Big Brother Season 15 Episode 14 – #BB15, #Nominations, #ComcastSux, #Have&HaveNots

comcast-sucksSeventeen days after my Comcast  Xfinity debacle began, (read here and here ) the new DVR stopped working today.

Once again, I have lost everything on the DVR, and I await a visit from the Comcast technician tomorrow morning.  They call this “service.”

Thankfully, the condo development I live in has basic cable for all residents, so I have reworked my television and watch like it is 2003.

My disdain for Comcast grows by the day, I am working on a post that I will share soon where they are accusing me of stealing their equipment and charging me $150 because the COMPUTER says I have equipment that I don’t….. but….. the computer says so!

Let’s see what is going on in the house, and if you aren’t following the boards and feeds you are missing out!  Unfortunately I don’t have pause or DVR, so I am typing fast tonight.

bb15SPOILERS BELOW:

Aaryn wins HOH.  Helen had made a previous deal with Aaryn where she would give her HOH nominees to Helen’s side of the house and those nominees are to be Howard and Spencer.

No one seems happy that Aaryn won HOH.

Helen worries if Aaryn will follow-thru on her end of the deal.

Candice knows about Helen’s deal and she also knows she was not consulted on the plans.

Spencer ask Aaryn point-blank if he is going on the block, she tells him she has to do what the house wants.

All the house guests hide when it is time to see Aaryn’s HOH room.   It was a cute moment and Aaryn almost seemed human.

McCrae and Amanda take a bubble bath, discussing their differences and both say “I love you.”

Spencer goes to Aaryn and attempts to defend himself to keep from being nominated.  Aaryn lets Spencer know she made deals to stay in the house and will follow through on the agreement.

Howard talks to Aaryn about the nominations.  Aaryn tells Howard the truth about the deal with Helen.  Howard tries convincing Aaryn to shake up the house and not nominate who she is being told to nominate, but do what she wants to do.

On a side note, I wish this would have been the Aaryn that played the game in the beginning instead of the white-sheet clad Klan chick!  This Aaryn is more like the one I described in my first impression.

Orange:  Elissa, Aaryn, McCrae and Andy

Green:  Candice, Amanda, GinaMarie, Judd

Candice and Aaryn talk.  Aaryn tells her she doesn’t want to put Howard up but she is being told what to do.   Candice recommends she nominate Amanda and McCrae,  Aaryn tells her Amanda kept her safe.

In the diary room, Aaryn admits that Candice doesn’t exist to her and anything she says goes in one ear and out the other.

Candice reports back to Howard how the conversation went and she understands that the conversation was pointless.  Candice is confident that she will be nominated.

Candice pushes Howard away.

BB15 SPENCER  BB15 HOWARD

Spencer and Howard

Aaryn holds up to her end of the bargain.

Wednesday night we find out who America has nominated for the 3rd seat.  This has already happened in realtime and well, I warned a player didn’t I?

50×50 Challenge – Month One Check-In #50×50

50 x 50You may or may not know, but one month ago I began my 50×50 Challenge. In short, the goal is lose 50 by my 50th or 5 pounds a month for the next 10 months (now 9).

More importantly than just the 50 lbs, I am working to get myself healthier, in my food, exercise etc.

Giving myself a goal of 5 pounds per month is more realistic than saying 50 pounds, therefore I am working in small increments to get there.

Today is the end of my first month, I stated June 28th at 232.4 today one month later 227.4…. EXACTLY 5 pounds.  I didn’t have an ounce to spare.  That may not sound like a lot or enough to most of you, but for me it is a victory.  I am proud of that 5 pounds because it represents a lot of new attitudes, new routines and changed mindset.

This month I have eaten better, I have exercised an average of 4 days a week for at least 45 minutes a day and yesterday and today I actually did some running, not a lot, but it was running.

I have a LONG way to go, but baby steps will eventually add up.

If I am honest I have to admit I was really scared I wasn’t going to make this five but I did.  I feel better, my clothes are fitting better and I am enjoying the process.

Goal for month 2…. another 5 pounds.  August 28th should read 222.4 or less.

Thanks for the encouragement and support!
