It's a new day...

...and yet, nothing has changed, LOL!

Just got back from a quick lunch at Del Taco and a visit to the post office for stamps. Work is good, no complaints about that...

Looking forward to dinner tomorrow night with my Monster!

Cheese, glorious cheese...

Just about overdosed on cheese yesterday, by choice, of course! Had a quesadilla for lunch and then went home to find out we were having lasagna. Yum. As much as I wanted to, I didn't pig out. Besides, I was so darn sleepy that all I wanted to go was go to bed!

It was Jeff's birthday yesterday so that's why we has the lasagna. April came over for dinner too. After we cleaned up, I got ready for bed and zonked out. I slept so soundly, didn't even hear the rain last night.

Let's see, for breakfast this morning, we pulled into Carls Jr. and I grabbed a large coffee with some French Toast Sticks. For lunch I'll probably have popcorn because I don't have a car and Steph is going to lunch with someone else. Isn't my life exciting? LOL...

Busy Day!

Finished the 2nd large project I was working on and it's now out of my hair. Just got back from lunch...had a chile verde quesadilla from Pollo Loco. Yum-o!

And now, for all of you Capt. Jack fans...check this out.

Whew!

Things have been hectic in my world...I'm talking about work, that is. The weekend went by way too fast, too but I did treat myself to a movie. I saw Premonition. Excellent in a strange sort of way. I liked it!

So, how are things in the food department? Ha! No change!!!

I ache!

I only took one week off from walking. One week! And I ache like I did a 50 mile hike!!! So yes, I did my 2 mile walk after work and then ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, stretched out on my bed and watched my Netflix on my huge TV.

This morning, I had oatmeal and one cup of coffee. And there's nothing else to report.

:-(

Who am I kidding???????

Lunch was rushed because I had to go to the Auto Club to pay my vehicle registration. What should have taken 8 minutes, max, took 40! I met a guy while I was waiting, though. :-)

Then Steph and I rushed to Pollo Loco for a quick lunch but there was NO parking anywhere. We went to McDonald's instead and I had a quarter pounder with cheese and a few fries. Damn.

You bet your sweet bippie I'm walking tonight!

Monday Morning Blues

Well, it's Monday. *sigh*

Had a GREAT dinner last night at Monster's house. Rachael made killer chicken nachos. Yum! Got home, got unpacked and got settled....only problem: When "9:00 p.m." came around, I wasn't sleepy. I hate daylight savings time...

It's Sunday and I get to go home today.

Let's see....yesterday I met Alex at 11:00 and we had a quick breakfast at Del Taco. I had a egg, bacon and cheese burrito with a Diet Coke. And then we went on our search for an apartment. We found 2 that we really liked but neither one of us wanted to sign on the dotted line just yet. (Following our gut instincts, I guess!)

Didn't have lunch but went to a dinner party in San Clemente and met some really neat people. I had roasted chicken, rice, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower and for dessert, cheesecake. Yum. Oh, I also tasted the most AMAZING tequila I have ever had in my life and I must buy a bottle soon!!!! I got home around 10:30 p.m. and read for a while. Oh and while I was reading I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. See, at home, I would never do that. I think house sitting makes me eat!

So far I've not eaten anything today (Sunday) but I do want coffee....gonna go search for Carol's coffeemaker.

Hasta la vista, baby.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Didn't sleep well last night....I was cold and couldn't find where Carol kept her extra blankets (if she has any!). I just had a bowl of cereal and now I'm gonna go get ready. I'm meeting up with Alex at 11:00. Yay!!

Then, around 3:00, I'll be headed to Mission Viejo because I got invited to a dinner party. I don't know anyone there....this is going to be a challenge!

I'm sleepy...

It's been a LONG day and I'm tired. Currently, I'm babysitting for my little niece. She is fast asleep and I am struggling to stay awake.

Let's see....how did I do today....Oh ya; we had pizza for lunch. I only had 2 slices. I wanted more but I was so busy today that I didn't want to get too full. I don't think I had oatmeal this morning, either. For dinner I had half a steak and a small bowl of Mexican pasta soup. Oh ya, for dessert I had yogurt. I've got a killer thirst, though.

Off to find something to drink.....*yawn*....

How Fat Can I Get In One Week?

That should be the new name for this blog.

Last night I had a turkey and cheese sandwich. An hour later I had a glass of orange juice. An hour after that I had a bowl of cereal.

