Impaired Judgment

Really wishing I hadn't just eaten TWO Dunkin' Donuts coffee rolls (and large iced coffee) less than hour before having to put on that dress.

The Big One

After a short hypothesis that Canine should get married and have puppies because he came back from his new groomer looking like a "girl poodle"...

Kid went on to ask this terrifying question:

"Mom why do you have to be married to have kids?"

Ever truthful and concise (as is my parenting style) I responded "You don't" hoping that that surprising revelation would keep her from asking the REALLY BIG QUESTION.

"You don't have to be married to have kids... lets see... who do we know that has kids but isn't married?" I continued.

Surprisingly we don't really know anyone so that didn't pan out quite like I would have liked.

"Helena" Kid offered.

Helena is 5... "no Helena doesn't have kids... and her mom is married... remember her dad is David?" I remind her.

"Well maybe that's her stepdad." Kid offered... slightly more worldly since starting Kindergarten.

"No that's her regular dad. Well, either way, you don't have to be married but only mom's can grow babies in their tummies... men tummies can't grow a baby, they are made differently" I clarify hoping that she doesn't ask me how they got in there in the first place.

"Well... except God. He made the first people remember? Adam & Eve? He made them out of dirt." Kid interrupts.

"Oh... yeah... except for God."

Mr F... I Honor You

Mr F really "stepped to plate" (as Sandra Bullock once said) this morning.

It's not often that I take the time to acknowledge when Mr F isn't wronging me... well this morning, Mr F, you did good.

Aw Yeah:

Well Well Well... What Do You Know?

While making my blog rounds I saw that Kiki had recently taken an online personality test. Ever since having Tickle confirm/reaffirm my genius level IQ I've been a bit fond of taking these highly accurate online tests.... so I couldn't resist this little personality number and quickly followed Kiki's lead.


"Your personality type:

Popular and sensitive, with outstanding people skills. Externally focused, with real concern for how others think and feel. Usually dislike being alone. They see everything from the human angle and dislike impersonal analysis. Very effective at managing people issues and leading group discussions. Interested in serving others and probably place the needs of others over their own needs.

Careers that could fit you includes:

Teachers, consultants, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, clergy, sales representatives, human resources, managers, events coordinators, politicians, diplomats, writers, actors, designers, homemakers, musicians, religious workers."

This Week The Plan

Ohbekaybe, last week was both the best of times and the worst of times. I nearly died of the stomach flu... and finally got down to the bottom of my maintenance range. Unfortunately I was so wiped out that I couldn't workout all week. Then my mom came to town and we went out to eat a LOT. So... I think you know where I'm going with this... in the end I weigh exactly what I weighed at the start of last week. Hmm. New freaking week... same freaking story. The only difference is that now I've had a taste of the glory (aka looking completely badass in my jeans again) and I want it back with a fierceness. Maybe this week I can finally commit to taking this thing 100%.

Onto the plan:


Monday - Cornflake Crusted Tilapia w/ Asparagus

Tuesday - Brown Sugar & Ginger Salmon, Veggie Stirfry, Rice

Wednesday - Pork Tenderloin, Green Beans, Smashed Potatoes

Thursday - Saturday in Charleston

Sunday - Tomato & Meatball Soup

Diet & Exercise:
I think you can see that this week I might have some obstacles.... but I really intend to keep it in line this week. This has been my stumbling block this whole past month and a half. So I've got some new rules: #1 NO FREAKING SODA. Okay I guess that is one rule not some rules. I don't have a lot of time to workout this week but I am going to just max it out the best I can... I'll do 60 minutes Monday - Wednesday and again on Sunday night. After watching the Oprah with Gwyneth I've really had to think about how little time I'm exercising and how badly I want to lower my body fat back down. Getting sick was a reminder that 2 or 3 pounds on me is actually a significant difference... nearly an entire dress size... and that I'm much happier and more confident a few pounds lighter. So I need to step it up.
