A Weight-y Wonderful Day

Howdy there and Happy Hump Day! How are you doing today? My moods have been pretty damn stable lately, and I’m beyond thrilled! I just *adore* summertime because the sunlight and heat always help my mood.

I’ve been doing better regarding feeling too full after eating – I’m sticking to smaller meals more frequently, and it seems to be helping, so I’m very happy about that. It really helps with any binge/purge urges.

I had a Chobani Flip in Peanut Caramel Satisfaction along with a banana and a drizzle of honey for breakfast. Coffee with Salted Caramel Mocha Creamer (shit, that stuff is good) to drink.

Around 10:30, I had my usual honey crisp apple with cinnamon, almond butter, and granola. An apple a day, right? Salted caramel tea with stevia and cashew milk to drink.

I spent my morning walking Mr. Boomer, making dinner for Luke-creature, and browsing Free People and Anthropologie. I think I’ve figured out what I want … I’d like these AKA Washed Leggings in navy and army. They’re super long, so they’d be perfect for my 5’10” frame. I need more pants, so I think they’re a great buy for me. I might throw in a top or two as well, but I’m on a Target kick for cute tops right now, and I can get so much more there for the money than at Free People. I’m *considering* the You’re The One Wrap Top and the Around The World Top in Olive though … and I’m still eyeing that Brahmin purse too, so we’ll see what I end up with! πŸ˜‰

For lunch today, I hard boiled two eggs and roasted some cauliflower, broccoli, and carrot … easy peasy, if not a bit boring! I served the veggies with some hummus, ranch dressing, and salsa, and I ate the eggs with some S+P and a bit of spicy mustard.

Luke and I went to Planet Fitness and lifted weights – I can lift 310 lbs on the quad press, so I’m highly impressed with my progress. Luke snapped a few pics of me doing some arm weights, so I thought I’d share. Can you tell that I just *adore* my Wonder Woman shirt?!

We came home after running an errand, I drove to see Boomer, and I came home to an abundance of kitty cuddles going on between Caprica and Luke! Lots of love between those two. πŸ˜‰

At 4,Β I had a nice big pink grapefruit with some salt.

After I ate my grapefruit, my stomach turned sour and unhappy, and my head started to spin. I’m curious if it was interacting with my Latuda (I’m not supposed to eat grapefruit on it … yes, I did anyway today as I love grapefruit). I had some kombucha to settle my stomach.

Dinner tonight was a turkey burger with pepper jack cheese, some heirloom tomato, avocado, lettuce, and a potato bun with some sweet potato rounds. Ketchup for dipping.

After dinner, I was uncomfortably full and in some digestive distress – digestion is a b*tch for me when I eat meat-y, carb-y things like a burger, but I just have to keep getting used to it. My meal was a bit bigger than I originally thought, methinks, so I’ll try half a patty next time.

My Mom sent me a pic of her and Pieter together in Seattle … they’re such a cute couple!

I’m currently watching Expedition Unknown, am digesting my dinner, am drinking mango-infused water from Pak-a-Sak, and am enjoying my peaceful night. I have to check on Mr. Boomer one more time too!

Hope you’ve had a lovely day, my friends!
