Cravings

Today, I can't get the thought of a Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza out of my head. I want one and I want to eat it all, all by myself. I am home alone so I can. But I am trying to lose my retirement weight so I shouldn't.

How do you deal with cravings? I'll tell ya man, I can smell it, taste it, and savor it.

Is there somewhere you can just get a slice?

Witholding will just make you binge later - eat the slice real slow and savor it - you'll be full by the end!

or eat with a pound of grapes like freebird says and you'll be really full! haha

One of the reasons you ERd was because life it too short.
If you found yourself in a car crash today, hanging upside down from your seat belt with your life draining away would you think: "I'm glad I didn't have that pizza."

Give in, give in. On the way home from a healthy walk I stopped at the hand-packed ice cream shop after a soup and salad lunch. Between post 2 and 3 I starting savoring vanilla custard. Mmmm. Put me on Ignore before it's too late.

Yesterday I read a story on CNN about a horrible animal cruelty case at a pig farm in Iowa. That would stop your cravings. Could you get the pizza with just pineapple?

Or you could balance inputs with outputs by swimming 17 races...

Michael Phelps dove into the pool 17 times over the nine days of competition at the
Beijing Olympics and walked away with a record-breaking 8 gold medals!






During the Olympics the world got to know a lot about Phelps,
including the way he has given new meaning to the term “breakfast of champions”.


Every time the 23 year old sits down to eat he consumes a
mind-boggling 4000 calories! That’s 12000 calories a day!


For breakfast alone this champion devours:


* 3 fried egg sandwiches (with loads of cheese, onions and mayo)
* 2 cups of coffee
* a 5-egg omelet (with more cheese)
* 1 bowl of grits
* 3 slices of French Toast topped with powdered sugar
* and 3 chocolate chip pancakes!


I’D JUMP IN THE POOL 17 TIMES A DAY IF IT MEANT I COULD EAT HALF OF THAT!

Mmmm MMMM that was a good BLT, thanks for the good idea Mo!

Whole grain bread, good bacon, slices of a nice orange heirloom tomato and a bunch of arugula. Yum.

Oh, and check this out...



Go on Martha, you'll enjoy the pizza more than you'll regret a few hundred calories...
