Mission Statement

I will in general eat healthy, eat "normal" food, without gimmicks, pills, surgery, or trademarked diets. I will log all calories consumed and estimate calories burned on a daily basis. I will then be able to track my progress and estimate arrival time to my goals through My Food Log. I will also develop non-food rewards for reaching my goals knowing that reaching each goal is a reward in-and-of itself. I will not give up. I know that I will not be perfect but that I am making a permanent lifestyle change. The good days will out-number the bad days. I will not give up!


Blew It So Bad Today

I've been on a roll with green days this week. See My Food Log for details. But tonight was the office party. I work in a small office and we recently won a runner-up prize in a sales competition. The prize was a gift card with which to throw an office party. Since there are only 3 of us, we decided to go to dinner and take our husbands. I would have done OK were it not for the... and I'm NOT kidding... DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE. It's a really good thing that I have done so well this week. Otherwise I'd would have gained this week instead of lost. And then there's the upcoming weekend. This will be a challenge. Weekends tend to be my worst times. I'm off to a great start.... here goes.

Holy crap, I had no idea there was such thing as Deep Fried Cheesecake.

I did not need to know this.

How Evil could one dessert be? Who needs to deep fry cheeesecake, it's already just sugar and fat!

Damn, I bet it tastes really good, too.

Crabby, I'm really upset with myself over this one. I did much better Sunday. The dessert wasn't even that good. That's what's so irritating. The warm cheesecake part was good, but frying it, ice cream, and whipped cream didn't add to the flavor... just the calories. I could have saved 400 calories without those extras. Oh well. This week WILL BE GOOD!
