GO COWBOYS!… oh yeah.
(Well this is awkward…)
Ahem… So the Giants won and since I had absolutely no dog in that fight, I was able to enjoy the game stress free that turned out to be pretty epic. For me, the true fun was the socialmediasphere that was blowing up with tweets and post about every thing from people’s favorite commercial to the Puppy Bowl (oh yeah, and some about the game.) Super Sunday always reminds me why I love social media so much and why I believe it can be so effective. Granted with the Super Bowl you have a pretty captive audience, but with such big events its as if you are at a party with your friends from across the country. It’s something special and I’m glad Mark Zuckerburg stole the idea from those Winklevoss twins to make social media the powerful communication that it is today.
Okay, moving on. So I wasn’t really good this week, but I worked out and drank my water and it really paid off! I lost 1.2 pounds this week! I have lost 119 pounds so far! I can’t believe how close I am to 120 pounds! I’m going to have to be extra careful this week because I have a developed a “two steps forward and one step back” pattern (yes, the Paula Abdul pattern.) Since I have made such good progress the past few weeks (five pounds in two weeks to be exact!) I need to keep the ball rollin’ to avoid being stuck in that 239-241 plateau region. I’m glad my body finally decided it was time to lose weight again! Huzzah!
Breakfast: I had two pieces of toast with peanut butter and honey. It was nomtastic!
Lunch: After church, we ran to Subway and split a Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki (hooray $5 footlongs!) and then went to the TCBY next door and had dessert. I was bad and had a parfait which had your choice of three toppings and two scoops of yogurt. My toppings were epic, but contextually wrong: hot fudge, peanut better cup and heath bar. Not my brightest moment.
Snack: I had a piece of low fat cake that Megan had made with applesauce. I was really impressed! It was fluffier than regular cake and less fat and calories! (True story: I was in a Facebook group called “I Brake For Cake” actually I probably still am.)
Super Bowl Progressive Dinner: This year, we stayed at home because we both had homework and really we are just exhausted from school. Anyway, we found a few different recipes off of Skinny Taste to try… and we didn’t make any of them 🙂 (We will make them this week though so stay tuned!) We started off with chips and salsa during the pre-game/Puppy Bowl, then Megan made these twice baked potatoes with light sour cream, bacon bits and low fat cheese. They were basically a meal in themselves. During the game, I fired up the grill and cooked up some turkey Italian Sausages and suited them up with sauerkraut, spicy mustard and ketchup. After that, we were both in our own food comas. Then the game was over, The Voice came on, I was still trying to figure out if Cee Lo Green was a warlock or not, and then I started this post. Now you know Nathan’s complete life in real time!
So that’s about it. Pretty good day. Great weigh in and a great day of socializing on the interwebs. See ya tomorrow.
