Healthy Dinner

Healthy Dinner, originally uploaded by A!ison.

Today is my first day back on Weight Watchers. I weighed in ten pounds less than I anticipated so even though I’ve gained 15 pounds since last October, I couldn’t be more thrilled that I’m not as fat as I thought AND I’ve stopped the bleeding.

For dinner I had the lemon chive whole wheat pasta I bought from the Farmer’s Market, added some sautéed zucchini and peppers and a side of cottage cheese. What’s crazy is I forgot what it felt like to be SATISFIED. For so long now I have been eating till I’m way too full. After an hour or so of being comfortable again I’d want to eat again. It feels good to be on the right track.


Don’t know if I said this before but it’s hot here in Florida! It’s 9 o’clock at night and it’s still 85 degrees out. It just does not cool off at night which makes it easy for the morning to get hot fast.

The other thing is there is a constant buzzing here. Found out they are called cicadas. You can here the sound here. Morning, noon and night these things buzz.

I’ve noticed that a lot of my neighbors keep their garage doors ajar. They raise it open about a foot. Well, I’m such an airhead… the other day I was complaining to the Soft Soap Man that the garage gets so hot in the afternoon and that no doubt it’s making the air conditioner work harder for the house. The garage is so hot it probably can’t help but heat up the rest of the house! So the Soft Soap Man says “You should crack open your garage for a few hours at night to help cool it down.” Duh!!! I guess that’s why everyone else cracks open their garage! I’m a little worried about critters but obviously they’re getting in no matter what.
