My lunch was so gross today. It was this keto Kung Pau cauliflower. The smell haunts me

But yeah I finished it. It was 200 calories for a big plate and I was hungry

But

Can still taste it

Blechhhhhhh 🤢

Such a crap day. We're watching our friend's dog, and he attacked my dog this afternoon and our dog got two big cuts on his flank, and had to get stitched up at the vet. I was super upset by it, and I drank my husband's full fat latte instead of my skinny one, because I was calling the vet trying to get an ASAP appointment, and being distracted and stupid. I should have caught the signs that things were escalating between the dogs, and prevented the attack. I know what to watch for and I know better. I was planning to fast tomorrow, but now I'm in this bad headspace where I'm angry at myself, and angry fasting never ends well for me. Fantastic start to the weekend!

It must be hormonal because (TMI and not sorry) the girls are at attention right now and sore.  Like I could cut glass with them.  Fun.

Welp not much new here.  Sat on the couch most of the day online shopping and being anxious.  (bought a dinosaur sweater, and spent my free Kohl's $5 on some skull earrings) Finally around 430 I got up and mulched the leaves (which you can't even TELL today lol mother nature is ornery) and vacuumed the house.  Realized I had fueled my entire day on a single piece of toast.  Powered by Toast. LOL why isn't that my username....

 

I did eat dinner then.  Actually I think sometimes low blood sugar makes me anxious too....so odd.  Bodies be weird

...breakfast? A pint of Ben & Jerry's? Impressive. I leave my room every day in the morning, and my younger sibling is always munching on pancakes COATED in syrup. No judgement to them, but I could never do that!

I’m fat again. Why isn’t the weight coming off...?

I’m on vacation the end of this week. Hoping I can relax and enjoy it.

Thin, it’s not fat it’s hormones? And by that I mean the usual water weight/ bloating and lately ankle swelling ??? Which I’ve not had since being pregnant 30 years ago!? I’m so over menopause!

Have fun being on vacation.

I just returned from a hiking trip where I allowed myself to feast on anything and everything. I had fried foods that I haven’t touched in years....loads of chocolate, and even a hot fudge sundae! Omg it was lovely. 4 days of food bliss....now I’m back to 600 max calories a day. Ugh. Will weigh myself Saturday and behold the damage.

I guess that’s the good thing about not weighing. I can pretend vacation food is magical and that I won’t gain. Lol

Indeed! ;)

I’ve had a horrible sinus headache all day and took some sinus meds that make me ravenous soooo I ate a slice of cold pizza and that was definitely not in my calorie budget for the day. I suck.

So since I’m not weighing myself I have no idea what damage my vacation did. It feels like about 5 lbs so let’s go with that. Which will take me a month to lose

Back to daily exercise and <1200...for infinity I guess.

How is everyone

Work’s slow this week so I started an organizing project lol. I’m getting way too used to working from home...my house has never been cleaner or more organized!!

I'm turning 40 in a couple of weeks so thought I would pop in and say hi. It is nice to have peers on here. Helps me to feel like less of a weird old lady creeping on a teen forum.

Snowing here for the last few days here as well. I'm never quite ready for winter...
