Happy Ground Hog Day y'all. Is that proper to say "happy" in front of it? I have no clue but happy day anyway. The little bugger sees his shadow in our neck of the woods. That means six more weeks of something, don't remember just what. But I'll enjoy six more weeks of it anyway.
So yesterday I went to publix and got some fruit and veggies, I didn't get to the fruit stand. It was so windy you can't believe. And I just had all my windows washed on Wednesday. The wind blows salty air around near the coast if you are not familiar with that and they get all slimy and stuff. Yucky. Anyway they don't look like they were just washed any more.
I'm adjusting nicely to living in the condo with the new stuff. I like the choices I made. Would I do anything differently? Maybe the fabric on the sofas, more pink and less "yellowy-green". But I still like them and I'll be happy. The two rugs are still not here yet.
I was thinking about something. I know I do that too much, right? Anyway I was thinking about how calories work. And if eating at a certain time of day matters. I heard that you shouldn't eat after 7:00 and stuff like that but it doesn't make any sense to me. Calories are fuel. Like gasoline in your car is fuel. It doesn't matter what time you fill your tank with gasoline does it? It's the same full whatever time. I think it's the same with calories.
I also think you should drink water before bed though. And eat something. Just a small snack to hold you till morning. If I don't I wake up hungry. Then I can't go back to sleep until I drink water or eat something. Or both. So I try to have something at bedtime like a banana or cottage cheese or cereal. Not more than 150 calories.
I was asked to give some ideas about bee bandwagon snacks. Here are some of my favorites: fruit, cereal, cottage cheese, 100 calorie snack bag (not my favorite), dried apple snack, yogurt, pretzels, popcorn. Here is something I like. Pop a bag of microwave popcorn and put it in a container with a good lid. Add some pretzels, a few nuts, a few raisins, some cheerios, even some m&m's. Then have a cup of this when you want a sweet/salty snack. But don't pick out all the m&m's at one time! lol And if you make a bunch of baggies of this stuff (which I do) it's better if you keep it in the freezer or it will get soggy and not crisp.
So that's it from paradise for today my friends. Have a great Saturday. I will too.
