New Emoji Coming!

If ever there was a reason to upgrade your iPhone to the newest iOS, it surely is the launch of new emoji to use in our everyday texting. I have my favorite emoji to use. The always make the conversation fun, even when you’re pissed. There are so many good ones! You’ve got your basic set of emoji like hearts ❤️💛💚💙💜 and faces 😀😃😄🤣😍😛😒😎😜🤢🤡🤠 to name a few. I use all of them in the course of everyday conversations.

There are times, though, when you can’t find the one you REALLY want, so you have to improvise or combine emoji to bring it on home. So I love it when new emoji launch to make texting even better! Apple just announced that the newest iOS update to iOS 11 will be coming out soon and it will have a bunch of new emoji. Here are a few of my favorites!

I personally can’t wait for the wizards, vampires, and fairies. I also am excited about the dumpling and other food ones. I’m also very interested in the fact that all the new ones come in different sexes (including gender neutral) and skin colors. They’ve really done a great job of being inclusive. Check out the merman/merwoman and all these fun ones below:

And there’s the Stephen Colbert emoji. LOL

So be on the lookout and upgrade when you see them announced so that you van enjoy all the new goodies and you won’t get the black square in your texts because your device can’t see them.See ya round!

Time for an update…

Nobody said it would be easy, and I sort of new that going into things.  But this whole being fit thing is one hell of an adventure.  My weight has gone up and down and all around but mostly steadied out over time.  My current weight is 233 and I’ve been pretty happy with my results overall.  I’ve MOSTLY had to deal with my thoughts about how I’m doing or not doing.  Just when I think nothing is working I lose an extra pound or I start to feel better about myself.  The mind is a tricky bitch to manage so I’ve mostly just tried to not sabotage it all based on some loser thoughts that inhabit my brain.

ImageLast week I felt like I sprained my ankle.  I came home from a festival and my ankle was swollen and felt crummy.  I waited for it to go down on it’s own but it didn’t really do that.  I went to the doctor and they agreed that I had sprained something.  They told me there’s nothing I can do but keep it wrapped, put less strain on it and keep it elevated.  This was such bullshit…I thought to myself!  How in the hell do I start exercising and just start to get my body working only to suffer from a dumb thing like a sprained ankle?  But, as with all things, it turned out fine.  I took a week to relax and really let my ankle and leg recover completely.  It worked…I’m back up and doing what I do best. (By the way, the toenail is black because I painted it that way…long story but ask me about it if you really wanna know.)

I’ll keep you posted on how things are moving…and they are.  I’ve been feeling great and though I struggle daily with my thoughts about failure and eating right, I’ve found a blog that I love reading and listening to.  His blog post on willpower is so cool that I’m posting a link here to get you to read it.  Dean Dwyer is my new hero.  It’s like he’s telling my story about his health and well-being.  You can read his blog post about willpower by clicking here.

Thanks for catching up with me and don’t forget to read Dean’s Blog!  Thanks!
