I'm a gunna go broke!

Monday, May 14, 2012

So, while I have posted awesome food blogs and such, I haven't got much of a chance to blog about other things. Most of this is due to laziness.

I am down now to 224 pounds! I am very excited about this. I started thinking about things I wanted to reward myself with once I am out of the 220s... then it occurred to me, that if I keep rewarding myself with things, I am going to go broke! Seriously... but then again, it gives me an excuse to buy stuff... I am torn!!

Things have been going pretty well at the gym. Some teenage boy made a comment to me today, and I put him in his place. I guess he either wanted my mat space or medicine ball (or both) that I was using. He told his friend "I can't, that fat girl is using it" which I obviously knew he was talking about me since I was the only girl in the gym, and obviously I am fat (duh?) so, I said "Excuse me, but if you don't shut up, this fat girl is going to eat you for a snack. Now, run along home and play with your sister Justin Bieber" The kid looked like he either shat himself or wanted his mother... either way I still am chuckling about it. I know that the kid shouldn't have referred to me at the "fat girl" but it honestly didn't bother me... I guess it is just how kids today are. It is sort of like teenage boys calling each other "faggot" which REALLY bothers me by the way... but hopefully the little wretch thinks twice about calling someone fat. Then again, I guess he could have said "the fat lady" or that "old lady" so I guess "fat girl" isn't that bad in retrospect.

My boyfriend got a new job. He is still working for the same company, but he is on a new route now. He is a truck driver. He was delivering to Appleton, WI every 2 days out of Pennsylvania, but he is now delivering to Camp Hill, PA out of Roaring Spring, PA. It is really great. It means he is home every night now. It makes me happy. I like having him here, and hopefully I will be able to make him healthy lunches to take with him to work. I am just glad he is going to be home more. It was a small pay cut, but nothing that we can't deal with.

In other news, the guy next door passed away. He was only 50 years old. A very nice guy, we always got along well with him. I feel so bad for his wife. There is no viewing, but there will be a service on Thursday which we will be going to. I am a little nervous about going to a church, but I will do it out of respect for them.

Mother's Day was great. My mother really liked her gift.

Other than that, nothing new.

That is all for now

    People are often shocked when the "fat girl" speaks up for herself!

Dinner Tonight (photos)

Monday, May 14, 2012

this is the sauce I let simmer all day. Lean ground turkey and low sugar Ragu... for the future, I am going to use ground beef. While the sauce isn't horrible, the turkey is dry and really lacks the flavor of beef. I will eat it..

This is obviously eggplant. I boiled it a little bit in the skillet in order to try to bring out some of the water before I broiled it.

This is the finished product.

My little pouch was pleased with the results. So was my mouth.

    Not an eggplant fan, but would try it with squash. Glad it did you and your pouch good.

    It looks good. I'd still be hungry though. I have to eat a lot of veggies so I'm not so hungry.

Today didn't start out so well. First, I woke up late. I realize that I don't get home until almost 6am, but I didn't want to sleep as late as I did. I didn't get up until 1.

That put me behind. I forgot I had to make a few things to bring with me for lunch (which was dumb, because I ended up throwing most of it out)

I didn't feel like eating breakfast, but forced myself to eat tomato soup, which I ate too fast or something because it made me about half sick. I couldn't stomach the thought of eating another egg. I really need to find something good to have for breakfast... maybe I will start having cottage cheese and fruit for breakfast and have green yogurt and fruit for snacks? I have no idea. I am so sick of eggs. Maybe I will make a ham and cheese melt tomorrow? I have no idea...

Then I made fish again for dinner tonight. I am getting really sick of it too. I am going to have to switch to another meat for a while. I think I might make some baked ricotta, and freeze it in small portions? Or maybe add some eggplant with it?

Eating has become a chore... like honestly, I don't really want to eat. I like the cooking part, I just don't like the eating part so much. I am sure that will change in time.

I didn't feel so hot today to begin with, then everything I had to do before work, I didn't make it to the gym. That is ok, I will go tomorrow, and I don't care if I have to go to work after all sweaty, I am going to do it. Like I said, I just literally ran out of time. I didn't even use conditioner today because I didn't have the extra time to rinse it out in the shower.

I think that is all for now
