Menu change to simple beef curry and roasted veggies. I am making only the non-starchiest veggies tonight. Only 2 smallish carrots, lots of zucchini, broc and cauliflower and some green pepper. yummssssss I'll probably eat most or all of the veggies as hubby will heap his plate with rice and load on the curry. I've only had 6 grams of carbs today so I should be okay. the veggies will not put me over 30 grams. and I'll slather them in butter so I get enough fat today too.
Going to be weird this weekend - hubby will be gone one night and I'll be alone in the house for the first time EVER!!! I will probably spend a lot of time online.
I forgot to take my supplements for 4 days! Dumb......... I need to b's and d's cuz I'm deficient - so forgetting to take them is not good for me.
Of all its been a good day. I got up and went to work this morning cuz its my early day - was off by noon. Came home and walked 2.25 miles that felt good cuz I haven't walked in 6 days - moved over the weekend, then just couldn't my butt out in the COLD! Today was not too bad - 39 F on my way home. Still needed all my heavy stuff - but I was toasty warm. I think that distance is my comfort zone. Any farther and I get achy legs and feet. I spent too much on the computer this afternoon. Made curry and chai and got the veggies ready to roast. Not sure when hubby is going to be home so don't know when to start heating up the oven. The worst thing about owning your own business is the hours. But - I've managed to deal with it for 11 years, so I guess its not that bad!
I'm trying to find something to boost my libido......... the pitfall of menopause. The Maca hasn't made any difference. I take 2 pills a day - I don't want to take more cuz heart issues are a factor at higher doses and I already have bilateral PVC's and a slight mitral valve prolapse. Don't want to risk making that stuff worse. I still have lots of pills left and will take them just for the sake of not being wasteful! I'm pretty disappointed though - I thought for sure they would work. I DO NOT want to do HRT cuz I think thats just messing with my hormones - I'm MEANT to not have those anymore - so force feeding them to my body is not a good idea. I hate to admit it - but I'm considering my doctors advice........... erotica. I haven't tried reading a good sexy book. Hubby and I have watched "those" movies a couple times - but I just find them gross and vulger! Unless you add rum to the equation and then something might happen - but haven't watched once since the Big M hit several years ago. Too bad I can't get them from Netflix - cuz I just bring myself to go into the adult shops. NASTY! The few times we've rented one - hubby has gone without me. Oh well - I'll keep searching for an answer. Maybe some chinese herbal remedy --- maybe lots of OYSTERS!
The house is smelling heavenly - I love those spices filling the air!
