FATTIE FILES November 2nd, 2010

In terms of work, today was a repeat of yesterday.
10 am (1/2 cup of oatmeal cooked in 1 cup of almond milk) topped with nuts and dried cranberries
11:30 - 2 slices of meat and veggie pizza
2:15 - blueberry banana muffin with orange and Nestea
4:00 - grapes and rice krispie treat
5:00 2 mini chocolate bars
6:00 - chicken breast on whole wheat and small black coffee from Tim Horton's
10 pm - small helping of baked spaghetti (random embarrassing fact: I like ketchup with my spaghetti)

So not so healthy, but I was starving!

Thank goodness I'm done subbing at Regina Open Door Society for the time being. Now I can resume my somewhat normal life.

Hey Jennifer,
I don't want to sound rude here but calling your homepage entry "The Fatty Files" and then eating all that brutally bad food doesn't do much beyond expand your waist line and leave me wondering why you're doing an entry on this when you know that food is so bad for you.

Lose the cashews in your breakfast. They're one of the fattiest nuts you could ever eat.

Lose the pizza, it's loaded with grease and fat because of all that cheese.

The only thing healthy in your 2:15 snack was the orange. Nestea is loaded with sugar and you're drinking a lot of carbs. Muffins are assumed to be healthy but they're carb-loaded and they have added sugar in them.

All in moderation so congrats on only eating two small chocolate bars.

As for the chicken whole wheat sandwich, just be mindful of the carb count on that. It may be whole wheat but it's still a big size. Try to eat smaller sized meals every 2.5-3 hours, unlike the every hour you seem to be eating... 10, 11:30, 2:15, 4, 5, 6, 10. You ate SEVEN times and some of your timing was brutally bad. Try eating like at 10, 12:30, 3, 6, 8:30. Stop eating about 2-3 hours before you go to sleep.

And don't even get me started about your late night 10pm carb overdose meal you indulged in... yikes!

I know you're trying to lose weight but you talk a lot and apparently still don't seem to know how to go about it. I remember when you came to Cheonan and I tried hard to help you out. If you want to disregard my help than so be it but do some web surfing cause at the rate you're going at now, you really need to change your eating habits.

5-6 small meals every 2.5-3 hours a day. Fruits in the morning, veggies in the afternoon, and ease up on your carbs. Be sure to get some more protein in too. You ate chicken but add in some yogurt and eggs.

I know, but I'm honest and don't want to 'pretend' that I'm eating something else. I'm working a full-time and several part time jobs (like real jobs - not the kind of stuff I did in Korea). Unfortunately I won't be able to eat at the times you suggest b/c of my work schedule. So now that one job has stopped I should be able to prepare healthy meals. We shall see ;)

Marc said...

'Not so healthy' is the understatement of the year. You are a far cry from eating healthy.

You said "I'm working a full-time and several part time jobs (like real jobs - not the kind of stuff I did in Korea)." Shit girl, way to bash and discredit yourself and others working in Korea. Who the hell are you tell us here in Korea that we aren't working real jobs. I probably work harder than you do in your comfty Canada. You use to work among us but now you're so better than us, right? I would tell you to eat your words but you're already putting enough shit in your mouth so I doubt you can fit any more into it.

WHAT THE HELL GIRL!!!
I found out about Amy via your homepage and now she's personal training me. She's kicking my butt with training and distroying my bad habits with my eating. I pay that woman good money for her advice and here you are throwing away free advice. What a foolish thing to do. For a smart girl you do some not very smart things.

It's not a matter of pretending anything. It's a matter of getting your priorities in check and making eating healthy a priority in your life. The way I look at it is you really wanted to move to Canada so you put in a lot of hardwork into getting your husband's papers and stuff ready. And as hard as it was, you made it happen because you wanted to make it happen. So when are you going to want to turn your health around because clearly you don't care to do it anytime soon. You are the queen of excuses for not making it a priority. Don't believe me, fair enough, but we all can see it to be true.
I'm pulling for you to turn your ways around but no one can help you until you want to be helped. You're too young to be so unhealthy.

Awww Jenn from a person who has known you well for years beyond Korea, I think it is a tad bit extreme that people are commenting regarding priorites, eating habits and work ethic. For those of you that don't know Jenn and those of you that do I find your comments extremely offensive. People often speak on things they know not much of.....Life here is simply different than life there. No way is right are wrong wat is important is your happiness. You have accomplished sooooo much in all aspects of your life. I am very proud of u.....don't sweat the small stuff friend! You are doing great....there is nothing wrong with the odd chocolate bar or piece of pizza.....to me happiness is not defined by what you eat, how many hours you work or who works harder. Find what makes you happy and disregard anyone who stands in the way of that....you don't have room for negativity in your life....suround yourself by all that is positive....life is to short friend....you are doing great!!!!!

Why am I here??? said...

Thanks FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I'm superior than anyone. I don't think my job is better than anyone. I don't consider myself luckier than anyone. I do think my WORK life is more difficult in Canada. I do think that I got some of the jobs I did in Korea (a.k.a. The Blue House) b/c I was a young white female. I've had recruiters tell me to look as white as possible in my photos b/c workplaces discrimiate. I've had comments on my blog where people tell me I've got it easy in Korea and when I come to Canada then I'll really have to work. So let's make it clear that I'm not bashing YOU working in Korea anoyn. I do think that from my work experience I had it easier in Korea.

