Totally showing my age there. I googled what Colin Hay meant when he wrote this song and this is what I found:
When we spoke with Colin Hay, he explained that this song could relate to a relationship with a person or a relationship with a place. He was living in St. Kilda, which is part of Melbourne, and felt he was going to leave there soon. Says Colin, "It's about leaving somewhere and leaving your comfort zone. You spend a lot of years trying to get something - fame or recognition or getting to a certain point, and then when you actually achieve it, there's always a certain amount of fear that comes with that, a sense of loss of control, because all of the sudden you're not in control of a situation any more, there's other people involved, it gets bigger and bigger with much more stress."
That makes alot of sense to me. Change is scary and especially getting out of your comfort zone.
This weekend was mostly un-eventful. We don't do a big Oscar party anymore like we used too. It's really hard when people have to go to work the next morning. We did have our friend John over and Chris's brother David. Our usual Sunday night gang for whatever is on tv that night. (Currently we watch The Walking Dead and next up will be Game of Thrones!) And of course, I thought about almost quitting on Saturday but I'm glad I'm back together with my head on *relatively* straight.
Food wise, I've been really on point this weekend with the exception for Friday night when we went to a Mexican restaurant, but I still was within my calorie range albiet the high end... Hoping that I can get a run in this afternoon or a little gym time in before we have to go pick up Devyn's car. It's FINALLY ready from the auto repair shop. So thankful that is finally finished and tired of taxi-ing her around again. Send some good vibes that maybe it won't be as expensive as we are fearing.
Oh! I did also have a couple of NSV's to celebrate! I can cross a thing off my goal list. Saturday I went to an LSU basketball game and an LSU baseball game. I sat comfortably in the seats without the armrests digging into my sides! At the basketball game I did feel squished though but only when getting up and down. Once I was actually in the seat, I was fine. So I am going to ceremoniously cross that off in just a few. Also, I did notice today when I was getting ready for work that my thighs aren't rubbing together when I walk around un-clothed. TMI I'm sure, but hey, it's a victory in my opinion!
Peeked at the scale and it said 212.6 this morning. Hopefully it will remain there or a bit lower. Hoping for a "whoosh" this week. I could really use a scale victory now.
