rocking it

i'm rocking it this week. i feel back in "the zone." now, if only the zone would produce some results. last night i went swimming and then to book club, where, get this, i consumed only a diet coke and no wine or food, even though there were nachos on the table up for grabs. and it wasn't even hard to resist.

today after work i wanted to do nothing. instead i put on my lululemon pants and my hideous fleece vest with my university logo on it and hit the road for a 3-mile (or 5k if you will) run. this is what my vest looks like. i just think fleece is so dorky. it does serve the purpose of warmth. maybe if i camped or hiked or did more outdoorsy things i'd be into fleece. thankfully i'm past the point where i want to be fashionable while i run. ok, i still do a little bit. but i don't want to be cold!

i was so hungry all day today. i think it's because i had raspberries, a banana and a vitatop for breakfast instead of my usual oats. what is it about oatmeal that is so filling? yesterday i made oatmeal with a scoop of chocolate protein powder ... not so into that. it gave it a weird taste. i'll try half a scoop and report back because i'm sure you all are so interested. tomorrow on the evening news! half a scoop of chocolate protein ... what does it taste like? what DOES it TASTE like!?

right now i am making sweet potato fries with cinnamon and splenda. i know i shouldn't use sweeteners but i am not ready to stop yet. besides, the testing they have done on the animals is a little skewed. they really pump those rats full of aspartame - way more than the biggest diet coke addict would consume in one day. and i rarely even drink pop. i just use an equal in my morning coffee and occasionally afternoon or evening tea. and only those "dessert" teas mmmmmmm i get excited just thinking about them.


so i have to do a spring cleaning in my kitchen. there are crumbs in places there shouldn't be and that isn't acceptable. the fridge is due for a cleaning too. just what i feel like doing on a tuesday night ... NOT!

LOL! You're funny! I don't know about chocolate protein powder in oatmeal, but I recently learned that chocolate chips taste fabulous in it. :o)

You are definitely rocking it!

I am very excited to hear about the chocolate protein powder. :P

well if you don't want to clean your fridge you could always clean mine instead ;0)

and I agree warmth is wayyyy more important than fashion when running

I just actually snorted out loud. Protein powder. Gag. But I WILL be checking back for the news report.

I ended up doing my fridge cleaning last week before my friend came. I was stocking the crisper with fruit and veggies and was mildly disgusted with the mess living at the bottom of the drawers. Lost an hour to completely cleaning the whole damn thing. (why don't the boyfriends get these urges?)

What is it about oatmeal that makes it so filling?

Fibre. Lots and lots of fibre.

I have a "beautiful" fleece vest like that too. Remember when fleece was all the rage? Life was easier then...

I need to clean out my fridge and my closet. Dreading both...

I have really been putting stuff off for the same reason...I just don't WANT to do it!!!

You did AWESOME at the book club meeting AND heading out for some exercise regardless of fashion ;p

I didn't have any oatmeal this morning either and I DEFINITELY felt a difference!

That is so awesome about being in the zone and rocking it. Once you get into the zone, it gets easier in some ways to get in that workout or say no to those unnecessary calories!