I do agree with anoyn #2 about getting my priorities in check. I think the hardest thing in my life in finding BALANCE. Health is ALWAYS the first to slide in my life - even if I know that eating carrots is healthier than chocolate bars. If you are a healthy person tackling your poor eating habbit than I think that's awesome. And......I wish you success for the rest of your life.

But come on ppl, we all make mistakes. I'm not perfect, or claiming to me. I'm posting things on my blog for my Korean family to see, not so it can be ridiculed.

So then if you are all REALLY SO concerned about my health then you'll be happy to know that yesterday I ate TWO healthy meals. So if you are all so eager to bash my poor eating habbits, than perhaps you'll be eagar to congradulate me on eating healthy. Looking forward to those comments.......

Wow. Jennifer already admitted, posts ago, that she's been eating crap and now everyone's telling her she's eating crap. She knows it!

And everyone knows how to eat better. It's not nearly so complicated as Amy makes it. Eat more less-processed food. Eat less more-processed food. Eat when you're hungry. Stop when you're not.

It's not knowledge that stops people from eating well. It's everything else. Duh.

Also, Jen used "I statements" to describe her life in Canada vs her life in Korea and somehow that became judgmental statements on everyone else?

Sounds like some people need to chill the fuck out and grow up. You (Jen) aren't shoving your food down their mouths, and you aren't in charge of their jobs, so what they hell are they jumping on you for?

Anonymous said...

People aren't jumping on her, but they're also not about to jump into her pity party.
They say ignorance can be fixed but stupidity can't. She's clearly flaunting her stupidity and you can't blame people on pointing it out to her. After all, she does have a public blog and does set herself up to be ridiculed.
Oh look at me, I eat shit food and I don't care but oh wait, health has ALWAYS been a top priority for me.
Question, what part of health has been a priority for you -- watching it waste away or what?

Alexis said...

Thanks Amy for the advice, very helpful.

Others, if you think that Amy girl's advice is complicated then you really should question your IQ. I follow her blog and her eating healthy tips are user friendly.

I don't know which is worse, the "nutizens" or the "food police!"

Life is too, too short to not indulge on occasion, especially when countered with the significant stress involved in the big move back and finding not only a great job for yourself, but also being concerned about how your husband will acclimate to not only a new home and country but a new job as well..

Once things are running smoothly and you have a good routine, that's the time to start your next projects. Good luck, and don't let the negative Nellie's spoil your dessert no matter the calorie count.

Why am I here??? said...

Yes John that's the plan. I may even indulge in a second helping of dessert......NOT!

hello anony, to answer your question HEALTH is NOT my main concern at this time, not sure where you got that one since I said in the post above that it's the first to slip when I'm busy. I'd love for it to be but I haven't made it a priority. It's hard adjusting back to life in Canada. I think for me, and many others, comfort food is like a coping mechanism. I am not trying to throw a pity party. "Oh poor me, I'm so fat and I don't know how it happened". Have you been following my blog for awhile? Are you a regular visitor? Did you follow my Fattie Files in Korea? A netizen? A food blogger? It love to stop by your site for a read if you're brave enough to let me. Or better yet, add me to facebook (burtonite@hotmail.com). Really I'm not interested in attacking you, just curious to meet you. Question - will you be brave enough to let me see who you really are?

I'm glad you learned something from Amy Alexis.

Awww poor Jenn! Well at least you know people are reading! lol I wouldn't dare post what I eat! yikes! :P

Anonymous said...

Wow Anonymous your a piece of work. I bit my tongue in the previous post but I'm sorry to say that you need help....help far beyond a nuttitionist. You must not know Jenn ONE bit or you wouldn't say such ignorant shit on her blog. I would advise that you a)Get a life
b)Keep your ever so intriguing advice to yourself.
I would love to challenge you and ask you if you have NEVER ate something that you probably shouldn't have in your entire life?!?! And if you haven't.....to put it bluntly....who gives a shit?!?!?! Most people don't JUDGE others on account of what they put in their mouth....no matter what choic is(good or bad) is a part of everyone's individual right. Is it important to eat healthy....Yes!! But I feel sorry for you if you think that alone defines you as a person. Nobody deserves to be ridiculed on any occasion....especially not someone as amazing as Jenn. I would like to know who said ignorance can be fixed but stupidity can't......because on both grounds you are shit out of luck.
Question, what part of ignorance has been a priority for you -- judging others because you think you are so perfect, or what?!?!

Tanya said...

Haha. I completely agree with everything Sarah said!!! Yes people who have public sites have a chance people would ridicule them but come on. Do you people have nothing better to do but eat carrot sticks and write mean shit on people's blogs?

Obviously you anonymous posters a)DONT have real jobs if you can spend your time ridiculing people's posts b)dont have a life beyond what you put in your stomach. and c)dont have the guts to post your NAME besides your shitty posts.

Just because she eats some crappy food doesnt mean anything, she isnt overweight, she looks amazing in NORMAL clothes from ANY store and she is a good person.

I'd rather have a friend who is calm, caring selfless, doesnt judge people and eats shitty food than having someone who monitors not only everything they eat but what I eat too.

Get off your high horses and stop reading her blog if her NORMAL eating disgusts you.

And Jennifer, I know you dont post all comments that are mean towards your defending friends, but if someone has something to say. BRING IT ON because I'm' not as calm and collected when it comes to people talkin shit bout my friends!
