Friday, I told ya'll about a dilemma I've been facing regarding getting enough fat in my daily diet while avoiding too much protein. I've been using peanut butter to get in my fat daily, however peanut butter is protein heavy, and I've been consuming lots of protein heavy foods lately. Too much protein = weight gain. While I haven't gained weight, I believe the amount of peanut butter I've been eating has been holding me back on the scale. I'm subbing out peanut butter this week for natural almonds which I bought individually packaged in 100 calorie packs. I like for all of my meals and snacks to be portioned out and individually packaged. This makes portion control simple and removes the temptation to over eat.
As a weight loss blogger, I'm pretty sure I should be tuning into watch the Biggest Loser on Monday nights, but I've had a long standing sick addiction to the Bachelor. It's so bad it's good, and I can't stop watching.
SPOILER ALERT! Sometimes I literally feel uncomfortable watching this show. Other times, I can't believe I'd ever think of jumping ship. 30 seconds into the show last night bachelor Sean was running around looking all kinds of hot sexy man shirtless in the gym. THANK YOU ABC!
This picture is ridiculously odd and awkward. I love it
However, the sweet shirtless moment would soon be over shadowed by the horribly awkward that is this show. Insert a three plus minute on screen kiss, because who doesn't want to start setting world records on national television with a man who is dating 20 something other chicks. GAH. I felt so bad for my girl Leslie. That must have been horribly awkward. She is still one of my favorites, and I'm dying to know where she got that adorable pink lace number she had on.
Then there are the girls who are cast for ratings, because they are so crazy the other women are afraid of them. There are two stage 5 clinger crazy girls that stand out to me:
Tierra. I'm 99% convinced she faked a fall down the stairs in a bid to be the damsel in distress. Additionally, the previews of her crying and hysterical in upcoming episodes are legitimately frightening. I don't think she realizes she didn't sign up to be a Disney Princess, Sean isn't Prince Charming and you aren't trapped in a tower awaiting rescue, it's the Bachelor. Drink some wine and get in line girl.
Do you watch the Bachelor? Who are your favorites??
Heading into work this morning, no longer feeling like a busted can of biscuits- thank you clean eating an exercise. Always saving the day! On the agenda this afternoon- 3 mile run and strength training. Let's get it!
