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!
