I guess I can tell you about last night. Although it wasn't very exciting, it WAS very productive. I spent HOURS balancing the checking accounts and reconciling them with statements. Then I spent more HOURS paying bills. At first I had a mild heart attack because after balancing them and entering all the recent transactions into the computer, we had about $400 less than I thought we had. And I was like "Wha?? Wouldn't we be overdrawn?" and then after I rearranged all the monthly bills to make do (it was stressful and hard and I had to sacrifice all my spending money and our grocery money) I figured out that I had missed entering a recent $400 deposit. THANK GOD! So then it was like I had $400 all over again! Yeah! I was a bill paying Maniac. I paid off two entire credit cards this month. Husband is so proud!
So for lunch, today and on any typical day, I eat salad. Can you BELIEVE that? South Beach has done it's number on me. I used to HATE salad. Whenever husband said "want a salad" I was like NO. He would always try to convince me, but I have always felt that Salads just took up room that was meant for REAL food. Meat and potatoes! But now, I have eaten a salad for lunch almost every single day for 5 months. Unbelievable. I still can't fathom it, and I see it with my very eyes. But my salads go a little like this:
Lettuce (not that crappy iceberg shit. Field Greens or Italian Mix for me)
Mushrooms. Lots of them.
Tuna Fish (yum!)
Hard Boiled Eggs
Oriental Noodles (love that crunch!)
Bacon Bits on occasion
Little packet of Buttermilk Ranch Dressing (the good kind, fat free and light have more carbs!)
