Yep. Coming to you a little late. Again. We’ve been having a heat wave and after church and an ice-cold Acai bowl, I spent a good hour looking for my prescription eye drops, prepping dinner and lunches for the week and the day slipped past me.
What you see above is the base for what I’ve been eating this past week and what I plan to eat this week. I have Tilapia and chicken to place and top. After a week of clean eating, I’ve lost seven pounds.
I don’t think it’s so much what I am eating, because I often eat like this but it’s the fact that I’ve pretty much cut out salt. After my earlier meltdown, I’ve been focusing more on lowering the BP so since salt has always been my vice, I am kicking it out of my diet.
I just found those eye drops I was looking for. Whew. I thought I was losing my mind.
After this post, I hope to sit down and read for a bit. May not happen though until after dinner.
This week is just going to be one of those weeks. I have something I am working on at work that might take a little bit of time, and I have two Back to School nights to attend. I will be missing book club this week because of one of those nights but both kids will be performing so I’ve gotta go.
I am reading Villa America, a novelization of the Murphy family, who happened to be the subject for Tender is the Night. I am over 50% into it and it’s holding my attention but I am waiting to get past the war and into the meat of the book.
Later tonight we will be watching Fear the Walking Dead. I thought the pilot last week was great. Good acting, compelling story line and it’s set in Los Angeles. It’s the perfect kind of TV for me right now.
Tonight we are grilling chicken, corn and roasting little red potatoes. There will be La Brea Bakery rolls too.
After my health outburst the other day, I’m grateful that there are some things that I can change. They may not fix the overall picture but there are still things I can do and I am grateful that I’ve got an opportunity to try.
What are you up to today? Anything fun?
