Not Sure What to Call This One

Thanks so much for all the pilates advice. I had no idea there were so many devotees out there. I'm definitely going to do it again, but with a mat or towel under me b/c my tailbone hurt for about a day and a half afterwards. In fact, I may do it tonight.

So, the WW chicken/broccoli recipe turned out nicely, but I didn't use broccoli. I substituted green beans and it turned out fine. Just put salt, pepper and thyme on chicken cutlets. Put garlic in pan and brown. Then brown chicken. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Add vegetables and allow to cook through. I served it with rice, but I didn't eat it. It was good.

I discovered on WW etools today that I have been TOTALLY overestimating the number of activity points I get from hiking. I had been putting in too many hours. I realized it today b/c my mom and I went on a short hike for only about an hour and it was only 3 activity points. Oh well. It makes much more sense now :)

I've decided for the time being to not apply to be a WW receptionist. I'm just not totally comfortable with WW meetings in Vegas yet and I don't want to push it unnaturally by having to work at the various locations. I think I might have found a meeting leader I like. She was the receptionist when I weighed in on Friday and she said she has a meeting at that location on Tuesdays. So I'm planning on stopping by in the next week or so. I didn't stay for the meeting on Friday morning because I didn't like the vibe I was getting from the meeting leader who was walking around talking with people and she looked anorexic and that worried me. (Oh, and the last meeting I sat through the leader said that we were all there because we were all food addicts and WW is like our 12 step program. I totally disagree with her and think it is quite dangerous to be throwing out terms like that when you don't know what they mean. I think it is possible that she thinks she made up the term and doesn't realize that there really are people out there who have an addiction to food/certain kinds of food.)

Okay, the hot tub is warm enough now for a dip :) Talk to you later!

I agree with you with the “addict” comment. You should definitely be careful when using that word, because it can become self-prophesizing.
