Musings of a Fat Girl

Because I said I would do it, here's a picture of what I looked like yesterday when we were heading out to play in the swimming pool and on the slip and slide that A2 absolutely loved loved loved! The first is the original picture I posted about three weeks ago and the second, of course, is yesterday. As you can see there isn't any change but I can't really complain about that since I've done nothing about it. I've pretty much come to the conclusion that sitting around and wishing the fat to melt away doesn't work. THAT only took about TWO FREAKING YEARS to sink in! Oh, and don't be fooled into thinking there is a difference between these two pictures. The second one was taken from a further distance and only "seems" to be smaller. Click on it, you'll see I'm just as big as I was before vacation.

May as well be this though!

I have tried to eat better the last few nights. Hubs and I have been eating tuna for supper, yeah I know, super yummy. He eats his plain on crackers (ewww, gross) and I eat mine with a little bit of tuna salad mix that comes in a squeeze bottle. I know it adds extra calories but I can't stomach it plain. We've been picking some little cherry tomatoes out of the garden and I've been eating them too, it helps mask the grossness. I should have worked out yesterday but it was the 4th and all, so playing on the slip and slide and going out to watch fireworks kind of beat out hopping on the treadmill and the Blowflex of Doom. I'm embarrassed to admit that my legs were still a little sore from Monday night too.

I'm definitely going to work out today. Matter of fact, I'm not going to wait til tonight to do it. I'm going to enlist the help of A1 to keep an eye on A2 while I do down there here in about an hour. They can play in the sandbox (see post below) while I sweat my booty off. I've really got a lot of stuff to do here in the house but that can all wait. How is it that you can scrub your ass off on your house but let a holiday or the weekend roll around and it looks like a friggin' tornado ran through it just like that? This time last week my house was sparkling yet today, I can barely see the tops of my kitchen counters!! But I digress, an hour tops will have the house looking good as new and maybe even help burn off a few extra calories! Why couldn't fat be the new skinny!! I'd vote for that.
