Still..

Still doing good at the eating.

Breakfast every day which is new to me. I never used to eat breakfast. Need to rev up that metabolism engine.

Breakfast has been either a wheat muffin with jelly (ok on day I tried butter!).. or a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. The muffin makes me hungry earlier for lunch.. the cereal seems to fill me up good.

Lunch has been the same ole. Actually it has been better this week since I have been working the late shift in order to watch the kids for vacation. I ate my pasta w/ turkey which I hated.. then had that again last night. It was better after the sauce sat on it for a day.. I also put some corn on top. I also had my chicken and rice meal which was tasty!

One thing I need to watch is portion size... I mean I cooked up a box of rice and pasta and stuff and then I like slop a whole bunch on a plate since it's a serving size.. lol. I need to finish my hackers handbook to dieting!!

Dinner has changed from TV dinners to my cooked meals. I notice I tend to snack at dinner... I mean the girl scout cookies just came, and the kids got Hershey kisses for valentines.. and then they bought some chips.. ug.. and the popcorn! It calls to me but I have not succumbed to its heavenly allure yet. Actually popcorn in an air cooker without butter would be fairly healthy right?

Cokes have been down to one a day still. I even try and savor my one coke a day.. taking a few sips instead of chugging it.. so I can have the coke goodness all through the day... mmm...

Sooooo that is how it goes. Still feel like my motivation is shot. I need to refocus myself. It is really hard when all the thoughts shooting through my head all day are of damnation and doom and nothing I can do will fix things, and other bad thoughts... It is really hard to be motivated when you are pretty sure whatever you do is going to be worthless in the end.... peace.

Yea, if you have to snack popcorn sans butter is a lot better than most choice. As for breakfast try some oatmeal with a touch sugar free syrup and no sugar added aplesauce. It ain't bad

You are doing really well. The idea is to limit portions, change your diet and lifestyle and limit or cut out some things. You're doing all that and doing it well. Enjoy the food you eat. Just don't eat a ton.

Don't know why people hate oatmeal, I loved it even as a kid. Of course eating it plain it is basically taste less but some butter, syrup and applesauce and/or blueberries in season always made it damned good to me. Of course in your case the butter is a no-no and you want to avoid the excess sugar so sugar free or no sugar added are the way to go.

I'm going to come out and say that I hate oatmeal as well.
I have always hated it no matter what people have done to it to try and make it more appealing to me.

You can put sugar on a turd, but it's still a fucking turd and it still tastes like shit.

I thought about giving it another go now that it's been well over a decade since the last time I tried it and threw the rest of the box out, but just watching my old man eat it makes me realize he must hate life to start his day with that senior citizen mush. Ugh

grouchie, maybe you should try it. Sounds like you could use some extra fiber in your diet
