Whew! Made It!

I got through the day. Intact and on track. True, I did blow some of my calories on fat free Pringles and salsa. Yes, I counted chips and recorded calories. 70 calories per serving of about 15 crisps. They were okay. Worth the cost? I don't think so much. I mean, fat free Pringles are okay, have a nice crunch and are salty. But they are done in Olestra and they leave a heavily greasy mouth feel and coating after themselves. I don't think that I really want to buy them again. I think I would have been better off and happier with veggies and salsa.

Not the best choice on the planet but certainly not a deal breaker and did me no harm.

Other than the not so great chips, I ate very well, today. I actually came in at a lower calorie count than I expected to. So, that is good. :D And I am happy that I didn't listen to ugly, destructive thoughts and binge or have a feeding frenzy. I feel good, and good about myself. I don't feel sick, angry at myself and remorseful for doing something that deep down, I really didn't want to do.

Calories today were: 1301. I can handle that. :D

It is cooler, tonight and windy. Waiting for rain, I am. I would love to see it rain. :D

Okay... Nattering, now. Time to wrap this up before I put you all to sleep. lol

Goodnight, gentle readers.


  1. I agree with you on the Pringles, I tried them & not worth the calories. I make my own pita chips now... only 80 calories for a serving & I can season them however I want.

  2. I love the ending of your blog today. Put us all to sleep never and then that lovely phrase gentle readers. You are making me start to think seriouly about what I eat and drink in a day so far I have been lucky I can burn most off but since my accident maybe I need to think. You are doing grea tthanks again.

  3. Oh happy day! There is nothing that gives one a sense of accomplishment like getting through the difficult days successfully.

    Hoping for rain for you.

  4. Great job, darlin'. I shall have to start anew today. Hate to think of the calories/fat/carbs consumed yesterday. Ei yi yi!

  5. I can't stomach Olestra at all - isn't that a yucky feeling when you feel like your tongue is coated with fat? Ewwwie...

  6. Julie, I am going to have to try pita chips. :D

    Thank you for your support and kind words, Ralph. A healthy diet isn't just for those who need to lose. It is great for everyone. :D

    Thank you, Franny.

    I know that you can do it, Sherry.

    Katie, I agree. Olestra didn't make me sick but it didn't make me very happy, either. It is yuk and I don't really think I much like it. lol

  7. I can't eat anything with Olestra in it, it goes straight through.
