So, clothes (or sew).  Here’s the sitch, or should I say here’s the stitch (haha, love a good, or bad, pun!) Everything I have been wearing has been way too tight.  I was too broke to upsize my wardrobe, that, as well as refusing to do it.  Now that I am down about 42 lbs. everything is baggy.  I have a limited stash of smaller sized clothes and once those are too big I will definitely have to spend a little bit of money to get a few things that fit better until I am closer to my goal.  I’m still broke, but I know that eventually I am going to need things in my size.  I’m wondering if I can get nominated for WNTW and have Stacy and Clinton help me pick out a new skinny wardrobe 🙂  I will worry about that when I get there, but wouldn’t that be fun?!  I <3 that show, it’s such fun to watch.

I had a great morning workout today, which is surprising because I usually despise the morning ones.  It’s getting so fetching cold outside so I get in that in-between stage where I start out freezing but as I’m working, I’m sweating my ass off.  So I’m hot/cold!  It’s such a strange sensation.  Anyway, I started off by jogging the entire first mile of my route today, which is great because I haven’t jogged that far for a little over 2 years, so I was very pleased with that.  I have a really bad knee that has bothered me since a high school soccer injury and every once in awhile it pops/clicks a lot.  Well, after I finished the first mile jog and started to walk for awhile the popping began.  I have to walk strange to get the popping to stop because it feels like my bones are grinding together when it clicks and pops like that.  It doesn’t hurt necessarily but it bothers me alot and I’m afraid it’s damaging my knee.  So finally after a bit of walking I went back to jogging because it doesn’t do it when I’m jogging.  It hasn’t happened for over a month so it’s not that big of a deal but when it does happen it is so annoying.

I made the most amazing spicy green beans last night.  Or as my boss calls them, Harry Cotverts.  Omgosh that was the funniest thing I’ve ever heard.  Last time he took us to lunch (he usually does this about once every other month) at Kona Grill and as he was perusing the menu said “What are Harry Coverts?  They come with almost every dish!”  I almost spit out my iced tea, I could NOT stop laughing!  Anyway.  Last week I had purchased a jumbo bag of haricot verts from Costco.  We used about half the bag and last night I decided I needed to cook the other half of the bag before they spoiled.  I snipped the ends off and threw them all on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet (easy clean-up!) and drizzled them with 1 1/2 tsp of EVOO, sprinkled them with salt and pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes.  Baked them at 425 for probably 15 minutes (sorry I didn’t pay closer attention!) stirring once during cooking.  My kids were at their dad’s but they probably would have been a bit too spicy for them, but for me?  Perfection.  I ate half last night and packed up the other half with some tofu for lunch today.  Heavenly!

I can’t believe it is only Wednesday.  This feels like the looooooooooooongest week ever.  TOM finally came on full force today so I feel quite crappy.  I’m hoping it’s a quicky though.

Does anyone have any plans for Thanksgiving weekend?  My family decided that the adults all needed a night out so Friday night after Thanksgiving we are going to a college football game.  My Gma will be down from Washington and she’s going to go with us too!  It will be cold, but fun!  I’m so excited, I can’t wait.  I think that’s why this week seems so long, because I am looking too forward to my days off next week!
