My hair has been frizzy lately, so I'll need to look into a product for that.

I still haven't been cooking much. To be honest, I'm worried that cooking a lot might be a trigger for me (to overeat), and I WILL NOT go into the 160s again!

Still wondering how to go about dating during COVID. I have so much fear regarding the dating world.

Today, I got a permanent crown cemented in, and it feels weird when I chew, and floss. I'm hoping things will settle down as I get used to the new crown.

My daily headaches are coming back. :( It's hard.

Next Thursday (the 29th) is when I might get my last GS promotion at work. I'm pretty sure I'll get it, but you never know.

I bought 3 Burt's Bees tinted lip balms recently, and I'm in love!!! I'm really into the sheer lip color look right now! Lipsticks are great, but can look harsh, and are drying (to me, anyway).

I haven't been giving my parents any money, but I've been bringing them snacks, and paper products (toilet paper, Swiffer refills, and paper towels). I see them about once a week.

Since I no longer eat dinner at my parents' apartment after work, I've been extremely exhausted making my own dinners, cleaning up, doing my physical therapy exercises, and preparing the next days' lunches before bed. I already have a horrible commute (typical for LA), and wake up at 4:30 am every morning. So, my solution (for now) is to meal plan in advance, and use paper plates and plastic utensils on days that I work (I know, not good for the environment, but I'm tired!). We'll see how it pans out.

Good news!! I finally got my registration, license plates with stickers, and title for my new car! :)

    I pray that your headaches don't get too bad emoticon . Meal prep does take time and practice, but once you get used to it, it becomes easier. emoticon emoticon Most people do their meal prepping for the week on Sunday. emoticon Good luck and stay safe!!! emoticon

    That is so interesting, when my friend Hillary moved back from LA (after her father has passed away and the house was sold) she confided in me that she was too busy working etc. to unpack her dishes and she ate off paper plates and used plastic cups too. I don't know why I think that's interesting, it's just coincidental.

    I would buy a book on how to preplan meals one day a week (people usually do this on Sunday) so you have all your meals ready to go for the week in proper portions. I should do this! I don't, although I do end up many times with more than one portion when I cook dinner and freeze the rest to pop in the microwave when needed. My best friend when I have a busy morning is overnight oats or a smoothie.

    I am sorry your headaches have returned. emoticon

    Hope you can get a handle on your headaches.
    If it's not a medical condition yoga may help.

    If the foods you're meal prepping are freezable that can really help with that urge to eat it all at once (aka the reason I can't have pasta...) I especially like storing soup that way because it also makes it easier to take to work when it's frozen!

    Wow, I think things still sound great for you. I know that headaches are horrible - I get them too. Do what you need to do to save time with your meals. Take good care of yourself. By the way, I do hope that you get the next promotion.
