I remember my sis used to have this t-shirt that said "I can't believe I ate the whole thing", and this was when she was early 20's maybe before she had a massive breast reduction,... Well, that is what comes to mind, when I am brutally honest and admit that I ate the whole container of ice cream I bought yesterday.... all 1.5 litres of it, glad it wasn't 2 l. or worse yet a gallon, which I have done in my younger days. Anyway, dh mentioned that he had a cup of the ice cream, so that s a least a cup of it I didn't eat... I am addicted, no way around it. Wake up Lila, the underwear is getting tight, and even if it's only showed up once on the scale, if I don't take control of this NOW, I now only too well where this could all lead and I don't want to go there...
Thank you to all who commiserated with me about eating and needing carbs when the weather was bad. I wonder, how much it had to do with the weather?
We did finally get our storm after 9pm last nite. Not much snow, and no freezing rain I don't think. Today was 42F, so I went out and feeling silly and actually trying to save some work, I rolled a ball of snow, to clean the walkway, but did put it together and make a snowman..... Cute? I put bottle caps for his eyes.... I was going to take a walk down to the second hand and get a scarf and hat for him, but I spent an hour in the basement with the furnace repair guy and then had a nice hot tranquil moments bubble bath and read some more, so never got to it.
This new book is one by the great-grandmother of the lady living upstairs. it's basically a journal of her life in Newfoundland and she got married in 1938, so there's your time frame... I don't know how many were printed or anything, I should check it out more in the book or ask my neighbor. She came out and we visited while she helped me shovel out the driveway we share. I have a car, but she only walks..
Anyway, must go look for the recipe for Lentil, chickpea, sweet potato curry that I plan to make for supper.
AFter yesterday's feeding frenzy, I am being more careful how I eat today.
Brekafast, - raisin bagel with ginger jam, SF tapioca and a plum
Lunch - egg salad on pumpernickel bread, SF tapioca and a nectarine.
*(SF tapioca was supposed to be rice pudding, but I picked it up by mistake, very nice too)
Supper - Sp Lentil, chickpea, sweet potato curry over basmati rice
may be back later, gone cooking and reading, maybe even walking...
