Randomness

I was going to post about my new lifestyle venture but it wasn't coming out right at all.

So here's what's new w/ me:

1. I started a new diet plan. I purchased some books from the "Eat This, Not That" series. It's shocking to see how many "healthy" foods are filled w/ sugar and fat. And Egg McMuffins are actually good for you (provided you don't add sausage!) I'm more aware of what I'm shoving down my pie hole. I feel shitty 'cause I'm dragging Sexybeast through this lifestyle change w/ me. So far his patience is holding up...

2. The house is taking real shape and we're hoping to move in sometime at the beginning of October. I'm hoping sooner but the best laid plans of mice and men....

3. I got my 1st rejection letter from a literary magazine and I feel OK about it. After we get settled into the house, I can start sending my story out via snail mail. Would you believe that most literary publications will not accept electronic submissions? LAME!

4. Listen to Andrew Bird. He's creepy and textured and lovely. Buy all his CD's today!!

OK off to work now

Egg McMuffins may be one of the better choices at McD's but it would be better for you if it came on a whole grain muffin.

Do not underestimate the diet scuttling power of white flour and other refined grains.

Brown rice rules. 100% whole wheat flour is great. And white flour is like the dessert of baking - delicious, but a sometimes treat.

Good luck.

Thanks Daniel, i love love love those Arnold's Sandwich Thins multi-grain flavoured. And definately that gal that doesn't eat a whole lot of refined sugars anyways. I'm trying my best!

I call the egg biscuits my 'hangover saviors' since they make a hangover go away like no one's business! (With bacon, and I don't even wanna know how many calories are in those suckers...) Kudos for healthy eating!

AlbanyJane: according to the book, bacon is a much maligned meat product. Keep on porkin'! (not in a sexual way!!) And thanks for the support : )

I can understand not accepting electronic submissions. Can you imagine the avalanche of shitty, poorly masked fan-fic they'd get if they didn't impose some barriers?

phairhead said...

so they'd rather have shitty fan fic via snail mail killing millions of trees. i stand by my conviction, LAME

i just have to say, i know this won't help, but the sausage and egg mcmuffin offered by mcdonald's is to me the most perfect breakfast food of all time. i could have one of those suckers each breakfast, every day, for the rest of ma life

love your new avatar, babes
