Feeling Crappy...

Hello Friends,

How is your day going so far?? I'd love to hear some nice stories from all you happy people. Being happy has always seemed like a fairy tale to me. All my life it seems like everything has always been so miserably hard. I could literally write a book about what I have been through in my life, not pretty.  And I am not in any way saying this to get you to feel sorry for me - please don't, I just want you to know that I am just a regular person. I have been feeling so crappy lately. I really can't and shouldn't explain it on here anyway. Because of the way I have been feeling my weight is up to 153, that's 5 lbs over the past couple days. I am telling you this to let you know that what we go thru does effect our weight.

I was watching Anderson Cooper the other day, which I have never done before and he had people on his show that have lost their job due to social media in different ways. Did anyone else see that? It is important to watch what we say on our blogs and on Facebook or Twitter. I don't feel that I ever say anything that I will regret later. I am an honest person and do try to take other people's feeling into account. Well I hope I do anyway.

I want so much to just go BLAH and say what I feel - but I can't. Its my life and this is what I get I guess for something or another that I did in a past life and I wish I knew what that was so I could make amends and feel free. Can you tell I just feel like crying right now?

Here's what I ate yesterday:
breakfast; was a flaxseed muffin and berries
lunch was 2 oasis bread w/tuna, mayo, avocado, jalapenos and some shredded cheese.  And 2 squares of 86% dark chocolate after. 
No snack.
dinner was some shirataki noodles, broccoli and turkey sausage crumbles w/some butter and garlic. RediWhip in a bowl for desert.
breakfast this morning was Oasis toast, and some blueberries to put on top, avocado and 2  poached eggs in my microwave egg thingy.
Well that's it for me. I want to thank you for listening. I would like to hear some comments of good things that you have been doing to cheer me up please. Nothing Poo-Poo about me.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

My thought for the day:


paramedicsNever do anything that you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics. 

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling badly. If people are making you feel this way, you should cut them out of your life. Life is too short to be unhappy all of the time.

    Let's see, IDK if this will cheer you up, but we all woke up late here (8 am - everyone in the house - that is crazy considering I have small children and they all have gotten up between 5 and 7 consistently their whole lives) and today was a day where we had to drop off the van for maintenance an hour later. This means the whole family needs to be dressed, fed, showered, whatever in like 45 minutes. As I'm contemplating this and making up my hubby's lunch to take with him, he comes out and asks us if we'd all like to go out for breakfast after we drop off the van. So we all just got back from breakfast out on a Sunny Friday morning. Pretty nice morning! ;) It went from a potential stressful morning to an enjoyable morning out. Have a good day!

  2. I wish I could give you a hug! Today on the Pioneer Woman blog she had a question from a reader that said that she had so many bad things happen lately and what could she do? This was her answer:
    Dear Drowning:
    I’m so sorry. When things like this converge, it may seem like it’s just going to keep going. Please forgive me for throwing out a movie reference, but I actually told someone close to me this same thing recently. In Four Weddings and a Funeral, Andie MacDowell goes to see Hugh Grant. She’s been walking in a huge thunderstorm and is completely soaked. When Hugh answers the door, he insists that she come inside and she says something to the effect of “It’s okay—at a certain point, you can’t get any wetter.” Does that make sense?
    I’m so sorry about your sister-in-law, your grandmother…everything.
    It made sense to me? But I hope it helps a little.
    I'm a little down today too? I wonder why? I stress over not being grateful enough? Ugh!!!
    I will think of you and hope it gets better. You have a lot of people that think you are "super duper"!!!

  3. I hope you feel better soon Rosalie! I am sorry you're not feeling so feel lately, Hugs to you!

  4. I've had some pretty crappy things happen too Rosalie (things people just shouldn't have to deal with). I have often thought, I'm not sure what keeps us going but we do. I try to be grateful for what is great and I try my best to make sure my kids grow up with the happy "ideal" childhood (if that's possible). I didn't have an ideal childhood and it's one of my biggest wishes for them.

    On a happy note; I spent the better part of today at my local organic farm picking strawberries. I'll post about it later. Just finished my strawberry/vanilla protein shake with fresh picked berries ... nothing compares to that :) I also had a VERY productive week and can't wait to post about that too.

    I sure hope you're feeling better. I'm one of those people who think you are "super duper"!

