Ok lady... you didn't follow your new rules today. This is your first warning.

Went overboard with mindless eating while reading on the couch this afternoon. Also don't have any fingernails left. Bad habit. Stupid oral fixation or something whilst lost in a book. I've tried chewing gum, but it's not the same.

***Regarding the lunch box ham: a seriously messed up little thing I'd picked up for Elliot one day, as a treat since we were having a busy day. (It's a store brand "Lunchables") After reading the nutritional info, I'm glad he didn't eat it. And I'm sorry I was the one to eat it. Contained enough chemicals to mummify me and lovely buzz words like "processed cheese food"; "chocolatey coated". 370 cal and 21 g fat per serving: 8 slices ham, 8 slices "cheese", 8 crackers and 3 cookies. Pure yum. Blech!

Mmmmmmm.... cheese bread. I feel your food pain. At least you exercise, something about walking in a city is nice. Out here I am just walking by some nosey neighbours. In order to fit into my dress for Holly's wedding AND breathe, I am on a calorie restrcited diet. AND IT IS HORRIBLE!!!!
