Too big for my britches


Luckily, I don't need a moo-moo and Fat Guy Hat.

The Cleansing has begun. Last night I consumed the last of the waffle kooken (thanks, Shamrock & Amanda!) and then went to the grocery store. White flour? Gone. Refined sugar? I'm done with it. Caffeine? Not any more. I stocked up on salad stuff, whole wheat pasta and tortilla wraps, and plenty of chicken and turkey. I even reverted back to - ugh - natural peanut butter. And I'm also going to resume going to the gym - I've missed gawking at the sweaty women. I have a feeling that they missed me, too.

Well, the above isn't 100%. I'll continue to treat myself to my weekend coffees (and I still have some Pumpkin Spice creamer that'd be a shame to waste). And this weekend I'm planning on trying out that creme brulee kit that my brother got me for Christmas (and I don't think Splenda would work well). But it's a start.

Oh they missed you for sure. Good luck with your diet. It will be tough to stay on it once you take a bite of that creme brulee.

go to those theaters and demand their respect. they cannot steal your dignity, no matter how many seats you need, fatbutt!

anon - Thanks. The creme brulee won't become a regular thing. At least it looks too damn hard to make regularly.

spydrz - Hey, you chose not to move the Sweeties (where I got package #2).

jasdye - "Hey, fatty! I got a movie for ya - 'A Fridge Too Far'!"

Micah said...

Not anymore.

Minor setback: My great aunt dropped off a batch of no-bake cookies she made for me. It's be just plain rude if I refused them.

I'd trade you a food dehydrator for a creme brulee kit, but I promised all my friends jerky, and I'm even being loaned some venison.

It's just as well. I already have a food dehydrator and don't need two. I've been known to make some mean jerky (not venison, though). I wonder what dried lasagna would taste like...
