Guaranteed

by Meghann on October 13, 2009

Snacks that are always guaranteed to fill me up and make me happy:

  • Yogurt & Granola
  • A Big, Juicy Apple
  • Mixed Nuts
  • Protein Bar
  • And Almond Butter & Carrots

My lunch turned out to not be very filling and around 2:30 I was starving. Luckily i just happened to have one of those guaranteed filling snacks waiting for me in the fridge.

As always, the combination of Almond Butter & Carrots did the trick and I was able to make it the rest of the afternoon without wanting to chew my arm off.

It was nice after work to just come home and vege on my couch. I kept my lap top shut and caught up on Gossip Girl, Greek and the new season of Girls Next Door. It was a little weird watching Girls Next Door and realizing I am older then all of Hef’s new girlfriends. Ughh.. I don’t know whether this makes me feel old or just plain sad. What do you think?

For dinner I had a classic american meal of Hot Dog And French Fries.

Well not exactly…

By Hot Dog I mean Organic Apple Chicken Sausage on Whole Wheat Toast with Spinach, Sauerkraut, and Ketchup.

And by French Fries I mean homemade Sweet Potato Fries that were baked in the oven at 420 for 15 minutes.

With a couple of pickles on the side.

Boy do I love classic american meals. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dessert was a hodge podge of Dark Chocolate Covered Edamame, TJ Mini PB Cups. Sour Patch Watermelons, and a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss.

A Little Publicity Goes A Long Way..

Guess which insurance company finally came to their senses and accepted the ‘too fat’ baby?

Perhaps the interviews on Nightly News, Today Show, and national wide attention had something to do with it? Either way I’m glad the insurance company realized they were in the wrong, even if it was to cover their own ass.
