Farmer's Market

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I am so happy it is summer. That means our local farmer's market is in full swing on Saturday mornings. I've been picking up gallon size bags of fresh lettuce for $2.00 a bag. I rinse the lettuce in my salad spinner and we've been having fantastic fresh salads for lunch and dinner.

As an added bonus I've been buying plenty of plants and flowers to go in my garden. We bought an 8 year old house last summer without much landscaping. The bonus is I am getting exercise points for spending time in my garden. Yay.

Off the (food) wagon

Friday, June 21, 2013

I blew it yesterday. My husband had an appointment with the oral surgeon for some surgery yesterday. I was nervous because I knew they were going to put him to sleep for the procedure. Having worked in the dental field most of my career I knew there are always risks involved in putting a patient to sleep.

My first mistake was not eating lunch at home before we left for the dentist office. Since my husband couldn't eat before his procedure we decided I would drive through McDonald's for a salad and eat it in the car before I went into the office to wait for him. Big mistake, there was a tour bus in the McDonald's parking lot and people everywhere so we had to drive through Taco Bell (our only other choice). Yuck. Here is where my stress and nervousness played out - I ordered my "old" usual favorite, Nachoes Bell Grande. Yep. Bad choice. On a positive note I only ate half of the order.

Later, for dinner, I ended up driving through a fast food restaurant for take out. Hubby was home and in pain so he needed something to eat fast so he could take a pain pill when I got home. Of course, I had to order something for myself too. I was tired and didn't feel like cooking the meal I had planned.

I ended up not even tracking my food for lunch and dinner yesterday. But I learned from my mistakes yesterday and have counseled myself - today is a new day and I will move forward on a positive note and get myself back on track. I CAN do this!

    Today is a new day & tomorrow is a new day. We ALL have our "bad food" days. Don't worry about it & don't beat yourself up. Just start fresh.
