Followers

Why do you follow a blog?

Are you interested in making friends? Meeting these people in real life?

I’ll tell you. I have made a number of friends on here but have only met one person so far. Once I graduate, I plan on traveling around the world and meeting more people. I want to go around the states to meet some before that. I was supposed to go to Vegas this year and meet a couple of people but being broke stops that! Lol

I just hit 900 followers and I am wondering how many people actually read the posts or just follow to follow. If I follow you, I most likely read your posts and like and/or comment on them.

Eating issues

So this week I have been struggling to stay within my allotted 1500 calories per day. Yesterday I had 1611 because I got these snacks in the mail and REALLY wanted to try one! Today I have already had 1100 calories which leaves me 400 for dinner. Thankfully I have leftover ground beef and shredded cheese and bacon to mix up for dinner with lettuce. I’m so afraid I will still be hungry! That little bit will take all 400 calories so let’s hope it fills me up for the night!

I think it’s because my body is going back into ketosis after having that popcorn last week. I am eating very low carbs right now to get back in ketosis plus I am healing so my body is looking for extra whatever OR maybe it’s because these new snacks have allulose in them and so I’m getting a form of sugar so I crave more sugar? I really don’t know.

Allulose definition from Google:

I washed towels and sheets today with no help from my child. He worked on a school homework assignment and did not do any research on it so when I read the shoddy half page he wrote, I told him it was D quality work so he ripped it up and hasn’t done anything else. This child I swear. 🙄 He has to do well in school this year to get into a good high school and he’s not even trying!

I am also feeling down this afternoon. I was hoping that having clean sheets on my bed would help but it didn’t. I tried reading and finished the 3rd book of the Dexter series but still feel down. I’m not in the mood for Netflix either (there really is something wrong with me, huh?).

Anyway, that’s my update. I’m hungry but can’t eat until dinner at 6pm. I’m not losing weight that I know of (I weigh on Saturday) but when I go over my calories and don’t get any exercise, it makes sense!

I hope all of you are having a good Thursday and will have a great Friday!

Randomness

I watched 2 movies on Netflix late last night.

This was really good and based on a true story. It’s about a girl that started to get brain fuzzy and the doctors just thought she was crazy. Note: she wasn’t! That’s all I will tell you. I like movies based on real life. They are much more realistic!

This is one of those Hallmark movie types that a girl is getting divorced yet stays to help her ex mother-in-law pack up her house in some random town and falls for another guy. Eh. It was cute, don’t get me wrong. Just unbelievable to me.

I also read an entire book yesterday too.

Man this was a great book! A few years old but I’m telling you, Stephen King withstands time when he writes! It’s about a preacher man and his love of electricity and a kid that knows him and keeps running into the preacher throughout his life. I couldn’t put it down!

I watched the movies and went to sleep around 1am. I woke up at 6:30 to my alarm. My son wanted to go to church this morning for the free donuts at 8am. I am SO tired that I came home and I am writing this whilst back in bed.

I got into an argument with my son last night. He wants to have people over to swim on Tuesday. I work that afternoon so I told him he needs to change it to Wednesday. He had his friend ask his Dad to supervise instead! OMG I was pissed! I told him to change the date and stop trying to tell me what he’s going to do instead of asking. It was one of those “I’m the adult and you’re the child” arguments. And then this morning he lies about taking a shower that I told him he needed to take before going to church. I swear I’m going to have to ground him in the next few days if he keeps this up. And he’s only 13?!? Lord help me!

I have plans to cook today. I went to the store and spent $80 on stuff that I can cook and bake with. I hadn’t been able to find xanthan gum anywhere but got some yesterday at Kroger. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a thickening agent for baking.Whole Foods didn’t even have it. Whole Foods DID have macadamia nuts which was good other than the price of $10 for 8 ounces. Highway robbery at that place!

I also got sugar free cherry jello to make meringues. They sound very sweet from the recipe but maybe it will help those cravings around that time of the month. I got a lot of stuff and my mom offered to give me money when I got home but honestly, I may be broke, if I take it from her she will hold it over me later and I don’t want to deal with that. I have to have the ingredients to cook and bake so I will deal. It’s not like I have to buy these ingredients all the time!

Lastly, I am going back to sleep. I hope y’all have a great Sunday!
