines, Pericardium, and Triple Warmer), Water (Kidney/Bladder), Metal (Lungs/Large Intestines)

I’m mostly Wood which is a bad thing and it’s even stronger than my fire. I have a lot of anger and resentment in me and for that reason is why I have uncontrollable mood swings. There’s a lot of Yang in me and we need to do a few treatments in order of it to balance out yin.

There’s a link for more information on it. Which I’m glad (despite my hatred for needles it wasn’t that bad.) I went to it and decided to give it a try. My acupuncturist is right if I had of gone to the Westernized medicine route they would have wanted to put me on medication instead of finding the cause root to the problems. My diet needs to completely change (clearly we knew that considering I’m over weight…) but she told me my main meals need to be Breakfast and Lunch NOT Dinner. I need to eat a lot more soup (because my body is always cold) I’m not a fan of soup and I think she means homemade soup not store bought……and not having dinner be my main meal is going to be a hard one to get use to. I also need to make sure all my watered veggies and meat are organic and I need to eat 5 small meals a day which are to be the size of my index and thumbs together in circle. She said my best friends should be Brussels sprouts and turnip, as well as hummus. (home made hummus) My next appointment is Friday.

I got a speeding ticket yesterday, which I giggled a bit when the cop pulled me over. Normally I would have been out right pissed, but I thought it was funny. I still find it funny, I’m going to go fight it to get a lower payment and no demerits. Today was weird, everything is slow, I’m slow physically I wasn’t in my own rushiness today like I am every day I just slowly walked into work. Slowly took my time getting into my uniform and slowly walked myself up to my desk. Maybe the acupuncture is having some weird affect on me, maybe it’s all in my head? I’m never like this though and my supervisor came up to me telling me about something and he repeatedly asked if I was okay, because something was off with me. I wasn’t all in your facing arguing about whatever it was he was telling me. I was like hmm okay.

Charming and I are going to get together Wednesday and hang out, what we’re doing? I don’t know yet. I’m sure I should start thinking more on that since its two days away, or it would be nice if he just planned something so I didn’t have to haha!

I’ve decided to QUIT insanity, there is no motivation what so ever to do that and just thinking about doing it makes me not want to do it. So I’m not going to do it and find other ways to motivate myself. I think this week I’ll attempt 3 days of working out. Not too much and not too little.

Have a Happy Monday!

    I’ve hear wonder with acupuncture : hope it works for you!

    And don’t worry, it was a long binge-ish weekend for me too. I’m even kinda glad it’s over!

    Take care!
