Yep - love that stuff. Not sure if anyone has heard of PB2 but it is powdered peanut butter that you mix with water..........it's 50 calories for 2 tbls and since I'm a huge pb addict and real pb is so high in points - this stuff works great for me. Well except when I attempt to eat the powder by itself - that little trick is a choking hazard........who knew that something so seeminly innocent could clump up in your throat like that??? Not to mention, drinking water AFTER you eat the powder does not have the same effect as mixing before eating. You would think that after my pudding powder escapade that I would have learned to stay away from powdered substances......just not a good idea for me!
Now that I have confessed my "stupid" moment I would like to proclaim that my YMCA has finally gone to a full week of cycle/spin class.........HALLELUJAH!!! I didn't know it until last night when I hauled my butt into the gym to attempt that blasted step w/weights class - I was sooooo dreading the mental effort that class requires. Suddenly I was smacked in the face with a huge board boasting about daily cycle classes......then I saw the lights on in the cycle room - suddenly I knew that I had hit the jackpot and the exercise gods were smiling on me! WOOHOO.......I have to admit I was a little disappointed that the class was almost full with people that NEVER come to the gym - ackkkkk, it's New Year's resolution time and EVERYONE and their dog is at the gym - is it awful for me to wish some great television shows to come on soon so that our class goes back to normal?? OH that is bad of me, isn't it? So hit the spin class and worked hard - felt great! I forgot how good it feels to actually move with purpose as opposed to just shuffling through the days. I slept great and woke up this morning feeling like a million bucks - I'm ready for tonight!
Okay got a quick question for any ladies out there - my fertility doctor currently has me taking progesterone to bring on AF (sorry maybe that is too much info?) and I am swelling up like a beached whale........really I have had 150 ounces of water today (it's only 2:00 here) and I'm still swollen - not to mention the headache and my right arm is going numb.......I had the same kind of stuff last month but we thought maybe it was just that paticular medicine......now I'm thinking my body is just a freak show and it hates progesterone all together?? I've put in a call to the doc's office but was just wondering if anyone had ever had strange symptons like this?
I hope that you are all having OP days - I've got 7 of 18 AP's earned for this week already........I may actually hit my goal this week, unlike last month where I floundered all month! Hugs to you all!
BTW - Kate, the tortilla soup recipe you gave me ROCKED! I did use a can of FF refried berans to thicken it up but that was just for my personal taste - THANK YOU, the hubby is in love!
