Conscious Catholicism

I ddi really well last weekend. It was my first weekend out, at a club with smokers around me. I have two smoking triggers, whenever I’m having coffee (particularly at coffee houses), and also when I go to a club or bar and have been drinking. I keep reminding myself why I’m not smoking anymore, it’s better for me (and others) and because I feel so much better without the smoke. There are a few folks in my life that feel like I’ve taken on too much. I have stopped smoking, changing my diet and starting an exercise regimen. My goal is to get down to 200 by the end of this year. I needed to change the way I was eating anyway, diabetes and heart disease run in my family so it’s really trying to balance the odds in my favor. I’m carrying around an extra 40 pounds that I shouldn’t be.

I’m going with a friend of mine and a buddy of his to the Mariners game later today. this morning I’m going clothes shopping with Mike and Maria.

Just two more weeks and I’ll (and Mike) be in the new house on the hill. I am too excited for words. I’ve been spending much more time up on the hill, doing the shopping and stuff. Mostly because shopping is an almost religious experience for me (food shopping). I know it’s kind weird, but I get my kicks harmlessly. I think that I’ll be doing most of the shopping at the Safeway, they are less expensive the QFC, which I like more. I like Safeway , and they do have a mega store up on 14th here in Seattle, and it looks like they’ll be starting home delivery after the 28th. I like home delivery, some beefy guy bringing me my groceries.

well, time to shower and get ready to start the day. Maria will be here at 9am.
