today is very windy. you know you don't have anything exciting to say when you talk about a) the weather and b) how tired you are. people talking about how tired they are is very boring. why? because everybody is tired! nobody wants to wake up at 5:30 or 6:00 or 7:00 or even 7:30 like me. ok, today it was 8:00. i kept hitting the snooze.
thanks everybody for all of your nice comments yesterday. big head growing... vanity rising... haha just kidding. my arms are quite buff - i'd like to thank my 5 to 15 pound dumb bells, various protein sources, complex carbs, my mom, my cat, and um.... also the swimming pool.
this is my cat, oliver:
i blew up these happy face balloons for the new year's party and he was fascinated by them. yes, he has blue nails but they are soft paws!
tonight i have a date with my boyfriend, and by "date" i mean making dinner and smooching at my house. i suckered him into seeing atonement last weekend so he deserves a break. atonement was good by the way, although not as good as the book (of course).
last night for dinner i made a giant spinach salad which had - spinach, cooked green and yellow beans, 2 slices peppercorn chicken bacon (chopped), roasted cauliflower, edamame beans out of the shell, almonds, raisins, carrots, and raspberry dressing. yum. i couldn't eat it all so i brought some for lunch today, minus the spinach because soggy spinach = bleh!
so i'm eating:
reduced sugar oatmeal with 1/2 banana
all bran bar and 1/2 banana
that leftover salad mixture
a ravioli lean cuisine
green and yellow beans
