Christy Got Her Groove Back

Ah yeah! I am spending Sunday doing food prep (rather than painting my interior doors) and am beginning to feel some peace settle in as I work away.  I had been feeling a bit panicky about not having any control, which, I know is an absolute cop-out and so not the truth.  I can do this, but it is going to take a bit more doing than I've done.
I am bagging frozen blueberries in 1 cup (70 calorie) portions and sticking them back in the freezer.
I have been struggling to get a plan around some protein in my diet.  After all of the chicken breasts, I guess I'm just not ready to go there yet and I haven't ever been real big on meat anyway.  After much thought about what sounds good and preps easily, I have settled on egg whites.  So I am hard-boiling eggs for the week.  I plan to bring three a day and I'll just toss the yolks when I eat them, Unless of coarse I'm starving and then I'll eat one.  3 egg whites (51 calories) 10.8 grams of protein! If I went for 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg I'd be getting 54 more calories and 2.6 more grams of protein.  Either way, fairly good way to get in my protein. Husband is watching his sodium and egg whites are kinda high for a food. He'll get 165mg from just the egg whites.  In the big scheme of things it isn't much, but I think it's interesting to see how much there is in food naturally, before the salt shaker.
Husband told me to MARK THE EGGS,  because of the one time he broke open a raw egg out of the wrong container from the fridge and REALLY, I haven't heard the end of it, lol. We were home at the time so I really don't see the big deal... it cleaned up quick. ;)  So I got them all marked...
I think it's the appropriate amount of time away from Easter, just close enough that the memory is still there, but far enough away that they actually might be Easter eggs.  Should anyone see them, he's gonna have to explain his wife's quirky sense of humor.  Who knows, next time he may even have a color request. :)  I think the teal is pretty.
Well, I've got lots to do today, so I'm off to clean up the kitchen, cook up some veggies, finish the laundry... Does anyone want to come paint my doors?
Oh, I updated my weight along the side... check it out! Down this week.  Last week I was paying for a bad food choices including two good sized Root Beer Freezes (that I somehow felt I deserved). I expect next week to be better now that my big toe is feeling better and I've got an action plan with action.
