Progress Report / Kitty Blogging

As month one of Operation: Stop Being Such A Fatty (Oh, And Eat Healthier Too) (which will henceforth be known as Operation: Lard Out, because change is good) draws to a close, it's time to examine what I've accomplished over the last four weeks.

I kept the two pounds from last week off, so overall I'm down 6 pounds. My BMI has dropped 1.2 points. I've only baked once, which is pretty much a record for me since I used to bake twice a week or more. And the one time I did bake didn't become a major deal. I didn't eat 12 cookies at once. I'm learning to handle junk food and snacks and food in general in a way that I never could before. I can have a cookie or two and that's enough. I can have one tablespoon of chocolate chips and be completely satisfied with that amount. It takes less food to fill me up, and I'm enjoying real, healthy food just as much if not more than junk food.

It's been a good month. I'm looking forward to the next one.



And now, a break from out regularly scheduled food blogging. It snowed las night, and now there's a thick white blanket over Lancaster. My kitty, Miss Scarlet, was quite intrigued by this new development.


Checking out the snow.


Kitty face.


And... the full body shot.

Congrats on your progress! That is amazing. It's also incredible how much keeping a log of what you eat helps you realize where your problem zones are.

Miss Scarlet is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful cat! I love her!!! :)

Congratulations on the progress ! I have such difficulties not baking, so I try to have people around to eat stuff, bake stuff that I don't like, and cut down on sugar and oil when I do bake.

And the kitty shots - beautiful. She's such a serious looking cat!

punky! - Thanks! Keeping a log does make a difference. It kind of keeps me accountable. And I'll be sure to pass the compliment along to Miss Scarlet - she'll be pleased. :)

jess - Yeah, baking is a tough one. But I love to cook as well, so I'm just kind of focusing my energy more in that direction. Although I would like to try to do some more "healthy" baking - cutting down on oil and sugar like you said.

As for the kitty, she is very serious-looking. Don't let that fool you, though. She can be as nuts as they come, and also glare daggers if she's not happy. She stared at me like that for ten minutes straight once. I feared for my life.

Is Miss Scarlet a kitten? She has a very youthful look about her. Or maybe she's just a small cat? Sooo cute.

She's about a year and a half old, so she's not a kitten kitten but she's still young. She's kind of long but very slender as far as size goes.
