This is my Nineveh!
And then he turned to me and said....
It's been a good "Monday" so far. We skipped our normal stop so I was without my salad or bananas today. This made me really sad, but I'm going pretty good. I had one cup of decaffeinated coffee so I got my coffee taste without caffeine.. not a good taste. Tomorrow is no coffee at all. Kinda twitchy over that no caffeine but the headache is still not there. /cheer
I'm so excited and thankful. There has been a lot of news that is great coming my way... Somelikeitraw's pictures of her transformation after going raw made me cry happy tears. I remember days feeling and looking like I had given up on myself before my first battle with my weight and going raw the first time around.
And my best girlfriend finally got her citizenship. She moved locally to work for the company I work for and it took a lot of time, but she's finally able to become a citizen and even apply for a passport and do things that a lot of us take for granted.. like get married and buy her own home.
I'm so excited for my best girl and for Somelikeitraw that I can tell you it's helping me to continue toward my completely raw transition.
Things have been going great at home too. My dear boyfriend turned to me and said two things in the last 24 hours that surprised me. The first was the best! If I want to train for a triathlon or adventure running he wants to do it with me. I guess this means cutting out a lot of extra crap from our budget in order to arrange a trainer. This made me so excited I can't begin to tell you!
Unfortunately, the second was not so good... we were on the way to work having not made our normal stops.
Shrinking clothes for my DB had been a pet peeve of mine. Our clothes, shirts and such are laundered by hand by myself in luke warmish water before going through just a rinse cycle in the washer.. saves us about 6$ on our power bill each month and a lot on water because it's a single bathtub full to scrub em down good. Heavier garments such as jeans, sweatshirts and jackets are a different story. They get laundered cold and tumble dried so that there isn't consumption of gas for the heating. So his clothes are not shrinking.. he's growing...rounder. =/
I digress and return to telling of this mornings events. We didn't make our normal stops (no fruit or salad for me for breakfast.. so I skipped and just drank my decaf and lots of water) and when I was nodding off he said "Oh Great! Now my coat is shrinking too!"
He was upset and turned to me and said "I thought I told you no hot water or hot dryer!"
I laughed and didn't reply.
The coat is brand new-ish, a gift from his mother for Christmas that is dry clean only and has not been through our washing regimen yet.
How to delicately explain to him he's gaining weight? Well, I decided not to. He'll be eating closer to my planned meals as he won't cook for himself.. (/sigh) and will only eat what I cook or prepare for him and if he exercises with me as well, the point will be moot.
It just struck me odd and struck me funny. I've been giggling about it on and off all morning.
I also remind myself that my jeans aren't as comphy as they used to be and we don't need a pot calling the kettle black.
Today's transitioning lunch consisted of a whole wheat veggie wrap. Lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cucumbers on a 12 inch whole wheat tortilla that didn't quite so much roll up. It was more a salad contained in a messy shell.
I didn't eat the whole tortilla.
Getting closer and closer to that 100%.
Over my weekend I also tried Zumba.. there's some great videos on Youtube..but my feet aren't as light or co-ordinated as they used to be. I did try out the intro bellydancing for health which was much easier for me. . . my feet will move faster soon!
I hope everyone has an amazing day!
