Do what? Talk about the exercise and diet stuff. I figured I’d just mention at the end of my Friday blog how much weight I lost this week.
Sigh, but that is not the case. Here’s why:
As I mentioned on my personal blog yesterday my office is encroaching around me. To the point where I have stacks of stuff pressing against my elbows on my desk!!
So tonight while hubby was watching Big Brother 8 (which I refuse to watch, and y’all know why) I looked at my office and made a decision: It needed to be gutted. I took the first step earlier today when I called a mobile shredding company. I have tons of old files stored in my garage that need to go, and being the cynic I am, I want the shredders to come to me while I watch my stuff get shredded. They come Tuesday morning. So I went through everything in my office making an impressive paper mountain t add to the boxes of old files, and what treasure did I find amongst the dead trees?
A Spiegel catalogue. Not the big one, The Idea Resource for Dressing and Decorating one. Ladies we are talking some smashing fashion here! So amidst the blizzard of paper I opened it. And salivated. OMG! The clothes! The colors! The boots! I was in heaven. And it made me want more than anything to get rid of this fat following me! I hate being followed by the way.
So I recommitted right then and there. Not that I had fallen off the train, far from it, but I have not exercised as much as I should have this week. But one trick I have learned is I don’t have a problem reading on the dreadmill. So currently I am reading Jen’s SEX on the BEACH and I tell you what, it makes me want to get on that thing! I don’t cheat and read the book if I’m not going at 3.5 mph on a level 8 incline.
So, I am taking a page out of the Spiegel catalogue and slapping it on my office door, so every time I walk in and out (which is dozens of times a day) I will see this svelte chick wearing my outfit!
So this week I lost one pound. I was happy with that. How about you, and name your tricks! And do you love clothes? Shoes? Handbags? What is your guilty pleasure?
