After last week’s mountain of crap came tumbling down on me (TOM, bad cold, Easter candy), I just could not bear to see the number on the scale this week, so I used my Golden Ticket No Weigh In Pass at my WW meeting. For those of you who asked (Susie) and those of you who don’t know, a NWIP is just like it sounds. You get to go to the meeting without weighing in. You can only use one pass per month, but sometimes it is really helpful, especially when seeing a gain might discourage you and send you head first into a vat of M&Ms. So I am just going to pretend that I am maintaining my loss of 3 pounds last week and move forward from there.
This was a recent conversation betwixt DH and me:
Me: I am so tired lately. I think I need to start going to bed earlier.
DH: You need to drink more Coke.
Me: (silently) Huh?
DH: Yeah, it speeds up your metabolism. All the sugar and everything.
Me: (Tilting head in confused puppy fashion) Um, o…..kay.
DH: You don’t drink enough Coke.
Me: You are so weird.
Yes, darling, I am going to have tons more energy and lose all this weight if I just drink more Coke!!! Why didn’t I know about this years ago?? I could have saved myself loads of money and time and energy had I just known that the secret to a better life lay in a can of Coca Cola!!
I did two more miles on the treadmill last night, and then I drew on the driveway with sidewalk chalk with my DDs for half and hour. Yeah, I’m living la vida loca!
