Back on track *ahem* in more ways than one

There's nothing better than getting a package in the mail.  Its thrilling when the mailman brings a box up to your door.  I had come across a giveaway in one of my health mags for All bran, I figured wth, filled it out and stuck in on my mailbox.  It was weeks ago and I was sorta forgetting about it and sorta giving up hope on it, well Saturday lo & behold a package arrives.  I was so excited.  Oh and btw since starting this blog I take a picture of everything now hahaha.

Its the cutest little care package ~
All Bran Buds
All Bran Complete Wheat Flakes
Coupons for All Bran cereal, and in the pamflet (sp?) there is jokes & puzzles & recipes & info...  super cute!
Seeds for Marigold Flowers ~ this excited me to no end, I can't wait to plant these.

Aahh  its the little things people, the little joys in life.
So, after a terrible weekend where I just blew off all morals & responsibility with eating... lol  I am back on track today.  I'm still feeling gross from eating everything I avoided for a whole week.  I had a hangover all day yesterday, but the food hangover has held on another day.  I feel sluggish, tired, unmotivated, and its that time of the month as if I didn't feel shitty enough.  Oh well, like I said back on track (food wise) and for breakfast I tried the All Bran Buds, 60 cals - 0 fat - and 10g of fibre!!  That equals 0 ww points and even if you calculate it with only 4g of  fibre (like we're supposed to *eye roll*) its still 0 points.  I dumped the packet into my bowl and said "oh great, rabbit food for breakfast"...  they actually taste really good...  so good that I would buy the box, I'm not joking. I wonder if I can get some sort of All Bran sponsorship.  Of course this kind of fibre-y cereal has to be your thing cause its not sugary sweet, but its really crunchy and I dunno... it was enjoyable.   I'm sure this cereal can only further help things along but I'm proud to say (as if anyone really cares) digestive system is back on track.  Really truely not eating meat & dairy for a week has fixed my issues, to an extreme.  Can't argue with the.. um... evidence.. lol.

On another note, did anyone watch Kirstie Alley's Big Life last night?  I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of hers, sometimes she can be a little hard on the nerves but I really feel for her weight struggle, its the same no matter how famous you are, or how much money you have.  Ok I get it, its not exactly the same when you're on the cover of the magazines but she said something that just felt so pure & honest, she said her motivation for losing weight is simply because she hates how she feels FAT.  Isn't that enough...  wow, so true.

hey! i know how you feel about getting a package- i got one this morning (SHOES!) for the first time in forever.

and it sounds like we had a similar kinda weekend. these hangovers are the worst feeling ever, and, as much as i love the taste of food, i honestly think it's not worth the way i feel in the aftermath. it lasts so much longer than the taste of food, and it ALWAYS ruins my sleep. hate hate hate.

i also have similar sentiments on kirstie alley, but i can't believe i missed that show- didn't realize it was on already. what channel is it on, and what days? i am not a fan of hers but i hate the way the gossip rags have treated her. it reminds me of kelly osbourne, how she recently said that she got 10x more media coverage for being overweight than for being addicted to drugs.

i am so glad this weekend is over. we might still be feeling the physical effects of it for a bit longer, but it's history and has NO BEARING on right now! let's do the right thing today and hereafter because we CHOOSE to be healthy! <3

Hey, just fyi, if you have an ipod you might look into a nike+. I have a nike+ which tracks my speed and miles, km, etc, it goes in my shoe, but if you don't have nike+ shoes there are little things on amazon pretty cheap to hook them to your laces, I think I paid less than $30 for my nike+ and love it.
