If tobacco companies can be sued for causing cancer, can
I sue the Girl Scouts for making me fat? I had no problems looking those sweet cookie pushing girls in the in the eye and saying "bitch, get otta
my face!". Then Chubby Hubby decided that it was a grand idea to buy
some cookies from the girl across the street. Lets just say that my
measly C25K workout is no match for a sleeve of Thin Mints (I was good
and didn't eat the wholefreakin' box this time....I had help).
The cookies were the icing on the cake. I have been a bottomless pit. I
really don't have an excuse for my constant hunger. Stress? Anxiety?
Boredom? Climate Change? Who knows. I do know that I have to unstrap
the feed bag.
Now I will get to the $279.65.... This is the amount of money that I have spent on the Weight Watcher program since September. I have been doing this program for roughly 6 month. I use
the term "doing" loosely as I have been pretty half-assed about it.Granted I am going in the right direction, but after 6 months I should be a lot further along than I am right now. Seeing the amount of money that I have spent and seeing the number on the scale tells me I had better get to work.
It is funny that money is the motivating factor for me right now. Before it would have been the scale. Like everyone else we are feeling the pinch of the slow economy. If I keep up at this pace, I may as well flush the money down the toilet. At my center they have a cross-stitch plaque (yes, someone actually made this for WW) that says "It Takes as Long as it Takes". Translation: We will rake in the dough while you drag your ass making a lifestyle change. I don't want to look back 6 months from now and be in the same situation with even more money invested. I want to be at or damn near goal.
I STILL haven't heard anything about the half marathon lottery. I have become a bit OCD checking my email (the website says we will find out by March 5th). I want to know NOW! I am sure checking my email every 5 minutes is going to make the results come in faster. I have issues.
Oh....and my Garmin 50 (piece of shit) is back to the tricks of not uploading. I give up. Really I don't use Garmin Connect anyway, it just bugs me that the device is not working like it should.
