Acai Berries

Do you see that picture?  It is a deal breaker.  As in, I can't deal with it when they are in my house.  I cannot stop eating them.  They are 100% a diet buster.  My sweet girlfriend gave them to me for Christmas.  I think she was trying to sabotage my diet.  So, I have decided the best way to get rid of them is to eat them as quickly as possible.  

Bad, Jess, bad.

Over the time I was gone I gained 3 pounds.  In 10 days.  That is a lot of really bad calories for you.

But I am bouncing back.  Hopefully.  Because when I go to New York this spring I want to be able to eat my heart out (what a dumb saying) and not gain a pound.  Of all the things planned in New York, I am most excited to eat at amazing restaurants.  You don't have to tell me how low I am setting the bar for myself.  What about culture?  It's in the food people.

Moving on.

Downton Abbey Season 3 begins again this Sunday.  You are watching aren't you?  I am frantically trying to find foods, snacks and drinks that completely sum up being British to serve at my soiree.  Not doing well on that front.  If there is anyone British still reading (something I seriously doubt, who blogs about dark chocolate covered blueberries?) please feel free to chime in.  

And on the whole journaling my life, I have done two entries.  Not bad considering we are only 4 days in to 2013 and I set my goal at least 3x per week.  Day one was kind of a cop-out though.  My journal went something like "decided to journal for 2013.  wish me luck".  I'm not even sure it counts, but since I was a little irritated at Chris I decided that it was better to write that then complain about hubby on the first day of the New Year. 

Now that I have just sort of mindlessly written a post, I think I should call it good.  See what traveling for extended periods of time with 5 children causes you to do?  Drift.  A week home and it's like I have ADD.  Can't even concentrate for one post.

  1. "The best way to get rid of them is to eat them." - That was funny! Why throw them away and waste money when you can get rid of them by eating them? Hahaha! Actually, I've learned that acai berries are good for weight loss, but coating it with dark chocolate and still think you'd shed some pounds is a misconception.
