That's how I feel about my "diet" right now. Yep, I decided it was time to seriously work on that extra 15 lbs I've been hefting around since the spring, especially given the fact that I can't fit into any of my school clothes. And I'm too cheap to go out any buy a whole new wardrobe because I've eaten my way out of my last one. Will I go out and splurge on some new "school clothes" anyway? Well heck yeah. But not because my azz is now the size of a watermelon. No, it will be because I wanted them, rather than had to have them.

So what have I been doing? Not enough exercise during the massive heatwave, but now that the weather is decent again, it's back out for my 4-mile walk, coupled with step-aerobics. But what I've been focusing on is my eating. Fruit for snacks, (and I hate fruit) lean cuisines and salads for lunch, and a reasonable dinner. Small portions at dinner. Last night I had a zesty chicken bowl from Taco Bell because Jen and I were at the mall, and I ate half of it. Life is good, no?

NO. I feel like crap. I have been craving chocolate ALL DAY LONG. And no, it's not a hormonal thing. What I wouldn't give for a box of Junior Mints. I physically feel ill . . . or is it well? Is my body rebeling from the sheer health factor of the foods I'm eating? Is this sugar/fat withdrawals? Cuz it's not pretty. Soon I'll be doing straight shots from the Redi-Whip sitting in my refrigerator for some good old-fashioned sugar. It won't be pretty, but C'MON! And a nectarine JUST WON'T DO!

I need help. Seriously. Is there a twelve-step program for junk food addiction? Hello, my name is Kay, and I have a chocolate addiction.

The flower pic is from yesterday. I haven't been taking enough pictures lately. Need to add it to my "TO DO" list.

Bill is out cavorting with Tiger Woods yet again at the Buick Open. I hope he doesn't scare Tiger away with his adoration (stalker-like qualities.)

Have a great Friday evening. I'm off to hit the Redi-Whip.

Kay throw that Redi Whip right in the trash. You will worse if you caved. I have been feeling kind of icky also. I am thinking it is due to the weather. Heat and high humidity. Although yesterday and today were not too bad. But it can really get you out of wack also. That is my story and I am sticking with it. Now instead of finding sugar go find that will power that all of seem to lose. You can do it and heck you look good. Love tha pic of the flower!!!

I so hear you! Just go buy new clothes. I did.

Plus, Redi-whip is not very fattening. Its mostly air. Sounds like you need a good old-fashioned brownie ala mode.
