Let’s see how fast I can post an entry. Since its 7:17pm and I haven’t exercised. And I’m supposed to go to bed at 8pm the night before work…
But I had to share a few things with you all. First, I actually ordered my sewing table! I am so excited. I had a few questions, so I called their 800 number. And I actually got to talk to the guy who designed it! So if I have any problems there is an actual english-speaking person I can talk to about it! Plus its made in the USA. That’s kind of nice these days.
Next, I actually got a good part of the rug drawn on the canvas. You guys don’t know what a victory this is for me. The main reason i procrastinated so long is because I really didn’t think I could do it. But this morning (after my good cry,) I wrote a list of the things I wanted to get done today, and I got every single one done, except exercise. Tabata intervals, here I come…along with maybe a few pushups etc.
The last thing I wanted to share with you was a new food adventure I am starting. Vicky offered to fix my food for me for 5 days, to see if it would make a difference in my weight. She has a little healthy gourmet food business at the gym. The food seems like ‘California Cuisine’ maybe. I agreed to it not so much to see if I would lose weight, but because it would force me to try some new adventurous foods that I haven’t tried yet. She worked it out so I can get the food on the days I work (I am working 5 out of the next 7 days, yuck) which will give me 2 days off inbetween to get a fix of my own regulars, like my beloved cottage cheese and fresh fruit and my homemade yogurt. But I am looking forward to this. She has fixed things like chicken chutney roll-ups, edemame, a millet salad with chicken and apple, soba spring rolls with ginger-lime dip, a blueberry smoothie, and lots of other goodies. It all looks good to me, just not my usual fare.
Except for not doing so well in fitting my exercise in these past 2 days, my food intake has been amazingly under control. Even with the added stress, I really didn’t think about eating to relieve it. Maybe some things are changing…Oh, yeah, I wanted to tell you about my lunch. I roasted a bunch of green beans (probably a pound) and piled them on a plate, and I was thinking, that is ridiculous to have such a large serving. And then I thought, in the olden days you would think nothing of having a pile of french fries that size. So I went ahead and took them to eat, along with 1/2 cup of my homemade yogurt and some cherries, and I ended up munching down all the beans, and was too full for most of the yogurt and cherries, so I saved them for a snack in the afternoon.
I probably won’t get to post for a while. Be good boys and girls while I am gone.
