A Diet Begins

Today I am starting a diet of sorts. Pretty much just getting rid of all the junk that I used to eat. Kinda like a detox diet. It is going to be high in fiber and protein, low in sugar and highly processed foods. Dinner tonight was the start of it. We had Pork roast, with and mashed potatoes and a salad. I know that this isn't the best of what I could eat but it is a start.
I guess my mother is going to be putting the household on a diet of foods without labels. She has made her last batch of cookies to have at home. That doesn't mean that she isn't going to be making cookies anymore. They just can't be in the house.
I am going to be trying to get my mother to switch over to using ground turkey over ground beef and have whole grain breads and cereals over what we have now. Hopefully I can get her to do that.
Soon I hope to start working out and actually doing some physical work. I just need to get some money to get a gym membership for a few months then I'll be set with that.
Pretty soon it will be "Hello new and improved slim Bridget!"


Summer wrap up

Well I am about to move again, this time to my parents in Chippewa Falls, WI. I have again nothing much to prove for living on my own, this summer, except for more debt and the knowledge to make jam and jelly.
This summer I did travel to Red Wing. I got to see a nice small town that has one of the best schools for string instrument repair in the nation. Only to then learn that it will cost more in the first two days of school then I was willing to pay as of now.
I learned how to make jam and can food. Noah, his little sister and I made raspberry jam. I guess it is more of a syrup when it is at room temp. It wasn't that hard to do. Noah wants to make pickles soon and I am going to help him with it.
My cat had been in kitty jail for a week (she is now living at my parents, and I'll be seeing her soon). While she was living at Noah's his roommate accidentally didn't close the backdoor and Kara decided that she wanted to make a break for it. She was then picked up and taken to the Humane Society. It turned out that her bail was going to be over $100.
Last night was my five year reunion at my high school. I
wasn't going to go to it, because nothing has really changed in my life. I have grown up a lot, but I have no job or money to prove for any of my growing. Maybe I'll go to my ten year class reunion. I am sure that by then enough has changed and I will be willing to make the trip to see the people that I graduated with again.



I think working at Boston Store is transforming me from a twenty something into a sixty some. Over the course of a few days my legs, back and arms have aged 40 years. I will be so happy when I can stop working retail and start working a 'big-kid' job. When I lay down to rest my back my knee starts to hurt big time so I sit up making my back hurt. My arms are a totally different story, they are affected by changes in pressure and temperature. So pretty much I just needs to not live in Wisconsin anymore and move to a state that doesn't have the drastic changes in temperature in a year, going from -20 to 90 some. Gross.
