2 and 1/2 Cupcakes

It is funny isn't it that after you start blogging everyday things become blog-worthy. Hardly a day goes bye where I don't interact with someone, have something happen or just think about an idea and my brain responds with: hmm that would make an interesting blog entry. I probably think about 3 possible blog entries every day. It is also noteworthy that when I do finally actually pull up my blogger window and start to type I rarely actually blog about anything I thought about before hand.

Today is no exception. I have authored several entries in my head over the last couple of days and now that I am sitting here with a window open I cannot think of a single one to get me started. So where am I going today?....Back to food of course.

I am finally starting to feel better. David thinks I got a double cold whammy...His cold from 10 days ago and a new one that he has also picked up. Now he might just be saying that so he can get a little man cold sympathy while I am sucking it all up in our house. anyway...back to the point. I hit 190.2 this morning down a good amount from 10 days ago because I have essentially been eating next to nothing. I have craved coffee (well actually a Starbuck's skim peppermint mocha)...I have had at least one a day and on some 2. other than that it has been the odd mid afternoon snack followed by 'dinner' and then not much else everyday.

Today my appetite meter turned back on. I was craving food so much that the food master drug me into the kitchen-you know that invisible beast that screams at you from refrigerators or cupboards when they contain chocolate, cookies, or anything tasty to eat). It pulled me into the kitchen for a morning of cooking (fudgy cupcakes, beef brisket for dinner, potato salad, and egg salad for Graces lunch). I was a cooking, tasting, and snacking dynamo. In my kitchen on the counter are said cupcakes frosted in marshmallowy frosting with strawberry slices. I started with 24 cupcakes and we now have 18. Grace and my grandson ate some. I am up to 3 and 1/2...note the discrepancy from the title of this post to now. I had one at 10:30 right after they cooled. the 2 and 1/2 just went down my gullet at rapid pace. My pouch officially holds 2 and 1/2 cupcakes and not one bite more.

I still have two weeks until a fill appointment. Who knows if I need one I am guessing no but after the cold is gone that might change.

I know, I've become a bit hooked on 'what shall I do next time on the blog'. I enjoy the discipline of planning it.
Simone sometimes posts pictures of cupcakes on her blog, and they are so stunning that occasionally I comment, but most of the time I realise that the quicker I navigate away from her lovely pictures the better, because I would end up getting in my car and driving until I could buy cupcakes! (Making them would send me into a hyper because I eat too much of the raw mixture) Some weeks ago she had pictures of chocolate cakes that actually made me go out and buy chocolate. Pathetic to be so suggestive...

Hi, I just found your blog and can't wait to go back and read from the beginning!
I'm also turning 46 this year (in July) and just got banded in January. It is great to see someone else my age going through this. And did I read that you have a grandbaby? I have 3 of them now!

Anyway...enjoyed your entry today about the cupcakes. I can relate!
