The Breakfast of Champions

As you all know I am on a new mission. I'm trying to eat healthier. Cut down on the fattening stuff. Eat lighter. Ya know?

Well. This morning I decided that instead of a yummy bagel with cream cheese or a tasty sausage-egg-n-cheese on a toasted croissant, I would opt for a healthy order of oatmeal. YAY ME!! Along with the healthy oatmeal I got a healthy banana. I walked out of the Starlite Deli on W44th St between Broadway and 8th Ave feeling very good about myself. I was proud that I was able to resist temptation.

When I got to the office I announced to my supervisor (who I have recruited to be my food watchdog) that she's gonna be sooooo proud of me because of my breakfast choices. The only thing that I indulged in was a medium (rather than large) hazelnut coffee with half n half (yeah yeah next time I'll get skim ok?), three sugars and a splenda (ran outta sugar).

I proudly take my oatmeal out of the bag. I take the lid off the container and what I see is a ball of dry lumpy oatmeal (ugh) whick is OK. It's happened at home and it tastes fine. I take a spoonful to my mouth and to my surprise this oatmeal had noooo sugar and it was prepared with water instead of milk eeeeeewwwwww!! Lumpy, dry, bland and water based

In a futile attempt to sweeten the oatmeal I poured 4 lil sugar packets into this mess but to no avail! It was still nasty. Then I remembered my banana. I figured that adding it to my oatmeal in chunks would sweeten it up right? WRONG! This banana although ripe was not as sweet as it should be. All it did was add more bland lumps to the already bland and lumpy mess

But I had to eat SOMETHING so I dealt with it and had a few more bites until my stomach closed up and said NO MORE. About an hour later I heard bells. They sounded like a chorus of angels to me! The coffee cart had arrived on our floor!! I jumped up and went out to the hall to get myself a buttered roll and a blueberry yogurt...oooohh that roll tasted like heaven!

And that my friends is the story of Day 1 of the new and yet to be improved healthier me!

good morning cranky.....does this mean your turning down my offer of taking you out for a burger and a soft drink?
How about a burger fries and a diet coke??........just kidding

At the age you are now, you had well better start to take care of yourself and eating healthier.
The longer you wait, the harder it'll be. And besides.......once you start to see the results, you won't be cranky all the time. On second thought ...........you being somewhat irritated at times, might be what makes your posts fun to read................

Never eat deli or diner oatmeal! The stuff is glue. Of course it's unsweetened and you're supposed to add butter if you want dairy in it.

Just keep a box of instant oatmeal at your desk and use the microwave there to heat the water. It will be better and it already has the whey protein in it, for the dairy taste. But Jesus woman, four sugars in a medium cup of coffee?

geez...........very sorry..........no jab at all......weren't trying to offend you, believe me!!!!!!!!!
I enjoy reading your blogs and look forward to reading them.
But obviously I upset you, so I won't comment any more.......

There are alot of people reading, but not many taking the time to post a comment.
I just figure that one comment may generate another, and so on.........but if at any time, what I say might hurt someones feelings, I wont comment, because that isn't at all what I'm about!
I'd would rather makes some-one smile, than make them feel bad in any way.
AGAIN!!!!!!!!! VERY VERY SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
