Days 195 & 196: A Total Daze

Yeah…. These last few days have been SUCH a blur! And my TOM has been STARVING for crap. Sad. Here’s the last two days in a nutshell.
Monday

  • I had 1,658 calories, 200 carbs and 45 fat grams.
  • I walked 5.5 miles (no strength training).
  • We sent another counter to the seller for the inspection amendment (who is going to fix what).
  • I was tired and didn’t want to cook anything.
  • All I wanted to do was eat crap.
  • I watched the Secret Life of the American Teenager hehe – cute back story!
  • I read lots of Over Her Dead Body – loving it.
  • Here’s what I ate.

Tuesday

  • I had 1,539 calories, 263 carbs and 32 fat grams.
  • I walked 3.5 miles (no strength training).
  • I watched Gossip Girls (oooh so good!), One Tree Hill (awful as usual – love it!), Castle (are you watching this new show? I love it!) and some of the Biggest Loser.
  • I tried a new recipe – Crab & Blackbean burritos from Hungry Girl…. Austin loved them… I didn’t…. I think I’m just not a crab eater. So he ate both of ours and I had cereal and my TOM had crap.
  • I found two new websites with TONS of great recipes – WOOT! I’m going to try a few next week.
  • One of my good friends found out she was pregnant – YAY! I'm so very happy for her!!!
  • One of my good friends found out she was laid off – BOO! I just don't know what to say - so awful. :( Sucks so bad you guys.
  • As off 11 p.m. we are officially signed off and under contract – no more due diligence, no more inspection stuff….the house is good as ours!
  • Here’s what I ate.

Talk about an up-and-down last couple of days. Let me tell you - my stomach has been in knots, I haven't slept well, my TOM has me feeling like crap and if it weren't for Stacy I wouldn't have worked out during lunch either day - thanks, Stacy!!! I hope you guys had great Mondays & Tuesdays!! Off to read your bloggies now!

P.S. Monday and Tuesday I weighed 116.5 - eek! I haven't weighed that in a while... I should totally blame TOM, right? LOL I'm sure the back-to-back BP's didn't help either - eek! I'll burn lots of calories packing this weekend - no doubt!

P.S.S. Thinspired brought this up a while back and I thought it was smart. When you comment would you rather I commented back on YOUR blog or commented back on HERE? Let me know what would be easiest/best/most convenient/preferred by you!! :)

Hmmm...that's a good question about responding....I usually know you'll respond on YOUR blog, but others I usually try to respond on theirs. I just know your routine, but I guess on my blog somewhere would be easier?

I have to tell you how excited I get when I see you have a new blog up! LOL Since you were one of the first ones I found and followed I love to follow yours.

Who's preggo?? Anyone I know? How exciting though! My friends are finally getting into the stage of marriage and soon will be kids....me however? No. I dunno how I feel about that.

Wow...Ramble much jenny? MUAHAH!!

TOm SUCKS BUTT and I ALWAYS skip a day or two that week. I seriously HAVE to. I just feel poopy no matter what. So, don't feel too bad about missing or gaining a few back during that time. :-)

LOST tonight!!

I don't always check blogs to see if the author did a follow-up to my comment. I'm glad you post your follow-ups on my blog because I get an e-mail saying that I have a comment to check.

Sorry the new recipe didn't turn out well and REALLY sorry about TOM problems.

And I emailed you about this, but thanks for the chicken curry recipe. It's delicious, and I love it!

Big Pissy said...

I'd chalk it up to TOM. And I know you....you'll have those 2 lbs off in no time. :)

As for the comments, I always come back here to check. Habit from my blog. But I think it's whatever works for you and your readers. :)

I ADORED "Over Her Dead Body". Great read! :)

Nerd Girl said...

I have no preference as to the commenting question. I always feel super happy that you or anyone else has commented on my blog...but I occasionally check back to see if you've followed up on my comment on your blog :)

Also...dude....you and I are close encounters with the TOM. My bastard just left...thank God! It was a grueling five days and I was off the charts weight-wise, but am now back to normal as I'm sure you will be too! No worries, fair friend.

Kelly Olexa said...

Never thought about the comment thing. Hmmm. I am going to be trying some of your new recipes though!! YUMMY!! ;-)
KO

Thinspired said...

I'm up a bit in my weight too, by more than your two pounds. It's ok, it will all get back to normal.
I like this format for posting--the list format, it makes it very readable :) Congrats to your friend who is expecting!
I never got a straight answer on the comments--let me know if you do! :)

if I ask something on your blog, I can assuen you'll comment on your blog too so I'll check back - if I remember LOL

love me some crab!

your man would probably LOVE the crab omellettes me and hubby love to make! basically you mix up the crab cakes into balls like you would if you were doing actual crab cakes - and then for an omellete u just crumble it all into the omellete while cooking and add cheese - YUM

dailygoods said...

Yay for a closing date!!! I hope you're feeling better by now. :( That movie is terrible - I never turn movies off, but I barely lasted 20 minutes with Fool's Gold. Don't worry about the ST, you'll get back into it when things calm down a bit. For now, just lift some heavy boxes...hahaha
Have a great weekend!!

Kaneil, balanceisbest