Sheesh...

This morning, one cup of coffee and one piece of See's Candy.

My Review

What a moron! I forgot to post that my review went very well! Very well, indeed!

:-)

Am I destined to be a Plus Size Model???

LOL....no lunch today but I had a small chocolate cupcake. (And 3 pieces of See's candy) Great nutrition, no? Oh well. At least I'm not hungry.

I'm at lunch!

I finally got hungry at 10:15 so I made my usual bowl of oatmeal at that time.

Had 2 classes of water since then...and I'm currently munching on a few Lays BAKED potato chips. Just a few!

I'm getting my review today. Should be interesting, lol...

The enemy, it seems, it my own twisted mind!

Yesterday was THE day for a major screw up. After work, I went to Coco's. Why? Because I joined the Coco's e-club and received a coupon for a FREE slice of pie.

OK, so I figured I'd have a light dinner and enjoy my pie. I ordered a bowl of cream of broccoli soup. Surprised? Ya, me too. But I did it because Marlene and Bill gave me some awesome pills for lactose intolerance and guess what? THEY WORK! I haven't had cream of broccoli soup in YEARS! After the soup, I had the most decadent chocolate creme, brownie, pecan mixture pie and I loved it. Oh heaven on Earth....

Later that evening, everything was going great. I was relaxing on the sofa, watching HGTV and I got a craving for something sweet. Again? Ya, apparently my brain did not get the message that I had consumed a decadent piece of pie only hours earlier. And no, I didn't remain strong and ignore the cravings. I caved. I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I've come to the conclusion that when I house sit, I eat more.

At least today, I'm back on track. I thought about making some oatmeal but realized that I am not hungry....so I'm not going to eat right now. I guess I should get to work....

Until next time.

It's lunch time...

Ah, I just had a good burger. I had a coupon for a FREE Famous Star burger at Carl's Jr. What's the catch? I had to buy a large drink. Oh wow, poor me, lol... My new drink of choice is Minute Made Light Lemonade. YUM!!! So that's what I had. Oh and by the way, NO FRIES. Yay for me!

Wednesday Update

I had my usual oatmeal for breakfast today, unfortunately, without berries. :-( And that's it! I have no idea what's for lunch but I will probably run to the post office and then grab something quick. Hmm...Pollo Loco sounds good.

So not everything revolves around food...

Thought I should bring this to your attention.

A quick post...

...before I start working.

Dinner last night? Not good. *sigh* I am house sitting so I got "home" right away and wanted to eat something out of boredom. I had a bowl of Total cereal. Then an hour later, I had a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich with tortilla chips. Oh and chocolate milk, too.

Ya, I blew it last night. I decided that the turkey and cheese was just too heavy and while it tasted good, I don't want it anymore. So what am I going to do with all that turkey and cheese I bought to last me through the week???? I'll think of something. Too bad the cat doesn't like it, LOL!

This morning, nothing but one cup of coffee, at least for now. Oh, news flash: Alex and I are meeting up on Saturday to go apartment hunting. I think once I'm settled into my own place again, it will be a lot easier to go back to my "eating for life" plan. (One should never say the word diet!) :-)

OK, I gotta get to work...

What have I eaten today?

Breakfast: oatmeal with fresh raspberries and 1 tablespoon of half and half.
Also, one cup of coffee

Lunch: Turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread with low fat mayo. Herbal ice tea.

Snack: I attempted to pop a bag of 100 calorie popcorn but only 15 kernels popped. The rest had to be thrown out. Phooey.

Did I mention my throat hurts?? :-(

Frustration!

Last night, I read that many people have fought the battle against food and won by using a blog. I'm not sure if that will help me but I'm gonna give it a try. Yes, I've started other blogs in other places and never kept them up. So why is this one different. I'm not sure yet.

So, what am I frustrated about? The fact that I can't walk right now. I've been on a walking program for approximately 3 months now. It's great. I love it. So what's stopping me now? All the crud in the air from the fires. Yes, it is affecting me, even though I'm indoors. I've had a persistent cough all day and a sore throat since Sunday. I keep telling myself that I shouldn't complain but it bugs me that every time I start walking, something pops up to derail me. To compensate for the fact that I can't walk, I'm trying to eat even less than I already am. It's not working! At least today, it's not working. *sigh*
