bloggers, we have a problem.

August 19, 2009 in 101 in 1001,food

I need an intervention. Without BF to help me decide what to eat (yes, I am often incapable of making minor decisions), I have eaten an assortment of the following:

-Fresh veggies.
-Fresh fruit.

We’re not just talking a little bit either. I’ll sit down and eat just tons of carrots. No well-rounded meal here. Nope. Monday night I got home from my (2nd) gym workout and split like 3 things of guacamole with CGirl. That’s pretty much 5 avacados! Umm… intervention!!

Anywho, enough of my ridiculous lack of eating habits.

An update on my 101 in 1001 list is overdue!

This is a great list. I might have to borrow a few for my own list. I loved the first part of your post about eating a ton of carrots. I do it too. = )


Lil' Woman August 19, 2009 at 12:33 pm

lol…your going to turn orange eating all those carrots! 🙂
And great job with your list, what kind of car did you get?


Heather (Live.Love.Laugh.) August 19, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Great list, I want to make one!


Southern Champagne Wishes August 19, 2009 at 1:06 pm

I love this list! I have got to make my own list now that you have inspired me!

Also, I totally wish I had eaten everything that you've eaten this week instead of all of the brownies that I've had!


ams August 19, 2009 at 1:14 pm

How fun!!

My friend just graduated from Syracuse and she loved the Finger Lakes wine tours… sounds sooo nice!


LawGirl August 19, 2009 at 1:18 pm

I totally feel ya! You know what I ate yesterday? Yogurt for breakfast/lunch and then an omelette for dinner. Without LB here I usually forget to eat….oops!

I'm going to start on a goal list soon, I think it will give me something to focus on!


Fidgeting Gidget August 19, 2009 at 1:28 pm

I have the same problem with food. I'll sit down with wheat thins and a tub of light garden vegetable cream cheese (sounds healthy, yes?) and eat the whole tub (or at least half) in one sitting. Defeats the purpose.

And you are trying not to swear for a whole year? WOW. There's NO WAY I could do that, I have trucker mouth sometimes!


Kassie August 19, 2009 at 1:44 pm

What a great list!! Now I want to make one. 🙂


little erin August 19, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Mich August 19, 2009 at 2:46 pm

i know i mentioned this before but i just LOVE your 101 in 1001 list! its full of such great things!

mmm avacados are so good AND good for you… maybe not when you eat 5 in one sitting though…. LOL


sarah August 19, 2009 at 3:47 pm

Ha! I am the same way with avocados…

I would just argue that it is good for you and screw well balanced if you are at least eating something with good traits. But then again, what the hell do I know!


Valerie {Next to Heaven} August 19, 2009 at 4:11 pm

I can devour a bag of chex mix or kettlecorn like you've never seen! I'm really bad about it when my hubby is gone.

When he went to China a few years ago EVERY night I would sit with a tub of fat free sherbert and a spoon and eat that watching tv! h-e-a-l-t-h-y! I tell you!

You're not alone sister!

I'm with FG on the not swearing. I've got a trucker mouth at times too. Especially when I'm mad or upset!

Good job on your list. Keep up the great work!


Melissa August 20, 2009 at 11:25 pm

I'm loving the list!!


Molly August 21, 2009 at 4:32 am

I love your list! I need to make one very soon.


Julie Dunlap August 24, 2009 at 1:32 am

I LOVE the list! I think I am going to have to make one too. Very inspiring. Regarding a more recent post, please do not take avacados away from me, guacamole is love. sigh.
