So glad it's Friday - Sushi night

Jazzercise again this morning. I love Jazzercise! I had forgotten how much I loved it until I joined again last week. Billy Blanks and I used to have a standing appointment every Monday, Wednesday and Friday but he just wasn't doing it for me anymore so I had to move on. So that's why I joined Jazzercise. And I'm so happy I did. I went four days last week and four days this week and I feel awesome!

So here's my question...will I ever stop thinking about food all the time? Seriously folks, I've been doing this for 18 months now and I really thought I'd be over my obsession with food. It's like when you've broken up with someone but you really wish you could get back together. You remember all the good times you had and conveniently forget about the really rotten ones. You think if you could try it again you could maybe do it right this time. And you want to call them just to hear their voice on the answering machine. It's like that with me. I think about food. I think about all the good times I've had eating ice cream. The good old days when life was simple and breakfast was leftover pizza or potato chips and ranch dip. Couldn't we try again? Couldn't I make it work this time? Couldn't I just have a bite of this and a bite of that and it wouldn't get ugly?

No. It wouldn't work. It just wouldn't. But I still want one of those Oreos up on the top shelf of the pantry. I want a PB&J sandwich. I want some graham cracker sticks. I want a little bit of everything that's in the house right now. Why? It's not the dreaded TOM. It's just my obsession with food. Something that I'll probably be dealing with for the rest of my life. Because I. Love. Food.

Anyway, what else is going on...I had Mimi's for lunch today! I love Mimi's. If you don't have a Mimi's where you are I am so sorry. My dad's girlfriend is in town and she tried Mimi's for the first time last week and had to go back before she left. I was pretty good. I had the chicken and fruit platter. A little chicken, a little fruit and a lot of big leafy greens. YUM-O! Aren't I so good and disciplined?? Not so much. In the interest of full disclosure, we did have fried pickles for an appetizer AND I had half of a buttermilk spice muffin but today is Friday. My cheat day. I let myself indulge a little bit on Fridays since it's my weigh-in day. And tonight is sushi! I'm so excited. What a great day.

Okay - I think that's enough for now. I'll come back tomorrow and tell you about the documentary I watched the other night on the BBC called Super Skinny Me. Have you seen it? Eye-opening for sure. More on that tomorrow.

I am trying to figure out the whole not thinking about food all the time thing too. I don't want to live the rest of my life that way. I am still trying to figure it out. Somedays are a lot easier than others though. Glad to have you as a new blogger!
