What are your plans this weekend? I'm going on some long bike rides and returning to my fave yoga studio.

I have tracked the last 130 meals on Noom, but today I just skipped it and enjoyed a nice, big, home-cooked meal with zero guilt.

I should also add a daily routine of something small that brings you joy, eating nourishing foods, setting boundaries, and getting enough sleep.

New therapist, fam/friends support, Insight Timer app, say not to stressful situations (work, mainly), and this truly unexpected connection with M is helping me finally lift me out of chronic depression.

In response to a confession. 3 weeks later we're still texting. One of many learnings from him, is that I'm learning how to co-regulate with a man which is starting to help to heal my distrust of men. I'll call him "M" says I keep surprising and delighting him. I don't think it's like a crush now, but friendship or mentorship which feels much less pressure. Just deeply this guy's company and our unexpected online connection. When I stayed for his Live music session, it was when I was leaving my job which really cleared up my mental energy. I had even saw his Lives even before that, but didn't stick around because it felt too chaotic/anxiety and already felt too much IRL, I guess. Even since I left my job, I've been having unexpected connections with strangers.

In response to a confession. I ordered a sewing pattern that pretty closely mimicked the Heaven dress. But I had to make a bunch of changes to it. I got rid of the waist seam and turned the whole gown into princess panels. Changed the location of the zipper. Had to re-draft the entire overlay, which I NAILED and I am really proud of. I did use the commercial pattern for the overlay as a starting point, which helped a lot. Now, I'm on to the embellishments on the overlay. This is proving to be really difficult because the original dress looks like it's done if freaking freehand. I am not that artistic, I can't do that. Here is the dress I'm trying to recreate. http://make-it-count.org/fun/sewing/dinner2.jpg

I think I would like to email him to say like hey, I enjoyed meeting you guys or something like that. How long should I to wait before I email? I'm really rusty on dating.

Coming off an intense therapy session (LOTS of tears), I knew I had to get out town asap for bday. Drove to favorite beach to have lunch at my fave roadside joint. While there, I found myself in 3 genuine spontaneous conversations with 3 different groups - we all found at least one thing in common! I was on fire conversationally which is weird for mostly introvert. My fave was the guy (J) with his Dad. J sweetly asked firstly, if he could sit at my empty table, then we all started to chat, found out about 4 cool similarities between us. Then many jokes I was laughing the entire meal, I said how much I enjoyed their banter back and forth between 'em, I even made some dorky dark jokes which they got right away. Then I did something I never ever do, I asked him for his email! Seems like were vibing and we all parted with goodbyes. It felt like J had a longer gaze, but so hard to tell if there was curiosity or interest. I just truly loved every minute with them which was so unexpected!

This evening walk ended ending up making my day. I went over a community garden, saw a couple who proudly gave me a tour of their plot of veggies. Turns out the woman works at a restaurant I’ve been wanting to try. I'll go there tomorrow for lunch and give a nice tip. Later I moved over to bball benches since I was still feeling a lot of stress, was not quite ready to go home. I began to tear up thinking about the accumulated stress maybe years worth being held in. Sitting at the benches, I began thinking about how I missed the simplicity of shooting hoops with family as young girl. Suddenly, a high schooler appears out of nowhere with a basketball. I asked if I can play and he was so cool with it. Just wrapped up games with him and another older friend that joined later! Imagine seeing a 5'3 Asian woman with two guys just shooting hoops. To go from pain to pleasure in 60 seconds is something I won't forget. Life always shows up for you in the most unexpected ways. <3

I gained 20 pounds during lockdown. I've lost seven. I can do it!
