Well it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm eating lunch at my desk. Funny enough, my lunch looks almost EXACTLY like the photo above. And it's delish! Have I told you I've started a protein shake diet supplement diet thingy? It's going very well. I subsititute one or two meals per day with this wicked gross shake and voila - slim Very Josie! Well, not yet but it's a work in progress. :)
An added bonus to drinking these shakes is since they are not very appetizing, when I have actual food, like today's salad, it's like I'm eating ambrosia. Soooooooooo good.
The guy at GNC told me to mix ftuit or peanut butter in the shake to make it more palatable. My first try was with the peanut butter, which if anything made it worse. Next I tried mixing in frozen blueberries and that was good! (well, good enough). I think the tartness of the blueberries cuts the uber sweetness of the vanilla cream shake.
The other benefit is that according to GNC guy I must workout before I drink the shake so I've been doing that....5-6 days per week! Unheard of for me, but I'm doing it.
The end product is my knee will hurt less, and that's the main goal right now. Although it's a catch-22. I cannot strain, bend or aggravate my knee, yet exercise is beneficial to my knee.
So I get home last night and do an awesome work out.....you know the kind where you think about quitting halfway through and then not only do you finish, but do even more than you planned on. So I'm done and Sugar Bear is watching TV and I start watching while I contemplate making my
He was watching a tv show called Operacion Repo, which is on TruTV channel. I hate that channel because the shows are not appropriate for a 12 year old IMO. But Sugar Bear is like an attorney. If he is forbidden to watch a show, I have to provide reasons in triplicate as to why, and then the debate begins. Whatever valid reason I have, he tries to tear it apart.
I really was too tired for an argument and this show didn't seem all that terrible.........at first. But omg! Those poor people! Not only are they getting their vehicle repossessed, but if they say boo to these bullies they get beaten or pepper sprayed! In the 15 minutes of the show I watched I saw about 6 people get pepper sprayed in the eyes at close range. All the while the repo guys (who should really try my GNC shake) were complaining about the behavior of these poor folks.
Anyway 15 minutes into it, I decide I cannot watch people in pain, being bullied and harmed so I tell Sugar Bear to change the channel. "Why? What's wrong with it? There's no swearing!"
I tried to explain how the violence on real people offended me, but it was difficult for him to comprehend. Maybe it was because he would giggle and laugh every time someone got hurt! wtf! He found that funny? Am I raising a serial killer?
Today when I googled it (yes the show bothered me that much) I found out that it's all FAKE. Based on stories that are real, but they are all reinactments based on the repo men's memory. Ugh.
We switched to Pawn Stars - one of the few shows we both like to watch.
OMG I still have most of my yummy lunch to eat....which I will do while reading Check Raising The Devil. I'm about 30 pages in and it's soooooooooo good. I may actually like Mike Matusow, poor guy.
PS - Speaking of playing smart, I am still steaming from my worst loss ever at Seabrook. Grrrrr
