Change of Pace

I've decided to change the purpose of this blog a little bit. Yes I'm still going to review products and recipes etc but I'm also going to share with you my struggles and triumphs. I've been tracking my calories on caloriecount.about.com for quite a while now and what it has taught me is that we aren't alone in this. We all have our own personal struggles but we also have a lot of the same obstacles to overcome.

So here we go, time to get a little more personal.  I lost 20 pounds last year and then kind of hit a major plateau for most of 2013 so far. Trying to mix it up and try new things and see what happens.  I have about 35 more pounds to lose to be at an "ideal weight" for my height but for me its really about being healthy and making changes that will last me a lifetime. Hopefully some of what I've gone through will help anyone out there reading as well.

Pizza Hut Pucks

So the new pizza hut sliders seemed like a great idea in theory... so much easier to control yourself when you have your own individual slider to call your own!  But actually the stats on these are outrageous and one slider isn't even worth it.  They are fun because you can pick three different topping combos for the little guys, but that's where the perks stop.  The dough to topping ratio is just awful and you feel like you are just eating a mouthful of bread.  Chewy bread at that.  If you are going to splurge on pizza hut, stick with the classic pizza options (thin crust is always best!) and fruits/veggies for the topping!

So. not. worth it.
Also, seems like there's more space in the box for the same amount of money and calories...  such a disappointment over all, these sounded so fun in theory!
