I’m not joking. Where is the tip of your tongue right now?
Is it on the roof of your mouth?
I’ll tell you why I’m asking.
Then you’ll have even more reason to think I’m the craziest person you know.
When I was in high school, some dude came in and gave us a speech on something. The ONLY thing I can remember from the whole speech is that he asked us all where our tongues were. Probably not a great opening line to a bunch of sex-deprived, raging hormone aged teenagers but he went with it.
The tongue is the largest organ in the body and therefore – according to this dude – where it rests says a lot about you and your state of mind. If the tip of your tongue is on the roof of your mouth – well then – according to him…you are stressed, anxious, not relaxed, etc. You have to actually PUT the tip of your tongue there. It doesn’t go there on its own.
If your tongue is on the roof of your mouth – you have to manually make it come down, right? He says that if your tongue is naturally down – not touching the roof of your mouth – then you are truly relaxed.
I think about this more often than you’d think. I have NO idea why. Probably because I’m always trying to find new ways to relieve stress and I can tell you that 99% of the time my tongue is up – with the tip touching the roof of my mouth. I actively try to make it come down but it never stays that way.
So where is yours? This could of course be a load of bullshit but who knows? It does take a bit of energy to put your tongue up and keep it there but it’s really hard to just let it rest down too, isn’t it?
Did you read that Kim Kardashian recently said she’d totally have sex with herself if she was a man just to see what it would feel like? First of all – I’m pissed I wasted time even reading the headline. Second of all – I want to shank her – HARD. Multiple times. Her ego is almost as big as her ass.
It’s a celebration week at work this week and you have to know what that means, right? Food. Shitloads of food. Fresh movie theatre popcorn all day every day for 5 days. Catered in breakfast today consisting of eggs, sausage and biscuits, hashbrowns, fruit and drinks. Jelly filled cakes tomorrow afternoon. It just never ends. Some would say it’s a perk. I say it’s not.
I didn’t do an update on my weight loss yesterday but have no fear – I haven’t fallen off the wagon or anything. I was however, up another ½ pound…bringing my loss for the year to just 9 pounds. I am still ahead of my schedule. I’m not upset about the gain because I know my body. I gain muscle quickly. I don’t think I’ve gained a pound in the last two weeks. I have continued to work out and do tabata drills and even the elliptical almost every day. I haven’t stopped prepping my meals and Rambo’s. I still am writing down everything I eat every day.
These are all really good healthy things and I can’t let the number on the scale take away the good in that. I’ll just keep going. I’m going to keep getting healthier anyway.
PS – my doctor appointment went well….I guess. My doc thinks my migraines are caused mainly by my lack of sleep. And once I go so many days with little to no sleep – my body reacts. That and the internal stress I carry. I don’t necessarily feel stressed but my body says I am. She gave me stuff to help me sleep and realllllly wants me to on BP meds because my BP is high. That doesn’t help migraines either.
