How Wheat Works and How Wheat Works Against Me

Aloha Friday

Kailani at An Island Life does Aloha Friday and here is what she has to say:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My question to you is:

Does your TP roll over or under? And have you voted?

Even though I have to admit rolling under would solve some of the issues with my kids un-rolling the TP everywhere, I still can’t stand it. OVER ALL THE WAY!  And no, I haven’t voted. But I did think the commercial with the guy and his swiveling tp holder was pretty funny.

The Diet – Post 2, Day 8

We had our second weigh-in yesterday…and I only lost 2 pounds. I guess I need to start somewhere right? So a few things I’m going to do to turn it up a notch:

#1: Cut out the carbs on my cardio days. No breads, tortillas, potatoes etc. I can have a serving of fruit, but only if I have it with my protein shake.

#2: On the days I do eat carbs, I’m going to keep it to a minimum and only whole grains.

#3: I’m going to step it up (2 tha streets) with my cardio. No slacking! And I’ve found that 5:30 is an excellent time to go to the gym. No one tried to push me off the treadmill and take it. That’s a plus.
