Hooray for Tuesday, mostly because it’s not Monday 😛  I took today as a rest day aside from walking the dogs and an hour on the treadmill at 1 mile per hour while I was on the computer, it wasn’t bad, hardly noticed I was moving but I burned some calories. I figure if I can do something mid afternoon, that would be good to just keep the calorie burn going for the day.  Tomorrow is a 50 minute run, which I’m looking forward to.  My knee is scraped up but at least now it’s scabbed so it shouldn’t bother me when I run tomorrow.

For breakfast I had a blueberry smoothie, made with blueberries, Greek Yogurt, milk and a teaspoon of honey, it was yummy and pretty filling, which is good because I had to take the dogs to the vet today right before lunch and the vet is 25 miles away, yes I know a long way to go but I LOVE my vet and so does my neurotic previously abused dog and that’s super important.  I was going to take them for a walk afterward but I was too hungry so we headed home since the plan was to walk with Ben when he got home anyways.  For lunch I had leftover Chicken Marsala with a salad then did my hour on the treadmill since I was only at 1800 steps for the day.  We picked Ben up from work and walked before having a WeightWatchers recipe, Picadillo Pork Burritos.  Basically onions, garlic and pork (tossed in cumin and cinnamon)cooked with salsa, raisins and almonds it was really tasty and easy. (oh and of course I used really hot salsa and added a jalapeño).

With 4 points left for the day I enjoyed a vitamuffin with a 1/2 Tbsp of peanut butter.  I enjoyed this while watching The Biggest Loser and I have to say I was super happy with the red line, goodbye whiny crybaby, spoiled brat, Sunshine.  HAHA good riddance.  I really didn’t like her, her mopey crybaby face anytime her name would get pushed down the list.  Now I think I want Daris to win, or Ashley.  I still haven’t forgiven Michael for the pancake teams (ie he stacked his) sure it’s a game but to create such a gross advantage is disgusting.  And although I liked Koli early on, I found him very disingenuous.  He poisoned Stephanie’s friends against her, decided Victoria hadn’t worked hard enough, said people shouldn’t game play, but keeping Sam at the end was game play pure and simple.  So he just sort of left a bad taste in my mouth.  I lean a bit more to Daris but I’d be happy with him or Ashley.  Yes, I know everyone likes Sunshine but I just don’t.

Okay – love that you added jalapeno to your dish, but had to rush to the end – I haven’t seen BL yet – I plan on watching it tonight – thanks for the alert! 😀

No problem I know lots of people save it so I didn’t want to ruin it.

I’ve heard of people having “treadmill offices” but you’re the first person I know of who’s actually doing it in real life. Fascinating! As are the almonds and raisins in a burrito. Will have to try this.

Everything always looks soooo good!!! Treadmilling while computering?! I want to do that! Brilliant! I wouldn’t burn that many calories, though…I’m never on my computer at home, sadly. 🙁

I agree with your BL take. Koli left a bad taste in my mouth, too. I mean WHAT SENSE did it make to have Sam there? And then this week he was like “Whatever, about Sam…I’m in this for me!” I like sunshine, but I’m on Team Daris!!! I like Ashley, but with her party lifestyle, I think she’s prone to regaining her weight. 🙁
