If there was ever a time to 'fake' it ... it's now.
So many things are teetering, and I feel like our life is like a pack of cards.
I know that any time in the next few weeks Stew's job situation will be resolved, one way or another.
It's scary. And it's always a constant in my mind. 7.5 months of uncertainty. It would do in anyone's head.
I really don't feel confident about my healthy eating resolve. Yesterday I did not have lunch, purely because I could not think of a single 'healthy' thing I wanted to eat!
So, I had nothing.
Dinner was beef rissoles, potatoes and peas/gravy. It wasn't the most healthy dinner by any means, but it filled a gap.
A gap that has been filled for the past few months with cookies/lollies and crap like chips and dip.
Today for lunch? I really have NO IDEA. Everything I used to do for healthy options makes me just go 'blah'. If you eat the same stuff day in day out, after a while you don't want to ever eat it again.
So, there goes salads, stir fry's, sushi and just about all the 'healthy' food I used to eat.
I just don't feel EXCITED about anything right now, I think of food and just draw a miserable blank.
The suggestion of getting a cook book or two for diabetics is probably a good idea.
But first, I will check and see if I don't already have something like that among my cookbooks.
I have quite a few cookbooks, which I've not looked at in YEARS!
ABOVE: She is much more active now, though I have noticed she gets breathless fast. Maybe she should be taking it easy? Try telling that to a DOG!
ABOVE: I was trying to get a nice photo of Steve, Bex and the dogs. Bex covered her face, and Teddy laughed at me! Well, it looks like he's laughing at me. So funny.
ABOVE: My new Tupperware, I've already got one of the blue containers in use. (the little green pot was a gift from the Dealer)
The rolling pin is supposed to have cookie cutters on the ends, but they got 'lost' en route, so Bex will probably bring them home after Playcentre on Monday.
I love how big that rolling pin is! You can put ice in it to help keep the pastry from getting too soft.
Now that I'm trying to eat better, something tells me that home made pies will be a rare event.
Right, time to start the day.
I'm going to hunt for good recipes, MAGPIE: thanks for the links and ideas.
If anyone has some bright ideas for GOOD desserts for diabetics, let me know.
Both Stew and I have (STRANGELY) developed a sweet tooth.
How unfair is that! I used to have a total savoury tooth. Pies, pies, pies! Now? Cake, cake, cake.
LYNDA: thanks for all the links and suggestions, the 'bombardment' was funny actually!
MAGPIE: if you have any good recipes just email them to me... and Thanks for the concern.
I went back to bed this morning, after getting up to blog and have a piddle... and I slept till almost 11 am!
I am STILL feeling overwhelmingly tired. I'm starting to wonder WHY? I have never felt like this before.... like I could sleep ALL DAY.
Stew wants us to go out this afternoon for a walk, either down by the waterfront (Mission Bay area) or out to Maraetia Beach. Right now I just want to go back to bed, and I've only been up for 15 minutes!
I must take Coco to the Vets soon.... so I can't go back to bed luckily.
Home from the Vets. Fiona, the vet, is very pleased with how well Coco is recovering. We now just have to keep an eye on her and take her back in a week for stitches removal.
I told the Vet that I had been taking a photo each day of Coco's tummy, to make sure no changes go unnoticed.
Seriously, she clapped her hands to her face and laughed at me!
Apparently I'm the only person she knows who would think of doing that. *smiles* It seemed sensible to me!
ABOVE: I found me cookbooks, and found a few with 'healthy' recipes by the look of it.
I will browse through them later.
For now... it's lunchtime and I think I will have some veges and gravy. Not that I actually feel like anything to be honest.
Steve is cooking dinner tonight, he's making home made sausage rolls and coleslaw.
Stew, Brylee, Griffin and I just went for a little walk around the Botanic Gardens. It's so nice having them just down the road from us.
Perfect weather for a walk too... just a little crisp and cloudy.
LOL! MAGPIE: 'bombardment' is when (in this case) you send someone several comments/emails in the space of a short time.
Lynda sent me several comments and emails pertaining to my struggle with food and how she could recommend certain foods, recipes etc.
I'm SO glad Stew encouraged me to go for that walk. I'm feeling so much better for it. All day today I've just felt like death warmed up, and tired.
Now I feel like I'm ready to start the day! It's almost 6 pm. Oh well... better late than never.
End of Day: Steve's sausage rolls were lovely! Well... the meat ones were. He made a few vegetable ones too, but they were ikkk. Him and Bex liked them... so they got to eat mine.
All in all... a funny sorta day.
