Blogger Meet Up

When I started this blog I knew I would be putting my business out on front street in order to be accountable for my food choices and running (or lack thereof).  What I never expected was that I would actually make new friends!  But I have. 

I started reading a few blogs and even though the writers might not know me, I definitely know them.  I will find myself telling my sister about what one blogger did during her pregnancy, or telling my friends about how another blogger lost weight.  When I think about it, I feel kind of stalkerish.  Hehehe.

Then there are bloggers that I actually talk to outside of their blog.  Kim and I have become friends and talk in some form almost everyday.  We were *this close* to meeting in Florida, but it didn’t work out.  Yesterday, I met up with Julie, another Weight Watchers blogger, at Ingredient for lunch.

I thought I could help her with a few technical difficulties she was having with her blog.  Turns out, I am not as big of a technology rock star as I thought, but the day wasn’t completely wasted because I made a new friend.

It is funny how we had never met each other, but our few connections made the conversation flow the entire time and before I knew it over an hour had passed.  I had a lot of fun, and I look forward to doing it again soon – with hopefully more success in the technology department. 

Other Food

Breakfast looked and tasted like dessert.  At least it had a banana on it.

I had a pear for a morning snack and carrot sticks for an afternoon snack.

When I got home I immediately roasted some brussel sprouts so I didn’t empty my entire pantry.

After I had dinner in the oven and was waiting for Dan to come home I discovered a very tasty mock pastry snack.  I made one with half the pita, and then had another one because it was so good.

I had originally bought the honey apple butter because Trader Joe’s was out of fig butter, but now I will have to start stocking up with both. 

After the tasty pastry dinner was pretty anti-climatic, except that Dan was finally home.

We enjoyed dinner and a little dessert while catching up on Justified.

A wonderful, relaxing night.

Run

Yesterday I ran 4.5 miles outside with no music.  It was a perfect opportunity to think and get a few things that need my attention mentally sorted out.  Running = quality me time. 

Thought for the day:

Points Breakdown:

Daily points (30) + Activity Points (9)- Eating points (38) = 1

Weekly Points (49) – Mon (0) – Tues (5) –Wed (1) + Thurs (1) = 44

5 servings of fruits and veggies

whole grains when possible

2 servings of dairy

2 tsps of oil

lean protein

limit sugar and alcohol

multivitamin

Water: 100 oz.
