which hungry girl??

Just checking in real quick. I really don't have much to say. Feeling kind of blah and tired. Sticking to my daily walking. Even killed on the treadclimber this morning...SWEATING! Kicked up the incline and the speed! It's such a great feeling. Trying to drink more H20 this week. Food has been same as last week. I will just keep eating what is working for me till it doesn't anymore. Kind of getting bored with the same food and the same exercise. I am probably just suffering from hormones. Sometimes being a girl sucks. Like I said...BLAH.

I have been thinking about MAYBE dating. Not that I have men beating down my door, but I must admit, that would be my next BIG hurdle to get over. I am living kind of a hermit life. Go to bed super early, getting up super early. I have friends, but a companion would be nice, I guess, I don't know. Crap just thinking about it scares the hell out of me. I don't know if I could take the rejection. Maybe I will think some more about

It's my daughter's B-day Saturday. I think I am getting her a Hungry Girl cookbook. But which one?? For those of you who have both, please enlighten me on which one is the best. We are meeting at Olive Garden for dinner. I will check the website and pick out what I am going to eat before I get there. Planning is essential!

Keep the mood and the food real........take a chance!


  1. blah and tired? sums up my mood today, missus! Kudos to you for still working out. I have done nothing. And I just had a holiday... not good!

    do you mind giving me your email addy? I want to ask you something but don't really want to discuss it in a post!

    ive been hearing lots of people talk about those hungry girl cook books... may have to check it out.

  2. I think I'd like to get the 200 meals under 200 calories one. (I think that's the right title!)

  3. Getting bored? Well, maybe it's time to shake it up a little bit? Rev it up a bit? Can you mix exercise with meeting potential dates? Just throughing out some ideas......

    55 pounds gone - Woo and Hoo!

  4. Mmm...Olive Garden. Totally going their on Monday. I think you'll find that as your confidence and self-esteem grows, it will be easier to put yourself out there and start dating again. Just acknowledging that you think you'd like to start is a big step if you have not done it for a while.

  5. Feeling blah too, but unlike you didn't get my work out done. Good job on doing that! Hope you have great birthday celebration. I need to check out those cookbooks.

  6. Hiya! I hope youre feeling better by the time you read this. I would check out for reviews on the cookbooks, that usually helps me decide on some things.

  7. Men beating down your door? Let them out! Don't keep em all to yourself!

    I'm alone as well ... never had a relationship in my life to speak of and never married. Kinda/sorta like that this is the life I've led but I think of having a male companion too. Friends are great but a good man to hang around with would be wonderful. I get really lonely thinking about it never happening for me.

    1. Don't think of them rejecting you as a bad thing. It opens the door for the right one to walk on through.
    2. Also, remember, YOU are the one choosing THEM to see if they are right for YOU.
    As someone who doesn't know the first thing about dating and who actually needs a therapist to walk her through this (I was never taught and never properly learned) I did learn these two things when I gave it a bit of a go.

    I found out I need a bit more time to work on things about myself before I'm ready but I'm ok with that.

  8. I don't have a hungry girl cookbook so I'm no help there. Let me know what you find out lol. Hope you have a great Birthday dinner with your daughter. I love Olive garden, I always get grilled chicken over whole wheat pasta, I'm not a salad person I'm sure there are healthier things but I do enjoy it.

    I know what you mean about blah and tired I get to feeling like that sometimes too.

    Way to go on the treadclimber!!! Hope you find a good man too, you deserve one.

  9. Wow! I am so proud of your exercise. Do you like your treadclimber? They look cool (but hard) on the commercials.

    As for dating, please do not assume you will be rejected. You have LOTS to offer. Also, maybe you will find that you are too good for some people and do the rejecting. You will never know unless you try. Just jump into the deep end of that pool. If you have friends who can set you up that might be more successful.

    No matter what you decide, I am with you. But if you are lonely, you can easily fix that. I would date again but I think that might make my husband mad (just kidding)!

    Good deal on planning ahead. Have fun at the party!

  10. So glad Olive Garden finally posted their nutritional information, even though it's a little SCARYYYY.

    I bet either of those HG books are good!

  11. Great job on the treadmilL!!
    The same routines may get tedious but it sounds like you are doing awesome with your perserverance! Hang in there!

  12. You are doing great! Good job on keeping up with your exercise and eating right even though you are not feeling like it.

    Sorry, I don't even know what a Hungry Girl cookbook is.

    Great idea to go to Olive Garden website before you go to lunch. Their endless soup salad & breadstick lunch is good. I've that a few times... but I just don't eat the breadsticks (oh, maybe just one).

  13. I'd vote for the 200 under 200. It's newer and (in my opinion) better. Neither would be a bad choice, though :)

  14. You can't go wrong with either HG cookbook - but I would do the 200 under 200 since it's the new one.

    Hormones...argh. I think that's been part of my issue this week, and it sucks because you feel irritable, and pretty much know why, but can't do much to stop those feelings. Do you suppose all of us bloggers are on the same cycle? Scary thought!!!

  15. I've been thinking of jumping back into dating too but I feel terrified! It's funny, I used to date when I was fatter and I didn't worry about being rejected (well, any more so than anyone does), but now that I'm thinner I feel like my new self-confidence is so fragile that I'm afraid that if I don't have an immediately line up at my door of gorgeous successful types, my self-confidence will be shattered. Silly, but at least I'm aware of it. If you do decide to date, I look forward to reading about it! :-)


Tell me what you think!
