Day Nine

Haven't been to yoga in a week so I went today and I really have missed it. I have decided that I need it more than just once a week. It soothed me, and that's a good thing since this is the time of year where I can slip into a depression like one slips on an iceslick after a snowstorm, breaking one's back and needing constant care and attention to be nursed back to health, not that that's ever happened to me, but, I could break, at any time.

But, the depression is at a minimum since I have Cabo to look forward to, which I'm really not looking quite forward to yet. Not until I go out and find that gut-sucking-boob-lifting-shoulder-smoothing-back-fat-disguising-one-hundred-plus-dollar bathing suit that I know is just out there waiting for me.

I may actually purchase a bathing suit that will cost more than all the handbags I possess totalled. I want to sit in a room and have a personal expert shopper bring me suits that she knows will work with my body, while I sit there sipping on some iced tea, waiting ever-so-patiently.

Wouldn't that be nice?

In the meantime, I'm not calling it a diet anymore since I am not having any cravings or desires to knock off a Krispy Kreme or a Domino's. It's really easy. Just write down the stuff you eat. And plan accordingly. Like today, I knew I was going to Applebee's for dinner. I rationed out my points.

I had a yogurt and granola this a.m. for 3.5 points.
Popcorn
Nonfatcinnamondolcelatte, in which
I requested NO whip, but she accidentally put it on there.

"Is there whip cream on this?" I asked.
"Yes, didn't you want it?" she said.
"No, but keep it on. I'll considered it a gift," and it was.

I then had an apple
Applebee's WW onion soup and the Cobb Salad, which wasn't all that great, but it was veggies, and it was filling.

I'm going to have a mint Skinny Cow in a little while.

Boring, boring, boring... but hey, such is the Manic life I lead!

Applebees healthy food sucks =)

I cannot believe that the sheer quantity of caffeine you ingest hasn't totally and completely suppressed your appetite. BTW - it doesn't seem like you're eating much at all. You should be a supermodel by now. What gives?

I agree with Amie.....I'm not impressed with Applebee's WW food....it doens't have much taste to it. Bleh!

Dieting reminds me of a GREAT book from the 1980's or even 70's. The Dieter by Susan Sussman. Fabulous women's fiction. Check it out!

Kim...The Cinderella Pact is another great "diet" book by Sarah Strohmeyer.

BTW this is probably teh worst thing in the world (esp since I'm not supposed to eat bacon) but Quiznos Roadhouse Ranch salad ROCKS!!!!!!!
