Next week is going to be eventful... Our 6 year dating anniversary is Tuesday. My grandmother goes in for her 3rd back surgery in 3 years on Wednesday (and she almost died last time, so I'm on edge). Our 4 year wedding anniversary and Halloween is Thursday. My 4-day anniversary workless weekend starts Thursday as well. We haven't really decided what we are doing for our anniversary, but I took time off anyways. We might just go see Carrie at the movies.
Yesterday I started ACE, an appetite suppressant and energy booster. A friend of mine sells it and sent me samples. Work seemed to go faster yesterday, and I didn't eat a whole lot. Today I had my massage therapy appt (an hour and a half of bliss and healing, oh so necessary in my life), and instead of being tired afterwards, I'm awake and thinking about what I want to do with my time. I'm working a half day, then going home and maybe I'll go to the park and walk. The weather is beautiful today.
I also started green coffee bean extract, which I have noticed as a primary ingredient in a lot of weight loss supplements. I started them about 5 days ago, but have eaten a lot of chocolate since then, so I'm not getting on the scale yet. I figured I'd do that once every other week.
I've got a lot of cooking to do, though, so I might skip the walk and give myself more time to cook. I'm prepping some meals before the produce goes bad. Crock pot green bean and asparagus casserole with homemade mushroom soup, Sauteed asparagus and mushrooms with goat cheese on gluten free yummy breakfast bagels, baked chicken for salads, and whatever else I come up with. I'm going to do more prepping over the weekend when I have more time, but I'm going to get started with the produce that won't last as long. I already lost my tatsoi, sadly. Maybe I'll get more in next week's box. I am going to commit to prepping once a week for the food the rest of the week. That way even when I don't want to do anything, I can just grab something out of the fridge.
Whenever I get paid, I like to buy things online. It's kind of because every time we get the mail and there's a package, it feels like my birthday. What better reason that making yourself happy? Hubs sent me a pic of what was in the mail today - 4 boxes! I don't even remember what they all are, but I'll find out later tonight when I open them :) I know that my new polka dot phone case is in one, and new Halloween rubber ducks for Hubs' collection are in another.
