Weight is still yo-yoing. At my lowest Iwas down to 156, now I seem to keep hovering in the low 170's, I've gained and lost the same 7-8 pounds many times this last few months. With Warren and the changes in schedules I've just found too many excuses not to go the the gym and work out the hour a day I was doing. Which has a lot to do with it (and the cookies, and the potatos, and the juice and the snacking and the occasional binge).
I've been doing my reading and I'm convinced I am hypoglycemic. When I follow the hypo diet I am much better. I was so grey yesterday (moodwise) and just cranky, pissy and out of my self. I had eaten basically nothing but carbs that day and a good portion of the day before, they were healthy carbs, but still no protien or fat really. (not good fat anyway). That night as soon as I had some soy yogurt and some nuts it was like the curtain rose up. I later had a veggie burger and some oven fries and some garden fresh cucumber slices (having friends with large gardens is wonderful) and I was totally back to myself again.
This mornign I had eggs and ww toast with some leftover oven fries. I was totally back in the grove. I vaccummed, did the dishes and washed Warren's laundry as well as washed the kitchen floor, all before Church (UU). I feel so much better.
I made cookies yesterday (healthier cookies, but still cookies with tons of sugar and fat). I found a great new recipe for peanut butter cookies with mashed bananas, oatmeal, flax and chocolate chips (vegan). You can add almost anything. I tweaked the recipe a bit, but they are great. A bit cakey but stilll quite good.
I made a great vegetarian potato salad earlier today. (it sounds weird, but a good vinegrette dressing and some good quality mustard with some chopped onions, celery, peppers and fresh rosemary is heavenly, especially with baby potatos I also cook some garlic with the potatos to give them a subtle flavor). I was going to go to a veg potluck,but then changed my mind. I am also going to bake up some squash and zhuccini before they go bad. I should be set for the week. Just cook some quinoa and beans and I'll be ready to go.
Another funny bird story to go with yesterday:
When I was in early elementary my folks decided that in addition to the chickens we had every year, and the cows I think we still had at that time, that they would also add geese and turkeys. The geese didn't work so well. Our dog killed one, and the others just didn't thrive. The turkeys however were another story. They were huge, and they were the most annoying birds ever to not fly.
It was bad enough they used to roost on my dad's machinery so he'd have to check the tractor seats (old tractor, no cab) for turkey poo each time he'd get on. They also would jump on the cars and scratch the paint, and go after our dog, ( a poodle who thought he was a cat), who acted tough until he was called on it, than turned turkey so to speak. He once got chased by a rabbit, but that's another story)
They also used to chase my brother (so they did have some good points) and pick at anything shiny. They also used to leave suprises on the sidewalk and steps (I still don't know why my folks just fence the damn things). Keep in mind we are talking about turkeys in the neighborhood of 40 plus pounds live.
One of the turkey's had a thing for lights. It would climb up on the banister of our steps and pick at the door bell. My poor mother was dingdong ditched half a dozen times before she figured out it was the damn turkey. I was in school and my brother was at that time to little to do it. Finally the last time my mom came to the door and found her self eye to eye with a very curious turkey. I still get a laugh when I think of that bird.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.
I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.
I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
