Dinner last night was grilled chicken and shrip with brocolli and cauliflower. It was really good. I think the shrimp was a tad overcooked but they tasted good.

DH walked the dog and I stayed and baked. I baked a flan chocolate cake thing for work for tomorrow (Wednesday). It has to chill overnight so it will chill two nights.

Tonight is my two year anniversary. I think DH said he wanted to go to Olive Garden, I'm ok with this as I eat lots of salad..without the dressing or very little of it. The entree will be eaten tomorrow for lunch/dinner.

I snuck out at work and bought a 'cotton' annivesary gift. DH was saying he wanted a new bathing suit for vacation, so I bought that and a shirt to match. I also wrote him a sappy poem, so it will all be good.

For some reason, work is crap this week and everything seems to be due at the same time. Maybe it's just because I won't be here next week.

I will walk the dog.

B: blue berry bagel with cream cheese

L: ham and swiss sandwich, cheetos, grapes

S: fruit gummies


Have a great night!

Gross post to follow so don't read if you get grossed out... and this is my life!

So last week we had the girl. I spent the week playing chauffer driving her to camp and DH to work and trust when I say this does get super old.

Wednesday I left work early to get my hair cut and piddle around the house, I did have to leave to go pick the girl up from camp and get the DH. When I picked the girl up I noticed a peculiar smell, that which I haven't smelled in a very long while. It was the period smell. I had a uterean ablazion done in 2012 and gladly to say I do not have a period, this procedure was a god send! Anyway I didn't say anything, thinking Ok, we have had this discussion and she will surely take care of things. And it dawned on me that she said she didn't feel like swimming on Tuesday, so yes I deduce she is having her period.

Later that evening, after the little girl used the bathroom, my DH just happened to go in there afer her and he must have smelled the same thing. And bless his heart (this just makes me love him all the more) He asked her, are you having your time of the month? she replies no. He says, well ok, I'm smelling it and I don't see any trash, are you flushing the pads down the toilet? She again replies NO, He says, well, please don't ever do this, it will clog the pipes and we would have to call a plummer out. She replies OK and that conversation is over. 

So Thursday and Friday come and go, and Friday she goes swimming and then her mom comes and picks her up Friday evening and a big sigh of relief was had by me.

On Sunday I start doing laundry and get finished and mention to my DH that the girl only had 2 pair of panties in the wash, surely she didn't just wear two pair all week. I wondered if she was throwing them away, so DH and I go into her room and find all kind of dirty clothes and the nasty stained panties. I so disgusted with this little person, it is hard to not yell and scream at her. I even asked her to bring me all her dirty clothes, apparently she just brough the ones she thought I needed. So, so mad!

Saturday we go on vacation. I am happy to be away from work BUT I am dreading the long drive. I have been stressing over vacation and not really counting calories.

I haven't been eathing god awful which is a good thing, so I can safetly say I probably will just enjoy vacation and not stress over food. I'm not going to pig out, but I'm not pulling out the phone and logging everything either. My mom will see my weight gain and will let me know all about it.

Have the house to clean, my mom is coming and she will let me know about how I don't clean very good either so lots of cleaning to do.

I will be 49 next week, so I will have a mission to not be fat and 50! I feel so old.

WickedCurves on 07/19/2016:
Wow I would have been soo mad. You would think she would have done her own laundry if she was worried about the stains or thrown then out so gross ugh. Anyways glad to hear my mother will bother me even when I'm 49 :-( I'm almost 32 and feel like a child because she hates diets and hate fatness ugh can't win. Hang in there that's great progress

Horn_of_plenty on 07/19/2016:
Little girl is embarassed and having a hard time coping with life changes.

You have to help her out.

You have got to talk with her and help her.

Teach her when to change the pads....


Sending you hugs. xoxo

Horn is right. I've been there. It's so hard. Please be patient and kind.

We went to the book sale and bought DVDs go figure. We walked the dog and had the turkey burgers. Had more calories because of the donuts. 2148.. BAH!

