Thank heavens halloween is over!!

1st off...I'm so glad that Halloween is over!! Although I have too much Candy left over, I've regained my composure. Or shall I say discipline. I don't know what came over me but I gobbled up over 10 small pieces of chocolate. Yes, I logged it ALL! What a great waste of points. It was good but not that good! :O) I will say that some good has come out of it...I learned how to make cabbage soup. It was delicious!

Last week I lost 2 pounds at weight watchers. Tomorrow is weigh in and we shall see. I'm 2 pounds away from my 5%. I won't say more--they're all greedy thoughts anyhow (like how I"d love to lose 3 pounds or even 4 just cuz it'd be nice) but I'd be quite satisfied with 2 pounds.

Exciting news on the personal front: I'm signing up for the Sweat4pets 5k that will take place Nov 14th in my area. Sweat4pets is a 5k/10k run or 1 mile fun walk that raises money for Operation Spot (Stop Pet Overpopulation Today). Their mission is to "facilitates affordable spaying and neutering by area veterinarians; advises on public policies about spaying, neutering, and responsible dog and cat care; educates the public about responsible dog and cat care...). Anyhow, I contacted the gal to make sure I could participate (since the flyer said 5k run) and she assured me that it was ok to jog/walk the 5k if I choose. I so choose!!!

Ok, so before I close let me tell a few things I've learned about myself this week. I learned that:

*I do like squash AND zucchini
*I can make cabbage soup (AND like it)
*I can stick to the points plan despite my lousy choices and
*things are more fun if I pay for it; literally and figuratively speaking

Yes, I am a glutton for punishment but hell, you only live once!


  1. What's your cabbage soup recipe? I tend to find them kind of hit or miss.

  2. The cabbage recipes is:

    2 cans fat free broth (I used beef)
    1 can tomatoes (not stewed but regular tomatoes)
    1 small head of cabbage (chopped)
    salt, pepper, and rendevous seasoning (or seasoning of your choice-like Mrs. Dash)

    toss everything into a pot, bring to boil, then lower heat and cover for 10 to 15 mins (until cabbage is at the texture you wish-I like mine soft but not mushy).

    It was really yummy....

  3. Yes, I'm glad Halloween is over too. Whew!
    Good idea to sign up for that 5k. Good for you.. that's not too far away either. I will have to give your cabbage soup a try. Sounds so good with this cold weather. :)

    Take care!

  4. Good luck in your 5k! I think that is a really fun distance and it's over quick.
