ZEN & the Art of Facebook Thoughts and Status

March 1st
so....I am on my 4th week now of dietary changes and lifestyle changes. I eliminated all but "natural" sugars from my diet, no junk food at all, no pre-mixed/packaged foods, mainly veggies and fruits and good proteins, lots of raw, you get the drift. So at the beginning of the week I was still only down 1lb and despite eating a 1350 calorie diet per day consisting of the above, I was hungry all ...of the time, even after I ate. Never felt anything like it! I was at work and was telling a friend there about my inability to lose weight, my constant hunger, and what I was eating... she (being a diabetic and working in the medical field for many moons) said, Patti, your blood is out of whack...if you are hungry like that your blood sugar is doing it and you need to eat more! Now normally I should be eating 1100-1200 calories a day, but I was given a plan of 1350 calories which was actually much less than what I had been eating, and should have seen me losing 2 lbs a week. So increase that I thought? I will never lose weight! But, I gave it a shot....I added protein and healthy fats to my three main meals ie: chicken in my salad, eggs, nuts, olives, peanut butter etc. GUESS WHAT? 4 days later, I lost another 3 lbs! It works go figure LOL! eat more and I lose more, I am so weird!
This is a crying shame......
"Poor little Ruby is ill...staying home with her today to keep an eye on her."
A man came home from work and found his 3 children outside, still in their pajam...as, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden.

The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door; he found ...an even bigger mess.

A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, in the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor.

Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.

She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?'

She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day????

''Yes," was his incredulous reply.

She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

I think it is a crying shame that a weeks worth of groceries for two people just cost $170. Why? because it is all fresh fruit and veggies or organic stuff or reduced sodium or whole grain... the healthier you eat the more you pay....it is a conspiracy I say to keep the people eating unhealthy cheaper stuff.

This is an average breakfast for me now. Today: a piece of gluten free chia seed toast, hard boiled egg, blueberry smoothie with almond milk and brown rice protein powder, and a big glass of water and lemon. mmmm good!
