Are you wearing Red?

Did fine on food yesterday. I did not meet my mom last night. The new fridge got delivered and it is beautiful! Mom and I be meeting for lunch today. She likes going to Carrow's which is right down the street from my work. I ended up going to Sizzler with Danielle for dinner . I had Malibu Chicken and Shrimp. I did not eat all the shrimp and only had a few bites of the baked potato. I used to be able to eat all the shrimp and then some but not anymore.

Are you wearing Red today? I am!! Today is National Wear Red day. From their website: Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts — everyday women are dying at the rate of almost one per minute. Speak up. Make a difference. Show your support for the fight against heart disease in women by wearing red. It’s an easy, powerful way to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and stroke. If you aren't wearing red today you can still help by raising awareness and doing your own Wear Red day at work or school. Their website has all sorts of tools to help you. Please check it out when you have a chance.

Not sure what the plan is for the weekend. The Can't Say will have a spread for Superbowl including Tri-tip and all the fixings. I could give a rat's patootie about the game so I am not sure I will even go down there. I am hoping the sun will be out so I can get outside. I definitely need to get some EXERCISE! I also have a few movies I want to watch including Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants II. Hope you have a great day and weekend! Until next time...


  1. I know that my tummy is shrinking back and I am getting more full more quickly. I just need to get my mindset behind leaving food behind.

    Since I'm a calorie counter, when I know how many calories something is, I feel I need to eat all of it so my count is correct. I know I know...messed up.

    Luckily, I haven't stuffed myself in the name of calorie counting, but I can now tell that I'm filling up quicker!

  2. Nice deficit.

    Oh and I did not say workouts are fun...yet.

    Just that they are not as difficult and getting funner(real word I swear).

    You are getting there girl you have to be so thrilled with how far you have come!

  3. I didn't know about the 'wearing red day' - I'm not sure we have that over here.

    Hope you get some good weather! I'm crossing my fingers for a sunny weekend as Craig's not working and it will be nice to take Tabitha out for a long walk. :o)

  4. Glad you like the fridge and YES!!! Im wearing red! Enjoy your evening movies and the weekend!

  5. I'm laughing at Kyle's comment because I do that, too!

    Glad your new fridge is so nice.

    Yes, I'm wearing red and so is my female co-worker. We look very vibrant today!

  6. I'm wearing Red today Katie! We are not allowed to "dress down" at my job but for Go Red, we give a donation and get to wear dressy jeans and a red shirt. I would wear red and donate anyway, I think it's a great cause.

  7. Way to go with not O-D-ing on the food at Sizzler. That kind of food can taste so good it's hard for me to stop even when I'm full! Hope you get to see your movies - I just got a stack for the snow days.

  8. I agree, good job at Sizzler. That's a major danger zone for me, Sizzler! :-O

    In the "old days" I could go there and we would order dinners AND the salad bar, and eat till stuffed! Had to "get our money's worth" from that all-you-can-eat salad bar, right?! Just one of many messed-up mindsets that I have been changing.


  9. Have a great weekend!

    I'm wearing red today but I didn't realize it was wear red day until I heard it on the radio. :)

  10. Thanks for reminding me about the red! I'm just about to get dressed for work! :-)

  11. That's why my office all gave me a look when I wore green today..... dang it! Well thanks for filling me in.

    Enjoy the fridge, I think we need one soon. It's starting to hold it's own conversations!!!

    Have a great weekend Katie!!!!!

  12. Husband has to leave Sunday, so I won't be SuperBowl chowing. Not that i would anyway. I want to see traveling pants 2. I liked the first one a lot. :)

    Enjoy your weekend.

  13. Superbowl time again?
    I never did keep up with basket ball!
    (oh - it's football? my bad!)

  14. Katie, you are making me proud of you, I think it's happening big time for you now!


  15. i totally forgot about the wear red thing! boo!

    i am so glad the superbowl is not a big thing here. it food/drink that goes with it sounds intense!

    enjoy the weekend!

  16. Yesterday was actually the first I had heard about "Wear Red Day". What a wonderful idea! :)

    I don't watch the Superbowl either. Sister Hood of the Travelling Pants 2 and Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs are both really good movies!


  17. WE do not have that go Red Day here at all!
    You are the second woman who has said she does not care about SuperBowl! Well done. lol

  18. Ooo! Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is a really cute movie :] I liked it.

    Have fun not watching the superbowl. Just like me! I'm actually more interested in the half time show than anything else. hehe.

    Have a great weekend!

  19. I didn't even know about the red but I wore it anyways-maybe ppl thought I was awesome for all the wrong reasons.

  20. So, I have been considering getting one of those Bodybuggs or something like it. What can you tell me about your experience with it? Do you feel that its accurate?

    Love your blog by the way. would you like to exchange links?


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
