Weigh in was yesterday. My first week back on WW. Well, following it closer and online at least. I was down 2 lbs. Not too bad I was hoping for more, but I will take anything because I still haven’t gotten my butt in gear on exercise. Poor Lippy has probably frozen in place from sitting so long with no use, other than the dirty clothes that she hangs onto so nicely for Clint, or the occasional little workout she gets when Abbie hops on to see how fast she can go in reverse.
Clint, skinny man that he already is, has decided that he’s cutting out the crap for a while. I don’t know how on earth he does it. He’s skinny. He thinks he’s not. The man thrives on candy bars for snacks at work, McDonalds several times a week for breakfast if he’s hungry (instead of eating at home before he leaves)…whatever he feels like out of the machine at work if he’s hungry before lunch, which usually means some kind of sweet pastry thing. He says he needs that sugar in the morning to get going. Here I am…feeling guilty about just about every bite that goes into my mouth, can’t lose a pound unless I starve, and then there’s him…crap-ola is his diet and skinny man…oh well…men suck. Well, at least THAT part does…he’s a good man otherwise… So he’s focusing more on the calorie contents of things and packed salads with grilled chicken for his lunches and fruits for snacks, stuff like that. Thing is, his sudden change of diet has also been a boost for me. It’s like I don’t feel so ‘alone’ with it all. He’s never had a weight problem. He is supportive…very supportive. But all he has to do to lose weight is cut out one snack a day. Boom, 10 lbs. gone. It’s kind of nice to have someone in the house being concious of it all as well. Gives me confidence to do this…
Now for the ‘feelin’ old’…My mom is out of town for the week for work. That leaves me to man the office alone for the most part. Megan is still coming with me, and seems to be tiring of the toys and stuff she has here to keep her busy. So we all went to Wal-mart last night to pick up a few things and decided to get her a few new little things to have at work to keep her interest. I got the bright idea of finding her some new Colorforms.
Here’s the clincher. PLEASE please PLEASE tell me you all know what Colorforms are?!?!?!?! Clint didn’t have the foggiest idea. The lady in the FRIGGIN TOY DEPARTMENT at Wal-Mart had no idea. She decided that it would be the same thing if she sent me to the material/craft section of the store and use the SELF-ADHESIVE FOAM SHAPES. Just in case you all don’t know, and maybe I’m dating myself, but Colorforms are the coolest thing EVER. They usually come in a box like a board game box. There is a background of some sort, I had one when I was little of Holly Hobbie. The ’stickers’ that go on it are like a window sticker. Completely removable and reusable. You put the different stickers on the background to create a scene. Make sense?? I was floored that no one knew what they were!!! I did get lucky enough to find two small ‘travel’ sets of Colorforms, one Dora and one Spongebob. Other than that, nothing. Am I really that old?????
