I have not done too badly with food choices recently. I have been eating lots of dried fruit and organic foods. I have actually felt better. Now last night my best friend came into town and we ate at Ruby Tuesday's. (Certainly not organic.) I had the ribs with potatoes and broccolli. It was good but the portions were too big. I only ate about a third of my food. I had not seen her in about 2 years or so. She looked the same but I was changed. I had always been thin but now I am not. She told me she joined Curves about six months ago and has been religiously drinking her water and can tell a difference. She said she has lost about 19 pounds. She has never seen me other than thin so I was fearful of her seeing me now. But I guess she is my friend regardless. I tried to put that fear out of my mind and it finally went away.
Has anyone tried Fuze? They are a collection of teas, juice blends and refreshers that I have only seen at the organic food stores. They cost about $2.39 a bottle for something about the size of a large coke or just a little bigger. It is worth it. I feel better when I drink them. They have 90 calories. Today when I went to the Fresh Market, Fuze was actually on sale! Can we say YEAH!!!!! For $1.00. All the really good choices were gone. There were a lot of diet Fuze left. But I did get a flavor I had not tried before. It was Banana Colada. It takes just like a pina colada without the alcohol. Yum!
I must confess I had a little bit of a backslide. I saw creme brulee in the dessert cooler and just had to get some. It was small. About 1/3 cup worth. It was heaven on a spoon. I wonder how many calories was in that? For dinner I bought some more dried fruit. I guess I will eat that. I am debating if I really want to go out and get a dinner. I have a hankering for steak from Long Horns. They have the best steak. After those ribs I felt bloated. I had not had any real meat in about two weeks. I had had alot of beans and fish and hummus.
Hummus. There is nothing better in this world than hummus. I love it. That can be a whole meal for me. Hummus on crackers or a hummus sandwich. Hummus. Hummus. Hummus. Food. Such a quandry! I feel lighter. All those veggies, hummus and organic foods. It can get a little boring but I do want to be able to get into a swimsuit of my choice this summer. And not the one I have had for the past 2 years.
