The Tween Time

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I have a dilemma. I'm calling it the "tween" time. That's the time between me getting home from work and the time hubby rolls in and is ready to eat at night. That "tween" time is like an hour and a half. When I get home I'm hungry...ready to fix dinner and eat emoticon . But with so much time between my getting home and hubby getting home (and then he has to change his clothes and lately..he's having a mixed drink..more on that in a bit) I find that I'm looking for something to just tide me over until we can eat. I know...find something good for me you say...but the thing is...I don't stock "extra" good stuff at home. Last night I found my self having two pieces of whole wheat bread w/butter and two slices of Ultra Thin cheese (I did log it all) while I was cooking dinner. Hubby got home about 6:45 but then had to have a drink. So we ate late...like about 7:15. So my dilemma is..how do I stave off the hunger bangs before dinner? emoticon

As noted above...hubby has been have a mixed drink or two when he gets home. I guess I shouldn't mind that he does..but I do. You see he quit drinking and smoking awhile ago and I'm worried about why he's suddenly decide to start drinking again? Back when he was drinking it was beer, this is Jack Daniels with Pepsi Max. We had the same issue back when it was beer with my having to hold dinner until he was done drinking. In truth...I feel a bit resentful that he does this. Is that bed of me? I know he's working long hours right now and OT but I still hate to see him get back into this habit. emoticon He was doing well on living a healthy life style. emoticon

I heard back from my e-visit with my Dr. Basically all she said was I can ice it to reduce the bump, if it itches or hurts to get some OTC stuff to handle it. Then ended with "I don't know what you me to say". I was less then impressed. I've been mostly happy with this Dr but sometimes I get the feeling she really could care less. Anyway...I do have an appt the 18th for the boob thing. But if it gets better and goes away before then...I'm cancelling the appt. emoticon I've seen no other issues/changes with my breast, if I do I'll be on the phone with the Dr office.

Boy...have I been a little ray of sunshine or what today? emoticon

Eating last night (even with the 'snacks" was mostly within range (I was like 22 calories over the high end) and my weight was a few oz down this morning (is it sad when losing a few oz makes me happy? emoticon ). Eating at work was good..and my lunchtime workout was better. I still need to get off my butt at home though. I was doing good for about a week before the kids cam on the whole home work out thing. Now I'm back to NOT doing it. emoticon

OK...time to get end this blog and get some work done! Have a great rest of Tuesday!
