Hello everyone!! My two good things today were theat i took a 30 minute walk, and... I was putting together some halloween cand treats to give to my neighbors, and I didn't have any!!!
here's my menu for today, as best as i can remember:
B: two eggs w/ pepper; glass of milk
s: part of a green pepper.
l:cottage cheese, veggies i think, glass of milk
s: string cheese, 1 carrot stick ( i forgot it's not allowed on ph1), celery w/ pb
d: chicken rubbed w/ cumin w/ salsa and pinto beans, Glass of milk. Also had another glass each of milk and water somewhere along the way, I think, and i'll probably drink another glass. I feel thirsty.
I see what everyone means about beans filling you up- those beans sure did it for me! I didn't quite have my bowl full of stuff, and I wondered if just what i had would fill me up, which it did. Good, because i had exta beans, so i can have them tomorrow.
FOr desert, i'll probably have a peanut butter cup or two.
Just one more day, then it's ph2 for me!!
every month sb online does a challenge, which i am joining for next month. will write more of what it entails as i learn it myself. one thing, you have to weigh yourself every day for four days (to establish a starting weight). After i found that out, i started thinking. The thought came to me that sister cox might have a scale, so i called her, and, yeah, she's letting me borrow it for the weekend (for the challenge, which starts monday). Will also look at thrift stores tomorrow for one.
Returned movies, worked on food stamps application. Called Dr and left message to get her to write a note to go along with application. Dr never called back. So we'll just have to keep calling and bugging the receptionist. I HOPE she isn't not giving the Dr the message just because 'she doesn't think i need to stay home and take care of my husband, and that's why i can't work'. What does she (the receptionist) know. she's only seen my hubby a few times. I've lived with him for eight years, and I am his sole driver!! Just a few weeks ago, i had to take him to the dr (which is 6 miles one way), five times- Tell me. how the *%#@ am i supposed to be able to do things like that and work full time!?! (which is why we're applying for food stamps, because when we get the Dr.'s note that says i need to stay home to help tygh, we will qualify for food stamps).
IF the receptionist (or anyone else for that matter)thinks i should be able to work full time and Help Tygh, i'll be happy to let them walk in my shoes for a month, and then see what they think!!
I also went and got my perscription today
[for anyone else reading this, i also use this as my regular journal, that's why there's so much that's not sb related. sorry for the little rant in today's journal.FYI, my husband is disabled (Cerebral Palsy), and has had a chronic cough since Labor day, hence why he's gone to the dr so much since then.]
