WOD Challenge 7-28-22 He Says I’m Anal

Well, maybe I am, but is it my fault I want a sense of order in this crazy, upside-down world we are living in?

So I want the towels laid on the edge of the sink, not wadded up and thrown on the counter. Don’t put the dirty dishes in the drain where the clean dishes are, or better yet, rinse them off and stick them in the dishwasher…it’s right there! And for heaven sakes, don’t put large paper plates in my kitchen trash, put them in the trash on the patio! Is that so much to ask?

I do not feel guilt for being the way I am. The world is out of control, I have to have some sense of control in my own little world. I follow traffic laws, but no one else seems to care. We went to look at a Jeep tonight (unfortunately during rush hour) and I never saw so much lawlessness and rude, hateful behavior in one hour as I did tonight. I was in a totally bad mood by the time we got to the restaurant. It was blazing hot, traffic was backed up on every freeway, and people were trying to pass on the shoulder, cutting people off, honking at others who did the same while holding their phones in front of their faces, motorcycles driving at a high rate of speed in between cars…the list goes on and on.

I really needed that margarita (it WAS date night after all) by the time we got to Frijoles!

The Jeep was a hot mess, no ac, mushy brakes, loose suspension, twenty-five years old and he wanted 11,000 dollars??? We’ll keep looking thank you.

I could have talked about my real causes of guilt, but I’ve talked about that a dozen times. I don’t apologize for my need to control my corner of the universe, do you? I’m the butt of the joke in my family because everyone knows how I am and they make fun of me. Thank you for listening to my rant. 😉

At least he puts his clothes in the hamper and not on the floor next to it!

PS: Everyone I know knows I’m married to a good egg. He cooks, he cleans, he is calm when I am stressed and vice versa. He does almost all of the yard work. We are a good team, but I have my little quirks. I know we aren’t all perfect, but if he has any with me, he hasn’t shared them. Except maybe I talk to much 🤣😂

WOD Challenge 07-15-21 Not Pleased

Well folks, I gotta say I’m not very pleased with my self after yesterday’s splurge with my dad at lunch!

Dad and I at Ernies, and splurged with fried catfish and shrimp, fries, and hush puppies!

Then again, that hasn’t been my only splurge lately. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t really been trying very hard with my diet. Just the other day, Dave and I had lunch at Fresco’s, and I had brisket nachos, with a baby margarita and he got a meal that included “elotes” Mexican corn on the cob! I’d been dying to try it, and there’s was just ok. My son, Josh said I must try Fuel City; a giant gas station that sells Mexican street corn on the cob or in a cup. He said it’s to die for!

Dave and I had a decadent lunch at Fresco’s

Of course all this rich food will take a toll on my body eventually if I don’t knock it off, but I can’t seem to get motivated lately. Am I still in vacation mode? Depressed at the way the world is going? I just don’t know, but there is a bit of good news. I have no pictures for the things I’m about to share, well, I have one, but anyway, I have been experimenting with new things.

One is, I’ve discovered Truly’s, an alcoholic beverage that has 2 carbs and 1g of sugar! They pack a punch, though, so be careful! Each Truly is 5grams of alcohol and they are kind of drying because they are hard seltzer’s.

This is the Wild Berry Truly drink.

The best flavors are the punches, but they are really hard to find. This one is at least drinkable, it’s called Wild Berry. Before these I tried the Tropical fruit flavors…awful! They tasted like carbonated water with a piece of fruit dipped in it! 🤮

The next product I’ve tried lately it Qubes, which are an apple cider vinegar gummy! What a great way to get your daily dose of ACV and they taste wonderful! I got a free sample (plus shipping, of course) and I plan to buy more. Much easier than getting those teas or shots of ACV down, and this way, I can get a daily dose instead of every few days. They don’t bother my system either, like real ACV can if you drink too much.

The third thing (doesn’t have anything to do with my diet) is a CBD gummy for pain. Some of you may know I’ve been experimenting with CBD gummies and other products, and Moonwlkr is one of my favorite brands! Recently I bought a sample pack of gummies with CBD and CBG which is a combo of cannabinoids that work on pain receptors in your body. Each gummy has 25mg of CBD and 10 mg of CBG. I started with half of a gummy, since I am on muscle relaxers at night before bed. They really work well, and my shoulder doesn’t hurt as bad. The flavor is mixed berries (see a trend anyone?) and I have to say, they taste delicious, just like all of there gummies.

New gummies from Moonwlkr.

So, hopefully I haven’t been to harmful to myself, and things will balance out. I just can’t justify denying myself yummy foods lately, but normally, during the week, I still try to be good. Most of the time when Dad and I go to lunch, I always have a salad. Yesterday, I decided I was going to splurge, because, like his doctor said, every once in a while won’t hurt! Still, I feel guilty, and my body didn’t like it. I have to say though, it was a delicious mistake! 😋😘

PS: If anyone wants to try a sample let me know and send me your email and I will send a code so that we either each get $10 off our next purchase or I can get a sample sent to you. All of Moonwlkr’s gummies are great and really deliver results that work! Self care is important, so if you are anxious, have difficulty with sleep, or with pain, you should definitely try some of these gummies! They are a safe, legal way to get relief of your symptoms in the comfort of your own home.
