My Mastercard Commercial Moment

Fitting into an alumni shirt from your college in a size SMALL (with a thermal shirt on below it)...


Everything I bought at my alumni's bookstore over Homecoming Weekend was a size small. Last year at Homecoming, I was so excited that I was wearing extra large. What a difference a year makes huh?

On a more serious note: Since I am trying to maintain my weight now, I've pretty much not been paying attention to carbs. Here is the situation though...I am getting way too many SIMPLE carbs. I worry about really crappy habits forming. There will be a day when my DS doesn't malabsorb to the extent that it does now.

One change that I am going to start this weekend is introducing toast (with peanut butter) into my daily routine. (Much better than the cookies, etc that have been in my daily routine the past two weeks.) The other item I had thought of adding was a banana a day. (Still not sure about this one yet.) I just don't want old habits to creep back with a vengeance. One thing I am holding strong to is the no Coca Cola. I know myself too well for this. It is stronger than crack, and I would be an addict again after the first sip.

You might also try potatoes (mashed, french fries, chips, etc.) to get carbs in. They tend to not give me gas like white flour products and they are really inexpensive and versatile. And yeah, stay away from the Coke!
