Eggnog lattes.

Wine and cheese.

Deli meats.

Poutine on DBF’s new ship.

McD’s on the run.

White Russians.

I think it’s good we’re going home tomorrow!!


Travelling is bad for any sort of healthy eating. Yes, I have opportunity to be a good girl, but I just don’t wanna. I have the best intentions when I set out, but alas, they don’t seem to follow through.

I’m OK with it for now though.

I keep hoping for a salad but so far it hasn’t happened. Tomorrow’s not looking good either as we have a big surf n turf night out planned.

Maybe Friday.


Poor DBF was soooo sick today. He just felt rotten all day and no amount of Gravol or anything would help. I felt like such a helpless nurse…couldn’t really do anything for him.

My timetable was all out of whack today. I got up early, but didn’t get straight to work because it’s sort of a US holiday. I decided to start watching the What Not to Wear marathon, and worked from the couch until I couldn’t sit like that anymore. Then I showered and sat at my desk, and wouldn’t you believe it….I was so much more productive that way!

But, my eating timetable and plan was basically non-existant.

B = coffee, cashew bar (3)
L = leftover Chop Suey (3)
S = twizzlers (1)
S = Cheezies (5)
D = cream of mushroom soup, grilled cheese sandwich, ginger ale (12)

And I’m going to eat more Cheezies while I sit on the couch. DBF went back to bed and I’m bored. At least I know what I’m doing!!

We ate out again last night. There may have been a baked lasagna. It was soooo good. It was a comfort food sort of thing. I don’t even want to know the points.

DBF may have snuck a bag of chocolate chip cookies into the shopping basket. I may not have stopped him. There may have been a mitfull of cookies with the tea last night.

This has got to stop!!

Today’s plan:

B = tea, All Bran bar, apple (3)
L = tuna salad on whatever crackers are in the cupboard, Healthy Request chicken noodle soup (6)
S = tea, cashew bar (3)
D = Chop Suey from ESBM (6)
S = let’s not kid ourselves….there will be more cookies! but this time I WILL LIMIT MYSELF TO TWO (4)

We shall not mention yesterday’s menu. It was raining. I was sick. I worked late. There were no groceries in the cupboard. We ate out….it was yummy, but it wasn’t pretty. Oh, and there are officially no chocolate chip cookies left.

Today, I’m still sick…but at least the sun is shining for now….so maybe if I don’t have to work past 5:00 today I might actually get some groceries and make us something healthy for din-din.

B = coffee (ya I know….but we had our house inspector dude coming today and I didn’t have time) (1)
L = sunflower flax toast w/ pb & honey, Gala apple (7)
S = baked Tostitos w/ salsa (2)
D = TBD, but I’m hoping to make a Thai Pork Noodle dish & steamed veggies…(8-10)
S = popcorn (2)

Wooohooo!!! I love it when I get tagged in these things….let’s me know that one of you lovely readers is thinking of me! Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!

In this particular case, I was tagged on each of my blogs, so I am posting the same thing on each of them. So both girls get a couple of link tags…hehehe…. Thanks to Wheebles and Bri @ Skinnify!

Here are the rules (according to Bri there’s only 5 things!):
Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog (some random, some weird). Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs and then let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Things you might not know about me:

1) As I’ve gotten older I’ve developed a strange attraction to the color pink. Not pale, ballerina pink. But more like a fuschia sex-kitten pink. When I’m trying to decide colors, if that’s an option it’s a no brainer. I even see it in my mind’s eye when I fantasize about my future wedding. I think it has a lot to do with too many episodes of Sex in the City.

2) I grew up an only child with a single parent. This makes me strangely independant, bossy, and anal about having things MY WAY. It makes for interesting living arrangements with other people. haha. But I wouldn’t have it any other way because it also makes me best friends with my Mom.

3) I make bad jokes when I’m nervous or uncomfortable. Unfortunately I’m nowhere near as witty as Chandler Bing, otherwise that might be a cool thing.

4) I joined Weight Watchers because I was bored. I had recently started dating DBF and he had to go away for work for 2 months, so I decided to try “dieting” as something to do. Glad I learned that it’s not just a hobby!! But at least my “hobby” has turned into a healthier lifestyle.

5) I like to work out to Bon Jovi and Guns n Roses. There’s one CD at my kickboxing gym that I just love and it has Welcome to the Jungle on it. However, I would probably cringe if I had to listen to it under any other circumstance!

OK, there you have it. Now I am tagging Julie, Jen, Mouse, Mrs. Furious, and of course… The Duv. (YaYa, I know most of you have already done it, but you are the ones that I love…so that’s just the way it is!)

So last night there may have been some instant mashed potatoes and Bisquick biscuits with the chili….but I cut my chili portion way down so it wasn’t so bad…honest!! However, those chocolate chip cookies that I’d been promising DBF may have made their way into my tummy with a cup of tea too…. 🙂

Oh well, today is a new day….

B = McD’s sausage McMuffin (no egg) & hashbrown (DBF decided to surprise me!)
L = leftover chili
S = pear
D = don’t know yet, but I’m planning a huge pile of steamed veggies with it!

A = not much, I’m sick AGAIN!!
