baby it's cold outside...

I skipped class to write a paper for Thursday night. And go grocery shopping.

I still love grocery shopping. I get super excited going up and down the aisles planning out meals. I made it about 2.5 weeks before I went again for a big trip. I ALWAYS wish I had more money to spend and more POINTS to eat. I find new foods that I didn't know existed. Weight Watchers now makes 1 POINT chocolate cookies and I think I died and went to heaven. That's what I'll eat for dessert with a glass of skim milks.

I made a delicious dinner of pico de gallo and fresh spinach sauteed with shrimp over ISRAELI Couscous (which is serious and seriously yummy) and some real 50% less fat bacon bits.

My Sunday was spent helping Adam carry wood he cut down and stack the logs. Big heavy logs. Uphill. Woot woot. My biceps (I have them, didn't you know?) are still a little tender, if you will.

I gained .4 this week. I may have figured out what has caused the recent uppages over the last month. A few weeks ago, I bought a travel coffee mug. This now meant I could drink coffee to go and not just at home. Because I still liked my routine of coffee during breakfast, I have nearly doubled my coffee consumption each day. Double coffee = double coffee mate = POINTS I wasn't counting. This week, I will actually count a POINT for my precious coffee and see how I fare. It's one less thing to eat but I need my coffee fix, especially since I quit the cigarettes.

Thank you and goodnight.

Im always amazed how much MORE SORE I get from real life stuff like the logs and NOT say bicep curls (sad but true)

now. do you really think it is the coffee mate? or could it just me water you can peeee out?

sodium related.

I'm with MizFit on the coffee comment. Try drinking more water, unless you're drinking coffee mate with a bit of coffee.

Hey sounds like we have a chef in the house! I get excited about food shopping too, but I never cook properly for myself. I could wander round gazing for hours though. Meal sounds awesome, you gonna come round and make my tea (this is a British word that mean dinner)?

My blathering is shameful, really.

But PLEASE do videos! So much fun! Plus I won't be the only one.

I heart grocery shopping...love it! And yesterday I helped a friend move and I'm SO sore today in places that regular exercise doesn't touch.

I agree with the water, 64oz isn't always enough depending on your activity level.
