Health kick

Today is Day One of my new diet. On it, I only eat things that are (or were) round and come in a box. For dinner, I had three clementines, a few handfuls of Kix cereal and two large glasses of Pinot Grigio.
So far, I’m feeling alllllright!
For dessert, I’m trying to decide between Milk Duds and Gobstoppers. Probably Milk Duds. Atkins Schmatkins!

    also, how did your cat’s diet go this summer? I don’t recall seeing the results/winner of Feline biggest loser.

    dave2: thank god! i’m already sick of Kix. do cheese curds come in a box anywhere?
    claire: sigh. i was really hoping everyone would forget that i tried to get my cats to lose weight, because i was a colossal failure. they’ve gained weight! i don’t get it. we all kind of quietly backed out of the competition… :)

    Cheese wheels are large and round and also full of cheese. And they would go nicely with Dave’s Ritz crackers.

    I believe that we are what we eat, so if I eat only round things, I will be round. Instead, I’ve decided to eat only things that are tall, lean, graceful and willowy. Only I can’t actually find any foods that meet those criteria, so by tonight I might switch my new diet to things that are liquid, smoky and aged over 16 years.

    Heh. Chocolate truffles are round and come in a box. Walk on over to the wild side!

    Don’t forget that Laughing Cow cheese in the round box. It would taste good on a Ritz.

    Always go with Milk Duds. Women typically don’t get enough dairy.

    finn: yup. they come in a little crate at my grocery store.
    sir: you had me at cheese. but do they come in a box? can you put one in a box and send it to me?
    shari: you could maybe eat asparagus. and celery. but that seems way less fun than my round things diet.
    churlita: preaching to the choir, sister.
    derfina: i’ve always wanted to sit around eating boxes of bon-bons, now maybe i can say it’s for health reasons!
    cheryl: i love laughing cow cheese – it comes in its own little wax casing. so cute.
    delmer: exactly – milk duds are totally one of the food groups!
    beth: oh yeah! i totally forgot about donuts! this diet is getting easier and easier.

    Dude. I’m trying South Beach and while I’ve lost 5 pounds, I’m living on eggs, brussel sprouts and onions…all round.

    The Girl and I are on week 2 of the Suzanne Somers diet…you eat carbs alone, fat/protein together and for exercise, Mr Roper chases you around the apartment.
