Thank you for returning. If this is your first time here, thank you for coming.
So I hopped on the scale this morning and I was/am (who knows) 203lbs. Yes. Ok. So to my credit, this is the type of number that would lead me to stand outside the CVS with a fistful of dollars and a mind full of dreams. I don't even know how I can swallow for fear of gaining more. However, I told you that writing heals me. Instead of racing to the gym to beg their forgiveness, I just took a deep breath and thought about blogging.
I knew that I would be here soon filling you in and I knew that you would be waiting. I don't know if you were, but I have to tell myself that.
It took me a while to get to breakfast because I was pretty upset. I didn't have an appetite. While that should be a blessing, breakfast is not one of those meals that you want to skip. Actually you should not skip any of them, but breakfast is the king of all meals.
I made a smoothie. I didn't know the calorie count for everything, so I used my 1/2 cup rule. Nothing aside from maybe sugar or salt in a half cup is bad for you.
1/2 cup of the following:
fresh cut pineapple
frozen blue berries
a handful of green pea shoots
two squirts of green tea extract
The green tea extract is a really expensive little bottle of something green. The only reason I have it is because Dr. Oz said so. I tend to believe everything he says. From this point on, if I use some idea of his, it will be known as WWDOD. I used the green pea shoots because I feel a smoothie is incomplete without some green leafy addition. I prefer baby spinach, but I don't have any on hand.
For lunch I had a salmon burger with sauteed onions and green peas, yes a 1/2 cup. I am disorganized, but when I create a rule, I follow it.
I had a bag of pirate's booty for a snack.
For dinner I am going to have sweet potato soup. The sweet potatoes are boiling now. It will only take me a sec to make the soup, because my Magic Bullet is ridiculous like that. The cool thing about the soup is I can freeze leftovers for later.
You can pretty much freeze anything for later. I would not freeze meat, fish or poultry. It just seems gross. I don't eat meat and poultry (anymore) so that eliminates that little debate. As far as fish, its so delicious, I NEVER have leftovers.
If you are wondering about the soup, here it goes:
Two boiled sweet potatoes, peeled and tossed in the bullet with the following:
1/2 cup of water
1/2 vanilla soy
1/2 V8 splash
salt and pepper to taste
little pinch of nutmeg
Blend and drink.
I'm probably going to toss in some pea shoots, seeing as I need to use them up.
I'm trying very hard to keep a food log. The problem with that is that I am so dang disorganized, I always lose the log. Right now I am using a little pad that my mom gave me. She is a HUGE FAN of the $0.99 store, so if I lose this I won't freak. In the past, I've bought actual notebooks, pretty ones...but like I said, I lose them. I think what I need is a damn trapper keeper that I would strap to my back...but I'd probably lose that too. Stay tuned for the fate of the little log. This time Friday I will be reading off a ragged sticky note.
This part of the blog is for mental health:
I received an email today that sent me to pissivity (s/o to DA) level 10. My first thought was to go out and get a veggie pizza and a bottle of ciroc, and enjoy a weepy eat&drinkathon. I thought about blogging tonight and realized that that is not something that I would have been proud to share-at least on the first day.
I'm not saying that you won't ever read something terrible, but I am saying that thinking of you reading will always inspire me to think long and hard about my actions. I promise to never lie to you. In actuality, this is a real case of lying to you, would be lying to me.
I intend on succeeding. Thank you for your support.
I love me for losing, I'm on my way!
