Brace Yourself

Why?  Because I made something healthy for dinner last night.

I know, I hope you don’t sh*t yourself out of shock.  I was pretty proud of myself.  First I made Crock Pot Bolognese Sauce from skinnytaste.

And because we were being extra healthy, I baked a spaghetti squash to go with it!


It was the first time I tried baking it whole and that worked pretty well.

After gutting the squash (we each got half), we had some pretty good sized portions.


And after adding the bolognese sauce, it looked incredible.


And tasted amazing.

After gorging ourselves on our healthy dinner, we headed to the local high school for a basketball game.  In order to feel like I was working out, I did some serious reading:


I mostly just looked at the pictures so the only thing I learned was that my muscle to fat ratio is way f*cked up…way too much fat and probably no muscle.  Sad.

While I imagined myself with tighter thighs, G ate more food.


G was excited about the game because of the team we were playing.  When we went to this game last year, G got to have his picture taken with this guy:


That’s Michelle Obama’s brother, Craig Robinson.   He coaches the men’s basketball team at Oregon State and his daughter plays on the high school team over there.  I did not want to take that picture.  G stalked Craig all night and it was getting so bad, I thought Craig was going to call Obama.  Fortunately, we didn’t get arrested and the Secret Service didn’t show up to last night’s game either.

  1. How cool that you guys got to meet her brother!

    At least you can get G to eat healthy food like that. It is definitely a struggle getting the boyfriend to eat right…I have to sneak the healthy stuff in!

    Fabulous sounding dinner – I’ve never tried subbing spag squash for real spaghetti but it looks delicious! And so so so cool you guys got to meet Obama’s bro in law – he looks just like Michelle! Good for G for stalking him!

  6. G needs to use his stalking capabilities to stalk his way right into the White House to meet the Obama’s. Stalking is legal, no?
