6 MONTH HEALTHY EATING CHALLENGE

Image
In 2020 I intend to have none of the following things until July 1:

Pizza.
Pop (Example: Coke, Pepsi).
Sugary snacks.
Hard booze (wine is OK in moderation).
Beer.
Limited to 2 bags of chips a week.
No fast food like burgers or fries.
As well New Years Eve I'll be not drinking at all.











Basically stick to the veggie diet for 6 months. Coffee and Tea is OK of course - can't live without them. Only animal products I will be having are cheese, eggs and chicken when I can get them for cheep or free.

So today is going to be my last drunk for a some time, unless I forget or fall off the wagon.

CHRISTMAS, DRINKING AND CREDIT CARDS

Image
Well that's another Christmas in the bag. I had a good meal (or 2) and enjoyed watching horror films all day long. Being alone there was no interruption. There seemed to not be many people around the building Christmas day. I think most of them have some sort of family to be with or at least friends. I should have done my laundry as I'm sure the room would have been empty all day, but oh well. I also got drunk that night and enjoyed a lot of music with my headphones on after the movies. I've got most of a 40 left over for New Years Eve (5 days) - that is if I don't get into it again. There is a rather good sale on right now so I might end up getting into it and then picking up another bottle for New Years Eve. It's like $26 for a 26 after taxes so that would not be too much for me. But we will see. I'll have to make my mind up by Saturday (this being Thursday) as I can get a ride then and I don't want to spend the $8 for delivery (Yeah, willing to spend $26…

AND A CHEESE SAUCE STAIN

Image
Normally when I get something like cheese sauce on my shirt I soak it right away. Well I forgot to do that and it's now several days old. I'm rather hoping it comes out in the wash anyway. I've had very little not come out over the years, so I have high hopes for it. There was the one white shirt that got some kind of brown stuff on it and it will never come out - to this day I have no idea what it was either. I had to make a special trip to the Co-op to get the only laundry soap I know of that does not bother me. It's in a new package and I hope they did not change anything in the formula. There are just so many chemicals I can no longer tolerate. But we will see how it goes when I do the wash in a few days.

USING UP MY LEFTOVERS FROM CHRISTMAS DINNER

Image
Well the leftover ham and sprouts where tossed in a pot with some stewed tomatoes and some spice. There is enough for all of today and 1 feed tomorrow. I'm kind of glad I got the small ham. There was not much of a difference in price with the one twice the size but that would have been twice as much process meat. Processed meat always gives me issues, so keeping it to the small one was the best idea. I slightly overdid the spice however and it may be an issue tomorrow morning - but we will see. It was very tasty. The cabbage rolls did not live long enough to be used today.

6 MOVIES HORROR REVIEWED

Image
1 Holidays (3/5) Not bad. The ester bunny one I like them best. It's a set of short stories based on holidays across the year. It's obviously not the best done movie in history for effects, but it worked for me, giant rubber snake and all.
2 Horror Story (2/5) This would be a (4/5) if they had stuck to one language. the switching between Hindi (I think) and English was very hard to follow. I'm used to either reading the text or listening to the words. To switch between was annoying as hell. The story however was very good and although low budget it was well done.
3 The Exorcism of Emily Rose (5/5) What can I say, this was an amazing film with a mixed set of elements. Switching between the outside world (a trial) and the exorcism was accomplished smoothly and very well. The hint of danger to the lawyer and the priest was obvious and one other person was outright done away with by the evil (or so you are lead to believe).
 4 Malevolent (4/5) Another lower budget film that worke…

CHRISTMAS FOOD

Image
Well Christmas Eve was finished off with about 22 OZ of Cheap whisky.  Christmas day I munched on pickled beats and sweet mixed pickles.  Also on Christmas day I had garlic stuffed olives and cheese.  This was the main meal (2 plates of it). Cabbage rolls, sprouts, and ham with hot mustard on it. The night was finished off with a generous helping of Wiser's whisky.
Not shown are the cookies I was munching on for 3 days.
