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.

Crazy Thursday

It just seemed that work took forEVER today. Some days are way longer than others. Today was one of them. It didn't help that I woke up nine minutes before I was to start work. Luckily my commute is across the hallway into my office. Unfortunately it meant breakfast on the run, which consisted of a banana and a cup of coffee. Not good.

Lunchtime came and I was STARVING. So I made a chicken sandwich with a Burger First bun, a half an avocado and a slice of cheese. These buns are to die for, seriously.

Two days in a row taking a pic of snack! That's a record I think!!

I had yogurt, granola, choco chips and almonds. But then it wasn't filling enough, so I grabbed a piece of bison pepperoni. Which I forgot to take a pic of. Damn.

I've been craving pasta, so for dinner I did a whole wheat rotini casserole with roasted turkey thigh, celery, onions, and yellow peppers. For a "sauce" I opened up three packets of pesto mix, mixed them with water, and stirred it into the cooked ingredients. Then I dumped the works into a roasting pan, and baked it for 40 minutes. So delicious, and light! No heavy sauce. No oily pesto. All the flavour, a fraction of the calories.

Later I'm going to have a vitamuffin, and that will put me in the green for the day (my fibre was red without it). Total calories for the day: 1669

For workout today I did some step aerobics, went for a run, and went for a walk. May walk or run later... not sure yet. May not. I certainly don't need to, since I'm in the green. Woot!

your food always looks so yummy. Were do you get pesto mix? I LLLLOVE Pesto but always seem to find the thicker sauces that are way bad.

Becca: I find envelopes in the grocery stores! They say to add oil, but I use water instead.

Krista: Email me a date and let's make that happen. I'm so in!
