Bean Happy

May 3rd, 2006 at 07:34 pm

I love tortillas and beans. Kinda simple statement, but man, we have been eating a lot of them and they are so tasty. Corn tortillas, flour tortillas, whole wheat tortillas. Refried beans, fat free beans, black bean. Some chicken or onions or veggies or tomato. Open faced or rolled. They make me pretty happy and Iím satisfied.

My car didnít cost as much as I thought. Oil change, general check up, rear brakes fixed up, and a serpentine belt, $125.90. Not bad. My place may not be the cehapest in town, but all the employess have fair benefits, and I know that they are super honest, so I never have to lie awake questioning work I had done.

I walked to work today, because of the car. Iíll try to do the same tomorrow, even though my carís done. Iím doing well on the Credible Threat, and getting below 190 into the 180s is darned close. A lot of folks at work are doing weight watchers; I decided not to, not just because of the cost but because it didnít seem to fit me. Iíve heard wonderful things about it, but donít feel it would suit me right now. The benefit, though, is that now at work there are quite a few of us working to be healthier and slimmer. I now have a regular walking buddy, which makes me take my breaks, too. The camaraderie isnít about food and potlucks and candy, itís about being motivated to make positive change.

Friday weíre invited to a Barbecue and Poker Tournament (followed by live game). I only have $26 left from my 2006 poker winnings, so I need to win or stay even to be able to keep playing. Iím not sure what Iíll bring; potato salad sounds good and easy and cheap. And to grill? Perhaps some eggplant. Iím not vegetarian, but I do have a nice, pretty eggplant. Iím intimidated by cooking meat sometimes, and though I love sausage a lot of it has nitrates which may (or may not) trigger my migraines.

I've had a series of overall good days, and that's helped me feel more energetic.

Friday I train nine people all day. I love training, but I know I'll be wiped at the end. It's good to be energetic going in.

    Great job on the weight loss! Your an inspiration! Credible threat has worked for me for other things, but has'nt worked for losing weight. May have to try weight watchers!
