the feast, day two...


So I had warmed and buttered Irish Soda Bread for breakfast along with some bites of cherry pie, with coffee of course.

For lunch I made some fresh french fries in my fryer. That Alexia Yukon Gold Fries with Sea Salt are incredible every time, and every single fry is perfect. Fries are my weakness for the record. Anyhow I then used THIS site to make the most awesome Reuben sandwiches ever. They really did turn out restaurant style. We also had really great dill pickles and some awesome coleslaw I picked up at the market. The sauerkraut and the pickles were Bubbies brand I got at Whole Foods and were amazing. My roomie grew up in New York in Hell's Kitchen and swears the pickles were just like she used to get on 13th Ave. for what it's worth.

After lunch and a long break I had some cherry pie ala mode and now I am over stuffed and aching.

I DID mow the front yard which made me feel a little bit better. I even got some sun on me. I took a shower after and felt the pinkness when I got out.

I am planning on starting back to the treadmill and better, smaller portioned eating in the next week. I have a Spring Equinox (not Christian so it isn't really an Easter thing) dinner planned of Ham and mashed potatoes with fresh veggies but that will be my last indulgence for a while. I am just too sick of my weight right now. Sometimes I think I am slowly suffocating myself in my own fat. I know that is sick sounding but it is how I feel sometimes.

Anyhow I am definitely in better spirits this week. The making an effort to get out and get sun and get a bit more active does help. I also got over 5 hours sleep last night which helps a ton.

I got some beautiful daffodils for free from my local market yesterday They were a thank you for being a great customer gift. They were closed even. Today they are open and just amazing so I thought I would post a pic. They just scream sunshine and Spring.

7 om's.:

ROFL... mowing the lawn? We still have snow here... and eastern Canada has TONNES. Are you sure you want to move here?

I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I WANT the snow, I miss the snow. I NEED 4 SEASONS!!!!!!

I lived in Chicago and Colorado before so I am not too worried.

I am not too keen that I needed to mow already when I just did a week ago.

mowing the lawn and getting some sun? SOOOOOO cannot relate to that but wish I did! lol! AND let me tell you I thought those flowers were just a clip art sort of picture because of how perfect they were....then I read that you got them from your local market? They are GORGEOUS! Those alone should have made your week :) I am thrilled to hear youare in better spirits....see what a good juicy Reuben sammich does for you?
