The series finale of Lost was one beautiful episode. I absolutely loved the flash sideways and how everyone started to remember the island and the connections and relationships they made on it. I stayed up until 2A reading message boards and Lost blogs because I am a dork like that and for the most part it seems like everyone was happy with the ending however some feel like it didn’t finalize everything and saying that the creators lied when saying the island wasn’t purgatory (which it wasn’t, the flash sideways was). All in all, I am going to miss Lost. It was the only show I ever watched that delved deep into the characters, their development and both their past and futures. I can honestly say I will be shocked if another show comes along that has made the impact Lost has made on me.
I had a Supercharge Me cookie this morning since I caught the late bus into work. I also had a Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Bottle since I wasn’t lazy and didn’t feel like making coffee. This was way too sweet for me and I used to drink these a lot. Add another item to the list of things I am just not diggin anymore. Looks like Operation Watch My Sugar Intake is working because all these sweets are just now too sweet for me and I’m not enjoying it like I used to. I think I have been doing decent with watching my sugar intake (ok except for the occasional ice cream serving) but looking at my sugar this month, a majority of it seems to be from fruit which yeah, it’s a lot of sugar but in my mind, it could be worse by eating something processed with tons more sugar.
I had a bowl of oats around 10A with Trader Joe’s Very Cherry Blend and Trader Joe’s Blueberry Flax—fruity delicious warm goodness (also one of my ex boyfriends nicknames—JK!)
I was dragging this morning. I had two cups of Starbucks at work and pretty much a walking zombie going though the motions most of the day. Thank God for good eye makeup because I would have just looked horrid without it! I caught up with my co-workers with Lost and we just talked and talked about that so that made my day go a little better. I was busy but nothing out of control so I got to
A) Drink lots of water because I had time to go to the bathroom. Sad huh?
B) Take a 10 minute break in the morning
C) Take a lunch break and catch up on Lost Blogs
Life is good
I had a turkey and Pepperjack cheese sandwich with Dijon, tomato and lettuce on whole wheat with cucumbers and Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Hummus for lunch.
I finally tried Better Balance Lemon Herb Protein Chips, which have been sitting in my snack drawer at work. I wasn’t anxious to try these because some of these protein snacks can be quite tasteless and just blah.
Surprisingly enough, they were fabulous. I had half a bag and would love to try more. They have other fun flavors like Crispy Parmesan and Chili Nacho Cheese and will need to try those soon! Now to jump on the Vita Top bandwagon!
I tried something different for dinner: Pita Puff Coated Catfish Bites
I threw in Trader Joe’s Pita Puffs in the food processor
I cut up an 8 oz catfish fillet into bites, dipped in eggwash and tossed in ground up Pita Puffs with barbeque seasoning.
Then fried in 1/5 tbsp of vegetable oil
Drizzled with wing sauce and served with half a sweet potato
The verdict: I really liked the alternative of this as a coating for meat as opposed to bread crumbs, panko, etc. but I forgot that it was the Sea Salt Pita Puffs so it was a tad on the salty side (note to self, get the unsalted kind next time!)
I had a good Kettlebell/ Weight workout tonight including:
10 lb dumbbell
- Shoulder Press (2 sets, 13 reps)
- Lateral Raises (2 sets, 12 reps)
- Front Raises (2 sets, 13 reps)
- Curls (2 sets, 13 reps)
20 lb. Kettlebell
- Halos (4 sets, 12 reps)
- Upright Row (3 sets, 13 reps)
- Squats (4 sets, 12 reps)
- Swings (3 sets, 12 reps)
- Shrugs (2 sets, 13 reps)
Mixed with that, I did a lot of jumping, booty shaking and kicking.
Random workout but I felt amazing afterwards. I let Lincoln out of his holding cell (AKA my bedroom) and we went for a 15 minute walk then came back and had my post workout snack: Baked Apple with Cinnamon and Peanut Butter
And spent. I am exhausted and ready to catch up on blogs and crash!
