This music is corny but it is a weird motivator. I will log on the blog and let it play for a bit as I do this and that when I am feeling my binging beast gnaw at me. There are actually 3 Rocky songs on there! LOL!

I woke up at 8:30 AM (I had stayed up watching 2 episodes of Sparticus until 2 AM) somehow I am more energetic and ready to wake up earlier, though.

Surfed the net with my coffee. Thankful for the blog success stories. Commenting and working on finding the right network of support.

Nobody was really in the mood for a breakfast together. The son in law went to school. It was his first day behind the wheel of a big rig at his Truck Driving Training school.

My daughter awoke after me and said she didn't want a big breakfast. I got sort of off the norm on this to satisfy my Junkfood junkie syndrome. My mind on those left over dinner rolls. Rhodes Gourmet White Dinner Rolls to be specific. The kind that comes frozen and you need to put them out to rise. I was really good at dinner time last night not partaking in those and the choice they had of Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream or Death By Chocolate Ice Cream option they had for dessert last night.

Ice cream ICE SCREAM we all scream for ICE CREAM! My second pregnancy in 1988 the last stretch! I had a run in with gourmet ice cream at discounted prices! Lucky Food Stores had their own gourmet flavors and 2 favorites "Peanut Butter Cup" and "Mocha Almond Fudge".

Using an online calorie logger too lazy to edit that creamer for breakfast is my usual 2 cups with homemade creamer which is always 100 calories.

EXERCISE routine (passive beginner movie motivated)
Turned on NetFlix did
15 scrunchees
10 squats
10 leg things in 3 different positions.
15 waist swivels
Rode the exercise bike 15 mins

We had some drama going on with a sick puppy. I was taking care of it and I did some emotional feeding on the ice cream. 
Since I started this diet after grocery shopping already, I have to use what I have in the fridge. I am going to try to get everyone involved in healthier foods and we are starting a garden come payday.

I want to keep it interesting and make my meals healthy and appealing to the eye on a plate and eat it slowly. I am going to dump the creamer and accustom myself to black coffee...uhhh maybe. It is hazelnut...What I need to do is modify the recipe (my daughter makes the batches) and just sneak toranni and a spoon of dry creamer...

This journaling and the fact that I know I am blogging  what I eat, I really can prevent the times I eat whole bags of nachos with velveeta and salsa dip or cut into a NY cheese cake and eat a quarter pie slice. And with that ice cream problem, I could eat half of the box and then hit the rest for breakfast as I did my last two months pregnant in 1988!!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. i understand the grocery predicament, eating healthy is twice as expensive as junk, but try to look at it as an investment in your health! it's been a struggle for me to but honestly i had to do bring repetative meals until i switched over to a eating to live mode and stopped living to eat.

  2. I still check out the ice cream section now and then. I promised myself that when they brought back Wavy Gravy I would buy one. I know Ben and Jerry are not going to do this, so feel pretty confident about it. Re coffee creamer, I used to use cream or 1/2 & 1/2; then switched to fat-free 1/2 & 1/2; then just said the heck with it and didn't buy anymore. It's painful at first; easy now. But I am not giving up coffee!

  3. Marilee,The day before my diet blog was Ben and Jerry's free day. I found this out at 10 at night, but still the closest Ben and Jerry's is 4 hours away. lol
    Eat to Live will be my mantra. Thanks Tim!
