No Videos Challenge - Week 2 - Monday

squat 5x5x90 lbs
db push press 5x5x25 lbs
chin up 3x12 - all assisted
prone jackknife 3x12

2 activity points. My arms are sore (like hurt sore) from yesterday's festivities. It made push presses a bit difficult but I got through it.

baked potato
chocolate milk [2 pts]
cottage cheese
3 bean soup

I desperately needed to get to the produce stand and the grocery store but I couldn't do it until late afternoon. I've decided that I just don't like plain, nonfat yogurt (even doctored up) so I'm not going to make it (or buy it) any more. I will still buy the flavored stuff I do like and just count points for it. But I just can't gag the yogurt down anymore, and I can't make it in smaller batches. No Mo Yo!

I had a crappy day, emotionally. I'm still exhausted from all this pumpkin fair business, there's drama at work, my house is a disaster and I can't find the time to sit down and eat a real meal. I've talked about this before but when my house is not clean, it drives me nuts. I can't concentrate on anything and I get super irritable. And with the pumpkin fair prep, I've neglected my house. I have two cats, a 6 year old and a husband who is constantly filthy

80 ounces of water and three coffees. 35 weekly points remaining and I used both of my activity points. I'm missing my oil.

Days Binge Free: 8

I feel the same way about my house. It gives me anxiety. Unfortunately since we've been at camp all summer on the weekends, my house is a WRECK! And when it gets this bad, it's too overwhelming for me to clean it. Makes me want to cry.

Sometime try this and see if you like it. 1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt, 1 green (or red) apple chopped, 1 tbsp chopped walnuts, 2 tsp honey. I don't even use the honey since the apple sweetens the yogurt on it's own. It's really good. I can't eat the yogurt plain but this way it's yummy!

You'll have to fill me in on your work drama. I had a fight with my aunt, who is the head of a school kitchen, the other day because I said what they served was crap. She insists it's healthy. Um, mozzarella sticks, french fries and cookies is NOT healthy. I don't care if the fat, calories and sodium are "balanced."

I have tried yogurt that way. I hate it. Yuck. The ONLY way I've really liked nonfat plain yogurt is with pudding mix in it and I don't make that often enough to justify making yogurt.

Work drama is just ridiculous. There are two women who have been doing this for 15-20 years and stuck in their ways. They complain that the other girl who works with us doesn't pull her own weight. Yes, she's a bit slower but she's thorough and the kids love her and she's majorly awesome. The Bitter Bs went to our manager's boss to complain and didn't really get anywhere with it, so now the don't help the other girl at all, and they've cut back on how much they help me. We absolutely NEED a 6th person to work the back area during service and after and don't have it. We get backed up and can't get out of there befor our time is up, so now the director is going to start bitching about paying us past our hours, but we can't help it. And now the Bitter Bs have started whispering to each other whenever one of us is in the room. I think if they hate it that much, they should fuck off. I know damn well I bust my ass and help them when I'm caught up with my shit. But they are leaving the other 3 of us hanging. It sucks.

And don't get me started on the health of our food. I definitely don't think it's the healthiest but it's not really the school's fault. It's the USDA's or whatever. They set the guidelines. The food meets those guidelines. *eyeroll*

Melty said...

Oh I know it's not their fault. But it's ridiculous and she believes it's good for them. Whatever.

I'm glad I don't have to work in situations like that. It makes life miserable.

Yesterday was the first day it bothered me, and I think that's only because I am still completely exhausted from all the pumpkin fair stuff. I do love my job, absolutely.