  5. I don't have any happy stories to share as I have been in a crappy mood too. Sometimes life just feels so overwhelming.


  6. Rosalie, I'm with Dawn and feel like if people make you unhappy you should either cut them out or associate with them as little as possible. When I'm in a bad mood I like to rant and rave about it and get it all out of my system and then I feel much better! OK something good....the weather has been really nice here for two days. The sun is out and the temperature is in the high seventies/low eighties. I spent the morning taking Mabel the puppy out in our backyard. There is a farm behind our backyard and usually they grow hay but this year they are growing soybeans. Beyond the farm is some woods. Sometimes it's a challenge to get Mabel to stay in the boundaries and not go on the farm or into the woods. I'm trying to not have to tie her out. While I was out with her, I got my tomatoes staked up and saw that there is one yellow squash ready for picking. Do you put in a garden in that beautiful California weather of yours? It's something peaceful to do that gives me a bit of satisfaction when I actually produce some vegetables. Hope tomorrow is better for you!

  7. Yesterday a lady that does not even know me took time to help me with something that is important to me. Pure kindness.
    today my mom took me to trader joes to stock up on healthy stuff. She paid also ;)
    I have alot to pay forward I also got some pretty sunflowers.

  8. Rosalie I'm sorry that things are difficult. You are a warrior and often that is taken for granted. Today I had a coupon for $3 off a particular brand of clothing at Target and didn't use it. I saw that the woman in front of me had some clothes so I tore the coupon off the page and gave it to her. She was genuinely surprised and thanked me several times saying, "every little bit helps". I go through crappy moody spells and I hope that my random acts of kindness and plain ol acts of civility and politeness might inspire the universe/karma to help out on those crappy moody days. I leave tomorrow morning to go to the outer banks of nc to spend a few precious hours with my family for father's day weekend-then off to the in-laws for my last week of school. Hope the karmic wheel shifts and brings you good fortune.

  9. Well, I don't believe in past life stuff, but I do believe people put up with stuff in their life that they don't have to/shouldn't because, for some reason, they think they have to (???) or because they're afraid to do something about it because it will inivitably mean things might change (rarely do they consider that beyond the fear the change will actually be good and ultimately make them happy). You know about my crappy childhood, so I say make changes that you can make so that happiness can come into your life in those areas of your life. Sometimes people in our lives step on our feet. We can remain immobile and be mad at them for continuously stepping on our feet or we can move our feet and be on our way. You don't want pity, so I won't give it to you. But, I will give you a hug and tell you to do what you need to do to not allow people to bully you in your life and steal your happiness. You always tell us not to let food bullies make us eat things we don't want to eat; this logic applies to all areas of life. You are super duper, Rosalie, and I hope you know that. We love you.

  10. Sorry, I forgot to tell you my happy story. :) Life IS great! Hubby has been gone this week for training and he is getting back tonight. I've missed him so much! Also, the other morning, after almost losing all of the meat in my freezer (but thankfully didn't) because the door was left slightly open, I started my day in complete stress and tears. My sweet, amazing, and thoughtful daughter brought me home a bouquet of flowers on her way home from work to help bring brightness into an otherwise stress filled day.

  11. ROSALIE, I SEE THE LINKS ON THE RIGHT OF YOUR PAGE. Among them is a website called "nutrition.com" Is that where you order your bfc foods from? I just want to know if its a safe website to purchase my things. :)

  12. Rosalie...I am sending you Hugs just wanted you to know that..unfortunately no great wisdom I don't know why anything.. but we have some awesome supports I see in the comments :)

  13. Rosalie, I am probably not the one to give you a happy pep talk. You know that can be BS anyway. I just want to tell you that when I am feeling down,( which seems to be alot lately), I concentrate on those that have it even worse ( my brother, niece and nephew come to mind). I just try to realize that I am strong and I can handle anything that comes my way. I'm not going to lie and say that I don't comfort myself with food sometimes. I'm not perfect in that area, but I do try...really hard, not to do that. All I can say is that everyone has something that is causing them pain, even if they don't tell you about it. Having people there for you that you can talk to helps, and we are all there for you and each other. I really rely on my circle of blog friends for a little pick me up. I hope that in some small way I have picked you up a little my friend. You are a great friend and a great support to so many of us. Maybe that can make you feel just alittle bit better about your life, and maybe your purpose at this time. Biggest hugs and love to you from me! XO

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
