Muy Caliente

Just spent five and a half hours on Cinema homework. Have I told you how much I LOVE this class. Took a test and got ANOTHER B-. I could cry.

I spent WAY too much money at Express today, but I was soo happy that not only did I fit in the clothes, but I was in a size 8 jacket! It's cute, I'll put pictures up after Thanksgiving.

Marc and I also went to Noodles & Co. for lunch. I usually don't like noodles, but for some reason it was calling out to me today. We both got the Indonesian Peanut Saute with Chicken breast.

(Not my pic, looks like this person got red meat, but identical otherwise)

We both thought this was WAY TOO HOT, OMG! Like 5 alarm fire hot! I ended up eating only half, and eating the other half for dinner at work. Impressively, the whole meal was 940 calories, not terrible. (470 calorie lunch, 470 calorie dinner).

I was wicked hungry though between lunch and dinner, I think the noodles, and sauce were pretty much empty calories. No good!

I've decided to be REALLY good the next few days before Thanksgiving, that way I can fit nicely into my outfit, AND enjoy a meal without feeling like my pants button is going to fling off.

I'm off to go type up my Sociology homework. How in the world am I going to survive next semester? something's got to give, right now Marc is going to try for a job that works 6am-2pm (holy crap 1st shift!!) and I'm hoping he gets it. It offers a lot of overtime and I could use the break. I would stay home and go to school, while Marc works full time. I have no idea what's going to happen, but this would help me out SO much. Don't worry, if I do leave my job (BIG IF) I wont leave until after Christmas Bonuses!

I had Noodles & Co for the first time in Baltimore this past May, and it was pretty good. There was only a limited selection of what sounded good to me, so I wouldn't want to eat there all the time, but both the bowls I had (we went twice in that week) were pretty low cal (under 400 for the whole bowl) and yummy. I wish they had a Noodles here...

I hope the job thing works out for ya, it's nice to get a break. that was supposed to happen for me to when I had ava, but I already asked my dr to release me back...I just can't stand not contributing...I guess I'm so used to working all the time that it freaks me out to feel like I don't have any control over financial stuff...I'm crazy I think. When I go back it will only be at night though, so I'll still have my days with her.

They may be empty calories, but I am obsessed with pasta....a very bad thing I believe. oh well.

You did exactly what I plan on doing when I drop all my weight...splurging! I really wanted to use my tax money, but I'll prob just use it to pay bills...that and it's pointless to buy a new wardrobe when you plan on losing weight so if I buy anything it'll be stuff from ross or rue21 or goodwill or places with crazy sales. Yupp

Amanda, I wish I would have looked at calorie counts before I ordered! Do you remember what was the name of the bowl you had? I'd probably test it out again. It was pricy though (I thought).

Mollie, I always say how much I want to quit my job. I know that when I am not working it will be hard though. I was unemployed in 2009 for three months and they were the longest three months of my LIFE! I am not joking when I tell you that it was one of the lowest times in my life. boooo. You love have a sweet little Ava who want's your undivided attention ;)
