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.

Manic Monday

Well, it's the first day of Spring Break, and was I ever glad to get to sleep in a bit! This cold isn't brutal, but it's knocked me back a step or two, that's for sure. Once again, I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how greatful I am that I do not smoke. The difference in colds from then to now is immeasurable. If that's not incentive to quit, I don't know what is!

I must admit, I had an awesome day yesterday, despite spending the whole thing laying on the couch. I listened all day to the last three months worth of Jillian's podcasts. She's so awesome.

I had a bunch of pics from the last few days, but I decided fuck it... I don't have time to upload, sort and blurb for each of them. Suffice it to say that while I did not eat the most healthy options this weekend, I did stay within my caloric budget. And I'm good with that.

On Friday Logan used the last of the coloured gels in his hair, so I saved this pic just to complete the set. Unfortunately, green doesn't take as well to the uncoloured section of his hair like the red and blue did. I think the blue was my favourite.

Breakfast today was fresh cut pineapple (god, I love pineapple) with dry cottage cheese. Yep, you heard me right. Dry cottage cheese? Why? Because I goddamn MISS cottage cheese but with over 400 mg of sodium per 1/2 cup it's not worth it to me. But dry cottage cheese has like 15 mg of sodium. Ha! And it wasn't so bad at all, actually. I served it with a dry slice of Black Russian Rye bread (omg good) and milk & vitamins for a total of 442 calories.

Lunch this week will consist of Pita Pizzas. Oh yeah! Today's lovely creation had pizza sauce, pineapple, capers, tofu, mushrooms, spinach, caroway seeds, oregano, mozza & asiago cheeses. A delicious 352 calories! (when you consider what a pizzaria pizza costs you in calories... crazy!)

Snack was more pineapple, with fat free plain yogurt, flax pumpkin granola and chocolate chips. A sweet indulgence that came in at 230 calories.

Dinner tonight was cheeky. I was driving past 7-11 and they have a deal on right now for two hot dogs for 2.49. Well, I had been looking to use up some leftovers, and one of them is chili! So I stopped by Sev and picked up six hot dogs. I put cheese and onions on the boys' and left mine plain. A quarter cup of bison chili and a side salad of spinach with ranch and I'm a happy camper with my 672 calories. And boy were Steve and Logan impressed and happy, lol!!

Now, I'm about to head out for my workout with Michelle. I'm going to take it fairly easy. I don't want to blow my immunse system up right now. This cold could be gone in two days if I do this right. As it is right now I'm within my caloric budget, so a workout is gravy. (not literally. I'm not gonna eat a bowl of gravy.)
Tonight I'm having coffee with friends that are down from Kamloops. Very exciting! Except it's in Timmy's. Very dangerous! A pmsing woman should not be sitting in a donut shop. Maybe I'll go online and see if there is anything I can indulge in within my calorie budget.
Okay, that's about it.
OH! One more thing. I had a twofer. I picked up a pair of jeans for 1.94 on a clearance rack AND they are a size 8 that fits!!!! Woot!!!!
Thanks for listening,
