Well today I'm feeling a bit better about myself, a step in the right direction. Last night I cried on the phone to my mom while on the ferry which is good to do. She has always been an unconditional support for me, despite some crazy decisions I have made in my life! I am lucky to have her as my best friend. Then I hung out with a very old friend and watched Firefly and ate pizza and cinnasticks and drank cheap Franzia wine. It was lovely and I am treating it as an emotional time out.
Today! I'm pretty happy with how today has gone. Not SB-perfect and not highly productive, but I'm happy with it. Woke up and had a glass of milk and some leftover pizza for breakfast.
Drove home and had a good lunch, watched a couple of my TV shows. Monday is a VERY HOT day on TV. Lots to watch. Busy busy busy. Got my coupons together and swung by Albertson's and Top Foods. Hot buys of the week: 5 pears, 2 mango, 2 heads cauliflower, 2 bunches broccoli, celery, 26 cans of chipotle pinto beans for chili, 2 spaghetti squash, 8 tilapia filets, 2 jars PB, 12oz of almonds, 2 cans tuna, and 2 16oz jars EVOO for just $25! Woohoo! Did a 20min interval walk around the neighborhood. Did the dishes, made a beef bolognese over spaghetti squash to eat this workweek, made dinner and watched more TV! I need to stay up a few more hours so will try to do some more chores while I finish watching a couple more shows. (seriously...there's like 7 hours worth of shows from Monday....I'm a tv-a-holic) Still no news about the house but I'm reaching a zen-like state about it.
B: slice pepperoni pizza, 2 cinnasticks, cup of iced tea, cup of milk
S: 1.5c raw veggies on drive home (did NOT eat the Reese's I had in the car with me, yay! Reminded myself: "you're not even hungry. And you ate ALL that pizza!")
L: salmon, WG rice mix w/ spinach/onions (i really feel like I had some other veggies here but can't remember what it was......)
S: 1/2 bag of gummi raspberries (warned ya it wasn't a perfect day) almonds (too many)
D: tilapia fillet, WG rice mix w/ spinach/onions, 2c. spinach salad, small mango (omg i LUV mangos!)
S: crunchy PB (way too much and yes I know I already overdid my nut allowance earlier. Didn't care)
Hunger level: not hungry. Will probably have some yogurt later, maybe snack on some more raw veggies since I'm gonna be up til 4-ish and will need another snack.
Prep level: Next week is another 4-day workweek. I am going to go to a really strict P2 for the next week to try and break back out of the oversize starch serving/candy habit that I've fallen back into. Most of my choices have stayed good but the candy has gotten bad and I've just been eating too much starches at a time. I plan on cutting all of that out, having just 1 fruit a day, and none to one small starch serving a day. I have the beef bolognose over spaghetti squash for lunches and I'll probably make a pot of turkey chili to have for dinners along with spinach salads.
Exercise: doing ok. Walked a lot today. May do some P1 exercises from the book, they are actually really good for my back issues. No gym this weekend, not gonna worry about it tonight.
Happiness: Satisfactory - 6 out of 10.
