Some Random Funny Thoughts

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I've been laughing to myself about this stuff for days and thought I'd share:

...I work at home, mostly using my kitchen table as a desk. This past week, I've been unusually 'squirmy' in my chair. I have to get up alot and move around more. Why??? I wondered.... Then it came to me: my kitchen chairs are wood and my 'butt bones' are pressing on the wood and getting uncomfortable. MY BUTT BONES???? emoticon I've always had more than enough padding in that area and didn't even KNOW I HAD butt bones! So I'm thinking about getting some chair cushions...HA!

...I went to Walmart the other day with dd's and for kicks looked for some smaller size jeans just to try on and see where I am. My 14W's are getting baggy on my butt, so I looked for 12W. I guess they don't make them. So I tried on a misses size 18 and THEY FIT COMFORTABLY!!! Yikes!! It's been 20 years since I could fit in this size! emoticon I was soooo excited that I paraded around the dressing area showing my dd's and the other ladies my waist and booty. Asking if they REALLY fit ok. YES They DID!!! I'm not buying new pants until the 14Ws are way baggy and I can get into a size 16. EXERCISE MOTIVATION!! emoticon emoticon

...Saw a movie at the theater the other day and sat in the seat with both arms down. I could even cross my legs comfortably! emoticon In the past, I always sat with extra seats around me so I could put up the arms and take up 1 1/2 seats. I could never cross my legs ANYWHERE, let alone in the theater!

...Today was a frosty morning, so I grabbed my dh's 4x black Carhart jacket to put on and get the newspaper. It wasn't his--- it was dd's XL. The shoulders and arms fit nicely and there was only about a 2 inch gap to close the front and zip. emoticon Of course I had to parade in front of my dh and show off that I can almost wear clothes my college athlete, 20-something dd wears!!! emoticon

...In the not so distant past, when I looked at calorie counts and saw a difference between food choices of say, 20, 50 or even 100 calories, I'd never hesitate to have the higher calorie food thinking the difference really didn't matter. Now it seems I stand in front of the cheese stick section at the grocery store looking at EVERY package offered and ponder the benefits of 'lite' name brand mozzarella cheese (50 cal, 7 gms protein) vs. store brand (60 cal, 6 gms protein, but significantly cheaper) vs. new flavor provalone (100 cal, 7 gms protein but on sale). .. Blah Blah Blah, you get the drift. I've become somewhat of a subject matter expert in cheese calories, protein and $ value emoticon

    Generally since my RNY 10/8/12, I've decided that since I eat so little now and spend a small fraction of what I used to on food, that I can afford and deserve to give taste, nutrition and my enjoyment a bigger share of consideration in purchases.

I've always been a frugal shopper and coupon clipper, so this is new thinking and behavior for me emoticon

I bought the store brand mozzarella cheese sticks even tho they were a little higher in cal and little lower in protein. I like how they taste just as much as the expensive brand.

I also bought the provolone sticks- only because they were on sale (less than the mozzarella sticks) and it's a new flavor. They are just ok. I probably won't buy them again.

I also like and buy a lot of the store brand pepper jack cheese sticks. Cheddar sticks and colby mix sticks are ok, but not worth the added expense on a regular basis. Same with the Baby Bel cheeses~~~

I do like Laughing Cow lite cheeses and buy them at Costco and/or discount grocery stores as they are 1/2 the price of the regular or gourmet grocery stores.

Can you tell the question got me going about my passion for cheese!!??? emoticon
