Should've known better

Monday, February 13, 2012

I always plan ahead...I always eat healthy...I make healthy choices because it's natural now..not forced! I tried doing the 100 days of Weight loss and got bored because I don't do or have those problems anymore. I am so proud of where I have come, what I have learned, how I have changed, and how much I will move forward once I am off this stupid medication and can move my foot and actually move my body the way I like to....But tonight...I felt hungry for a little Indian...and I didn't get a whole meal, but I got an appetizer and after I ate it...I just thought...I should have known better...I have learned that I am ALWAYS disappointed with restaurant food now...except Subway and maybe Japanese (i have it rarely)...thank god Mexican food here stinks! :) But I just think...I allow myself the treat and think it's gonna be SOOOO yummy...and NOPE...wasn't worth it. And this is the best Indian food around. I am just turned on by food anymore. I should have had my brown rice and chicken and veggies like I planned....I would have enjoyed it! I hate the clean up...but it would have been yummy! I felt like...I should have a can of pringles...that's my kryptonite for those of you who don't know me...LOL I am never disappointed by the light salty goodness of those! The bloat the next day..but I plan for it when I treat myself to my one true love :) Anyway...the boy is not a pre-planner and I am working until 7 PM so we'll see what Valentine's day brings..it's also my man's Birthday so I just sort of go with the flow. :)
Off to bed early. Oh I did get in 15 minutes of Just Dance2 tonight before my ankle yelled at me to stop it! :)
Good night!

    I HATE when I have a bad curry!!! I get angry too. I've found a brand of jar sauce at my co op that's pretty tasty I treat myself too now and then.

Ever have one of those days that just dragged on and on and you think it's later but then look at the time and it's 2 hours earlier....UGH...painful! That was my day! LOL Nothing too exciting to report. Sinuses and allergies are kicking my butt and I am sleepy! So I am heading to bed...with my laptop to respond to some SP love I received.

Have a great night!
sleep tight :)

    Yes, I've experienced that feeling for almost 3 weeks now. :) My hubby has been out of town on business and it has been ridiculously long.

Have a terrific day!

Laughed my booty off

Monday, January 30, 2012

So attended my SP LIVE meeting today and I honestly have to say I think I laughed more than I actually learned at this one! LOL BIG class too!!! 19 people! We covered Cold Weather Exercise tips but most people hated outdoor exercise...me included and I'm in summer...however I LOVE winter and I actually am more active outside in winter. But the tips were funny...they used the wors " "if weather becomes too treacherous" LOL Like we're gonna climb Everest or something....maybe one day...but not today! LOL

Started wearing my body bugg again because I want to see how many calories I am burning being slightly handicapped!! So, we'll see tomorrow.

Got my hair cut and coloured and had my ear clipped a bit and we couldn't get it to clot...I jinxed her...I said..Don't cut me, I'm on blood thinners and BOOM...so after it didn't stop but my hair looked hot, I drove myself to the hospital and they popped a bandage on it and watched me for a little bit. Seriously! Like I don't look dorky enough with my handicapped parking, Pink Crocs (the only shoes that fit with sweilling), and swollen foot with mismatched socks...yup..I think a bandaged ear will improve my street cred even more...I just keep wearing my Derby shirt so it's self explanatory...LOL It started with a broken ankle....LOL

Now I am sleepy and need to go to bed. Lost 3 lbs this week and I'm just ticking along.
Had lots of peeps contact me in some way after the meeting today...I promise I'll get back to you tomorrow night :) Thank you for friending me here and liking my FB page as well. :)
Good night!

    I'm sure you could pull off the bandaid as a new accessory :) they already think you're a crazy American, they would probably think you're starting a new trend. Hehe

    You did a great job on your first VLOG. I've been considering joining the LIVE meetings but like you, I'm not a group person. Thanks for the feedback on the meetings, I may now try it.

Good luck on your Journey!

BTW - I love your hair!

Thursday and Can't wait for Friday at 5 PM!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

This won't be a big exciting blog...I was actually going to do my "Assigned" Vlog for the SParkpeople LIVE meeting homework, but my hair looks weird and I have had a long day...LOTS O' Pain! So I just wanted to check in with SP and earn my points and say hi.

Last night I used the Sparkpeople Cookbook and made the Maple glazed Salmon. YUMMY!! And tonight I made the Slow cooker Salsa Chicken. Everyone enjoyed it even though that texture isn't a favourite of my man. Kiwis tend to eat a bit differently and he thinks my food combinations are strange....usually they are southwestern and Mexican and healthy...if I like it, anything goes. But since his heart scare, he's more open-minded. he could eat the same thing everyday...I personally would love to try 3 new recipes every single day :) So I spring 1-2 new ones on him a week. Both were good and super duper easy to make. I've said it before...EVERYONE should have this book! :)

Now with that said...after I had Physio yesterday my ankle is VERY sore today and my back and neck did something strange as well...not a good day in the pain department. So now that I went to work, made dinner, cleaned up and am sparking, I just need to take my face off, heat up my gel pad (which will suck since it's warm outside and it'll make me warmer!) and just relax. The 5 days seem to do me in a little, but Weekends I relax. :) So happy I don't have children during times like this! LOL actually always glad....he he he

Hope everyone has had - is having - a great week.
Good night from Middle Earth!

    I hope that you are feeling better and at least some of the pain has gone away.

Good for you for trying new recipes! I'm glad "your man" is open to trying new things too.

Wishing you all the best! emoticon

    Uh, that Maple Salmon sound yummy!

I made the salsa chicken before, but used my oven rather than the slow cooker. I really enjoyed it!

    I'm curious about the food combos that your man prefers. What is typical?
