thursday whoop

my heart rate monitor hasn't come in the mail yet, but i didn't expect it to. i am patiently waiting, in case you were wondering. date night was fun. we sang songs, and then we made gardenburgers on enriched buns and low fat mccain fries, and a yummy salad with tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, and fat free ranch dressing. and these santa fe crispy salad topper strips which are basically ranch doritos packaged as a salad topping. ok if you are careful with portion control.

we watched antm: i was happy with who got the boot. that girl was so awkward, she needed to go. she couldn't even walk (or talk.) i find myself thinking, why can't these girls just change to suit the judges? i would! you are a model—adapt yourself! if your silly voice makes you sound like an idiot, stop talking that way! i don't get it.

tonight is more new TV: ugly betty and grey's anatomy. i don't want to watch any more TV but i don't want to be out of the loop. actually i don't watch ugly betty... i've just always wanted to watch it because it looks super cute. i watched grey's anatomy, but the truth is i am so sick of meredith's whining and pining. maybe i will just tape it and read a book instead. that way i won't have to sit through boring commericals either.

or, i could go to the eaton centre after work and meet BOB HARPER, who is signing books at indigo. i really like bob harper. he seems to genuinely care about making people healthier. and he's so little and cute too. on the other hand i don't really care about meeting celebrities, and i don't like crowds in shopping malls, so maybe i will go home and vacuum instead.

this post is too stream of consciousness. this morning at the gym i walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill, did a bit of strength training, and then 10 minutes on the stationary bike. not a bad work out but i might go for another walk after work. tomorrow is weigh-in and i was up for the last two weeks which has to be nipped. in. the. bud. maintenant!

apparently there is a brand new sobey's right by my office so i am going to go there at lunch and check it out. i don't know why they would put a sobey's here when there is a giant dominion and loblaws just blocks away, but variety is the spice of life, as well as consumer choice, so i'm not complaining. today on the menu is:

1/2 piece sprouted grains bread (pre workout)
1/2 piece sprouted grains bread (post workout)

handful of vanilla shreddies shoved in my mouth

source yogurt with unsweetened almond joy
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup organic kamut puff cereal

pc blue menu multigrain oatmeal
with flax and
1/3 cup vanilla shreddies mixed in

carrots and tomatoes with spicy hummus
more yogurt with unsweetened almond breeze

and for dinner... not sure yet.

Damn, I wish I could've met Bob Harper! :( That would be awesome. I'd only hope that he was nice in person, ahha. And Gordon Ramsey is going to be there too, right? Hmm.

Jen said...

*laughs* I love how you would rather vaccuum than meet Bob!!! Though as per Jennifer's comment there I would DIE to meet Chef Ramsey!!!

I am sick of Meredith's whining as was almost ruining the show for I hope it comes back with a vengeance!

i totally agree about meredith but i am still looking forward to it. i am going to do the same and tape it to avoid commercials. watch ugly betty. it is adorable.

Jenn said...

I don't watch much tv, I used to be into Grey's, but the last two seasons have really turned me off to it. I might watch it tonight, but I don't know.

LOL at vaccuming. I'm like you, I hate crowds, I'd probably just go home too.

Randi said...

Meredith - AGREED! I was really hoping she did die on that show when she drowned. I love Christina so I watch. But I'm not excited about it any more. I wonder how the strike will affect ratings. I basically stopped watching tv and didn't miss it much. (Except LOST!)

I'm sure you'll be great at WI tomorrow!

I usually watch the abc channel shows online. You can go to and watch full episodes. They have 4-5, 30 second commercials that go by really quick. Just thought I'd throw that out there instead of videotaping and fast forwarding through commericials.

Vanessa said...

I love Ugly Betty! It's super cute :). I'll be recording it and Grey's so I can skip the commercials and boring/annoying bits :P. What did I do before my PVR?

ashley said...

Bob Harper!? Well, it'd be cool to tell everyone about!

.. but I would rather go home and do the vacuuming :)

Erin said...

I am also torn about new Grey's - it has been so long, and I might rather sleep and then see if I can download the episode tomorrow. We'll see. It has been so long since I have seen a new one that I don't even really care!

Lol, we got a new vaccuum, and my husband now LOVES to vaccuum. I am not complaining....

I love this post, it makes me feel normal for how I think, I swear I often have the same though patterns, I want to do this but that, how about this, nope, this.. LOL I loved it!
