My co-workers aren’t helping me with this whole diet thing because they keep coming in my office and sticking their grubby hands in my candy basket, picking something out and then talking to me for thirty minutes while I have to sit there and watch them feed their face with chocolate, Nerds, Jolly Ranchers, Laffy Taffy, and other fine delectables to be desired. Do I sound bitter? I warned you when I started this whole diet mess, that I was not a happy dieter! I’ve sunk so low that I’ve started planning my “free days” and marking them on my calendar!!
God works in mysterious ways, ya’ll! When I got back to my desk with my snack, the song, “I Will Survive” was playing on the radio. I cracked up! What a sense of humor He has!! It was just the little attitude adjustment I needed! But I feel like I’m surviving on Weight Watchers’, Lean Cuisine, and Special K cereal. I’ve got to begin mixing some things up or I’m going to get bored and really jump ship!! I think I need my own personal chef (and nanny and maid, too). My precious time spent on the internet looking for low calorie recipes, has only yielded gross stuff with goat cheese and lentils. Who eats that stuff, pray tell?!
Since my birthday is next week, my employees asked me today – while their grubby hands were digging around in my candy basket – what kind of birthday cake I wanted. Ugh!! I was like, “Do we have to?” (There was a time not so long ago when I insisted on having birthday cake on my birthday…with ice cream). So what I told them was that since another person’s birthday is the 28th, why don’t we “share” a birthday cake? They seemed to like that idea and I made it a personal goal to loose at least three more pounds by the 28th so that I can enjoy some “Happy Birthday To Me” cake. Gosh, ya’ll! I can’t wait!! I hope it’s chocolate!
Oh! And check out this great Weight Watchers pie here. It’s wonderful!! If you make it, let me know what you think.
Enough about diets. If I post about food any longer, I think I might just order a pizza!
Let’s see…last night was dance. Tonight was gymnastics. Tomorrow night is church. Maybe by Thursday I’ll get to breath again just in time for Wayne to head back to the camp on Friday.
I have a very exciting Wordless Wednesday post to share tomorrow. Some of you already know about it because of emails, but it’s still exciting for the Horton’s – especially Alise. It won’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
