|« Still going... Day 13.||Now is the time... »|
I was too busy to even realize Heidi left and then Paul stops blogging! His new position is definately a deserved one as the first "Hall of Famer." If you haven't read Paul Buckless' entries, please do. They are filled with good information for those of us with the A antigen in our blood and more than pleasurable to read.
My "busyiness" has stemmed from having company stay this past week and getting the wedding invites out. Oh yes, I'm having a wedding even though I'm already married. We eloped in early February. No one knew except one friend (the witness) So, once the families found out and got over their shock, everyone's demanding for a big hooo-haaa. And I have always wanted a fluffy wedding dress so.....we're getting married, again in October. Should be fun. I'm very much looking forward to it and our honeymoon in the Bahamas. (yippie!) But it's a lot of work, especially since my husband and I are the one's putting it on. So, after losing the address labels I ordered 2 months ago (must be with those socks that the dryer eats) I ended up doing the envelopes by hand. It really wasn't that bad and the effect is quite lovely. I know Martha Stewart would have been proud. :-)
So,.....what have I been eating.....not as healthy as usual. My lemon water every morning, of course or I'm sure I'd be as bloated as a puffer fish :-D But my vegetable intake has been less than satisfactory. What with coming home exhausted from breaking up fights at school and all my free time spent on wedding invites and logistics; food is, unfortunately, the last thing on my mind.....until my stomach starts growling and then I'm too distracted by hunger to cook much of anything.
Interestingly, this morning I forgot to take my vitamins and I reallly felt it's effects just 20 minutes ago. I noticed I was grochy and nothing in the fridge looked satisfying. I immediately took them once I heated up some semolina pasta. At first I wasn't sure I would eat it - there's no premade pasta sauce in the house, tomato or the forbidden cream sauces (a favorite before BTD) But then I decided to squish 2 cloves of garlic, fry them up, and add them too the pasta with lots of extra virgin olive oil. Delicious! Who would have known something soooooo simple would taste so good! I know, I should have cooked that bunch of collard greens sitting in the fridge to go with it. THAT would have Really hit the spot! But at least I didn't have a cheeseburger. It's all about maintaining. And until things calm down a bit....this will just have to do.
