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.

Some call it food... I call it ART!!!

I was chatting with Randie today (*waves at Randie*), and I realized that what I am doing today is implementing my favourite tool (they are all my favourite, so don't get too excited). It's called "Just for Today". I've fessed up to my crap eating, so you know I've not been fantastic for days on end. So JFT I am eating nothing but good healthy food with no chocolate bars, and nothing that isn't planned and accounted for.

Just For Today means I don't have to worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. I just have to get through today, fighting my sugar cravings. Just For Today. That's it! So far so good, actually.

For breakfast this morning I had a 1/4 cup egg white and fresh chives out of the garden omelette on a half whole grain bagel with 10grams of fat free cream cheese and a bloop of Frank's hot sauce.

That's so beautiful... let's have a closer look!

Then check out this lunchtime beauty!! That there is a pork loin sandwich with avocado, tomato, spinach and brown seedy mustard on squirrely bread, with a 100 grams of carrots. Boo Yeah!!

Snack... ah snack! I love snack. Especially when it's strawberries, grapes, fat free plain yogurt, a tablespoon of toasted almonds and a tablespoon of dark chocolate chips. What's not to love??

Okay, dinner isn't so artsy to the eye. Kinda looks like barf. But tasty! What you see here is a plate of vegetablicious spaghetti! Instead of pasta, I used spaghetti squash. Normally I put the sauce on top, but today I mixed it in. Not nearly as visually appealing. Note to self: squash soaks up sauce and disappears.

The sauce is stupid simple. A can of crushed tomatoes. A couple chopped mushrooms. A few chopped fresh green beans. A leftover pork chop from last night, minced. A handful of spinach. Top that bad boy off with some shredded asiago. YUM!! I love how fresh this sauce tastes. You cannot make me go back to canned sauces.

As far as working out, I did a circuit training / step aerobic thing for 45 minutes this afternoon, and have a session with Michelle planned for this evening. The only thing is, I have about 700 calories left in my day because of all my healthy eating!! Hmm... do you see a glass of wine in my future? I think I do!

Thanks for listening,

Becca, share! I have polenta but have NO idea what to do with it!

I've read that you eat it like mashed potatoes?


Saw you on another blogger's site and loved your comments. I am going to adopt JFT for myself. Thank you so much!
