Life of On...

Hello Friends,

Look what I got today...

Yesterday was a long day. But breakfast first of course.

Lisa, Maria and I went to the Fair. We got there about 12:30. We were a bit hungry so first stop was corn on the cob. Then we went to visit the animals. It was fun. Lisa took some pictures and hopefully she will upload them soon. There was this small cow that looked so much like my dog Peaches I want to show you.

We each ate one of my shortbread cookies and looked in the shopping buildings. Yeah I spent too much money. I got 2 sets of new sheets, 2 hair clips, 1 earrings, a whisk thingy that you push down and it spins, and new mop that spins and comes with a bucket.
looks like this
I ate half a turkey leg and some of Maria's veggies. She got this plate with veggies and chicken and it was huge. I had a baggie with me and put the rest of the turkey meat in it in my small cooler I brought for some bottles of water.

As we walked around I ate a bite of caramel corn, a nut sample and later a bite of Lisa's funnel cake. I never tasted that before. That's all I ate all day and felt like I ate like a pig. By the time I got home it was after 8pm and no more food for me.

It seems like everyone has some sort of advice for me. Maria says for me to see a shrink, Hubby's mom says for me to go get a job, lots of others say to go get some sleeping aids or anti-depressants from the doctor. It's only been a little over 2 weeks and I feel I get some grieving time to be sad if I want. You all know how strong I am and I promise I will not let it go too far. Life goes on no matter how I feel.

My breakfast this morning, 2 oasis toast with the almond butter I made, berries and the left over turkey - which you know I gave some of the turkey to the dogs.

I tried to make myself busy, doing laundry, then vacuumed, then took out the new mop and of course while putting the handle together - cut my had pretty bad cause of my ET's. Stupid me!!

Then I got a phone call from Judy of all people. She asked me how I was and I just kind of went off on her and wound up kind of yelling at her about - well - just everything. The funeral, the past 2 weeks and then the past. I had been blaming her and my EX for all that crap that happened over 22 years ago and but It turns out that she says none of that stuff was her idea at all and she had no idea about all the stuff my EX put me thru. She apologized for her immature part in all of it - but had no idea why or what I had been thru. She said I should have told her, but I felt so alone and trapped and told her I couldn't tell anyone at all. Well I guess I believe her. Maybe this will help in my healing process.

I finally mopped the house - OK not as much fun as the guy described when Lisa and I bought one. LOL

I just didn't feel like eating at all, but around 3 I fixed a zuchinni crust pizza with a little alfredo sauce and turkey pepperoni.
There were 3 of the shortbread cookies left so I made a bit of icing to put on top of them with cream cheese w/a little vanilla and stevia drops.
Yeah I at all 3. But I probably won't eat any dinner.

Well thanks for listening and lots of love to you all.

My thought for the day:
life goes on


  1. Very well written!! So many people resort to dieting pills, but if they would just exercise and eat a little healthier they will see a dramatic change. It’s what helped me to lose hip fat.

  2. Isn't interesting how people are directing you do this and that take this and that...when you are just try to feel you way through the process. Good for you! It takes time and we need to feel what we feel. Society we are taught to put on a brave face, take a pill, etc. I think it's to make everyone else feel better :-) I am so glad you are taking the long road, "the healing road"...the last thing you or anyone needs is to stuff our feeling down and not go through them... it takes what it takes no more no less...Hugs to you Rosalie.

  3. It's ok to mourn. We need to mourn with those who are mourning! It's your pain you have to work your way through, no one else's. My heart is mourning with you! Take the time to grieve. Try to ignore what others say that does not witness to your heart. I pray for peace in your mind and heart Rosalie.

  4. Lovely flowers! Happy to hear you had fun at the fair and picked up some interesting goodies too! I agree with Sandra and Francie that this is your time and process of grieving and no one can tell you how it should be. Take care of yourself and know that you are loved <3

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.
