I love this infographic posted at Work For It, and just had to share. This is the “big secret” in a nutshell, anyone who says otherwise is selling something!

Small Bite...

  • **Confessional Aside Here: My folks will laugh when they see this, but I have a slight addiction to very unreasonable fondness  for Oatmeal Cream Pies.  I don’t know what is in those things, but c’est, si bon (it is so good, as they used to say in the old Yoplait commercials).  In fact, I used to get in trouble because anytime my mom would buy a box, I would sneak the box in my room and wolf them down like they were my last meal. Yes, the whole box, all 4 million calories of it (I’m hoping that figure is an exaggeration). Then I would get a “whoopin” after I got caught. Every. Time.  Oatmeal Cream Pie= Wolf-like behavior= Get whooped.  I didn’t care (I did when the belt came calling, still didn’t stop me).  I was a child possessed by the siren call of sugary creamy goodness.  So, the pies were few and far between at home (which I’m sure made things worse), and I normally don’t buy them as an adult. So, being the sensible adult that I now am, and also being many miles away from any belts that could be used against me, I bought some a couple of weeks ago.  There was no issue of scarcity, I could go buy more if  I wanted, so I should be able to contain myself, right?  The last time I scarfed ( I will bring this word back) a box of OCP (as they should be called) was at least ten years ago, so… So I took them to my room, and while studying, ate the entire box.  At least it was over 48 hours, and not in one sitting. I won’t be buying anymore OCP, apparently too much temptation for me. Really, Little Debbie © should be ashamed of themselves for making something like that. I probably need to be beaten for that.  I’ll be watching Mom’s luggage when she comes.
  • You may have noticed I've been doing more posts on recipes than on working out.  And also haven't been weighing in as often... Well, unfortunately I've been battling the same pound or two for a while now.  I...have..plateaued.  What?!  I know,  I know.  It is easier for me to focus on eating healthy than on exercise.  There's more control there.  If you eat poorly and gain weight you know you are at fault.  But if you exercise and the weight doesn't move as fast as you would like, then you have to realize you are at the mercy of other factors that cause weight to move. On the brighter side, I am back at the gym, and hoping that the new nutrition, paired with some new motivation, will keep things moving in the right direction.  I'm already noticing better posture again and more room in the jeans, even if the scale isn't moving... PS Another victory:  I actually went to the gym in the morning this week.  Anyone who has ever tried to wake me up knows this is a miracle of epic proportions. Not. A. Morning. Person. Am going to try to make lightening strike twice tomorrow. Today is the LAST DAY I'll weigh in at 189.4 lbs. Happy Fitness (and Nutrition),   Ms. Biggy Smalls
