Friday 7-29-11

I am not doing super good this week with the eating healthy.  Today with my headache, I ran through Burger King for dinner.  I got a chicken sandwich with fries and a diet coke.  I haven't done this in a bit but I just couldn't heat up or cook anything today.  I am heading back to bed soon.  I think today is a almost sleep all day day.

Kathy is coming to town tomorrow.  I can't wait to see her.  I hope my head behaves tomorrow.  Usually, the head isn't bad 3 days in a row.  I will be able to rest until it is time to pick her up.  I miss her.  thank goodness for the phone.  We talk quiet often.  We also email back and forth.

I hope to do a bit better next week.

Late Start

I woke up extremely late today.  I had Chipotle for dinner and I plan on having a soup or something like that if I am hungry later.  I am very tired, as usual.  I will need to go and get some more fruit later this week as I am almost out of grapes and other fruits.  since I know have good tummy medicine, I am able to eat fruit again.  I am happy about that.

So far, I am doing okay, not great at eating healthy.  I have healthy food in the house, but I do still find myself going through the drive through of the fast foods, but not every day like I was.  i also went to Tim Horton's to meet my friend, Wendy this week and I did pretty well!  I did not have a donut!  I didn't even want one.  I am happy about that.

I hope for another week of focusing on eating healthy.  I am sort of happy with how I am doing, i could be doing better and that is what I plan for this week.

grocery shopping in the extreme heat

Grocery shopping is so different now that I am working on eating healthy.  I did get any fruit because I still have a few plums and grapes left so when they are gone I will get more fruit.  I went in for a few things, but I ended up spending over $100 but that is okay, other than some fruit and maybe milk or bread, I won't need to go again for a while.  This Sunday I am hoping to remember to get the Sunday paper so I can get some coupons and start collecting them for the next shopping trip.  I, however, will not become a crazy coupon person, I just know that they always have the soup I like so that is what I want.  I am happy with what I bought, pretty much everything was healthy.

All in all, I think I have been doing better with healthy eating since I started this new blog.

It is Hot Outside!

It is very hot outside today.  I had to go out briefly to go to the bank and to get my hair washed.  It was just so hot.

Anyways, Kathy will now be able to post now that I finally got her the proper link so she can sign in and write a post.  I am excited about that.

Kathy and I have been friends since we were 3 years old.  We went to the same church, same elementary, junior high, and high school.  We were in band and choir together most of the time.  In elementary school we were often in the same class, which was pretty cool.  I was lucky enough to be one of the maids of honor at her wedding.  It was so awesome.  I get to see her about once every month or so, sometimes once every two months as she lives 2 1/2 hours away from me.  I spend a lot of the holidays with her now that I am on my own.  Both of my brothers live far away from me so I don't see them much besides, one is really mad at me right now.  I was told not to even contact him, so I am not.  The other brother doesn't hold holidays at his house.  I enjoy going to Kathy's parent's for the holidays as Kathy and her family are there.  We have so much fun together.  Christmas was a blast with watching the kids open presents.  It was so fun because they had such a good time opening their presents and then playing with them.

Kathy and I have decided that we both need to make a change in our lifestyles so that is the purpose of our blog.

I do hope you are having a good day!  Stay cool and out of the sun.

July 15

It is hard to believe we are in the middle of July already.  wow, like that is just crazy.  I don't have any real plans for the weekend except a cousin is stopping by to pick up what she ordered.  I will see her in the afternoon tomorrow.

I had cereal for lunch today.  i slept it because I was up late reading Harry Potter number 5.  I am going to read them all again to get ready for the newest movie that I will see in a few weeks when Kathy is in town.

For dinner I will go and Chipotle, veggie style.

better eating days

Yesterday and today were definitely better eating days.  I wanted something sweet yesterday and I instantly headed to the grapes!  I made a bowl of grapes and felt so much better eating them than I did eating the box of cookies.  It felt really good to know that I didn't even have to think about the choice, I just did it.  Today I went to Chipotle's and got one of the burrito bowls.  I always get more veggies on it than anything else.  I am glad about that.  Once a week, I will go and get take out, but other than that, I will eat here at home where I have plenty of food to eat that is healthy for me.

All in all, the grape incident really has made me very happy.  I hope to continue this pattern.

oops, not a good food day

I went to Walmart this afternoon to pick up my coumadin medicine and bought a few other things.  I bought a package of new Oreo cookies, the new type.  I had planned on eating a couple and then giving the rest to my students.  Well, they are gone.  I ate them all.  Not good I know.  I shouldn't have bought them.  They weren't that good either.  I ate them because they were there not because I liked them because really, I didn't.  They didn't taste that good.  I think next time I get an urge for cookies I will pull out fruit because really, grapes would have tasted much better than these ones.  I have had a rough week and this makes me feel even worse.  I will do better tomorrow than I did today.  I haven't much to eat but I am not hungry because of all the crap I ate this afternoon.  I won't repeat this that is for sure.  I just won't.  My tummy isn't feeling very well either because of the crap.  I plan to go to bed early because I just don't feel good both physically and mentally.  I hope tomorrow is a better day.

it's July already?

Wow, it is July the 5th already.  Where did the month of June go?  I have no idea.  So, this weekend (Saturday specifically) I had a taste for something really sweet and I was out of fruit.  I managed not to go to the store to get anything junk food wise until Sunday when I needed milk.  They had this round chocolate chip decorated cookie for the 4th of July.  It looked really good, I mean really good.  I figured I had been doing pretty well with eating healthier, making sure I ate enough veggies and fruit, that I would get it.  Oh my gosh, the frosting is so sweet it is awful.  I have eaten some of the cookie that is not frosted because when i took a bite of the frosting part of the cookie, it was horrible.  I mean, a teaspoon of sugar would have been better.  Basically, I wasted $8 and won't do it again.  When I want something sweet, I just eat some fruit.  I don't generally keep junk food in the house because then it would get eaten more often than I should so I don't buy cookies and stuff like that very often.  I know better because I don't eat just one or two cookies, no, I would eat 8 to 10 cookies which is not good for a person so I just don't buy it.  I have no idea if I have lost any weight or not because I am not weighing myself.  That sets me up on a very slippery slope that goes very bad very fast so I am not doing it.  I am trying to focus on eating healthy because ultimately, that is what I need to keep doing.

I do hope you are having a good day!
