Sick of food...

Sunday, July 24, 2011

uggggg -- I am so tired of eating food. No matter what I eat, it all tastes the same to me.

I am so sick of chicken, fish, beef, pork - no matter how I prepare it, no matter what spices I use, it all tastes like nothing to me.

I know that food is supposed to be fuel for my body, and I should look at it that way and not as something to enjoy, however, I don't now, nor will I ever view food that way. If I don't like what I am eating, that just leads to binges, which leads to purges, which leads to me feeling crappy. Right now, however, it doesn't matter what it is, everything tastes like sand.

I made a new spark recipe last night for my lunch for the next few days. It tastes pretty good when I sampled it last night, but now, it just doesn't seem appealing to me.

I made pasta last night for dinner, and the first bite or two was really good, then it just reminded me of rubber.

I did have a Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat, and it was excellent. Maybe I should just drink beer?

  I disagree that you should not look at food as something to enjoy. What do you enjoy eating? I don't necessarily care too much for meat, either. When I realized that, I cut it mostly out of my diet. Then, I found myself craving it, so I'd have small amounts of it - when that happened. Then I'd go back to eating primarily veggies, fruits, nuts, etc. That got me out of my food-funk.

The Great Toilet Paper Debate....

Monday, July 18, 2011

My boyfriend and I can not agree on a kind of toilet paper. Personally, I prefer good old fashioned Scott tissue. It is easy on the septic system, it is a good price, large rolls last a long time, it has no lint and did I mention that it is lint free?

He on the other hand, likes charmin or something similar. I am not down with that. It is too linty in my opinion and I am just not cool with it.

I thought I would compromise and I bought this Scott soft kind... big mistake. It is linty. I can't win!

I got on the scales this morning, and they read 229.8! Whoo Hoo! Well, actually it read 233.2, then I stepped off and it gave me --C-- then I stepped back on and it read out 229.8. I don't know what that means or why it does that. I then weighed myself three more times, and it came back with 229.8 so I am going to stick with that. I will double check it tomorrow, but I am pretty excited that I am FINALLY out of the 230's! Maybe this means I might be able to start losing weight like a regular person. I am really hoping for that.

Since I lost some weight, i treated myself to a nice relaxing day in the pool. I spent all afternoon relaxing on a raft and enjoying the nice weather. Tomorrow is my last day of vacation, so I am not sure how I am going to spend that. I know that I am going to prepare my work lunches for the next few days, I am just not sure what i am going to make.

I had to put the top back on my Jeep :(

I think that is all for now

    Perhaps just buy both toilet papers? Lint butt, sore butt from to much roughness... either way, someone ends up feeling uncomfortable at home. Which is stranger-- a couple with 2 rolls of paper beside the toilet, or a happy couple that broke up because of some paper that gets flushed out with crap.
Of course, there's always the addition of those fresh wipes things. Or a bidet.

    Congrats on the weight loss!

p.s. try Angel Soft if it is available in your area. It is septic safe and might be a good compromise. I love it, if one can "love" toilet paper.

My body did NOT like that

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Yesterday my boyfriend and I took the scooter out for a ride. We went to Shanksville, PA to the Flight 93 Memorial. It is pretty close to where we live (maybe an hour away?) and I had never been there so we decided to go check it out. It was... well... a field. Nothing really exciting actually. They are working on an actual memorial, and while I think that is great, I think the 100's of millions (yes, that is correct 100's of millions) they are dumping into it could be better spent.

We stopped on the way home at a hole in the wall bar for dinner. The menu was HUGE and I do not lie when I say they had over 500 flavors of chicken wings, 150 type of hot dogs, and just about any other fried food you can imagine. They also had a bunch of different types of salads and sandwiches.

It took me forever to decide, but I settled on 10 mild wings and a small order of spicy cheese balls. My boyfriend got a 12 inch deep fried, bacon wrapped hot dog with nacho cheese and chili and an order of fries. The food was wonderful. The wings were out of this world. They were HUGE and the sauce, while mild, made my lips burn. They were awesome! I didn't eat all of them though, my boyfriend ate a few as well since I also had some cheese balls and some fries. On the desert menu they had deep fried oreos, snickers, twix, nutter butter, and almond joy bars. We decided on an order of the snickers bars. When they came out they were these little balls covered with powdered sugar. There were 5 per order, and even though they were like heaven I only ate 2.

*side note - normally in this situation I would have been throwing back a few beers, and not light ones either, but full flavored Sam Adams or Blue Moon, I opted for a diet pepsi, so that has to count for something... right?*

After we got home, we got ready to go to the carnival in Martinsburg, PA for the final night. They were going to have fireworks. We went to the carnival, and decided to get a funnel cake and share it. We didn't eat all of it, and threw out a little under half of it. As we were sitting on the bench waiting for the fireworks to start, I didn't feel very good, but I didn't think much of it.

The fireworks were really nice. They were even better than July 4th's celebration. I really enjoyed them, and it was so awesome to sit there with my boyfriend and just watch things exploding in the sky into a million different colors.

I woke up around 4:30 in the morning, and I didn't feel good. I didn't feel good at all. I got very sick. Apparently, my body doesn't like all of that fried food. I used to be able to eat that and not get sick, but I don't know what happened. I don't feel guilty for eating that stuff because one day of eating the most horrible food in the world isn't going to kill me. It isn't going to flush all of my hard work. I am human, and that is about it. I know next time we go to RD's to go with the grilled chicken salad and not the wings. Maybe I will get it buffalo style since the sauce was out of this world awesome? I know that maybe if I want a fried snickers bar, I shouldn't eat fries or fried cheese? I do plan on going to the restaurant again, but I don't think I will be making the same choices.

I think that is all for now
