I joined Weight Watchers. It had to be done. I decided that if I get preggo whilst-a-watching-my-weight, then so be it. But until then, I am going to do all that I can to lose this baggage!
I truly believe that journaling my food intake will help. I'll still eat the GOOD foods that I know are better for me (and forget the processed junk and artificial sweeteners!), but at least this will help me to track it. Plus, weighing in each week helps, too, eh?
Yes. It does.
This morning, while walking, I noticed that my asthma was really, really bad. Combined reasons why:
1. I ate a meat-lover's pizza on Saturday. Not the whole thing, hello! Just some of it. In fact, I had a massive headache within hours of eating it, too. The only thing that made it go away was some herbal tea and rest.
2. I had a lot of dairy and I made a TON of whole-wheat cinnamon rolls (with butter). I ate way too many.
3. I had so much cheese. So. Much.
4. Slightly colder weather. But not enough to be a problem; I'm usually okay unless it's literally frozen outside.
And today, I'm paying for it. My asthma is awful and I know why. So! This morning was green smoothies, and off we go with some more veggies/fruits/nuts/seeds/legumes. Bring on the quinoa, baby!
I got an iPhone! Can I just tell you how wonderful it is to have a phone that is RELIABLE!? I have only had 2 cell phones in my life. Once in college (totally old school flip with an antenna) and then my last one, which I got in 2007. My latest one was a joke --dropped calls, texts coming days after people sent them... it was frustrating. So, I was over-joyed when Brandon got me a phone that not only works, but won't cause me stress! Huzzah! It's also nice to be connected to the internet pretty much anywhere, too.
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month! Go here and learn how you can help prevent abuse and protect your children.
We fixed the cat situation. Brandon bought a cat door to replace our other cat door and only Kaz can get in and out through a magnetic thingy on his collar. It's working great! All the greedy neighborhood cats have tried to get into it and they can't. But Kaz can! Huzzah! No more strange animals in my laundry room! However, they are still pooping in my garden. I need to fix that, next...
I love my Savior. That is all.