Wednesday - we had tickets to see a play at the Oberlin summer fest - Anne of Green Gables - it was packed and hot and we didn't have very good seats and it was not the normal type of play we usually see so we didn't sit through all of it.

I left work before noon and went and had my hair chopped off. It is shorter than I like, but it will grow back and it is cooler now that it isn't on my neck.

B: toast, iced tea

L: tuna, cottage cheese, grapes,

S: gold fish

D: chicken ranch wrap and I ate some french fries

went to the play and lef tearly. Got home and washed the girl's camp shirts while she walked the dog.


Tickets tonight to see James and the Giant Peach - these tickets we had to pay for so, boring or not we will stay. I read the book years ago and hope the girl likes the play.

work is crap!

B: donuts...

L: tuna, cottage cheese, grapes

S: balanced breaks

D: some kind of pork...not really wanting pork for dinner.

Have a great night!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/15/2016:
sounds like an awesome play to see....i loved the book also!

looks like you are eating well. donuts do suck....make me hungry like 30min to 1hr after i ingest one!

Picked up the girl and then DH - headed home to a noneventful evening.

Grilled tilapia with kale salad. Fresh strawberries and blackberries with a maple whipped cream - very good. Total calories for the day 1327. We walked the dog and road bikes around the block. Fat @sses and bike seats do not make a good pair. Slept ok, but up again with the dog. My dog runs outside and barks at stuff. My greatest fear is that he will be sprayed by a skunk again and run all through the house and into my bedroom after it happens, ergo I get up with him and head him off at the door...just in case. I stayed up for about 1.5 hours and went back to bed.

B: fresh fruit parfait, with granola

S: banana

L: tuna, cottage cheese, crackers

S: balanced breaks

and to the jackhole who brought the donuts, I really hate you...not one but two

D: turkey burgers

book sale tonight and that is all, must get a walk in! Have a great night.

Saturday DH went to work and the girl and I tried to do errands. I got my e-check done and tried to get my driver licence and car registration renewed but so did everone else in Elyria. I drew a number 91 and there were only on 60. I said never mind I will try to get back during the week. Crazy busy place that DMV. The girl and I hit a few garage sales and then went to the Super K that is closing so they had tons of sales.

B: toast with peanut butter

S: small shake from Baskin Robins

D: steak, grilled corn

Sunday I went shopping with the girl and DH. This is camp week for the girl and she needed to make sure she had the kind of food she wanted to eat for lunch...me too. I got home and did the laundry. DH and the girl went get new propane tank.

B: bagel with cream cheese, vanilla iced latte

L; pizza from Sams

D: grilled chicken, grilled zucchini, squash and corn - I loved grilled vegetables

This morning I was up really easy. I was up with the dog for about 1.5 hours, but I slept good and had a few awesome dreams...very vivid and i swear I could feel everything! crying, laughing, etc.

B: berry parfait (black berries, strawberries, bananas) with vanilla yogurt and a 1/4 cup of granola = 227, iced tea - 5

S: banana

L: tuna, cottage cheese, carrots

S: balanced breaks

D: some kind of fish

Have a good night.

I'm glad it's Friday! Though this was a short week, I feel I worked the usual five days.

Dinner last night was grilled chicken and a brocolli, cauliflower, quinoa pilaf, that was tossed with some lemon vinegrette, which was very light and refreshing.

I walked the dog around the block. Usually I go in flip flops or sandals, I actually put on athletic shoes and could feel a difference in my back, so I will be wearing my athletic shoes for the walking.

No plans this weekend, just errands to run - Echeck for my car, new licence and car registration, dog nails clipped, may to a few garage sales. Thinking about a hair cut, haven't decided about that though. DH works, I will have the girl. And next week is with the girl so will be transporting her to the Y camp. At least I know she likes it.

B: toast, iced vanilla latte

S: protein sweet and salty bar

L: left over chicken on flat bread, freeze dried peas, fiber one bar

D: I have no idea - DH said we were going out!

AM working on a new plan for breakfast, looking to cut out my iced vanilla latte and free up those calories, also the protein bar.

