Thursday Thoughts

1.) Somehow, the Beth’s Journey Dietbet pot is now over $10,000!!! That means over 400 people have signed up for the challenge – holy crap.

2.) Last night I made a composed dinner for the first time in a while that turned out awesome and still took only 15 minutes!

Simple grilled chicken on the foreman with a dollop of salsa, cilantro lime brown rice, and some sliced avocado. I made the rice while the chicken was grilling (instant brown rice + sautéed onion + lime juice + cilantro + salt) and then sliced a little avocado on the side to finish it off. The whole plate was only 7 PPs AND I have leftovers!

3.) This week I led an extra Weight Watchers meeting on top of my regular Tuesday morning one because I subbed for another leader for last night’s meeting. I am doing the same thing next week, and I have to say, I just love it. I was a little bit nervous going into last night’s meeting since the group was new to me, but once I got going it went great and the nervousness melted away almost immediately. It made me realize that I’ve really developed my speaking and facilitation skills over the last almost year and a half that I’ve been leading meetings, and I’m proud of how far I’ve come with it.

4.) Something I am not proud of is my dedication to training for Saturday’s half marathon, which would be my 6th. I feel undertrained and underprepared and have been going back and forth about whether I even want to run it. There have been a few things (one in particular) that really got in the way of training, but there’s also been a lot of times I could have run more and didn’t, with no excuse except lack of motivation or dedication. I’ve had a lot of people tell me just to run it and not care about how fast I go or how I do, but I would have a really hard time running 13.1 miles “just for fun”. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do, but will definitely keep you posted.

5.) To end on a light note, I absolutely LOVE puns and this has been making me laugh all week.


Not sure that will ever get old.

    If you do wind up running this weekend, I’ll be at the Calvert St. Hill with some kind of sign. I’ll look for you!

    So glad you enjoyed leading the second meeting Beth! I’m a big pun fan… someone said to me the other day “if you drink when you work out, you’re doing BACARDIO”. GROAN…but I’m still snickering! Have a great day!!

    I haven’t been able to make anything with rice yet while being on WW. I’m afraid of it (of eating too much). But that looks yummy. Maybe I’ll have to find some kind of individual serving package of it.

      Hi Kim! A few people have been asking me about that recently, so I think I will start another one for April if people are interested! This one ends March 31, so April 1 would be a great day to start it!
