Last week I had nachos three times at three different restaurants. Now, I'm not a dietitian or nutritionist or anything, but I think that might not be good for me.
I made beef stroganoff for the first time ever last night. There was a recipe on the back of a pack of noodles I'd bought, and it seemed like a good meal for a cold, snowy, winter night. It was good, alright. So good that I ate way too much and made myself a little bit sick. I'm still full from last night's dinner, you guys. And it's after 4pm, now. All I've had today is one bowl of oatmeal and one cup of green tea. I realize I probably should have more food than that, but right now I just don't see how I can fit anything else in my bloated belly.
Last week was a bad food week. I did a lot of eating after 10pm, stuffing my face until way past full and eating large quantities of not-so-good things. I'm gonna blame my period and get back on track, starting TODAY.
When was the last time you ate something good, but then overdid it?

On the days I work (not as often as I need to, unfortunately) I often have intense moments of fatigue or job-hatred. Last month I started combating this by concentrating on thoughts of the things I'm grateful for or appreciate in my life.
A brief list of those things:
A walk on a beach in South Carolina at dawn.
HUBS. Especially when he does silly, funny, nerdy, nice things.
A long, hot bath filled with bubbles where I read lots of magazines and shrivel up nicely.
Healthy cats. Inside and outside the house.
A good meal, home-cooked or not.
Magic hour (am and pm).
Doing what I need to do when I need to do it.
My own creativity.
Good new things.
Pink, purple, sequins and glitter!
What's good in your life right now?
