I think people need to stop bothering you about the steel cut oats! It's your diet and I know we have these kind of blogs to get support from others but I think these people need to shut up! You eat whatever kind of oatmeal you want! :)

ah so cute! Thanks. I don’t mind the help/support/kick in the butt from people though. I’d never even heard of steel cut oats until the other day… and if it helps shed some lard, well… then I’m all for it!

I’ve decided I’ll stick to two packs (1 reg, 1 flavoured) for now… as the weight seems to still be coming off with two. Thanks for the support!

Dear Diary Flashback: February 8, 2005

i want blue eyes
i want straight hair
my favourite movie is shawshank redemption
i weigh 196 pounds
i have to retake 2 courses
i’m $20,000 in debt
i lie
i’ve cheated
i love animals
i hate snakes
i want to be loved
i envy people a lot
i am conservative
i’m not sure if God exists
i’ve smoked weed
i’ve done hard drugs before
i love my family
i have a slight birthmark on my tummy
i’ve never loved a boy
i don’t think i’m pretty
i strive for compliments
i often throw up
i want to be skinny
i often dream
i say ‘if only’ too much
i want to be tanned
i want to be beautiful
i’m terrified of a loved one dying
sometimes i want people not to succeed
i’m terrible with emails
i’ve never worn a bikini
i’m terrible at managing money
i wish i could write properly
i don’t like me

I often (in an attempt to procrastinate from sleep, why? i do not know) flip back through my diaries and read my rambling thoughts from that day a few years back.  This was 2005’s.  I’m so pleased I’m not that person anymore, so naive to her life and the person she was.  Sadly,  I still think some of those thoughts sometimes, but at least I’ve moved (am moving) onwards and upwards, right? Right.

I’ve been craving a new pair of heels (cough these beauts cough) and think I may cave this coming weekend as my Q4 bonus arrives in my account Thursday.

The nude colour this season? OhMyGod.

I find steel cut oats at my local bulk food store, so if you have a Bulk Barn or something like that around, I'd check there. It's also usually way cheaper!

Ohhhhh I don’t have a Bulk Barn near me downtown, BUT The Parents house has one very close to them, so next time I visit I’ll be sure to buy lots of steel cut oats in bulk. Thanks!

Also on this topic, I noted Helveticarock’s reblog and PC carries them too!? Oh my! I rarely get to go to Loblaws slash PC carriers, but will take a gander at the shelves next time I’m there.

Mom: How's the new diet/book going?
Me: Oh, ya know... I'm just rocking and or rolling at it!
Mom: What does that mean?
Me: I'm losing weight, and? it's freaking awesome
Mom: That's great.
Me: Ya, I'm really excited, I feel I can actually reach my goal weight on this, go me!
Mom: I hate to say it, but I've heard that before. A lot.
Me: But this diet is different, I don't feel like I'm on a 'diet, at all actually! I'm 100% doing the 'diet', there's no, "I can't wait till I don't have to record my food," or "I can't wait until I get to the next phase," this is it, and I'm loving it.
Mom: Wow, that's a good point. I've never heard you say that before.

I feel kind of dumb asking this, but what is the eat clean diet?

That’s one secret I’ll never tell.


Gossip E

That’s a lie, I’ll post soon about the details of the diet/book and my thoughts on it (when I find time), but for now you can check out this! Thanks for asking, E.
