The day before...

Well, t'is the last day before the big weigh-in. I was up 2 weeks in a row (stupid me!)... but this week i'm hoping for a minus sign beside my weight change.

today was not unlike any other... i went to work, worked, went on facebook (which I hear they're planning on banning from work in the next few weeks - i guess we'll see if it happens!).... ate my lunch, went out for a walk for about a half an hour... then had a meeting ALLLLL afternoon (ugh!).

what did i eat today?

breakfast - oatmeal (2)
AM snack - cereal (1)
lunch - salad with feta (1), tuna (1), a bunch of fruit (2)
PM snack - carrots, red pepper, hummus (2)
Dinner - chicken breast (3), spicy peas (0), peach (1) and cottage cheese (2)
HS snack - I was HUNGRY... but I had the points for it, so it's okay... I ended up having 2 cups of cereal (2) and 1 cup of skim milk (2)

I REALLY REALLY want popcorn with becel spray and white cheddar seasoning... but tomorrow's weigh-in and I should be afraid of water retention.

ALSO - i was THIRSTY today. I ended up downing 3L of water (well... crystal light!)

now... just WHAT are spicy peas, you might ask? my mom thinks i'm crazy and eat like a pregnant lady when I tell her how I like to eat these peas.

Basically, I take the small sweet frozen president's choice peas (they sell them in a bag in the frozen vegetables isle... they have to be the SWEET peas). I put them in a microwavable container and mix in some FRANK'S HOT SAUCE... i cook them for a couple of minutes, then when they are done I put some ketchup in (blue menu ketchup with less calories of course!).... I know it's odd - but if you like peas and you like ketchup like i do - give it a try! the added kick of the frank's hot sauce is great (at least I think so!).

I've decided ONE of the things we're getting Michele and Jacob for the baby (when it arrives... I've made a rule for myself that I won't buy anything more until the baby gets here)... Alex wants to get them a gift certificate for The Children's Place (he did research and found out they're at the mall close to Michele and Jacob. yes folks - I do believe he may secretly be getting excited for this baby's arrival as well). I would like to (as per tradition in the family) get the baby its first winnie the pooh doll... but also get a bumbo seat. all the mom's on the weight loss board I read SWEAR by these seats....

here's a baby who is only just over a month old sitting in her bumbo. basically as soon as they can hold up their head they can sit in the seat... people seem to find them helpful for taking to restaurants or to people's homes...
Michele saw them and thought they looked too hard for a baby to sit in... and I kind of agreed... but when I went to look at one in person at Toys R Us... they're not actually plastic - they're foam! So i think I'll get one for her and give her a gift receipt (or keep it at my place or at mom and dad's!)... and she can decide if she really might like it. i just think they're cute!

Time to go watch "The real world Denver"... ahhh my trash TV before bed - I love my life!!!

Hey Jen!
I swear I commented yesterday but I usually preview it first and must have neglected to actually "post" it...I'm a loser :)
Spicy peas sound yummy! I have a recipe for green beans that is similar...stir fry the beans and then mix together ketchup, soy sauce, red wine vinegar and Frank's. Pour on beans = best cooked vegetable side dish EVER!!
Good luck at weigh in tonight and happy sub eating later :)
PS. no baby yet....:(
