Day 3 of the Spring Challenge

Monday, May 13, 2013

I don't usually suffer from Spring Allergies...
but my eyes are killing me this year and my maroon car is green.
I got rid of my living room area rug and the whole room feels airy...

I'm still trying to add turmeric to almost everything and I like it,
especially in scrambled eggs and chicken dishes.
I'm sure it will be great with my bean stews/soups.

Now I'm trying to get in at least 2 cups of veggies for lunch and dinner,
and at least 2 servings of dark green leafy veggies a day.
My favorite has become chopped collard greens.
Apparently they are high on the nutrition density list so I am doing okay.
I am also trying to vary the colors and the types of veggies I eat in a day.
I'm staying away from all potatoes, brown rice, and pasta right now
and I've temporarily given up beans.
The only starch I've been having is hot air popcorn with nothing on it.
I like me that guilt free crunch.

This weekend I was watching highlights of the Jodi Arias police interrogation,
the 48 Hours Interview and trial on YouTube.
Scary felt like I was watching the movies
FATAL ATTRACTION and TO DIE FOR both rolled into one.
beauty is only skin deep, ugly arrogance goes all the way..

    Are you sure that's not turmeric on your car? LOL.

Jodi Areas is scary. I'm sure that there is some kind of medical condition that applies to her but the psychologists didn't seem to get it right. She seems to have it all. She's neurotic, psychotic, a sociopath, a psychopath, bi-polar, schizophrenic, delusional, etc., etc. etc. She is able to just "lie on the fly" like it's nothing. Oh, you don't like that story? Here's another lame one. I certainly would not want to be her cell mate. emoticon

    You're doing very well with the food. It's good to figur out what works (or not) for you. It's a process for sure. I love tumeric as well!

Jodi Arias . . . yup . . . she's one for the books for sure.

HUGS and hp it's a good Monday for you.

    Sounds like you're doing great with the food choices. Starches, carbs, sugar are definitely weekness for me.

And I agree, they're are some pretty scary people in the world.

Have a great day!

    I watched 4 months of the trail. 18 days of the lying witch on the witness stand. I think she should get life in prison and photos of Travis's autopsy should be put on the ceiling so she has to look at them every single night. I was so happy with the verdict. Then she does an interview and says basically Give me death. Be careful of what you wish for Jodi.
