** 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!

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.

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?

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!

After much internal coaxing, I got my bike out to go for a ride. Bumped into a neighbor and shared about sparkpeople.com 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!
