However, I was a bit perplexed that "Jelly Doughnuts" are not on the "approved" snacks list. Obviously, this must have been an oversight. I am certain this will be corrected in future print runs.
Then.. the topic of "Vita-bot" came up.
Me, on the other hand.... let's just say I have somewhat of a laizze-faire approach to Vita-bot.
I am not about to dwell upon each mouthful I take. I am not going to analyze the caloric count, the grams of fat, and the milligrams of sodium. I don't partake of fast food, convenience food, candy bars, chips, and so on. I eat a lot of fruits, veggies, whole grains, low salt foods.
I know that on Easter, we will have ham. Therefore, I realize I will have to watch the sodium content of foods now, knowing what is in store on Sunday. I also know the potential to have larger than normal quantities of eggs present exists. So, guess what? I am watching fat and cholesterol content now.
But... micro-analyzing and recording everything?
Besides, to my way of thinking, anything with "bot" as part of it's name just isn't natural.

No, I am not another year older.
I would not recommend, nor even remotely suggest this as an effective weight loss program.
Now, back to semi-reality... more disciplined eating, starting to exercise (I know, I know... ease back into it.) and on we go.
Oh, I do want to thank the good people at Cabana's for being a much-welcomed, much anticipated bright spot in the midst of this program.

"How does one trash weeks of discipline, diet, and sensible living?" you anxiously ask.
Obtain a good case of double pneumonia.
However, following a trip to my very capable physician, Dr. Ciotti, a few prescriptions, and rest; I no longer feel as if I was hit by a freight train. I now feel as if I had been hit by a bus. I guess that is an improvement.
Today pneumonia... next week... the weight loss!!

Does anyone else have this issue?
All week long, you are doing great; eating the right things, walking, exercising, working out?
Then, Friday comes along.
Devious, sneaky, subversive Friday.
WHY does the Vend-O-Lard machine always seem to win on Friday??
That brown sugar/cinnamon Pop-Tart (un toasted, BTW) was NOT all that great. In fact, it was reminiscent of cinnamon flavored cardboard. Assuming one ever had such a dietary delight. Plus, it cost a buck! I could have just sprinkled some sugar from the coffee station on a sales report, and gotten the same effect. And that would have been FREE!!
WHY does every single one of my co-workers have to go out for lunch on Friday?? And, then bring 10 pound sacks of fast food wonders BACK to the office?? Oh the olfactory delights of grilled beef, hot, greasy fried potatoes. Or Chinese carry-out. Or a stromboli from the Italian place down the road... it is maddening!
And....WHY do people just happen to bring in Girl Scout Cookies, and cupcakes, and brownies, and muffins on Friday?? Why not carrots or broccoli?? Never mind, I answered my own question.
And....WHY must I be subjected to hearing everyone's dinner, restaurant, party, bar mitzvah, coronation, and World Championship Tiddly-Winks Party plans for the weekend ALL DAY LONG on Friday??
I seem to recall reading that a person may become "slightly cranky" at some point during the weight loss "journey". Lewis and Clark took a "journey", this is more like a forced march.
Do you have ANY idea how exciting it isn't to face a bowl of Cheerios Monday through Friday for breakfast?? I feel like I am trapped in a Groundhog Day of my own making.
Oh, Saturday is a real treat... scrambled egg whites with crushed Cheerios in them. Not really; no one would do such a thing. (Dear,you didn't read that part)
I think maybe, I just might be, approaching the "slightly cranky" point. Wanna make something out of it??
