Wednesday Day 564 Food Diary

I still feel pretty crappy today, but you’ll get a real post and not just my food diary. I’m tired, my head feels like its packed full of cotton batting, and my nose won’t stop running. The last thing I wanted to do today is anything at all, but I still managed to do a load of laundry, vacuum the house, make dinner, and make tea for Mattie. I also did my measurements and weight for this month, and I have a 4.2 pound loss for last month, and 2.5″ added up from here and there. I was really hoping to lose 5 pounds, but the last week was just bad. The scale was all over the place, despite eating decently.

I also finally talked to the woman in charge of our delivery route for AHO, and found out what happened and why we didn’t get our delivery. Basically, she took one half of this area, and the new guy they just hired took the other half- my half. It was still fuzzy what had happened this morning, but this afternoon she called me back and was able to explain everything. Apparently the new kid delivered our box to my mom’s house (my billing address) 30 minutes outside of town, so my mom got a box of veggies, and my raisins, all tucked neatly away in the ice chest outside her back door. When she called him to ask what happened, he asked her why they were delivering to a house so far out there, and that it took an hour to make that one delivery. That pretty much explained everything. I asked my mom to bring me my raisins tomorrow and she can keep whatever else. Part of me is laughing about this and part of me is wondering how the kid managed to not notice not going out there last week on his ride along. Doh! I do feel bad they are having to eat the cost, but it was a mistake on their part, not mine.

There are up and down sides to having to go to the store to purchase fruits and veggies for this week. The upside is I could literally pick anything I wanted for us to eat. The downsides are that none of it is organic or supporting local farmers, and I had to actually think about what and how much to buy. I ended up coming home with some good stuff though. Two heads of broccoli, a big bag of baby carrots (I know, whole carrots are much cheaper), fresh green beans, apples, lettuce, tomatoes, a cucumber, two zucchinis. We haven’t had zucchini or fresh green beans in months, and I am looking forward to them.

I got paid this morning for that design job I just did, and should have the money out of PayPal and into my account in the next few days. Then, unfortunately, its going to disappear pretty quickly as I need to order more toothpaste and mouthwash, both of which are pricy because we use fluoride free versions of both, which means not as many people carry them, or buy them. Three bottles of mouthwash and 6 tubes of toothpaste will set me back about $50! :blink:  Holy crap! That’s kind of crazy. I’m also hoping to save enough of it to have a nice day for Mattie for his birthday. At the least I want to take him out to a nice dinner, but I’d like to do more than that if I can. We’ll see what happens.

I spent some time in my craft room working on some new things, and I did some laundry, vacuuming, and made sun tea for Mattie. Besides that, I’ve got nothing else for today. Here’s the food diary. :)
