Hello, Old Friend

Wow.  It’s been almost a year since I’ve been here.  A year and a half since I’ve posted goals.  I’m baaaaaack! As far as the food posting, I’ve been pretty consistent, just in a different spot:


That’s right, I am a meallogger hero!  And my junior high school geography teacher told me I’d never get anywhere. Ha!

The only problem is I have been posting crap: cookies, wine, cocktails made from Trader Joe’s swill.  And lately it has gotten so bad [scrapes cookie crumbs from molars] I haven’t even posted.  [le sigh]

Before I outgrow all my clothes and find I made it all the way to my daughter’s wedding slightly buzzed (she’s five now), I want to recommit myself to healthy me.

I know December is a hella stupid time to set weight-loss goals.  Instead, I want to recommit myself to being committed.  Here are my goals for December:

– Some sort of exercise every single flippin’ day.  50 squats and/or 20 pushups counts.  I.  Must.  Move.  my fitbit got run over,  and I need to get myself moving without daily calibration.  I need to, or I will not have any pants left.

– Alcohol only two days a week.  It’s so yummy!  And it makes me forget my woes so quickly.  I need to keep my woes in mind so I can annihilate them rather than inebriate them. Divorce hurts.  Poverty hurts.  Alcohol is more painful and expensive than I can afford.  ‘Mmmmm ‘K?

– Healthy eating (no grains, dairy, sugar) five nights per week.  For serious.

Yo!  I am writing it here to keep myself honest.

Hi Self.  I love you.  I want you to be healthy and fit.  I want you to check out your own biceps and say, “damn!” silently to said biceps.  I am an atheist.  I get one life. Why the heck am I wasting it with crap?  Now I go to bed with a book and wake up to workout.  ‘Cause I like wearing clothes in small sizes and feeling fit and seeing life and loving it.  Life.  Is.  Good.

School tomorrow!
Cauliflower mash on shepherds pie. In addition to wine, finished the champagne punch.

Smoothie only fruit. Upset stomach this am from last night’s beets. Ugh.

Snacks from 6-10: story party including champagne punch. But no sweets, dairy or wheat. Yay! Knees already feeling better.

Rice flour pancakes with agave maple syrup.

Pizza and salad and wine for dinner.
:-( plus a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow afterwards. I did manage to avoid the birthday ice cream cake though. Small victories!

Happy 2014

Not really feeling happy so far. Maybe meticulously fixating on what I eat will help me to feel better. That or exercise. Or eating more chocolate. I didn’t take pics but this was my day:

Black coffee
Berries and pineapple
Cucumber and dip
Two handfuls rice crackers
Soup with lentils, big salad, 1.5 glasses red wine

Pretty good all in all as I went to a waffle party and also wanted to eat my weight in chocolate. Mmm… Chocolate.

Here’s to being more aware.

Gluten Starbucks breakfast

No other reasonable breakfast option, but at least omitted cheese.

Still a pretty good day.
