One guess! No, it is not the Queen. It is me! Thankfully, applying ice immediately and cold water stopped tissue damage and I’m right as rain again. Rain, not reign. That’s still the Queen.
Do you see that adorable mug? It’s my Hello Bacon mug! No, they’re not for sale. It’s too close to Sanrio’s trademark for their liking, but I love it, so I had some items made for me. I even have a mouse pad and a tote bag with this cute little insignia! It makes me smile, and I like to smile.
When I smile it reminds me of things. Like removing my mud mask before I leave the house this time. Brushing away the last vestiges of broccoli. To put on deodorant. Pickles. To pluck my eyebrows. To wear socks. It’s Friday. Did I tell you I also have a very short attention
Now to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge!… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for the daily play-by-play and to see what I’m doing. Whee!
I ate this:
Breakfast: salami + green olives + cheese + 1/4 cup mixed nuts
Lunch: some fresh cucumber slices (they’re crispy) + Pad Thai
Dinner: Taco Star super nachos plate sans the chippie dippies + toppings from a slice of all-meat Papa Murphy’s Pizza
Snack: Too many pizza toppings with meat and cheese. It was decadent and wonderful, but I wasn’t hungry. I’m sure I had at least 4 slices’ worth. I will be extra good Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Notes: I need to figure out if the soy sauce I used–though fermented– gave me issues last night. I had the tingling in the mouth and issues I typically have with soy after the Pad Thai I made last night. I’m not 100% sure what caused the problems, but I’m going to keep it simple until weigh in on Monday for TOPS. I want to have another loss and not have a dumb gain due to inflammation.
What I learned:
I just like stuff.
Big and small, I like it all. Whether I am happy with my heat-proof spatulas or simplifying my kitchen, using vinegar instead of spot remover in the dishwasher or making my laundry soap, it’s all just fun stuff. I love the smell of my soy candles, the bright light coming from my little plant grower, my pink Remington hearing protectors and books. I have literally hundreds and hundreds of books.
I know I am thankful for all of you, too! I love when you comment or send me emails. It’s so much fun getting to meet so many of you and hearing about how you are doing and reading about your families.
I hope you have a lot of things to have fun with and be thankful for, too! Big and small, treasure them all.
