Just taking it easy today...

Saturday, July 12, 2014

I woke up this morning still feeling tired, and just generally kinda blah. And I wanted Taco Bell. Breakfast of champions, right? So that's what I had. I showed some restraint and didn't eat as much as I normally would, but it still wasn't good. Except it was good. Totally hit the spot. Last week I ignored TOM cravings but today I fed them Taco Bell.

The rest of the day has been okay though. For lunch, I made up a beans and rice dish. It was really really good. Then for dinner I had a frozen meal and a bag of rice cakes. It hasn't been a stellar day nutritionally, but I didn't have fast food twice, so I consider that a partial win. Usually starting the day off with something unhealthy is not a good sign for the rest of the day. But to be honest, I've kind of been just blah and not even really in the mood to pig out.

We went to a store having a 20% off sale and bought a few things. I got some new headphones for the gym, a new water tumbler {got a 32 oz this time}, and a bath poufy. Very exciting stuff. Dh picked up some of the ear buds he likes, and got a couple dvds or blu rays or something.

Other than that it has been a totally chill day. I've had music playing on Spotify all evening. I cleaned a little bit, we cooked, and we've just hung out here talking and doing pretty much nothing. I wasn't in the mood to do much, and dh is always happy to have a day of doing nothing, so that's what we did.

As far as I know, The Buddy and I are walking tomorrow. Gonna have to be mall walkers, though. Too darn hot for walking at the park, and it's supposed to rain/storm tomorrow. If for some reason she can't go, I'm gonna go to the community center and walk. I need to get in some movement this weekend, and I sure didn't do that today.

I'm kinda bummed cause dh has to work tonight. Usually he's off Friday nights and Saturday nights, but this week he has to work. And I'll be even more bummed tomorrow when he's having to sleep instead of waking up to entertain me. I'll just spend the time reading, though. I'm trying to stick to relaxing things since TOM is still lingering and making me feel a little insane. Things that would normally be a little stress make me totally bug out when I'm all emotional. I have to talk to my grandmother, but hopefully that will be the only stressful thing I do. And hey, maybe I'll get lucky and she won't be too difficult!

For now I'm going to relax with my book while dh naps, then spend some time with him before he has to go to work tonight. Then hopefully I will sleep. I slept through the night last night without waking up to eat, hopefully I will do the same tonight. And if not, I'm armed with my notebook to write before I put food in my mouth.

Hope everyone is having a lovely summer weekend!

    Rest and energize. That is also important on your journey. Today you can go for more.

    emoticon What emoticon are you reading? It is good that you took a day off from exercise. The body repairs itself while resting, which results in you being stronger. I love Taco Bell too. Where I live there is a Taco Bell/Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. I usually have 2 or 3 Tacos and mashed potatoes and gravy there.

    I too had a good night of emoticon and woke up energized!

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    Always nice to have a laid back day!! I wish I could have one. We are getting the house ready for hubby's upcoming hip surgery. I am still bugging him to get a new riding mower since he cuts in now with a power mower (1.5 acres) and claims that is his exercise. Then he limps for a week because his hip hurts. emoticon His old riding mower needs some motor work and a new tire and I bet if he sent it to the guy who fixes mowers it would have been fixed for a lot less than a new one would cost. My son said he will cut the grass but NOT without a riding mower. AND today when hubby went to cut the grass his power mower would not start. Do ya think someone or something is trying tell him HE NEEDS A NEW MOWER????

    It is hot here too. I hope you get to walk with your buddy!! I miss walking with my friend. We both went to the gym to talk about membership but she can't join right now. Big hospital bill from having her gallbladder out in February and she is making monthly payments so no left over money to join the gym. At least she now has health insurance. I kept telling her to sign up for ACA when it went into effect and especially since her symptoms looked like gallstones but she kept dragging her feet and then wham!! She had a really acute attack and it had to come out. She did sign up shortly after her surgery.

    I hope you enjoy your book!! I got a couple new ones at the used book store and two at Cosco but have not had time to get into them yet. I will probably be able to get to start one of them during the week I am off when hubby has his surgery. emoticon

    Have wonderful rest of the weekend!! Enjoy your mall walking tomorrow!!!

    So happy you had a good night last night. Hope tonight is just as good. The humidity here is really high so I'm not spending much time outside either. Usually first thing in the morning I sit on the deck and drink coffee. It's very peaceful. Hope you and Buddy have a great walk in the morning!
