Top Five Reasons My Husband Thought I Was A Lesbian

Hannah called me before lunch yesterday to tell me that she got called into work last night and wasn’t able to hang out with me.Β  She was so upset – but luckily the people she babysits for on Thursday nights is out of town this week, so we will hang out tonight. πŸ˜€

I didn’t have time to stop by and pick up a deluxe bagel for bagel Wednesday, so it was a frozen bagel with 1/4 cup egg beaters, slice of ham and a slice of swiss cheese – with a deliciously juicy pear on the side.Β  Breakfast comes in at 9 PointsPlus.

I got my 50 minute walk in at lunch.Β  I had another favorite for lunch today – my Thai Basil Chicken in Baked Wonton Cups.Β  This plate was only 8 points, and I had an apple later in the afternoon.

So I called Tony in the afternoon and asked if he wanted a date night. πŸ˜€Β  We decided to go to Friday’s because the food is decent, I had a $5 off coupon and a gift card to use.Β  When I went online to find nutritional info, they don’t really have it for the food in the restaurant.Β  Although they do have a “right portion, right price” menu.Β  Guess what the right portion is?Β  Each right portion menu item is under 750 calories.Β  Really?Β  They think 750 calories is a right portion?

I forgot my camera, which I think subconsiously changed my decision of what I was going to get.Β  I was going to get the Key West shrimp – grilled shrimp with a veggie rice and steamed broccoli.Β  Instead I got:

  • Turkey burger with pepper jack cheese = 11 PointsPlus
  • Sweet Potato Fries: 4 PointsPlus
  • Two Michelob Ultra Bottles: 7 PointsPlus
  • Two glasses of wine at home: 7 PointsPlus

If you are adding correctly, you will see that I had my daily 29 points just for dinner!Β  But I am okay with this.Β  Does anyone remember the “Wendy Plan” in the old WW days?Β  This woman Wendy had a theory – she took her point allotment for the week – let’s use the 29 points as an example.Β  That would be 203 points for the week (not including the flex points).

She would alter the number of points she ate – so one day it might be 17 points, the next day it might be 30 points – just as long as she kept the total to 203 points for the week – she almost always had a loss.Β  Her theory was that by changing it up and not having exactly 29 points every day, her body had to keep thinking on its toes.Β 

So even with my 29 point dinner, I still have 32 flex points for the week, and I’ve earned 12 activity points.Β  It’s all good!Β  And, by the way, the Turkey Burger at Friday’s is really good – just ask for sliced jalapenos on the side! πŸ˜€

Top Five Reasons My Husband Thought I Was A Lesbian:

  1. I played field hockey.
  2. I threw the shot put in high school.
  3. I was on a bowling league.
  4. I play softball . . .and
  5. I listen to Indigo Girls!

My commute is much longer to work, so I’ve been enjoying listening to music on my way to work.Β  Look how old school I am . . . I still have the cassette tape!

So if you live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, and hear a woman singing “CloserΒ To Fine” really loud, it will probably be me. πŸ˜€

Have a great Thursday!

  1. hahahhahaha- great blog post title ever? I think so. Bummer about Hannah having to work- but it sounds like you definitely made the best of the night πŸ™‚ My husband is a big believer in switching up eats in terms of calories and types of foods. He always discusses how this keeps your metabolism guessing and working hard and I agree! I feel the same is true with the types of exercise we do. A varied schedule is much better than the same thing day in and out. Those little wonton cups are cute and sound tasty.

  2. Totally remember the wendy plan…think I tried it for a week or two…but it was so long ago.

    Have fun with Hannah tonight.

  3. Hahahaha post title for the win!

    I really want thai food now after seeing your wonton cups!

  4. I love your blog titles!! Talk about a hook to reel you in!

    Hey, as long as those numbers on the scale come in right, you go ahead and figure out how ever you want! I’ve never done weight watchers so I have no idea how to figure it out.

  5. And yet, he went out with you anyway! I guess he was convinced he could get you to bat for the other team hahahahahahaha!

  6. Okay, I laughed out loud at the title of this!

  7. You are so funny! And cassette tapes? Really??? Dang girl, that IS old school!

  8. hahaha…bet he was really glad he was wrong!

    sigh…IDK…been following this points plus plan now since it was launched in Nov and honestly, I am just not in LOVE with it. I do remember the WENDIE plan…and I DO know I did better on momentum…but points plus is what we have been forced to work with now…so it is what it is.

