New Week


I took to my bed this weekend like a true southern woman with the vapors to avoid unpleasantness.  Housework, bills and commitments mean pillows covers and sleeping.  This leads to name calling of my own self....you are a bum, you are such a procrastinator, you are no good...etc. AAARRRGGGGHHHH

I did manage to make it to my meeting last night but left 15 minutes before it was over. I just had to get out.  The last time I did that was in 1995 when I left a meeting, drove to a car dealership and bought a brand new Toyota.  I drove that car for 8 years and I did not even know I was going to buy it until it struck me in the middle of the meeting to do that.  Last night when I left the meeting, I went to the grocery store and bought six days worth of the food I eat when I diet.  It was cheaper than the 1995 trip.

My yearly review for my job is this Wednesday and I had better pull out of this funk before then so I can talk about how great I've done all year (good grief.)

I love Mondays!  I feel the newness of fresh starts, a chance to get it right, do it better.  I am a working girl and not a housework person.  I am a collage artist and not a floor mopper.  I like to read books not dust them.  I love to sleep in the bed not make it.  I love to fling my clothes not hang them.  I like to fill my ashtrays not empty them. So there!  Bite me.  ;-)

I have 1000 calories waiting for me today in a delicious combination and I am enthused to start.

Hey, have you seen "livestrong.com" ? It is an awesome calorie counter. And you get more calories when you exercise!!!

I love Mondays too. And I really love that you are grateful even when feeling down.

I do my share of housework but I would also rather read books than dust them. Good luck with the new diet this week Pam.

Let's see--1000 calories in a combination. Not sure what I could do with that but cabbage would be a start. Add in some tomatoes and carrots and beans. Voila--diet soup. I would add spice of course. Take care, Pammie and have a good Monday.

I too would rather read books than dust them. Rather cook than do dishes. Rather lounge in the bed than make it, rather buy clothes than wash them. I could go on and on. Right there with you.

1000?! Thats nothing...don't starve yourself!

fitday.com is the best calorie counter, and it breaks down all your nutrients into a colorful graph.

1000 calories does not leave much room for error. Good luck, Madison Mama.

You need at least 1200 to get all of your nutrients. Just sayin'. I am back on my regime too after a week long relapse with New York extra sharp cheddar cheese. (See I dont have a problem, I buy the really good stuff, LOL!)
