And I'm saying this after DH took me out to dinner tonight. Hmmmm....
Every work day, I pack both my breakfast and my lunch. I generally am not hungry right when I get up, but know that breakfast is important. Therefore, I pack a breakfast to eat at my desk. Most mornings, I have some sort of leftovers. Cereal (no, not even oatmeal!) doesn't stick with me and I get hungry really fast. I really like eggs and bacon but there are two problems with that breakfast. One, not the healthiest choice. Two, no one will make it for me! That's the big issue! LOL!
Lunch is also a leftover, but a different leftover than breakfast. I've had potato soup, beef enchiladas, lasagna and spaghetti so far this week. I packed the last of the spaghetti for lunch or breakfast tomorrow. When I was trying to figure out what to have for the other meal, I started looking through the freezer for my options. Enchiladas or lasagna - been there, done that...today! Chicken and rice dish - okay, but I don't feel like it. Frozen dinner - meh!
Short story long (yes, I know, I can make things long!) (Oh my, I just realized that that could be taken really wrong! ) Anyway...I am bored with all of the food I make. At least, right NOW I'm bored with every food choice I have. Ugh! So, do you think I could stay bored long enough that I won't eat more than my ranges allow? Yeah, didn't think so.
And I bet you are all dying to know what I decided to have for the other meal, huh?
Drum roll please... (pretend those two together are a drum)
I'm going to buy my lunch! Brilliant, yes? I've even decided to get a sandwich rather than a burger. Yay me! LOL!

No, I'm not calling myself a hippo. BUT, do you remember that game? You'd slap the lever on the hippo's butt and their mouth would pop open. Then your hippo would "devour" whatever was in front of them. Even when it was just marbles! Ick!!
Well, I felt like one of those dang hippos today. Wanting to devour everything in front of me...and some things I would actually have to work for! LOL! For most of the day, I fed my inner hippo well. String cheese while getting ready for work (I told you I was hungry, hungry!). Lasagna and broccoli for breakfast. Fiber one bar for snack. Beef enchiladas, broccoli and carrots for lunch. Orange for a snack. Spaghetti (no, no broccoli) for dinner. One piece of bread with some butter and garlic salt. Then I finished off the potatoes and carrots from last night's dinner. Told myself to wait before I ate more. And I did wait.
And about an hour later, I ate 9 Lorna Doone shortbread cookies. (Yes, I counted them. And, yes, I tracked them.) Then, another hour later, I had a string cheese. Now, 45 minutes later I'm still hungry! Or am I hungry again? Either way, I don't like it! Maybe I just need to go to bed and override the hippo with the slug. At least the slug got some rest...I think.
I'm going to go to bed now (after I drink some tea) and see how tomorrow goes. Wish me luck!

during softball practice. At least, not as her coach. Cos I'm not her coach this year! LOL! And trust me, I'm okay with it! Her coach is the varsity softball coach for our local high school. He will be great for her and I am very glad that she is on his team.
I just miss getting to tell her to run faster, try harder, do more!! I still give her a little grief from the sidelines, but not as much as in the past. I don't think she misses it though. Odd, huh?
Oh! Problem solved! I'll just tell her all that stuff on the way to practice, on the way home from practice and in between all of the practices!!! Yay for me! Not so yay for her! It's gonna be a good week!

Hello all! Got up around 9:00 today. Took the kids to breakfast at a place that has an all you can eat buffet. I ordered from the menu. Yay me! Came home and started reading....sorta. Actually cuddled under my blanket and fell asleep. It was nice!
Got up, ate breakfast, gathered kids for my kids to play with, and did my workout! After my workout, DH called and said that he and his folks were ready to meet us for dinner. They were ready a full hour before they normally are. Talk about hustling!
After dinner, I got a new holder for my silverware and picked up some more doggy diapers. Fun, huh? Or not...
That's it. My whole day. Hoping for bed soon.
See y'all on the flip side!

Yesterday, in my status, I said that I was trying to decide if I should go grocery shopping in the morning or to the gym first.
Pros of grocery shopping first:
Fewer people at the store
Still time to work out later
Fewer people at the store
Cons of grocery shopping first:
Might not work out.
Pros of working out first:
Will get it done and out of the way.
More likely to eat better all day
Cons of working out first.
More people at the grocery store
Yep, that about sums it up!
Can you tell that I'm not a big fan of people? LOL! So...what did I do?
I got up at 8:00, started laundry and ate some breakfast. Did some more laundry, got dressed and Sparked some. I was trying to make myself do something...anything! Finally, at 10:00, I went upstairs and did my DVD. After that, I did some more laundry, gathered my library books and headed to the library and then the gym. And guess what? The gym was crowded!!
Okay, it wasn't so crowded that I couldn't get a machine..my favorite machine even..but there were people there! And I don't share well! At least in my head I don't. My gym! You go away! Shoo! LOL!
After the gym, came home, made potato soup and cooked broccoli, showered and gathered my grocery list and coupons. Left the house shortly after 2:30. The Gluten Free store was great! Except they didn't have one of the items I wanted. They are ordering it for me, so all's good. PLUS, I didn't have to go to Wal-Mart this week! SCORE!!
Hit Bed, Bath and Beyond for a bunco hostess gift. Also found a great scrubber that I will ban my family from using! And, got a new silverware holder that is "this much" too big for my drawer. Exchanging that tomorrow, dang it!
Then, headed to the grocery store. I swear, people are annoyin'! LOL! There were a lot of people at the store, young to old, and for the most part were polite and aware. However...you know how when you go to the grocery store, you start seeing the same people in most every aisle? Most of the time, no big deal. But there is always that one person (or that one group or couple or whatever) that just doesn't get it. They are the people who steer the cart in the middle of the aisle and then leave it there when they go to look for something on a shelf. Or park the cart to the side and then stand right next to it, blocking the aisle, while they look for something. AND, if you say excuse me, they act like you just asked if you could kiss their goat!
One particularly annoying maze today...Fairly wide aisle. Cart to the left, cart to the right. just enough room for one cart to get through between them. I'm heading south and there is a chain of folks heading north. I wait for them all to clear out. Last one stops...yes STOPS!...in between the other two carts!!! Then, backs up and heads back the other direction! Of course, it wasn't quite that quick. They had to discuss their plans first. UGH!!! See why I think people are yucky! LOL!!
Luckily, I got away from that couple and was able to finish my shopping relatively roadblock free. And I spent less money than normal. Either I was a thrifty planner/shopper or I forgot a bunch of stuff. We'll know in a few days when I start to make dinner and don't have a thing to cook! LOL!
Grocery shopping at 3:00 in the morning is sounding better all the time. Even if it does mean I have to carry all of the groceries in by myself!
