Hello, my little beautiful Brussels Sprouts of happiness.
Don’t you love that cute Hello Bacon? My graphic design partner created it to put me out of my misery when I showed her my amateurish rendition in Paint. I have a mouse pad and a Tshirt, a tote bag and a mug with the design on it. I don’t sell it because Sanrio owns the trademark, but I love it for me. It makes me smile. I hope you like it, too.
Now on to how amazing this treadmill desk is. *ahem ahem* Ladies (and most righteous dudes) I had an hour on the treadmill today working at my desk and I love it. I thought I might really like working at it, but I can only work for about an hour at a time, so I will take some more time this afternoon and work at it again so I can build up some stamina.
I am having so much fun using it and I’ve already burned 400 calories while checking my email and playing Words with Friends, and answering comments and peeking in on Facebook. I promise to post pictures soon!
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

I ate this:
Breakfast: Egg salad + baconnaise + pickle + chopped onion + diet soda
Lunch: 1/4 cup mixed, salted nuts
Snack: Pepperoni and cheese sticks
Dinner: I felt a little narky due to the oven cleaning, so cottage cheese+ olives +sunflower seeds + almonds + shredded Parm.
Exercise: Walked and worked for 2 hours at the treadmill desk.
Notes: I was wondering what the neighbors are barbecuing, but I remembered that I set my oven to “clean” and it’s caught everything in there on fire. This, my friends, is why some people call me Horoscopically Blonde.
What I learned:
I like simple foods based on proteins, fats and vegetables.
I’ve never been a dessert person. Sure, I love to bake desserts, but I also relish having a piece and then giving the rest away.
I’m not sure if the sweeteners stall me or if it’s the nut-based flours that I tend to side eye slightly (I suspect I might have an aversion to nuts or to moldy foods), but it’s just something I love to create, smell, taste, and, most importantly, gift to friends.
I love simple, basic meals, like this Salisbury Steak and fresh-cut and cooked green beans.
Keep it simple. Keep it delicious. Keep it dimplicious.
