Well, today was a day off for my daughter, and that means, of course, an out of sorts day for me. I didn’t get to work out today, and that bugs me. I never quite feel the same if I don’t do something. My eating went OK until I made some rice pasta for my daughter and her friends. Of course, I should never do such things and I end up eating it. I had about 2 cups of rice pasta with olive oil and some goat cheese on it. Not a bad binge, but not a great choice, either. I still believe that keeping the grains out of my diet is the best choice. Eating that sort of set me off to eat some more stuff, but I got away with 1 Newman-O and about 4 potato chips. Truthfully, neither of those things interested me, and I stopped while I was ahead (after throwing down a couple of deflect O’s, too). It would be so much easier if this stuff were not in my vicinity. I never bring such stuff into the house – that’s my anti-everything hubby.
It’s been just a busy day. I’m tired, and I have at least 2 hours worth of work to do, but I probably won’t finish it today. I have been getting a page up on my business website – take a look and let me know what you think (I just added the backpack page – I know that there are some adjustments to be done):
I invented all of these products, originally for the horse industry. I am now in the process of getting them BACK into the horse industry and have to redo my website geared for that market. That, with 2 more products coming out, and working on selling into new markets, makes me a very busy person. Throw the 5 year old into the mix and it makes me tired just thinking about it.
I had someone ask me what do as far as snacks are concerned, since I basically eschew starches completely (no more cheeps for you!). Well, I snack on a cut up apple eaten with a handful of walnuts (I like them frozen) or with some almond butter on it. I eat blueberries when they are decent looking. I sauté a whole container of spinach and just munch that down. Of course, I reach for protein first and foremost. I keep meat and fish cooked and in the fridge and all times. I also like to keep asparagus cooked up, and, if possible, an artichoke or two, although artichokes are a little high in the GL for me. When I wasn’t as concerned with the GI and GL of items, I would also snack on prunes and dates – I especially like dates eaten with the frozen walnuts. When I want to snack, but find that nothing satiates me, I make a huge container of the Yerbe Mate’ and Sip Right For Your Type teas mixed together and work on that. It seems to turn the “I want to eat” switch down, if not completely off.
Good Luck! Zzzzzzzz…….must go to bed……….zzzzzzzzzzz………
