Oh HUH UH No! { and The World at Large }

In September ima be in the city where Isaac Brock lives, but he won't be there because Modest Mouse is on tour.  You may not see me for days.  I'm going away to sulk now.

The World at Large

Ice-age heat wave, can't complain
If the world's at large, why should I remain?
Walked away to another plane
Going to find another place, maybe one I can stand
I move on to another day
To a whole new town with a whole new way
Went to the porch to have a thought
Got to the door and again, I couldn't stop
You don't know where and you don't know when
But you still got your words and you got your friends
Walk along to another day
Work a little harder, work another way
Well, uh-uh, baby, I ain't got no plan
Well I float on maybe would you understand?
Going to float on maybe would you understand?
Well, float on maybe would you understand?

The days get shorter and the nights get cold
I like the autumn but this place is getting old
I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast
It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most
The days get longer and the nights smell green
I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave

I like songs about drifters, books about the same
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane
Walked on off to another spot
I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want
Did I want love, did I need to know?
Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

The moths beat themselves to death against the lights
Adding their breeze to the summer nights
Outside, water like air was great
I didn't know what I had that day
Walk a little farther to another plan
You said that you did, but you didn't understand

I know that starting over is not what life's about
But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth
My thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth
My thoughts were so loud

And that, my friends, is FREAKING GENIUS!

Sandi, I think i stayed up and read your blog from start to finish. I have been amazed at your weight loss and percentage of fat you lost. Would you post what you eat on a typical day? Just curious what you eat all day. Your photography is amazing BTW. THANKS

Wow, thank you! And yes, I'd be happy to post my eating habits.

I usually eat breakfast around 10 or 11 (i'm just not hungry before that). B'fast is normally either: eggs, cottage cheese, or a hamburger patty with melted cheddar

Lunch: a piece of fruit if i'm in the mood, or some salad. If i'm feeling particularly lazy or busy, i just grab some low-carb chocolate and a couple vitamins (smack smack!).

Dinner: Todd usually makes dinner...some sort of meat with veggies. We've been big into stir-fry lately.

We indulge on weekends now that we've lost the weight we wanted to lose. (Todd has lost over 50 lbs. since May).

It's strange to me to eat so much meat and protein. I was vegetarian for 10 years. Being low-carb feels sooooo good! I feel healthier than i ever have before.

Now mind you, when i first decided i was going to lose my excess weight, i did a ketogenic diet for about a month or so which consisted almost entirely of MEAT MEAT and more MEAT with a little cottage cheese on the side and some nuts thrown in for fat. I took fiber powder and flax seed (ground) mixed into protein shakes.
