Kim let me use her truck while she was working a couple days ago, so I went to Pahrump, NV. I had hoped to buy a new cell phone to replace the tracfone I lost on New Years…but no such luck. Anyways, I went grocery shopping at Walmart.
Yes employees get free breakfast & lunch at work, but it’s not always good and definitely not the healthiest food to eat. But seeing as I have gained weight since being here I must be eating enough of it.
Well I am assuming that the return of annoying heartburn and the need for bigger clothes is caused by my poor diet of free meals along with to much beer & pringles after work.
I sat my fat ass down and remembered how I stopped the heartburn before. I stopped eating crap (or at least what I call crap), and it worked before because the heartburn instantly went away when I left my family’s home in NH, and I was no longer eating with my aunt anymore. I had moved to AZ, and was eating mostly fruit, veggies & frozen fish.
Then when I moved to Las Vegas, I was able to lose more weight. In fact I weighed about 40 pounds less then I do today. Now how does anyone lose weight in Vegas…easy when you don’t have a steady job to pay for food. Then when I went back to work for Xanterra, I was able to eat more…and I do. Which is why I am 40 pounds heavier then when I left Vegas 7 months ago.
Now all I have is a mini dorm-fridge & a blender, so I have no way to store or cook a bunch of frozen fish. But I can eat good stuff like
Kim brought me home these veggies last week. They are great with hummus.
I also bought the food below at Walmart this week..
I don’t really like just straight almond milk, but when it’s mixed with peanut butter, protein powder and a banana then it’s not bad. Only thing is…I learned last night that I have to hide bananas because otherwise Kim will eat a few while I am at work. Did you noticed the little packages of Chia seeds & hemp seeds? Well those will go into smoothies. I love the effect chia seeds have in smoothies but the hemp seeds are a new item for me to try.
I will be making laughing to myself when I go into work with my hemp seed protein smoothie. You always here about work places having a zero-drug policy or being a drug-free zone and I plan on sipping on my hemp smoothie at work all evening. The package of hemp says it has 5 grams of protein, 1 gram of carbs, and 10% of the daily value for iron. So I am calling it my new health food.
