Rushing the Seasons
Happy October 1st! Hope you all had a great start to the month. I still can’t believe we’re in the 10th month already.
Tonight I went to Lowe’s with my dad and Andrew to pick some stuff up. As soon as we walked in this is what we were greeted with:
That’s right Christmas Decorations, 3 rows worth! How about they give us a chance to celebrate Halloween. I really love Christmas a lot, the day after Thanksgiving I start decorating, listening to Christmas music, and watching Christmas movies (Elf, anyone?), so it’s not that I”m a grinch or anything, but really it’s just too soon!
Other then the Christmas explosion I witnessed tonight, today was a good day. I’m thrilled tomorrow is Friday and will be eagerly watching the clock for 5. We have a pretty calm weekend, just a 50th birthday party Saturday night, other then that it should be relaxing.
Breakfast this morning was juice again. I got a question if this is all I’m having for breakfast, the answer is yes. I know it doesn’t seem like much but it really does keep me satisified until lunch time. If I was hungry I would honor it, and go for something extra. I’m not saying I’ll only be having juice for breakfast forever, but I feel good so far and don’t see a reason to add anything else.
My juice was the normal, head of romaine, carrot, inch of ginger, lemon, and 2 apples. I totally forgot to add the spinach, it taste much different but the color was more orange from the carrot then green.
I have a feeling I’m going to turn orange from all these carrots.
Lunchtime was another salad. It was simpler then yesterday no avocado, carrots, or celery, I brought a green pepper to throw in but decided to eat that for a snack I really didn’t want it in the salad.
Around 3 I hate the green pepper.
For dinner Andrew and I went to the Whole Foods Salad Bar. I got a huuuuge salad and a container of quinoa.
Romaine, red cabbage, cucumbers, carrots, red onions, and I think a million other things I can’t remember.
Andrew got everything I love and avoiding this week for my “mini cleanse”
Chicken parm, meatballs, sausage peppers and onions, baked ziti, and lemon rice! It smelled amazing, it took a lot for me not to grab that chicken parm right out of his container!
NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer awareness is very important to me, both my grandmother’s were diagnosed with it years ago, one of them unfortunately did not survive the battle. My other grandmother, luckily, is still going strong. I’ve decided that I’m going to help spread awareness by doing different informative posts a few times a week for the month of October. I’m working on the first post now, so I hope to be posting it by Saturday.
Well I’m going to get into bed, g’nite bloggies!
