My boyfriend got us a TON of stuff, and even though he got more than I thought he would (read: everything on the list except the parmesan for the heroin chicken: FAIL). We got some staples of the tomato-based variety, plus apple cider vinegar & things like that. We're good on spices for a while, I think, and he also got REALLY good deals on some meat! Pork chops, chicken breasts, ground beef & drumsticks! Hooray! Then I got us some more stuff for the apartment and kept us under budget.
I'm picking up a few more things today, of the non-food variety (like a loufa, boyfriend does not like bathing with hands).
-My sex drive has been up lately, I feel more responsive and "interested", but there are still some mental road-blocks to work through. I'm trying not to get too optimistic about it since it's just generally been an exciting and positive week so I have NO idea if this will last. Boyfriend & I need to have a talk though, it's a bit too much for me right now and I'm not comfortable saying no even when I enjoy it.
-MUST STOP EATING GRAINS. So much gas. Of course, I'm mystified because I STILL like how my body looks! What's with this positivity, nameless? Where the hell is it coming from and how do I stop it from going away???
-Dry-mouth has been better since I increased carbs. It really didn't take much. Dry-lips are pretty annoying but I think it's related to the grains I've been nomming on lately. $5 pizza is hard to turn down.
-15lb kettlebell arrived! I've just been doing some basic swings to stretch out a bit because a) it's lighter than I expected b) my legs really need the stretch that squatting provides c) I want to get the form down before I really start to push it. My knees get pushed apart when I try to do that swing that goes between your legs, and that doesn't seem right. I guess my feet need to be turned out a little or farther apart? I bought "Kettlebells for dummies" 'cause I'm cool like that and it actually looks like a good resource.
Today I am picking up a few more items for the apartment and printing recipes
