Emotional Mess

Yup, thats me. I really have no idea why. I cried for about 35 minutes this evening. I am pretty sure that hubs may think I am crazy. Lol. Sometimes a girl just needs to cry I guess.

Plus, I didn't eat well today. Kira and I had a girls day at the hair salon and shopping. Now, I am completely exhausted.

Ryan (hubs) and I stayed up late last night. I love talking with him and giggling with him like we did when we first started dating *this is something I want to remember for personal reasons*.

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- NONE
Lunch- Spicy Chick-fil-a sandwich, fries, diet lemonade
Dinner- tuna sandwich on a sandwich thin, 5 homemade fried pickles (hubs request), broc & cheese rice. I didn't really eat that much. Too emotionally drained

and THAT is exacly what I got! And right now I don't care if I just consumed 1,000 calories of McDonald goodness because I just needed it. STAT!

Being a nurse is super hard, have a mentioned it. I took an oath to be my patient's advocate and that is exactly what I will be for the rest of my career. I am proud that I stood up for my patient today, even if that meant getting my ass chewed out by a doctor. I'm glad the family made the right decision, and I feel as though I made a difference. But, all of that made McDonalds a requirement!
What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- Sugar Free Oatmeal--YUCK!
Lunch- Santa Fe Salad--YUMMY!
Dinner- 2 Cheeseburgers and a Large Fry. I admit it. I could lie and say that I only had 1 cheeseburger, but I won't. They were worth every bite, and will be worth every bit of diarrhea! HAHAHA!
Diet Dr. Pepper, Water, Diet Coke

So, I'm thinking I am hitting the sack as soon as I post this. I didn't have my wallet with me today, so that means I have to get gas in the morning before work. Speaking of work, I am picking up extra on Friday. What was I thinking? New Car Pay OFF Debt. Lol

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- High Fiber Oatmeal (speaking of oatmeal I always use water instead of milk)
Lunch- Santa Fe Chicken Salad (surprised?), Peach
Dinner- 2 BLT (on 100 cal bread), Baked French Fries, FF Cottage Chz.
Snacks- 2 Twizzlers, 8 Peanut Butter Pretzels

Probably shouldn't of had 2 BLTs, buuut I was absolutely starving today. I think I may have eaten earlier than norm.

Anyways, nighty night!

OCD? Maybe...

It is a known fact that I pack way far in advance...Well...needless to say Kira and I could leave tonight on vacation! I am pretty much packed for the 2 of us. Hubs on the other hand waits until the night before to pack. I just cannot do that. It make me crazy if I don't feel organized. I really wouldn't say that I am really that organized of a person in my every day life though (I should work on it.)

Anyways, here is a pic of my craziness. Can it be said that we still have 2 weeks before we leave. Oh, and if we are stalking me, you should know that someone WILL be staying at our house and you have seen my dog so don't try breaking in!

Grill Out!

Tonight we had by far my favorite summer time meal! It is such a fav that I actually took pictures of it!

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- None...went to church instead
Lunch- Pepperjack Cheese Grilled Cheese, Pasta Salad
Snack- 4 Whole Wheat Ritz Crackers
The 1st picture is Kale Chips. My Momma introduced me to these. I never thought I would like kale, but a little EVOO S&P in the oven for 30 minutes...DELISH! The 2nd pic is loaded mash potatoes made with FF sour cream, skim milk, FF cheese, and turkey bacon. The final pic are kabobs and grilled pineapple! YUMMY!
Desert- Watermelon!
Water, Diet Dr. Pepper!

I went ahead and got my lunch ready for the work week...and they are...SANTA FE CHICKEN SALADS! I believe I am addicted!

It was a pretty great weekend, and one where we didn't have to do a thing! I have an orientee at work this week so hopefully it will be a decent work week!

Avocado from Subway??

So, I have been listening to the Subway ads talking about their new avocado. I absolutely LOVE avocado so I have been anxious to try it. The hubs was in Corydon getting the car ready for vacation and called to see what I wanted for lunch, so I decided to go for it.


SO DISAPPOINTED! You can tell that it is straight out of a container, if not even a CAN! It has zero flavor, terrible texture, and it taste bitter! I had to put mayo on my sub just so I could finish it! Thumbs down Subway!

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- Skipped...I didn't wake up until 11!
Lunch- Subway 6in turkey, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, terrible avocado, lite mayo sub with a bag of Baked Lays
Dinner- Chinese Buffet. Can we say swollen? I'm sure I will be tomorrow, but I feel like I kept my portions small and left feeling satisfied but not stuffed.
Water, Water, Water!

Si Si, another Corona Light Por Favor!

So, it was anther super busy, run my ass off type of day at the hospital...I was super busy. Maybe because we were so short, who knows? I feel as though I did really good on what I ate today...UNTIL DINNER!

Hubs and I went to our favorite Mexican eatery called El Nopalito! It is by far the BEST Mexican food around. Forget the Tex Mex junk that most people call Mexican. This is authentic. And what I love most is as soon as I walk in the manager brings me my Corona Light! I don't even have to ask! What more could a hard working nurse ask for at the end of the day?!?

