Feels like Wednesday, but really it's only Tuesday
Snack time! They sell these smaller bags of chips and say that there are 6 servings in the bag. Really? How many people actually get 6 servings out of a bag like that? I don't usually eat chips and dip as a snack at work, dip is usually saved for special occasions but today I was feeling it. I thought I might be able to eat only a portion of the bag of chips and save some for maybe a snack tomorrow. Not so much. The entire bag of Fritos is gone. I just love them. I don't eat them very often so this bag stood no chance. There's plenty of dip leftover though, so tomorrow I'll make sure to bring in the tortilla chips that I have at home for a snack tomorrow. I'll also make sure to put just ONE serving into a ziplock bag so I don't go nuts like I did today. I got a Sprite Zero to wash it all down because even though it's still chemical filled soda, it has no calories. I feel like one of those people that orders a super sized meal at the drive through and a diet coke. Oh well, I'm over it. I didn't eat much for lunch today. Yesterday I was reading a blog about someone that ate salmon out of a can for lunch and I was like what? Salmon in a can? You mean like tuna? Well I'll be damned. So I had to go to Stop & Shop last night and check it out. Since the tuna is on the bottom shelf and all the other random seafood is on the top shelf, I never noticed that they not only have Salmon in a can but they also have crab meat! Like real crab meat that's gluten free, not the imitation stuff, because I used to love imitation crab once in a blue moon in a seafood salad. I was so pumped to try it today. I opened the can and drained the water out and found something that might have once been crab meat but today? Not so much. I figured I'd give it a shot anyway, mixed it up with some mayo, put it on iceberg lettuce and took a taste. Wow, seriously? SALTY! Yuck. Totally bummed. Luckily I had a baked potato so I ate that instead. And now here I am after 3pm, starving and gorging on Fritos. Lesson learned. I bought some salmon too and I'll try that also but I'm pretty sure the only canned fish I'll be buying on a regular basis is tuna. I love love love tuna. It never gets old.
There is nothing left in my house to eat even though I spent over $60 on food on Sunday night. How the hell does that happen?? Poor planning I guess. I do have frozen chicken and ground beef that I could defrost and do something with. But tonight I work until 10 so that pretty much means I'm gonna have to wing it tomorrow and then tomorrow night I can cook up some stuff for Thursday and Friday.
The good news is, I'm fully back to gluten-free and starting to feel much better. I'm still going every week for blood work and still on 3 medications until October 3rd. I have been feeling very run down which concerns me since this medication can cause blood issues. I'm hoping that The Doc is monitoring my blood work and if there is anything bad going on he'll alert me to it. I just have to keep fueling myself with the right stuff, and by "right stuff" I mean NOT Fritos and dip.
This weekend is the Gluten-Free cooking spree which I was supposed to be volunteering at but I have to bow out. This week is not going the way I had hoped and I just can't be there.
I found out that my friend's mother died. So so so so sad. There are no words. I feel horrible. She had bypass surgery about a month ago and I hadn't heard anything since and now I just found out that she has just recently passed.
