Adventures in weight loss, cooking and life

Getting to goal, one choice at a time …

Another fab Friday Five

I haven’t done a Friday Five post for a while. It’s time. So kick back, relax and enjoy.

Five things I’m looking forward to

  1. Breakfast (either Friday or Saturday morning). I’m going to attempt another egg baked in avocado.
  2. My plot group meeting on Saturday. Working out plot snafus, snacking and socializing? What’s not to anticipate?
  3. The start of my vacation on Sunday. ‘Nuff said.
  4. Tuesday’s trip to Salt Lake City to see my brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece.
  5. March 25. That’s the day calls will be made to 2011 Golden Heart finalists, and I’m hoping to get one.

Last five things I ate

  1. Sugar free mint truffles (3 of them)
  2. Bag of peanuts from vending machine at work
  3. Stick of Colby-Jack cheese
  4. Chicken leg quarters from a rotisserie bird (yes, both of them)
  5. Cheese omelet with bacon

5 social media sites I spend too much time on

  1. Facebook (although I’ve stopped wasting time playing Sorority Life)
  2. Twitter
  3. Pinterest (a new obsession)
  4. Goodreads
  5. Does Gmail count?
5 websites I visit regularly
  1. IMDB (Thursday night, my coworkers and I disagreed whether Fred Savage was in “Boy Meets World.” I went straight to IMDB to prove my point: It’s his brother, Ben.)
  2. WordPress. Can’t blog without it.
  3. Google Reader. Can’t keep up on other blogs without that.
  4. Roni’s Weigh. It’s the first blog I started reading, and I still check in every day.
  5. Best Body Fitness. Tina’s new blog is just as great as her old one. I never miss a post. And I’m seriously considering joining her Best Body Bootcamp. I certainly need it!

Your turn! Pick five and share … or create a Friday Five of your own.

Losing weight is easy …

... if you're in a coma, maybe. Most of us have to work at it — every day and every minute. It's not easy to make the right choices, to drink water instead of (diet) soda, pick the grilled chicken sandwich instead of a burger or choose to get up and get moving instead of lounging around in bed. After too many months of making the wrong choices under the guise of dabbling with paleo eating, I've re-joined Weight Watchers (online). My choices may no longer be low-carb or Whole30 or paleo, but the concept is the same: I'm still getting closer to my goal weight one choice at a time.
