Just a Sliver

I am a sliveraholic.  Whether it is brownies, bread, donuts, cookies or cake I devour at least 4 serving sizes just from the slivers that I cut off.

For some reason I think that by cutting and munching on 4 hundred small pieces of the above mentioned baked goods it does not equal 1 normal sized piece and therefore it is good for me and I am not taking in absurd amounts of sugar:)  Yes, I know that was a very well constructed sentence.   I never make grammar errors on the blog.

I was caught red-handed....or I guess orange-handed due to not washing off all of the self tanner on my palms.

Dinner tonight was with our besties Allison and Alex (my running coach and running idol).

IMG_4690.JPG

We brought over chicken tacos, black beans and mexican rice.  I have lately been obsessed with sour cream........it makes the taco.  We did forget the guacamole.  I learned my lesson and will never do that again, you have my word.

And since I only had 12 slivers (1/4 of the pan) of brownie I had to finish the night off with a whole one and some vanilla bean ice cream.

Back to work today......ps did you know that hulu has a time limit on how much you can watch at one time.  I am that cool person that over spring break received the message, "you've sure been watching for a long time, would you like a break?"  I guess I can't spend everyday running ridiculous distances, watching hours of chopped on hulu and going on a date with my mom. Back to real life.

Speed work Monday......800 meter yasso's after school.  Bring it on track workout.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget to e-mail me @ janaenicole_426@hotmail.com a race photo or awesome post run/workout photo for me to LINK you on a post to help motivate each other to get out there and run our little hearts out!!!  And for bragging rights:)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Are you a sliveraholic?  Do you keep cutting off little pieces until next thing you know it and the pan is empty?

-Guilty as charged.

Less than 12 hours until we know who Brad chooses on the Bachelorette!! Are you team Emily or team Chantel?

-Team Emily.

Do you watch Hulu?

-Religiously.  Remember we are on a teacher's salary and Billy is in school........cable is not an option.

I am def a sliveraholic...I once ate 3/4 a pumpkin loaf by myself because of this.
I am also on team Emily!
I watch hulu sometimes, but my internet is slow so it freezes up a lot!!

Can't wait to hear about your track workout! Have a great day!

Yes I am a sliverholic.

I watch Hulu all the time because we don't have cable. :)

...and obviously, cable is not an option for us either. we love hulu and netflix.

Oh yes, slivers don't count do they? Until you have no more knives in the knife drawer...

Don't do the Bachelor, sorry

Yes to hulu- I watch glee on it :)

I am a sliverer too :), until it is time to eat a real serving of course. I am team Emily too, love that girl! Hope you have a great speed workout!

I don't do slivers, I just go for it. :)

We are seriously considering cancelling our cable because it's so crazy expensive. We think we could live with hulu and netflix...we'll see after this month's bill.

Your dinner makes me want to make mexican for dinner tonight!

I think slivers taste better!

I'm absolutely a sliver-a-holic! :) I will sliver the whole pan away on some baked goods! :) Have fun on the track today!!

I like them both. However, I am thinking Brad will pick team Chantel over the already made family...but then of course there's the Hendricks money...

 
At March 14, 2011 at 8:11 AM , Blogger Briana said...

I am definitely 'Team Emily' but I think he picks Chantal and then Emily will be the next Bachelorette!!

Can't WAIT to watch it!

No hulu for me. I DVR everything, though!

I almost forgot the Bachelor finale is tonight - wahoo!! Good luck with your track work today! I know you'll be super speedy. Billy and I watch hulu all the time - he has some way to hook his laptop up to our TV and we watch old episodes of all of our favorite shows! Happy Monday, my love!

Emily all the WAY!!!

Yes, I am a sliveraholic... Anything chocolate has my name on it.

I DVR all my favorite shows. I have no idea when they're actually on TV!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 8:23 AM , Blogger Melissa said...

Since your not eating it all at the same time, it doesn't count, right?!

And I too have gotten the message from hulu, while I was looking for a job. It didn't help my self-esteem...haha!

Hi. My name is BHF, and I am a sliverholic.

I have slivers before and after breakfast (since, as you rightly wrote, breakfast isn't a dessert meal). And basically, whenever the kids aren't going to catch me I sneak another.

 
At March 14, 2011 at 8:41 AM , Blogger Running Down a Dream said...

I am also a sliverholic! I can't keep sweets in our apartment because I will eat them all!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 8:54 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

Sorry your break is over!! Hopefully you had a good week off!!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:00 AM , Blogger Elizabeth Cheek said...

