I was so proud of myself to do Coach Nicole's 7 minute exercise band routine. The first exercise, where you raise the band over your head, she warns you just to go as high as you can comfortably. Well, I overdid it, and now I have a little pain in my chest, not a big one, but enough to make me swear off exercise!!! I mean, any little excuse, right???

I made a three bean salad for myself, chock full of all that fiberosity we are supposed to eat. I used a lot of garlic, because I love it. However, the taste in my mouth was just too strong, so I had to eat a yoplait and a half for dessert, trying to get the taste out. I actually felt stuffed, and absolutely would not have eat the yoplait except for this.
How do people get the taste of garlic out????

Saturday night I was all alone for dinner. I had just gotten home from a babysitting stint at my daughter's, and I was too tired to cook. So, first I thought I would have yogurt, bananas, and strawberries. A healthy dinner, right? But halfway through, I just couldn't stick it anymore, and so I made a big batch of popcorn with butter so I could watch a DVD on my new big screen tv. Popcorn goes with a soda, right? So, I happened to have a bottle of gourmet root beer that I had bought for a special occasion.
After my dinner of popcorn and soda, I decided I needed a dessert. I took out some homemade chocolate chip cookies I had in the freezer and a glass of milk. Cookies and milk, very comforting when you are alone on a Saturday night.
But, oddly enough, I could only eat two of them, and I could only drink half the milk. I tossed the other two cookies out.
Very proud of self.

I am really enjoying the book, Julie and Julia. I got out my old copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I have the same edition that Julie "stole" from her mother. I can look up the recipes she talks about.
In addition, I took out a biography about Julia Child that is fascinating and dovetails with the movie and the book. Now, I would like to view some old videos of her cooking show.
Yes, indeed, the thing about a public blog like this is that you cannot write about anything personal. For a private journal, it is best to do it with paper and pen, anyway. Not computer.

The gal in the Julie and Julia movie inspired me to get back to my own blog!!! I got the book from the library, and I am looking forward to reading it. We will see, I am a very picky reader.
I tracked all my foods yesterday, they are all my shared tracker on my spark page. I was not hungry and the calories were under 1800 and I do not understand how I did it!!!
I bought myself a new top to wear and two people told me I looked thinner. So, it really matters what we wear, and we should never wear clothes that make us look bigger!!!
