Oh, my phaithful phollowers, how I have missed you!
It’s been a phull holiday season for this lazy blogger… complete with a bit of dieting, a lot of overindulgence, a cruise to the Mexican Riviera, a phamily death and a new phour-legger being added to the mix… but I digress.
Time for a new year and a new phocus!
Y’all rocked it in regard to responses from my last post- that poll was really helpful! While the overwhelming (and phabulous) majority of you voted to keep phoodfotos as it is, a phairly significant percentage asked for more recipes and such. You guys actually want me to cook???
Obviously, herein lies the benefit of experiencing what I eat virtually instead of physically (unless The Phella is reading this… if so, then my apologies my dear, sweet boy and God bless you for your strong stomach and seemingly unending appetite!) – my skills in the kitchen have REALLY deteriorated over the years. But no more! I am ready to take on the kitchen phull stop. I will beat, whisk, chop and [not bake] it into my slave.
Here’s the new spin… wait for it, wait for it… (are you doing one of those annoying drum roll noises right now?)… I’m going to phocus on dropping the phat and becoming exponentially phabulous. Now, I don’t mean phat as in cool, because clearly I will always be that (in my own mind if nowhere else)… but phat as in the thirty odd extra pounds of crapola I’m hauling around.
Enough is enough.
Less phat, more phab will be my 2012 mantra.
I can do this… with your help.
Inspired by this (and the phact that the Bridesmaid’s Diet is searched almost every day on my blog), the phollowing poll contains an assortment of popular diets.
Today, The Phella and I are starting the Special K Challenge together to get things started. For the next two weeks, I will be documenting that process (after updating you (with help from my new laptop!) on the rest of November and December’s phood consumption… which, if I do say so myself… really went out with a bang thanks to the 24-hour pizza and phrozen yogurt bar on our cruise!)
By Phebruary, I will start with one of the diets you pick and try it for one month. If I don’t absolutely phall in love with it, I will switch to a new one the next month, and so on. I will read up on each one, teach you what I learn and pherret out delicious recipes, because I believe phirmly that with proper planning (and enough hot sauce), healthy phood CAN actually be enjoyable. Part of me just wrote that so I could try to believe it… that whole goals are more successful when you write them down concept and all that jazz…
So my catch up posts are headed your way this evening, but speak now or phorever hold your peace! Until then, I’ll be enjoying my cereal.
…and P.S. Not a single person mentioned by PH abuse. Thus, the phloggings will continue until morale improves!
