Monday Day 479 Food Diary

I’m not even gonna try to hide the fact that today was pretty much a disaster all the way around. Its Monday, which is the day I run most of my errands for the week. Its also the day I have pretty much no food in the house save for meat in the freezer, and boxed pasta and rice mixes. I got up this morning, got dressed, made my shopping list, and walked towards the door, where I discovered my car keys were missing. I had told Mattie until the Subie gets fixed, he can borrow my car whenever, but to please let me know ahead of time so I know and in case I need to use it. Apparently he heard the “you can use my car” part, but not the “please let me know when” part. That put all my plans for the day on hold- putting gas in the car, grocery shopping, buying dog food, and getting my hair cut. When Mattie did get home, I jumped in the car to do my stuff. I topped off my gas tank, got dog food (which thankfully the 10% more free bag was on sale) and went to the beauty school for my hair cut, only to find its closed on Mondays, so no haircut for me today. Then I headed to the grocery store, where I spend 20 f’ing minutes wandering the store asking about ten different people where the damned ziplock bags were. When I finally found them, I got in line to check out, and saw Mattie had texted me multiple times as well as called because he needed a ride home form the collision center. A tow truck was supposed to pick up the Subie to take it in, but after weeks of not starting, it started right up, so he drove it over himself. Instead of waiting ten minutes for me to get done at the store, he decided to walk the almost 2 miles home. I beat him home by about 3 minutes, and was putting the groceries away when he walked in. :wink:

Now why did me not having my car make today a disaster?  I had nothing healthy in the house to eat except for 2 apples and a thing of strawberry yogurt (which I don’t like). No veggies, just the 2 apples (which aren’t even good apples compared to those we get in the produce box). Because there was nothing to eat, and because I had no way to get to the store to buy myself breakfast fixings, I ended up eating 3 slices of the meat extravaganza calling itself pizza in the fridge. I love pizza, but its a trigger food to me, and I think part of the reason for that is I can keep on eating it and I never feel full, not even just satisfied. It just doesn’t happen, and so I keep shoveling its incredible deliciousness into my face until its all gone. Its jut a no-win all the way around, and its better that I try to avoid it completely. :angel:

Later on I ate one of my kind of crappy apples, and then Mattie came home and I went out. By the time we were both home again, it was almost 6pm. I wasn’t starving, and he opted to eat the last three pieces of pizza for dinner. I had some cottage cheese and fruit mixed together, and when he decided he didn’t want all the pizza, I finished his last piece. Needless to say, I am once again way into my weeklies and I’m not happy about that. At this rate, I’m going to be out of weeklies by Wednesday. xD *sigh*

I don’t have a lot else to say. The day was all screwed up and shitty and I’m ready for it to be over. Mattie’s already gone to bed, and I’d be there too if I were actually tired, but I think I’d have to be dying to be asleep at 9pm. Here’s today’s food diary.

For now I’m going to sit on the couch, watch some more Grey’s, and enjoy the fact that I’m not wearing pants. 8) I might also try to find some new jeans, but I’m apparently between sizes so I’m probably not going to find much unless I buy a half size too small and then shrink some.
