So much for being healthy. I'm sitting here clogging my arteries with a bag of white castle sliders. I should know better but I love these dam things.

I am trying to eat healthier but its sooo hard to do. I can choke down yogurt and some other things but some of that stuff taste awful. I am eating a lot more salads but after I smother them with blue cheese dressing and croutons I am probably defeating the purpose.

Had my salad tonight Carey. I did skip the croutons to make it a little healthier, however I didn't skip the half bottle of blue cheese.

I have found a healthier way of eating that I may be able to deal with. Its called the paleo diet. I can eat all kinds of stuff. According to that diet the hunters and farmers have had it right all along. The grow it or shoot it diet. I can do that.

Well, I am beginning to have second thoughts about my paleo diet. At first I thought what a great plan. I can eat bacon and eggs and fry my bologna in lard. What can go wrong? Last night I decided to have me a bacon topped burger with a side of fries. So I checked the diet and it said the only potatoes I could have were yams. I figured well sweet potato fries are not my favorite but I guess I can live with that. Then I discovered that I can not have bread. I hate wheat bread but I like rye so I just figured I could have that. Nope. No wheat, no rye, not even pumpernickel. That's when things got worse. No ketchup. No ketchup? Why not just take away sunshine and puppy dogs? Can you even imagine a world without ketchup? I checked a little further and sugar is also off the menu. Not even the fake stuff. No payday candy bars? No snickers? No chocolate cake? Well I guess the cake doesn't matter because I'm not allowed milk either. Not even that water flavored milk they give my kid at school. This isn't working out so well

I should have known there would be a catch. I guess I will just have to learn to eat things I don't like.

I guess I will start using the nutri-bullet again. Fill up mostly on stuff that's good for you and doesn't put on weight. The great thing about it is that you can put in things like kale and other raw veggies then throw something in to give it a better flavor. I usually use strawberries because they have so much flavor that they over power everything else. That's really the secret to V-8 juice. They put in a bunch of stuff that would not taste good together but then they put in enough tomato and tabasco to over power everything else.

I used to juice all the time. I would make a juice of romaine lettuce, apples, kale, cucumber and carrot. It wasn't bad once you got used to it.

OK, I got on the scale a few weeks ago and realized that I had gained about 30 lbs this year and went on a diet and started exercising. Since then, I have lost about 11 lbs and counting. I don't know how I let it get out of hand like that.

For the record, I have always weighed around 110 lbs and I am about 5' 2" and gained a little bit more over the last couple of years. I was at around 125 lbs for the longest time but when I hit 155 lbs, that was all she wrote. DIET AND EXERCISE TIME MY FRIENDS!!!!!

Blueberries, oranges, bananas, apples, kiwis, grapes, strawberries, and papayas — take your pick and take a bite, because these fruits are superfoods for your health. Those are supposedly the healthiest fruits. Good news for me is I like all of them except kiwi.
