OK, no I didn't flake yesterday and not blog. It was a crazy, busy day and didn't have time. However, it was a good day! Got to do some shopping with my sister which is always nice. We went to Target, of course. Then, I was starving (only had a luna bar for breakfast), so we went to Zenkou Chicken (can't remember how to spell it). I had a schwarma plate with some vegies, hummus, tehina and a pita. It was very good. Except, gave me heartburn. I think I have to go to the doctor to get this problem checked out. Did my carpool and then, had to get my DD back to school for our first ever Trunk or Treat. Before I left, I had 0% fage greek yogurt w/ cherry pomegranate. Oh so YUMMY!! Here's my little princess:

She's a ladybug!!

We had a great time at the Trunk or Treat. Everyone did a great job. Lots of candy though, especially when you go around 3 times to all the cars. I only had 2 mini pieces & my handful of almonds. So proud of myself! Got home about 7:45 and ate dinner: homemade red bean and rice w/ a large salad. For dessert, I had a trader joe's chocolate & oat bar. Like the peanut butter one better.

Today was another very busy day. DD had a soccer game this morning. Had to get her there at 9:30. Dropped her off and came home to get my DH. On our way to the field, we stopped off at Starbuck's and I had my venti non-fat decaf misto w/ s.f. vanilla. Oh, forgot about breakfast: I made myself pancakes: 1/2 c of oatmeal, 3/4 c egg whites, splenda, cinnamon and 1/2 banana. Very good and filling.

After the game, we headed on over to USC. It was parent's weekend, so we went to my son's fraternity bar-b-que. By this time, I was so hungry. However, the line was so long for food, so we waited. My DD asked her big bro if they could play Beer Pong! I know, she's only 8, but, her big bro got another team together and they played. And, they won. Here are the two siblings:


Elie going for the cup. Rachel looking on!

After the game, had to feed my little one. The line was short. However, the only thing that I could eat was salad and fruit. The cheese burgers weren't an option. I did take a bite, though. They were good. Dessert? Nope. Cupcakes and different pies. Had a bite of my DH's cupcake which was good. It was enough. Ate my luna bar in the car on the way home. Then, had some 0% fage yogurt w/ s.f. jelly.

I texted my buddy, Pagona, to see what she was up to and she told me she was running the Rock N Roll 1/2 marathon tomorrow. Well, I wanted to run with her. So, I had an hour to go back downtown to register. (I was just there!). My DH didn't think I would make it, but, I did with a minute to spare. So, that is why I am so EXCITED! I am running my first 1/2 marathon tomorrow with my buddy. A lot of my firsts we have done together: climbed Mt. Baldy, climbed Mt. Whitney, and now, this.

For dinner, I had tai food: chicken chow mein, red chicken curry and some rice. For dessert, I had a WW latte bar. Now, I have to fold my laundry and finish getting ready for tomorrow. Pagona will be at my house at 5:30. Race starts at 7:30. Can't wait to tell you how it went. Hopefully, I'll have some good pictures, along with a good time!

Until tomorrow-
