Giveaway reminder, making a 'Bucks run, and is it too good to be true?

Good morning bloggie buddies! Just wanted to remind you all that the giveaway ends tomorrow at midnight! If you don't mind, please post about it on your blog, I'd appreciate it and it gets you an additional entry for the book. This giveaway idea is fun. I'm trying to come up with more fun ideas for giveaways, any suggestions?

Also, I have to report a minor victory. This morning I woke up completely famished. It being the end of the week, our grocery stock pile is low. We literally had no bread or english muffins, I was out of clif bars, and I had no time to scramble an egg (not to mention the fact that I hate eggs). So, I decided I'd stop for breakfast on my way to work, I needed coffee anyway. Remembering that I had a Starbuck's giftcard, I decided to make a run for the 'Bucks. In the olden days (ha!) I'd have ordered a latte and a scone, which would have totalled in over 600 cals, if the latte was skinny. That's what I REALLY wanted this morning. Instead, I ordered oatmeal and a skinny iced coffee, which totalled at 329. Still much more than I budget for breakfast, usually, but not bad! Yay!!!

Finally, does anyone else ever eat at Genghis Grill? Here in the armpit of Florida, we just got a Genghis. I LOVE it. Keeping in mind that it's fast stir-fry food, it's a great option. You control what and exactly how much of everything goes in your stir fry. Plus, their website has a "build your bowl" option where you can total up the number of calories in your dish. When I build my bowl, I end up getting a meal with relatively low calories for the amount you get. Which leads me to question if it's too good to be true? Does anyone else eat there? Any thoughts?

Hope all is well in bloggy world! Still no exercise for me, I'm not sure why, other than I'm just lazy.


  1. Hello! I just had to say I'm very jealous you have fast food stir-fry places; we have nothing like that here. Because I hate to cook, I always try to find healthy alternatives when eating out and that sounds like a good one. Ditto for me with the exercise. *sigh* Take care!

  2. First off Congrats on loosing 22 pounds that's awesome! I myself have lost a large amount of weight and wanted to congratulate you on starting:) I wish I would have blogged my weight loss journey and not just saved it until the end of my journey! I'm excited to watch you on yours!
