The problem is that I don’t look too bad with my clothes on, and, as I try not to look at myself naked (that’s just me) I kind of forget to pay attention. But suddenly, well over the past year or two, (that’s suddenly in big girl years), i’m getting a bit (o.k. a lot) flabby which doesn’t at all fit in with the super beautiful, classy, omg I wish I were her, image I’m going for.
I eat well – probably too well, but, and here’s the rub, I do not exercise. I hate exercise. I would rather have a root canal than exercise – o.k. maybe not. Sometimes I’m so still that, if you didn’t know any better, you might even think I’m dead – except my mouth moves a lot. I could easily get a part as a dead person in a movie or a stage play, except I don’t do well under stress, and sometimes I have to scratch something.
So, I have told the kids that they can’t get married until I’ve lost 25lbs. In fact, if they want to run away and just come back married that would be fine by me. In fact, why bother getting married at all – that was so ten years ago …
But, then I realised that that would be all about me, and at some point I have to give in to the fact that the kids are real people after all and not just some little people that hang around me all day.
So going back to the, what are you going to do, part of the problem. If you read my earlier post, you’ll see that I have a cunning plan. A wannado list. Which is to be the answer to everything. In fact the whole reason I started this blog in the first place was to be accountable to myself. If I blogged about it, I would do it – right? Well, first up, I haven’t done anything on my list – yet. Except I have been working on improving my jewelry and I did manage to get 100 peeps on face book, which isn’t really a good wannado but i’m going to count it anyway – oh, and I did clean the bathroom that one time.
Today’s post is to keep me accountable. I’m not going to say I’m failing at my wannado’s, but, that I seem to be motivationally challenged at the moment. I will say this, however, every day I wake up is a day closer to one of those kids getting married. I mean at 19, 21 and 22 now, how much longer do I have? Hopefully long enough to lose 25lbs.
So, the wannado list is back on, especially the 25lbs bit.
And here is what I’m working on today.
