White Out!

Homecoming week.  Today is white out.  Everyone is supposed to wear white from head to toe.  Any idea how hard it is to find white in January?  I managed to come up with a pair of white jeans, white tennies, a white tee shirt and a white long sleeve blouse to wear over it.

Not much going on this morning.  My “treat” for today is going to be coloring my hair this evening.  Believe it or not, it’s difficult to come up with a daily treat that isn’t bad for me.

I watched The Biggest Loser last night for the first time.  Trying to find inspiration and motivation wherever I can.  The show was okay.  I guess you have to watch a few episodes and get to know the people.  I’m going to watch it again next week.

Tomorrow is our monthly potluck.  I’m the “Keeper of the Potluck”.  My job is to pick the date, set out the sign up sheet and run off the crashers.  I usually pick a theme to go with it but most people don’t follow it.  This month, I chose “Healthy Eating”.  Everyone is supposed to bring their favorite healthy dish.  I’m bringing Italian Vegetable Soup (found in my Favorite Recipes category).  It’s not my favorite but it carries well.  I can just bring a crock pot in and it’ll be easy.

Okay…let the day begin!

Can you do a treat more than once? Soaking in the spa for 20 minutes w/nobody bugging me would be something I would treasure day after day after day…

TBL can be inspiring but sometimes it gets too fake. I was gone last night but my hubby taped it for me and I have to say it was a fairly good episode. I like how they try to get the contestants to face their emotional issues b/c if left untreated they’ll put the weight back on. My favorite part is always at the end when they show the progress the voted-off person has made. It reminds me that I can do it…and you can do it, too :)

I watched Biggest Loser for the first time last night too! Ok, not the whole show but I saw the end. I was shocked seeing those people in shorts and tiny tops! Not sure if I was inspired or terrified of what I might become. More to ponder.

Hi Patty! Just a heads up (if you are not already bombarded by their emails) Coldwater Creek online is having a 85% off sale ~ w00t! ~ I ordered a bunch of items from their 80% off sale and was delighted with my savings and my wardrobe boost.

T’would make a nice “treat” for you…

Hey you can watch the first two shows of the biggest loser that you missed on http://www.surfthechannel.com
I don’t have cable because i really don’t watch a lot of tv but the episodes are always uploaded a few days after they air.
Can you share your recipe for the soup??!!
Take care!
Angela
