Bb is for beef, big

Bb is for beef.

I grew up eating beef. My parents would buy either a half or a quarter of a beef and it was in the freezer, only there would be a store in town that rented spaces in it's freezer, that's where we had it. I try to go with the chicken diets that dieters are suppose to eat, and it just doesn't do it. I'm too attached to wanting my food to taste good and to be satisfied when I eat. It's probably why the weight doesn't go down as much or as quickly as recommended. Yet I'm toughing it out because, I want the life style change. Anyway, I bought two round steaks for 3.49 a pound, and I spent $10. And I was going to freeze them, but the grain of the beef was really pretty, so I'm not sure what the proceedure is called, but I turned the electic burner on high and cut the meet into five pieces each and individually fired the meat fast on each side, and it was med rare. Only then I let it cool and put it in the baggies and then froze them. Price per baggie? About 1-2 dollars each comparable to a value sandwich at McDonalds. I had only a few minutes to eat the other night and I microwaved one of the pieces with veggies~~the thing was somewhere between 2-6 ounces. Beef satisfies me. I don't have to eat it every day. That and with the raw veggies, mmmm.

Last night I was at work and learning that on break, I need to eat something, it's a long time after break until I go home~~This time I bought those little things of apple sauce and my carrots. Because it's a short break and I'm eating cruncy things, I eat slower. Carrots and mustard.

Big apple--slept for a while last night, actually from 6 pm to 9 pm then went grocery shopping around 11 pm, store was empty and easy to maneuver about. Bought apples and carrots and walnuts and potatoes and beans and celery and watermelon and milk and bread. I even got a bottle of carrot juice and it was good. Now for breakfast, I'm having one of those big apples and a potato! It says that after I nuke it, wrap it in foil for 5 minutes, ok will try it. Only 100 calories for the potato!

Tonight, I have to brush up my math skills, and i haven't used them for a very long time. Possible job needs me to take an on-line math test. Been working on it all day.......87 questions, I have 20 done. Slope, rise, run....that's the one that I'm doing a math tutor on now to bring those skills back. Enjoy the challenge......hope I can get the skills back asap!
