I'm alive!!!

Hi All,

I'm alive! Seriously. I just had the craziest drive home in the snow. I can't believe how much snow is out there.

Today was good...I think.

I made my chocolate peanut butter oatmeal for breakfast. It's not a pretty picture, but filling and yummy.




Mid-morning I went for another crazy walk in the cold. I've downloaded some health/fitness/diet webcasts and podcasts and listen to them on my Ipod. I listened to Oprah and Dr. Oz for the 45 minutes I was out today.

When I got back, a friend called to confirm tonight's plans. The restaurant ideas that were being tossed out were not the healthiest (although I flat out refused to go to a buffet). As a result, I kept lunch light.

I had Activia Strawberry Yogurt with Walnuts & some fresh fruit.



We went shopping in the afternoon. I bought furnace filters, garbage bags and fuses. Exciting.

We ended up at Casey's Bar and Grill for dinner (the first place had an hour long wait which we were up for). I had the Moroccan Chicken with Couscous and Zuchinni w/ roasted red pepper.

The chicken was a grilled, skinless breast. Dry, no sauce with a teeny bit of dried apricots and almonds on top. The couscous was dry and not that flavourful. The veggies were good -- not oily at all. I forgot my camera (although my friend would have laughed if I took a pic). I think the whole meal was 720 calories based on the website. It said "a la carte" -- I assuming they mean with the side dishes included on the menu as the chicken alone was obviously about 200 calories. Anyway I ate half.

The my friend and I went to her house, put her kids to bed and watched "Man of Honor". I saw it in the theatre, but still thought it was cute. I at a 220 chocolate frozen dessert thing. It was good and I'm glad I ate it. I definitely had calories left.

Anyway, I have leftovers which is always a good thing. I think I'll keep them for Monday as I have stuff going on tomorrow.

Good night!
