Bigger Loser Addict & NSVs
me: hi, my name is Chloe & I am a Biggest Loser addict
you: hello, Chloe. Welcome to the group.
I have never, ever watched this show - til now. And now, I can't stop. More than that, I get all blubbery watching it! This is sooo not me. I am definitely not a "crier" But on the show last night, Cara the trainer was doing this thing where she'd push people down, make them get up & scream "I'm a fighter." over & over again. As the people got more tired, the screams became more primal & for some it seemed to hit a core spot deep inside. Just watching it I was getting all weepy & teary-eyed. I wonder - am I a fighter, too?
A nice NSV to report.....I was at the mall last night with the hubs ('cause he needed new jeans - he's started going to the gym, too, & I want him to show off his new booty!). I stopped in "THAT" store. You know - THAT store....the one you always windowshop but never walk in because you know everything in there is too cute & too small to fit? For me, THAT store is Anthropologie. Great casual, fun, flirty & feminine clothes. Not boring like Eddie Bauer. I actually went in last night & tried on a couple things. Not really expecting anything to fit but rather to get a sense of how close I might be. Well, sisters, let me tell ya - I'm there! I walked out with a shirt - in MEDIUM!!!!! wowser for me. Can't wait to wear it - a lot - & wear a smile every time I put it on. NSV, ladies, NSV
One final story from a day in the life - my husband got stuck last night! No, he's not a bandster - he just ate too fast & it got stuck in his throat. He tried walking around, spitting it up, drinking fluids but nothing worked - it was just stuck. He even slimed! Eventually, he did get it down but I told him thats what a band feels like. hahahaha
Shame about him getting stuck, tho', since I made a great dinner last night. Steak au poivre from America's Test Kitchen. Steak is a pretty dense protein, so it was big deal for me to try it. I think the hubs ate too fast because he was so excited to have something other than chicken! I'm happy to report I did pretty well with it. I did buy really tender cut of meat & it was cut rather than thin. I had to eat really slowly (which has been a challenge for me), chew really well (again, challenging) and put down utensils between bites to keep a slow place. In the end, I did eat about 4oz plus about 1/3c roasted carrots. Feels like I'm learning this banded lifestyle....
