Default The "GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTT", 7-Day Motivational Thread. Starting 3/12/12

Well good morning my lovelies. I'm back from my little bit of R&R, and of course that means I'm up a few pounds (how Mike can live in Louisiana and not be a great big fat guy is anybody's guess). I thought grocery shopping here in the North was full of landmines, but um, seriously you Southerners have it worse, much worse. One whole aisle (from the cash registers to the far back wall) of the Winn Dixie was like a freshman college course in how to deep fry everything and your mamma. OMG! Now here in Michigan you can easily find a can of creole seasoning, you can even buy spiced dredge and Shakin' Bake, but I've never been in any store that had an entire aisle dedicated to "deep fry" quite like that. Not only did it fill an aisle, it spilled into the area between the aisle end caps and the perimeter meat coolers and was featured adjacent to every sort of raw meat and seafood as well. Even worse, the "fry" aisle was nestled between "beer" on one side and "munchies" on the other. Until last week, I did not know that pork rinds come in different flavors and that more than one company makes them, here in MI we only get "original" and that's if you can find them. Wow, I think I gained a couple of pounds via proximity. Thankfully I didn't have access to a kitchen, alas no "fry" experimenting opportunities for me. But now my DH is jonesing for southern cooking, blessedly he also has to watch his weight and has more will power than yours truly.
