But, sigh, I must confess that visiting her blog has been difficult for me over the past month or so. As the days and weeks have gone by, I find myself less excited and giddy and more anxious about clicking the special bookmarked link I have for her blog.
Well, about a month ago, I started a diet. I decided enough was enough and set about tracking and limiting my daily caloric intake. I also started running...aka "slow jogging" three times a week. Its been going great and I've lost 15 pounds. But, this journey has not been without its battles. One of those battles is Ree's blog.
That makes me tear up a bit.
See, I still love me some P-Dub and think everything she does is fab...but...well...its hard to be resolved to go home and eat that frozen diet entree or salad or small serving of whatever mom cooked for dinner on Sunday when Ree posts things like this:
and this (drool):
and, God help me, this:
Sometimes I have to force myself to go look at this recipe, just to make it through the day.( You can read more about that trauma, here.)
Anyway, all that to say that, Ree's site and dieting are kind of mutually exclusive...unless you only plan on eating one meal a day...or, if your "diet" allows for 3600 calories a day...then you should be fine.
