Thank God for Yogi; Who Does That???

Yogi Green Tea take me away.....

I have been loving this stuff!! Really gives me that little push when I get the sleepies at work!

This has been one of those, oh so "different/strange" mornings... I kind of like it in a weird way, does that make me weird?

The weather here in Nashville is just crappy!! All day yesterday and last night, Justin Bruce (my favorite weather guy), and every other meteorologist on TV had all of Nashville up in a tizzy that we were going to have freezing rain...there was a winter weather warning from midnight last night until noon today!!
Love him...

Freezing Rain was upon us and everyone hits the grocery store for their bread and milk!!
Seriously...people in Nashville are nuts when it comes to winter weather advisories!!! Thanks Justin!

Well, you see my husband is a Metro Nashville Elementary school teacher, and let me tell you...he is like a big kid when it comes to a possible snow day!!! It is really the cutest thing I have ever seen. I love that man. Every surrounding county was called out of school EXCEPT ours!
Poor hubs had to go in!!

Anyway...we still like the whole anticipation of it, even if it doesn't happen. And then there are the rituals!!!
Apparently this one doesn't work!

So, I just have to tell you all what happened to me a little while ago here at work.... Let me preface this by saying that on Friday's I work in the repair station at Averitt Air (they work on small private aircraft)...so it is all men. I work at the front desk answering the phone and basically sit by myself all day...it's very quiet and most of the time, boring. It's 9am, and I was feeling a hankering for my cup o Yogi Green Tea Energy to pick me up a bit, so I mosey down the hall to heat up some hot water for my tea and you open a door that leads to that area, right beyond the door is the men's room. I opened the door and there was a man (Indian or something wearing scrubs..clean cut) standing in front of the urinal taking a WIZ....WITH THE DOOR WIDE OPEN...the lights were off, but clearly that's what he was doing. Who does that in a public building?? Then he washed his hands and left... But he looked up at me when I opened the door like it was nothing...like he was in the privacy of is own home. What the.... HELLLOOOOO!

I asked a couple of the guys who he was, and they had no idea!! They said it was some guy that had his plane parked on the ramp, and just wandered in to use the bathroom. It was disturbing, yet funny as all get out!!!! I am just so relieved (no pun intended) that I didn't catch a glimpse of his little friend!!

Well anywhoo.....that's been my morning.

I am still on point with sticking to my South Beach/Calorie Counting plan.
It seems to work for me.

Haven't felt the need to stray at this point except for a few adult bevs. here and there. But as long as I keep seeing the scale go in the right direction, I am good with it.

Still weighing everyday... sometimes it will go up a point or two, then back down... but every day I am still lower than I was at the same time the week before. Tomorrow I will log my weight in Spark. It will be my first time since I started back. Saturday's were always my "official" weigh in days, so I think I will stick to that.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! I am helping my friend (and neighbor up the street)...Juli, move into the house right next door to me!! Good times!!

    emoticon Yogi also has a Blueberry Tea -- It is "Slimming" or "Diet" Something. Maybe "Slim Life"? I don't have it with me right now so I'm not sure. I really don't notice it doing anything for my Appetite, but I like the Smell and the Flavor!!

    I am really into tea lately too. Can't get enough.

    We were supposed to get snow or ice. Nary a drop of anything. I ran out to get ready before everyone else did but no one else was around. I guess they didn't get the memo. And I'm not even sure the kids have had any snow days here this winter.

    The peepee man story is so gross!! Good grief! He doesn't know how to close the rest room door and turn on the light???? LOL.

    Thank you for the giggles! Once I walked into the wrong bathroom at Chick Fil A in Hendersonville.. No one was in there, thank goodness, and it took me a few seconds for it to register that it was a MEN"s bathroom - I felt very confused when it happened. Best wishes to you on your weigh in tomorrow! It sounds like you are eating the right stuff!

    What a morning you've had! Ha ha! We have that same kind of thing here. The door that goes to our stairwell is right across from the men's bathroom. If we come down the stairs, turn the corner to open the door and a man has just entered the bathroom, we can see in there before the door fully closes. However they seem to not be able to wait until the door closes fully! There are at least partitions to shield anything, but I'm always thinking, "Jeez. Can't you wait for 2 seconds for the door to close!" Never had someone leave the door open though. Hope you have a fantastic weekend helping your friend move!

    I am convinced that weather forecasting is the biggest scam in the world!!