You are crazy. I love slivers and that is exactly what we ate last night except we had guac and used plain high protein yogurt instead of sour cream. It tastes exactly the same but is loaded w protein. My beans were homemade, refried. . We eat lots of beans in AR. Love to you!!!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:03 AM , Blogger Average A said...

No, I just go for the whole cookie/donut, but I will cut cookie/donut #2 I half. Is that a sliver? :)

Emily!

I don't have a TV so I watch The Bachelor on Hulu. Ughhhh I won't see the finale until it's posted tomorrow!!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:09 AM , Blogger Sabrina said...

Team Emily all the way!

I am also guilty as charged, slivers all the way baby!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:10 AM , OpenID evamadera said...

I am so bad at cutting off slivers! So bad that since I've given up sweets for Lent I will not let myself make brownies for anyone else. I don't think I have enough willpower to keep it away from my mouth. :D

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:14 AM , Blogger Samantha @ Mama Notes said...

yep, love Hulu. We are on a teachers salary too- no cable. :) I am SO excited for teh Bachelorette finale tonight but can’t watch it because of the no cable issue!!! Ah, I have to wait until tomorrow and catch it on Hulu, which means I have to stay off Facebook and twitter tonight so I don’t see any spoilers. I might die.

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:17 AM , Blogger Joanna said...

Haha! I'm a sliverholic and I didn't even know it. If you cut smaller pieces, it's smaller calories right? I'm sticking to that and I don't care if I'm wrong.

I'm not a Bachelor fan :(. Maybe it's because my friend's hubby works on the show and tells us how CRAY CRAY these people are. haha

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:22 AM , Blogger Kate said...

Just a sliver... If I had a penny for every time I said that (and then proceeded to eat half the cake)...I would be RICH.

We also do not have cable (or a TV for that matter) so Hulu it is! I am obsessed. Have you watched Parks & Recreation? Hilarious.

 
At March 14, 2011 at 9:50 AM , Blogger trisha*n said...

I don't have tv either, therefore hulu is a lifesaver! My mom's favorite phrase is "a french woman's taste" because supposedly they have small portions. that is thrown out the window when we have 5 french woman's tastes!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 10:09 AM , Blogger Emily said...

slivers don't count. (typed with my right hand as i consume my 12th brownie sliver of the day with my left)

Team Emily. All the way. Is anyone not on Team Emily?

Hulu is a healthy addiction. Fact. (As is frozen yogurt and Mexican food)

I'm catching up on posts and I'm obsessed with Tangeled, too! I'm so happy you went to see it again. Totally love it and can't wait for it to come out on dvd!!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 10:19 AM , Blogger Jessica Joy Daly said...

Sliverholic. HAHAH. I didn't know I had a condition. But I am guilty as charged.

Please Emily for the sake of her heart not getting crushed, but I am feeling like he is going to pick Chantel, because they NEVER pick the right one!

We haven't watched Hulu for awhile but we did watch all six seasons of Lost on it! I love it!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 10:27 AM , Blogger giraffy said...

I'm totally a sliver-stealer. And edges, of anything, too. I have a theory, that slivers, edges, and anything you grab and eat while walking by have zero calories!

I don't watch the Bachelor.. I watched the season with Andrew Firestone but that was it :(

I. LOVE. HULU!! I'm totally addicted to Netflix streaming and NatGeo documentaries, though.. no cable here either!

 
At March 14, 2011 at 10:29 AM , Blogger Rachelle Wardle said...

mmmm I have been eating mexican food for like the past 14 days straight....Me and my crazy weird food kicks. I totally eat slivers all day and then still have an extra large peice with everyone else.

I am obsessed with cable and to illiterate to understand hulu. Plus I'm not sure Hulu would feed my obsessive basketball obsession.

Have a fabulous day!!

No Hulu, but love Netflix.

I'm horrible with the slivers- rice krispy treats are my weakness. Not only do I attempt justification with the sliver size, but the "rice krispies aren't bad for you" rationale that completely neglects the presence of butter and marshamallows.

 
At March 14, 2011 at 10:52 AM , Anonymous Kate (What Kate is Cooking) said...

I am definitely a sliverholic! I start off with one piece, and then go back for 'one more bite'- which turns into the whole thing over the day :)

ah ha, at first I thought that said silver not sliver. I was all confused. DUH! I think this time change has me loopy!
I am a sliver queen too! I like 3 slivers of everything please! hehe.
Have a great track workout and YEA FOR BACHELOR!!!

