Feeling Nauseous

I'm feeling quite nauseous today.  Seeing as my two boys and my husband were sick earlier this week it looks like it's my turn.  I'm caught in a state of wanting to eat because I'm hungry but feeling nauseous so I don't want to eat much and not eating much is making me feel even more nauseous. 

I just had some fat free yogurt with active cultures in the hopes that the cultures will do something to combat the 'bug' in my gut.  Not sure it will work but it's worth a try.  So far so good.  I took a peak in the cupboard to see what else would appeal to my stomach.  Low and behold I found a package of Ramen Noodles!  The last time I ate Ramen I was getting over a bad case of the flu.  That seemed to be the only thing that tasted good (because of the high sodium in the flavor packet I only used a scant amount for a little bit of flavor).  Would I recommend buying them? - nope! - but in my college days that was a cheap food and sometimes you just eat what tastes good to get anything down.  After checking out the nutrition info on Ramen Noodles one package contains two servings and one serving is worth five WW points.  If I feel desperate I may give it a try later on. To eat or not to eat that is the question?  What would you do?

There's another reason why I'm feeling nauseous today and that is over what happened to Lara Logan.  I couldn't believe what I was hearing when I listened to the news last night.  I'll spare you the details and let you read about it somewhere else online.  I'm outraged at how something like that could happen.  What is going on in a country where a women is assaulted in the streets during a 'celebration'?

Hoping the nauseous feelings go away soon and something can be learned from all this.  Lara my heart aches for what you went through.  Sending you prayers of healing and comfort.

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad.

I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing …

Mini Blizzards

Genius


Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot.

Here is the download on 'nutrition' for the Mini PB cup Blizzard (http://www.calories-nutrition.buddyslim.com/dairy-queen-blizzard-mini/):
