Back in to the rhythm

16 Aug

Have you ever noticed what a funny looking word ‘rhythm’ is? I had to go double check the spelling because it just looked too funny in my title; according to google I spelled it right so here’s hoping google didn’t steer me wrong! lol

I was back in my eating rhythm today (thanks to work, sigh), up at the crack of dawn (well, ok, 6am but it felt like the crack of dawn…course I don’t know when dawn is right now so maybe I am right? :P) and off to the office (hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work we go!) where I had to sit in air conditioning aaaaalllllll day. I hate a/c, whoever invented it is just mean, and whomever implemented it in the building I work in is sadistic. I want to enjoy the heat of summer not spend my days wearing sweaters and drinking tea comparing goose bumps with the girl I sit next to! No wonder adults stopped having fun in everyday experiences, the wonder and joy of the world gets sucked out of you the longer you have to sit in air conditioned rooms toiling at work instead of enjoying the summer and going out and playing. *rolls eyes* adults are so stupid – myself included since I am (for now anyways!) joining in with this stupid practice of wasting my summer.ย  I can’t wait until I lose this weight and can finally get me another agent who will then get me kick ass auditions that will land me paying acting roles where I can love my work and have summers off (unless I do movies then I will be working at all different times of the year)…

…and with that segue, to my weight loss! Charge it! lol

I found out today that Malibu (a lady at work) has also decided to join Weight Watchers, however, she makes more money then me so she actually joined Weight Watchers while I am using hand me down books and info from my mother and taking this wonderous little journey on my own. She joined online and so far seems to be enjoying it – she joined friday so it’s not like she’s been on it long. She seems to think that my willpower to resist all the treats at work comes from being on WW and since she has been cheating practically everyday on the diet plan she was trying she seems to think that joining WW will boost her willpower in to high gear and bam! she’ll lose weight. I don’t know how I feel about this…which seems petty, I know I should be happy that I apparently provided some inspiration and now other people are trying the same program but…it’s my program! I was the only one at work doing WW and I kinda liked it that way, and well…she can actually afford to join, which means she’ll get all the benefits of being involved in WW that I don’t get cause I can’t afford it. It doesn’t seem fair that someone who joined WW cause of me gets all the benefits of being a member and me, the person who (accidentally) convinced her to join still can’t afford to join. sigh. So now you know, I am vain and petty! ๐Ÿ˜›

I guess I was enjoying being the only one at work on this particular program; it was sorta my domain and I am territorial and don’t like sharing so I figure this blast of petty-ness comes from that and hey, kudos to Malibu for trying a healthy program to lose weight…man I hope she doesn’t lose weight faster then me, that’ll just blow! lol

On a happier note, I cooked something new today! I was quite excited about it (still am really) but when talking to JF on the phone discovered that my new cooking accomplishment is not that big a deal in the land of people-who-have-been-cooking-dinner-for-years. lol. I made…ready? Corn on the cob! …no, that is not a joke! ๐Ÿ˜› I have never made it before but there was a stand selling fresh Chilliwack Sweet Corn on my route home so I decided to buy corn cause I thought it’d go well with the hot weather we are having. Who doesn’t like corn on the cob with dinner on a hot night? I just wanted one and the guy looks at me like I am crazy and says they are sold by the dozen…uh, that still doesn’t stop me from only needing one. Eventually we settled on three which now I am glad about cause the one I had tonight was deeeelish and I am looking forward to having another tomorrow night with diner. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mentioned to the guy selling it I was going to google how to cook it and he said put it in boiling water for 3 minutes. Nice, easy, I can do that, this is looking promising. Here is where the really sad part comes in (sad as in you’re gonna laugh at me kind of sad lol). On the drive home Iย peek in the bag at the corn all excited about my little treasure and practically swerve cause my corn doesn’t look like corn, it’s green! Green?!?! Say wha?? When I got home I did what all self-respecting adults do, I called my mom. ๐Ÿ˜›ย  Told her about buying the corn etc and then asked what was wrong with my corn cause it is green. She starts laughing and says that is the husk and I have to take that off and the yellow corn that I am used to seeing is underneath. Oooooohhh, hmm, somebody should write that on the corn…er, husk. So then a perfectly natural question on my part…do I put it in the boiling water with the husk still on? Got quite the stern NO! on that one. After detailed explanations on what to do at every stage of the corn cooking event I got off the phone and decided to put my newfound knowledge in to action…and I made corn on the cob!!! It turned out perfect! Oh, and I was right, it was a great side to my dinner on this hot summer night…it goes great with salmon. ๐Ÿ˜€

My food today:

3/4 cup Special K Blueberry = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 cup grapes = 1 point

1 piece toast = 1 point

1/4 cup Maple Baked Beans = 1 point

1 babybell cheese = 1 point

1/4 cup couscous with corn = 3 points

1 cup cherries = 1 point

1 Dill and Herb Salmon Steak = 3 points

1 corn on the cob = 1 point

1 piece toast = 1 point

2 tsp margarine = 2 points (used on toast and on corn)

1 Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich = 2 points

1 pck Weight Watchers Cheddar Twists = 2 points

Total points used 22! See? Back in the rhythm. ๐Ÿ˜€ I could have done without that last snack but I figured what the hell, eat something, use up the points and be done with it. I think I have had 4 days in a row now where I didn’t use all my points so it was nice to actually use them all again.ย  I am a little worried I won’t lose weight cause of not using all my points but 2 of those 4 days I was sick and the other 2 days were the weekend and I always struggle to use up all my points on weekends. Ah well, nothing I can do about it now. ๐Ÿ™‚
