Weigh in day. I hit 214 this week. I finally broke my "realistic" weight loss goal. Anything below 215 is cause to celebrate. So I did. I originally decided that the first Sunday I saw 215 (or below) I was going out to buy a box of Drumsticks and I was going to feast. Well, I changed my mind and went out to lunch instead. I had a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a brownie sundae. And the brownie in said sundae was the Barefoot Contessa's recipe. She makes my absolute favorite chocolate treat ever. It's 6:30 and I'm still not hungry from lunch. I'm sure I did a little bit of damage, but fuck it. I hit a goal, dammit. There's plenty of time to feel like shit for mis-eating later, but not today.
One of the reasons we went out today is because Ken talked Mary Jo, the owner of our favorite restaurant, into letting him build the website for the restaurant. She's been open 11 months and doesn't have a website yet. People keep asking her about it but she hasn't had a chance to get around to it. So Ken, being Ken, got sick of it and told her he's building a site. He started yesterday morning and this morning we headed over there to show it to her. He was like this with her menus, too. The company that was supposed to do them for her put her on the back burner for a while and Ken took it upon himself to design and print the menus. Anyway, if you want, you can check out his handy work at MJ's On The Avenue.
There's been a lot of good music out there lately to listen to. A band I just discovered is called Scouting For Girls and I love 'em. A lot of energy, a lot of fun. I want to compare them to Barenaked Ladies (new live record coming!!!!!!!), even though they don't sound anything like them. They both have that kind of fun energy about them that makes them really enjoyable. Here's their new video. Yeah, they repeat a lot of lyrics, but who cares. I like them and that's what counts. I hope you do, too.
