Daily Recap

Breakfast - 1 Greek Peach Yogurt, 1 Chocolate Chip Muffin, 1 Lemon-Poppyseed Mini-Muffin, 1 Dark Chocolate Hershey's Mini
Lunch - None
Dinner - 1 Large Papa Murphy's Pizza on DeLight Crust - Spinach, Tomatoes, and Chicken
Dessert - 1 Jell-O Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup
Beverages - Iced Tea and Water

Activity - 1 5K in about 33 Minutes.

Highlights -

Ran in the Honker 5K this morning - best time ever but still dead last (that's probably hyperbole, but not by much!). I will not be running with the Pierre Area Running Club anytime soon. I would do nothing but slow them down.

Caught The Office and Community today. I expect Angela's pregnancy was planned, while Pam's had to be written in. I'm sorry we missed Angela and the Senator's wedding though - maybe we'll get some flashbacks! I can't wait to see how Community shakes out- the Annie/Jeff allusions were terribly overt and that is my ship. Britta as a therapist is horribly funny. I'm pretty sure Abed is retreating more into the world of television in a very dangerous way- makes me wonder if he's had more communication with his mother. An intervention may be necessary.

I borrowed The Other Guys from the library and watched it. It was funnier than I thought it was going to be.

I still need to catch up with the rest of my shows. I still want to see The Playboy Club, among other things. I need to explore all the sites and see which episodes are available for streaming. TV's a lot more work now that I don't have DVR.

Yesterday's Daily Recap

Breakfast - 1 Banana
Lunch - 1 Bowl of Oatmeal with Cranberries
Dinner - 1 Healthy Choice Orange Chicken Cafe Steamer
Beverages - Iced Tea and Water

Activity - 45 Minutes of H20 Kickboxing

Highlights -

I very much wanted chocolate chip cookies at bedtime. This weekend is going to be tough. I may break down and get some ice cream! (Totally justified though, the weather's not going to be nice for much longer.)

I watched Doctor Who - finally. I don't think we've seen the last of Amy and Rory, though I would like the show to explore post-companion life a bit. Seriously, what are they going to do know that they're not traveling all of space and time. Rory still has his career, but Amy was a Kiss-O-Gram girl. Oh well, they still have to deal with the whole Melody/River thing, plus the Doctor's death in Nevada. No way he's really going to die.

I started reading Fluke by Christopher Moore - so far so good. I'm hoping the whole "stuck inside a whale" thing makes more sense as the story goes on. Also, I'm pretty sure Amy is going to turn out to be some iteration of Amelia Earhart.

Daily Recap

Breakfast - 1 Banana
Lunch - 1 Bowl of Oatmeal with Cranberries
Pre-Bowling Dinner - 1 Healthy Choice Pineapple Chicken Cafe Steamer
Post-Bowling Dinner - 1 Lean Cuisine BBQ Chicken Pizza
Beverages - Iced Tea and Water

Activity - 3.25 Miles in 41 Minutes; 3 Games of Bowling


Bowling Scores - 129, 118, and 102

I watched The New Girl on itunes while eating lunch. That show was 13 minutes of painful, cringing, godawful crap with about 10 minutes of genuine comedy. There are a couple of characters I liked, Zooey Deschanel's was not one of them. They get rid of her and Schmidt (Barney Stinson wannabe) and they may have a good show. I'll give it one more chance, if it doesn't improve I'll cut it from the team.

Because - I don't want to be the fat bitch at the next family reunion (2013). It's enough to just be a bitch.

Highlights -

Hawaii Five-0 - I KNEW the baby wasn't Danno's! I wasn't surprised that the team got back together, however seeing Jenna with Wo Fat was disconcerting. I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes.

Castle - If Castle and Beckett don't get their shit together this season, I'm calling shenanigans. Time to fish or cut bait!

How I Met Your Mother - I was totally thinking of Victoria when Robin brought up the "timing and chemistry" thing! I'm happy to see them revisiting the relationship - even if she's not the Mother. I loved Barney and Robin's dance number and drunk Marshall was a delight.

Daily Recap

Breakfast - 1 Strawberry Yogurt
Lunch - 1 Bowl of Oatmeal with Dried Cranberries
Dinner - 1 Bowl of Fruit and 1 Healthy Choice General Tso's Chicken
Dessert - 1 Dark Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Cup
Beverages - Iced Tea, Water, 1 Can of Diet Coke

Activity - 60 minutes of Zumba/Strength at the Y

Today's Highlights:

I did NOT eat any of the M&M's even though they live on our file cabinet.

Otherwise it was a very boring day at work. I had the reference staff meeting as well as the collection development committee meeting. I did my regular two hours at the desk and didn't get anything else accomplished today. At some point they are going to figure out that I don't do a whole lot. I'm hoping to get out before that happens.

At lunch today I got one load of laundry in the washer and cleaned off the quesadilla maker from last night's dinner. I still need to get the pizza stone cleaned off.

Free time today consisted of reading Castle fanfiction on Tomorrow I'm going to check and see which premier's are available online.

I'm hoping Hawaii Five-O will be up, I'm still have a lot of anger from the season finale. I'm willing to concede that Rachel may have been acting under duress. It entirely possible that Stan was in cahoots with Wo Fat and she was trying to get Danny and Grace away from them. I'm still pissed that Danny slept with her even though she's married to someone else- it's a shitty thing to do and I thought better of him. I'm not convinced that Rachel is actually pregnant, and even if she is, we don't really KNOW that it's Danny's.

Diet Fail

Because I managed to gain 15 pounds since my vacation in February, next week (specifically Monday, September 19) the crackdown begins- mainly because I don't want to deal with buying bigger pants, or dig the old ones out of my closet. I will again be posting my eating/exercise habits on this blog. If anyone was actually reading this, I would apologize for the return of the food diary. This method worked really well for me in the past, so I'm going back to it.
