HELLOOOO! I hope everyone has enjoyed this Labor Day weekend and that you all had plenty of time to enjoy family, friends, rest and relax!!!
Today, was a good day! Got up fairly early and went to walk with my friend Deb...who I have not seen in a lifetime. Except we did not walk...but instead TALKED!!! Something that I have always LOVED doing with her!!! She is absolutely hilarious...and is a wonderful OVERCOMER!!!
I met her when I was still in college...I went to work for a mortgage company while on break from school...Worked with some great people...some really funny people...so I think it is quite a blessing to get to sit down with her 20+ years later and talk about life!!!
Another one of those great God moments...Funny enough...she lives less than 20 minutes from me...so she is going to be a new walking partner!!! Nice!!!
So...After a full day of visiting...I managed to squeeze in a nap before getting ready for work tomorrow!!
But...tonight...I want to discuss an issue...A Cereal Issue....I love cereal...especially as a late night snack....I come by it naturally. My whole life I have memories of getting up during the night and seeing the shadow of my grandmother sitting at the breakfast table have a "midnight" bowl of cereal...Either that OR she would have a bowl of cereal right before she went to bed!!
Regardless...I am my grandmother's grand daughter!! I like a bowl of late night cereal...Which leads me to this...I am a Serial "Cereal" Eater...A Cereal Killer so to speak...I can "kill" a bowl of cereal in 5 minutes!! Gulp!
When I started this Journey...I knew....deep down inside that late night cereal was No Bueno!!! And I realized that if I was going to tackle this weight loss...I could no longer be a "Cereal Killer"!!!!
Well...kicking the habit has been an uphill battle...I generally have done really well...but lately...Lately...I have gone back to my "killing" ways...
Now...Instead of slaughtering a bowl of Frosted Flakes though...I am attacking a bowl of Kellogg's Special K (Special Killer) Honey and Oat Flakes...Geezer Flakes!!!
I have to stop...late night cereal is a no-no....It is Fluffy Girl's nightmare...or at least it is for the FG!
So...I am attempting to cut myself off...mend my evil Cereal Killing ways and give myself a Cereal Death Penalty...NO MORE CEREAL.
It is just one of those foods that I cannot have! It may sound odd to some of you...but...throughout this entire Journey...I have mentally made a list of foods that I cannot have...that are just dangerous overeating foods!!!
So as a part of tackling year two....Sorry Kellogg's...but this girl has got to stop!!!
I must find a new snack to fill my beloved cereal's shoes...I must get back to my almond butter and banana snack...or grapes...but NO MORE CEREAL...
Insert Musical interlude here "Taps"
So...clearly I have my continuing food battles to overcome!!! I can beat this Cereal addiction!!! :))
