Fat as Mud

blah blah blah…

Posted by: billie In: basic BS|bitching

No time for coffee, didn’t exercise, semester is finished, trying to stay low-cal with lots of cravings (cappuccinos and hershey’s kisses…but i resisted both),  and i need to get off my ass to make the strawberry freezer jam.  That sums up my day fairly concisely.

Also, my weight was up 2 lbs this morning and i can only imagine its from a combo of re-introducing carbs, upping calories and not enough sleep. Hopefully the scale will look different tomorrow.

I still haven’t taken the time for the mental-cises nor have i had a chance to catch up on my blog reading…sorry chickies, i love you all and i will get to it soon. 😉

I’ve got 2 flats of berries in the kitchen ripening too quickly. I bought a new brand of pectin that says i can use splenda so i am going to give it a try. My lovely daughter and i plan to watch an episode of X-Files then make up a couple batches.

Today’s activity: lots of driving, lots of desk work, and grocery shopping

Today’s food: greek yogurt (100) with honey (35), pistachios (170). sunflower kernels (180). almonds (100), 7 oz rotisserie chicken (320), 1 square dark chocolate (67), tortilla pizza: (110+25+10+10+10+15+70). Total = 1222

Tell me about how the freezer jam turns out – could be interesting!

its pretty good. obviously not sweet like regular freezer jam, but it still has the fresh flavor that i love so much about freezer jam. The pectin that allows splenda is Ball brand and comes in a pouch that says “no cook freezer jam.” It only calls for 1 1/2 cups of sugar or splenda for 4 cups of strawberries and the family loves the low-sugar batch.
