Goodies Galore

Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Please excuse my absence

Hey blogettes, I apologize for the serious lack of posts and time put into the blogging community. I’m going through some personal stuff and had to put this on the back burner. I cant really get into it but as things get sorted out, I’ll be back in action. Let’s play a little catch up. As mentioned before, my appetite has lacked lately so my eats are totally random and at crazy hours. Yesterday I packed a huge bag of food because nothing looked good at the moment so I wanted choices.

I planned yogurt (stoneyfield on sale at shaws) and cereal (Fiber One Caramel Delights on sale at shaws) for breakfast but never ended up eating it. I may have it this morning. I also packed an apple, hummus, carrots, snap peas,and two slices of Ezekiel bread. The only thing I ate from all of this was bread and hummus. Yeah, I’m an inmate.

When snack came around for the kiddies I ate macaroni and cheese crackers. I didn’t feel that guilty because the bag only has 140 calories but it has an EXTENSIVE ingredients list. Pretty scary actually. I also had three tootsie rolls.

I came home from work to find something special sitting on my doorstep. Jess sent Eleanor and I a package from Oscar and herself. This is the second package she has sent me and I haven’t gotten my act together to send her anything. I’m an evil hooker. Thank you Jess, you are amazingly thoughtful. The package include a Puff Vest for Ellie, four delicious specialty dog bones (that I had to stop myself from eating they looked THAT good, and a bulldog key chain for mama. Really Jess, thank you.

Sorry about the sideways picture. But LOOK at those cookies!

Puffer Vest

key chain

Dinner came around and I finally Β felt truly hungry so we had whole wheat couscous, tofu and stir fried vegetables. I bought a new honeyΒ marinade–to die for. I ate most of what I plated- hello, fat ass. During American Idol, I ate a bowl of vanilla and chocolate mint Arctic Zero. It feels so liberating to eat guilt free ice cream.

Lunch is leftovers from din-din.

Thanks for understanding my absence and I hope to be back in action soon!

  4. Hey Chica! What is going on with you? Sometimes “life” gets in the way. I know you can handle what has been happening in you life and be able to figure it out. The vest is fierce you have to take a pic of Ell’s with it on. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP GIRL!

  8. Girl, you make me so sad with your mean talk about yourself. That plate of couscous, veggies and tofu looks very reasonable to eat all of, especially with you barely eating all day! I’m sure it doesn’t help with whatever is going on, but I just want you to know that I definitely don’t think you are anywhere near a fat ass. Praying for you, okay?

  17. You always make tofu look so good! Keep your head up! And don’t at all worry about taking a break from Goodies Galore, we miss you, but totally understand! πŸ™‚

  18. I’m going through a similar bout, so I totally understand. As fun as this is it isn’t as important as “real life”!! That puffer vest for Ellie looks friggin’ amazing, by the way. Lily is super jealous and if you find out where that was purchased I promise I won’t buy it in purple πŸ˜‰ She’s a pink lady anyhow.

  19. Okay, first of all, agree with all the above. And although we all want to lose some poundage… you are by FAR NOT fat – in the least. πŸ™‚ Crazy! Sometimes I feel like I am stealing when I read and don’t comment so here you go! Also, I am going to TRY to cook this tofu I have sitting in my fridge. I don’t know how. I only tried one time before so wish me luck!! πŸ™‚ And I am starving!

    Hope you have a good night and things look up for you!

  21. Wow, I would have wanted to eat those dog treat cookies too- how dare they make them look so delicious! I hope you’re doing okay- take all the time you need.
