Giddy Girl

53

I’m in a weird (read: crazy) mood right meow.

Could it be the fact that it was still light enough to take pictures in the last rays of the sun when I got home from work that’s making me deliriously happy? Completing Day 2 Week 1 of BodyRock.tv’s 30 Day Fitness Challenge without coughing up a lung? Getting to pick up dinner instead of cooking it at home?

Oh wait, I know what it is…

I get to eat sugar in one day! WHEE!

Week 1 of Sugar Free Jebruary is coming to a close tomorrow, and the first thing I will be devouring when I wake up Saturday morning is THIS. A warm(ed up), Cinnamon Crunch Bagel with Reduced-Fat Hazelnut Cream Cheese from Panera.

MUWAHAHAHAHA!

Goll – seriously! I am giddy with anticipation. Look at that streusel pocket!

This week without sugar hasn’t been hard, per se, rather, it’s just been annoying. I never ever bake during the week, but all I can think about the past couple of days is the cakes, doughnuts and cookie recipes that are burning holes in my Evernote must try baking recipes list. I know I only want them cause I can’t have them though, which annoys me even more.

Oh well, I’ll survive. It’s good for me, and it makes weekends that much sweeter (pun intended.) ;) PS: last night’s peanut butter cookie dough dip experiment was a total bust. I tried to cut the recipe by 1/5 (why?) and totally screwed up the measurements. I’m trying again tomorrow, so I’ll let you know if I have better luck!

In other news, I picked up the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel when I was at Panera picking up dinner. A You-Pick-2 Combo of All Natural Steak Chili with Cornbread Crumbles, and an Asian Sesame Chicken Salad!

I had a fabu recipe all picked out to make tonight, but realized too little too late that it was a sweet, breakfasty-type dish that would violate my main goal for SF Jeb – no extra sugar during the week.

A quick spin to Panera solved my problem. This chili was spicy and tasted down right homemade. Reminded me of church soup supper chili. Good!

(I know, there’s sugar in the cornbread. I forgot, and it was only like, 2 Tablespoons worth!)

This Asian Sesame Chicken Salad was tossed with a far-east inspired, reduced-sugar Asian sesame vinaigrette that was just dynamite. I wish they sold it in bottles.

The chicken was great too – Panera always has the best chicken!

Done and done. :)

Well Thursday night = Ben and Kristin night. Both of our favorites are on tv, which means neither one is left to space off and/or dink around on the interwebs while the other is reveling in Teen Mom and/or (another) NBA game.

30 Rock, Parks & Rec, The Office and Up All Night – here we come!  :)

Toodles!

What’s your favorite TV show?

If I had to pick one I’d say…30 Rock. Tina Fey’s type of humor is my kind of humor. ;)
