Good morning! Aussie I'm sure your scale is perfectly accurate.
I'm going to do a Kathy rainbow recap for yesterday.
Green - snap peas and romaine. Red - cherries and a little tomato, salsa white - pistachios and rice. purple - black beans (?)
Hmmmm. Looks like I'm lacking a color or two but I really don't know how I can fit them in. My stomach seems to have shrunk a lot and I get full pretty easy. Finally!
So far I've had coffee, cherries, snap peas, pistachios and some cottage cheese. I have cucumbers and an apple if I need it for later. I'll probably have a chicken salad for dinner but I might change my mind as that is a woman's prerogative. ..lol.
I wish Kim and Rachael would check in. I miss them.
Janine, finally in the new house, huh? It must be such a relief.
Tia, slug away!...lol. As usual Judy has given great advice.
Aussie so sorry you're in pain. I love onions and I don't know how I'd feel if I had to give them up. Do you have any tums or anything like that? I had a touch of heartburn last night so I popped a few antacids then all better.
Doing good with the food so far this week although my morning blood sugar has been higher than usual. I think it's from a bit of stress I'm having over this job change. Then last night I was so angry on behalf of a good friend that I tossed and turned all night. I was wishing I could give him a hug but he lives too far away. It is so frustrating for me to not be able to give some TLC to a friend in need. I feel that way about all of you too. Sometimes a caring touch can be so much more comforting than words. I wish my arms were longer or stretchier - like Stretch Armstrong...lol.
Well girlies it's payday and I've got to fill out my time sheet - not one of my favorite things to do as it's a pain the the posterior. Then I've got to get my desk better organized with all the different forms and stuff I'll be using. Then, oh goodie - filing. YUK!
Good morning everyone! Kathy sweetheart I want to see your beautiful face again!
I did pretty good with food over the weekend. I had a splurge yesterday with an order of taquitos. Other than that I was pretty good.
Stopped at the store this morning and got snap peas, cucumbers, blueberries, cherries, yogurt, cottage cheese and water. These blueberries are so good as I haven't had any for a few weeks. I'll probably have a chicken salad for dinner. It's good to be back on the usual plan.
We're actually getting some rain today with thunder storms. There was lots of thunder last night.
You're welcome Tia. My hope is for all of us to be as healthy as we can.
I got quite the surprise when I got my eyes checked. The vision in my right eye has improved. In contact lens language it went from 9.5 down to 8.0. No wonder I couldn't see for diddly squat...lol. I don't have to wear a contact in my left eye. I had an infection that caused scaring on the cornea and I had laser surgery to fix it. Now I'm really good to go. Getting healthier and I can see. My eyes are very healthy too.
I stopped at a Vietnamese place and got an order of shrimp spring rolls and an order of pork spring rolls. Two rolls per order. Talk about a treat for my tastebuds! They're mostly vegetables so I'm feeling pretty virtuous too. Earlier today I had a couple of granola bars, some red grapes and a couple of servings of peanuts. I'll have the rest of my rolls later. Something to look forward to.
I need to drink some more water and tea also. I didn't want to drink too much before my appointment since I didn't know how long it would take.
Boy do I ever know about the chip cravings. I don't go down that aisle at the store but there are still plenty of them by the check out. Grrrrrr...... I fall into the trap occasionally. I'm glad you've found something that helps. I love crunchy foods too.
With Roh. It's you and jicama and me and sugar snap peas. ..lol. There could be worse things to be obsessed with huh? I'm going to get some jicama and chick peas my next trip to the store. And more peas and baby cucumbers too. I'm going to try hummus and jicama too. Sounds too yummy.
Oh man. I love those jalapeno poppers! I even think the ones from Jack in the Box are great. Don't worry I haven't had any for a long time.
Tia I forgot to tell you this the other day but I read that diabetes can be a side effect of lithium use. My advice is to try to eat as if you are - lower carbs. At the rate you're going with your weight loss and exercise you should be fine. There is an excellent diabetes community here on Webmd you can visit if you want to learn more. It was a tremendous help to me when I was first diagnosed with diabetes.
Good morning everyone! Aussie and Keet you both look like teenagers! I'm glad you had such fun together. When I win the lottery we're all getting together!
I've been in a mood this week worrying about my job change. Pink's post was just the ticket for me.
I have been doing pretty good with my eating. I've had a couple of hiccups but nothing too crazy. I continue to learn about myself and how my moods affect my eating. Self talk really helps.
I'm home today - took the day off. I'm going to get my eyes checked this afternoon and get some new contacts. Yippee! It's been too long. I don't know why I put off going because I do have good insurance. Too many other things to do and on my mind.
No food plan today so far. I've got some cherries and grapes. Fruit is about the only thing that sounds good. It's too hot for much of anything.
Abby, Kathy, Kim and Rachael please come and visit. I hope you're all doing well. I miss you!
Happy birthday dear Pink! What a beautiful post from a beautiful woman. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I'm getting a job change and have been trying to remain hopeful that it will be a good one for me and that I will be able to get along with my new supervisor so your post is very timely and something I need to ponder and remember. Thanks again!
