Hi there! How are you doing today? I’m just up to the usual by checking on Mr. Boomer today … no gym today because Luke had a stomach and back-ache, and I admittedly was too lazy to go by myself (womp, womp). But tomorrow I shall go with or without my hubs!
Breakfast this morning was two eggs scrambled with S+P and half & half, plus two slices of Dave’s Killer Bread (the thin sliced variety) with butter and strawberry jam. I’m dialing back my carb-y and very filling oatmeal for something lighter today in an effort to help my digestive system, and so far, so good.
My usual Pacific Rose apple with cinnamon, almond butter and a bit of granola was consumed around 10:30 ….
Lunch was a turkey burger with pepper jack cheese and ketchup on top of a bed of romaine, roasted carrots and broccoli, and some Annie’s red pepper dressing. This was a bigger lunch for me, but I was hungry, and it really hit the spot. Tomorrow I’ll try for a smaller lunch, I think, such as half of a turkey burger, but it’s fine for today.
Calliope was keeping Luke company on the bed this afternoon while he read his iPad and rested his back …
My sister Jenny wanted to go out to eat and go shopping, so we went to Chili’s. I ordered the Loaded Baked Potato Soup … … and for my entree, I had the Quesadilla Explosion Salad (yes, I took a bite out of a quesadilla before taking the pic, sorry if that’s gross af!).Yes, this was high calorie (i.e. it was 1100 calories according to the menu). Yes, I’m struggling with it. No, I did not purge. Yes, I’m learning to *deal* with it, as hard as it might be. I’m proud of myself tonight for handling this high calorie salad well. I figure it’s not going to harm me at all, so no harm, no foul in my book.
In other news, I saw a Wonder Woman top at Target, and I told Luke about it … he asked how much it was, and I told him … he pulled out his credit card and told me to go get it! I bought two Wonder Woman Tops and a pair of shorts for $23! Wonder Woman has always been my spirit guide, so I’m thrilled with the new movie coming out and with the subsequent abundance of WW clothing.
I ran into an old friend tonight, and he was super sweet. He told me that we needed to go to a bar and get a drink sometime … I politely agreed, not wanting to blurt out that I don’t drink anymore (I just feel silly bellowing it to the roof-tops, but there it is). He asked me what I was up to, and I lamely replied that I’ve become a bit of a gym rat (not untrue) … I always feel awkward telling friends about my actual situation – that my days are often based on my moods and management of mood as well as my attempts to eat healthily, and that I lead a pretty boring life compared to most. I’m not ashamed of who I am, but I’m very boring. I’m not in school, I don’t have a job, I’m just, well, plain ol’ white bread. But that’s OKAY! I’m not complaining as I’m ultimately pretty happy with my life.
Now I’m off to clean up the apartment and to sip on some hot tea while hanging out with my kitties. Here’s to a beautiful tomorrow, my friends.
