Let the Games Begin!

Today is the official start day out round 2 of the DietBet.  Welcome Kris M. to the game!  We are now up to an $800 pot and we have 32 players – 18 of which are blog readers and friends so I am the MVP of the Game – woop!

I have to say i thoroughly enjoyed having a rest day yesterday, but I am looking forward to getting sweaty with Shaun T. later today. Open-mouthed smile

I still had more salad leftover, so I made another salad smoothie – this time I added a small banana and 1/2 a cup of frozen peaches, and this was delicious – just enough sweetness.

Even though it looks like someone vomited in a cup, this was really good – and filling.  I drank this on the way to work wasn’t even hungry until 12:30!

My boss that I cooked for decided to buy us lunch yesterday – Panera!  Speaking of Panera, Hannah just got promoted to associate trainer, and now has an official silver name tag, not the paper one – go Hannah!

I did the pick two – and while the picture of the soup looks like ass, it tasted amazing – Chicken lemon orzo soup – so lemony and delicious with half a fuji apple salad.  Even with the dressing (I only used one) lunch was 430 calories – not bad!

I need to make Renee’s Lemon Chicken Orzo soup this week for lunches.  I had forgotten she made an amazing one!

Couldn’t wait for 5:00 – why are Friday afternoons so slow?  I came home to Tony sitting outside, smoking a cigar, enjoying a beer and he had a glass of wine waiting for me. Open-mouthed smile

I have to say though, since ditching my daily wine, I am a cheap date – just two glasses and I was feeling tipsy! 

I ended up making combo sandwiches for dinner – super quick and easy.  I had leftover sausage from the wedding shower I did earlier in the week and I pulled out a frozen beef roast from the freezer – defrosted it for about 2 minutes, just enough so I could cut some slices for our sandwiches.

I put 2 cups of beef broth with 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning and heated that up and as I shaved the beef, just put that in the au jus to warm it up.  I had 2 ounces of beef and 2 ounces of sausage on my bun – and a few fries because its Friday! Open-mouthed smile

And now the most asked question yesterday:

How do I buy shoes with such different sized feet?

7.12 022


These are all the shoes I own.  Yes, I know, I am not a shoe person.  I mostly wear open toe or open heel shoes, so that it doesn’t really matter that my feet are two different sizes.  For my gym shoes, I just tie my smaller foot shoe really tight and it seems to work.  I don’t think I could find someone else in the world with 2 1/2 size different feet opposite of mine to share shoes with! Open-mouthed smile

Stats for the Day:

  • 2070 calories (includes wine and pretzels)
  • 80 fat, 184 carbs, 16 fiber and 85 protein
  • 36% calories from carbs, 35% from fat and 29% from protein
  • rest day

Another question I got emailed a lot yesterday was what I use to track my calories.  I am sure I’ve mentioned it before but its Fat Secret.  You can type in recipes, it will give you a nutritional label, and that’s how I know my breakdown of the percentage of calories.   Best part?  It’s free!

I’ve got Insanity M2:D8 later today – 55 minutes of Max Cardio Conditioning!  What is on your plate for exercise today?

Make it a great day!

  1. I don’t have a lot of shoes but I have about 20 pairs of flip flops ;). Haha your comment “Even though it looks like someone vomited in a cup, this was really good” made me seriously laugh out loud. GO HANNAH! Have a good weekend

  2. Which one is the smaller foot? Because I am sorry tempted to go to the shoe store and buy you one of each. giggle You’re too cute to wear hum drum shoes. ::grin::

    Oh, and my exercise for the day? Pooldad. ::wink::

    No, seriously, walking the aisles of the grocery store. I wish I had you health and energy Biz. I miss it. But the 30 mile round trip car ride and the shopping will put me to bed.

    Part of my evil plan. Bed. Right where I wanna’ be. ::giggle::

    Love you girlie! Have a great day.

  3. Did I actually write “sorry tempted”? *derp* SORELY tempted.

    Excuse me while I go find an online typing course for the medically challenged. [It’s the pills, I swear!]

  4. I got my cooking light and real simple in the mail yesterday!! Love it!

  5. Tony is a good man – wine and a magazine to relax with just waiting for you?! Perfect!!!
    Dang – I sort-of wish I was doing the Diet Bet just because the pot is so high!!!
    No workout here today (finally!!) – gotta recover from yesterday’s mega run!

  6. New to your blog – love it! Love your style – very real and engaging:) I love food and recipes and struggle with weight and some health issues…but there’s always hope…and your blog is inspiring in that direction! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your life.
    P.S. – loved your analogy about life and the deep/shallow end. A lightbulb went on when I read it!

  7. Lemon Chicken Orzo soup is one of my all time faves!

  8. I love coming home to a cocktail waiting for me. 🙂 Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  9. OK so I actually think you could go to a shoe store and tell them about your feet being different sizes and they would sell you two shoes in different sizes for the same price as a normal pair of shoes. This is why I think that, this crazy prank call guy got Walmart to agree to do this for him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St2TlML4BeU You just gotta say “you can’t be discriminating on feet” and you could totes get you shoes that fit! 😀

  10. I used to have TONS of shoes, but downsized. I probably have like 2 more pairs than you do, and that’s it. Simple shoes are easier to manage!

  11. What a nice husband you have there – so kind! And I laughed out loud and your shoe picture – I’m not quite sure I could fit all my shoes in a single picture? Actually I know I couldn’t. I have a problem.

  12. And here I thought having big feet with narrow ankles was a pain in the ass for buying shoes – 2 1/2 size difference? Crazy!

  13. Am allowed to say your feet are cute? CUTE?!! I did it. Cute…

  14. findingradiance

    That cheesy bun looks so good!

    We had our long ride on Saturday so I could have my cupcake 😀

  15. Oh my, oh my as a shoe addict your collection put me to tears LOL. But I think R. would be happy with you because he says I have way to many shoes 🙂
