Popcorn Intervention!

I think I have a popcorn problem! More specifically a caramel popcorn problem. I mean it is 94% fat free butter popcorn and sugar free caramel but OMG it is so good. I eat the WHOLE bag!! And my band has no problem letting it slide through. I'm gonna have to stop or learn how to eat only 1/2 the bag. There is only 285 calories in the whole bag even with the caramel but still. I'm eating it when I'm not hungry. I think there are a lot worse things I could eat. But I really am having trouble curbing the caramel popcorn intake.

The time change is still kicking my butt! Thank goodness tomorrow is Tuesday! The kids have doctors appointments at 2:30 so I am getting off work at 1 so I can get home and get them. Then I will rush my daughter to her tennis match and meet my sister at the house so she can visit with my nephew. He has an orthodontist appointment tomorrow night too. So tomorrow will be a very busy day!
I was lazy today. I so was not feeling it. I went swimming for 1/2 hour and burned 159 calories. And then I went to the salon next store and got my nails done.  That's all I did today. Yes I was a slug. Tomorrow I will find time to fit in a run and a workout in between monitoring my sister and nephew and running around.

I really have to keep it going though. I only have 2 more days and I have to take it easy for 10 days. I am having surgery to repair a hernia on Friday morning. The doctor has already said that I will have to do nothing more than walk for 10 days. Similar to lap band recovery. So I am going to have to really watch what I eat and go for some serious walks. By my calculations I will be able to get back at it on the 26th. I think I will have to ease back into it after a 10 day break.

Here in Colorado we have some of the coolest weather! What is the saying? "If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes, it will change".  A few days ago we had blizzard like weather conditions.
Then it was 50 degrees yesterday, and then last night it snowed!  March is apparently our snowiest month.
The rest of this week is supposed to be beautiful here! I love Spring! It is the perfect time of year. Not too hot not too cold. I wish it could be spring all year round! I might have to break out the motorcycle Thursday! Ah Spring is almost here!

 Have a great Tuesday night!


  1. I'm addicted to popcorn these days too! Not the worst thing in the world!

  2. I need a popcorn intervention too. I freaking love popcorn!!!!!

    Your nails are amazing I wish I could keep my nails like that but I never can, I chew on them too much.

    Good luck with your hernia surgery I'm sure you're going to recover just fine and be back at it!

  3. The time change this year has kicked my butt too, and I'm not sure why. :-( I spent a few weeks in Colorado one summer, and I still remember the storm clouds rolling in most afternoons - then back came the sun - so weird! :-)

    Thanks for "finding" me, so I could find you. :-)

    Cheri :-)

  4. I was going to ask where you find that popcorn ... but I'd better not!

    I think doing just one workout in a day doesn't count as laziness, by the way.

    One of my coworkers is out on the office deck sunbathing right this minute. It must be in the mid-60s here.

  5. That popcorn is making my stomach growl, yum!
