too busy

More driving, working, busy all day

Just another Pirate Ship stuck in traffic

Huge Wolf Spiders lurking in the 
Doctor's Office Bathroom of Death.
I am telling you something is not right!
(link) omg.  As in P.U!

Crawling through traffic and such

Begging for Latte

I'll take that instead

Christmas in July already!

More summer days ahead!

 Hope your day is awesome!

cross fit days

The essence of CrossFit

Warm up when it's too hot to run outside -
backwards - whilst carrying 1,000 pound anvils

Little kids always want in to CrossFit - 
One snuck in and was jumping rope...
She looked me square in the eye -
as if I didn't know how to jump rope,
and she was showing me!

Oops - can you spot my Fox Pass?

Just another day in the box -
I crossed the threshold of the door...
(my only goal - on days like this)
I got in - and I didn't walk out.
So that counts! Yay!

Hope your day is wonderful!

a day for eating

Olive Garden Salad
Didn't eat the croutons.... DID have a
part of a bread stick.... the top part!
The garlic-butter part... needed more butter, tho!

So much for protein shakes.... nom nom nom


Chicken salad
Had some little bits of apple in it!

Sugar Free Fro Yo still has
30 grams of carbs!

4 g of sugar alcohols 

Cooling off in a hydrant - NYC style

Construction is everywhere

Kinda a before and after...

Hope your day is wonderful

farmer's market

Just a feast for they eyes!
And the I's - the "Aye's" have it!

Stay cool - having an awesome day?

26 July 2011

cookbook day

Got a chance to do some intellectual type reading

I thought this would be all propaganda -
Turns out, it was pretty good.
Hidden in between the lines is a message:
Eat less junk. Eat less sugar.

Sweet Potato Fries. 
Hopefully in lard.

Throw off the bun - to throw off more buns!

Yep. There ya go, then.

Mean while, back at the Ranch Dressing....
I had a little tuna with a little mayo and
a little sour cream! Oh, and green beans!
Probably against the law.
But it was good!
LC pickles - 1 gram per pickle- onions, peeled celery,
all the usual accouterments.

And now - off to CrossFit -
to get rid of my "But's"
And my "Butt"

Hope your day is going joyfully!

in and out

Rock Paper Scissors with myself...
One one hand, I always win!

How my patients must see me!

Cooper Clinic's Lifestyle Weight-loss plan....

Says in the book that Fruit is a complex carb!
I did not know that.
Silly me - I always think "starches"
when I think about true complex carbs.

I guess since fruit has different kinds of sugars,
they can call it "complex!"

Also says to eat less sugar. hmmm.... good idea!
And more fat - keeps you from being so hungry.

I drive past The Cooper Clinic
All The Time.

The sign says "Stop For Joggers"
And they have cool statures of joggers all around.

I worked there once - years ago - when I was heavier.
Had a post-op case. Brought my typical McD for dinner.
Went to heat it up... No microwaves in the rooms!

Took my dinner down stairs...The concierge actually scolded me - 
"You know better than that!" Tsk tsk!
I guess he thought I was part of the Phatty Pharm!
Alrighty then!

In -n- Out Burgers are the new thing in DFW.
Now I never have to go to LA again!
Except to see my blogging buddies.
And the ocean, of course!

Very hot here.... still! It's like getting a free sauna!
Oh, and the Multi-shakes are going great!
Lots of energy - I can barely sit still - at times!

Hope your day is wonderful!
Think: cool!

23 July 2011

got coconut milk?

Well, do ya?

The dog and shake days of summer continue!
3 shakes today and some chicken -
All I could endure.

All kinds of flavors - all kinds of milk bases!
I haven't bought any Heavy Whipping Cream 
for a few weeks now!

Coconut milk from the can is more like cream!
It is like coconut oil - turns solid in the fridge!

I get this water from a local vendor....  7 gals at a time.
It has like 1 ppm of solutes... virtually distilled!

So I add a pinch or so of Sea Salt to the mix...
Better for electrolytes and mythology -
They say it's hemolytic.... but not anymore!

Stay cool and have a great day!
Any plans for the weekend?
Do tell!
