ok, so I haven't been all that active. I still log in every day, and today I won the 500 spark goodie points. Since I have more than I know what to do with anyway, I decided to give my active friends goodies. So I picked the rollerblades, and we can spend today at a skating party. Extra points if you can skate in real life today. I can't because 1. my skates are still in the garage somewhere and 2. I'm going to the museum today to see the Magna Carta.

for every person who embraces change and uses it to refresh their outlook, there's another person in the back grumbling because it wasn't broken and why are they fixing it.
Today, I'm the grumbly person. Why? because they changed the spark trophies. I had a beautiful cup trophy that I really liked. Today, I'm back to the medal on a ribbon. And they put in another trophy above that before I can even get to the cup again. Which isn't even a medal or a cup. Maybe tomorrow I can be happy about the changes (I think the extra level makes it easier for me to level up). Today I feel whiny.

how I wish you loved me as much as I love you. Oh delicious sweet iced coffee, you're so good, yet my blood sugar crashes so hard an hour later. Yum, fabulous egg roll - did you have to spill on my shirt?
But thank you spring roll, for being your little 82 calorie self. You, I'll talk to again.

but, I made some tilapia tonight, and it came out great! In the past, I've cooked fillets, but one side always seemed to be overdone while the other side was still raw.
This time, I got the loins at Costco. It couldn't have been simpler - I just baked them in a 400 degree oven for somewhere between 10 & 15 minutes with a little salt and pepper. Then I took them out, turned them over and put on less than 1/2 tsp butter. They were cooked perfectly - still moist, yet flaky.
Now I just need to see where they fit on the 'eat this fish' list. I love fish, and could eat it all the time. Everything from canned tuna to shrimp. It's easy to digest, low in cals, high in protein.
Now if I could just get my carb levels up a touch I'd be doing well.

it was the worst of times. My breakfast was a low point for me - candy and coffee. Some of the candy was sugar-free, but that just made things worse, since it has a laxative effect. However, I was able to rise from there (not so hard, considering how low it was) :-)
Lunch was coffee and popcorn. (ok, not so much of a rise), but dinner - ah dinner. One of the good/bad parts about being unemployed and poor is that I eat at home, instead of eating out. Every day. Whether I want to or not. But I have started cooking more, instead of just heating things up. Tonight I made sort of a Hungarian inspired dish - ground beef, basmati rice, tomato paste and lots of smoked paprika. Added some greek yogurt at the very end. Delicious! It's still sitting in my stomach like a ton of bricks, but it was good going down.
I have enough to freeze, too, I think. (That depends on if the boy starts in on it.) But all this obsessive tracking is really helping to remind me that everything I eat counts. Not just the good food, or just the junk food. Everything.
