Tuesday August 31, 2010 - Candy bar nightmare

Okay you every have one of those dreams where everything is chocolate and I mean everything.   Well I had one of those last night and it is a wonder that my hubby did not say I bit him.    I guess I am craving chocolate or something or I am having a mid life crisis one or the other.  Anyway I get to work this morning and my boss is selling those chocolate covered almonds that the schools sell.  OMG..  I could smell them across the room while he was eating them.   This was like crack or something.  My mouth was watering, I was sweating, and I had to have something chocolate.   Well Weight Watchers to the rescue..  My WW brownie that I had in my lunch was just enough and I was safe.    What is this obsession with chocolate, it must run in my family.  Maybe my mother put chocolate milk in my bottle or something.  I am going to call her and find out..  lol

Great day on my eating yesterday, and I went home and walked and played on the wii.   I have been doing my Zumba on the weekends and I am trying to work in as much exercise as possible.   I still have not made a decision on the bike yet, I was leaning toward the one from Walmart, but I came across one that folds in half that is a 3 speed and I can haul it in my car.  So I am still trying to decide which one to get.  The price difference is not that much so I can go either way.  I am going to take my time though and make sure it is the one I want.  I also want to wait and see if hubby is going to be off work for a month or two.  That will also make the choice for me due to money.

I have become a grilling machine, and I am just about grilling all of our meat.  What can not go on the grill goes in the George Foreman.  I cut Cornish hens in half last night and sprayed them with olive oil and put Mrs. Dash on them.  They were great.  I fried hubby some okra and fixed some grilled veggies for myself.   He ate half of them, I knew I should have fixed more. 

Here is yesterdays food journal...

Ah a woman that knows the value of grilling meat, a lucky husband you have there. I grill as much as I can. I'd grill 46 times a day if I could eat that many meals and lose weight. Sadly I cannot.

Chocolate dream, funny. I have similar dreams about bacon from time to time.

I totally had a brownie daydream today, so I definitely know how you feel. On Medifast many of the items are chocolate, but obviously-it is *not* the same kind of chocolate. So I'm in a constant state of chocolate withdrawl... LOL
