Welcome to Friday Fragments, where we gather to purge our minds of the miscellany!
Warning: For some reason, all of my fragments this week are related to food!
[veggie pic courtesy of clker]Ten days ago, I decided I needed to lose some weight. Why? Because while I did buy one bra in "that" size, I refuse to buy another! (Yes, that's my barometer; when I look at myself in a photo and see nothing but BOOBS, it's time to hit the gym.) So, I joined SparkPeople (thanks, Michelle, for the encouragement) and have been very successful! It's kind of like Weight Watchers and Facebook combined (but you don't have to use the social part), and it's free. I highly recommend it if you need structure, goal-setting, and like to be able to have tons of free video workouts at your disposal. So far, I've lost 6 pounds and feel terrific! (No, SparkPeople and I do not have a business relationship; this is strictly my sincere personal recommendation.)
BTW, if you happen to see a bag of Cheetos Cruncy Cheddar Jalapeno in the store, BUY SOME! They are DELICIOUS. Sad to say I cannot partake until I reach my goal weight (at which point, I may inhale an entire bag), but I wanted to let you know.
HEY, CHEETO PEOPLE--Please make some baked Cheddar Jalapeno!! Thank you.
If you missed my video of Mom earlier this week (telling a cute story), visit Sometimes, You'd Just Rather Starve.
Recently, when an old friend called me and said, "It's been so long! Let's have lunch!" I replied, "How about a nice, long walk, instead?" She took me up on it, so we're going to go for a walk on a local trail (just as soon as the temps drop below melting point!)
I found Carol's Slow Cooker BBQ'd Beef recipe at SparkPeople. It's delicious!
[UPDATE! OMGOSH! The Extreme Makeover Home Edition people contacted me to volunteer on Monday night (from 10pm to 6am)! I'm SO excited!!! Stay tuned for more excitement!]
I've caught up on all of my emails and enjoyed Saturday Samplings from last week. Friday Fragments is next! Add your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS to the linky below and expect to see me (and hopefully others! :) soon! [Non-Friday Fragment posts will be deleted-Sorry. Click here for FF rules.]
