Trying to Eat Healthier

I’m trying to make healthier, smarter choices. Just small ones here and there (as I sit here, nomming on some Pumpkin Pie KitKats ). Each morning, especially before work, I make sure I have myself a shake. I switched to non-lactose containing milks (Fairlife ultra-processed or almondmilk), and I’ve noticed a HUGE change in how my body is digesting! Yay for that win against IBS!

Playing with Tools

Playing with Tools

Originally uploaded by Snap to Scrap

I got a Titan Peeler at Walmart and got to play with it and some cucumbers. It was fun!

Ethan had a lot of fun playing with the “worms”. I made one heck of a nice sandwich using the cucumber instead of lettuce. The last bite was the only “wet” part of the sandwich. I honestly feel nice and full, almost 4 hours after eating the sandwich still.

Last night, I so didn’t get much sleep. Madison got the H1N1 flu shot at school on Friday (signed and okayed by us). Well, she had a regular flu shot in October and spent the next month and a half coughing and sniffling. We thought it was the heater. NOPE! Definitely the flu shot themselves. Poor thing!! She’s been right on the cusp of us having to call her out for school. She was not having a good time with it at all.

So, she was up all night coughing. She “slept” through it, but she was coughing until she gagged. I didn’t sleep because I was scared she’d puke and I’d be completely down for the count. So, I finally konked sometime between 3 and 4 am. No idea what time it was. All I know was that the next time I opened my eyes, Josh was walking around in his boxers to make some coffee this morning, :lol:.

I’m like o.o and Madi’s all O.O, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. How is any of that fair?

I’m hungry!

Man, oh man, that picture makes me hungry!! It’s part of Subway’s FreshFit. This particular one is for the kiddos. My kids LOVE the FreshFit food. I happen to like it, too, though I’m not a huge fan of the yogurt. I prefer baked chips. Also, I get a bottled water instead of a diet soda. The sugar substitutes are prone to give me migraines, XD.

When I was pregnant with Madi, and I was working, I would eat, literally every day, a grilled chicken sub, loaded with lettuce, cheese, mayo (so healthy, :lol:), cucumbers, mustard, pickles, and tomatoes. It was so delicious. I’d always get a foot-long, and have the second-half sitting in the back for me to snack on between customers. It was an extremely healthy thing for me to eat, and it kept me full through-out the whole shift. Not much did that.

Every time I go to Subway, I get either the grilled chicken or a basic club. They always include the same ingredients though: mustard, cheese, pickles, cucumbers, tomatoes and mayo. It’s not really a comfort thing, it’s just what I like. The kidlets get the roast beef kid-sized ones, with lettuce, cheese, and a little bit of mayo. Josh switches around often, so I never know what he’s going to get. He’s the unpredictable one, but I like that about him.

Dang it, now I’m craving a sub, :lol:. Maybe I can convince Kristen to watch my kids, if I run out and get her some too. It’s not that far away. It’s literally a five-minute walk from here. Not that I would walk, of course. Though, that would be the logical solution, though, wouldn’t it?

So, would you prefer your “bodadonk butt” and “cottage cheese thighs”, or would you rather have a yummy and delicious sub, made your way?

Posting this made me so hungry, and made me crave me some Subway, that I had Josh get some for us for dinner. Kids had raisins instead of apples, but we have apples at home, so that worked out. Josh got identical to what I did, except he chose the 3-meat trio, instead of chicken. All the toppings were the same though. They ended up being out of all baked chips, so I ended up with regular Cooler Ranch Doritos. They were still nummy, though 🙂
