packages and pants problems

I am STILL sick.  Will this go away?  However, Dan thought I should try some exercising to see if it helps me kick this.  I hopped onto the elliptical.  For 8 minutes.  Does that count?  I’m still so exhausted!  I’m still miserable.  Looks like the blogging and working-out trend is catching on! The Fabfatties tweeted today about their new treadmill set up.  Next step is to get healthy enough to use my new elliptical contraption…

I had a few nice surprises today.  First, my new eye-fi came! Second, I got a food photography book.  I can’t wait to start reading it.  Third, Dan came home with a new shipment of Mix 1s last night!  I was so excited to have these back in the mixture.IMG_2464_edited-1
Yum, these are much lighter than the other types of Mix 1s.  My last surprise came from yesterday’s food shop.  Dan bought me some Just Pineapple!  I didn’t even ask for it.  Dan saw that I mentioned it on the blog and just thought to buy it.  Isn’t that cute?  What should I mention on here next? Diamond necklace?  New camera? New lenses…
I could barely handle eating this apple.  So sad.  It could have been so tasty.
Lunch was small because I was not enjoying food.  Another PB&J.  I have officially finished an entire loaf of bread this week.  I NEVER eat that much bread.  Thank goodness it coincided with Nature’s Pride bread sent to me by foodbuzz.  I do have to say, this bread is tasty.  I can’t really get flavors much, but the bread has some good texture to it. 
For dinner I had a choice.  Delicious mushroom pizza that Dan made last night or butternut squash and apple soup.  I looked longingly at the pizza while I dished out a bowl of the soup.  I have to resign myself to the fact that I can not really eat.  The soup was perfect.
IMG_2469_edited-1I am loving the rustic fall flavors.  And look-e here, today is another meatless day.  Go me!

I’d like to end this post with a little NSV bragging.  Last night out of habit I got a small bowl of ice cream.  Then, without eating any I put it all back.  I know.  Crazy, right?  But I’d like to credit that (and other similar actions) to the weight loss I saw this morning and to the fact that yet another pair of pants is looking too big.  Which leads me to a quick rant. 

Where is the sweet spot with pants, when they just look/feel good.  I seem to only have pants that go from muffin top to too loose.  I guess I need to buy more wide-legged pants. Does anyone else see this problem?
