Accountability and The Art of Preventative Maintenance

I remember being warned that my pants would someday shrink, but I didn't expect it to be isolated to the hips and thighs area.

I've always hovered around the 120-125lb range, but when I went to my yearly checkup two months ago, I weighed in at 135. I wasn't terribly concerned about it at the time, because I wasn't "enjoying" the "benefits" of weight gain yet. Yet. In just the last 2 week, some of my pants don't fit right anymore.

Okay, let's recap: 2 months ago I weight 135, and my pants still fit fine. Now they don't fit. can deduce that I weigh MORE than 135. Ugh. By Hollywood standards, I am officially a heifer, and should be taken out back to be put out of my misery.

Now, before you all roll your eyes and start a "Fatty VS Skinny 2006" riot, I know that I'm totally healthy. I recognize that I look great, but the tight clothes bit is really bothering me. I don't want to wake up in 10 years, with an "office ass", feeling like it's too late to do something about it. By then I will be considering letting someone send me to the glue factory. (Hmmm....glue. I bet if I went on a glue diet, I would lose weight!)

This is where the preventative maintenance and accountability part comes in. I'm asking my readers to hold me accountable to start MOOOVING (ha!). I don't have lofty goals yet. I just want to start doing some crunches and maybe lunges in the evening. So, what I ask of you, my loyal audience, is to send me a quick email daily, weekly, whatever, to check in and make sure that I'm moving on a regular basis. (and I don't mean chair shimmies - get off your ASS, Kim!)

My pants and I will greatly appreciate it.

Need. No, want. No....NEED.

Anyone who gets paid to window shop is alright in my book. This is one of my favorite websites. This is the new thing that I want from said website. Hey! YOU. It's almost Valentine's Day! I know I said the holiday wasn't a big deal, but I want this.

Deja Vu???

Disclaimer: No, I'm not trying to copy this post.

Saturday morning I'm dreaming that I'm brushing my teeth. I spit a huge bubbly wad of saliva all over my pillow.

Through New Eyes.

I finally broke down and figured out how to program my coffee brewer to run in the mornings. I've always avoided the option, because I'm a bit of a coffee purist - especially when it comes to freshly ground beans.

I've since learned that perspective is vastly different at 6 am. Besides, it's really neat to turn the alarm off and hear gurgling and hissing coming from the kitchen! Another benefit to coffee before work? I'm noticing things on my commute that I've never paid attention to before! There are some really neat stores that I have been passing for *3* years...I should really get around to checking them out sometime...

Speaking of Blowjobs....And Then Not...

I'm wearing a new shirt that has horizontal stripes. I look damn good in it. This is my way of telling the fashion world to "suck it".

In other news, I've been reminded of how amazing it can be to have someone make coffee for you in the morning and bring it to you in bed before work. Thank you, Wonderful Coffee Maker Person! (This is the part that isn't about blowjobs.)
