Weigh in Wednedsay...on Thursday

So I forgot to post my Weigh in Wednesday yesterday- and I am afraid that this post isn't as inspiring as I would have hoped. I am down a pound- which is nice but I haven't worked out much this week. I have only walked about 5.5 miles total- which I suppose is better than nothing, and I did my 10 minute arm weights routine twice. I have been eating very well- last night I made a miso-glazed salmon that big guy actually liked! Wow - a healthy meal that he actually liked! Unbelievable! I have been having Kashi for breakfast, organic crackers and apples for snacks and organic soup(250 cals for 2 servings) and an apple for lunch and healthy dinners- with rice noodles, broccoli and fish. We are trying to save money at the moment, so I have been pretty low budget this week- inventing meals out a a meager cupboard- but they haven't been too bad! I even made some foccacia bread that turned out very well- not the healthiest choice- but one does need to indulge from time to time. Another trick I discovered was a bowl of frozen raspberries subsituted quite nicely for dessert (rather than sorbet) and provided some comforting hand to mouth mindless eating during movie watching--without the guilt!

J. Crew Snafu...

Usually I defer to the genius that is J. Crew, but in this instance I simply don't understand what is going on with these pants!?! They are awful...I am not sure what would possess someone to design, create, or purchase these l'il monsters. Does anyone like these? Does anyone own these? Can you send a picture of your self in them? If I am wrong and these are somehow a workable clothing item- I will be the first to admit it- but as of this moment I just don't get it!!!

I suppose one terrible item in the midst of the brilliance that is their Navy and white theme is 110% forgivable, but I am always so surprised to see stuff that doesn't seem to fit.

In any event, I wanted to share and get some of your feedback.
