A few words sum up my feelings. Nuts, too many nuts.
My hormones seem to be a on a three week cycle. I need to get Mary and Johns book on menopause. I craved nuts, felt nuts and ate nuts. I ate about 4 handfuls. That's not an ounce. I plan on making banana oat muffins!! YEAH!!!
I found out why we use "lb" as an abbreviation by looking it up on the intertubes. I was at the Country Boy store, and this foreign woman keeps asking the cashier how much per 'L B'. She had enough presence of mind to finally say that she couldn't understand what word she was pronouncing. The woman pointed at the sign with "per pound - lb- cost". Then I realized I had no idea why we used the abbreviation "lb" for pound. Now I think I sort of know. We are not Spain though we took the Doctrine of Discovery from them.
Well back to feeling nuts. I feel fat and that makes me nutty. I don't need anymore nuts either way!! I saw Dr Oz yesterday and he made me feel nutty too, when he says "you people with belly fat need to eat fat" WTF??? Sorry pal, but I don't need to wear anymore fat so don't tell me its ok to eat it. I STILL need to lose about 20 pounds at the very least and I've lost the steam. I will celebrate my birthday by trying a therapeutic fast. I don't understand how to take care of myself so I doubt I'll be doing the best thing but I'll read and try it.
Anyway I'll try to watch Dr. Oz, for some strange reason, when Julieanna Heaver is on it. My father wanted to name me Julianna but my mother was against it. The registrar decided to name me herself and on my birth cert she put Julia. My mother had to write in and change it. When I went to get a copy of my Birth Cert they had "computerized" the system and the stupid lady put my name as Julia on it, so they had to redo it. And then there are people who call me Julia. Oh well. I like the name Julieana.
Ok, its going to be crazy on Sat, with chance of snow. I hope we can make a crazy Halloween Party. I wish I could make an adult party. I wish I could visit the people at Occupy sites, too. I was going to request the presence of my father and ask him to comment on some old pictures I have and the stories behind them. I need to ask tomorrow. It's last minute but who knows.
I made some cool dinner. I couldn't find my steamer pot for the rice maker
and you don't even begin to know how frustrating that is. Things disappear around here and no ones has a clue as to where things might be. So instead of steaming the beet greens and watercress I just threw them on top of the brown rice at the end, as well as some chopped ginger. I like that. I will freeze some pumpkin and make some frozen pumpkin sorbet, too. I just need some more apple cider to make hot mulled cider. I made the black bean dip and ate too many "mini pitas" (I'm afraid fat is slipping in from every angle).brown rice with greens (beet greens and watercress, and red kuri squash

I also ate a great big salad yesterday. So those nut problems are being sorted out but I still feel the affects.
