so we got this beauty as one of our wedding gifts...we've been coveting it for years and had all these plans for it....husband has installed it in the kitchen, but since i've joined ww, there was little to no occasion to use it...you can't ever win, i know....

however, my co-worker is coming to visit in a couple of weeks with her baby daughter, so there's a chance to bake...i'll be making cookies and finger sandwiches and cheesecake, oh my...

plus, even though we aren't hosting thanksgiving this year, i am sure my mom (who is) won't refuse pies and cakes we bring...that's another chance to bake, but not eat the products necessarily...plus, i've been really intent on experimenting with desserts for my vegan brother and will be probably throwing a vegan chocolate tofu pie into the mix...

isn't it sad: we have soooooooooooo much fun baking and cooking, but can't eat much of it at all....

still, i don't intend to have more than just one slice of pie at thanksgiving...i know, that's the holy grail of all meals and comes only once a year, but i don't think this little overachiever that's me could handle a gain well just yet....i'm afraid it would throw me off...and then some...

i would pay good money for a good foot massage right now. i worked out yesterday - 30 min on the elliptical machine and i DID warm up....BUT, as of recent, every time i work out, something different hurts the next morning....this time it's the ball of my right foot *shakes head*

i'm up very early...well, for a sunday. i just simply woke up by myself - i guess that means i've had enough sleep... but, is there such a thing as enough sleep?

speaking of workouts and sleep: i have this plan, as a matter of fact, i've had it for weeks now. i thoretically could go to the gym and work out and still end up at work at a decent time all the while not disturbing any of my other morning rituals, i.e. coffee and internet, if i only could wake up at 4:30am every day...*sigh*...and then i could go to some of the classes my gym has to offer after work...it's an ideal plan, i just never implement it...meh...is there such a thing as continuous will power? so far, i've only had bursts of it...

Your Nail Polish Color is Pink

How you're unique: You're girly without being high maintenance

Why your style rocks: You're the perfect blend of stylish, preppy, and cute

What this color says about you: "I am secure enough not to follow every trend"

Family is most important in your life.


Having a high focus on family indicates that you are a loving and nurturing person. You want to have a nice big family of your own, and you are very close with your siblings and parents.

writing the thank-you notes. googling for thank you notes etiquette gave me a tension headache. according to some sites, i am about 2.5 months late on the thank you notes...*gasp*...but i wanted pretty ones with pictures and the photographer took her sweet time and about seven weeks....*sniffles*....ugh, i must be the rudest bride in history of mankind...

my god, i struggled today something terrible! i was so hungry all day and had no means of getting anything low in points to tie me over until the meal time. however, i am very glad that i refused still steaming hot fried clams and crab cakes that were offered to me at work while i was so hungry nor did i get anything from the vending machines...ww definitely helps with the power to say no, and then some. that's awesome, really! never had THAT power before!

i usually ignore the fact that i have the flex points - at least as long as i am getting used to the program and use them to fix any point "mistakes" i may make, i.e. miscalculations and similar...but tonight i used 3 of them on purpose and treated myself to half a muffin - and i feel so much better now - i rewarded myself for successfully getting through all that struggle today...i savored every bite, just last month that 1/2 muffin would have been just the beginning of a feast...

speaking of flex points - this week is the first time i would have a serious reason to use them - and that's my birthday. thankfully, my traditional b-day dinner - sushi - is amazingly low on points, so i may not even need them for the b-day dinner! b-day cake is a whole different story, though. my husband is very much into cooking and baking and traditionally spoils me rotten with food, especially on my b-day...this year he wanted to make his signature cheesecake, a pie, cookies, and creme brulee...all for me! just a month ago, i soooooooo would've let it happen, since all of these goodies are to die for...BUT...this year i had no problem telling him that he should spread it out a little. i am letting him make the lime cheesecake and will have just ONE slice of it - he can have as much he wants to and the rest will be brought to my parents and stays there. the (one) pie will be moved to thanksgiving, (one kind of) cookies to christmas, and (one bathc) creme brulee to new years. that way i have a reasonable shot at staying within the points for the holidays, learn how to remain in control even with amazing food around, and my sweetie gets to bake to his heart's content.
