Cupcakes, Cookies, And Rain...Oh Myyyyyyyy

Thursday, January 24, 2013

To barrow from George Takei...Oh Myyyyyy!! It's raining here in Vegas! That gets a double emoticon emoticon !! I love the rain and my new car does excellent in it. Much better then my old Mustang (knocking on wood here!) emoticon But I still need to be careful when driving in the rain. Most people here just DO NOT know how to drive in anything other then sunshine. And even then a lot of people just plain do not know to drive! Rain also means that I'm going to have to wash my car when it's done, which looks like maybe Sunday.

They gave us cupcakes at work today. It's to celebrate an achievement by our company. I was going to stay strong. The cupcakes were in the Cafe and that meant walking down two flights of stairs and across the courtyard. I was weak. A couple of us did go down but I only had one. And it was regular sized one...not the big ones I get sometimes from Gigi's. It was coconut with coconut frosting and blue, sprinkle coconut flakes. It was delicious! I did log it and I adjusted my food tracker for it.

And one of my evil co-workers brought in frosted animal cracker cookies! I LOVE those things. I ate two servings (like 16 cookies!). Again I logged them and adjusted for them. You know..it's not so much the taste of them as the sensation of biting into them and chewing them. Strange huh? Oh well...this afternoon I have resisted both more cupcakes (they moved the left overs into our break room just down the hall) and more cookies (setting just a few cubes from me). I will be strong the rest of the day! emoticon

I have also logged part of dinner. Which a pork loin roast in the crock pot. I added a few frozen baby red taters to it. It should be all done by the time I get home tonight. Then all I need to do is cut and serve! emoticon Of course there will be dishes to do after dinner. But I use a cooking bag made for my crock pot so I won't have to clean that.

An update on hubby: He saw a PA yesterday afternoon at the Take Care Clinic in Wal Mart. The PA gave him two Rx. One for pain and one is an anti inflammatory. He also gave hubby a referral for X-Rays of his shoulder, then told him most likely hubby will need surgery. We already knew that, but now we can get the ball rolling on it. I was a bit worried about the pain pills. Hubby is allergic to codeine and the pain pills were in the codeine family. He took half of one then I watched him like a hawk. The pharmacist had him buy some Benadryl in case he had a reaction, and I told him...first sign of trouble and I'm calling 911! But he was OK with it and it did help a lot. emoticon

I did do my workout today. I wasn't going to because I was so sore from the treadmill the last two days. But with the cupcake and cookies I decide I couldn't afford to skip it. I went back to the elliptical today and did 53 mins or so. I'm still sore but it's not any worse then before working out. So emoticon for me! emoticon

OK...I'm done with my rambling for today. I'm going to enjoy our rainy weather while I can. All too soon it'll be hot and sunny all the time. Have a great Thursday!

    emoticon You did great with enjoying the Treats in moderation, and in dealing with them being added to the Tracker and Exercising!

    Glad Hubby is getting some relief with the Problem getting resolved soon, hopefully!! emoticon

    I get giddy every time you tell me you didn't ditch your workout. I am SO freakin' proud of you, girl! And, btw, I am that way with ginger snaps. It's that crunch or something when I eat one that is soooo satisfying! We're having rain here, too. Freezing rain. Couldn't even walk down the driveway this morning to get the mail. You could have ice skated on the stupid thing! Hugs, Calen~

    I love that diet plan! Just look smaller than everyone else around you!

    I have also been snacking like crazy today and I wanted to rest but now I cannot afford to. Oh well, better get to sweating here soon. Have a good one!