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- Weight Smart Oatmeal with some homemade peach jam in it
Lunch- Santa Fe Chicken Salad (apparently I am on a kick!)
Snack- Bing Cherries....then I gave the rest to a co worker for doing my patient's trach care for me (my LEAST favorite thing EVER!)
Dinner- Hubs and I share a single order of steak/shrimp fajitas! I must say...I did have my far share of chips, salsa, and guac! LOVE El Nop!
Water and 2 Corona Light!

Lets see...I'm tired and irritated! After a busy day of dealing with a noncompliant patient at the hospital I walk out and find that MY CAR WON'T START! Over it! The long tan Taurus really needs to last me 1 more year. More and more stuff seems to be going wrong with it these days.

My noncompliant patient only allowed me to eat lunch for 15 minutes so I didn't do too bad today.

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- 1c Fiber One Raisin Cereal (my fav and has 11 grams of FIBER!)
Lunch- Santa Fe Chicken Salad (I think I could eat this all the time--having it for lunch again tomorrow!)
Snack- Grapes
Dinner- Swiss Steak and Mash Potatoes (forgot the veg!)
Water and Tea

Lunch- Let over Hawaiian Pizza on Delite Crust (3 small slices)

Sleepy, and Cold--Thats ME!

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast- Delite Turkey Sausage, Egg White, & Cheese Crossiant
Lunch- I 1st made a Smart Ones frozen dinner and took 1 bite and threw it out, then I made a can of soup. Took a bite, threw it out. NOTHING WAS GOOD. So, I settled with a ham and pepperjack cheese on whole wheat bun, and a couple Sun Chips. It is blah...
Nom Nom! Papa Murphys Hawaiian Pizza (I see lunch for tomorrow!)
Water and Iced Tea (not sweetened with suga!)
Dessert- I may have a little scoop of ice cream tonight...we shall see and I'll let you know tomorrow.

Happy Birthday America! (a day late)

We had a nice relaxing day...sent the child to her biological mother's :( for a few days and then went to my parent's for dinner.

I made my nephew cry at dinner because he wouldn't eat his dinner, so he couldn't have watermelon and I ate the watermelon in front of him. Oops! Gotta learn somehow (him, not me)! Buuut I made up for it by taking him outside to play with Bruce the Cat. Score for Aunt B (thats ME!)

Here is the child dressed for the 4th. Then I channelled my inner Pretty Nails employee and did her toes! Love having a girl!

What I Ate...on a HOLIDAY (YIKES!)
Brunch- 3 pieces of homemade french toast (made with 1 egg, skim milk, spices, & vanilla), 5 pieces of bacon, 1 glass of skim chocolate milk
Lunch- NOTHING (see what I ate above)
Appetizer- crab/shrimp dip with baked chips that Momma made, 8 peel and eat shrimp
Dinner- grilled lean hamburger with blue cheese/bacon/mushrooms/onions (only ate 1/2, gave the rest to hubs!), roasted potatoes, roasted veggies
Dessert- low fat homemade cherry delite, and the infamous making child cry watermelon
5 glasses of Pinot (with a headache today)

Forgive Me Father, For I Have Sinned (I'm not even Catholic!)

For I am completely in love with a another man...150 pounds, tan, and loves to kiss me all over! I am willing to reveal him publicly. Oh, and my husband does know about this other man. I think he may be in love as well...

This is Sebastian...I never really knew how completely in love I would/could ever be with an animal. Sebastian is our 5 year old English Mastiff. We haven't always had him. He was my brother's for the 1st 3 years of his life. When my bro and sister-in-law were building their house I took the dog. 9 months later when they moved in...I kept the dog. If they wanted him back, I honestly don't think I could have given him back.

He is crazy spoiled...sleeps with Kira most nights, but if its stormin' he has to get in bed with Momma. This dog in my therapy, and brings me a crazy amount of happiness. It is crazy to get so attached. The day he dies, someone may have to sedated me.

Ok, so this post has made me look like a complete nut. Sad thing is...its all true.

Now, I am going to share a bowel of popcorn with my our bed...while hubs in washing the car. Judge me...I don't care!

I'm still awake!

The only explanation for this is that I had a good day at the work place (now if only the next 2 will be as good!)

I do believe I did pretty good today (except dinner) and here is why...

Hubs made these:

So typically we would both eat 2...I told him to make me 1 and only 1! I should not be tempted with another 380 calorie goodness!

So, here is what I ate:
Breakfast- Weight Smart Maple/Brown Sug Oatmeal (I wish it was a good as it smelled)
Lunch- 1c of the homemade Tuna Helper from last night (even better today), Fresh Pineapple
Dinner- See Above (only ONE)
Snack- 2.5c Home popped popcorn made with 1 T. of canola oil
Water x 3 glasses (I need to drink more) and 1 Pink Lemonade (5 calories)

Lunch it packed and ready for tomorrow! Nighty Night!
