You would be proud of me. I went to Cheesecake Factory, sat in the parking lot for a couple of minutes, then left. It's called will power people, and I used a little bit of it tonight. It was hard, but I even managed to leave without going to Starbucks too. Just because I went earlier today wouldn't have kept me from going again. It was that will power thing kicking in. It was just after 9 pm, but I had no urge to go home, so I went to HEB instead of dinner. I love just walking around that store. It's in kind of a posh part of town, so they have a lot of organic and specialty foods. I spent about 20 minutes wandering aimlessly down each aisle only to get some dried aprocot chips. They're pretty good, but very pricey. This is The Woodlands; I suppose I should know better.
So tomorrow's another day I will attempt to avoid going to CF. I have food at home...I don't NEED to go there. I'll say this in my head as I pull into their parking lot. I don't think the will power's going to last that long. At least I'm not getting the $14.99 Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp (which by the way is to DIE for), I'm getting the half-that-price salad. Mmmm....spinach.

That's right people, I'm one of "them". I wear skirts and heels and get all excited about the new lipstick colors coming out. I am a Mary Kay beauty consultant. I carry skin care surveys in my purse, and I'm not afraid to use 'em! This is by far the coolest thing I've ever done. I don't care if you think I'm wierd or dorky. I'm about to break my social retard bubble. This is big for me. I can actually get on the phone and call people I don't know! I think that deserves a lip gloss. Their lip gloss is kick ass!
Check out my site! Hey, and if you wanted to buy something, I'd be okay with that! :o)

I've been getting very creative with my food lately, but it's almost always worth it. I experimented with these rice crispy treats, but instead of marshmellow I used peanut butter. These didn't turn out as expected, so they stayed in the fridge for the party we had tonight. And of course I never have a party without my frog's eye salad...but of course I had to veganize it. It actually turned out really good, but I forgot it was in the fridge and it barely got eaten! Oh well...more for me! But I think my masterpiece of the night was the chocolate cake. I had never made a cake from scratch before. I always thought they seemed kind of dry, but this one was so yummy, and so not dry! I hadn't had chocolate since starting my vegan trek, so this was a real treat for me. I think it was a pretty big hit. Should I tell them it had tofu in it? Nah. I had one small piece and thought I might actually vomit from being so happy. Okay, mabe it was the chocolate overload. And I am such a looser for not taking a picture of it! Well crap, I'll just have to make another one, considering the last one is all gone. I've really got to start taking pictures of these masterpieces.

I went to the Cheesecake Factory AGAIN today. I'm officially addicted to that silly salad! And what's worse is that I went BY MYSELF. I wasn't a sad little girl and requested a table for one, though. I got it to go. I have to say it wasn't as great as eating it in the restaurant...note to self, To-Go means Go With Less. But it didn't matter much; I still licked the plate clean. I'll have to request that table for one next time and eat it in house. Hey, I've done it before. The key is to take something with you to do, like make a grocery list or read a book...that way you don't look like a wierdo. Wierdo or not, I'm sure I WILL be making another trip soon.

The journey to being a skinny bitch is a slow one, but I'm determined to do it. Going out to eat is an adventure I'd like to avoid at all costs...unless it's Cheesecake Factory. I'm a little ashamed to admit I went there on Friday AND Saturday. I found a salad that makes me cry it's so good. I never thought I'd say that about a bunch of leafy greens, but my food choices have been a bit limited lately. If you go there you need to get it...of course, without cheese. I think it's called the French Country Salad. It's one of their "small" salads. Don't let that fool you...it's still freakin huge!...for a "small" salad.
I was planning on working out today, but after shampooing my living room carpet, I'm going to go ahead and count that. I hope I can lift my arms tomorrow. At least my carpet looks good!
