What I Ate Wednesday… BACON!


So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…

I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.


You ever have one of those mornings where not matter what you decide to wake up it’s still way too early… today was just one of those days. I think subconsciously I knew /I had a ton of crap to do and just didn’t want to face the day. Since I was still smarting off from the fact that my cat woke me up (damn her and her hunger!!) and I wasn’t rally that hungry I just had a yogurt.




You ever have a craving that only bacon can cure? I know you do, because you’re my people… and for the record I’m not talking about turkey bacon (although I do it eat, but the enjoyment level is not the same) I generally don’t buy or eat bacon, but I saw it  at the grocery store and it was calling my name out from the refrigerated shelf… plus it was maple… MAPLE BACON… I had to eat buy it. So I made a poor man’s BLT… which is just Bacon…

I grabbed a  Flatout out a tiny dollop of mayo and ate that sucker like a taco…yummm!




Yesterday I made Taco Soup, and passed on the corn chips, but added a bit of cheese and soup cream… Taco Soup…. taste a lot like Chili… Recipe can be found here



I am finally getting over my sweet tooth, but I notice that late at night that I get the hankering…. so I am trying to eat all my snacks at night…



My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I was able to “earn” additional 469 calories from working out. . ! .  Although I was “allowed” 1669 calories I did excellent today as I didn’t even reach 1200 calories!!



  The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 10 cups of water.. YAY ME!!


And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday; oh and before I forget if you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal

Until Next Time… you should totally try a bacon mustache!

What Is Left to Say?


In his 1934 essay, “A Negro Nation Within a Nation”, WEB DuBois wrote:

The colored people of America are coming to face the fact quite calmly that most white Americans do not like them, and are planning neither for their survival, nor for their definite future if it involves free, self-assertive modern manhood. This does not mean all Americans. A saving few are worried about the Negro problem; a still larger group are not ill-disposed, but they fear prevailing public opinion. The great mass of Americans are, however, merely representatives of average humanity. They muddle along with their own affairs and scarcely can be expected to take seriously the affairs of strangers or people whom they partly fear and partly despise.

For many years it was the theory of most Negro leaders that this attitude was the insensibility of ignorance and inexperience, that white America did not know of or…

Ugh, this always happens to me, during arguments, I’m trying to d a lot of things at a time, I’m trying not to cry (when I get really angry I cry, I’m doing my best not hit them [I know it’s not right…] and I’m trying my best to my best to stay respectful) There are times after an argument that I’m lying in bed reliving it and I thinking of all the witty comebacks I could have said… ugh it’s frustrating, but I think it I was meant to say it I would have said it.

This isn’t so much as  zinger, this is more of something I should have said during an argument with an ex friend, but I chose not to say it because despite the way  I felt it would cut below the belt…but we’re no longer friends and I don’t give a flying squat what she thinks… You are a needy, hateful evil bitch, people will continue to use you because you lack self esteem, You wanted to have gastric by-pass surgery so a man would love you, even the doctors knew you were crazy and turned you down….You continue to go back to the same man who has lied and cheated on you because you felt like you didn’t deserve better. I tried for years to be your friend, to see beyond your faults, but you suck everything good out of people to the point that they no longer what to be around you THAT’S WHY YOU ARE CONSTANTLY LOSING FRIENDS… and that’s exactly why you lost me.


Until Next Time….
