This was a normalish day with one or two exceptions. Exception #1 : I had to explain scripture to someone before I had my coffee. Kind of a big exception. I haven't done that in a while. All I can say is gay men and tequila make me mouthy. One in a good way, the other not so much. Church was kind of awesome, I think because of the way my day started. I was friendly and helpful and outgoing. Which, if you don't know, totally isn't like me if I'm having a bad day.
Exception # 2 I was craving exercise. I totally fell off the wagon for two months. This is kind of weird. I went out to the backyard this afternoon, in thirty degree weather, and cleaned up about two grocery sacks worth of dog poop. I'm an irresponsible pet owner, I know, there shouldn't be that much. I don't have time before I leave for work though, not used to having anything much bigger than a cat in the way of dogs, and it's dark when I come home. Lousy excuses. I know. I'm hoping to reshape my behavior this spring. Funny, this didn't cure the need for activity. Using trolling around the backyard for thirty minutes in delightful slightly below freezing sunshine will do it for me. Not today.
I spent thirty minutes doing what in my fat girl mind is circuit training. Five minutes elliptical, five bike, on off, stopping to walk around for my angry ankle to get some circulation in it, drank half a pitcher of iced tea. I'm hoping I still feel like a ball of awesome in the morning. We shall see.
I'm trying to wean myself off soda. Mostly because it wreaks havoc on my foot budget. Partially because I'm told carbonation does creepy things to your bones. I don't know if it's bullshit, but it's added motivation. I do know that diet coke is bad for my teeth. For now, this is a want to not a half too because God knows, I'm making enough changes right now. I've taken on selling Avon, I'm about to look into taking Zeal For Life Wellness and possibly selling that too, exercising more and trying to get healthy. I think if I throw in giving up my aspartame addiction I might just go nuts and attack a cheese cake. Which I may do anyway. I love cheesecake.
I'm also trying like hell to stay on top of my paperwork at the office, which, if I'm feeling better and healthier should not be a problem. It should also ease my stress.
If you're wondering what the heck I ate today to end up with such a low net calorie count, here's my food diary. See! Normal food. No wheat grass or protein shakes or voodoo bars or air sandwiches. Not even anything branded....except the fruit loops. Which tasted good. Yes, they did.
BTW: If you're wondering what's in sausage stew, it's eckrich beef skinless sausage, squash, onions, bell peppers, tony's cajun seasoning, and rice. Again. Real food.
