Saturday Swapit #23

Di is the host:

This week’s theme is not so much as having the nibbles, but how we deal with days when trying to keep to plan is futile.

I binge eat when I am super stressed out. I have found however, if I admit my binge it occurs less frequently. I know my problem isn’t always what I eat it is how much I eat.

I know that cereal is not the best breakfast food despite what some people say or think. I have heard so many different things but I go through periods when I just want cereal. My favorite has always been Lucky Charms because I liked the plainness of the cereal pieces with the sugar from the marshmallows. The last time I started buying them I found that the cereal pieces are now glazed or something. The same cereal but from Aldi’s is better because the pieces are not frosted. That being said I am done with Lucky Charms.

My newest thing for cereal is Kix. I love it and it doesn’t have that much sugar in it. It seems healthy enough. But…it is made from corn and it is cereal. I also love Special K and Raisin Bran.

David is on a healthy eating plan so cooking for him makes me cook a little healthier for myself. I don’t use a lot of fat and oils but I do love pasta as a side dish or sometimes potatoes. I can live without all that and do enjoy a quick stir-fry with ground turkey, spinach and a few other veggies.

Overall, I think I need to focus on eating only when I am truly hungry and portion control.

Three Things Challenge #867

Your three words today are:

Once upon a time
in a world not far away
there was a great big man
who worked hard night and day
he had a slate car park
right where he parked his bike
he saw a horror movie
it’s one he didn’t like
he thought the scenes were boring
the characters were dumb
he knew he’d rate this movie
with a down stroke of his thumb.

Your three words today are:

Before I was able to think about writing I saw the word “kiln” and thought I would share my first pieces of pottery from the class David bought me for my birthday. Not great but I am happy with them. It’s hard to really capture the colors since I’m not setting up any fancy photoshoot!

I am not keen on the color design I used on the “ashtray-looking” piece. I didn’t know that how it would look when it was finally out of the kiln. If I leave it outdoors it will eventually grow some sort of algae that looks like kelp. I just haven’t decided where to put it. Maybe even a coaster for under a plant.

Your final three words for this week are:


Once upon a time I existed
in a world where there never saw pain
but now in the life that I’m living
I refuse to live life feeling vain
Instead I love the world all around me
I enter with a curious mind
Life can expire so quickly
I enjoy every last minute I find.
