Random Stuff

My final total weight gain from the holiday-10 pounds. Damn it! I'm back to my routine of working out morning and night, counting every single calorie that goes in to my mouth, and being grouchy because I'm hungry all the time.

I have 2 reasons for wanting to get back down to 136. The first is-I felt really, really good at 136. I felt light,attractive, and in shape. Reason 2-I plan on quitting smoking in January. And since they say that some people can gain up to 10 pounds when they quit, due to the change in their metabolism, I figured I better drop the 10 I gained back, otherwise I'm right back where I started.

I've lost 2.5 so far-go me! And by the way, the two things that helped me lose the original 20 pounds in the first place-hungrygirl.com and thedailyplate.com. Check them out.

I was thinking about my blog, and about other people's blogs, and I thought "What the hell is my blog about?" Weight loss? Recovery? Humor? Mommy blog? Then I remembered the name. Duh.

I know I've said this several times, but I'm trying to talk myself into it. So here I go again.

I have quite a few days off over the last 2 weeks of December, so I'm going to take some time to touch up the first two short stories I have written, and finish the third. It's very hard for me, because reading them (and writing them) makes me very emotional, and leaves me in a weird place. But, I need to try. I need to be brave. I had Little Wing read one story, and she helped with some things that need to be changed. I'd like to post one here and get everyone's opinion. Bear with me-I'm a big chicken.

And finally, do stupid people make you stabby, or is it just me? I don't know if stupid is the right word-how about heavily medicated? Clueless? Foggy people? I know someone who is the nicest person in the world, yet every time they open their mouth I want to punch them in the face. Maybe I'm just hungry.....

I love your blog. It's honesty at it's best. I don't see somebody hiding from their problems behind humor (ouch, I just stabbed myself), I see somebody that's dealing with life as it comes.
I wish I coulld do that.

Thank you! But never underestimate the healing power of humor either!