You're too funny. I too am guilty of the sliver addication to desserts. In my family a sliver is known as the "Brittany piece" because I never fail to eat 8 million transparent pieces of cake in place of one large piece.

AHAHAHHA im so the opposite of a sliveraholic. i take HUGE portions all at once.. i like to know i got a lot left on my plate :D they dnt have hulu avaiable in the UK... it only works in america.. BOO!

I love slivers because they totally don't count! I'll also do the same thing with cookies and break off pieces.
I love hulu, but I had no idea they cut you off! I used to go over my pandora account all the time, but now, I've discovered Grooveshark for music.

SLIVERS HAVE NO CALORIES! :)

I know this because I'm the sliver queen. Or maybe you're the queen, and I'll be the princess. ;)

I love hulu! and I'm for sure Team Emily. I mean, seriously, who can be Team Shantal?

sometimes hulu....and sometimes a sliver person :) depends on the baked good!!

Slivers are calorie free!!! Duh! Lol. I am the worst with sneaking little tastes of sweets. :)

We're lucky enough to have cable included in our rent. (And internet too!) So we don't watch hulu. I do sometimes catch up on Glee and vampire diaries online though.

Good luck with the yassos... my legs are pretty sore, i forgot my foam roller at home, and really wished i had it yesterday after my 15 miler. :/

Sounds like you had a nice evening with friends! :)

Yasso 800's! Do you like them? Are they helping? Would you recommend them? I met Yasso this weekend (HE CAME TO RUN WITH OUR RUNNING CLUB) and I think I am in love - he is such an inspiration!! OH MY GOSH!!!!! You should have been there, Janae!!!!! I just finished his book and was reading about the 800's and want to give them a try. Read his book if you haven't!

Sliveraholic and a SPOONFULAHOLIC.


Because we all know if it's just a spoonful, it doesn't count. Especially if you eat it standing up at the counter, with the fridge/freezer door still open.

It was so fun to see you yesterday! Afterwards I felt creepy, because I literally ended the conversation with the parting words "see you on your blog!"

Hah YES! I always take a half a cookie or little pieces of things, but then always go back for the rest eventually :)

 
At March 14, 2011 at 12:27 PM , Blogger Savannah said...

This made me smile so much. My grandma (who has passed away) always ate silvers around the edges of her cakes and brownies, and would bring the pan to family gatherings with a few little pieces missing around the edge. I hadn't thought about that in a long time - thank you for sharing and bringing back such a happy memory.

Yes I am totally a sliveraholic! Same reason why I love mini cookies, brownies, and munchkins - you can eat lots and they don't really count ;)

I've never watched anything on hulu bc my computer at home is still from my freshman year at college...aka super old and slow. We recently got full cable with everything so I'm an On Demand stalker of all my favorite shows!

I've never watched Hulu, but I'm gonna try it, and I'll probably be hooked.
I can't wait to hear how your speedwork goes. I love reading about your running, so motivating!!

I totally do slivers or spoonfuls, or whatever "bite-sized" portions there are possible. Sometimes all I need is that little fix. Although most of the time a big honkin' piece is really what I'm going for.

Do you have a recipe for those tacos?? They look absolutely scrumptious!

It was so great meeting with you on Saturday! You are a doll and I love ya!
I need to make these chicken tacos. They just look too good! And I can't believe you forgot the quac! That's just not like you!

Oh slivers, how I love you! I maintain the calories from slivers and samples don't count.

Sour cream is pretty much the best condiment on the planet. I love it, especially on egg based stuff.

We use Hulu Plus and Netflix instead of cable, so I spend a lot of time on hulu.

 
At March 14, 2011 at 6:28 PM , Blogger Alyssa said...

I am a huge sliverholic and I also refuse to bake unless I get to lick the entire bowl. Like sometimes I'll sit at the table with the bowl, a spoon, and a glass of milk. I don't watch the bachelor, I used to be super into Hulu but now I stick with TV - we are on two teacher salaries so we are living large!

Bahahaha I love the totally maniacal look on your face with that pan of brownies. I'm a notorious sliver-er! On Christmas night, following a MASSIVE day of feasting, I managed to eat an entire family-sized Christmas cake all on my own... purely by the little tiny pieces I kept 'tasting'.

Same goes for tubs of ice cream, bars of chocolate, bags of candy, chips and boxes of cereal. They all disappear in a flash and I have no idea where they went because 'I JUST TRIED A LITTLE, I SWEAR!' hahaha

You are a woman after my own heart, Janae :p we totally need to get some kind of international candy swap happening!!
