Anti climatic

Right after work yesterday I headed down to the polls to vote, then had cereal for supper (didn't feel like cooking) and zipped over to my computer to log in for Oprah's webcast. It started well and it was interesting but then it froze. I have to admit I wasn't suprised. When you have over half a million people logging into the same website at the same time there's bound to be problems. So what was supposed to be 90min wound up being 30min for me. I might download the podcast and just listen to it. My only issue with the first 30min is that it seemed Oprah did most of the talking and I would have preferred the author do more talking.

The 10 pound challenge is getting interesting at work. We have two cheesecakes this week. One for a birthday and one for a last day before transferrring to another division. One of the participants is completely against having any because we're on a diet and telling everyone that they shouldn't have any. I really don't like the diet word. I will have a piece of cheesecake, not a big piece, not a restaurant sized piece because I believe in everything in moderation. I will also plan my day accordingly. It's up to the the individual to decide what they can and can't have.

I'm making a white chocolate strawberrry cheesecake out of Bon Appetit magazine. Which I have to start tonight.

There's no point going through life misreable by denying yourself things, think it through, track it and account for it.

Have a great day!

I think if you make something off limits, you end up eating the whole cake! Should be interesting to see how it all works out with everyone having different ideas on how to change their eating habits.
