But I do what I can.
First, you have to understand: IT’S JULY. I am consumed by the Tour de France. I watch in the morning. I watch when I get home from work. I watch before bed. The same race all three times in a single day. Today is a rest day for them. I played Bunco. And now I’m going to watch the recap of the first 9 days of the Tour. Lucky for me there’s a TV next to the computer, where I’ve also been typing in recipes. Bryna dearest.>
Ok, so now that you understand that, please also understand that I’m trying to diet. So naturally, all I think about is eating. What am I going to eat? When am I going to eat it? How much of it am I going to eat? When can I eat again? How many calories are there in raspberry preserves and can I have some with my single slice of toast and Smart Balance butter for breakfast without breaking the calorie bank. (Oh, I may have forgotten to mention that IHOP had a 55¢ pancake special today to celebrate their 55th anniversary. Yup… I ate a short stack of pancakes and 2% milk AND left a tip for $3.00.) Then I went to Bunco, where food is also served. In an attempt to not overeat at Bunco, I ate “dinner” before I left. An ear of corn, a tomato and a serving of my zucchini bake concoction. Yes, I was still hungry. I’m still hungry now and I had a sliver of Marie Calendar’s chocolate cream pie at Bunco. And Chex Mix. And cheese. And half a dozen pringles. And a bottle of strawberry daiquiri. Also, typing recipes isn’t helping. I would say the majority of them are dessert recipes, and they are tempting. (Use Ritz crackers… hey, I have Ritz crackers… and shredded cheddar… hey I have that too… You see where this is going?)
Watching TV generally leads to eating. Except I can’t. So yesterday (Sunday) in an attempt to “not be hungry” I drank about 8 glasses of water. I got a lot of exercise going up and down to the bathroom all day. (I also worked at church yesterday because the other girl was sick and I didn’t have time to do my regular Sunday morning breakfast, so I ate an apple danish and was ravenous when I got home.)
So with the exception of watching TV and thinking about food, I haven’t been doing much. Except I did wake up this morning for a great idea for one of my felt projects and I am busy trying to see if it’s viable.
Just what I need. Another project.
