DAY FOUR: January 21, 2011
Interview and Bill Maher went amazingly!! It was so great. The day in general was wonderful. I can’t even begin to explain how funny Bill Maher’s show was. Rachel Maddow is so smart and seeing her live and in person made my life complete! To top off my wonderful night, I had a french dip sandwich with gruyere cheese (my new fave) and caramelized onions for dinner and a really yummy salad! The whole thing tasted so good! I’ve pretty much decided that I could eat caramelized onions by themselves. The only downside about that meal… It was about 25 points… Which wasn’t too big of an issue seeing that I had a piece of turkey wrapped in a lettuce leaf for lunch. Yeah, I’m pretty hardcore. I had a total of 2 points for lunch…. and then that huge dinner. But overall, great day!
DAY FIVE: January 22, 2011
Today was a really interesting day. Brentano and I got up kind of early and went and had BallPark for an early lunch. As soon as we walked in the door, I was already nervous about the points I was about to consume. Brentano ended up ordering a small pepperoni and salami pizza with light sauce and extra cuts. I was thrilled! I knew I could have two mini slices of pizza and it still wouldn’t be the size of a normal slice! We both had water, despite my craving sierra mist. After that, I took him home and then met up with Ashlee, which was pleasant despite our lack of contact for the past few months. We were able to work out our differences and air our grievances and I think our friendship is salvaged. There’s still a lot that has to be done but I have a good feeling about it. Also, we walked up to the lake and split a Baluka Juice smoothie which is only about 4 points! I felt good after I left.
My dad announced he was going to the store to get stuff for dinner so I thought I’d tag along just so I could have some say in how many points I was allowed for dinner and what I could or couldn’t eat. We ended up having steaks for dinner. My portion was slightly smaller than everyone else’s but I made up for my lack of protein with an overdose of green vegetables! Which is code for: I ate the entire salad and almost all the broccoli. What can I say? I was kinda hungry. Choosing what to eat for dessert has become the worst part of my day. I’m always wanting it but it doesn’t always want me back… I finally decided on a tiny handful of peanuts mixed with a few (times 3) chocolate chips. It was a good little sweet and salty way to end the day.
My whole family watched Despicable Me after dinner. Well, my dad, my brother, and I watched it. My mom fell asleep within the first 10 minutes apparently because when it was over, she woke up and asked how Gru ended up with those three kids… I have high hopes for tomorrow. Hopefully seeing True Grit with Daddy and Brentano and then *fingers crossed* getting my computer battery looked at. It keeps yelling at me to “Service Battery” but I keep putting it off… Then driving back up to school to go work on a project! I hope everything goes according to plan! Good Night :)
