Damn that Joe

I know better than to go to Trader Joe’s and buy things I don’t need, but I did it again today after work. I walked out with this bag that somehow was half empty by the time I got home. Damn it Joe, not cool.IMG_2179

Before I left work I had a yogurt, cheese stick (not string cheese because you can’t string it) and a piece of Ez bread. My focus on more protein rich snacks is doing well at keeping me full until dinner, but I don’t enjoy it as much. Hmmm. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with that yet.IMG_2173IMG_2172

I made quesadillas for dinner. This was mostly because I had guacamole and wanted an excuse to eat it on chips and a quesadilla. It is stuffed with mushrooms, beans, onions and of course cheese.IMG_2176

Then, Ben busted out the TJ’s pb cups. Which he opened after “not hearing me” tell him they were for the 1001st post contest winner. Damn that Ben. I ate them. IMG_2177

Now I am staring in awe at how massively HUGE my hands are. I am a beast.IMG_2178

I need to start doing yoga or taking a walk after work. Yeah, I think that’s a better option than eating cheese curls by the fist full (which is super out of character for me, I usually stick with cereal and ice cream). Busted.

Brussel Fail – The other day I froze some uncooked brussel sprouts to roast later. After they thawed I realized they were super watery and gross. I tried to cook them in the microwave and they were disgusting :( This was devastating as brussel sprouts are my fave veggie this time of year. Boo.

Which brings me to Ben’s Random Comment of the Day:

Me: “Ugh! These brussel sprouts are disgusting. I have to throw them all away.”

Ben: “Yeah, did they taste like someone farted in your mouth? Because that’s what I thought they tasted like when I was a kid.”

    Had me laughing out loud at Ben’s comment. Very descriptive idea of what those sprouts tasted like… now the question remains, who farted in the husband’s mouth or better yet, how does he know what a fart TASTES like?

    I made the same mistake at TJs. I went on Saturday directly after running a 5k and bought all kinds of snacks like caramel corm, mini chocolate peanut butter cups, peanut butter pretzels….BAD idea. I will be paying for it tomorrow at weigh-in.

    Thank you for making the sincere try to give an explanation for this. I think very strong about it and would like to be told more. If its OK, as you reach more extensive wisdom, might you mind including more posts very similar to this one with additional info? It would be extremely helpful and helpful for me and my colleagues.
