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.

Oooo, Red. :(

Okay! So I seem to have lost ALL THE DAMN PICTURES I TOOK TODAY.

How the hell does that happen????

Oh, they are SOMEWHERE on my computer, but apparently I didn't double check that they were going into the file it ALWAYS downloads them to but decided today to be different. Harumph.

So I'll just tell you what I had, I guess. :(

Breakfast was oatmeal again, made with almond breeze, raisins and almonds. Oh, and a bit of banana. Milk and vitamins rounded it out.

Lunch was on the fly... a Burger First bun with a half avocado and a chicken breast. Delicious!

Snack was my current favourite. An apple, chopped into bits, then covered with 1/4 cup yoghurt, 1/2 cup omega-3 granola, and 2 T of dark chocolate chips.

Then I ate the last of the chips. I said it was the LAST. No more buying those for a while! These ones were Loaded Baked Potato. And they were divine. And they put me WAY over for my caloric budget today.

Dinner was a salad of mixed greens, pork loin and mushrooms served with garlic cheese bread, same as last nights pic.

I was saddened today to read that Ed McMahon died this morning. Definately the end of an era. I loved the Tonight Show when it was him and Johnny. They had awesome chemistry.

I watched Yes Man last night. Jim Carrey. It was good. And it made me sad for those that do say no to everything. I like to think of myself as a bit of a yesser.

In that vein, guess what I'm doing tomorrow? I'm going for a hike around Burnaby Lake! Or in Burnaby Park. I dunno. My friend offered and I said YES! Actually, I think my response was YES YES YES!! lol She's getting married in FOUR days, and I'm so stoked to spend time with her and hear the good, bad and ugly of all her planning.

Well... now to decide if I'm going to do more excercise tonight. I'm feeling kinda lazy as I already went for a walk and a run today. But those damn chips....

I wouldn't feel so bad, but my deficit for the last two weeks is only 327... huh... that's not so bad! I'll see if I'm feeling it later. I REFUSE TO COMMIT!!! lol

I did a killer workout last night to make up for yesterday's chip discretion (balance is my friend), and I think I made Steve feel bad. He got down on the floor and did some sit ups and push ups when I was done... lol.

Hey, I got a question... Nutritional Yeast. Does anyone know if this would cause yeast infections in someone who's kinda sensitive to these things? I've googled but get conflicting info. Some say that it's not active yeast so no, but others say that despite being told that, when they HAD an infection they were told to stop taking it. So what is the case? Do you know?

No clue about nutritional yeast. I'd be terrified to touch it as I'm also sensitive to those things...

Love to read what other people are shoving in their gob!

Hi there chick... nice of you to pop over and visit. I see how.. GLAM! hee hee...
Hey you have done bloody well! Good on you. I DID well a while ago, struggling to get back there, but I will!

If there's a chance of getting thrush from that yeast I'd say LEAVE IT !

I loved Yes Man! So funny!

I don't know about nutritional yeast causing yeast issues. I have had used nutritional yeast a lot for my little daughter that had a milk protein allergy. It is used as a cheese-type replacement (i.e. mac and cheese) and is a good source of protein/vitamins. That's all I got for ya!

If you are sensitive, it is best to avoid. If you are looking to get it's nutritional benefits without the problems, a B 12 supplement will do your body better.
