I've failed! (Well Sort of)

I was trying to go 365 days without eating certain bad foods. For the last week or so, I have eaten stouffers microwavable t.v. dinners. That was on the list. I'm kind of upset with myself, but they had a good sale for them, and the Marie Callanders dinners too. Okay i'm not really upset with myself. I added it knowing that I would possibly change my mind. Like Chris said if I do slip up, I am still compliant with 95% of the goal. So I am not going to let that get me down.

Anyways the real goal was not to eat junkfood like my Achilles heel (Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies) and fast foods from McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's. Those I have fought hard within to keep at bay. I honestly wanted to stop eating those TV dinners, but with the erratic hours I get at work, it's hard to come home and cook dinner. Sometimes I just want something quick so I can go to bed.

I might just start eating sandwiches, but I need to find a substitute for Miracle Whip and Mayonnaise. ->Help<-.

Today I went and caught the bus to go to see the movie "Ghost Rider", but when I got out to my destination, I realized that I wasn't going to make it to the theater from the mall. A couple of days ago we got hit with a snow storm that dumped about 20 inches of snow here. The roads are perfectly fine. It's the Sidewalks that suck. It's a little complicated to explain. I could have taken a bus that would have gotten me closer to the theater, but it doesn't run within the time frame that would get me to the theater on time to see the movie. I only like to go and see a movie when its starting between 12 and 2pm, because I don't have a car yet and the buses don't run as frequent after 11:30am.

So I took a bus that would take me to the near by Mall (town of Irondequoit), and I decided to walk from there. I made a quick stop at a video game store and made a purchase that I had been waiting weeks for, and then when I walked up to the side walk I saw snow that would have been up to my kneecaps. I wasn't going to walk in the street in Irondequoit either. There was and is a lot of traffic out there, and people drive crazy on a busy road. So I turned back and caught the bus home.

Maybe next time!

I don't see that TV dinners are that bad for you. They are usually pretty well-balanced.

So go for the Healthy Choice, which have a little less salt in them.

As for a mayo substitute, the Hellman's light mayo is really really good.

I like the new blog template Charles!

When you wrote about all that walking, it made me wonder, how's your foot doing?
