Weigh In Thursday

I've lost .4 lbs. this week. Not ideal but at least it's not a gain. Aside from the best shrimp poboy ever & that cup of crab & brie soup I had, I did well over the weekend. Then Monday when I got to work I realized I'd forgotten the tortillas I use to make my wrap so I had a wrap from the food truck. It was DELISH!! I don't know the calorie count but it was a whole wheat tortilla, grilled chicken & a sensation salad mixed in. So good. Well, then Tuesday they were filming a movie in our building. For those of you that don't know Louisiana is now a hot bed of movie making activity. Apparently, the state gives some kind of crazy tax breaks. Anywho, we got an email Monday that a movie would be filmed in our building. It ended up being filmed on my floor. I couldn't eat my lunch in the normal area because it was set up with laptops & other assorted movie making crap. One of our conference rooms was wardrobe. It was neat to see. The movie is called Knights of Glory. We couldn't find anything about it online & were assuming it wasn't a big budget thing & nobody important was in it. HOWEVER, my friend Wendy's boss was in the elevator with some of the crew & she asked if anyone famous was in the movie to which they told her a name. She didn't know the person & they said it was an actor from The Big Bang Theory. We LOVE that show! Apparently, by the time she got back to Wendy she had no clue of the name of the person. Well, I made about a million trips to the bathroom & the kitchen to get water. HAHA! I saw several actors (I knew they were actors because they were wearing business suits & we were told they wanted to use our big conference room to film some scenes about business men meeting). So Wendy saw a sign posted by the elevator that said something about dressing rooms for "Jim, Luther & Clare". Soooo, we're assuming that Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon on Big Bang was the one here. I was very bummed that I didn't see him. He's soooo funny!!!

Wow, I really got off track. The whole point about the movie being filmed was that they took over our lunch area & I don't eat at my desk because I'd get interrupted ten million times & I didn't really want to go anywhere else in the building. I needed to run by the nursery to pick up a pot so I decided to go to McAllisters for a club sandwich while I was out. I'm guessing that didn't help the weight this week.

I've kept on track with my workouts this week. The rain messed up my run schedule last week but Saturday evening after we worked in the yard I finished Week 3 of C25K. I wanted to do day 1 of week 4 Sunday evening but I was tired & thought I probably shouldn't push it by running 3 days in a row. I went to Yoglates Monday, got up at 4:45 & ran Tuesday, went to Yoglates yesterday & I'm going again today, tomorrow morning will be another 4:45 wake up call. Yikes!

Toodles!
