Green Tea, Fish & Fish Oils

So this past week I have been eating some things I shouldn't have, and I have paid the price. Every time I go to the movies, it happens, I eat something I shouldn't eat, even if I ate so perfect for days, I get to the movies and the Nachos start calling my name, or the popcorn, or the ice cream dibs (little ice cream bites covered in chocolate). BIG SIGH.

It's that reasoning of "Well, I eat really healthy all the time a little bit of this won't hurt me...."

But inevitably it does hurt me.

On a good note I walk out of there feeling the effects and every time I feel those effects I reiterate to myself "That was a bad idea."

I'm hoping one day it sinks in permanently. But, in the meantime, I am doing my best.

This past week I have eaten fish every day (past 5 days). Not that I was trying to eat fish every day it just kind of happened. Also lots of veggies.

I started drinking more green tea, and that is good.

I also started taking Fish Oil Supplements.

I started this post on Tuesday at noon, it is now Wednesday at 8am. I'm barely getting to finish it to post it. Scattered thoughts, yesterday was the 2nd day of the Fall Semester here at the college, and we were so busy, that I had no time to write, or post for that matter.

I came in to work this morning and saw this waiting for me on my screen.

Oh well... Happy Wednesday! Time for my green tea!

Oh, and one more thing.... I decided this semester to take a class. I'm taking a ceramics class, and Monday night was my first day in class, and I made a pinch pot, although somewhat sad looking, I hope to glaze it and make it pretty. We will see. Tonight is the second night of class. I think I'm going to really love playing with clay. I love it so far!

Hi WebMistress ,

First, don't be so hard on yourself. Second, school/health/work comes first. We will be here to help you. :-)

Fish with vegetables and green tea sounds great to me. What is your favorite type of fish? I personally like tuna and salmon for the first two on my list.:-)

I like white fish of any kind best of all, but I am not picky. I love so many types. I love to eat Mackerel, which a lot of people don't like. If the fish is super stinky, I love that too.

Catfish - not such a big fan. Hahaha

P.S. I grew up fishing with my mom and dad and sister, and camping every weekend. My parents did deep sea fishing and we had three boats when I was a kid, we used to catch fish and sell to the fish markets, then I dated mostly asian guys and we always went fishing everywhere and caught fish and cooked it in all kinds of ways even over campfires, and I grew up with so much crab, and oysters, and fish and clams and so it's in my blood. I think in my past life I was Japanese. I'm pretty sure, because I am a buddhist, studying under Japanese Buddhism, and I love rice (which I cut out of my diet) and fish and I love ramen, and I love all things Japanese. I was born in 1969, so I wasn't caught up in the Anime Craze of the 90's, but my kids were. I was just always into Asian everything, and yeah, so I have eaten so many types of fish.

One of my favorite "Fish" tasting experiences was the time I was over in Guam, and I was served a bowl of what looked like coconut milk, and I was told to taste the fish that was in it. I dipped in and pulled out these beautiful slivers of white meat and popped it into my mouth. It was the most delicious fish I had eaten in such a long time. Come to find out in the bowl was raw marlin, marinated in lemon juice, boonie peppers and coconut milk. It was the most exquisite fish I had ever tasted. It was like a juicy steak, so perfect. I ate the whole bowl.

I also do love sushi. All kinds.

I didn't put any sardines on my list, not because I don't like the flavors but because I don't eat them much, I don't like canned fish as much as fresh fish.

That’s okay!😀👍 Not everyone likes every type of fish.

Wow WebMistress

You are very knowledgeable about the varieties of fish out there!

I hope you're enjoying your Ceramics class, and it would be great to see how you glaze it - if you want to share that at the right time. We have new 'Hobbies' topics - of various kinds - and ceramic pottery sounds like a skilled hobby to develop.

Yay! Good, I plan to share them as they get finished. Just let me know where to post. :) Also, it is something I have always wanted to do. Finally doing stuff I love to do now that my daughters are adults. When they were kids I couldn't really justify spending money on myself.

Hi WebMistress

Just look down the list of Topics, and you can find the one that fits whatever you want to post. I know there are a few different ones.

I love ceramics though could never get on with the potters wheel. I much preferred coiling and of course experimenting with glaze.

I know what you mean about cinema and eating, I used to be pac-man as soon as I went in through the door, first sit down to a triple scoop of Ben & Jerrys then a bag of pick and mix sweets and popcorn to take into the theatre. Now I either eat a substantial healthy meal before I go or I have a snack before I go into the cinema then all that is left is to buy a giant Diet Coke to drink whilst watching the film.🥴

I love your suggestion! We have a starbucks in our theater, and sadly they don't serve up any healthy coffees, they're all the sugary ones. I can't even get an iced green tea. They serve sodas, and candy and all kinds of foods but nothing diabetic-friendly. I am going to submit to Cinemark that they need to start carrying foods for people who don't want to eat junk foods or have sugars. But, I do get a large bottle of water (they charge almost $5 for a bottle of water),..... sad sad sad. But, I can "sneak" in a bottle of water and some salt & vinegar (dry) chicken wings or some nuts, cut veggies or something.

We diabetics just ain’t fashionable 😩 but I bet it won’t be long before cinemas jump on the bandwagon and sell vegan snacks.

Hey WebMistress don't beat yourself up as you've done really well and it's life to fancy these treats and then wonder why.

I look forward to seeing your glazed pot it sounds fun to me as I think things would soon go wobbly for me on the potters wheel...😁

Yeah, we have gigantic kilns and small kilns here in our Ceramics class. We have 9 large kilns and 4 small kilns. And different kilns for different steps in the glazing process. I'm learning so much and I love it! I'll show you a link to who my teacher is.

I've done that before, don't beat yourself up about it. We All have our weaknesses. Maybe next time sneak some healthy snacks in? The young people that run the theater don't care.

That's what we do! They don't sell anything even remotely heathy, so I don't feel bad, either. If they wanted our business they'd sell good snacks along with the junk.

Or, use the time for a bit of extended no-snack fasting. It's a good way to enforce it!
