I had a good day. Walked the dog. Nice shower. Some snow dusted the streets when I went out this morning and the wind was quite "blustery".
Tried my new Jillian Whey Protein Mix for lunch. I mixed one scoop with water and 12 frozen Walmart strawberries and it was pretty thin, sour and not very nice. I added a spoon of sugar and a splash of soy milk. Better but no creamy strawberry shake taste. It was better than eating crackers or chips. I will try it with soy milk tomorrow and I have bananas so I can add one of those to see if that helps. All the additions add calories. But not as many as half a box of Wheat Thins.
QVC sent a letter stating that they had credited my card with a refund. They had no Pilates machines (like mine) in stock even though they had told me they had plenty when I returned the defective one. I am feeling very sad about this turn of events. Machines at the manufacturer's site cost $400 more than the one I bought and are the same machine. At least the picture looks just the same.
G came home from work an hour early because he was "just plain tired" which is a good thing. He usually doesn't notice that he has over extended himself and just tries to keep going. Knowing when you have done enough and are really tired is a positive sign. He and Riley are asleep on the dog bed.
We had Chinese take out yesterday. I ate half of my Sesame Chicken and decided I don't like Chinese Food anymore. Could have been that it was "chicken". Or is something happening to food? I am buying my regular products and they all taste odd. Even my Kraft Mac and Cheese didn't make my tastebuds happy. I'm not taking any medication. Food just tastes odd. And I crave SALT.
I am going to reheat the Sesame Chicken for G and add some fresh steamed broccoli. Then serve him rhubarb pie and coffee. I don't know what I will make--perhaps a nice salad if the lettuce is still edible. I always like a nice salad with feta, olives and ranch dressing. Salty.
Early to bed for all three of us I think.
