THINKING THURSDAY !!! Lotsa fresh air and thinking yesterday ..thats what happens when I'm alone!

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks..


Day 2 of my 'speriment SUCCESS !!!! I did a lot of thinking yesterday .. and well ... came to the conclusion .. I have the hootspa to set up "weekends only" for ice cream ... Why can't I PLAN my sweets for 1 serving during the day .. MAX....and that serving is NOT for breakfast .. lol lol

I started my day out going to get my nails done .. I went with "Vegas Volt" as the color .. :) Its got BLING !!!!

I was afraid because my hair was still damp, and I thought .. I CANT get myself a cold now .. but went out ... I was jumping into Beauty, and she was in the garage ... so I thought I was safe ..

From there, I ran to my cellular store; and took a minute to find out my information there ... lol lol .. and I was on my way .. On my way to Lannon Quarrey .. This was a park that I had pretty much grew up in .. and I've been itching to go .. It cost $5. to go in, and I parked by the beach .. I walked all the way around the quarrey .. While it's changed, I could still picture our "spot" next to the boat launch when mom used to take me and a few friends with one or 2 of her friends and spend the day .. It was funny, but you know how they do in TV .. the flashbacks .. I saw the whole thing and it made me feel all warm inside (either that or it was a hotflash .. lol)

There was a path off the beaten path around the quarrey, that went into the woods and I decided to go into there .. I ended up chasing chippers, and a woodpecker .. the woodpecker was way too quick .. and I was giggling because there were tons of chippers, and they were sooo animated .. I didn't know that they literally climbed trees .. there were alot of them and I know they were just chasing around because "I" was there, but it was sooo comical, and fun to watch .. lol ..

I made it around the quarrey, and took a drive around the rest of the park .. I saw alot more paths that I can venture around .. The park is quiet enough that I can get my alone time, but populated enough that it's not a dumb move to walk the paths alone .. :) so if there's decent weather, and I have the time, I can foresee myself going there again to 'spore the other pathways .. :)

After spending about 2 hours there, I headed for home ..

I was proud of myself ..even though my thoughts were focused on FOOD .. and I did have to argue with myself for breakfast ..Hubby is helping .. We had Eggo waffles, and normally I have mine with butter and grape jelly .. Jelly .. Jelly = processed sugar .. I told hubby that I had to eliminate the jelly .. Processed sugar is NOT for meals, but for desserts .. so I had my waffles with just butter, and you know what .. ??? They were tastey !!!! :) I never got the shakes ... :) day 2 of success !!!!

I was thinking of things I could have for lunch .. We are getting alittle thin here, trying to clean up everything from the fridge before vacation and well .. Mother Hubbard's cupboard is getting a little thin .. so I made myself some Minute brown rice and quinoa; and scrambled eggs .. and well .. THAT is not going to happen again .. lol lol .. so I had a greek yogurt, to wash the taste out of my mouth .. lol .. and then I had my 1 donut .. not 2 not 3 .. but ONE !!!

Yes .. I confess . ... it wasn't just 1 pack of Poptarts I was having for breakfasts ... but 2 and 3 and sometimes even a whole box in one sitting (4 packs) ... Or I wasn't just having 1 donut .. but 2 and sometimes 3 .. (depended on hubby .. if he had 3 .. I thought I could allow myself 3 .. ) ... There .. I said it .. I WAS ... er .... AM ADDICTED and that doesn't even count all the candy in between .. I supplimented with protien and sandwiches in between the sugar, because that's what I am supposed to do lol

See .. this is what happens when I have some fresh air and sunshine and just some Sally time !!! I come to alot of simple adjustments (even though my body is not thinking this is simple .. as it fights with me about sugar for the last 2 days .. )

Breakfasts will be substantial without processed sugar ... (donuts no .. poptarts no .. jelly no .. )

In between will be fruit or veggie based, or yogurts .. WITH the exception of 1 x a day .. (hey .. if I can move ice cream .. the one thing that I could eat 24/7 ..... except for weekends .. I can give myself 1 processed sugar a day)

Lunch and dinner ... REAL food ..


Well -- for dessert yesterday after that putrid lunch .. I had one of my donuts .. and savored it .. this is when I thought of my max 1 x a day processed sugar .. :)

See what happens when I have time to think ... lol lol ..

So --- I sat and vegged watching my game shows I enjoy .. :) and just felt good .. I opened up the house, and had fresh air coming in until it started getting chilly ...

and I sneezed .. oooooohhhhhhh noooooooooooooo

and I sneezed ... ooooooohhhhhh noooooooooooooo

and I sneezed ... ooooooohhhhhh noooooooooooooo

and I sneezed ... ooooooohhhhhh noooooooooooooo

and I sneezed some more ..

Well -- as of this morning .. I'm stuffed !!! DANG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hubby is off on his trek to the Dells this morning, and I decided to stay home .. I told him that I was going to have 4 days of just playing .. I didn't want to get burned out ... so was passing .. besides, since there was no coupons available for up there .. it would just be driving up playing free stuff, and then back .. so I told him I would pass today .. :)

I told him I was going to start packing .. so we can be totally ready by Monday morning ...

OoooOoooOoo I got my shipment of pants from Woman Within that I bought .. and the jeans fit like a glove .. even with my belly .. lol .. I now have more than enough clothes .. (well .. I had more than enough clothes, but sometimes, you just need to shop other than your closets .. lol so if a few pair of pants cover this need .. so be it ... :) )

So -- today is going to consist of running to Meijer (after I finish here) and picking up a few things, and then coming home and packing .. It's good .. because it's a cloudy day today .. and the rain and cold is supposed to come in later today .. so perfect to pack for "someplace warm" .. lol lol ..

Okay -- my thinking out loud and my babbling is done for now .. I wish everyone a WONDERFUL DAY !!!! I'm going to ... :)

    The photos of the park are stunning. I wonder if you are having an allergy attack. There is so much junk in the air this time of year. Probably some leaf mold around the water. emoticon

    I hope your sneezy, stuffiness is gone by Monday. Nothing is worse than feeling under the weather on a vacation.
