Hello from Sunday night. I finally tore myself away from Paper Mario to run up here and get a few things done before I go to bed. Except it's hard to get a few things done when you can hear your husband playing Paper Mario downstairs and you are
sort of insanely jealous.
(SERIOUSLY. You Wii owners must try this game. I suggest making sure you have nothing scheduled for the next month or two.)
I told someone I would spend my entire Monday doing a certain project. (Oooh, that sounds so vague. Like I am a Secret Agent! Or a Political Operative!) Anyway. I do believe I used the word "devote". As in "devote my entire Monday." So yeah. This is me getting the obligatory Monday Blog Post out of the way.
Except: so not obligatory! I am so excited about you Weight Lossers! How cool are we? I may have bragged a bit about us in real life. As promised, here is The Progress for the weekend:
- I did awesome
- SO AWESOME
- Until we had my family over Saturday morning for brunch
- Where I still did awesome
- Until it was time to serve the cake
- (Cake is TOTALLY brunch food)
- (And we ordered it special)
- (BAVARIAN CREAM FROSTING, PEOPLE.)
- Have eaten nothing but broth and cucumbers today to make up for it.
- (I must be kidding.)
- There is LEFTOVER CAKE.
Suffice to say that I have not weighed myself, for fear of seeing that I have GAINED a pound. Thereby shooting myself up to a FIVE POUND weight loss goal instead of an infinitely easier FOUR POUND GOAL.
But tomorrow? So back to business.
I was trying to figure out how to connect with the other Weight Lossers, so we could see how everyone is doing and who is doing great and who needs a good kick in the chubby shin. Have not figured that out yet, because- SIGH- I am not a Computer Whiz. So if you're up for it, let us know how you're doing in the comments! At least that way I'll know to send a shin kicking email. (Also, how cool are you guys! It appears nothing brings out the lurkers like births and guilt-trippy posts about weight.)
Dude, this post is about as substantive as angel food cake. (I hate angel food cake. Why eat cake that tastes and feels like styrofoam? Have you not heard of DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE? Which is SO MUCH BETTER? Are you now wanting to kick MY shins for bringing up CAKE? AGAIN?)
I better go to bed so I can function tomorrow. I did say I would do actual work. That would pay me actual money. It'd be nice if I could remember how to type in the morning. Of course, I don't plan to ignore the internet all day. Goodness no. I'll need something to do when my brain hits the CANNOT POSSIBLY CONTINUE wall and I've got weeks-old comments to respond to and bargains to find online and, as always, blogs to read. I hope you'll have something fantabulous for me to read.
P.S. It is January 6, official Christmas quitting time, and my decorations are STILL UP! Who wants to come over and help me box up 8 zillion ornaments? Anyone? I've got cake!
