I believe I'm feeing better mentally because I am feeling better physically and I started taking a writing class. It's amazing what a reading list and a 500 word writing assignment will do to uplift my mood. Another factor to my blues fading is that the horrendous, humid, hot weather seems to be over. (fingers crossed) I am so traumatized by this summer that I could skip fall and go straight to winter.
As the title of this entry suggests I am in maternity clothes already. I had high hopes of following Giselle Bundchen's footsteps and refrain from carbs and exercise. But my 1st trimester cravings included root beer floats, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs and the occasional jar of pickles. In order get through my morning I needed a bagel and cream cheese and then two hours later an egg salad sandwich and an Arizona Ice Tea. C'est la vie. Instead of Giselle's footsteps I am following Heidi Klum's steps and I bought a couple of items from her collection "loved" - when I get bigger I'll splurge on an item or two from her "lavish" collection (it's a tad more expensive)
It is taking all my energy to try and enjoy the moment and live in Philadelphia whole heartily. I still miss Los Angeles. I re-fresh perezhilton.com like 5 times a day. Every time I see a picture of a minor celebrity in a juicy couture sweat suit with a matching pair of fake boobs, I sigh. I know I should think all that stuff is so disgusting but I don't, I just miss people watching in Beverly Hills or the Grove. I guess I'm remembering LA with rose tinted glasses.
Finally I just signed up for Gweneth Paltrow's website Goop.com. Honestly the recipes she posts are simple and good. The other stuff like best restaurants in the world...and anecdotes about dinner at close friend Mario Batali's house are a bit envy producing. (a feeling i don't want to have)
