Well, I have made the jump into the “vlog” (video blog) world! I decided that since I getting the chance to use the Flip HD Camera for Eight To The Eights, that I can finally get around to vlogging! Plus, I can talk alot faster than I can type! 😉
Moving onto a quick recap of the past two days!
Yesterday was the first challenge for our Eight To The Eights contestants, a one mile run. It was AMAZING. Be sure to check the Eight’s blog for all the information/pictures/videos. The photo finish for the winning team must NOT be missed!
We took over Panera Bread last night after the race!
Pretty groovy, huh?
So that, in all its craziness, was last night.
This morning, an empty jar meant “oats in a jar” but an epic fail occured when my camera battery died. Managed to snap a shot of the jar though. Use your creative minds to imagine the oatmeal-gloriousness that filled this empty void:
After breakfast, and re-charging the camera battery…it was time to head to Weight Watchers! The local chapter here contacted me and wanted me to speak to their amazing ladies participating in the program! They were amazing.
It was such a great experience! Sharing stories, triumphs, failures…all with health and well being as the common goal! Awesome stuff.
There was also a class or three on todays agenda, so I was again…running around like crazy, which is just par for the course in my life!
Lunch was at the new Olive Garden they had just built. (I know, how sad is it that we are JUST now getting an Oliva Garden)
You know I had to start with the bread of joy.
And a nice warm bowl of the veggie soup!
For the entree, I was sad to see a major lack of both healthy options, and a MAJOR lack of vegeterian options. This is when you have to get up close and personal with the waiter…and have them make something special. 9 times out of 10 they do not mind, and will be happy to accomodate special requests. Look what came out!
Whole wheat pasta, with steamed broccoli and asparagus…tossed in a Venetian Apricot sauce! YUM!
See, it pays to ask for special requests…just remember to be extra nice to your waiter/waitress. 😉
Dinner was pretty random, and was inspired by leftover “chicken” salad!
“Mock” Chicken Salad sandwich, with steamed broccoli, natural cheddar…Stacy’s Whole Grain Pita Chips, and come carrots!
And that being said…I am ready to collapse.
5:45am class….7:45am class….9:30am class…then the Eight To The Eights “Biggest Loser” finale party, ALL on the agenda tomorrow. Most of which starts at the butt crack of dawn.
