Hello friends, I hope everyone had a nice Monday. I had a strange day, I felt anxious and nervous for most of the day...because at work some of my co-workers are moving depts and I might have to work in an area I don't want to since I am low man on the totem poll. I was able to catch my boss in a good moment to tell him that I really like working where I am and would prefer to stay there if possible. I hope it all works out only time will tell...whatever happens I am very grateful to have a job. Things were getting stressful at home, I'm sure everyone can relate to money stress.
Anyway, after work I went grocery shopping I bought a lot of greens today, mustard greens, kale, chard I am planning to have a good food week. I really wanted a glass of wine tonight, but I am breaking from bad habits of drinking to deal with stress, I feel good about myself and the progress I am making. It helps that we don't have any alcohol in the house.
Yesterday after I wrote my blog hubby and I cheated and went to cold stone to use a gift certificate from Christmas, it was only the 2nd time hubby and I have gone out for ice cream together....and holy crap I just looked up the info and the small like it size I got of cake batter with oreos added in for a grand total of 42g of sugar. Just about three days sugar in a tiny bowl. CRAZY.
Well, I'm back on the wagon now and I don't feel bad about my cheat yesterday I'm just gonna do well the rest of the week. It's easy to let one cheat lead to another but I'm not gonna go down that rabbit hole again. I've been inspired by Kasey and her juicing. When we lived in CA hubby and I juiced a lot, we bought a juicer/food processor from the folks who make the bagic bullet...it worked great for a year, then died on us. Today I used an old juicer from my grandparents the miracle juicer. It's kinda a pain in the ass to clean, but I can live with that. Today I juiced some celery, Italian parsley and ginger...very yummy.
Breakfast: 1/2c oatmeal, sliced almonds, strawberry barleans
Snack: 1 smart and delicious tortilla, crustless quiche
Lunch: salad with spinach, radishes, asparagus, celery, sliced almonds, blue cheese, kalamata olives...I ate half for lunch and the rest for dinner
Dinner: rest of salad, celery, parsley and ginger juice
