It feels like more and more often I’m having meh days, bad days or just plain ol’ horrible days. Over the past week I’ve felt like I have gotten myself back and you know what? I’ve missed me!!

I enjoyed today. Yeah, I was at work and that kinda sucks, but overall I had an amazing day and it feels really good.

I’m not sure what made today so great, just that it was and I’m thankful for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today was the first full day of being on the South Beach Diet again. Having real, clean food was refreshing and yummy!

Last night we had taco trays w/ salad, chicken and spicy beans on the side.


For breakfast this morning, it was what will probably be the standard for the next two weeks, scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. Pretty uninteresting, but yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lunch today was salad (sensing the theme yet?) w/ tuna. You can’t see the tuna under the salad, but believe me it’s there!

Dinner tonight was roast veggies (sweet red pepper, cauliflower and broccoli) with chicken and salad. It was pretty easy, just whacked everything into one non-stick pan, seasoned the veggies, poured some Nando’s Hot Marinade on the chicken and baked it covered for 25 minutes, then took the cover off for the last 10. Yum!


Dessert was just your bog standard Angel Delight, which we haven’t had for years. But it’s perfect for SBD and banana is my fave! Mmmm!

I did my Insanity workout tonight when I got home. I had to suffer through it a bit, lacking motivation, but I got through it and I swear I can do some of the moves much better now. Power Jumps and V Pushups especially!!

And someone said some nice things about me, which made me feel really good (and also helped with my motivation) and I’m now more determined to do what I need to do to be stronger and healthier.

My goal for tomorrow is not to have a better day than today, but to remain positive and stay motivated. I know that will be especially difficult this week, but I’m going to give it my all. I’d like to feel like I’ve done really well at the end of the week, but need to accomplish that one day at a time.

I hope you all had a good day, too! <3

  1. Tish, This past year has been the most difficult for me also in the past 12 or so. I can relate to change as you well know, depression in it’s definition confusses me. I get down, I get lonely, I miss you in my daily life ever since i left for Japan and you left for UK. I miss our discussion over diner at the coffee table at night, our walks in the park on Shore Drive and our drinks at The Reef. You need to know that “NO BODY” but “NO BODY” should have the power to make you feel ill about you or you life, take into concideration your Husband who knows you the best and loves you the most, everyone else can Fuck OFF! Don’t ever be afraid to say that and mean it, if they walk away from you due to that, they were never ever a true friend, my close true friends and Brothers in life have told me that many times and I respect them for telling me that I have no say in that area of thier lives. To this, these people are my closest friends in life.

    I Love you Tish with all my heart and soul, you are a part of me and you have made me a better man the day you were born. Thank you

    Love Dad

    1. I miss you too, playing chess in that cafe after our walks and our “debates”. ๐Ÿ™‚ And you’re right! I love you so much ๐Ÿ™‚
