The post about an injured bunny, a Chinese buffet and a pretty necklace...

  • Meanwhile yesterday on Instagram...
  • It's coffeetime and I'm running at 6:30. Gotta get rid of my bloat. Experimenting is good. Eating grains again taught me that I'm intolerant to many foods that made me morbidly obese. This is a valuable piece of information to have. I can almost with 100% certainty say that I'm not in danger of binging on grains again. But, I didn't have any of the yummy ones. If I allowed myself to eat pasta and bread again, I just may not care how they make me feel. But I'll not go there. It's not worth it. 
  • Today I take my youth to a Chinese buffet for a celebratory lunch. It's our last day of group and it's something we do to say goodbye. I'm sticking to protein and veggies. No fruit, nothing with sauce. I ate at the Mandarin weekly while I was losing weight and I still lost every week. It can be done if you're really mindful. That and you gotta drink a ton of water to flush out the sodium. 
  • Thank God it's Friday. I need the weekend to regroup before I plan a very busy week ahead. I'm back to work next week, then off again till after Labor Day. Gotta plan a mini vacation to Montreal...

  • Today's run was pretty slow. And it did not happen without incident. I ran into that little guy. I felt bad for him. He was in the middle of the road and had a bloody nose. I called animal control but they were closed. A woman came out with some recycling and I asked if she had gloves. She had her husband's work gloves in the garage so we moved Bugs to the grass. He didn't even try to get away. The woman said she'd keep an eye on him and call animal control again. Now I'm thinking about this rabbit. I stayed as long as I could but I had to get back home to get ready for work. Poor bunny. I hope he's okay. I think another animal got to him and he's in shock. Anyway, my run was a touch ass dragging. Glad I did it though. Needed to get sweaty. Now I'm dressed all girly and on my way to work. Happy Friday y'all;)

  • Today's food haul at the Mandarin. And after I've worked out all the calories, it's just under 1000. Three plates of protein and veggies or a Big Mac meal? Mine's better. Just saying. And my fortune. More exciting if you add "in bed" at the end. Heading home. Sparkling water with lemon awaits me. Or wine, maybe wine...

  • Today was a good clothing day. I got to wear the $5 dress that I snagged from Queen St. West when I went shopping after recoding the Marilyn Denis Show back in April. I wore leggings with it and some 4" wedge sandals. Entire outfit? $23 not including jewelery. The leggings were $8 at Walmart (George), The dress was cash and carry for $5 at a going out of business sale. I couldn't try it on. Just had to hope for the best. And nothing was sized. The wedges were $10 at Value Village (Guess). The necklace is Stella and Dot. It's the Bloom necklace. Got it at a cash and carry as well. Love it! 
  • I ended up having #winetime when I got home. It is the weekend after all. And on my way home I swung into Marshall's and bought some gloves for the gym. Calluses be gone! I'm going to get pretty girly hands again if it kills me...

  • My food stats from today. Another average day for me. Still gotta work on lowering the fat intake. Lots of meat and stir-fried veggies adds up. Especially when I don't prepare it myself. Then I'm never sure how much oil was used. One thing for sure, I have the low carb thing down pat. 
  • I'm off to bed. I'm going to the gym in the morning. Gonna do a HIIT workout on the dreadmill and work my upper body on the machines. Tony's most worried about upper body and core with me. He says legs and cardio are good. My upper body, especially abs, suck. So that's where I'm putting extra work in. 
  • The adorable boy on the right? The cutest thing I saw on social media today. Thanks to my co-worker for sharing. Made me smile big...
