Let's play catch up.

I have really been off my blogging game lately. I have next to no time to read anything or write anything. Then that whole flu thing didn't help.

So this is like my totally jumbled together... potpourri if you will... blog.

Finally recovered from the flu. Totally passed it on to at least one friend. Hopefully no one else gets it. It did mess up my whole workout schedule. I was only able to life 3 times this week. I usually get 5 days of gym time.

On Friday I was at the gym trying to bust out a workout. This woman kept looking at me. I usually get annoyed by people and their random stares. (What can I say, I'm not very friendly.) I did recognize this lady though. I know I've talked to her before. She did approach me and told me that I looked great. She remembered me from about a year ago. I thanked her and all that business. I told her how much weight I had lost and her face totally contorted into this surprise/shock/awe/bewilderment (take you choice of expression) and she said, "You have totally refigured your body!" I really just had to laugh. I guess I have refigured my body. I love random compliments.

Well, then Saturday hit. I had a rough day. Hell, I've had a rough few weeks. I've been trying to figure out some feelings and emotional crap and it pretty much blew up in my face. This is why I typically like to stay emotionless. It works better. Anyway, decided to do something drastic.....drastic for me anyway. I decided to get drunk. I totally threw the meal plan into the wind and drank 4 beers. I'm not even lying, I was drunk. I don't drink anymore and it doesn't take much. It was totally worth it. Totally, totally worth it. I felt fa-freakin-tastic when I woke up today. I was worried about weighing myself today though, and I totally own up to my 4 beer bender. I don't often do anything like that these days.

At the gym this morning I did have to weigh myself. I was actually on the phone with Janelle when I weighed in. I was hoping to hit the official 120 pound mark, but I totally hit 122 pounds lost. I nearly crapped my pants. I told Janelle that I was going to start walking up to people and making them guess how much weight I've lost and then yell, "122 pounds" right in their faces. I did get in a good workout today and I'm back on meal plan track. Getting closer to this elusive goal weight.


  1. Great Job!!! I would want to yell in people's faces too, so I think you should totally do it.

  2. I love the idea of just sneaking up on people and insisting that they guess how much weight you've lost, only to proclaim it loudly as they think. I'm totally going to bust out laughing randomly throughout the day imagining myself doing the same thing, thanks for adding some laughter to my work day. :)

  3. Wonderful news on the loss!! Sometimes I want to shout it out myself.. only I hate attention and dislike people :)

  4. Congratulations. 122 pounds is briliant!

  5. WOW! You are doing SO amazing! :)

  6. I've just stumbled across your blog and i'm so happy i have!
    I started mine at the beginning of this year and can only wish for success like yours!! well done!
