Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Sweet Temptation

Last week I commented on Anna‘s blog about how I was jealous that she got a free food scale from Fit Blogging. She emailed me later that night asking me if I wanted it because she already has one. Yes, please! My short-term memory is horrible so I was totally surprised to receive a package today. I opened the box, only to find mini eggs (my ultimate weakness. well, one of them), whopper eggs (brings me back to childhood), Cadbury egg, a vegan cookie, organic DOG treats for the rat, a food scale, and a sweet note from Anna. Anna, this was above and beyond, really. Thank you so much for thinking of me and going out of your way to make my day special.

My lunch kept me satisfied till 4:30 (!!!) at which point I ate a yogurt and some chex mix. Len and I are planning to hang in tonight with some wine to celebrate some successes Len has had at work.  We’ll be snacking from a spread of some kind–god bless a good spread.

Tomorrow after we run (hopefully there’s no wine headache to battle with) I’m taking off for another fun girls weekend. A bunch of my college friends are meeting in CT for a fun night of shenanigans.We were told to bring a wig so it should be interesting.

Off to the grocery store for some goodies.

Thank You Anna!

  2. Yay! Glad you got it. Let me know how Ellie likes those traets– we’ve actually never had them, but they looked good.

    Have a great girl’s weekend!

  3. Yesss I love a good spread (TWSS) too. It’s my boyf’s and my favourite…a big ol’ platter dinner of meats, vegies, dips, and crackas. So good!

    I was all set to buy some scales and then my roomie told me we had some…they’ve been sitting in my kitchen for the past FIVE MONTHS. Fail.

  4. OMG I have been so preoccupied with all the stuff going on that I totally forgot that easter is right around the corner! I need to go to the drugstore ASAP and get my Robin Eggs! Whopper are my fave EVER and when Robin Eggs are in “season” I turn into Audrey 2!

    • Really? I wish I had forgotten about it too! I’d have a lot less chocolate in my blood.

  5. How sweet was that! I love Cadbury mini-eggs too. Yum! Is it just me, or are there some great sweet treats at Easter!?

  6. Wow, whata package! That set you up for a yummy weekend for sure.

    I’m interested in the “bring a wig” with no explainations. Sounds like it could get crazy 🙂
