Day Fifty-Nine

April 20th, 2016 at 07:18 am

Calories: 1655

Tough day. There was a bag of potato chips I couldn't leave alone. The good news is they are gone. They bad news is they are gone in my stomach.

Still, since I think my normal eating is easily 2000+, even the 1600's are a success, of sorts.

Iggy's visit to the vet yesterday was $25, and it was the last one. His ears are clearer, if not completely clear. He seems to have a ball of wax in one ear which may loosen on its own. I still have drops to put in. He'll get a re-check when he goes in for his annual.

I did another load of laundry yesterday.

In the interest of trying to keep my credit card bill payable, I'm not going to buy an airline ticket. I will make the trip to Florida by car, after the CC is paid off. I have the time, and I have the skills to make it cheap. Last time I did this I saved $$ over what the plane fare would have been. And I rather enjoy a road trip, even though this is a long one.

I have ten items on my grocery list, so I guess it is time to go shop. I've been doing well at stretching my food and avoiding waste, so I'm not feeling any urgency to shop. But I have to remember that if I buy more than ten items, I have a hard time carrying them up the stairs. I had enough of a struggle yesterday, carrying Iggy in his case. (Glad that's done for a while!)

I've settled on my reunion outfit. Plain slacks, a dressy top, kitten heels. I hope I hit the right blend of dressy and casual. But if not, I won't worry about it.

I have a coupon for a free mani-pedi, so I'll be getting that before I go. I'll probably need a hair trim, too.

HBO is airing its free watchathon on Xfinity on Demand this week, so I am enjoying some good movies. 5 Floors Up, A Little Chaos, The Fault in Our Stars. I have a couple of DVD's from the library, but I may just try to renew them so I can take full advantage of the free movies this week. I think Cinemax (?) is also free this week. I may never leave the couch!

    Bleah, sorry, didn't know the double less-thans commented out my txt. Pls delete first comment.

    Depends on the size of the bag of chips. I write as someone who had wicked salt-starch addiction. My kid brought a 1.7oz bag of chips for me recently: took me two days to eat. I used to go through 9oz bag in 45 minutes, then wonder how, when I reduced my caloric intake, I ended up with a 35-inch waist, ballooning out of my size 12s. Now I'm at 31-inch waist (45% Waist-to-height ratio), 21.6 BMI, can't get into size 12s without a belt to cinch them up, and I still weaken - had 2 oz of homemade seasoned sweet potato chips with chipotle mayo yesterday, but I didn't have it alone.

    Yep, the potato chips got me yesterday too! They're not quite gone, but I'll try to ignore the rest of them. They'd been in the cupboard for weeks, so really it's amazing I resisted for this long!

    What's going on with us? I ate a bag of chips yesterday too--and two rice krispie bars today. Eeek. I think I'm discouraged with the mess in my house and it was comfort eating. And dang my husband for buying a giant box of small bags at Costco when I was gone. I'll blame him.
