Friday Five

1. So lent is upon us. While I am neither Catholic, or super religious…I feel the need to give up diet soda for good. What better reason than the season for making a sacrifice? Usually all I drink is water at home and my office, with the exception of my daily coffee in the morning, and my daily green tea at work. Where does my problem lay? When we go out to eat. I cant help myself, I love Diet Pepsi and Diet Coke from the fountain. ESPECIALLY with Mexican food. Diet soda is just terrible and awful for you and I know that and I need to just let it go.

2. Riceworks – Have you tried these things? They are seriously so good! They are made with brown rice and you can actually see the rice in the chips. I have only tried the sweet chili flavor so far, but they are super crunchy and fill that snack craving that I get sometimes.


3. Beta – I have just completed my first beta week in T25. Holy muscles batman. I feel like I have a 200 lb man sitting on each of my shoulders and Speed 2.0 moves so damn fast that I had to check twice to see if I accidentally hit the fast forward button on the remote before setting it down. I did not. I better be a damn beast after the end of this month, that is all I am saying!!!

4. This weekend is Berkley’s 11th birthday. (One of our nieces.) I told my sister her kids are breaking me. Three birthdays within a few weeks of each other is just crazy! I am super excited though because I will get to spend more time with my sister and my mom is coming to the party too 🙂 She couldn’t make it last weekend to Cooper’s.

5. This is me daily:

Happy Friday everyone!

    I love those chips! The only problem is the bag is too small. I can eat them all in one setting. Which might be opposite of what I’m supposed to do…Have you tried hummus chips? They’re pretty good too!

    Another good snack to try! Can you find these at Target too? I’ll put them on my list for next weekend.

    I don’t drink soda anymore, but I’ll always make an exception when I’m hungover because diet coke from the fountain tastes amazing when I’m feeling like garbage. Have a great weekend!

    yes girl, YES to the T25. i love that you’re so dedicated to this program. and i inadvertently gave up coffee when i got sick so i’m sticking with it for lent even though i’m not religious at all. surprisingly, i sleep even better since giving up coffee!

    good luck giving up soda!!!!

    Ok, so I’m really hungry (haven’t had lunch yet) and my mouth may or may not have watered at the thought of those riceworks things!! They sound so yummy and a perfect gulit-free snack! I’ve been indulging in the little snack sized bags of chips my work keeps stocked up and these would be a great alternative. Snacking is a weakness of mine so alternatives are always appreciated!

    What is it with fountain diet coke that makes it so good though? And I mean how often do you go out to eat? Honestly I think that just having one when out as a treat really isn’t that bad. I mean I know it isn’t good but hey it’s fewer calories than a margarita 🙂

    I know what you mean about family stuff bleeding you dry! In June/July we have four family birthdays plus Father’s Day and mine and Andrew’s anniversary. I better start saving…

    There are some things that you just HAVE to have pop with, no question. I tried to give it up and I failed. I don’t even care anymore! hahah

  • Reply Kate March 8, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    What is Beta? I’ve got to try those Riceworks chips!

  • Reply Jules March 8, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I think thats my favorite e-card of all time!

  • Reply Meegan March 9, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    Why is it that fountain Coke and Mexican food is the best thing ever? It’s so hard, but we can resist!

  • Reply jackie March 10, 2014 at 1:20 am

    haha YES to #5. and those ricework chips are so yummy and i feel less bad eating them than eating regular chips.

  • Reply Angi March 10, 2014 at 2:45 am

    I was going to give up things for lent (although I’m not religious, I guess it’s just a thing), but I seriously already forgot. Dang! Those chips looks amazing though, I’m going to have to check them out!
