Well, we survived Tropical Storm Hermine! We received some much needed rain & the winds only got up to about 60 mph. We lost electrical power for about 3 1/2 hours. It is so boring in the house when there is no electricity, no computer, no TV & barely enough light to read. I did get to take a good nap though. It has stopped raining now, at least for awhile. My rain gauge in the garden says we received 5 1/2 inches! Yea!!!
I have been reading "Potatoes, not Prozac". According to this book, I am a Sugar Addict. No kidding! I do watch the things that I eat (from the plate, to the spoon, to my mouth! lol!). Seriously, I eat freshly ground whole wheat bread. I need to make some more, I ate the last slice yesterday. I eat very little white rice (only on sushi, if they do not have brown rice). I don't make anything with white flour. I do eat flour tortillas (1 or 2) at Sazon's (they make the best tortillas!). I try to cook from scratch. I haven't been eating pasta much until lately. I have to cut that out. Bad girl!!!
The book said that Step One is keeping a Food Journal of everything I eat, how I feel physically & emotionally, throughout the day in order to get an idea of how food effects me physically & emotionally. I am also supposed to look for eating patterns. I started one today. I don't have to change how I eat yet. I am trying to be aware of what I am eating though.
I am also starting on Step Two - Eating Three Meals a Day at Regular Intervals. I had not been doing that in the past. I started today. I think the only bad things I have eaten is a Hershey's Chocolate Almond Bar (1.45 oz size) & I had to take 4 Excedrin's throughout the day. I'll be lucky if I go to sleep tonight! I don't have any Diet Coke's at the house, so I haven't had any of those, but I did drink 2 Diet Root Beers. Oh well.
Amazing how much hair color I can get all over my bathroom when I color my hair! I swear I cleaned it all up afterward, but when I go back later it is all over the walls, the door, & the floor! Yikes!
