My first week of the biggest loser challenge is completed! If I do say so myself, it was really tough but worth it. I lost 5.2 pounds this week and am in 35th place out of 103 players! Booyah!
I rarely use the word hate, as I feel its really really strong. But I'm going to use it today. I hate you, elliptical. I know we have the same goal - banishing the lard - but can't you take it easy on me just a little? No? I didn't think so. Bite me!
My family has been really supportive and has been trying really hard not to tempt me. Well, that was the case until this box of school candy came home, calling my name in all of its chocolaty goodness. Chrisssstina...Chrisssstina.... eat ussssss....we're preciousssss. Did you notice that the box sounds like Gollum too? Creepy.
Hubby and Pi each had a bar. I stared in disbelief and horror. I was drooling to boot. So in desperation, I ran to the kitchen and grabbed this. Thank goodness for Jello. Seriously, this stuff will take most of the craving away when I need a lil sumthin sumthin. Since I've been eating more of it, I've been buying the boxed stuff that you make yourself. Its half the price of the ready jello.
Last night, we went grocery shopping after work. Normally, we go out to eat because neither hubby or I feels like cooking after we get back from shopping. Hubby and Pi wanted Burger King. The panic bells started ringing in my head. RUN, RUN STUPID! I think hubby and Pi noticed the panic and they both assured me that BK has salad. Really? Who knew? So I ordered the garden salad with grilled chicken and no dressing. I ate it while inhaling the french fry fumes and you want to know something? I didn't want the french fries! Maybe there's hope for me yet.
I won't get too excited though, because yodels still look awfully sexy to me.
P.S. - Thanks for the school info Laura. Pi's school is not affected, but the other school in the neighborhood is one that is closing. Its sad, really sad, but the diocese has to do what it can to protect the schools that can stay open.
P.P.S. - You guys convinced me. I'm going to enter the hat in the Vanna contest.
