Friend Remix: Week 26

I got up well before Matt this morning and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast while watching Its Always Sunny. (English Muffin with Laughing Cow Cheese 2pts)

After breakfast, Matt and I did some more laundry, and then I went to the gym. I did NOT want to be there! I thought I would do 2 minute sprints trying to speed my time...that didn't go well AT ALL. After the 1st two minutes at an 7.5 mph run, I thought I was going to vomit a lung. I was dying!!!! I switched to the cross ramp after only 5 minutes. 

I got in 30 minutes on it- hating every second....until....I Friend Remixed it up! I started listening only to songs that made me think of people. Each song helped me pick up my pace despite the devilish resistance I had set myself on. Here are just a few of the tunes (and the people) that kept me going:

Eye of The Tiger- Mary, Dee, and Cait (I pretended I was singing rock band with ya'll)
Slinky Girl- Matt
Rain is a Good Thing- Brad and Allison
Hey Soul Sister- Jamie
Toxic- Ryan Dalton
I've got a Theory (Buffy Musical)- Sammy
Here in this Diary- Shelby

After that playlist, I made it through my 30 minutes plus a little and was able to get out of the gym. I got +3 activity pts- lame.

Matt and I spent some time at the pool after that and left in time to watch the World Cup. Spain won- of course- they are incredible to watch. I had the leftover fiesta chicken bake 6pts for lunch with some broccli 0pts.

I spent most of the rest of the day planning for Shelby's lingerie shower that Jamie and I are throwing her. My fingers are covered in glue!! 
Here's a peak at the envelopes!

I did take a break to interview Matt for a LearningRx position and to eat dinner. I had a fat free hot dog on a potato bun for 3pts and some baked french fries I made for Matt and I 6pts. I had about 1pt worth of condiments with the dinner too.
Matt and I split this much fries

Now I am sipping on a beer 2pts and listening to Matt read me Harry Potter while Little Bear is growling at invisible intruders. Good night!!
