*shakes fist at sky* curse you, snow!!

Thursday, January 08, 2009

came up 10 minutes short of two hours for the day.

thanks to ms. lobrennan for coming to my town on animal crossing and bringing me coconuts!!
that was seriously the highlight of my entire day.

well it went from freezing rain for about 8 hours yesterday to snowing again. we are right on track for the heaviest snow fall in record. i cant shovel today, and i told r. i am so sore, and chapped in places i didnt know i have.

nephews are coming over tomorrow. making "pizza roll ups" which is lasagna noodles rolled up with the fake beef in it, sauce, mushrooms, and crushed red pepper.
i was gonna make chili, go healthy with the beans, but bird doesnt like chili.

had dinner kinda ready--chicken was defrosting and my baked potato was in the oven, and r. imed me and said he was hungry, wanted to know if dinner could be ready as soon as he walked in. i said soon after, probably. he decided to pick up pizza.
i had my calzone, and a house salad, and 3 garlic knots.
this is like an every other week thing, so i dont get too worried. a calzone is definitely part of my life that i will not budge on.
i gave up the pizza, will NOT give up a calzone.

so, my problem? even though by the end of the calzone, i am getting sick from the ricotta, i keep eating.
now, i dont save my food for later. i cant do that.
if i save something that i dont normally have, i will never get back on track. so i eat as much as i want when i get it, and the next meal/snack i am right back on track.

my goal for this year is to give that last little bit to duncan pumpkin. no, its not good for him, but its even worse for me. this is something i can accomplish by the end of the year on a regular basis, and i will.
i dont ever want to feel this sick again.

and, also, i had my baked potato ready. why didnt i just eat that? oh, right.. i cant control myself when it comes to calzones.

im hoping to go shopping with my mom tomorrow. the weather isnt supposed to be good.
i hope i get to, though. i havent seen her, to talk to her, since before christmas when we were going shopping all the time.
i miss her.

    I want Animal Crossing!! Is it lots of fun?

    I don't think you should give up things, you already know that about me though. Good for you for eating what you want and I think its REALLY good to make the goal to give that last little bit up. Eating til you feel sick is a horrible feeling (speaking from experience).

    **hugs** I think you are doing great Dee!

    Hi Dee,

    Love your idea on the pizza roll ups. Actually, those wouldn't be too unhealthy especially with ground turkey and whole wheat lazagna. Chili is better though. Bird is crazy. :)

    I have a "cheat night" once a week. Every Friday night we go to our favorite Italian restaurant and I eat a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. I used to get pizza, but switched almost a year ago to the spaghetti as it wasn't as damaging to my diet. I have succeeded in losing 40 pounds and have very rarely missed a Friday. I think there is nothing wrong with your occasional calzones. It gives you something to look forward to while you are watching what you eat. The big trick is to get right back on plan with the next meal. I think you are doing a great job of that.

    As for Duncan, he will love your new plan.

    Calzones sound so yummy. I can't blame you for wanting ALL of it. It's a good thing I don't know any places that serve Calzones here!

    Hope the weather cooperates for you today!

    I used to love calzones. calzones with pepperoni. But, the last few times I had the calzones, the calzones did not agree with me. So, I have given up calzones. But, I haven't given up pizza. Have you tried maybe cutting the calzone in half and wrapping the rest in foil and putting in the freezer for another time? I try that with foods that I like to order in, and it is starting to work (meaning I am ok with putting some away).

    I hope the snow/freezing rain many times should you be shoveling?!

    Have a HAPPY FRIDAY!

    I think your storm is going to hit here tomorrow. We're having a record snow fall this year. I'm a big fan of snow, can't say I like driving in it...however, I'm into snowmobiling & cross country skiing.

    Have fun with the family!

    Calzone!! I am sorry it made you feel too full..maybe your stomach has totally shrunk? I love calzone, can't blame you one bit for wanting that. This is enough to make me get a calzone from our favorite calzone take out place. I think your feelings about having certain foods still be okay is wise. If everything becomes taboo, it's almost like being in food jail. emoticon

    I understand your thing for calzones. I think mine is Chipotle burritos or, in a pinch, meatball sandwiches. Not everyday things, but when I want to burn a bunch of calories on something tasty, that is what I go to. That's crazy about the weather! It's really cold here, but the cycle of freezing rain/sleet/snow seems to have slowed down for now....but it is the Midwest, so that can change any minute.
