PB & Furniture

I don’t know where yesterday went. I was exhausted and went to bed by 9pm!

Today I slept in and packed a crap lunch.  The only picture I have is my toasted pita and PB that I ate for breakfast at work…



Lunch was a flatout wrap with 2 slices of tomato, old cheddar and lettuce. It was really good! I also ate a half a Larabar and some almonds.  Dinner was cheese. Yes… cheese. It’s literally all I wanted.  Bizarre.  I have channa made up for tomorrow and my plan tonight is to cook up some brown rice to keep on hand for the next few days.  I’m still managing to eat up stuff without grocery shopping!

Tonight was spent doing more furniture shopping.  I thought to take a picture of our bedroom set!  We ended up going back to the same place to get our dining room table… so, here’s some photos of our bedroom set and our dining room table (although the chairs we ordered are not the same)

That is our exact bed set… king size and same mattress and all!  I fell in love with the mattress when I laid on it in the store. I can’t wait to have awesome nights of sleep in it!

And the dining room… (this is the table without the leaf… the leaf is hidden under the table until we want to use it).


That’s all for today.  We have all of our furniture purchased!  Next is to figure out our duvet cover. I can’t find anything I love!

Tomorrow is my weigh in. I don’t have high hopes. The gym has been non-existent right now (but that will change next week).  I have had a crazy appetite this week with sweet and greasy cravings. I’m not giving in to them… but I feel like I have eaten more overall.  We’ll see what tomorrow holds!!

Happy Thursday!!

Happy Labour Day

Well, well… welcome fall!

First things first. I was UP 0.9lbs this week.  Oops.  Appetite is back!  At least it wasn’t even a full pound I was up.

Life has been somewhat busy lately.  Since buying a house (and passing the home inspection with flying colours, by the way!)… we have begun the task of getting life organized for the big “merge” (as I like to call it).  From the home inspection, to figuring out if/what movers to use, to buying all new furniture ($$!!) to giving notice at my building (and finding out they will be showing my place at any given time for the next 2 months), to PACKING.  It’s busy.


I don’t like living in chaos… but I feel better about the big move (on October 28, 29 or 30th – undecided) knowing I’m doing a little bit at a time.   I have so much alcohol that I’m throwing out… it’s really old and gross.


I managed to remember to take photos of my dinner!  I’m trying to eat things up in the kitchen now… because it will take a while.  Once I accomplish the goal, I will just buy enough food (frozen dinners?) to get by.

Breakfast was toast with macadamia nut butter.  Lunch was popcorn (while watching a marathon of “For Rent” on TV), dinner was some Annie’s with some tuna, edamame and cottage cheese (if you haven’t tried adding cottage cheese to Annie’s – you really should!), then added some shredded light cheddar on top




It feels like a fall night when I can once again burn candles (without dying of added heat in the room).  I’m also burning up any/all candles around this place… less things to move, right?  Then I can head to Bath & Body Works to buy new stock for the house!


This week is shaping up to be a little less busy and more evenings at home while I make calls to organize phone/satellite/internet/movers… and pack a bit more (and throw CRAP out!).

Happy fall to everyone… and happy back to school/work for those of you who had the summer off!

(Have I mentioned I have already started my meal planning for when I have to start regularly cooking for 2 instead of 1?  I like to feel prepared and organized…)
