1. A few weeks ago, Dan told me that he thought The Hunger Games looked like a stupid movie. I tricked him into seeing it with me through the following conversation:

Me: I have a favor to ask of you, but you probably won't do it.

Dan: What?

Me: Never mind, I know you won't want to, but it would really mean a lot to me if you did.

Dan:  I might, what is it?

Me: I know you will hate it, like really hate it.

Dan: Just tell me what it is

Me: Will you go with me to see The Hunger Games on Friday night?

Dan: Oh, is that all?  Sure, of course.

Muahahahaha.  That is how it is done.

Don’t let the sad waiting in line face fool you.  He stayed awake until 1:30 in the morning to watch that movie, whispering questions to me the entire time.  There was a point where I thought he was going to jump some teenyboppers for talking / giggling / making out behind us.  Then the kid made fun of his side burns and Dan turned around and shut up. 

2. I feel like I have a hint of super powers after eating some Super greens for lunch.  Ka-POW!


3. I take pictures with my food.  A lot.  I just usually have the self control not to post them on here.  


But, how could I resist those cute carrots with the tops still on them?

4. All last week and the beginning of this week I gave up Splenda - cold turkey.  Then, a few days ago, I fell completely off the wagon.  It was in the drawer tempting me at 4:00 every morning.  I think I am going to switch to Stevia and try to use less of it everyday.  We call that a taper in the drug world.

5. This morning I ran an ENTIRE dishwasher load full of Tupperware that either came from the accumulated pile in my car or had food going bad in it in the fridge.  Eww.

6. I didn’t eat anything green for dinner last night.  Dan and I were supposed to grab some sushi before the movie, but through a series of unfortunate events I ate two bowls of cereal, crackers,  and a sonic ice cream cone instead.

The picture of health.

Whew, glad to get all that off my chest. Smile


Other Eats

Breakfast was a two parter.  I am really loving the sliced mango.  Totally worth the extra work of peeling and slicing.


Lunch was leftovers from dinner the night before.  Dan’s grilled to perfection chicken.



Yesterday I bumped through the bump it up treadmill sprint workout over lunch at work.  This kicked my butt and I was a sweaty mess after just 30 minutes.  


Some of my coworkers were staring at me with worried looks on their faces.  They either thought I was going to fall of the treadmill, or that I was going to break the treadmill.  We will never know.


Thought for the day:

Points Breakdown:

Daily points (31) + Activity Points (6) – Eating Points (45) = –8

Weekly Points (49) – Mon (?) – Tues [0] – Wed (2) – Thurs(11) – Fri (8) = 28

  1. I use Splenda EVERY day and have been thinking about giving it up. Is Stevia any better for you?

    We are going to see the movie in 2 hours!!! :)
