A good day and a challenge
Today sure did start off great. We got a two hour delay because of a little ice on the roads. Now I have to tell you Nick and I took full advantage of this delay! In addition to some truly wonderful early morning loving I got a warning about the evils of snacking during the day, Nick makes such a good point with his belt. Honestly just seeing him standing there holding it makes an impression.
I had to break down and tell him yesterday that the diet was not going so well. Now I am no dummy, I did choose a good time to tell him, I was putting away my laundry! He wasn’t too happy about it. We skipped weigh in last week since I was in Florida. But I have one looming this Friday. My weight is no secret now I was down to 178.2 but as of yesterday I was back to 182. Nick wants me back to my lowest or below by Friday!! And I want that too. He made a new rule for the moment. No snacking in my recliner! I can snack but I have to get up off my butt, get off the computer, and go to the kitchen to eat there. Not unreasonable I guess maybe it will help.
My twin (soon to be known as Skinny Minnie) is helping me again with another challenge. This one mostly rest on me. The challenge is for me to lose 15 pounds by June 1st. My usual average is ½ pound a week, so this is going to really push me and I can’t let up any. The fun part… when I win this challenge I get to pick 3 implements for Adam to whip Eva’s butt with!!!! I just can’t wait! I will have to look back through her blog and see what she has said about some of their toys as I think over my decision. Oh the wonderful choices!!
So to be clear, on June 1st if I weigh 167 or less Eva gets her butt beat at my direction!!! And she will tell us all about it! Of course this is just a side bet. I still have to answer to Nick each and every week and I have to show him a loss each week or he’ll take it out of my hide! Keep watching over at Todd and Suzy’s site for weekly updates. Meanwhile please cross your fingers for me for this Friday, it’s going to take a miracle to save my butt this week!
