Larry Used The “C” Word

Evening Everyone! I hope everyone had a great Thursday! I had a pretty good day but we will get to that in a little bit. Let’s pickup where we left off.

As most of you know, I was having problems with Jillian’s Wii game ayer and Larry from the tech dept told me to workout and see if it would record my workout, so I did and once again all my workouts had Zeros! I was sweaty and frustrated and decided to call Larry again. This is when he said what I was hoping would not come out of his mouth “your saved file seems to be CORRUPTED and you need to delete the workouts and start again” NO NO NO! He walked me through the process on how to delete it from the Wii and told me to start my resolution the next day. The next day? Hell no! I need to do it right NOW! This is when my new friend, Larry called me a masochist. Masochist? No. Dedicated? YES. I ended up doing 2 Workouts ayer and burned 551 Calories. Thankfully the 2nd workout was not that hard because it was the first day of the new resolution.

After my workout I refueled with some (look away Luigi lol) Rice and BeansDSCN4417

I loafed around for the rest of the afternoon and waited for my mechanic to call me to go get my car. He finally called me around 4ish and guess what!?!?! NO MORE STATIC ON MY RADIO! it turns out that I was right the whole and the piece he put in my engine WAS damaged. After the mechanic, I drove over to my mom’s for Christmas Part 2. We ordered from Lenny’s and got the usual Calamari and Shrimp but this time I asked my sister to pick up some Green Giant Broccoli and Cheese instead of pasta.

I ended up eating Calamari and Shrimp with Broccoli and Cheese and a piece of bread.


I also made my famous Low Fat Lemon Cheesecake…it tasted so good that I almost forgot to snap a picture lol.


My mom broke the rules and got us small gifts.

hmmm what could this be????DSCN4424

My mom is the best listener EVER and remembered that I want a fleece blanket! DSCN4429

I could not wait to use it! sooooo soft DSCN4439


This morning I woke up and I could not wait to have my OIAJ! I tossed in 1/2 a Banana and paired it with my usual café. This always makes me happy =)


Later in the afternoon, I took my mom on a date! We went to go see "It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin. This movie was fabulous… My mom and I laughed so hard. I know I said this before, but I really love Meryl Streep! Favorite Actress!!!!!

We went to the movies around lunch time and I had no idea that my lunch would end up being some popcorn and bag of Reese’s Pieces!


Please please don’t judge me and put the rocks back in your pockets! lol.

Trust me, I felt the pain! my stomach was not happy with my lunch choice…

After the movies we went to Bath and Body Works and I got a candle and Wall Flowers. We then picked up my sister and niece and took my sis to Sports Authority to pick up some resistance bands. It is so hard to go there and not buy anything.

CIMG0023After the supermarket, this is my (second) favorite place on earth! Who needs Disney World! lol

When I finally got home, I did my Scheduled Jillian Wii Game. I don’t know why Jil Jil does not love me? I love her so much but every time we meet, she kicks my ass! I worked out for 37 minutes and burned 333 Calories.

After consuming this for lunch


It only seemed right that I had this for dinner…DSCN4454

Roasted Brussels Sprouts in EVOO, Garlic, and Salt and Kale Chips.

I am off to catch up on some blogs…I am having withdrawals! hehe

Have a great night!!!

  4. Glad you got a good ass kickin' from Jillian :) And, you truly ARE dedicated to those workouts, good for you. Even with a corruption and everything?!

    OIAJ, calamari, and fleece blankets. What more could you ask for in one day?!

  5. Haha, oh people are annoying. Oats in a jar, yum!

  6. You are a masochist! That's why I love you!
    I could so go for a big bag of candy for lunch...oh right...I just ate a bunch of brownies for dinner. I'm covered :)

    Are you coming back manana to entertain me?

  7. aww, that's cute that you had a movie date with your mama!

  8. Sounds like you had a great day!

    That is a complete bummer about the game. I would have been as mad as you.

    Yay to fleece blankies! I love them!

  9. This is a judgment f free zone! If you want popcorn and Reeses for lunch one day, EAT IT :)

    I LOVE fleece blankets!
    Sorry about your Jillian problems ;)
    <3 jess

  10. reeces peices and fleece blankets are 2 of my FAV THINGS!!!!!!
    i loved its freakin cute!

  11. What rocks? I just want to steal some of your Reeses! ;-)

    Aw, how nice and attentive of your mom! I hope you are reading this tucked warm and cozy in your fleece blanket, tee hee! :D

  12. I TOTALLY agree with Jess, this is a judgement free zone!


  13. LOVE Fleece blankets, robes, towels you name it! I am in my pink robe now!!

    I want to see Its Complicated! Thanks for the review!


    kale in the smoothie is good!

  14. Fun Christmas Part II! I could use a fleece blanket since I am constantly cold.

    I SO want to see It's Complicated. I've heard good things about it.

    I'm sorry about the Wii...pain in the youknowwhere.

  15. I've always wanted one of those ultra-soft fleece blankets! I want to see "It's Complicated" - glad to see another thumbs up!

    Trying kale chips this weekend...I'm excited!

  16. What a nice way to spend a second Christmas! I love going to the movies with my mom, and that movie is one I know she and I would love together.

    I would have done the same thing with the wii...if I have it in my mind that I'm going to do something, I don't want to be told that I can't. I had a similar experience yesterday that I will chronicle in my blog today. Technology can be so frustrating!!

  17. Why on earth would we judge you?! Who can resist the power of Reeses?

    I'm glad Larry helped you finally :)

  18. Those things can get corrupted??!! I shouldn't tell my mom that .. she just invested in Wii recently. She'll give up at the first sign of trouble .. unlike u, who powers through all Wii issues!

  19. She is my favorite actress too! I have to see that movie soon :-)

  20. MMM I am all of the sudden getting a craving for kale chips! yes I crave them, don't judge!

    and girl, once in a while at teh movies it is OK to have popcorn and resses for lunch. if your body watned this then, then it was better to have it and feed teh craving then later indulging in everything in sight!

    you are ROCKING these jillian workouts! you should take a vid of you doing them! I would love to see what they are like!

  21. I'd have a stomach ache too! I remember when I reached a 50lb goal (so many years ago) my friend took me out to celebrat (TO FREAKIN EAT!) and I ate like a pig and had to ride home with my heard out of the car window- i was so ill!

    and I am dying to see Its Complicated

  22. I'm glad you got it to work again, but I agree-you are definitely dedicated, and that's a great thing! The fleece blanket looks so cozy :)

  23. No judging for your popcorn and chocolate lunch! I'd take that any day! Glad you had fun with mom and that your Wii is all better!

  24. oh! i totally wanna see its complicated! i'm glad you thought it was good because i've heard reviews that say it wasnt but i love meryl streep too so i trust your words haha

    that fleece blanket makes me so sleeepy

  25. Ha ha, glad to know someone else's favorite places are the supermarket and sporting goods stores. I feel normal now ;-)
