Chubby Girl Diary Day 6
Chubby Girl Diary Day 6
I’ve been up for awhile but have had a busy morning. I only mention this because I know my 7:49am is later than usual
I didn’t weigh this morning. I wasn’t perfect this weekend. I didn’t have internet was in the middle of nowhere while we were camping.
We had an amazing time and it was gorgeous! We’re kind of “suburban campers” LOL…well, to an extent anyway. Steve has his ham radio license and he likes to make remote contacts. We take a car battery so he can hook his radio up. Since we knew it was going to be in the high 30s, we also took some 12 volt electric blankets to put inside of our sleeping bags. Steve (very tech savvy guy) took off the part that would plug into like a car cigarette lighter and hooked it up to the car battery. We stayed plenty warm and our new 4 season tent really did it’s job! I think Steve and I are just too old to get very much out of tent camping. We never sleep well when we camp. He wakes with his shoulders hurting and I wake with my hips hurting. When I say “wake”, I don’t mean when we wake of a morning but when we wake 500 times a night LOL. We got up somewhere between 4:30am and 5:00am and built a fire and drank coffee, lots and lots of coffee! It was flippin’ cold! Andrew slept until about 7:30am and was a happy little guy with no “I’m old” aches and pains but yeah, it was cold! Bruno, our little 3 pound dog, always sleeps under the covers of our bed at home and sleeps in my sleeping bag when we camp. When we’re outside, he gets under Steve’s fleece pullover that I wear over my layers of clothes. It was really really cold! We tried to get him to stay in the tent but he’s a mamma’s boy.
I think this trip has convinced us what we’ve debated for years…it’s RV time. We talked about it in Kentucky and wanted one. Now that we’re in Colorado, we want one. We’ll be buying a house sometime in late spring to early summer next year and will get an RV after that … unless some amazing deal arises before that. We really love the retro RVs and would love to find something old that we can make to look our own inside. Ideally, we would find something stupid cheap that nobody wants because it’s old and ugly and then make it look like it jumped out of IKEA on the inside
Okay, back to the diet…hey, it’s my diary, I can go off topic LOL.
I did make the Chinese Beef and Broccoli while we were camping and it was amazing! I forgot to take the cornstarch But I can’t imagine it would have tasted any better! Yes, this picture stinks but hey, I was cold and it was dark
I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee
We went out looking at houses and neighborhoods tonight. No, we aren’t moving for about 6 – 8 months but we’re new to Colorado and we’re surrounded by a ton of tiny cities. We aren’t familiar with the cities or the neighborhoods. Since we aren’t pressed for time, we’re taking our time and getting to know whatever we can so we’re well prepared.
We went to Walmart tonight and I was mega craving chocolate! I picked up a package of Atkins Peanut Butter Cup. Have you ever had these things? OMG, they’re to die for! 5 points per package.
