Surfin' USA

Loved tonight's episode of Glee! Watching the football team dance to Single Ladies was so funny!

And there was a good amount of drama and humor sprinkled throughout. However, before the show came on, I decided to flip through the channels. Here's what I came across . . .

I watched UNWRAPPED on The Food Network tonight

I gotta admit . . . I can never look at sweets the same way again. :( They showed some of the melting pots and holding bins for the additives and other things used in the process of making some famous sweets and it was SO gross looking. Seeing a guy pull a ladel full of goo out of a goo crustified vat is so unappetizing. :(

Then I flipped the channel and came across a TV show called, "I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT."

And it had this girl who didn't know she was pregnant (obviously) who went to the bathroom and out popped the kiddo into the toilet and she left it in there cause she was freaking out. I have NO idea how crazy things like this happen. I mean, in all of my reasoning, you would KNOW that you were pregnant, but I guess not. Man. I just don't know. I mean, it OBVIOUSLY happens often, or they couldn't make a show about it. But man. just. wow. That is SO bizarre.

In other news, I think that learning to eat better is definitely doing a lot for me. I mean, I feel better, I breathe easier, but most of all, I've gained a stronger will to say no to some things that I used to just gorge on. For instance, I saw a commercial today for Olive Garden's Never-Ending Pasta Bowl special, and seeing the food, grossed me out. I mean, I used to eat that stuff like it was going out of style—like have at least 2 refills with various sauces and pastas. But now, the thought of eating that much pasta in one setting makes me feel queasy. This is most likely a good thing. But there's a part of me that worries that I'll never be able to enjoy those "super fantastic tasty" foods again. But in the meantime, I'm thankful for being able to learn more about making wiser food choices. Baby steps, right?

Oh my gosh, I love Unwrapped. There are so many interesting shows on the Food Network.

Speaking of food, congrats on becoming a health nut! I love it!
