Good evening my fellow friends. This is your Moti Girl checking in for my weekly update. What's cracking people? This kooky Bay Area weather is driving me insane. 59 degrees in June? Are you kidding me? Aside from the weather, I am feeling quite cranky because I have absolutely nothing to do. I didn't realize how busy my life was the last five years with school and now that that chapter of my life is finally complete, I feel barren. I should punch myself in the face for sounding so ungrateful but I didn't realize I was going to be feel so lost. Now what? Everyone so kindly keeps reminding me to enjoy myself and to just relax. I don't think I'm wired to relax. Do I even know how? I have a plan, well at least I think I did, but right now everything seems to be moving in slow motion. It's only been a week and I feel so incredibly suffocated by all the time that I have? Does that even make sense? I need to find a hobby and things to do to take up some of my idle/free time. Any suggestions? I downloaded the Instagram App on my phone and have had a lot of fun taking pictures recently. An amateur photographer I am not, but I am definitely enjoying playing with this unique little App. (This one was taken at Half Moon Bay on Memorial Day weekend. I think the picture perfectly encapsulates my stormy temperament right about now). Find me, my screen name is msrehreh.
Happy Birthday Lady
This last week has been good to me. I celebrated my girl Amina's birthday last week (Happy Birthday Woman!) with some lovely ladies and much needed "me" time . It's always so therapeutic to hang with just the girls sometimes. We all need to take our Mommy and Wifey hats off for a few hours and just let our hair down and be enjoy the girlfriend hat for a change. The laughter, the jokes, the sharing of stories the yummy food and dessert made for a memorable night but also reminded me of the importance of sisterhood. That night I realized that it's so easy for all of us to get lost and lose our sense of self as we navigate through the different chapters of our lives. Being with other women and exchanging/sharing stories about our fears, challenges and stressors really allows us to not only engage with each other but highlights the simple fact that we aren't alone and our issues are not unique. It makes it easier to know that there are people out there who share the same crazy talk that swims around in my own head. Okay well I think I have hit the cheesiness quota for the day with this post. I might sound like an after school special, but I stand behind my epiphanies, as corny and cheesetastic as they may sound. :)
So another highlight for this week has been a couple things. I gave the food truck CurryUpNow a second go (the first time I had the burritos and was not a fan) and was pleasantly surprised by their yummy Kathi Rolls and deconstructed samosas and I also got to indulge in some TreatBot goodness. These two trucks park regularly in Sunnyvale near El Camino and Remington on Tuesdays evenings. You should check them out. CurryUpNow is your good old Desi food and Treatbot is ice-cream with a twist. They have a karaoke machine there and if you dare to test out for vocal chords and manage to score higher than 90, then you get yourself a free dessert and a very excited audience that will cheer you on with much vigor. It's definitely something entertaining to experience.
I also purchased thanks to an awesome graduation gift card my very own Zumba Wii game. Woo Hoo. Now I can Zumba whenever the hell I want, forget trying to get to a class at 24 Hour an hour before. I excitedly peeled it open and threw it in the game console to discover that I was in dance heaven. It came with a nifty belt that neatly holds the Wii remote. The moves and music are exactly the same as the class, and a good workout was had. Anyone wanna come through and join me at home? Feel free to hit me up.
I know this post was a bit lack luster but you know I can't have it all. Well here is my weight this week:
I gained 0.2 pounds
Well, I'm not feeling too bad about this week. I know I could have probably done a better job with calorie control, but I was also recovering from being sick last week and 0.2 pounds is really nothing. So my friends... that's all for this week.. until next time. You know you love me XOXO. :)
