Mind Over Matter!

Good day y’all! I hope the world is right with everyone today. Tomorrow is Friday and that happens to be excellent news. Also, I’m not going to lie...I look pretty cute today. I don’t say that often but there is a long, new skirt involved and a shirt with lace...so yeah...it’s not too bad. I’m not going to post a picture because I want you to just take my word for it. The only slight problem I have with the ensemble is that it’s sleeveless and my arms aren’t exactly where I want them to be but it’s summer and I have several cute sleeveless shirts I want to wear so I guess I will just have to let them come out and play or I won’t get to look very summery at all...and trust me...it is SUMMER...it’s hot as mess out there.

A couple of weeks ago, my Weight Watchers calculator went caput. I relied on it pretty heavily because I could just take it out at the store and figure out how much everything is in points. I went there to get a new one today and they no longer carry the $10 calculator I had but they did have a new $12 one...





Forgive all of the pictures (and my stubby thumb) but I wanted you to get the full effect of my Inspector Gadget calculator...it makes this sweet sliding noise...I’ve been sliding it all afternoon. I am VERY easily entertained...but it truly works better than the last one...I like it.

So, the past few days have been very mentally challenging for some reason...I constantly feel like I need to eat even though I’m not hungry. Even though I don’t always follow my own advice, I have a couple of suggestions for you when you face the challenge of making your mind truly overcome “hunger.” Let’s say you eat a satisfying lunch like a salad and baked potato on a Saturday and within 10 minutes, you feel like you are hungry or you need to eat. This happens to me all the time because I am the kind of person that eats when I’m bored. If this happens, I would say it’s a bad idea to continue to sit on the couch and watch TV because I know for me, that is a place that I eat. You could go watch TV in your bed or you could do something outlandish...exercise. You could go walking or swimming. If you’ve already exercised, you could knit or read. The other thing I would say is don’t do things that you associate with food. For me, I LOVE getting popcorn at the movies so when I go to the movies, I make sure that I have eaten beforehand or I have a snack because if I have to sit there hungry...I won’t even be able to concentrate on the movie. I have really got to take my own advice because Saturdays are the absolute worse. Those are a few ideas that may not be awesome advice because unfortunately, when your brain tells you that you are hungry...it’s very hard to convince it otherwise. LOL...I know that’s not very encouraging...good luck.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great afternoon and night!

“And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you're around

And here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me, why?

You could write a book on how
To ruin someone's perfect day
Well, I get so confused and frustrated
Forget what I'm trying to say, oh

I'm sick and tired of your reasons
I got no one to believe in
You tell me that you want me, then push me around

And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you're around

Here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me, why?

Why do you have to make me feel small
So you can feel whole inside?
Why do you have to put down my dreams
So you're the only thing on my mind?

I'm sick and tired of your attitude
I'm feeling like I don't know you
You tell me that you want me then cut me down

I'm sick and tired of your reasons
I've got no one to believe in
You ask me for my love then you push me around

Here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me, why? Why? Tell me, why?

I take a step back, let you go
I told you I'm not bulletproof
Now you know.” Tell Me Why-Taylor Swift
