Hello, my name is Lauren and I'm addicted to "WORDS with friends." My hair stylist mentioned the game to me in passing about 2 months ago but I couldn't find it for android so I forgot all about it. Then someone on Facebook mentioned playing and I got excited because they have an android; I tried downloading again and this time it was available! Well I pretty much haven't stopped playing since, I've had to charge my phone twice in a matter of 24 hours and I'm inviting everyone I know that has a smart phone to join a game. It's bad. Basically it's like scrabble but there's no time limit, you just play when you have time (at lunch, on hold, waiting for the computer to load, etc). I played all through dinner, in between turns on wii sports and while watching tv on Tuesday night.I even played before getting out of bed Wednesday morning. When I shut off my alarm I had an alert that it was my turn on a game so I logged in and played before getting in the shower, lol. If anyone wants to play my user name is lfdimples. I somehow managed to find enough time to get dressed in this OOTD: my sweater is from Old Navy and the tank underneath is from New York & Company, shocking I know. The pants are from The Limited with Naturalizer black booties and the same necklace I've been wearing for a week from Etsy.
Joe didn't get a chance to grocery shop while he was off on Tuesday so we're down to the bare bones in the kitchen. I made myself my old standby the egg sandwich with a glass of Trop 50 = 345 calories. I looked it up and it would appear that I can count the juice as a serving of fruit, YAY!
Work was pretty mellow, no mind altering chemicals being used I guess. I was surprised how not hungry I was all morning, I was concerned I'd miss lunch with the girls again. But just like clockwork 12:00 popped onto my clock and my stomach started growling. While searching the refridgerator for breakfast food that morning I came across one last fruit cup! I was pretty excited to be able to eat my regular lunch again = 380 calories. Also that would be Dawn giving my fruit cup bunny ears...
I cannot get over how sore I was! I think it's mostly from Monday night's group power class but I'm sure my wii sports workout didn't help. Thankfully I only had a 3 mile run scheduled, I wouldn't be working my arms at all. Angela and I decided to meet up at the gym for our run. She's been going through some stuff and really needed a fast & furious run which would be hard for me to keep up with if we were outside. I decided to joke around a little bit and took a picture of her while we were on the treadmills, obviously I don't have the steadiest of hands.
Her need for speed must have been rubbing off on me because towards the end I decided to jump from my normal 5.3 to 5.5 and then to a 6.0 and it wasn't too bad! I was crazy sweaty, should have taken a picture, but I felt really good! Look at that time, I would have beat my Thanksgiving 5K time by at least a full minute!
After dinner we hung out in the living room playing WORDS with friends, messing around Facebook and going through google reader. I'm pretty proud to say able to keep it under 100 unread posts for over a week; I'm going to try harder to comment on the blogs too now. I know it really makes a difference to me when I read comments here. I was getting kind of bummed and down on the whole blogging thing when I didn't get any comments for 5 days straight. But I figure I can't be upset when no one is commenting on my thoughts if I'm not commenting on theirs. It was funnt at one point during Parenthood or American Idol I mentioned that we have a very nice rotating scrabble board upstairs that we could use instead of sitting next to each other on the couch with our phone's out. Joe's response, "we pay good money each month to play on the internet instead," lol! Before going to bed I realized I still had a decent number of calories left over so I decided to have a weight watchers ice cream bar = 110.
