Lately I’ve had an obsession with beans…chili, baked beans…you name it. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m too tight and beans are easier eat since they are “mushier”..but where you find beans, you’ll find me. My typical day has consisted of the following:

  • Breakfast: tall non-fat mocha from Starbucks
  • Lunch: about 2-3 oz of baked beans
  • Dinner: 1/4 of a chicken breast with barbecue sauce
  • Desert: 1/2 of a slimfast shake (frappucino style, of course)

And there you have it. Nothing fancy…nothing exciting. But it works.

Just finished dinner. Steak, corn…that’s it. Had about 4 oz of steak and 2 oz of corn. But I’m STILL HUNGRY. Wahhhhhh. I want to be full. I am getting so ornery. I know I’m not supposed to drink liquid calories, but I’m going to have a Slim-Fast-accino because I am so not full or even close.

Tomorrow night I’m going to dinner with my husband, my fantastic boss Matt and his girlfriend Erica at How To Cook A Wolf. Pretty saucy name for a restaurant. The main meals are pasta which will force me to order an appetizer as my main course (good)!

I’m glad tomorrow is Monday. This weekend has been good – but long. Betcha don’t hear that too often!

Today I found I could eat a bit more than the past few days. For lunch I could have about 3/4 of a can of tuna and for dinner about 5 oz of steak (cut up into eraser size pieces and chewed to mush). I think I will go in for my 2nd fill on Monday morning at 8am but only have about 0.5cc’s put in.

Today at the office we had the folks from Google come in and they brought us these huge chocolate chip cookies and beer to snack on during the meeting (gotta love those google folks)! And – I had NOTHING! Not even a bite. Not that the cookies didn’t smell soooo good. And yes, I was tempted. But nope. Didn’t even try a lick. I was not even tempted to have the beer…for some reason I have this odd image of my stomach exploding if I drink anything with carbonation. Anyone actually drink carbonated beverages with the band…and if so, what happened?

And it’s crazy how this fill has impacted my eating. For lunch today I had a tuna salad. And all I could eat was about 4 bites of the tuna and a couple bites of the lettuce. For dinner I had tilapia and ate about 1/4 of a fillet and a couple of mushrooms. And the crazy thing is that I’m full! And I’m staying full. And that’s all I’ve had all day except for a few cups of coffee and a couple glasses of crystal light.

I’m not sure if this is real or if I’m dreaming but all I can tell you is that this is unbelievable. I don’t crave food. I mean…a bite of ice cream wouldn’t be bad…but I don’t crave a pint – I crave a bite. However, I will not have one. I’ll have half of a slimfast-a-ccino in a couple hours.

Ahhh – I should have done this years ago.

Peeps: the results

I dreaded writing this post…because I knew how disappointed you would all be with me. I didn’t create a Peeps creation. I know – I am so bad….so lazy…so lacking Peeps spirit. I just didn’t have time, was too tired from the OC trip and decided to sleep instead. Thank you all for your wonderful ideas. I did take pictures from the folks at the office who did create Peeps works of art and have them displayed below. The winner was the Peeps Fiction. See them all by clicking to my flickr page here. 🙂

Every year, about this time, my company has their annual Peeps Creation Contest (yes, I swear, we do actually get work done sometimes and if anyone is looking for an absolutely amazing integrated marketing, design, advertising agency…you know who to call!) If you don’t know what a Peeps creation contest is, I’ll tell you. It’s where you take several Peeps and create “something” … whether it’s a sculpture, a “scene”, a model…well, just about anything out of Peeps. Then, the creations are judged and the most creative wins. Not sure what the prize is but I’m sure it’s fabulous (as long as it’s not more Peeps I’ll be happy). So I need ideas as to what to create with my supply of Peeps – and I need ideas NOW as the project is due tomorrow! Come on – help me out. Please…please…pretty peep?
