Today is Sunday and yesterday was pay day. I want to go to the store today and buy a new swimsuit. How reasonable is that?
But here is the thing. If I don't do my laundry on Sunday then my life starts crumbling the rest of the week. More specifically, if I don't get my white shirts for deli job on the hanger with the pants that I plan to wear with the shirt and apron, well then, I'll be late for work on Friday.
Well, if I don't go out to buy a swimsuit, then I want to go to the grocery store. Hm....the only thing is, already today, I had a piece of chicken that was frozen in a baggie that I nuked, and there was an ear of corn that I also nuked. Hm......and I have tuna on the shelf and celery in the refrig, so I don't need food. Hm.....I don't want to put my laundry away. And the pool isn't open yet, my old one will do a few more times. Hm......this organizational thing is not cool sometimes. I've been thinking that the head of cabbage will keep a while longer or I can put it into a soup pot and fix it with a few of the tomatoes that I have left.
Now for the car........anthropological site on wheels. Uch......Uch.....Uch! If I get it cleaned out, I have promised myself that I'll reward myself with a cleaning car service where they wash the outside and the inside. Hm....my reward use to be a massage; hm, how things change.
frustration--I have $ to meet expenses this month and questionable about next. Delima....graduation 3 hours away this weekend for family and if/when I go, it will make next month's budget,,,,,well, it's not budgeted and I'm not strong enough to say no to myself, rather like the food and exercise that I'm also dealing with as well.....
bother.... well, sadly, I didn't attend, and realize that I disappointed a couple of people.

Can't get my blog to work....need to have someone look at my computer, oh well!
I guess I'm at stage 4 where i'm putting it all together, even though I have not lost that much...well I shouldn't say that, just hasn't been going as fast as I'd like.
I know that conserving on soap is a cool thing in this day and age of green; yet, I've learned to put an extra scoop of laundry soap into my washer, and now after a time, my clothes feel clean even at the end of the day. I'm learning how to buy at the grocery store. Only it's different than what I thought it should be. I'm buying a bag of potatoes (no offense to anyone, I was raised with potatoes and if I use them kindly and gently, they can help me reach my goal), tomatoes, grapefruit. I bought the gallon size of olives and a gallon size of pickles. I buy a loaf of bread from the thrift store, wheat, because it tastes good. Did I tell you where I keep the bread? In my car. That way, if I leave the house without breakfast, well....ta da....and at the end of the week, well, I have a little park here where I can stop by and it's ok if i give the rest of the bread to the animals--well, birds.
I'm learning to substitute a bottle of milk and a bannana when I make my stop at the deli. I've replaced that snack, the same price as a sundae. And I haven't given up the sundae's either.
Did I tell you how easy it is to pack my lunch? A tomato, a grapefruit, an apple, or whatever, into the bag and out the door. It's not a big deal if I decide to eat it at one sitting or spread it thoughout the day.......
175 is such sweet music.
Wondering when the last time that I saw that number on the scales and this week it happened again......
It happened twice and I had ignored the first time thinking that it was a fluke. And then it happened again.
I'm not even going to mention what else that I think that I should be doing, or what else is happening that makes my healty life style being goofy. I just want to say that 175 is such sweet music. I'm at 175 right now!!!!!!!

I'm fighting using the vending machine at my part time job. I keep water in the refrig there.
On spring break this week, and am setting realistic goals for self as far as the apartment, rearranging and moppingg. I've been retiring some of my clothes, that I love dearly, but atlas, the holes in them are just getting too big, and I'm getting them away from me before I wear them again.
I use to have lots of clothes, and then deccided to not buy more until I got my weight down, and that is a slow moving process for me. Anyway, I'm really down in clothing. And while I'm good at thrift clothes shopping, I might have to invest in some standard clothing....basics and then add the thrift clothes for emphasis. It's been so long of me buying some quality clothing, that I'm not eeven sur what is in style.

Cleaning and lent:
For lent, I'm washing my floors on a daily basis, and twenty minutes floor exercises.
So far, I'm doing it.
Bought only fresh fruit and veggies when I went to a new market. My aunt passed away and I saw some of my cousins.
Sad, She wasn't my favorite aunt, but she was always in the kitchen. They had been married for 60 years. My uncle was one of those devoted husbands, and was not a character the way most others were in the family. He was called the peacemaker. A great loss.
