This morning I have concluded that I own a bathroom scale that is as worthless as a pile of crap. If I can stand on the scale and lift my toes and get a different reading, that indicates to me it's crap. If I can get off and on 3 or 4 times in a row and get a different reading each time, that indicates to me it's crap. If I have to keep adjusting the dial on a daily basis so it stays on 'zero', that indicates to me it's crap. It told me this morning ('It TOLD me', like its alive or something!) that I'm 136 pounds. I like that number so today I'm buying it's bullsh*t reading because I want to believe its true. I'm going shopping tonight for a real
scale and for groceries too because yesterday, which was suppose to be grocery day, my routine was rudely interrupted by an ice storm and terrible road conditions so I scooted home as fast as I could before the storm hit.
I came home to a mess of a kitchen, got pissed off at the people who didn't clean up after themselves, ate whatever was leftover in the fridge (see menu below) and promptly sat on my ass for the rest of the night, surfing the net, searching for a new car to buy. (mine was written off by insurance last week after a spectacular explosion blew the engine into a thousand little bits and pieces.)
Anyway, nothing good came of yesterday which included work stress
(deadline was Friday and we've missed it!), fear
(ice storm and dangerous roads), anger
(what a mess!), resentment
(why am I
expected to clean YOUR
mess?) and sadness
(woe is me, I have no car). A very emotional day for me....but nothing a little fudge bar and peanut butter couldn't fix!
Again, broke the rules, no nothing except a coffee with lf milk and splenda to go.
lf mozza cheese stick
Lettuce with leftover chicken breast, tomatoe, green pepper, cuke, celery and vinaigrette
1/2 c 1% cottage cheese with a couple of green pepper strips cubed and tossed in for added crunch
Dinner: ...this is truly horrific...
3 large mushroom caps stuffed with spinach, onion and lf cheddar
Large bowlful of the stir fried veggies left over from Tuesday's dinner
Yup, that's it.
1 skinny cow fudge bar with 2 really incredibly large tablespoons of natural peanut butter and a dash of splenda
Late Late Night Snack:
I can see that I actually ate my snacks after skipping out on breakfast. I also came home with a headache last night so not eating probably contributed to that along with the stress I was under. I hope today is a better day and so far, a reading of 136 lbs has started it off on the right foot!
Signing off in, well, let's say mediocre spirits! Is mediocre better than fair? How about so-so? 60-40? WHOAH! Low and behold the computer guys just delivered my new laptop! OK, this certainly ups my mood! I'll say it's 70-30 at this point...!!
