My Worst Nightmare

 Over the weekend, Dan and I were watching some football, and the new Passat commercial came on.

I couldn't find a video, but it pretty much shows a guy putting all the items in his garage on his lawn to make room for his new car and says, "Reclaim your garage."

Yikes. That is the scariest thing I have seen in a while.  I literally screamed a few times during the commercial.  Of course, Dan was sitting next to me laughing.

Let's just say that the items in / organization of our garage causes a bit of tension in our relationship.  I want a neat and tidy garage, so if I need something like a hammer or duct tape I can find it in under an hour.  Dan, on the other hand, wants a full garage.  A garage full of his treasures, like old road signs, things that don't run (but should), and anything else he finds on the side of the road.

When we moved from a one car garage to a three  car garage I thought that we would finally have room for everything, but Dan just saw that as an opportunity to find more treasures.  Bless his heart.


OK, I admit, our garage isn't that full.  But, it would be if I didn't secretly put things in the trash after Dan leaves for work.  Hehehe.

Breakfast (5): two hard boiled eggs and toast with a smidgen of fruit spread

Yesterday, I made the best salad in the world even better by buying my own ground chicken and searing up six miniature patties (2 points each).

Then I put the tahini, vinegar, and sriracha in a little container and the lettuce, goat cheese, and chicken in a big container.  There you have it, salad of champions, to-go style.

Lunch / Snacks (12): salad of champions (6), yogurt (3), fiber bar (3), apple (0), and carrots (0)

When I got home from work I had to work some more, so Dan was in charge of dinner.  He "Danified" the stuffed cabbage casserole.  The part on the left without the cheese was mine, but I ended up taking some of the cheese too.  A few of Dan's friends were over to play pool, and we all gobbled it right up.  I would highly recommend it.  Click *here* for the recipe

Dinner (15) Stuffed Cabbage Casserole
 After dinner I ate dessert and watched The Bachelor.  Ugh, now I am hooked and will be forced to watch the rest of the season. :)

Dessert (10): Rice kirspies with almond milk
and bananas and one banana oat chocolate muffin (not pictured)

Yesterday morning I ran 4.5 miles while watching Pan Am.  Thank goodness regular TV shows have returned.  I also see new episodes of Castle and Glee in my future.

Here's to a great day!

Thought for the day:

Daily points (33) + work out points (9) - eating points (42) = 0  Even Steven.
