Tales update

It has been 2 weeks since I did a weigh in. I have been sick for most of it. Boo.

I haven't had much of an appetite since Major got home. I seem to just be having one malady after another. So, that has been helpful in the times when we eat out and such. At least I don't overeat. I also have tended not to be able to taste a lot of what I eat. What a waste!

On a happy note, the Racer and I ate at California Pizza Kitchen yesterday with 2 of our kiddos. We were really craving the greek pizza. Why else would we have taken 2 hungry and tired children to a restaurant across town?!? The kids were doing well, thankfully, and she brought the bread out quickly, but then it seemed to take forever to get our food. They were starting to get restless and I could only hold them off with gum for so long. And in their best effort to stick-it-to-the-man, both children decided they did not want to eat even one of their noodles (a typical staple in their diet). But, both wanted our pizza instead. Now, this pizza is covered in veggies (tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, avocado) and it has like a vinegar based sauce on it. Now, Dirty Job isn't a fan of these types of veggies. The Cutie will spit out anything that tastes of any kind of vinaigrette. This is definitely not their kind of pizza. Each one of us uttered the words, "You may have some, but I don't think you are going to like it." So, wouldn't you know, they basically wanted to inhale our pizza. Of course they took all the yummy stuff off, so really all they were eating was the pizza crust. But, I just think it is a great illustration. Don't try to stick anyone in a box. Even if you think you know how they will react.

Wow! You have done really great, and I love that pizza too. You know, without the meat and all that crap, it's not really bad, I just have to adjust my eating throughout the day to compensate.
