Day 129: Mamma Mia!, M&Ms and 119… Again

So I thought House Bunny was CUTE! Silly? Yes. Critically acclaimed? No. But that’s okay! Escapism is fab. I even stayed up way too late and watched Mamma Mia!, too. I really liked it. I think Meryl Steep and Amanda Seyfried were amazing – together and as individuals. I think Amanda may be one of my favorite little actresses; she’s so REAL and naturally pretty and who knew she could sing, too? Wow! Anyway, it was cute, wish I’d slept more, but I enjoyed it. At the end of the day I had 1,547 calories, 212 carbs and 44 fat grams – at the top end again!! Here’s what I ate.

Since I was at the event all day yesterday it was pretty uneventful. I was able to sleep in some and it was, surprisingly, a pretty mild day. They did have TONS of food back in the green room, but I tried to keep it light with a turkey sandwich (mustard/tomato only) and a half bag of BQ chips. I did give in later and eat a pack of peanut m&ms (not fun size, people) – but it was okay because I was running around all day and it was the only snack I’d had so I knew I’d be fine. Why not treat myself? I skipped the mac&cheese, chicken fingers, cookies, brownies, king-size snack bars – you name it – so a bag of peanut m&ms I could track seemed tame! Hehe I got home and it hit me how tired I was – thankfully I’d already made dinner on Tuesday (the tomato basil pasta bake) so I simply grinded half an English muffin, sprinkled it on top and popped it in the oven for 15 minutes. While it was cooking I cooked Austin a lunch for Friday (the trader joe’s red curry sauce with bell pepper, white rice and chicken). Apparently the food in Mexico was AWFUL, BAD, like his company isn’t going back, so he had lost weight! Haha After cooking Austin came home right in time for dinner – YAY!!! I had down shoulders, triceps, and bicep ST at home but I didn’t do it – or anything for that matter. Just watched a movie and the BCS game and passed out!! At the end of the day I had 1,506 calories, 186 carbs and 45 fat grams – good day! (especially since I had so much bad crap – eek!). Here’s what I ate.

I have A LOT to do today… I hope I can do it all (probably can’t do 5 miles, chest, back, abs and all of that ST from yesterday!) so I’m going to readjust my plan! Tonight we’re going to a couple’s game night, tomorrow is house hunting then out to a bar in midtown with friends – should be a fun, packed weekend (probably a high day tonight and tomorrow if I had to guess!). I’m going to try to get to the gym tomorrow either before houses or between houses & bar – we’ll see!! Oh – this morning I weighed 119 again – blah – seriously? I’m so inpatient. And I left my iPhone at home – ARGH! There goes listening to my book, talking to peeps, etc. NO FUN. K I’m out - I hope you all have FAB weekends – “see” you soon!

Pissy: Right – I loved the clothes, too! So classic. And the scenery was amazing!! I hope you have a fun weekend, too!

Eurydice: Really?! I’ll have to check it out and focus on that – maybe I was so mesmerized by the whole and didn’t notice some bad parts. Like I’d heard Pearce’s singing was a joke (and was prepared to think so) but it didn’t bother me! I drank the kool-aid!

Kelly: I know it! Especially when phones do EVERYTHING now! It was a tough day!
