Hello All! I hope everyone had a fun & relaxing Labor Day!!! My weekend was nice...I rested a little and ate some good food and of course, I enjoyed the Alabama football game...
It was so nice to be watching Alabama play again...it was also nice to start the year off winning 48-3. Next week will definitely be more of a challenge because we are playing Penn State...I am even more pumped about that game. It was also cool because it was a night game so it wasn’t too hot. I have been at some pretty hot games before but luckily both of our first home games are at 6 and then we are away for the next two weeks so I bet we won’t have a really hot game...and that is DEFINITELY a plus. If you’ve never been to a middle of the day, Alabama game in September, consider yourself lucky because they are MISERABLE.
Anyway-I didn’t do too terribly bad with food...I didn’t go out of the scope that I outlined for myself so that’s always good. When I weighed Saturday morning, I was only down a pound which still means I have 1.2 left before I get to 75. It is going to be a very tough week. We have a lot of work functions going on as I mentioned last week. The festivities started today at lunch when everyone went to Mellow Mushroom...I did OK...I had a piece of cheese pizza and a salad and didn’t eat everything...I just hate feeling out of control and not knowing exactly what things are...there is also a dinner planned tonight, birthday celebrations tomorrow and a team building event on Thursday afternoon that will include cake and fried food. According to the rules I laid out last week, I can’t participate in anything unless I’m down 75 so we will see how it goes...I will weigh in the morning...I will be a little loose the next couple of days but I really have no room for cheating on my agenda...we will just have to see...I am way too motivated at this point to screw up too bad but it still sucks not to participate...I will work out some sort of compromise in my head.
I sort of cheated and made the recipe for the blog last week since I knew I probably wouldn’t have time last night...
It was a potato & bacon pie. I know it sounds odd but really it tasted like mashed potatoes with bacon added. It was great. It made 8 servings at only 3 points per serving. It was filling and also made several leftovers. I would make it again but I would probably choose to make it as a side dish rather than the main meal because it doesn’t provide much diversity on the plate. It was quite tasty though.
I am very excited to announce the “Kaleidoscope Heart,” is out today...
This is the new album from Sara Bareilles...I’ve already listened a few times...I LOVE her! So, what I’m trying to say is that you should rush out and get it and if you don’t like her...well...poo on you.
I think that was it for today...wish me luck with the food challenges I’m facing this week...I’m sure I will have a report at the end of the week!
Have a good one! Bye!
“Hello you long shots
You dark horse runners
Hairbrush singers, dashboard drummers
Hello you wild magnolias
Just waiting to bloom
There's a little bit of all that inside of me and you
Thank God even crazy dreams come true
I stood at the bottom of some walls I thought I couldn't climb
I felt like Cinderella at the ball just running out of time
So I know how it feels to be afraid
Think that it's all gonna slip away
Hold on, hold on
Here's to you free souls, you firefly chasers
Tree climbers, porch swingers, air guitar players
Here's to you fearless dancers, shaking walls in your bedrooms
There's a lot of wonder left inside of me and you
Thank God even crazy dreams come true
Never let a bad day be enough
To go and talk you in to giving up
Sometimes everybody feels like you
Oh, feels like you, just like you.” Crazy Dreams-Carrie Underwood
