Okay…as we all know, I am trying to lose weight. My brother has bet me that I can’t get down to 195 pounds before our BIG BIRTHDAY BASH on June 28th. The deal is this…if I get trimmed down to fightin’ weight, he’ll quit smoking. I know what he does to his body really isn’t my concern…but it is. I hate that my brother smokes! I think smoking is quite possibly the worst thing you can do to yourself. Seems strange to me that you would pay money to kill yourself…but that’s just MY opinion, and you are welcome to argue it all you want.
So…I am trying to lose this weight. I started out at 202 the last time I weighed myself (which was a few weeks ago). Since Monday, all I’ve mostly eaten is fruits, salads and nuts. Yesterday, I had a banana, a cup of coffee and a small bowl of cereal after my spinning class in the morning. Then for lunch I had a fat-free t.v. dinner thingee and water that left me feeling highly unsatisfied. But it’s the dinners that I’m most proud of! I’ve stopped off at the grocery every day this week and gotten a salad and fruit to take to work! I buy that and some kind of snack (yesterday was almonds, the day before yogurt covered pretzels). I mean, I’m at work for 10 hours! So I snack on the nuts and stuff and then have the salad for dinner around 5pm. Not bad! That and a bottle of water have been tiding me over nicely!
So I’m on my way! Keep eating the rabbit food and going to the gym and I should be able to drop 7 pounds in 3 weeks…right? Anybody know anything about this kind of stuff? ‘Cause I sure don’t. Never done a diet or really worked out for too long a period of time…so I hope I’m doing this right. I hate the idea of counting calories, but I figure as long as I’m not starving myself, I should be all good. And then Frank can stop smoking and take that extra $100 a month (or whatever he’s blowing on cancer sticks these days) and go buy his son a new set of golf clubs. From what I’ve seen…the kid will use ’em! Or…he can buy me dinner! 🙂
