- I had already done the jumping edition of P90X (which is getting so much easier) this morning.
- It was only one slice, which I had factored into my points for the day.
- It had red peppers on it.
- I had made it myself and JESUS it was delicious.

As we were walking, there was this really lanky guy pushing a bass. Since his legs were as tall as Nikki's whole self, he had a good stride going and was pretty much keeping up with us even though I felt like we were walking blazing fast. He was laughing at us as we were mocking a couple who we'd passed, "if he's gonna call me a mother fucker, I'm gonna act like a mother fucker!" (or Nikki's version, "if you're gonna call me a mother fucker, I'm gonna fuck your mother!")
So then conversation ensued...
Bass Boy (BB): "Why aren't you guys running? Powerwalking is for fat people. You guys are like... fit."
Nikki: "Because if we run, we can't talk to each other. And because we're lazy."
BB: "You're not lazy. Lazy people do the elliptical. Lazy people do the elliptical while watching People's Court and Judge Joe Brown."
Note: I absolutely do the elliptical 90% of the time I work out, and love to watch HGTV or, ironically, The Food Network while doing so. Yeah so, I loved him. We bid adieu and sent him on his way.
Double fiber honey wheat English muffin - 1 pt [whole grain]
Laughing Cow - 1 pt [dairy]
Morningstar Farms sausage links - 1 pt [protein]
Starbucks skinny vanilla latte - 2 pts [dairy complete]
An awesome salad from Cer-te, with my other gay boyfriend/great friend/hair stylist, Dave.
Lettuce & tomatoes - 0 pts [veggie]
With couscous, lentils, olives, black beans and tuscan white beans - 4 pts [fiber/protein fantasy - protein complete]
Feta cheese - 2.5 pts [dairy super complete]
Oil & vinegar - 2.5 pts [oil complete]
2 little brownie bites - 2 pts [fatty orgasmo complete]
Of course we stopped at a Mexican restaurant on the way home from our walk.
7 tortilla chips & salsa - 2 [veggie]
Veggie fajitas: Grilled broccoli, squash, zucchini and cauliflower; sauteed peppers, onions - 3 pts for any oil used although I honestly think there was barely any [veggie definitely complete!]
Whole wheat wrap to substitute flour tortillas - 3 pts [whole grain complete]
I dipped into my weekly flex points a little bit, but I feel okay about it because I was eating almost entirely HGs all day, with the exception of the brownie bites.

B: I mixed it up!
Double fiber honey wheat english muffin - 1 pt [whole grain]
w/Laughing Cow light - 1 pt [(fake) dairy]
2 Morningstar Farms breakfast links - 1 pt [protein]
L: from Metro
Salad with peas, beets, tomatoes, mushrooms - 0 pt [veggies x3]
...feta cheese - 1 pt [dairy, but probably not enough to count]
...kidney beans - 1 pt [protein]
...balsamic & oil - 2.5 pts [oil]
Tomato garden vegetable soup - 2 pts [veggies]
Haven't had it yet but since I've only used 9.5 pts, I think I'll have another Skinny Vanilla Latte and really get my dairy put away. - 2 pts [dairy]
That'll mean I have 9.5 pts for the rest of today, and the only HG I still have to get is maybe another fruit/veggie, since my servings were a bit ambiguous between the soup/salad.
Bobby - not to be a sleuth, but I am thinking I don't want to blog whammys as they happen. Obviously it'll be clear with the menus here, but with exercise I'm thinking no. This is still a competition after all... and I still want to kick your ass.
Ro-cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha-cha, cha-cha, sex me so good I said blah blah blah. Work it.
EDIT: As of 5:14pm I still have not had my Starbucks, but I did have 1 mini York peppermint pattie. Psha 1 point of glory.

