If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Don'tcha Hate That??

When you go to make one dish and it turns into another?

I've been craving pasta lately, so I went out and bought some whole wheat spaghattini. Last time I had canned sauce, it left a lot to be desired. It was really yucky and processed tasting. Yes, I've turned into a food snob, I'll admit it. LOL

So I decided to make a sauce. Here's what I put in:

1 lb lean ground pork (cooked then rinsed)
1 can kidney beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 half can tomato paste
1 can mushrooms, drained
3 stalks celery
1 onion

Looks good, right? Yeah... except it's CHILI. I mean, sure I could serve it over sketti noodles, but come on... really??? grumble mumble stoopid chili grumble.

Okay, so here is today's nutrition:

Br: 1/3 cup oatmeal and 1/4 pom (vanilla and coconut extract added), milk & vitamins

Lu: spinach salad (2oz spinach, 1oz brocslaw, 2 tablespoons pom seeds, 1 tablespoon shredded romano, 1 tablespoon Mediterranian Balsamic Vinegrette, 1oz rutabaga, 2 oz ham)

Sn: 1/4 pom, 1/2 cup plain ff yoghurt, slice of blueberry flax seed bread (no butter), 1/4 cup prunes

Dn: Chili (pfffffft)

I did an hour on the treadmill. I've started doing this thing I read about it Women's Fitness. Instead of just walking, or just running, or even the walk run intervals from the Sun Run Training, I'm doing this thing where I walk for two minutes, then RUN LIKE FUCK for 30 seconds. Back to walk for two or more minutes then RUN LIKE FUCK for 40 seconds, then do it all over again. It raises my heartrate in bursts and is supposed to be better for weight loss. If anyone knows about this, throw me a comment... I could be completely off my rocker.

Thanks for listening,

Can I just tell you that more than once you had me laughing out loud at the things you say in your posts. Today was one of those days. You write like I talk & think and I can relate!

I am on a weight loss journey too and it's so nice to read about other people out there who are going through the same things. Thanks for sharing!

You are a RIOT Dee! Sounds good anyways, did you have it with pasta? Hey, have you tried the Brown Rice pasta? It's SOOOO good! I bought the organic one from Superstore, down the healthy food snob isle, in a brown and gold bag, we got the "Penne" which looks nothing like normal penne... it's not pointed or ridged, more like little plain tubes... but omigosh, SOOOO good! I love that it doesn't have that gritty feel, but it's a healthier option than white pasta! A MUST TRY!!!

Love all the commenting!!

I didn't serve it over pasta... I just had it as chili. And I ended up eating only half a serving, because it was SO filling (NSV for ME!).
