Down 10

Howdy friends! Soo I went to the eye doc last Thursday for a check up, and it turns out that I had a virus in my left eye … icky! I wore my glasses for a few days, but that was okay – I had eye drops to help with the inflammation, and my insurance paid for my entire doc visit and the prescriptions, so huzzah! (Miss Calliope wanted some cuddles, so I obliged!)

Okeeeey y’all, I came to a conclusion a few days ago ~ I’ve been eating waaaaay too much over the past few months (i.e. like over the last eight months-ish) and I need to tone down my portions as I’m losing weight (I’ve lost 10 lbs as of today). Indeed, there CAN be too much of a good thing when it comes to food! It’s all about the process of learning how to eat, however, and it’s interesting to come from a place of recovery (Center for Discovery in Bellevue, WA) into the real world! I’m now attempting to eat a little less, but not in a way of deprivation … so here we go with random meals ~


My breakfasts as of late usually consist of a piece of fruit or two, depending on how hungry I am feeling.


Lunch typically is eaten at work – I pack salads and sandwiches most of the time. Howev, we had Torchy’s Tacos one day while I was off, and it was a treat (if you read this blog regularly, you know that Luke and I are big fans of Torchy’s – it’s right by our apartment, and it’s like $23 for a queso and four tacos).


Clearly snacking to me = veggies and dip, consisting mainly of cucs.


In other fun news, hubs purchased a reloading kit for his workbench – love my happy hubby with his new toy!

Silly selfie with my muscular man!

And yes, I’ve been terrible about posting – it’s hard to have a full time job and post regularly, but I’d like to get a bit better at it. Fingers crossed!

Have a fab day, my friends!
