I ate almost a whole bag of Doritos last night, for no reason other than they taste good (and I am stupid).  Woke up this morning with a bellyache and have to go to work.

Someday I will put two and two together and not do this to myself anymore, right?

Movie Popcorn

August 2nd, 2008

Went to see the Dark Knight and got a barrel of popcorn.  Who knew a medium was the size of a garbage can?  Click here to read all about it, and even see a photo of my popcorn (because I am lame and addicted to mobile blogging, heehee).

No Free Smoothie… Damnit!

July 29th, 2008

Went to SB’s and no free smoothie.  The promo is not nationwide.  Oh well.  I bought on anyway.  I had the chocolate banana and it was actually good, considering the low fatness of it.  It was not scrumptious — you could tell it was low cal/low fat.  But it was tasty and I will have it again and I will try the orange mango banana too.

The banana chocolate is 270 calories, 5 g of fat, and has 6 grams of fiber, 21 grams of protein.  The orange mango banana is 250 calories with only 2 grams of fat and has 6 g fiber and 16 g protein.

I’m already too late with this for some of you East Coasters (I think?) but I was told that Starbucks is giving away their new low fat smoothies, Vivanno, from 2 – 4 pm today.  You have to show a gym membership card or a starbucks card.  Smoothies are chocolate banana and orange mango (I think) and have really low fat and have fiber to boot.  I’m definitely going to go try to claim one for myself at 2 pm!  I haven’t done it yet, so I am not 100% sure that it’s a legit deal, but I’m going to go try anyway.  It’s not like I have to go out of my way to get to a Starbucks, we’ve got at least three within 2 miles of my house.

If you score a free smoothie, post and let me know it is a legit deal!

Just so you know…

doritos.jpgI just ate half a bag of Flaming Hot Doritos.  Not a little snack bag… but not the family sized bag either.  The regular big bag of doritos.  Half.  Of the Bag.  By myself.  After dinner.  When I was not even hungry.

I thought you would want to know.

Oh, my bad… they’re buffalo, not flaming.  Pardon my dorito faux passe.

DH and DD9 had ice cream and I did not have any.  Do I get points for that?

cinnamon-roll.jpgI just ate a cinnamon roll the size of my head for dessert.  With cream cheese on top.

zen.jpgSomehow, I don’t know how it happened, but somehow my beloved Creative Zen Vision:M mp3 player turned into a brick.  Overnight.  Weird how that happens.  I am such a fickle pickle.  I am slipping into my danger zone as we speak.  I neeeeeeed a new mp3 player.  Neeeeeeeeed it as a matter of my health and well being.  I’ll be able to run faster and longer if only I had something tiny and sleek, like maybe a Nano.  Maybe in pink.  Or red.  I know that I will immediately lose 10 pounds if only I purchase this immediately.  And I’ll be eternally happy and won’t ever need anything new ever again…. if only I just buy this one thing RIGHT NOW.  Part of my brain knows that this is a sickness, but the rest of my brain is telling that part to sit down and shut the hell up or a smack down will be coming.  And then that brain majority is chanting BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT.  And I really have no choice but to obey, do I?  I mean, not really.  Because I really do neeeeeeed it.

Cookies Are Evil.

June 20th, 2008

cookies.jpgDD9 was in a play tonight after being in vocal/drama camp all week long.  Today was the last day of camp with a big performance tonight.  To celebrate, I took bought cupcakes for all of the camp kids, and a box of beautiful gourmet cookies for the teachers.  I dropped off the cupcakes at lunchtime, and forgot the cookies in the car.  So the cookies came home with me.  And now I think I’m going to hurl.

I’ve been munching on the damned cookies all day long, and this evening and now apparently I’ll be munching them all night long because I am a weak, weak, weak person who has no willpower and cannot say no to cookies no matter how much I don’t want to be fat and want to be thin and want to be the kind of person who doesn’t go “mmmmm cookies” and eat the whole freaking box.

In addition to eating all the cookies, there were treats at the play.  Of course I ate treats at the play.  Then I decided to go for a run when we got home, so I went into my room to put on my running clothes, but accidentally put my pj’s on instead and got in bed with my laptop.  Oops.

I can hear the chanting in my head … fatty, fatty, two by four, can’t fit through the kitchen door.

bodibeat.jpgI was thinking about getting a heart rate monitor, so started researching and found this Yamaha Bodibeat.  It’s an mp3 player that is also a heart rate monitor.  In monitor mode, it will match the tempo of your music with your desired heart rate, i.e. play a faster song if your heart rate is slow or player a slower tempo song if your heart rate is too high.  There’s another mode that matching the tempo of the music with your pace via the pace counting feature.  And after your workout, you can download the info from the device to your PC and see your running stats.  It will also function as a regular mp3 player to listen to your own playlists etc.  How cool is that?  Or am I just a geek with disposable income?

frito3.jpgMy daughter made this tonight.  Imagine the deliciousness of a Take 5 bar, then imagine a big pan full of it in your house whispering your name in a Siren’s Song kind of way.  Then imagine your ass getting bigger and bigger as you snarf down the deliciousness like a wart hog.  No, wait, you don’t have to imagine that part because it’s really happening.  Damn.
