I had a fun weekend with Moon, my mom and Tania-the-Mad hanging in Tennessee. We were in town for another Vintage Fashion Show which is where mom takes vintage clothes I found in Atlanta for $3.00, puts them on models, then I buy them for back from her for $30.00 dollars. It could be worse; I could spend what Tania-the-mad does.
TTM brought some friends with her and they were AWESOME because they helped a lot, and gave me gifts, but mainly that last one. I now have tea towels for my kitchen and an Easter wreath for my door. At Christmas, they gave me a basket of washcloths. See what inviting people to your house will do? I’m sure cleaning supplies and bath towels are next.
I had a good time even though everyone involved decided to flaunt their wares in front of me. And by “wares”, I mean FOOD. Here’s a list of things I got to sit around and watch everyone else eat:
Sonic Chicken Strips, Baked Spaghetti, Chocolate Cake, KFC Fried Chicken, Macaroni & Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, Bacon and Chips.
Luckily, I brought my juicer along and had my usual carrot/apple/pear drink which was just as good I’m sure.
Yes, I have made it almost NINE days eating just raw fruits and veggies, and juice. The good news is that I feel great and my brain has adjusted and now thinks an orange is an appropriate snack. I can eat a half of a banana and feel practically full! The bad news is that I have not lost the appropriate amount of weight which I’m sure we can all agree would be 27 pounds. I ought to lose five pounds just for tolerating tonight’s dinner of mustard greens and mushrooms dipped in stir-fry sauce!
Tomorrow marks the 1/3 point. I can do this. I CAN DO THIS!
Just 20 more days to go.
If I die, bury me with a pizza.
