Goodness who else watched TBL?! I’ll get into my day’s recap before I discuss TBL.
Yesterday was a good day overall, obviously went to work- which was very busy yesterday, and on my lunch break went down to Michael’s with a coworker and got some more yarn- they were having a sale so I got more yarn for the afghan I’m making my sister and then got some yarn for scarves I’m almost done with my mom’s scarf yay! I’m sending out her Christmas Presents this weekend so that she should get it in time for Christmas. After work I got home and tidied up, actually went and lay down for a bit cuz I had a headache, I took ibuprofen and after a while felt okay. Got up and started using my knifty knitter Funny thing was the fids were afraid of it so for a change I did it in peace They just played together on their cage which is FINE BY ME! lol. I made dinner which was that active lifestyle pasta with ragu sauce- I think I used the garden vegetable one. And of course grated parmesan cheese (yum). Hubby LOVES pasta so he gobbled it up and didn’t say a word against it- didn’t even complain about the noodles. I didn’t pair it with any salad or anything cuz I didn’t feel like it lol. I’d had a large salad for lunch earlier in the day so I wasn’t worried and I didn’t want to push it with hubby lol. My sister did make herself a small side salad to go with hers. Then after dinner cleaned up, did the dishes, and went back to my knifty knitting. I am really happy with my purchase- the knifty knitter only cost me $8! My husband was calling me a cheater lol- I was like leave me ALONE it’s not cheating it’s being efficient :p I didn’t work out yesterday cuz I really want to crank out my projects. I’ve got 4 scarves to do and my sister’s blanket to finish ALL by christmas! *faint* But today I will work out first thing Today when I get home I have to take hubby’s car in because there is still an issue with the tire and fender. Then when I get home I’m going to work out, make dinner (I’m thinking something with peas- I’m CRAVING peas), then shower and knifty knit the rest of the night lol.
Okay back to TBL! First of all, I thought everyone looked great. I was very proud of them all. Sean got so CUTE! And then when Tracey came out I was like WOW! She looked amazing. And Abby I thought looked wonderful, I was so happy for her and hope she finds happiness. She overcame so much, I admire her strength to keep on living despite her loss. Antoine and Alexandra were so cute and I was guessing he was going to propose to her on the show- and when he did I still cried with them and was like say yes! lol. I’m pretty sure those two ladies hugging were their mothers lol. And OMG Julio?! TALK ABOUT STUD- I was like oh goodness hello Latin LU-VAH! He was so suave and debonaire! I thought he was going to win until I saw Rebecca- I was like omg who is that supermodel?! Though I won’t lie I liked the brown color better than the blonde. And maybe it’s just me but part of me felt like she was being a sore winner- running around the stage and jumping into people’s arms. I always felt her little celebration dance was a little over the top honestly. And are her and Daniel still dating? I thought it odd at the end she ran and jumped on Sean and not Daniel- but that’s just me. I thought Shay did well also- but she still has a ways to go sadly. I was like dude it sucks to lose a whole person and STILL be overweight But she definitely has motivation to keep going!
With the final three I knew Amanda had no chance- out of all the contestants she was pretty low on the totem poll. I mean 9 of the people who went home did better than her percentage-wise. But whatever- yay for her- I still think she’s a whiner :p
Danny and Rudy OMG totally impressed me- when I saw Rudy I was like he looks great- then when I saw Danny I was like omg TOTAL transformation! And when he won I was very glad. I wanted him to win At the end it looked like his wife and family had also lost weight- good for them!
I don’t know if I’ll watch next season though- two hours at a time is too much- I think that show can be cut down to 1 hour honestly. And online that seems to be most people’s complaints- that the show is just too long.
Anyways- I’m off to read blogs and then get work done Have a good day everyone!
