Mood: Ahhhhh....Why am I procrastinating my lesson plan?
Music: Noise of new air purifier - friedrich C-90A - yummy.....
It's been far too long....too much happening & husband is back to PC games instead of Xbox - oh no....looks like I'm going to have to arrange some sort of scheduale b/c not blogging for this long is driving me nuts!!! So much happened....had such a good weekend......where to start....well,..........
I've come to the conclusion that although I listen to member supported radio stations, try not to listen to what big media or the President tells me & love myself & my neighbors for who we are......I'm still a shallow person. Sometimes......I can't help it. I know most people will say "what the h*** are YOU worried about" but I am.....swimsuit season is coming up & I have gained weight. Not what I was when I started the diet but almost. I've been BTDing this whole time but slowly, more AVOIDS have been creeping into my diet. & I do notice when I have them. I'm gassier. My lemon still does wonders but this slow build up of vinegar here, a dorito there, IS adding up. I should be fine with it since for 80% of the time, I'm eating healthier that I was at this time last year but.....let's face it. I'm shallow sometimes. I was brought up with a certain parent that always wanted me to look my best & they were raised in a period of our American history where looks for a woman were everything. So, it rubbed off on me. And society & High School were no help either. Funny how I'm more critical of myself than other people though......good thing I don't watch those annoying commercials anymore......but.....I'm getting off subject.
So.......................the goal? Eat more beneficials!!! Fix more food at home! Stay away from Taco Bell & school lunches!!!! These are my February Resolutions!!! Who needs New Year's Resolutions - everyone's forgotten them already by now anyways. These "February Resolutions" are going to stick! I'm going to give in to my shallow inner workings b/c I know that BTD will actually make me healthier in the process of appeasing my dementia for losing 2 inches off my belly :-D
*Things for AB's losing weight to concentrate on:
Fish like tuna & salmon
green veggies like collards & broccoli
dark chocolate only!!! (No more pepperidge farm cookies!!!)
*Things for AB's losing weight to avoid:
wheat (even though it's a neutral, it adds to the inches)
Corn (not even 1 tortillia chip!!!)
chicken (haven't had that in ages)
Pepperidge farm cookies (Damn you, Sausalito!!!)
If you all still like me, even though I'm not the renegade hippie you thought I was, I will write another blog as soon as I can tear Carlos away from his Ultima Online :-D Happy eating! Remember, bathing suits aren't everything! People will love you for who you are, not how you look.......so why am I not taking my own advice?!?!!?!?! Ahhhh - Contradictions!!! The pain in my brain! ;->
