…and Losing a Battle

Posted on Oct 11, 2010
...and Losing a Battle This is a follow-up to “Winning the Battle…”  Since working in an office and gaining more weight than I thought I ever could,  my self-esteem has hardly been up to par.  Whereas I used to model, I now am ashamed to let anyone take a picture of me.  I rarely wear makeup anymore, I reverted back to wearing glasses all the time, and it’s a miracle if I get out of pajamas....

Daily Recipe: Healthy No Bake Cheesecake

Posted on Oct 09, 2010
Daily Recipe: Healthy No Bake Cheesecake This just sounds too good not to share.  Even dieters need dessert that’s not fruit every once in awhile!  I think I’m going to whip up a couple of these but try to find some low-fat graham cracker pie crusts to use instead of actual graham crackers.  Would you like a slice? Ingredients Low Fat Graham Crackers 8 oz. fat free cream cheese (softened) 1 cup cold skim milk 2 Tblsp....

Winning the Battle….

Posted on Oct 09, 2010
Winning the Battle.... Last night was my awesome sister Tori’s birthday, so my family gathered together to have a joint birthday dinner for both of us.  Where did we end up going but Mama Mia’s, the place I’ve mentioned before, home of the CALZONES AS BIG AS YOUR FOREARM.  I’ve had trouble in the past at this restaurant, going in with the intention of ordering their delicious La Grande salad,...

Daily Recipe: Pumpkin Pasta Bake

Posted on Oct 07, 2010
Daily Recipe: Pumpkin Pasta Bake As promised, here is my version of the recipe for Pumpkin Pasta Bake, which I mentioned and made yesterday. As I stated in my last blog, this was a mindfreak for my mouth. The ricotta, pasta, and mozzarella tricked my brain into thinking I was eating Italian, the curry made it feel like an Indian dish, the pumpkin was reminiscent of Thanksgiving, and throwing it all in a casserole dish made it...

Biggest Loser: Week Three

Posted on Oct 07, 2010
Biggest Loser: Week Three I cannot begin to describe the dread that fills my stomach on Wednesdays, about fifteen minutes before it’s time to weigh in for The Biggest Loser.  There’s always the nagging thoughts that tell me that I don’t feel any differently, that my pants don’t seem to be fitting better, that I’m not trying hard enough…and then there’s the thoughts that all the...

Daily Recipe: Healthy “Killer Potato”

Posted on Oct 06, 2010
Daily Recipe: Healthy "Killer Potato" I don’t know if non-Southerners have heard of such a delicacy as the “killer potato”, but basically, it is a baked potato loaded with barbecued pork, bacon, butter, sour cream, and cheese.  They are most delicious and probably heart attack-inducing.  So, today I managed to come up with one that was just as delicious but not so bad for you. I use a couple of brand names,...

My Birthday Wishlist

Posted on Oct 06, 2010
My Birthday Wishlist It’s almost that time of year again, time where I get another year older, another year closer to thirty.  This October 22, I will be hitting the big 2-7.  Now, maybe I’d feel better about that if my diet was going better, but despite all my efforts, I’m still not seeing much change. I’m still crossing my fingers that it will improve once my special friend has gone away....

The Biggest Loser: Week Two

Posted on Oct 01, 2010
The Biggest Loser: Week Two It was maddening on Wednesday, waiting until it was going to be time to step up on the scale for my second Biggest Loser weigh-in–and first progress weigh-in.  I thought that 6:00 was never going to get here.  I didn’t feel any lighter. My jeans weren’t fitting any better.  What if I had gained weight? What if all this eating and blogging and food journaling was for...

Eating Right vs Eating Out: Can They Go Together?

Posted on Sep 28, 2010
Eating Right vs Eating Out: Can They Go Together? After last night’s round of Bottle Ball, everyone decided to trek on over to Don Lolo, our local (and not very good) Mexican eatery.  As a general rule, I stay away from Don Lolo.  Like I said, it’s not very good.  It’s overpriced, rarely has good service, and the food is ehh at best.  Now when the other Mexican restaurant was in town, I had a much harder time saying no....
