Ummm, good

So, I joined What an awesome sight. What a way to document your every move. Literally.
I clicked on the counter probably every ten minutes to see how many calories I'd burned up until that very second. Neurotic? Why YESSSSSS. Like ya'll don't expect that from me now?
So what do I do? I ate five slice of pizza for dinner. Hey, at least I skipped the Pepsi, which is SO HARD TO DO. I am drinking water. And you know what...this pizza is yummerific. I am enjoying it immensely.
Speaking of immense, their website wanted me to lose 145 pounds, to which I snorted in delight and then slightly wet my pants. I moved the goals around so I am only losing know, because that is just so much better.
So why the five slices of pizza?
Well, first, it's thin crust. So thats really just two and a half slice in real pizza terms, right? Plus, I skipped the Pepsi so I could have more. I'm telling you, counting calories every minute makes a girl hungry!
Third, according to their site, I actually needed 800 more calories for the day. Who was I to argue? Actually, their site had me eating 2500 cals a day, and I lowered it to 2000. As of 6pm, I was only at 1200 cals for the day, so I decided it was pizza time! It's kind of cool to manipulate the numbers on the site. I really didn't need to eat 2500 calories per day, especially since I'm not a lumberjack or a linebacker. Office work does not exactly require tons of caloric output.

Anyway, I'm feeling very good about my pizza, simply because I knew I hadn't overdone my caloric intake throughout the day.
By the way, you should eat salsa. You can eat a ton of it and it almost adds up to nothing. 2 tablespoons is only 10 calories! 10
PUH-LEEZE, I can burn 10 calories walking to my bathroom. Salsa is now my new best friends, peeps.

Anyway, you know what my favorite food tends to be? I just adore breakfast. ADORE! So I decided, I should work with that. I don't need to have soup and a sandwich every day for lunch, or a Lean Cuisine meal. (although I do like those.) I really like breakfast sandwiches. But if you buy the ones that are pre-made by Jimmy Dean they are like 600 calories and terrible for you. So I decided to make my own. I bought turkey sausage instead of pork (I'm not Seventh Day Adventist, but I am just not crazy about pork products) and I have eggs. I think I have biscuits, but if not, I will just use bread, and make my own. It is not only cheaper, but healthier.
I wonder how many calories hash browns have? This girl loves potatoes of any kind!

I admire you for starting on a diet before Christmas. I am just not doing it until the new year. After the new year, I'll be with ya!

I actually started right at Halloween. Thanksgiving was torture, but I didn't stuff myself at all.
I'm not really considering it a diet, because I'm still eating foods I with half and half, pizza, and chips. I'm just trying to control my portion size better, and throw in some walking. It's working so far, but I have a long way to go.
Glad to see you back, Lara!
