I just don't know where this year has gone!
In just a few weeks Thanksgiving will be upon us!
It's never too late to prepare for the annual feasting!
I saw this in a 'signature' today at another website and thought it was cute:
"Women are Angels.
When someone breaks our wings
we simply continue to fly on a broomstick....
We're flexible like that."
Thomas's makes Bagels, Bagel Thins and the Mini Bagel! I've tried them all and I must say, I am very impressed with the Mini Bagel! All the chewy without all the calories!
I tried the Bagel Thins (think flat bagel with the middle removed) and they are good with a smear of peanut butter.
But the Mini Bagel also uses less peanut butter but you get the chewy goodness from a regular bagel with less than half the calories. I was surprised when I felt no need to get another!
**the bagel thin should work great in a toaster. the mini bagel would probably have to be tipped out after toasting.
*** I didn't notice until this morning - you get 8 bagel thins but 12 mini bagels. Just FYI.
The difference in guesstimates vs estimates...
Today's rude awakening affected my Sunday calories.
I guesstimated that my Coconut Custard Pie slice was 190, eating 1/6th of the pie.
The true estimate was 518. I say estimate because when slicing cake or pie, there is no such thing as accuracy. Not in my world. Estimated calories.
The difference is +328 calories, partly because a serving was not 1/6th but 1/10th of the pie. This means I ate 1.67 portions of very good Marie Callender's Coconut Custard Pie.
Was it worth it? Yes. Will I do it again? Hmmmm - not right away.
Life continues to go on. But when the scale reads higher than expected, sometimes there is a really good reason for it!
Keep on Sparking good buddies!
Did I say the pie was worth it? Yummmmmmmm.
When I was doing my article reading (gotta get those spark points!), I happened to notice there is a series called SparkPeople's Mind Over Body series, a 10-step program to ending emotional eating and creating a permanent healthy lifestyle.
I followed the link to make it available to those in need.
We can do this! We can make this happen by doing this together!
