Bladder Control And Fun With Tampons

Day 271 — Bladder control commercials are as ubiquitous as the ones for erectile dysfunction and tampons. None of which are helpful to me personally. But it seems like those are the only ones I see on TV lately. I keep thinking how the universe must be telling me something.

Then I found an old (unused) tampon in the center console of my car. Since I am way past menopause, this is probably more an indictment on my lack of personally caring about cleaning my car than some karmic occurrence. I plucked it out and started laughing out loud. Maybe that was what I needed. A good laugh at myself. An embarrassing, shame spiral inducing moment to remind me to not take myself so seriously.

This day off, without too much responsibility, allowed me to have a fun lunch with friends, take my brother on a shopping spree for new his new apartment, and get a couple of errands done…for me.

Funny. I totally forgot about the fight with #Equifax trying to convince them my brother is not dead. (Don’t ask. It is too stupid to attempt to explain.) But other than that…it was all good. Stress free for the most part. But you see how I forgot about the bummer parts of the day? I’m working on my glass half full, half empty, always refillable perspective…and I’m feeling good about my progress.

At lunch we were laughing about how our hopes and dreams have transmogrified from lofty to simply wanting backyard lighting. So silly. But true.

Tomorrow morning my feet will meet the stairs, as my certified trainer and registered dietitian, Erik Bustillo has vowed to pull me back from the vacation weight loss ledge.

Reality. I’m working on readjusting mine. #bladdercontrol, #tampax, #erectiledysfunction, #noworries, #staycation, #100lbs #goals,
