Ten Things Thursday

YAY!!!!!! It's Thursday :o) Y'all know how I love me some 10 things Thursday. Thank you Laura Belle.

1. Have you seen that Betty White show, 0ff Their R0ckers? It is absolutely hilarious. I watched it for the first time last night and couldn't believe that I have been missing this televised slice of happiness. It is a prank show where all the pranks are performed by senior citizens. Please people, if you need a laugh, tune in!

2. I am still on liquids and still working on getting in all of my protien. I had my surgery last Monday and yesterday I finally had a BM. I know it is gross, but let me tell you, it was EPIC. Talk about relief :o)

3. Speaking of TMI, I was doing one of my wifely duties *wink*wink* and got to wondering if hairs could cause a PB. I know that this is a sensitive subject, but it was hard to concentrate on business when all I was thinking about  was whether or not it would scar my husband if I PBd at a moment such as this. I think I will ask him to trim.

4. Now back to some family friendly topics :o) I have missed cooking. My husband (who never ever cooks) has been preparing the meals for himself and Charli since my surgery. It has me feeling almost useless. Yesterday I told him that I wanted to cook dinner and I made a tasty looking dish of Pan-Seared Tilapia with Chili Lime Butter, Bacon Wrapped Asparagus (used 2 slices of bacon cut in thirds and wrapped every third spear) and rice. My how I have missed it. As good as it looked, I was not tempted to cheat on my liquids only phase. I was satisfied with my butternut squash soup.

When I shared this with a friend of mine, she acted like I was going down a slippery slope of band failure. I was very offended. I just missed cooking for my family, geez! Can you guys understand where I am coming from, or am I truly setting myself up?

5. I am noticing that things are starting to fit better. Not enough to say I am in a smaller size or anything, but enough not to have to discreetly unbutton my pants to make it through the day :o)

6. I am anxious to be cleared for some exercise. I like walking, but I want to get my sweat on.

7. I am afraid of Bandster Hell. I am hoping I don't have it. I have been feeling satisfied and I never feel hungry. If anything I get thirsty so I have been working on getting in water so I dont shrivel up like a raisin.

8. My sister told me she had a family of possums living under her sink. What the Hell!?!?!? I don't know long they have been there or if they are paying rent, but I won't be visiting anytime soon. What is the difference between a possum and an opossum?

9. That picture scares me

10. TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. That picture scares me too! YIKES!

  2. SO sorry I missed you at group AGAIN!! My mother was in town and I completely forgot on Monday.
    I think you should ask him to trim anyway! Haha, I don't think hair causes a pb though, just a severe gag reflex! LOL.

  3. Um, I HATE POSSUMS. The only good one is a dead one.

    I don't think the cooking is a slippery slope at all. I would be more concerned if you couldn't/didn't cook and relied on dining out for all your meals since it is harder to control the calories that way.

    I don't think that hair can cause a PB but "wifely duties" may be a good way to get your extra protein!! :O *snicker*

  4. Oh no. 3. ... I'm in stitches. You were complaining about protein. Just saying...

    1. HAAAAA!! He's cooking AND making you some protein shakes!

  5. Tell your husband that "manscaping" is definitely the in thing to do. I won't go near un-manscaped areas :)

  6. I continued cooking for my're a mom and wife. So you can't be around food? I applaud the willpower as it sounds delish but lots of us cooked while on liquids.

  7. PB on a hair!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!! That is funny! I don't think wanting to cook for your fam is a problem at all. After all, no one said you couldn't touch food. Besides, what you prepared sounds relatively healthy and absolutely YUM. You sound like you are doing SO well!

  8. I think what the chick said was bs. don't even it let you bother you. We have to lose weight, but we don't have to ban food entirely from our lives.

  9. #2 - No, we ALL can understand the epicocity (new word?!) of that!!

    #3 - OMFG!! bwahahahahah!!!! SMDH LOL

    #8 - UMM, that pic scared the living SHIT out of me!!! grunts are the devil!!!

  10. Congrats on getting the surgery!! I can't believe she had possums living under her sink!! AAH!

  11. You are a riot!! You were killing me over here!! I sorta used the excuse of I was naseauted a lot in the beginning so I could get out of "duties". LMAO. I milked it until I couldn't anymore hahahaha.

    Tell your friend she has no clue. I cooked while I was in all phases because I love it :)

    Bandster hell is inevitable and will come with a bitchy vengeance. But - we all had it and DO NOT let it worry you or discourage you. You are doing wonderful!!!

  12. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Too funny, he totally needs to get his hedge under control.

    The cooking thing, I thought I would hate it but I loved to cook all the way through my restricted diet. I think that is ingrained in you and I say keep doing it and making good choices when you do.

  13. The cooking thing. I bake...a lot. I have not eaten any of my baking but I enjoy doing it. I've been following my healthy lifestyle for about 8 months now and have not been tempted once. It's all about what I want for myself, and gaining back the 82 pounds I lost is not an option. No baked goods taste better than my success. I hate Possums. Your sister should seriously evict him. Those things scare the bejeezus out of me! Congrats on your surgery:)
