I have Roz to thank for my laughing fit yesterday. She wrote a post about it being International Talk Like a Pirate Day and shared a link to come up with your pirate name. In that instance, I put in “Biz” and my pirate name was: “Fancypants” Liza Cooke. Nice! 😀
On that same site was: www.gangstaname.com – I decided to see what my gangsta name would be. Imagine my surprise when I put in Biz as my old name and it came up with this gangsta name!
What the hell is up with that?! I was laughing so hard at that! So I had to do my sister Jennifer’s name:
So then I did Tony:
Wobbly Crab Whacka
and then my brother Charlie:
I am not making these up! Please, go to that link and leave your gangsta name in the comment section – I plan to have lots of laughs today! Thanks Roz for the laughs!!
I had some work errands to run in the morning, so I didn’t get to my desk until 10, which is late for me eating breakfast. I found these “triple health” Thomas english muffins at the outlet store – each one has 6 grams of fiber. I had it with 1/2 cup egg whites, baby spinach and cheese with a side of fresh fruit. Breakfast comes in at 8 points.
It was absolutely gorgeous yesterday. When I left for my bike ride, it was 75 degrees, breezy and sunny. I ended up doing 9.95 miles in 49:47. The scenery from my blackberry:
And this one I didn’t retouch at all and it kinda looks like a painting. 😀
The path that I ride on has these yellow and purple flowers all over it – I have no idea what they are, but they are beautiful – they grow along side the prairie grass.
I was going to go another .5 miles to make it an even 10 miles, but I had a taco salad waiting for me! And just so you know, it’s okay to use a serving bowl as a salad bowl. 😀
In the mix: 2 cups chopped romaine, 1/2 cup shredded carrots, 1/3 cup broccoli slaw, 1/2 ounce shredded cheese, 1/2 cup english cucumber, 1 ounce diced avocado, 3 ounces cooked taco beef and for the dressing: 2 tablespoons light done right ranch mixed with 1 tablespoon Frank’s hot sauce – this whole delicious bowl is 10 WW points. You better believe I licked it clean.
It was grilling weather, so I made Tony and I some cheeseburgers for dinner. And please don’t judge that I had fries two nights in a row. It’s not nice to point. 😀 Dinner comes in at 14 points. The hot gardieiera made this burger.
And if you made it down this far . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY STEP-SON JOE! He turns 22 today – Happy Birthday! We got him a gift card to Fogo de Chao (even though his fiance is vegetarian – they have the best salad bar though!) and I sent him some crack cookies – snickerdoodles and cookies I made up that had Captain Crunch in them – that recipe will be for another post.
Some pics this past year of Joe stolen of his facebook page, since he lives in Austin and we don’t see him too often. Joe at work on the left . . . now he wears suits because he’s a fancy pants assistant to the assistant regional manager. 😀
Him and the cat Jasmine that he torments. Jasmine has its own facebook page by the way:
Joe and Lizz:
Happy Birthday Joe – we love you!
