ABBA Randomness

I'm sure that my office-mates think I do nothing but eat. But everything I eat is "healthy" or at least accounted for and I don't go over my daily intake. I start in the morning when I get to the office and have a banana, then I have my lean cuisine around 11:30, which straight into yogurt, fruit, gold fish, teddy grahams, maybe some cheese, and probably carrots. But, I can't help it...when I'm working out 60 minutes a day, I need to feed the beast.

I know it is really bad of me but I find this picture to be really pretty. It is an awful, awful thing but....

(If you don't know, this is an aerial view of the oil spill in the Gulf.)

I am so much more productive in the morning. By afternoon, I've accomplished pretty much everything that I can focus on and now I'm just counting the minutes down until I can leave. I know I should spread my work out over the whole of the day and stay busy for the whole time, but by this point in time everybody else is throwing stuff all over the place and I'm constantly getting interrupted which equals slow down of production.

I totally miss my carpool buddy when she is off on vacation and gallivanting around the desert...

Very Sad...

Study Suggests Processed Meat a Real Health Risk.

Portion Control

I met with my dietitian last Thursday and it seems that I have a small issue with portion control. (This didn't actually come as a shock to me since I've known that I'm a binge eater for many, many years.) In an effort to get a handle on this, the dietitian set a goal for me to plan and manage my intake.

Well, it took me a couple of days to get around to doing this. I mean, come on, I had to first have a Happy Hour, and well you don't want to put limits on that. Then I went to stay with friends and she had been working really hard to make cupcakes for me, and well, I couldn't turn that down. Then on Sunday, I went out to Scarborough Faire, and, well.....actually, I did pretty good out at the Faire, it was really too hot to eat much of anything, although I did have a grilled chicken sandwich to stave off the light-headedness.

So, yesterday, I made it a point to go to the grocery store and plan all my meals and snacks for the week. I came home and took my purchased snack foods (Teddy Grahams and Goldfish), snack sized Ziploc baggies, and a scale in front of the television and started weighing out individual serving size portions so that I would have to pay attention to how much I was actually eating rather than just plow through the whole 6 - 12 servings in a box.

At one point, I'm sitting there weighing and packaging and started feeling ever so slightly like a drug lord doling out my precious product.

I wonder what the street value is on Teddy Grahams.....
