"Fine girls runnin' up in Brooklyn" - Kerri Chandler, Brooklyn (featuring E-Man)
# of pounds lost this week: 4.5
Phase 2 hacks: I've added water crackers to my diet and will add pita bread as well. I'm limiting meat to once a day and most of the time I don't want it. Last night I had chicken black bean chili and my stomach disagreed with that decision. I would've been just fine with the hummus and tapenade platter to go with my steamed veggies.
Life changes: I didn't fast food it after dancing my face off at Pause Friday night; I didn't steal some of Anna's fries at dinner last night. I'm tending not to finish everything on my plate when going out to eat.
The dream I had last night: Driving on the open road on a Thursday. I stop and go to the bathroom. At the urinal, my friend Alexis tells me to go to Hawaii. I complain about the price. She tells me to book a ticket. It's affordable so I do. Flash Forward, I'm in Hawaii. Todd Kelley and EJ live there. For some reason it looks like Vegas in Hawaii. Another version of Alexis is there. She has a twin which I guess are actually triplets because neither is the Alexis who told me to go to Hawaii. I'm in a men's room at a Hawaiian Casino and Alexis #2 (platinum blonde Alexis) is on the floor, she tells me it's time to go home. I agree but the price is much more expensive to come home than it was to leave. Before I can go to the airport, it is midnight and the casino bar is giving away free drinks. I am handed something called "Lagerschlager." It is a beer but you must drink it through a large collection of ground up spices at the top of the bottle. It tastes not quite right. The spices won't leave my mouth. They are clumping. As I fight to chew through the spices, I'm desperately thirsty and I wake myself up.
