Saving My Life

Anything I post on here about PCOS or any other condition, is general information or information I've accumulated in my experience having PCOS or other conditions. I'm not a doctor, so nothing I say should EVER take place of a real diagnosis from your doctor. My eating plan described on this blog is one I've made for myself and I'm constantly changing it according to my body's needs.

A Good Day

Ok, it may take me a couple days to get this blueprint thing done. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I haven't had ample time to get down to the nitty gritty. I'm still eating ok, but can't wait to get my new plan up and running. I spent time with my family today. It was David's last day off work for the week, so I asked him if we could go out. Surprisingly he said yes even though he just got the new Prince of Persia game. Anyway, we went to Spartanburg to hang out.
We went to the big mall there...and guess what they found as soon as we got there? Need help? An arcade! lol

We did end up walking around the mall a lot, so that was fun. I went to the Yankee Candle store and restrained myself. I love, LOVE candles. Then we went to Barnes and Noble....

I did not restrain myself at Barnes and Noble. I've been waiting for the new Sookie Stackhouse book forevah! It was finally there and I bought a journal as well to keep track of food stuff and exercise stuff. It's actually a neat little thing. I'll talk about it more in my next post. I was a bit excited about my new book. lol

We came home after eating lunch at a Japanese restaraunt (no MSG btw..I was so happy). I had hibachi beef and 3 pieces of a California roll. Breakfast was my usual Kashi cereal w/walnuts and almond milk.
Dinner wasn't a big to do since David had some leftovers from "his" dinner I cooked the night before (cubed steak w/ gravy). I made my kids almond butter sandwiches on whole wheat, carrot sticks & broccoli w/dressing, sunflower seeds, and grapes for their dinner. So, I took the opportunity to cook for myself.

These are the first of my mustard greens from my spring garden. Totally pesticides...just dirt rinsed off...and maybe a few aphids.  I sauteed them in a tsp. of EVOO, a little minced garlic, and fresh ground sea salt...yummy.
Then I boiled some lima beans w/ a pinch of sea salt and onion powder. I chopped up a baby summer squash with a small piece of onion and sauteed it in 1/2tsp. butter w/ minced garlic and a pinch of sea salt. We had some stone ground cornbread leftover from the night before that my daughter baked, so I warmed a wedge of it w/ some sharp cheddar on it. I added a few grape tomatoes on the side of my plate and voila...dinner was done...southern style. Although the tomatoes should be sliced tomatoes and usually there's meat traditionally, but if you guys haven't figured it out yet I'm not a huge meat person. I crave steak like every once in a bue moon. I wish I had better pics of this meal but the lighting in my house is horrible....stupid long life bulbs that don't give off much light. lol Heh, I guess that's why they have a long life aye?  I wish I could make meals like this all the time. The only things my husband would eat on that plate would be mustard greens and cornbread though...he wouldn't eat the beans and the squash would need to be fried. Forget the grape tomatoes. lol Oh was nice having my kitchen all to myself tonight and I had a great day w/ my family. Hope you all had great days too. ☺☺☺


  1. nice looks like you all had a great time. faboush.
    Have a great night kim.

  2. Yea for steak !! Barnes and Noble and Borders are HAZARDOUS to my finfncial health. I go in, things jump at me and I walk out at least 200 bucks lighter every single time, and none of it has ever been for funj reading ( I study herbal medicine and alternative healing, homeschool things and hubby keeps up with his computer tech stuff and so on). Yankee Candle is another hazard and if you toss in a Bath and Body Works you can say that I am spending my son's inheritance ! Arcades are something we often walk into - my hubby works for a company that makes arcade games , and the excuse is that we have to go check out to see if his product is placed in there. Of course my son protests every time.....

  3. ok I have found mah 'sookie friend'...I''m almost finished reading the new book. I loves Eric. what about you?
