Wow, What a Surpise

I must say that I was totally shocked last night when Constantine from American Idol was voted off, or voted less. I think my jaw dropped when I heard it. I was like "What the hell? Anthony and Scott are still in it? What the f&*%?".

I could of sworn that Scott would be the next one to go, I mean he has made it this far without looks or personality, and his singing is not that strong. From what JR told me he read somewhere that there is a force to keep Scott in it, just like last year and that whole Jasmine business, since he is thought to be the worst in the competition.

Like I said before I am an Anwar fan. I don't know who will win it this time. I saw a poll that says that Bo is the favorite to win it, but I think AI would have a hard time getting him to do everything they want...after all they do become Fox's, or whoever the recording company is, be-atch after they win. I just think that Bo is a little older, writes his own music, and maybe will not feel right singing some of the happy pop-y songs they will force him to record. I dunno.

In another AI note. I just read that Paula slept with Corey Clark?? YUCK!! Wasn't there anyone else cuter around?? Cheez, Paula. Maybe she was on drugs back then too and her bad taste should not be held against her. Full story here.

Super Size Me - Update 3

This week was not that good for me as far as the diet is concerned. I went out to eat for the first time in three weeks, only exercised 4 days, and had a "snack" (chocolate fudge pop-tart - yummy!) every day. For the coming week I had decided to cut down on my snack and stick to eating at home. On the other hand I am proud of myself, I have lost 9.5 pounds in only three weeks (I just hate the fact that my weight loss tracker does not count my .5 pound, they do mean a lot to me, and that damn thing should be rounding up not down). I should, will! - positive thinking, be breaking the 10 pound goal next week, keep your fingers crossed for me!

It Just Ain't Right

What happened to Anwar?? I really thought that he would be one of the finalists in American Idol. I liked him since he auditioned and thought that he performed well in all shows. I just can not believe that Anthony Fedorov is still in it. He is just not that good.

I am thinking that the finalists will be Carrie and Bo, I am just not crazy about either one.

Super Size Me - Update 2

Mondays from now on will be known as Diet and Fitness Day here on my blog. I will feature products that I have found that are yummy and tasty as well as not so bad for you.

On that note lets begin...If you are like me and can not have a sandwich without the extra crunch of chips you will appreciate this new Lay's Fat Free Chips. I was surprise to find out that they are quite tasty and do not leave your mouth feeling greasy. I read the label before I bought them and even though they are made with Olestra they did not have me running to the restroom (a side effect, I have heard). The chips however do come with a hefty price tag, I paid $3.50 for a regular size bag.

If you live in the Houston area Ruggles has the BEST low-fat Tres Leches cake. The dessert has 3 grams of fat and is around 350 calories. Awesome!!!

Weight Loss Update - My week has been pretty good. I have exercised every day and lost 3.5 pounds this week. Yippie. I still have 32.5 pounds to go, yuck!!

Old School Girly

I found the cutest thing iPod carry case from Burberry.

The carry case made want an iPod really, really bad until it dawned on me that I am so old school. Lets put it this way my cell phone is the only gadget I own. On the phone I hardly use the camera, don't use the internet and don't text message anyone. I am a paper and pen type of girl, I write everything down on pieces of paper that clutter my desk to no end, but I know where everything is or what stack of papers is located in in case I need it. To remember my schedule I print out a monthly calendar from and write everything in.

Ok, going back to my iPod desire...I was so into getting that iPod carry case that I actually started thinking of the songs I would put in it (Another example of my old schoolness is that I HATE to burn CDs and way prefer to buy music, my husband gasps at this, but to me the quality is not the same), the size of storage, and what color I would get. Until I started to think or try to figure out when I would listen to the thing, does it connect to my car stereo somehow? And if I do put the 1,500 songs they advertise it holds, how do I easily find the song I want to hear?

If you own an iPod and have any answers let me know, I would just love to buy me that case.

The Weight Must Come Off

I had a little too much fun with my pregnancy, by that I mean food, and now I must suffer the consequences.

I gained a massive 70 pounds~cringe~with the pregnancy and now need to find a way to get the weight off ASAP. With Baby Girl I got the weight off in about a year, but this time I am starting now, I have places to go and people to see.

The day of my one month check-up, the doctor pretty much just looks at you down there and makes sure everything is healing properly, I embarked on my massive weigh loss plan. I am not doing a crazy diet, but a high fiber with exercise every day regimen, so it should work.

The day of my check-up I was 40 pounds overweight. On Monday, a week later, I had lost 4 pounds, bringing my grand total of pounds to loose down to 36.

I will be jumping on the scale every Monday and updating the blog (I feel that doing that will keep me motivated, I hope). Wish me luck! and if you guys have any weight loss secrets pass them along.

What Is Up With Paula?

Doesn't Paula (American Idol) seem to be on something?

I could swear that she was drunk a couple of weeks ago. As I saw her I was like "Hey, that is how I act when I am drunk!". These past weeks she has been getting up, dancing , and speaking incredibly slurred, what is up with Paula?

Spring Has Sprung

This weekend we took a trip through the Texas Hill Country. The weather was awesome and the flowers were in full bloom. During our drive we visited Brenham, Chappell Hill, and Washington, Texas.

I just love drives, specially through places I have never been before. I swear, I rather take a car and drive anywhere than take a plane. Getting from point A to point Z is way more enjoyable if you get to see all the other points in between. I must admit that sometimes, as I am driving, or lost somewhere in the middle of nowhere, I do think of that Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie and hope it did not happen where I am driving through. During my life I have driven through some crazy places and seen some very strange people and believe me that is always in the back of my mind.

The Pope

A couple of years ago, while in Rome, I had the change to visit Vatican City and see the Pope give mass and bless the people. At St. Peter's Square it was nice to see so many people from different parts of the world and religions come together, I can only begin to imagine what the square has been like this past week.

Wow, I am finally catching my breath!

Harrison is doing well. We were released exactly a week ago, after being in the hospital for 10 days, from Texas Childrens. He was diagnosed with having a Urinary Tract Infection and after much testing and a full dose of antibiotics it was determined that that was all there was, just an UTI. All of tests that were performed on him (my poor baby!) came back negative. We are glad that all the tests were negative, but it is a little disconcerting that there was nothing else found that caused the UTI. Anyway, to make a long story short we are back home, he is fine, and I am totally paranoid. I check him constantly for any sign of fever.

Like I said I am finally catching my breath, so how are you guys doing?
