tiffers: get your freak on! tag

another tag that i don't have time to film!  plus, this blog is sitting here gathering dust, so follow it and leave us comments!

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?

most everyone as far as close family and friends calls me 'tiffers', like you guys do!  it's the only cool one, anyway.  mandy and mom call me 'clunk' for reasons i don't understand.  i'm pretty sure i'm not a clang-y robot.

2. What's a weird habit of yours?

i suck soda through my teeth to make it less fizzy.  mom always tells me to stop, but i don't care.

3. Do you have any weird phobias?

it's not a phobia, per se, but i hate the sound of liquids pouring out of bottles.  i don't know why.  it hurts my brain, even if it's just on t.v.

4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?

donny osmond - soldier of love!!!

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?

i'm sure i have a million of then, but i can't think of one off the top of my head!

6. What's one of your nervous habits?

i pop my knuckles a lot when i'm thinking about something i don't want to do, like if i'm procrastinating about making an important phone call.

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

on the right.  the comfy comfy right.

8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?

i don't remember my first!  my favorite is a big rabbit named brandie.  i slept with her so long with my arms around her neck that i made her head floppy.  i still have her on a shelf in my closet.  if you want to know how mean mandy is, she once told me that brandie was full of big bugs that would come out of the rips in her. . .

9. What's the drink you always order at starbucks?

i like to try knew things.  at gen con i learned that i loved iced white chocolate mochas.  :D

10. What's a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?

meh, mandy is the beauty guru, i don't tell anybody what to do!  i only listen to what mandy preaches to me!

11. Which way do you face in the shower?

towards the wall for the most part, then towards the shower head while i wash my face.  doesn't everybody?

12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?

go watch mandy's tag video for the finger thing.  we both can do that!  and if we do it really fast you can hear them pop and it's gross.  

13. What's your favorite comfort food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

anything cheeeeeeeeeeeeeesy.  :D

14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?

'for realsies.'

15. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing?

usually whatever shirt i wore that day and my pj pants, unless the shirt is especially nice.

16. What did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it wasn't that hot?

big baggy t-shirts.  when i was in high school i though i was a rocker in all of my t-shirts, but really i just looked kinda like a boy.  once i realized this i cut it out.  now t-shirts to me are just lounge-y, not because they look *bad* but just because i don't really like the way they look on me, specifically.

the end!

love, tiffers.

tiffers: tagged!

 i wanted to vlog for you guys today, but i feel like totally crap.  like, sinus-y allergy-y crap and i just want to lay around and be lazy and whine. . .so i decided i’d do this tag thing in written word form, that way i can answer all the questions without taking up an hour of your time!

tiffers: littlefatme's mini challenge day 1!

okay, so as far as weigh in, maintained again this week.  getting a little bummed chillin' here at 267 but it's better than gaining!

so, as far as my perfect day for my perfect week, i did get a lot more fruits and stuff in today which was pretty cool.  got down about 40 oz of water, which is less than i had been getting, but i made the mistake of bringing a drink to work in my stainless steel bottle and thus had to finish it before i could fill it with the nice free filtered water in the break room.  i'm taking it empty tomorrow and i'm gonna fill it up when i get there and just take me a diet soda to have with lunch or something.  that way i can just keep filling that bottle up all day!

work was mainly just sitting around on the computer, so not as much activity there as i would have liked, obviously.  but i should start my third shift this week which will really help and hopefully tomorrow i'll have an actual schedule and can plan days when i need to be treadmillin'.

i guess that's it!  not a bad start, tomorrow will only get better!

love, tiffers.

tiffers: a work blog!

i filmed a weigh-in day video, but it was super suck-ish so i'm not posting it, but here are the main points:

1.)  i maintained.  still at 267.
2.)  chris lost 2 pounds, putting him at 300 and about 20-25 pounds lost.  :D
3.)  i want a bike but didn't get to buy the one at goodwill.

that's about it.  went to goodwill to see if the bike was still there but it was gone.  of course.  you have to make up your mind when you're at goodwill cuz things don't stay around too long!

