Empty today...

Hello Life - I'm still here,

I feel like the last 4 months of my life has been a complete waste. Sitting around holding my breath. The not knowing is the worst. Just NOT knowing what is gonna happen to me. I stopped looking for a job because the new house was gonna be much further out and didn't want to drive so far for minimum wage, which seems to be the only thing I am worth.

The stress has been so bad its a wonder that I only gained 3 lbs over all this. And really that's nothing at all.

Now I really have no idea. I don't know what we're gonna do or where we will live. I feel like everything has been sucked out of my chest. I feel empty today and worried I guess. So that's - that.

Yesterday's breakfast;
 The same muffin I made a few times w/1 tbsp of all 3 flours and cream cheese and natures hollow on top, turkey bacon and a few berries.

Lunch time; I rolled up 3 pcs  of turkey w/ a cheese in the middle and put it in my purse and went to the movies by myself. I was feeling so bad and tried to make the time go by faster. Hubby is working days remember?

I saw this movie called The Awakening. Scary of course about Ghosts. It was so funny cause here I was the ONLY one in the theater and it was about ghosts. And then about 7 other people came in LOL. I guess I was upset about all the house stuff cause I got a large popcorn and mindlessly ate 3/4 of the bag. Oh well that was my lunch anyway.

I snuck into another movie after called the Campaign. It was funny.

I got home and the dogs had been outside for like 4 hours and were making faces like they had been running a marathon the whole time I was gone. They are so spoiled and used to me being home all the time.

For dinner I just had a spinach salad.

And afterwards for desert I had 2 protein bites and rediwhip. Yup Still addicted to them.

My breakfast this morning was 2 Oasis toast w/butter and my 2 nut butters I made on top. 1 with the chocolate-hazelnut and 1 with almond, 2 eggs, 1/2 avocado and a few berries.

I love that I finally figured out ow easy and cheap it is to make my own nut butters - thanks again DAWN :-)

Right now I am on my way to take Mandy and peaches for a haircut.
Before photos;
Peaches: They sleep all night and then go right back to sleep again.
Mandy: she was hiding behind the couch.

I'm gonna just put R.S in the sink for a bath - she doesn't know it yet, but I'm betting she won't like it.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

No thought for the day - I am thought-LESS.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. aw...I know just how you feel honey, you hang in there and know that once everything is resolved you will look back and say, 'man that was a bad time', but you will revel in the fact that you made it through! I am pulling for ya! Maybe you could take a class or something like that, just to give you something to do to make you feel better about yourself? I was very down about life and starting my crafting is what helped turn me around. It's a thought. Hang in there!

  2. Hang in there, Girl. Things will come together for you.

  3. Aw Rosalie, Hang in there! Things will get better!

  4. Pretty soon this will all seem like a bad nightmare in the past! I am amazed you don't eat things you shouldn't in all this stress cause I sure do! I love reading your blog!

  5. well, I'm pretty sure your'e not THOUGHTLESS, lol, but I know exactly what you mean. ;) I love that the nut butters are so easy. Take care, and talk to ya soon, I gotta get off to bed. O

  6. How frustrating!!! You know you are worth more than minimum wage. Big Hugs :)

  7. Stress sucks - I hope for your sake this is over soon. Hang in there. You are NOT what you do (or get paid) - that is NOT your value :)

  8. Oh Rosalie, I am sorry that things are so up in the air. I hope it all works out. You give so many of us hope in how you get through your stress. You always have a positive message, so if once in awhile you need to say how you really feel, I think that makes you real. What's ever on your heart is what I want to read:)

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.
