Gimme a pound!

Another -.04 for this weigh in. I'll take it. Anytime I lose while Tom is in town is a great one for me. I had two birthday dinners this week and went to the gym 3 times instead of my usual 5. Next week will be a very very good weigh in. I am 2 lbs away from getting out of this "decade" and I'm going to do it. I was kind of hoping that yesterdays' meeting would have been free to make up for the lack of a leader last Saturday. They gave us vacation vouchers, which is nice enough. Apparently now you only get two vacation coupons when you first sign up and that's it. If I'm not mistaken, you used to get one every eight weeks.

I made some delicious 2 point muffins. I took a box of lemon cake mix, 1 can of diet sprite, and a cup of blueberries. Mixed all together, baked in the oven, and voila- deliciousness. I had quite the productive Sunday. I went to the gym in the morning, cleaned up my place, did 3 loads of laundry and ran errands with friends. On our way around town, we all came to the conclusion that we were starving. The driver opts for Burger King. After reading the menus and the caloric information, my friend and I shared a combo. I forget what they're called, but they're these mini-burgers. One combo gives you four, a fry, and a drink. We split it and it was plenty. I might have had all of 6 fries and my two two-bite burgers so all in all could not have been more than six points.

It has probably been over a year since the last time I ate Burger King, and will most likely be another until the next visit. Wasn't all that delicious as I remembered, and I could think of many,many other things I'd like to have in the place of BK.

Off to catch up on my blog reading!

Isn't it funny how that happens? Used to be a couldn't go a week without Wendy's. Now I can't imagine going there at all. If I'm going to be bad, I want it to be GOOD bad, you know? Those muffins sound divine...how do you people get to eat that stuff? I know I wouldn't be able to regulate it; I'd inhale the entire batch. That's my problem. Glad you can enjoy them! Have one for me! ;-D

You're going in the right direction, that's great! :) Those muffins sound good and great job on splitting the meal.

Yum, the muffins sound easy and delicious!

I find the anticipation of the fast food is better then the actual taste.. the tricks our minds play on us!

Interesting post... Looks like flash memory is finally starting to take off. Hopefully we'll start seeing decreasing solid-state drive prices real soon. Five dollar 32 gigabyte SDs for your DS flash card... sounds good to me!
