How many french fries do you have to eat to qualify as a serving of vegetables???

Oops I Did It Again!

To quote Brittany Spears, "Oops I Did it Again"! That is, I forgot to floss yet again. I drank an entire bottle of water before I went to bed causing me to go to the bathroom all night due to a shrunken and pressed-upon bladder. Then I shoved a huge bowl of fruit down my throat to fulfill all my points. Then I forgot to floss. I have issues!

Krispy Kreme Dreams

In my normal pre-challenge life Krispie Kremes were a treat- one that I indulged in every once in a while. Not THAT often. I will say I have eaten more Krispie Kremes in the past few weeks of this challenge than in the past several years of my life. I don't know why but I feel a magnetic pull towards them when I am in the grocery store on Saturday night, planning my Sunday fix. So in the past couple weeks I have just bought a half dozen on those Saturday sweet shopping sprees. But as I walked into Walmart on this particular Saturday the Griffin Bears football team was selling a box of a dozen. There's a young man in the ward there on the team, begging me to buy the dozen. UGH! What am I to do? I really only NEED six...not 12. But then again, I can just throw away the ones I don't eat. Waste all in the name of support for my alma mater. So I bought them. I petitioned for Saturday to be a free day because of it being fast Sunday on our regular free day. I gotta have a full day of sweets. I won't say how many my family ate and how many I ate because it's really quite embarrassing. I will say there were two left on Sunday. It was NOT a free day. I had had quite my fill the night before, eating Krispie Kremes until 11pm. We are laying down for our usual Sunday afternoon naps and I am awakened by Cooper, whom we had been watching for the weekend while Em and Jake went to TN for their anniversary. I tried to smother the sound of his cries by putting the pillow over me ears. He hadn't been sleeping long enough. Only an HOUR!!! COOPER- GO BACK TO SLEEP! So I was in and out of consciousness and all I remember was this; smelling and tasting Krispie Kremes. They were melting in my mouth. I had been fasting all day. This really could be considered a type of torture. It wakes me up out of my sleep. All I can think of is Krispie Kremes. There were two left. Should I lose a point? I started thinking about the fact that I am not going to win (Jordan has a perfect score). Then for some reason I started thinking about the monetary value I would put on some Krispie Kremes at that very moment. I decided that I would pay $25 for some. So I hurriedly got up and downed the last two. I was defenseless. After dreaming about them what was I supposed to do. Hey, maybe I was sleep eating/walking. Does that mean I still have to lose a point? I had no control! :)

Updated Google Doc

FYI...We've updated the google doc so you can all go back and enter your points for the last week.  Also, we added a column for temple attendance in week 5, plus a tab for week 6, which starts this Tuesday.

The top 5 reasons that Jordan should win!

Number 5- He wakes up every morning at 5:45am to workout at the gym.
Number 4 - Last night, at 10:30pm, he was eating carrots in bed while reading his scriptures.
Number 3 - He has lost about 5 lbs.
Number 2 - He is really cute.
And the Number 1 reason - I missed a point two days in a row because I was very, very sick with the flu. I did not have the energy to exercise. It was painful enough eating veggies. By Jordan winning that means that I win too - since we are a team (right honey)!

Can You Believe It?

Claire came up to me the day after I forgot to floss and admitted that she did the same thing! She was so elated the day earlier that I had missed a point and then she went and did the same thing. Well, the really, really, really stupid thing is--then I did it AGAIN the next day! AAAAAAHHH! If I lose this over forgetting to floss my teeth twice I will be so, so angry! I even came home just before midnight from the new Batman movie and ate another orange because I needed another fruit serving. Then I thought, now all I have to do it floss. Somewhere between walking from the kitchen to my bedroom I forgot. I'm going to blame it on being pregnant. That's always a good excuse!

Oh, but it's so much more than just a point...

Missing a day of flossing can cost so much more than just ONE point. Jake, thanks for sending this picture of Emily's teeth since her missed day of flossing. Look and learn, people. -- Jessica (with Dave's help)  :)