in other news, i start my new job tomorrow!  the extra money is gonna be awesome, but i'm also looking forward to it to give me some sort of schedule.  when i started weight watchers i was working part time at spencer's gifts (ringing up customers, making sure no one opened the sex toys, stuff like that), and it really helped me out because the time that i was working it was busy and i had a snack break instead of a full lunch hour since i was only part time.  plus mall food was way to expensive, so it kept my on track.

right now i've been playing housewife.  i try my best to keep myself busy but sometimes i'm  just bored and food goes in my mouth.  which is why i think i've been maintaining lately.  i'm not eating more food but i've just gotten bored with my routine so i'm not as active.  so i'm excited for those eight-hour days of moving and being busy and having a smart ones and some water to keep me going instead of sitting on my bed watching spongebob and eating a bunch of leftovers and a million vanilla coke zeros.  so yeah.

i celebrated my new job today with some buffalo wild wings, a vanilla bean frappucino and about three hours of mall walking!  my feet hurt so bad from all the walking, but i made it a point to eat first so we could spend the day walking some of it off!

also, while at the buffalo wild wings, the waitress grabbed my hand and started gushing about my engagement ring and congratulated chris for picking such a good one!  it was so cool!  i hope that happens forever because i love chris and this amazing ring of mine!

i guess that's it!  i'm gonna  be keeping my eyes open for a cheap-y bike so i can ride around the neighborhood and up to the goodwill for stuffs!

love, tiffers.

tiffers: waffle house madness!

so, my day was mostly ruined yesterday and i was quite sad.

it started out awesome, i got my job (yay!), had to go pee in a cup (boo!), then have an awesome yay breakfast with my dude at the waffle house.  i knew waffle house was gonna be a million points, so chris and i decided on salad for dinner (taco salad!  7 pts!).  and all was well with the world.

come to find out, an entire party was coming to our house and didn't tell us until about 20 minutes before it got there.

needless to say, i raged.

not because of the party.  i like parties.  i would have loved that party if i had known about it the day before.  so i was mad cleaning (didn't clean cuz didn't expect a PARTY to show up) and getting dressed (again, wasn't expecting a PARTY).  and i was mainly angry because when the party did show up, it showed up with pizza and ice cream cake.  luckily, this is what weekly points are for, but i'd rather not use them so early in the week. . . .

chris and i avoided the pizza (it was papa john's, way to many points) and had a small piece of cake (i counted it as ten points).  i still made my salad, i had two servings of it and have some left over for today.  i ate like half a head of lettuce, mandy would be so proud.  anyway, i still even ate more salad then i should have because i was craving this gooey melting ice cream cake sitting in the middle of the kitchen.  i figured i'd be better off in the long run going over points with salad than with cake.

so it's wednesday and i'm already down to 32 weekly points.  SIGH.

BACK TO THE WAFFLE HOUSE MADNESS though.  i got a tasty ham and cheese omelette, hold the yolks (which it's fifty extra cents to do that.  SIGH.) and the damn thing was still 14 points!!  so i decided to go on a mission to make a BETTER and LESS POINT-Y omelette.  which i did.

this one is easily twice the size of the one i got at waffle house and was only FIVE points.  it's three egg whites (0 pts), 2 cut up low fat hot dogs(2 pts, it's a childhood fav, i don't know if people still actually eat that as adults but I DO), 1/3 cup diced tomatoes (0 pts) and 1/3 cup shredded cheese (3 pts).  put a little hot sauce on top (hot sauce and eggs just go together) and it was freakin' delish.  plus it lasted way longer than 5 bites like the waffle house one.

i can only assume it's the cheese and the butter that made the waffle house one so many points.  and it was only two egg whites, i'm pretty sure.  and it was like, sliced american cheese which i'm not a super fan of.  it gets plastic-y when it gets cold.  ewwwww.

so that's it.  go enjoy yourself a tasty omelette today!

love, tiffers.
