Do you know what you're eating??!!

So, I finally gave in and signed up for Weight Watchers online. I don't need want have time to attend the meetings, so the online version is perfect for me.

Ok, let me be honest on why I love the online version so much. The computer does all the math for me. I hate math. I tell Mr. Awesome almost on a daily basis that, "I'm too pretty to do math." It calculates your points for you, and lets you know exactly where you're at.

The point of this post was to share the most wonderful link with all of you (a.k.a. the 4 people who read this) and enlighten you with what is in the food we eat. Knowledge is power. My friend once told me that looking at the scale is like looking at your credit card statement; once you know you can make the changes to correct it. I look at food the same way. Knowing what I am eating is really helping me make changes in my life. Read: My pants are going to fit.

Anyway, here is the link. Go to restaurants and you can see all of the nutrition facts for your favorite foods at your favorite places. You can also download the spreadsheets onto your phone for easy access. I hope you all enjoy and find the site as useful as I do. :)

p.s. I'm down 4.4 lbs!

Really, Really Ridiculously Good News

Can it be? Is it true? Ben Stiller is in talks of doing a Zoolander 2 movie. Pretty sure nothing can beat the original movie, but bringing back the Zoolander character is amazing.

For those of you who don't really know the basis of the movie, Derek Zoolander is a model, who also has an IQ of about 2. All of his "looks" are exactly the same, but he thinks they are different. "I like the calendar because it shows my versatility." The first time I saw the movie, I thought it was so stupid. The more I watched it, the more I realized how awesome it is. Ben Stiller definitely makes the movie with his funny and ditzy comments. Yes, this man is ditzy, if that's even possible. "The files are IN the computer?!"

Can't wait. Don't judge me.

30 Day Shred!

So now that I have my eating under control, I'm adding workouts in. I dusted off my Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred DVD and popped it in for a workout before watching AI. It was tough, but totally do-able. Excited to get toned up!

On a side note...if I had her body, this is the only outfit I would wear. Just sayin'.

WTF Pinkberry?!

As much as I love supporting local businesses, can someone PUH-LEASE open a Pinkberry in Northern California?! Just because we live in the Northern part of the state, it doesn't mean we don't deserve yummy, delicious Original Tart. You hear that owners?! We like frozen yogurt too! In fact, there are a TON of Pinkberry wannabe's but there is just something about the original. Waiting...patiently.

Is this Chicken or Tuna?

Say what you want about my girl Jessica, she knows exactly what she is doing. Her "dumb blonde" antics helped her become a household name and has a very successful shoe and handbag line. I'd say stupid things in front of the camera to have her income. AmiRight??

Also, John Mayer is retarded. Here is the definition of Napalm (accodring to Wikipedia), in case you didn't know. And I'm not going to lie, I didn't know what it was either.

Napalm (naphthenic and palmitic acids) is a thickening/gelling agent generally mixed with gasoline or a similar fuel for use in military operations. The term napalm is a combination of the names of its derivatives (coprecipitated aluminium salts of naphthenic and palmitic acids).[1] Colloquially, napalm is used as a generic reference to several flammable liquids used in warfare, often jellied gasoline.[2] "Napalm B" is the modern variant of napalm and, although chemically different, is often referred to simply as napalm.[2]

Awesome Tweeting

Well, I'm not gonna lie, this is pretty awesome. I changed my Twitter name to @TheMrsAwesome to match my whole theme I have going on.


I think I'm getting the black lung, Pop

If you see a horse faced makeup guru angrily dragging a man that has the most regular bowels on the planet by his feet, you're witnessing the result of a "Dr." making crazy claims against Bare Escentuals, one of the most popular makeup brands. Not to mention it's my favorite!!!

According to Dr. Oz, he's saying the minerals in the makeup could actually damage and scar lungs. Whaaaat? Now, note the part that says there are NO ACTUAL STUDIES to prove this, it's just a potential risk. 

Mineral makeup is a big trend. Made from minerals such as mica, which are used for industrial purposes as well, these tiny particles are a thousand times smaller than predecessors from even 10 years ago. Their small size makes for a smoother, more flawless look, but it has one serious unintended consequence. The particles are so tiny they fall quickly through the air and can be inhaled easily into your lungs. When construction workers use mica in products such as spackle, they wear masks to protect their lungs from scarring over time. Though there are no studies showing damage from makeup use to date, experts say the long-term use and inhalation of minerals in makeup can lead to inflammation, irritation, and lung disease in women and girls.
So here's to not inhaling. I'm Team BE.


...and here's Zoolander, just for fun.

[after being in a coal mine for a dayDerek Zoolander: [high-pitched cough] ... I think I'm getting the Black Lung, Pop. It's not very well ventilated down there. 
Larry Zoolander: For Christ's sake, Derek, you've been down there one day. Talk to me in thirty years

Emailing in the SHOWER?

Mr. Awesome is pretty awesome...but I don't know about this one. I kind of like having a few minutes to use my pink loofah, exfoliate and use the 15 shower gels I just had to have. But you heard it here first folks...

Blackberries in the shower

I'm Now a Brunette!

Not sure how I am feeling about this. I haven't been this color since I was in 7th grade. No really. I went to Trader Joe's and just felt like I blended in. Being blonde makes you feel so pretty and awesome. Ok, that could be just my own thoughts haunting me from Junior High.  I learned what highlights, makeup and a hair dryer can really do. And voila!, here I am today. Now since I have all these beauty tools in my arsenal, I'm definitely working it. I've recieved many compliments on my skin and my eyes, which I never really had before. Hmmmm, maybe I'll stick this out for awhile. You know, like 4-6 weeks until I go back for another appointment.
