Orgasmic Oysters

A couple of friends & I drove up to Tomales Bay over the weekend to check out the oyster shucking experience. Only $48 for a bag of 50, I believe. Me, I won’t even TOUCH those things. I was only present for moral support. I did hear a rumor that oysters were an aphrodisiac. Is that backed by science or is it an old wives’ tale? Doesn’t matter, I still won’t put it in my mouth. It’s the idea of something so slimy & dirty in my mouth that makes me cringe to the point where my toes curl, my heart takes a minute to restart, and my throat becomes parched for water because I can’t believe what I just tasted with my tongue.

Hmm, maybe it IS an aphrodisiac after all.

Stuff it, buffet

Okay, I have been reading health magazines all my life.. I know virtually EVERYTHING there is to know about dieting, health, fitness, etc. So WHY am I still overweight? Why don’t I just DO it already?? Last night, I hate to admit it but I indulged in some serious Korean BBQ buffet. It was sooooo delicious. How I felt afterwards was not so yummy. I wanted to keel over & pass out in the driver’s seat.

What is it with me & buffets? So my bff & I have decided to make a pact: no buffets for at least 2 months!! Okay, I lied. No buffets for 2 months except once. You have a free pass to use wisely so I have to use it VERY wisely. The thought of being able to eat whatever I want without my bill going higher than it already is is so appealing to me. I don’t usually think in terms of getting the bang for my buck but I do think in terms of wanting to taste that extreme delicious food without having to worry how much I will have to pay for it later.

Buffets: bad
Save money: good
No money: even Steven

P.S. Who the hell is this Steven anyway?

I Answer To Food When Food Is Not The Answer

I don’t know why I do this to myself but I am constantly eating food just to eat. I’m not necessarily hungry per se, just want to eat. I just want to chew on something delicious & swallow it. Even when I’m full, I still want to eat!! What is my damn problem? It’s causing me to be overweight & I have yet to do anything about it.

I think I’m just bored. Because really, if I want to entertain myself, food is not the only solution….but it’s the only solution I LIKE!! I have a love hate relationship with food. No joke. When I go to restaurants, I want a taste of EVERYTHING!! Rachael Ray is living my dream life. How can I live her life? What steps can I take to get to that point? Looks like I will have to do some research.