High fiber cereal with berries and skim - 4 pts [fruit, dairy]
1.5 oz whole wheat pasta, with oil and my Italian veggie stir fry mixed in, 1 tbsp grated cheese - 5.5 pts [whole grain, oil, veggie]
1/2 cup cooked black beans - 2 pts [protein]
Starbucks skinny vanilla latte - 2 pts [dairy]
Grillers Vegan veggie burger - 1 pt [protein]
on a toasted double fiber honey wheat English muffin - 1 pt [whole grain]
and lettuce - 0 pt [veggie]
Homemade sweet potato fries (7 oz) - 3.5 pts [veggie]
tossed in 1 tsp oil before roasting - 1 pt [oil]
with ketchup - 1 pt
I also decided that, since our contest ends one month from today, I have to buckle down. I know I've been saying that for the past few weeks, and it hasn't been happening. No more "oh it's the weekend, okay, I can have ice cream every day," bologna. My "weekend" started out being only Sat-Sunday, and now my reckless eating pretty much takes place Thurs-Sunday. That's over half the week. This could be why I'm not seeing the results of my dreams, you think?
Anyway, in order to keep myself on track I'm reverting back to basics and I'm going to commit myself to blogging my daily menus again. When I was doing that, I was seeing bigger losses and I was being more responsible. I want 5 more lbs gone by the end of this thing.
So far today...
B: High fiber cereal with berries and skim - 4 pts (my body is getting too used to this, so I am going to have to find a new breakfast.)
L: We have a catered lunch from Havana Central (cuban), but I brought some leftover pasta to try and avoid that mess.
1.5 oz whole wheat pasta, with oil and my Italian veggie stir fry mixed in, 1 tbsp grated cheese - 5.5 pts

Anyway, no workout today, but I did play Guitar Hero. That doesn't count, does it?
APs, yes. Even if it meant coming home and eating an egg white to get in my last protein, and eating a piece of toast with oil on it (and salt), regardless of the fact I was terrifyingly nauseous. No time left to fuck around here.
This is my public declaration that I *have* to wake up early tomorrow and Shred. I'm writing this here so that when my alarm goes off at 7am and I go to hit snooze, guilt will overcome me and I will rise... From my nice, warm bed.
I know this is more than 2 days late but I hope you can forgive me -
Monday: HG & AP
Total whammies: 45.
Also, we've got a bit of a mice problem in our kitchen. This might have been a gift from the skinny gods, as it caused me to purge EVERYTHING in our snack cabinet (since the mice had eaten through 1/2 of it anyway.) Ew. ew. ew.
Fortunately (unfortunately) I still have my bag of Easter candy, which I think I should just throw away if I want to have any chance at this.

(Oh before I start, Bobby talked about instating a rule that "whammies" only count if they're blogged about within 2 days of getting them. Are we doing this, BoRo? If so, I got a double whammy today, and a double whammy yesterday, and my APs in Monday.)
At the gym, like any other minute of my life, I was planning out my next meal. I decided I wanted something with mushrooms, since I'm on a mushroom binge lately (could be worse, right?). So I stopped at the little market on my way home and got some, and decided I would use the tomato I bought yesterday and didn't use, and our plethora of other frozen veggies to make a nice Italian stir fry. Is there such thing as an Italian stir fry? There is now.
Anyway, here's what I put in it:
- A spray of PAM
- Frozen asparagus, snapped into about 2" pieces
- About 1 tsp of chopped garlic
- Frozen spinach
- Frozen broccoli that I defrosted in the microwave first
- Portabello mushrooms, quartered
- 1/2 tomato, gutted and diced
- A splash of oil to get things moving
- A pinch of parsley
- Garlic salt
- Canamella seasoning (salt, garlic, black pepper, capsicum)
- A sprinkle of Parmesan cheese at the end
I basically just let it saute over medium heat as I kept throwing ingredients in. I then toasted 2 pieces of light wheat bread and drizzled EVOO on it and then put more of that Canamella seasoning on it. This is my new favorite thing on earth, it is so good.
Overall points for this meal? 4 would be generous. SERIOUSLY. (say 3 pts for the oil, 1 pt for the bread, maybe .5 for the cheese, and veggies are f-r-e-e-).
I wish I didn't inhale it as fast as wolverene, and I could have taken a picture. Besides the garlic/salt overdose I'll be experiencing any minute now, it was divine.
Few things in life make me as happy and satisfied as food does. Very few.

