WW: Bette Davis Eyes

This past week I chose to eat more vegetarian dishes. Instead of making chicken fajitas which are for the most part rather light already, I chose to slice up onions, jalapenos and bell pepper and mixed them up with a little bit of my favorite Claude's Fajita Sauce. I cooked it with a tiny bit of oil which came out perfectly! In your face, chicken!

I didn't exercise as much as I could have this week as I was in a rather pissy mood all week (PMS will do that to you!) but I wasn't too worried as I ate really light all week.

So how did I do? 1.8 lbs down this week! Man, the year of the dog is starting off really great! Weight Watchers gave me the same typical message when I logged in my weight:

WAY TO GO! Congratulations for losing weight this week. We hope you're thrilled with the result. Here's a quote by Aristotle that we thought might strike a chord with you: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." Keep practicing your excellence and have a great week.

The same message over and over, how the hell is that supposed to motivate you?!?!

Know what still isn't setting in, the fact that I'm turning 30 this year. A few weeks ago I was complaining to my sister about how disappointed I was with how slow my weight loss progress was going (this was pre-year of the dog when all the sudden I got into turbo speed) and she has the gall to say "Well, you are getting older and your metabolism is slowing down. What the hell kind of shit is that? That's a bit like saying to me "Oh honey I'm so sorry you're feeling down but while since you're already feeling shitty let me slap you a bit!" Okay, okay it's not that extreme and she wasn't trying to be mean but you get my point.

Anyhow, later in the week I went out to dinner with my parents and we were listening to the "oldies" station where they play music of my parent's generation(50's, 60's and 70's you know). And all the sudden I start to hear Kim Carnes' Bette Davis Eyes and I say "What the hell, they're playing Bette Davis Eyes on the oldies station???" To which my Mom said 'Why, you got a problem with that?" So I respond with "Yeah as they're playing songs from my childhood on the oldies station!" Seriously, are the going to play NKOTB next?

That wasn't even the worst revelation of the week, I also found out that my Mom bought Michael Bublé's album from Hallmark!

Check this out: Put this CD in your loved one's car player and cue it to your favorite song. With the turn of the key, your Valentine will be serenaded into feeling starry-eyed all day.

Starry-eyed my ass! If someone put that in my car I'd have to take the keys and jam them in my ears to drown out the sound!

I bet this album is the real reason that all these celebrity couples are breaking up! How Bublérrible! When will this madness end?!?!

Probably once he covers Bette Davis Eyes!

I loved Bette Davis Eyes. Loved it. Oldies, schmoldies.

As you know, I have recently passed into the Land of Over 30, and for the most part, I feel the same. Which has really helped, even though it doesn't matter, you know?

Congrats on the weight loss, babe. And now I am off to order some of that fajita sauce. Mmmm.
YAY! You'll have to buy smaller underwear again before you know it!!
I am turning 30 this year too. Remeber that episode of Friends where Rachel is turning 30 and everyone remembers how it was when they turned 30? Well, Joey looks upwards to heaven and says, why, God, why, we had a deal! That's how I feel, that we have a deal and 30 will never come *sigh* Yeah right!
Yay for the weight loss! It's starting to get really exciting!

I love that episode of Friends, one of my favorites! I think if I silently refuse to turn 30, it won't really happen but then getting rid of the bad decade of my 20's will be kind of nice.
The day I hear "Hangin' Tough" on Oldies 98 will be a sad one indeed...
