my stupidity, part 3

i wish these posts would stop. really i do. yesterday i waited until it stopped raining to bring my garbage can up from the street. i wore my flip flops out and kept them on when i went back to the kitchen to get some trash. i forgot that water on the ground makes them wet, and as i’m chugging along and step on the linoleum i slip and bend my toe back. a toe on the same foot i sprained. it hurt. a lot. this morning it was swollen and the bruising had spread all the way to my foot. i will spare you by not posting a picture. joe had fun poking it and saying “can ya feel that!?” boys. *shakes head* they’re just big children.

weight loss woes

i’ve decided i want to lose weight. i’d really like to lose at least 15 pounds. so i’ve been watching what i eat and doing at least 45 minutes of exercising every day. and what’s happened? i’ve been gaining weight. so now i’m frustrated. i don’t understand why that’s happening. joe says i’ll gain muscle weight but lose sizes, which hasn’t seemed to have happened either. can anyone shed some light on this for me?

pull the plug?

i’ve been following the terri schiavo case lately. it’s very interesting to me. for once, i’m not leaning one way or the other. on one hand, terri’s husband says his wife told him she never wanted to be kept alive on a feeding tube. on the other hand, starvation is a horrible way to die. and terri’s husband already has a fiance, with whom he has two children. no wonder he wants his wife to die. what really bothered me was cnn’s report that when the doctors removed terri’s feeding tube “her husband was by her side.” in the words of joe, what a tool. so, needless to say, i’m quite interested to see how this end up when the judge decides to make his ruling.

thin mints update

so i just told joe about my thin mints post. he says i’m a jerk and he will take my thin mints back. let him just try…:)

damn cookies

i have decided i want to lose at least 15 pounds, even though i have no willpower whatsoever. joe does not think i need to lose weight. joe proceeded to buy me a box of thin mint cookies (my absolute favorite!) from the girl scouts. so while i am trying to eat well, i also am getting in my daily dose of thin mints. sigh. i think it’s a sign. i’m not supposed to diet! hehe.
