I live in Southern California. To be more specific I live in what is known as “The Valley.”
“The Valley” gets uncomfortably hot all throughout the year. This is something I am very much accustomed to considering I was born and raised here but the only problem is, I now live with my Grandma who despite having a perfectly working central air conditioning system in her house, she out right refuses to use it unless I beg her. Seriously you guys, this is a picture of the inside temperature of the house. It is almost 7:30pm and it’s 83 degrees inside the house? Stop it.
My Grandma swears that it is comfortable and “nice” inside the house. When she says things like this it makes me want to LOSE MY MIND.
Considering it was cooler outside then it was inside I took Tessa on our evening walk around the neighborhood. My dog is ridiculously cute. I can’t handle it. I have trained her to know where home is in the event that she chases after the Ice Cream Man and can’t find her way back. I need her to be fully prepared, ya know. So here are 2 videos I took of her displaying her keen abilities of knowing where home is without any human assistance other than some minimal verbal coaxing.
I took this video on Monday:
This second video is from tonight. Good job, Tessa! You are the best!
I earned + 2 Activity points from walking le dog tonight. High Five.
I am happy to report that when Tessa and I returned from our walk the air was turned on. MY GRANDMA DOES LOVE ME!!!!! I rewarded her with doing what she asked me to do which was joining her in her bed to watch some history show about WWII. My dog came with.
Food Entry for the Day
- Breakfast consisted of 1 lb box of fresh strawberries and coffee = zero points
- I was craving that delicious Caprese sandwich again. Should I refresh your memory?
My co-worker ordered the same thing because she said it looked really good when I got it on Monday. She completely agreed with me that it is amazingly delicious. Now I have some terrible news. As I was sitting in a meeting she was in the other room apparently looking up the nutritional facts on this thing. She texted me how many calories is in it……..1100!!! I almost screamed in my meeting. Good News though: I only ate half of it at lunch and I took it home with me to eat the other half for dinner tonight so I guess it’s not toooooooo bad but 1100 calories in a vegetarian sandwich?!??!?!! COME ONNNNN!
Based on that calorie content and from what I know about what makes up a Caprese sandwich I am just going to assume that this thing cost me at least 18 points. Who knows, maybe it was even 20. That’s ok though because I didn’t eat any chips with it and like I mentioned before I spilt it between lunch and dinner.
4.) I got hungry a little later on and ate 2 hard-boiled eggs (no yolks)= 1 point.
5.) Almost forgot….I had a half diet coke/half reg coke concoction at lunch. It’s exactly how it sounds…I mix diet coke with reg coke so it doesn’t taste exactly like poop diet coke, yet I cut out half of the calories of a regular coke = 3 points.
6.) I ate half of a cookie at our meeting. How I didn’t eat the entire thing, I will never know. I apparently have way more self-control and will power then I ever thought I had = 2.5 points
7.) More strawberries as a snack = 0 points.
