Club Soda + Crystal Light Fruit Punch Mix + Pineapple Chunks = Fizzy Fruity Pineapple Punch

Saturday, June 12, 2010

** This was on a hungrygirl post and it sounds pretty good.

Club Soda + Crystal Light Fruit Punch Mix + Pineapple Chunks = Fizzy Fruity Pineapple Punch

PER SERVING (entire drink): 40 calories, 0g fat, 76mg sodium, 8g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTSŪ value 1*

Yummy low-cal punch in a FLASH!!! Dissolve half a two-serving packet of Crystal Light into a cup of icy-cold club soda. Add 1/4 cup of chilled, juice-packed pineapple chunks. Then give the whole thing a stir and slurp away! It's a bubbly spin on something ordinary, and you will LOVE it. Pssst... If you want to make it even MORE fun, freeze the pineapple chunks first!

Acceptable Intruders: Vodka or rum (only if you're of legal drinking age, of course), a cute straw, a paper umbrella, and fruity garnishes!

    Sounds good! I haven't had time to read my hungrygirl emails lately. I'll have to start.

Need to get my head in the game

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Man. If I leave this job, maybe I'd have more time to exercise! Though I'm probably just saying that. Somewhere I saw: "Somewhere out there, someone busier than you is exercising right now". Haven't made up my mind if I should quit my job, give it a shot or ??
I guess my parents are no longer tracking their weight for our biggest loser challenge. Just as well, my mom won a years supply of Domino's pizza from a community business expo.

    I saw that post also. I have 2 more days of work left until I'm off for the summer. I keep thinking now I'll be able to take longer walks, etc. We'll see. I was a stay at home mom up until this past Fall and I put lots of weight on. Plus my boys are teenagers so I wasn't at home taking care of little kids. Good Luck in your decision.

Today, I was told that the project offered to me at work last Tuesday is no longer an option. I can choose between going back into sales, or we can terminate our working relationship. Some choice!
Now, I must decide if I want to give it a shot in sales again? I was not happy before with the sales pressure/quotas/etc and it's only gotten worse with the government changes/regulations and changes to our major products we can sell. It's extremely stressful and really not financially feasible as it would pretty much result in another pay decrease. And probably a 5 day workweek, not the 4 that I've come to like.

I was offered for a pay guarantee the month of May and June so technically I have some time to make a decision. I just feel like if I know that I wasn't going to stay that it isn't right to stay just to collect the benefits/paycheck. If I don't decide in the next few days; however, I would have to resume my sales role and get started basically.

I'm not sure if I want to say "See ya" right now and go work for a friend as an independent sales agent which allows flexibility ( my own hours, work from home, no dress code, but still sales) or If I should look at trying to get back in to a previous company in a NON-sales position? Or go in a totally opposite / new direction?

    Wow, you are at a crossroads. Believe in yourself, you will be successful. If both choices don't make you happy keep your eyes open, opportunity awaits.

    I say follow your gut. That gut feeling always knows and is usually right. You might ask for advice here and there but it all boils down to you and how you feel. Even if things may seem rough in the beginning, with God by your side, things should smooth out evenly. Hope this helps.

This and that

Not working on the losing weight thing. I need to. Right now I've been focused this weekend on helping get ready for a garage sale, a Sunday wedding and not quite sure about my job. I've also been doing a Monday night bible study class and I wish that I was using those 2 hours for exercise! It will end the end of May though so I should be able to tough it out. I'm also having problems with a tooth that I put a crown on ( the temporary crown went on perfectly; however, I've had issues with the permanent one)
Tried a sample of Silk brand Almond Milk (vanilla flavor) at Target today. Not my favorite. I should have tried the original flavor ( the sample lady said original is most popular; I typically drink plain soymilk)
If anyone is in the twin cities area and wants to go for a bike ride or ?? let me know!

    It sounds like you have a busy weekend, sometimes exercise takes a back seat for awhile when we have events we must do, you just start again , and even 10 minutes helps. Getting ready for the garage sale has got to involve movement so see you are still getting some cardio in even thouth it isn't as involved as you would like it to be. I aways wanted to give soy milk a try but just keep putting it off, in your opinion why is the plain better than the almond? Have a great time at the wedding and good luck with the garage sale.

After much internal coaxing, I got my bike out to go for a ride. Bumped into a neighbor and shared about Whoo.
Then, I went for a ride in the wind. I surprised myself and went further than I thought that I would. I went just over 7 miles. Not bad. I used the super cool fitness tracker here on sparkpeople. ( I search under the key words "map" and route") Just need to keep track of minutes to figure out how fast I was going. FOR NEXT TIME!

    Awesome! I didn't know about the map thing, so maybe I'll use that to figure out how much I ride with my kids. Of course, it's a slow pace, but maybe I can do it sans kids in the evening for better results. :)
