Yeah. It is. David has taken his annual July 4th week off. It actually started on Friday last week, which means the TV is blaring whatever catches his attention. It has mostly been nothing but Star Trek The Next Generation for now. Yeah, I can only take "going where no one has gone before" for just so long before I go crazier than I am. Amazingly, he isn't watching Jerry Springer or Maury . . . yet. I'll give him a couple of days before that's all he watches for the rest of the week.
Anywho, I'm in the living room for the duration where it's quiet and cool, no TV shouting it's commercials or lame daytime TV shows at me. The puppies are here with me too. I guess they like the quiet. Lucy has remained at my side since Friday. getting all the love and attention from me. She loves her mommy more I guess. David comes into the living room once in a while when he's bored. I really think it's to see what I'm up to or to see where the puppies have gone. He's lonely, poor baby.
This morning David woke me up early and we went out for breakfast. It was nice to get out, we could smell our neighbors firing up their grills for their BBQ. You have to start really early in the morning to get the brisket nice and tender. I made David laugh when I said, "God I love the smell of napalm in the mornin." It was pretty smoky, even worse when we got back.
I'm making BBQ chicken breasts, baked potatoes, on the grill and corn on the cob. I made a nice carrot cake and banana bread yesterday. Y'all won't believe this, but I lost another 4 lbs since I saw my doctor 2 weeks ago. I've been eating regular 3 meals a day, just like anyone else, but I've changed how I eat. I found if I eat a large meal in the morning and a medium meal in the afternoon and then a small meal like soup and a few crackers or just a tuna sandwich for dinner, I feel better and I noticed I sleep better.
Before, I felt bloated all the time. I wanted to diet, but every diet I read about turned out to be expensive. I wanted something I could turn into a diet that wasn't really expensive or restricting. Then I heard a quote by Adelle Davis, "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper." She was a nutritionist and author of several books. So far my blood sugar has regulated itself back to normal. I don't have the spikes or the low sugar shakes as I call them and my lipids are normal again too. Since I 've been eating like this, I've lost 9 lbs and feel great. I don't feel hungry or the urge to eat between meals like snacking which kills a diet. David is eating this way too. He told me at breakfast that he needs to buy another belt because the one he has is too big. His jeans are hanging off him, so new jeans will be on that list of things to buy.
Well, I have things to do, so y'all have a great 4th of July.
