212am … yeah i’m back from work and have been on the computer a bit but I just wanted to update really fast … My dinner was really good and I had a small bowl of beans with. Later in the night I had a snack of indulgence …. fried flatbread with cinnamon sugar. It’s small, probably 350 calories. Ah well, I was hungry!
Really quick before I head out to work….
I’m having some berries/cherries and 2 hard boiled eggs and taking them for dinner with 3/4 of a jocalat larabar.
Notice that I didn’t get any iron ring in the egg from hardboiling. Yay!
Also, look at this tomato! It will be my first fruit from my mini garden!
Have a great night!
Well I just got back a while ago, cooked up some lunch, and boiled some eggs. But before I get into all of that, let me tell you about my trip!
Unfortunately today I found that one of my fog lights is cracked. I am very upset, my car is my baby and I got these from Japan a few years ago. Thankfully nothing has fallen out yet and it has just a perpendicular crack going across almost all of it without any chipping… but it is big. 😦
Ah well, I can’t fret too much about it, plus I got my insurance cards in the mail today and my premium went down 15$ a month despite the car break in I had a couple months ago. Now THAT’s awesome.
Anyway, I took a Kombucha along for the ride. The mango was really nice and refreshing.
I went to Beauty Brands first and got a liter of shampoo for only $12! I love their annual liter sale. I picked up this organic moisture shampoo:
Then I headed over to whole foods, bypassing the grocery, just in case they had cheaper at WF. Unfortunately I was out of luck in that dept, but I was going to make a stop at target anyway so I figured I’d get them there. On the way over, I snacked on an Odwalla bar I had picked up at WF:
It was really yummy! Tasted like a healthy nutrigrain bar! And much better tasting!
I stopped to get cat food and dog food, and then stopped at Target to get eggs and dark chocolate chips. I also ended up getting some cherries.
Here is the loot from my shopping trip:
In the salt shakers I have placed some ancient orangic sea salt I got from whole foods.
After I unloaded the groceries, I cut up some sweet potato and put it in the oven. While waiting, I started my hardboiled eggs:
First I filled a pan with a layer of eggs and cool water that submerged them.
I then set them on high heat until they came to a rapid boil.
I took them off heat and put a lid on for 17 minutes. While waiting, I eat my yummy sweet potato fries drizzled with olive oil and sea salt.
I then submerge the eggs when done into ice cold water. They cool for 10 minutes.
Afterwards, they can be peeled or stored in the fridge. I peeled one to sample:
I may or may not have been a little aggressive when I peeled this guy… <.< Oopsy! But boy did he taste GOOD. WOW!
And now, I’ll leave you with a funny picture. Zelda still thinks she can fit into this tiny carpet covered … hole.
OH! And if anyone is wondering how Bill is doing, he looks like he is happily fermenting away! Go go Bill!
Good morning everyone! I can’t believe it has been almost a whole month since I started eating cleaner, and while I haven’t lost any weight, I feel a lot healthier. I would still like to drop 15 lb in the next 2 months, but if it doesn’t happen, no biggie. I’m just kind of listening to my body for right now, and I’m satisfied with that for now. I just need to drink more fluids and exercise more. I work so much and I’m always on my feet for 8-10 hours at a time, so it is really hard to get motivated working out more than that! Plus this week and next I have been scheduled for 5 hours overtime! Two weeks in a row with 45 hours can be draining! I’ll get through it though, because the money is nice. I just wish I got more out of it! Joy, respect, happiness … Oh well, it is temporary. 2 more years and I’m free into the world of living life!
Anyway, past my rant, I have a list of things I want to get done today:
*Beauty Brands-liter sale shampoos (coconut milk/oil?)
*Hyvee – eggs, dark chocolate chips
*Whole foods-chia?, Fage, a couple bottles of Kombucha, coconut
*Get cat and dog food
*start some overnight chia pudding
I work tonight at 6pm until 2am. Blah!
Breakfast today is 1/2c oatmeal with pineapples, strawberries, coconut, and also blueberries heated in. With a glass of lemon and white tea!
I have it unsweetened with only some cinnamon in it, and I used almond milk. So the only sweetness is coming from the fruit, and I like the way it tastes, even without sugar.
Off to start my day!
