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.
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.
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!
And now the most asked question yesterday:
How do I buy shoes with such different sized feet?
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!

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!
