cream cheese dreams do come true!!

Friday, July 29, 2016

Well, as this day is winding down, I can say, it had its ups and its lows.
First, I went straight to my doctors appt this mornng, and was happy that my blood pressure was under control and that I was actually down 8 pounds since my last visit.
4 less than the goal I had set, but I will take any weight loss and be happy for it.
Afterwards, I drove to two different shoe stores, and was disappointed, but not surprised that neither of them had Brooks.
But I tried on a pair of Asics and I liked them.
I was delighted to see that they were a medium or normal width, and that they fit fine.
Not taking into consideration that I would be wearing my orthotics when I do buy a pair.
I wrote down the style and decided to check on zappos.
I found them, but I also found 8 more pairs I like even better haha.....
But I have narrowed it down to 2 pairs, neither of which is going to break the bank.
And no white. I love colorful shoes.
The lows of the day-----
A few days or so back, I had a dream that I was eating some kind of cake, and I asked what is this cake, and the person said, it is chocolate with cream cheese icing and cream cheese in the middle.
Ever since then I have had a hankering for anything with cream cheese.
But mostly my mind has been on a cream cheese danish or crossiant.
So, here is how this dream played into my day----
I had to drive to three different stores looking for the flea tablets for my dog.
Tractor store didnt have any for small dogs. Petco was way too expensive, and finally I found some at Walmart, although I would have prefered a different brand, it was all they had for dogs her weight---7lbs.
Then, going on noon, and having had no breakfast, I went thru the drivethru at McDonalds and got myself a 4pc chicken mcnugget kids meal, with fries, I thought they didnt come with fries???
Apparently they do, but I also got apples and a yogurt, so they must have just had someone working who didnt pay attention to what all they put in the bag, because I also got two toys, heheehe, Jackpot!!!
But, I was still hungry, probably the food itself intensified my hunger, and probably because I had yet to satisfy this craving for anything cream cheese related. I stopped at a store and got a chocolate milk, thinking that would be a healthier choice, get the chocolate craving and still get some vitamin and not so many calories, but of course, my feet and my brain led me straight to the snack cake display, where I found a cherry cheese danish!!!
Jackpot part 2!!!
Yes, I bought it and I ate it and washed it down with the chocolate milk, I was hunkered down in my car, parked at the far end of the parking lot in the hopes no one I knew would see me with cherry danish crumbs all over my chin!!!

I basically just undid everything I worked hard all week to avoid.
So, I am kinda beating myself up over it, but I am owning my misstep and not taking it any farther. The craving for the cream cheese has been fulfilled, I can move on now.
I was too tired for grocery shopping or anything more, so I came home and havent really done much more since I got home.
Have not seen any more fleas, KNOCK ON WOOD, neither on the dog or the floor.
I have vacuumed and mopped all rooms daily, and will continue to do so for the next few weeks.
Although all reading I do says some larvae or eggs can hatch months and months later.
But I am going to be keeping a close daily watch on her.
And that was basically my day.
I ate the wrong things, ate too much of it, didnt walk and now I am tired and am sure an early bedtime is in store for me tonight.

    I'm glad you were able to find a pair of shoes to your liking. When your feet feel good, it makes the day so much better. Good for you!

    Sounds good. I like Brooks shoes but I'm wearing Mizumo Wave Prophecies now. They're supposed to be good for my flat feet. I wanted Brooks Dyads but couldn't find them in my size at a price I was willing to pay.
