Oatmeal and Costco brand egg beaters,

Work food

And a popcorn for diner
i have been in a funk these last few days, stressed over life's happenings. Stuff just gets to ya sometimes, ya know?!

Tomorrow is a new day ... And lets make it a good one... NOPE! i am not waiting! I will have a nice evening :)

Hope you do as well :)
See ya tomorrow

Good Morning blog world

Yesterday was all about the weekly food prep

I find that twice a month it takes me a day to clean, rearrange and shop for supplies (kind of like preparing for war!!! LOL) and a day to prepare for the week

I watched Food Inc. and Super Size me yesterday I am going to go see Forks Over Knives this week with my DD

I think I will TRY to re-read Skinny Bitch The book is kind of brutal and a bit of a hard read, but I know it is worth it! I am almost done with the book I am reading

I got on the scale this morning and I was up a little, I know it is from eating at 5pm and going to bed at 7pm!!! I can't eat a huge salad and go directly to bed!! I know better... sheesh! and here I am up at 3 AM (I have been up for an hour!)

I have been playing with the same 5 pounds since January, maintenance is kind of a weird place to be.. I am having doubt about my commitment to healthy eating, ONLY because of the 5 pound swing, but having a 5 pound swing is kind of normal for maintenance.

I am rambling about basically nothing so I am going to go get on the treadmill and start my day...

see ya tonight

Breakfast was egg whites, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and soy chorizo and oatmeal

Greek yogurt and berries. I prepared food today a giant bowl of berries

I had a muffin while chopping vegetables, I made an egg white fritatta, it made 4 meals at 4 points each. the oven vegetables looked too good to pass on!

I cut up a watermelon, I had to have a sample bowl

salad for dinner, I made a bowl of the salad toppings; cleaned all the lettuce
Baked a total of 3 pans of oven vegetables, i used one pan for the frittata, and the others will be for lunches
i also chopped up all the chop suey vegetables ready for lunches, I will not be buying salad mixtures after last weeks bug issue!!

Stupid beans!!! So good though. Only about half a cup
Big stick for the days sweet treat. Only 70 calories!!!

See ya tomorrow. I hope you had a nice holiday

Memorial Day morning muses

So its the holiday and here I sit this morning thinking:

Am I the only one that thinks I don't do enough for the holidays? Is just a bbq with the family enough? Or should I be doing this amazing event planning? Picnic? Hike? Should we be going to a parade? Am I somehow missing out on holiday events?

When I began dieting, I ate a lot of packaged foods ... Frozen, WWer brand things. I have been noticing as folks stick to their plans and get healthier by whichever way they chose, they become pickier in their choices: eliminating this or that. They go vegan, give up soda, give up artificial sweeteners, give up the white carbs.... You get my drift.... My muses for the morning...... Am I doing enough? Should I give up something? But when I cut out this or that I set myself up to fail by being to hard on myself... I will say I looked at the ingredient list for FF store brand cool whip topping that I bought yesterday. (see picture below) it has modified potato starch.....WTH?

I read the book Skinny Bitch (kind of) it was too much for me ..... Too much information and brutal!!!! I watched Food Inc. A while back (a fellow blogger just referenced it which made me remember ..... HI CHUBS!!!!!) maybe this is part of the reason I barely eat meat... I want to watch it again but I am kind of scared to

Stupid TV!!! I have Netflix but my son needs to help me, I forgot how to operate the danged remote control

Am I so forgetful because of all the artificial sweeteners in my diet? Am I getting old? (51 is NOT old!!) do I just have a super busy life and it is just plain hard to keep it all together and has NOTHING to do with artificial sweeteners. I started taking Ginko Biloba to see if it helps

I flat out don't want to give up artificial sweeteners

Do beginning dieters often fail because they only see extreme examples of reformed dieters? 100% natural, 5k or 10k running, gym going, never eat a bite of anything bad people? I know those folks intimidated me... That's why the extreme bloggers who throw mud at struggling bloggers just make me shake my head and think ...weren't you there in their place at one point in your life?

BUT other whiner bloggers make me just plain ole sad.... Struggling struggling struggling and they have a substantial amount to lose and they think the "quick fix" diet will work for them ..... Nope..... Makes me wonder why we aren't more educated about health and fitness

Maybe we aren't as educated because we live in a society that is driven by individuals just wanting to cash in

Gees pees what has gotten into me this morning!!!

Going to go make breakfast, see ya tonight :)

Have a wonderful day