5 pieces of bacon (it was good bacon, OK?)
a piece of ham with honey mustard dressing
snazzy raspberry and apple stuffed French toast that I made from a Weight Watchers recipe (I had good intentions)
...another serving of breakfast potatoes
a glass of OJ
a glass of fruit punch
an egg salad sandwich (made with my dyed eggs of course) made with light mayo & dijon mustard on light bread
Another small piece of ham
Cadburry cream egg
another bite of Alex's Cadbury cream egg
about 500 Peeps
Starburst jellybeans (sugar high through the roof at this point, I couldn't stop singing a song to Alex about "my little china baby doll"... I don't know)
Oh... and a Taco Bell bean burrito, because that was necessary. So was drinking some of Alex's Mountain Dew. And taking a bite of his cheesy gordita crunch.
Fortunately, and so sick of me, but I justify pigging out THAT much because of the fact that the night before, I drank so much that I threw up and also threw up my Greek salad dinner. So to me, I was just re-eating dinner...or something.
A really healthy approach to dieting... right here. FML.
I am trying out for WFG on Broadway. That means Worlds Fattest Girl.

Thursday, April 9, 2009
My computer has sadly been out of commision since this weekend, and is now in the shop. I thought I could blog from my phone but it was being stupid. So now I'm using Craig's computer to blog/charge my phone/watch Lost/see Katy's torso.
I'd like to congratulate Katy on the completion of her challenge and hope she plans on claiming her prize soon. Also, when the bet is over "The Former Fatties" should probably turn into DVD series in which Katy just shakes her ass and I can be heard guffawing off camera. That throwback picture was awesome. It should be noted that I went out and bought that shirt the day of that party because I had lost some weight and wanted to get something that I looked skinny in. I just put it in a bag to give away because it is huge on me.
I will be completing my challenge, even though it doesn't seem to have a prize, as I have extra motivation to look really great on Monday. I really want to tell you all about it, World, and even planned to video blog about it, but I think I'll wait until after it is done. Katy and I have spoken a lot about our tendency to tell the whole world about something and then it not happen, so I don't want to jinx it. I will say though that while in all likelyhood nothing comes of this, I never would have even tried had it not been for the Former Fatties. I think I've officially become the Emo Former Fattie. Sorry, I just love not being obese.
Due to computer mayhem, I'll be posting whenever I get a computer opportunity, but I've been keeping track via Weight Watchers mobile on my phone for a few days.
Finally, I really eat throughout the day, so I'm just listing things in the order I ate them rather than giving my meals names.
TUESDAY (aka "Sausage Day")
Total Points: 30 / 30
Whammies: 1 (I worked out, but assumed when I was counting all my points I was getting my HG's. I was not.) 36 total whammies.
- 1 Leftover turkey sausage with some onions and peppers on a potato roll - 6
- 2 eggs and a potato roll - 6
- 1 Apple - 1
- 3/4 cup Special K Protein Plus & 1/2 cup FiberOne - 1!
- 2 chicken sausages on potato rolls (I guess it was more "potato roll day" than "sausage day"), with entire box of frozen brocolli - 11.5
- At this point I had 4.5 points left, so I had one serving of tostitos with some salsa. The chips are 3 pts for a serving, but hard to measure, and the salsa is negligible, but I piled it on, so I'd say it came to about right - 4.5
Total Points: 33/33 (Using my 3 activity points from doing the Shred, Level 3)
Whammies: 2, for a total of 38. How many do you have KF?
I'm not sure why blogger has begun double spacing, but I'm sure Katy is not going to be happy about it.
- 3 eggs and a potato roll - 8
- Salad with egg, oil & vinegar, avocado - 6
- 2 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - 5 glorious points
- Dinner was tough as I went out with some friends visiting from the UK. We stumbled upon Katy and my old stomping ground, Josie's. I had one piece of whole grain bread (WHAMMIE!) Salmon, and mashed sweet potatos. As best I can figure, that comes to 14 points. It could be a little low as the mashed potatos were too delish not to contain lots of butter/cream/sin but I also think the 9 points ww.com tells me to give my salmon is a little high. So if it ends up a point or two higher, s'all good, I've got bonus points.
I do seem to have plateaued a bit, hopefully this week will help me break past that. I need to remind myself that one pound a week till the end of the challenge is MORE than enough.

So get ready, Internet, here's my torso.
And no, those last two moves were not Jillian Michaels. That was all me.
Bobby - ready for your challenge? I want you to journal your food/Points and blog your meals for at least 5 out of the 7 next days.

... but this is one.
This is the day Bobby and I met, wasted, at an industry party last June.
Bobby, you're not even recognizable.
Me, I basically look the same. I weighed about 4 lbs more than I do now. I gained weight from June-December, and have lost it all and then some since then.
(ps BoRo - I just laughed my ass off at your videos. I'll make one later)
