Kingsmill white bread now has as much fibre as wholemeal! That's what they're now advertising over in the UK *face palm
Also chatting to my friends from University, we're all meeting up this weekend. They all went to order a pizza, I've opted out and all I got was "treat yourself once in a while" "eat everything in proportion and you'll be okay" "what you're doing is not appealing". These people are meant to be my friends Trying not to get so wound up by other people's comments but it's so annoying when they're saying all this stuff about my lifestyle yet they're the ones that are overweight lol!
I was asked to join a new committee at work to focus on Healthy Lifestyles led by fitness professionals. You know, fight diabetes, obesity.... they have those jumbo 600 calorie bagels and cream cheese for breakfasts for us.
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
The good news: every day we get a big box of fruit (there's two loaves of bread and boxes of powdered creamer in there too, but we'll ignore that. I do)
The bad news: the box is for smart balance buttery spread. 79% natural vegetable oils; 100% vegan!
If that wasn't enough: it's apparently a thirty pound box. That is a LOT of spread. Who thought that sounded like a good name anyway? Spread. Like your thighs after eating this stuff.
But it's 100% vegan!
I got 99 problems but a pancake ain't one...
SW (Feb 2012): 278
SBF: 26% (Scale)
CW (Sept 2015): 200
CBF: 17% (Scale)
AKA: Texas Grok
Not really a CW moment, but I just went to buy some dark chocolate (for the first time ever) and turned one of the "dark chocolate" bars over to see how much cocoa was in it.

The dark chocolate level that you're probably wanting will have the percentage written boldly on the front. They're proud of it. They hide it on the back when it's small.
On another note, has anyone else seen cereal commercials that claim you can cure any bloated feelings by eating their cereal?
"Oh noes, I feel even more bloated, I'd better buy more cereal."
Those cereal companies are either really ignorant or really, really clever.
Today at lunch I was discussing organ meats with some coworkers. One of them, an older gentleman was talking about liver, heart, etc and we were having fun grossing out the other girl there. Then he goes and says, "I don't eat much organ meat, it's not so healthy." Then he goes and finishes his pb & j with pickles. Ugh.
The girl, was thoroughly disgusted, as in, why would you ever eat an organ like that? I was talking about how it's more responsible to eat more of the animal. Her reply was that it didn't matter because she didn't kill the animal. I kind of stopped after that. Nothing was processing anymore. She got all excited to discover intermittent fasting a week ago and today had an orange for lunch.
