Day 23: “You shut your mouth when you’re talking to me!”. Lock it up people. This is a warning- don’t bring me any stupid today, as Momma is still cranky. Although my awesome may have been switched on, I think my lifetime of immediate satisfaction, especially when it comes to food desires is coming back at me. I have run through all my “suggested for you” purchases on Amazon, I have jcrewed, netaportered, shopbopped and nordstromed- no credit card is safe during this time of no crackers and no scale.
Everyone I run into is very nice to compliment my general presentation of self, which is greatly appreciated btw. Have I lost weight? Yes, definitely. My guess is 10 pounds. All my clothes fit…except those “skinny” jeans, and I don’t mean skinny in terms of the actual style, but my personal skinny jeans that are not a currently acceptable waist height. Girls you know what I mean. These I can button, but it isn’t pretty.
I don’t know if this is true of everyone but I lose weight from the top down- so I can tell my face is thinner, my boobs seem a litter smaller (which sadly translates to droopier), stomach flatter, hips a tad narrower. However, the ol’ thighs are holding on to their saddle bags like we are about to take off to discover the west.
Another oddity I noticed yesterday at yoga. I was thinking I looked a little fitter in the mirror and then I did a shoulder stand and yep, still fat upside down. Anyone else ever noticed this phenomena? That stomach roll that wasn’t there when I was standing up, came back with a vengeance when upside down. Then I went into plow and as I tried to remove my boobs from my eyelids I thought to myself “of course it was totally a man that invented the practice of yoga, as no woman would ever design anything that required such consistent face-to-crotch contact.” Think about it.
I have a really busy work week and quite a list of planning to do for Wheatthinpalooza. I don’t want to overhype, as this is just a few friends over for dinner, but there will be a lot of crackers. I started thinking about all the wonderful things I would cook and then I thought “silly girl, there will be appetizers and wine…you will be too busy to cook” so now thinking caterer or postmates.
Here are my 3 things:
1. Things that make me pee my pants laughing? Documentary Now on IFC. I am late to this party, but it is beyond genius. Here is my favorite clip from their remake of Grey Gardens, called Sandy Passage.
2. Things I love? All things paper. I am very particular about the weight, color/design and feel of my paper. Don’t even think about giving me any whimpy card stockI This is a result of my formative professional years being spent in the graphic design world at the awesome Copeland Hirthler. I can drop some serious cash on stationary, notebooks, writing pads, cards and notebooks.
3. Pet Peeve/things I find redonkulous? People that do not write thank you notes on paper. And I have been asked before if this is a “southern thing” and NO, it is just manners. And definitely if you spent a bunch of money on engraved stationary…use that shit!!
