I survived Claim Jumpers!

Let this be the reminder to check nutritional stats before going out. Even their salads that sound healthy were pretty horrifying.
But I managed to keep it under 500 calories.
Whew!!

    Ate out last night. I stuck with salad and grilled salmon. I feel like the calories were low. I used a few drops of dressing and absorbed all grease from the Salmon.

Some Yay! and some Boo!

Friday, October 12, 2012

I finished the 1/2 marathon on Sunday.
emoticon
My time wasn't the best.
emoticon
I wasn't last or next to last (although I was convinced I was)
emoticon
I got the pictures from the race yesterday.
emoticon
Aaaaand I managed to gain the usual 4lbs afterwards that I'm just about done getting rid of.
emoticon

Okay, I am perfectly aware that I should be happy that my body and my will managed to get me to the finish line.
I was rocking the first part of the race and (like always) I hit a wall the size of Everest at about 9 miles. I really need to work on that.

And now that I managed, through following my plan to the letter, I almost managed to get back to the weight before the 1/2 marathon.....my friend wants to go to Claim Jumpers for her birthday tonight.
emoticon
Have you **seen** their nutrition stats??? Yiiiiiikes!!!!
emoticon
Even the healthy sounding salads are outrageous. I will be ordering veeery carefully tonight.
emoticon

Thankfully a bunch of us are going to the zoo tomorrow to walk around and see if anyone will let us pet the animals...

Enjoy your time out tonight and time at the zoo tomorrow. Be careful that they don't put you and your friends in a cage!

But I don't want mayo!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

A sandwich place near where I work has a paper to fill out for your sandwich during lunch rush.
emoticon
I always leave mayo and mustard blank. Enough tomatoes and cucumbers and I don't need it.
And yet they ask me every time I'm standing near, "Are you *sure* you don't want mayo??"
*rolling eyes*
"Positive."

Today I went to grab a drink and my sandwich was done when I got back. Headed back to work to find out that they put mayo on it.
emoticon
Easier to eat it than to go back so, like a good Sparker, I entered it into my tracker.
emoticon
Holy $hit! I had forgotten why I don't eat mayo anymore.
emoticon
But ooooooh it tasted yummy.
emoticon
Will have to make sure to actually go swimming tonight....
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have a similar problem with Chipotle when I order online and pick up. I want sour cream, but I want it on the side so I can dip my fork in it and just have a teaspoon or so. I tried not checking the box for sour cream and then writing in at the bottom "sour cream in a cup on the side". 2/3 times they put the sour cream in the bowl. I finally, I realized that the solution was to say nothing (they're good at not putting something the bowl that you haven't asked for, just not good at putting something where you want it). Then when I get to the cashier, I ask for sour cream on the side.

    Without mayo, my life would be bland and flavorless. Haha, it and peanut butter were two things I absolutely REFUSE to give up. I love them so.

Due to this, your blog makes no sense to me. emoticon

Seriously, though, people don't listen AT ALL. No matter how vocal you are, they always seem to miss something!!

    Fortunately I haven't had that problem yet. But I do agree with the person that said "people don't listen". They are on auto-pilot and just run....

    Mayo has been extremely hard for me to give up. Jimmie John's is a sandwich place I love and they pour the mayo on. I was shocked when I looked up the nutrition info on their sandwiches. Majo was fatal there!

I have a hard time with fast food hamburger joints not putting cheese on my hamburgers. Doesn't anybody just eat hamburgers anymore?

Guess this is a sign we both need to start bringing our own food for lunch!

    LMFAO This made me laugh! I have a similar problem with a mucho burrito place near my house. They seem to always want to give me beef instead of chicken and sour cream on my salad. Doesn't seem to matter how many times I say it to the person over the counter, I have had them remake my salad three times now because they but the wrong things on.

I think it's part of the culture we live in, people don't stop and actually listen. They are to busy thinking about what they want to say when your done speaking or thinking about something completely unrelated at all.

I agree with the previous post, bring a big red felt and write "NO MAYO" on the paper lol.

    I've actually never really cared for mayo or mustard. "zomg, you eat it DRY??" is usually the response. To avoid a lengthy discussion, I tell them I'm allergic. If they keep asking, I'll tell them one of them causes instant vomiting, the other instant diarrhea, but I don't remember which causes which ... should we test it?

NEPTUNE1939 10/2/2012 3:02PM

    LOL - The only way to ensure whats being put on or in your sandwich is to make it yourself. You may have to resort marking the paper with a red marker "NO MAYO". Good luck, Earl
