It has been a tough weekend for me. It started out pretty good on Friday with dinner and drinks and great music with friends…then it all went down hill from there.
I think it was my own fault of course for being to trusting and doubting myself and my instincts. I usually have pretty good instincts when it comes to people, but trusting someone is a whole other ball game. It takes a lot, for me to trust someone, so yes I fall even harder when that person does not live up to expectations. Either way I survived the weekend…barely.
Here is to a better week, even though its the start of a work week. Anything to get my mind off of my worrying. And I am a professional Worry Wart let me tell you. LOL I will be relieved to go home at the end of the month for my mommy to take care of me. Everyone needs taking care of every now and again.
An update on my exercising and eating healthy, I am happy to announce I am down 10 pounds! Woohoo…Now you have to understand I am a very petite person so losing 10 pounds for me is like a big person losing 30 pounds. I am taking all the weight loss that comes my way. I am 4 pounds away from my weight loss goal. Fingers and toes crossed that it happens before my trip.
What is one of the first things I eat when I touch down in Trinidad? Doubles! It is the best street food ever! Doubles is a vegetarian street food that is sold in small shed’s and carts alongside the streets. Trinidad is known for it Doubles and its Carnival.
It is curried channa (chickpea), smothered between two fried breads called bara and served with a spicy mix of cucumber, tamarind or mango chutney. Delicious.
This is one of the things that I miss most of all from home, its waking up any morning and being able to grab a doubles as breakfast, lunch or dinner! What a great hangover food. It washes down nicely with a cold Solo Apple Jay. Cannot wait for it.
In the mean time I have to make it on my own. Check out Doubles with the Condiments.
