The wooer

Have you ever noticed in a group exercise class, there is always a “wooer”?  Some person that randomly shouts, “Woo” when the class gets tough?  There was a wooer in my spin class tonight.  I couldn’t tell where in the room said wooer was, but but every so often, there was a definite woo.  I don’t know if these wooers are aerobics teachers in a former life (or now) and are just used to wooing.  It makes me a little embarrassed for them to tell you the truth.  No offense to you wooers out there.

I made Rachael Ray’s Chickpeas, Thank you meal for dinner. The sauce was probably a little thicker than it should have been. It was more like a dip than a pasta sauce. I’m sure I could have pureed it a little longer. It would probably be quite good as a dip actually. I might have to try that soon.


How much is that doggie in the window?

I went to an Adopt a Golden event today. My friend Joan has a friend, Melissa, that volunteers for them so the three of us went. I saw the perfect dog. The problem is, Jason thinks he is too old. He is 5. I think that is fine. He’s out of the hyper puppy stage but still has plenty of years left in him. I wish Jason had gone to the event with me so he could have seen how awesome this dog is. (Yes, I am totally writing knowing he’ll read it!)

I want this dog.

In other news, I cannot seem to stay away from the kitchen tonight. I forgot to eat lunch so when I got home, I was really hungry. It was about 5, so Jason and I went to Lettuce Souprise You for dinner. There, I stuffed my face. I had a salad with lowfat ranch, two bowls of veggie soup, some green beans, a little lowfat muffin and a small thing of pudding. I felt like I had to be rolled out of the restaurant. So, despite my dinner pigout, three hours later, I was hungry and nibbling in the kitchen. Argh.


My stomach hurts.  Have I mentioned that my stomach hurts a lot.  I think that it might be from carbonation, maybe it’s from caffieine.  It’s definitely caused by artifical sweeteners and stress though.  So, I know I can’t help the stress part, but a normal person would lay of the artificial sweeteners.  But not smarty pants here.  I got into work today early to work on a project.  I had gone to an event last night where some large glasses of wine were consumed so I wasn’t exactly feeling my best.  So, I went to the fridge and got a diet coke.  I don’t know if that was the culprit or what.  I didn’t drink the whole can.  It took me virtually all day to drink 3/4ths of it.  I know I should write down what I eat and when it hurts, but that seems too difficult.  I purposefully didn’t drink any soda (although I did have tea) yesterday and it didn’t hurt.  I just don’t understand how, after drinking soda habitually for so many years, it suddenly is causing me so much gastric distress.  I mean, I’ve always had stomach aches.  It’s nothing new.  Because I’m an internet hypochondriac, I started googling IBS symptoms.  I fit the mold.  Mainly, bloating, gas and feeling better once I go to the bathroom.  But then again, I also thought I had hypothyroidism last week and my thyroid is tip top.

I’m supposed to go to kickball in ten minutes.  I’m not really sure how that’s going to work considering I have to make a dash to the toilet every two minutes.  Fun times in the life of Lee.
