From boring to absolutely crazy!

So, I had one boring day and then yesterday was a doozy!  Nothing went the way I had planned, so I just had to roll with it!

Case in point.  The tags on our car were set to expire in May.  As a major procrastinator ( even worse than usual, lately), I hadn't gotten the tags renewed.  In case you forgot, yesterday was the last day of May.  In the past I have done the online renewal ( no standing/waiting in line.... YES!), so I go get the car inspected, gather up the necessary documents ( insurance, tax receipts), and the site doesn't recognize my tax receipt info.  CRAP!  So, I have to go to the dmv, ON THE LAST DAY OF THE MONTH - AAAGGGGHHHH!  I get there and pull the little number thingy - 18.  Thinking this isn't too bad.  They call the next number - "Three".  GREAT!  Actually, it didn't take as long as I thought it would.  I was out of there in a hour.  BUT, that is an hour that I needed to get everything ready to go today.....

So, my day was full of those kinds of moments.  A definite PLAN B day!  I was meeting myself coming and going, so crazy!

The other day I tweeted that my Dyson vacuum had lost suction.  We've had it for probably about 5 years ( not really sure....) and I figured it was just done...  I got a tweet back from them and they asked me to email the customer support department and told me it was probably an easy fix.  We set up a time to talk on the phone.  They can listen to it and figure out what is wrong and tell you how to fix it.  I was a bit leery, but figured why not give it a try.  So Tiffany called me yesterday and after about 20 minutes, MY DYSON WAS FIXED!  She had me take a few things off and was so helpful and very patient with me ;)

Madelyn came by for a swim (before it got cold), she is getting braver and really enjoying the pool this year.
However, she has one major thing - the pool cleaner can NOT be in the pool.   Evidently it is just TOO SCARY.  If it is in the pool and comes toward her she will start crying and head for the stairs to get out.  Even if it sits on the side of the pool, she will not go near it.

I guess it is a little scary.... probably doesn't help that we have always called it the monster....  We're trying to come up with a better name.  Any suggestions?

Eating has been good, I've stuck with the plan and getting results.  Only 3 more days to go!  I'll be done on Sunday.  It is going to be a challenge since I will be traveling, but I will stick with it to the end.  

I have to say, I have enjoyed almost all the meals.  There have only been 2 that I didn't care for.  They weren't horrible, just not ones I will be repeating!  The roasted fennel from last night is one of them.  I had not had fennel before and I am not a fan of licorice and it had that taste to it.  I ate it, but won't be making it again!

My eats the last couple of days

I had shakeology for breakfast both days.  Seems to keep me feeling fuller.

Had to eat out on Wed night.  I did good!

jicama/avocado salad  (YUM!!!) and baked sweet potato ( I shared my salad with Brian and had only made one serving, so we both added the sweet potato!)

Roasted fennel, asparagus, broccoli and brown rice

3 more days of the meal plan and the supplements.  I will be doing my favorite recipes from the meal plan for the next week before I start adding foods back in.  I will also be continuing with my GREEN drink every day!  Next post will be from the road!
