Hello everyone! I've been a little absent from the blogging world as of late, other than a few simple and quick recipes I've posted. I'm not here to apologize like a lot of bloggers do about not commenting on every single one of your posts because it's literally killing me to read some of them.

I think I had somewhat mentioned that I'm doing a little diet. I plan on doing said diet until the beginning of October, although I wont get into details. Basically, I'm eating very clean and in a smaller amount than I usually eat. I've restricted my diet to fresh and healthy foods that fuel my body and fill me with nutrients. Although I'm doing great (down 10 lbs!) I've had to cut out the things I love:
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Cream
  • Eggs
  • Processed foods of any kind with the exception of Melba toast here and there
  • Pork
  • Fatty cuts of meat
  • Cheese
  • Carbohydrates that don't come naturally from the fruit and vegetables I'm allowed
  • Potatoes
 Ohhhhh the list goes on and on. It's quite restrictive, and I don't know how I haven't managed to break down and eat an entire bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos with lime. I love all of your blogs, but even the ones that aren't about food tend to contain lovely pictures of where you went to dinner or what you decided to bake for a treat. It makes my stomach growl uncontrollably, and it tests my willpower. For now I've decided it's in my own best interests to stay away from reading quite as many of my favorite blogs. I still plan on posting delicious healthy recipes when I come up with them, but it's been a lot of salad and grilled lean meats lately. Hope you're all doing well, if you're in So Cal enjoy this lovely rainy weather we've been having! ^_^

I think we're on the same diet, or mine is very similar to yours! It's been hard for me too, but my results so far have been worth it! We can do it! Thanks for all of the inspiration and yummy recipes. It helps keep me on track!

Glad I'm not the only one that suffers when looking at blog-licious pics while trying to eat clean. More power to you girl. I  just discovered your blog today and I gotta tell ya....the header alone almost made me trade in my salad for some pasta, muffins, rice...ah rats.  Good luck!

Good luck with the clean eating! I'd love to try it one day but lately I've had no self control when it comes to food!

Thank you for the sweet comment and motivation!! Diets are hard, but they give you rules to follow and I find I do best with the restriction. Good luck on your journey!

Thank you so much for reading! I know it's so tough seeing all the good food porn. I have zero self control so I figured it's best to take a break from blogs for a while =P

I don't either! That's why I need the rules and restrictions =P
