I have every other Sunday off, and I have declared it "lazy Sunday".
I watch TV and sit on the couch and pretty much do nothing. Well, I do something because I am incapable of doing nothing. I usually do laundry and some cleaning.
Last night, my boyfriend and I went to dinner and the movies. We went to Chili's to eat. I am surprised at how "bad" their food actually is. They do have lighter options on their menu ( I chose the Margarita Chicken) but you have to chose VERY carefully! We did the 2/$20 which includes an appetizer. I didn't eat any, but he got the 1/2 order of Texas Cheese Fries. I looked up the nutritional info just because... 1240 calories just for a 1/2 order! He ate them all. Oddly, the thing I was tempted by the most wasn't the fries, cheese or bacon. It was the slices of jalapeņo peppers. My meal, had I ate the entire thing would have been 650 calories. I ate a little under 1/2 of the dinner and will be eating the other half tonight for dinner. My boyfriend got the Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadilla which was 1450. I shudder to think! Post op, between his appetizer and meal he consumed more calories than I do in 3 days!
We went to see Zero Dark Thirty... I wasn't that impressed. It was long, and for the most part boring. I think it is a good story, but I think it would have worked better as a documentary.
I have the week off work and am looking forward to going to the gym and doing a whole lot of nothing

Lots of fun stuff going on the last few days!
I went shopping and out to dinner on Tuesday. It was awesome. I went to State College since they have a few stores we don't have in Altoona. I mainly wanted to check out Express because back in the day, they were the sister store to Lane Bryant and all of their clothes were such good quality.
I ended up looking in Express and not finding anything to my liking. So, I went to my two fall back stores... American Eagle and Aeropostale.
I bought 3 shirts and Aero and 2 pair of jeans at American Eagle. The jeans are a size 8 - but I was able to squeeze into a SIZE 6!!! They looked horrible. Skin tight, horrible camel toe, and I couldn't breathe at all... however, I did get them on and get them buttoned and zipped... yay me!
We went to dinner at Applebee's - and I got my usual - Signature Sirloin w/ Garlic Herb Shrimp. It is my absolute fave! I eat half of it, and take the other half home. It comes with potatoes, and I usually don't eat them at all. Sometimes I may eat one or two chunks, but I am not a huge fan on regular potatoes. I like sweet potatoes alright though.
When we were in Applebee's it starting snowing out. The ride home wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I am one of those weird-o people that actually like driving in the snow. I don't like driving on the interstate however. I will take the back roads, which is what I did. I took it slow and Paul and I enjoyed talking.
Today I met with my trainer. We are working on my legs. I am a bit on the wobbly side. I need more leg strength. It was a great workout and I am pretty sore.
I think that is all for now

I had a doctors appointment at 10:30 today. I got there early, like I always do. I waited... and waited... finally at 2:30, I left. Doc caught me on the way out, and I told her, I was sorry, but I needed to leave. I have been waiting over 4 hours, and I had somewhere I needed to be at 3. As it stood, I wasn't going to make it on time.
I got my co-pay check and left.
I didn't want to be rude, but holy crow! I am used to waiting at my doctor's office. When I have a 10:30 appointment, I am usually out of there by 12:30-1:00. Which is ridiculous too, but nothing I am not willing to deal with. I usually back a lunch, and take a book and settle in. What is nice is that they will call you back and put you in the room, so you don't have to sit in the waiting room.
It just irks me. I missed my workout because I had to meet my Father at 3 (more on that in a few) and I was still in her office at 2:30!!
After the B.S at the doctor, I literally sped to my parents house to meet my Dad. We went to see The Hobbit. It was a fantastic movie! I loved it!
We then went to Chick-Fil-A for dinner. I had a 4 piece grilled nugget and a small bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. It was fantastic!!
I think that is all for now

Remember that crazy diet from way back when?
Who out there didn't try it at some point in our lives? I watched my Mother and Grandmothers both do it time and time again. Needless to say, it never worked. The only good thing that came from it was... THE SOUP! I love the stuff.
I decided that since I have been eating Campbells like it is going out of style, I would make my own. I made my own variation of it over the years, and am pretty sure I almost have the perfect recipe
I am going with my Dad tomorrow - We are going to see The Hobbit and then out to dinner. I am not sure where we are going, but I am hoping TGI Fridays - yumm.. I love their Chicken! I usually get the Dragonfire Chicken. It comes with rice, but I usually tell them no rice. Sometimes, they will let me get an extra side of broccoli, sometimes they won't. I guess it depends on who the server is.
I have to go to the doctors tomorrow too. She just wants to check in with me, make sure I am being healthy and not wasting away to nothing. After that... I am hitting the gym providing she doesn't take too long.
all in all it will be a good day!