Anyway, have a great weekend! T-15 until vacay! Really looking forward to the time away.

Good idea giving up the latte and protein bar.

thinkpositive on 07/09/2016:
Your grilled chicken dinner menu sounds good. I know what you mean about flip flops- I have been wearing mine too much & not great for my feet. Good luck on finding substitutes for your breakfast.

Picked up DH and the girl. Didn't make it home to the raw chicken, instead we stopped by the neighborhood diner and I opted for breakfast.

2 eggs, 2 bacon and 2 pancakes. It was just what I wanted.

Tonight the chicken? I can't say depending on DH.

Had the annual well woman check today and OMG I know that lady used the biggest speculum she could find and cranked it open as wide as it would go! and she says...you might feel a little pressure! Right your little and my little are two different things! Needless to say, not a happy camper. Rescheduled the MRI because they didn't tell me I needed blood work prior, anyway, got that blood work done today for the MRI appointment after vacay!

B: toast, DDP

L: peanut butter, freeze dried peas

S: almond sweet and salty bar


Have a great night!

my best friend loves to order breakfast at the diner as well. I hate breakfast and usually opt for a big salad, many times with grilled shrimp!

why'd she have to use the biggest one!?

innerpeace on 07/08/2016:
she said she couldn't get a good view of my cervix with the plastic disposable one, so she used a metal one that was larger.

The girl has found the art of Facebook messenger ergo she IMs me most days and evenings - cute but OMG leave me alone!

Dinner was grilled pork roast, potato salad and left over baked beans.

Last night was pretty laid back, still don't like yoga. I need to be more relaxed or something. Walked the dog, back did good. Getting the girl afterwork, no plans.

B: toast, iced vanilla latte,

S: protein sweet salty bar

L. Peanut butter sandwich, freeze dried peas

D: grilled chicken of a kind - DH will cook it up.

called and made reservations at the AF Base in Oklahoma. I'm using my retiree benefits YAY, saving about $63 for a two bedroom house with fully working/stocked kitchen and laundry facilities. Saving about $50 bucks vs. hotel room. Three weeks can't come soon enough. The RNC madness has begun and I want to get out...but ALAS I must stay until it ends.

We have another week of the girl next week...good times!

Have a great night!

I got home about 2:00 Friday and did not leave my house one time until I had to go to work this morning!

I didn't want to be around people. My mind was mush. DH doesn't push me so lots of TV was watched. Drama free holiday weekend. Jumped on the Indians band wagon only to watch them lose not once but twice. I guess I won't watch them anymore.

Sleep was meh...was up usually around 1 or 2 am and didn't go back to bed until 3 or 4 am and then back up again about 8:30.

Walked my dog a few times.

Eating was a big what not to do!

Friday night - Chinese food - DH and I split sesame chicken, peanut chicken, house fried rice. It was ok, my hands were swollen on Saturday.

Saturday - cream cheese danish, turkey burger, potato salad

Sunday - cream cheese danish, baby back ribs, potato salad (2 times) - lunch & dinner

Monday - toast, iced vanilla latte, ribs & potato salad, baked beans - needless to say I'm sick of baby back ribs (I had 4-6 ribs each time)

for a community that has banned fireworks, our neighborhood fired those off all weekend long, way into the night. They were pretty, we watched a lot from our upstairs bedroom.

Trying yoga again.

Have a great night.

Got DH and the girl, this takes over an hour, the commute is killing me!

Idle time at home was drama free, enjoyed it!

Hawaiian pizza, ate too much.

Was up with the dog about 1:30 and stayed up until 3:00 and then I go back to bed.

Was up at 5:30, got DH up who has to be at work 7:00, me anytime between 7-9, no rush! The earlier I get in the earlier I can leave! Excited about the weekend. No plans which makes it even better.

B: blueberry bagel, iced vanilla latte

S: almond sweet & salty bar

L: left over pizza, banana, fiber one key lime bar (last one of these, I do not like and it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth) - note to self

There is a pork roast thawed and ground turkey, I will decide which one to cook on the way home.

Have a great 4th of July weekend, peace to all.