  9. Hey, I listen to show tunes while cooking in an apron… Your list is at least a few years old, mine is my life.

    I am ankle deep in diet mode right now. Friday’s has a terrible rep among weight watcher folks (even there menus lie about what is really in their numbers). But, eating out anywhere is tough.

    Keep the good fight

  10. This was a post I couldn’t miss with such a great title! Your were quite the jock! And by the way, I LOVE INDIGO GIRLS. My favorite CD of theirs is “All That We Let In” (i think that’s the name – may just be a song). Anyhoo, I also love your 29 point meal evening and that you’re okay with it. That plan of whatever her name was makes sense.

  11. The title of your post cracked me up! I love Closer to Fine….such a great song that takes me back to fun memories! I remember the Wendy plan. I was all set to try it…and that weekend I found out I was pregnant. It’s something I’ve been thinking about trying again though. Thanks for the reminder!

  12. Haha! How can I NOT open a post with this title!! Love it!

  13. lol! tony is too funny

  14. I almost snorted soda out my nose when I saw the post title. πŸ™‚ I don’t worry too much about how I use my points or what I use them on as long as I stay in my allotment. The first time I did it, I generally ate my set daily points + activity points during the week and used almost all my weeklies on the weekend. It worked well, it was flexible enough for me to be social and stay sane. I’m probably going to end up doing something similar this time.

  15. Best blog post title EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It made me smile before I even opened it up in my Google Reader!
    Have a great night with Hannah tonight! πŸ™‚

  16. Hooray for Bagel Wednesday!! πŸ˜€

  17. HILARIOUS post title Biz!!!!! I almost snorted out my coffee…..
    I’m sure he was very glad when he realized he was wrong.

  18. Amazon.com thought one of my friends was a lesbian because she bought a lot of indigo girls. It kepts suggesting lesbian authors and other musicians to her…as well as self help books!

  19. And, if I was in the car with you, singing the harmony with you! πŸ™‚

    I can’t believe you still have that tape!!!

  20. This entire post is a crack up. Lesbianism? Check! Cassette tape? Check! You are too much. πŸ™‚

  21. So, was he disappointed when he found out the truth? LOL you’re too funny πŸ˜€

  22. Funny list! πŸ™‚

    Glad you guys had a nice dinner!

    Your comment on my kohlrabi post made me smile. It must be awful to get nothing but a vegetable you can’t stand in your CSA box all summer long!!! Wish you could have shipped them to me! πŸ™‚

  23. That’s really funny. I love Indigo Girls! not sure I had them on tape though, LOL! I can’t believe they list 750 as a healthier dinner option. That might work for a football player, but I would need to budget my day better for some of those. Luckily, I almost always keep half my dinner for lunch the next day. Although some things are so good I will eat everything. I really do not miss chain restaurants at all. Here it is simple. Fish, salad, and boiled potatoes. The bread and cheese are what get me every time!

  24. your title cracked me up, and hell yes for old school cassette tapes!

  25. OMG that made me giggle with the old school tape. My car does have a cassette player but all I use it for these days is the converter for my iPod!

  26. Wait…WHA–? Hahaha! Loved the title. Was that for real though? Hee hee, I’m sure he was happy to find that he was wrong!

  27. haha, i loved the title of your post! i like the sound of wendy’s plan, i’ve been plateauing a bit, maybe that would help me.

  28. haha you are SUCH a nut – love the tape!!

    The wonton cups look fab. I will be repeating. And OMG – can you imagine eating ‘the right portion amount’ for all meals – eek!

    I made TWO of your recipes today – YUM – going to go to the posts to leave comments. πŸ™‚ I had my own Bizzy Kitchen today!

  29. That is funny! So your marriage to Tony is a cover up! OK you threw the shotput and I threw the javelin- yay field girls! I tried to be a runner and hated it and javelin had the shortest distance to run so I did that. Hmm maybe I should have thrown the shotput since all you do is twirl around;-) I did throw the discus once and beat the PA state champ with a 22 foot throw- she fouled all three times!!!

  30. I love Indigo Girls too!!

  31. Bwhahaha!!! He was just using that as an excuse to get you to prove him wrong … bow chicka bow bow πŸ˜‰ Good one, Tony!

  32. I LOVE that you still have cassette tapes. Every time I see those Thai Chicken Won Tons I want them….and OMG, I DID the Wendy plan before too! So funny πŸ™‚ I actually kind of loved planning my high point days each week ~ I think there is definite mental advantages to her plan for sure. I would’ve totally eaten all my points+ at dinner if I could eat what you did – YUM!
