Wow, Ramble Much?

Well, could yesterday's post have rambled much more, or had more redundancy of word choices? Creak and groan, I am so very rusty at this!

Okay, so here is my edict to myself, concerning blogging, Facebooking, and general productivity elsewhere:

"Young lady, you are NOT allowed to log into Facebook more than twice a day, and ONLY after you have done your household chores, and written or drawn something. And you NEED to put that damn mini cinnamon roll down and go to the gym as well!"

I am already disobedient to myself, as I bite into the last mini-cinni on my plate. (It's already been touched - might as well eat it, right?) "Being bad feels pretty good" as Bender from The Breakfast Club would say, as I wash down the last morsel of sweet carby goodness with the dregs of my second cup of coffee, and ponder the crafting of today's juicy rationalization for avoiding the gym. I had a doozie the other day, you want to hear it? Okay, here it is:

So this time last year, I was pushing major maximum density, and in May I joined a gym. I lost 32 pounds working out and dieting (more or less) by mid-November. If I started back to the gym in April and worked out steadily until late fall again, I could lose about the same amount, maybe even more this year.

Isn't that a beauty? It sounds so rational, so logical, so very full of shit. How about this one:

Well, at least I haven't gained any weight back!

Only I have - about 5 pounds, which is pretty good, considering the cookie/doughnut/sweet roll trifecta I've been worshipping lately. (Again with a rationalization!)

Another ode to John Hughes, with paraphrasing:

"I'll just keep eating and gaining...I'll go, I'll go, I'll go...shit! I'll go!"


In other news, I read this post yesterday and it was so beautifully written, so completely apt, that I think I need to read it every day, as a motivator. Check it out:

Me and Facebook. Bah! My wife is hooked. Stays in touch with friends and stays away from the mind-numbing games. Yay, her! Me? I'm just not that into it anymore.

Now, I do Twitter quite a bit. You should give that a try. You could do it at the gym, and with sticky fingers and a Wet Nap.

I rarely go to Facebook anymore but I have to admit to being twitter hooked as's the short conciseness of it all...and the immediate gratification I guess. Who knows. But I love that you're posting again and I need to get on the workout eat less bandwagon myself....sigh...

I get the short concise thing from facebook and stay RIGHT away from the games. I have failed to stay away from the carbs however, and I am fat middle aged lady with skin head haircut now. NOOOOOT good. Wish we could motivate each other gym wise. Perhaps we could report in? Have a contest? Naaah. That never works. Just gottawantadoit. And as for fear...I guess that's why I don't want to give up sailing. Feel the fear and do it anyway.
Hey! And guess what? Himself sailed with new, younger, slim crew yesterday and he says I balance the boat better than she does :-D Oh yesssssss! So I still don't know the difference between up wind and down wind....that's not much good to you if you've overbalanced and you're in the drink, does it :-D.
