Hot Diggity Dog!

Okay, so I decided NOT to write about the move from hell...maybe later. The thought of writing about my horrific nightmare made me cringe every time I looked at my laptop. For now, I want to put that disaster behind me. 

Plain and simple, I fell of track, and I seem to find myself eating more junk than normal. I know the stress from the move threw me into an abyss of atrocious eating coupled with no daily workouts. I saw some old ugly habits rear their head: 

  • eating out
  • eating without thinking and making bad choices
  • not tracking my food intake 

And Saturday, for some strange reason I craved a corn dog. I considered Sonic as a solution to my  craving, but I told my inner saboteur...NO! But then the thought occurred to me...DUH, make your own corn dog! AND I did.

Hot Diggity Corn-Dogs!
1 box of Jiffy Cornbread Mix
1 egg
1 cup 1/3 milk
Hebrew National Hot Dogs

Break it down:

  1. Make the corn bread mix according to the directions on the box.
  2. Cut the hot dogs.
  3. Spoon the corn bread mixture into the wells of the Redi Set Go.
  4. Add a piece of hot dog to each well.
  5. Close the top on the Redi Set Go and cook for 7 minutes. 
  6. BAM!

So, my plan to find my way back...take my weight loss endeavor one day at a time. Today I exercised for the first time in over a week and a half...ZUMBA!!!!!! Zumba gave me the opportunity to pop and drop it like it's hot! Tomorrow I look forward to more hip poppin FUN! 

I also set two small goals for this week:

  • Drink at least six 8 oz. glasses of water
I'm off like a dirty shirt. I need to focus on getting at least 8 hours of sleep. I read an article today in Newsweek stating a lack of sleep leads to weight gain. The article reinforced something I already knew...G'Night!


  1. Your goals for the week are simple and to the point. I think that they are very doable and you should have no problem. All the best!

  2. Love, Love, Love Zumba!!
    Even though you haven't been to the gym I bet that you got a lot of exercise from moving!

  3. Those corn dogs look yummy. And really, really smart to come up with a way to fit them into your plan.

    I really want to try Zumba but I'm too cheap to join a gym (and it would take too much time away from my kids).

  4. moving is exercise- so don't think you didnt burn a few of those meals out off! :) Yum to the corn dogs, YEAH for the zumba class- YOU GO GIRL! :)

  5. Sorry to hear that the move didn't go so well. Good luck with your goals.

  6. Fantastic goals. And a yummy recipe too. Did you put the points in there? I have to go back and look.

  7. Those look freaking awesome!

  8. Glad to hear your finally move in. :) Moving is always so stressful, why can't it be a stress free adventure. But whenever other people are involved, it's just out of your control. Those corndogs look really good. I still haven't invested in one of those redi set go machines yet.

  9. Everytime I read a post or comment of yours I think about you "missing your calling as a stripper" and this was no different! LOL. I haven't been to Zumba in a while...you're making me miss it!

  10. Hello! I just joined your blog - the comments you left on my "Can You Really Lose Weight Eating This?" made me smile :) I'm actually eating a low sugar/glycemic/carb "diet" which isn't a diet for me at all because of the diabetes. This is the only way to keep my insulin and sugar in check :) I've already lost 6 lbs eating "those" foods and I think it's just crazy that it works.

    Anyhoo-thanks for stopping by!
