But you know it is chocolate, right?

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Pretty much every morning I take my boss' Starbucks card and pick her up a coffee on the way in. I like my boss...I like her with caffeine...AND I like being employed.


While waiting in the drive thru for the order the girl offered me a sample of some chocolate thing. Between yesterday and this morning I had to check to see if I had a tattoo on my forehead that says "I am starving! Please feed me sugar!"

I smiled and said, "Thanks...but no thanks."

"But you know it is chocolate, right??"


I didn't tell her why, but there was an urge to get out of my car, drop my pants and show her my ass so that she could *see* why I didn't want it.


Sadly, it was cold out so I didn't.

But still....sheeesh!!

    Too Funny! It makes you wonder what the other customers are like if she has to "explain" to you that it's chocolate.

I'm still laughing!

    People really want to give you free food!! Perhaps you are unaware of a drooling problem?

I would have wanted to do the same thing to that girl offering chocolate...

But it is free....

Monday, February 14, 2011

It has been a bit of a wacky day, so I decided that Subway sounded good for lunch.

6" dressing...all the veggies.

The nice girl who rang me up said, "Everyone gets a free cookie today. Which one do you want??"


She doesn't know anything about me, so I very nicely said, "Oh, that is sweet, but no thanks."

"Are you *sure*???"

Really?? "Yes. I am sure."

" is free...."

Holy crap! "I get that. Still gonna pass. You can have mine if you want."

She just shook her head as she rung me up.

All of this made me think of the old adage, "There is no such thing as a free lunch."

    Wow, colour me impressed, well done for resisting. It truly is a greed driven society when they practically have your arm up your back to accept a 'free' cookie, I would have stood there and demanded a free piece of fruit... But then I'm always causing hassle in these places. emoticon

    SAMBIDEXTROUS, YOU have resisted temptation. WooHoo! You have your goals and that did not fit into the schedule. Good going. Stay the course and you will see great results. I noted the comment above from FABOOMAMA about COSTCO. When I go into either SAMS or COSTCO I am chewing gum just to help me resist the temptation to try one of the "free" samples.

    My husband and I were just talking about people's obsession with free stuff. Like the samples at Costco. It's a mini riot everytime they have brownies and what not. Great job saying no!

Good ol' Dr Seuss!

Monday, February 14, 2011

Here is a quote that I have hanging on my Camelbak.

I started carrying it when my BFF got diagnosed with breast cancer (along with a keychain that has a bat on it), but it works for so many things. Of course, she has one too....


I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me! - Dr Seuss

The knee is still a bit sore... so there was quite a bit of frozen peas sitting on it today.

Still managed a bit of cardio but the rest was all abs and arms. emoticon

There is probably going to be some old man groaning in my future....

Walking and the Hulk Voice

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Today I did the 6 mile walk since the knee surgery. emoticon

And now....who has two thumbs and should ice her knee?? This lady!

I walked a 3 mile loop and was feeling so good that I went a second time. It didn't hurt that this was the view...

I decided to treat myself with a trip to Whole Foods right after. Don't know if you are familiar with Whole Foods, but their deli is emoticon

I did have a conversation with myself about the whole tray of yummy bacon sitting out for just *anyone* to put in a container. I briefly wondered how much it would be if I filled my container with just bacon. I did not do it.

The Hulk Voice was not happy. You know the Hulk Voice. The conversation went something like this:


Voice of Reason: No. There is some lovely tofu right over there. We should get that.


Voice of Reason: But we like tofu. Remember??


Voice of Reason: Okay, you can have 2 pieces, but we are getting fruit too.

HV: *putting down table* OKAY.

See???? Told you that you know the Hulk Voice....
