Hello Casual Travelers! Which much horror I just realized that I never did the blog for today so the movie will just have to wait a few minutes because this is SO much more important. So, motivation is clearly not my issue. Now let's talk about what kind of help I need.
I need help with:
Learning how to live alcohol-free- we're trying to not drink at ALL but I do admit to having some alcohol with dinner out last weekend and having some champagne at the opera a few weeks ago. Which is good. What is bad is how much I miss it. I liked getting a bit numb each evening as a reward for a day well lived and as a way to relax after being super busy all day. Plus, who am I kidding, the sex was more frequent. Not better, just more frequent. Direct correlation? Me thinks so. Any advice on this I will take!
Getting better sleep- Might be related to above, wink wink. Seriously though, we bought a new bed, one of those memory foam things and it's really comfortable except when my husband's in it with me! We stupidly downsized from king to queen. Word of advice- never do that. When he's out of town I sleep through the night, no 2am pee even! When he's here, I feel squished even though he tries to make enough room (bless him). This leads to anxiety in a big way and I end up having restless legs. I get stressed and my legs won't hold still. Please advise me oh wise ones on this.
Ok, let's talk about the scale. I love it. I hate it. I love to love it, you get the picture. I like weighing myself every morning because it motivates me to stay on course. I hate to weigh myself after a night out because it's always so cruel. This is a problem area for me. You all have given me lots of good advice on this and I think I just need to remember to keep perspective and use the three day average to smooth things out.
Recipes!!! Who's got some good dinner recipes? I hate looking for new recipes. Please give me your favorite dinner recipe. It's got to be low cal and relatively low carb (so no pasta, potatoes, rice, bread please). Gosh, if I could get a few more recipes, I could eat like this forever!
I like to end my blogs with a picture and there's one here, it's just in this link. This is MY blog about my favorite recipe. It comes from Dr. Mark Hyman's UltraMetabolism Cookbook and dang, is it yummy! And easy. At least go look at the pic...
And Jeez Louise!!! Anyone else get the Meth Mouth ad? Gross! Dear Spark, stop it.
