Ten Things Thursday!
Rambo is still the Mayor and that means I’m still the First Lady of Podunk. Seriously people – we had over a 50% turnout – which is huge…but do you want to know how many people that actually was? 109. 109 people voted and that was over 50% of our town. Sweet grasshopper dicks, right? You probably thought I was exaggerating when I said Podunk was small but I wasn’t.
Some of it was fun. We watched the polls and waited for results and our phones rang off the hook and texts were coming in left and right with congratulations. I’m proud of Rambo. And I get to keep having sex with the Mayor. That never gets old.
2-Rambo weighed today and he’s down 21 lbs. Kinda fun, huh?
3-It’s supposed to be close to 60 degrees today. I am DYING to run outside just so I can carry my cute pink bottle of mace. Also because I’m dying to find a reason to buy arm warmers. Have you seen how cute some of the arm warmers are out there? Sooo cute. I mean why put on a long sleeve shirt when you can buy cute arm warmers – with thumbholes? Thumbholes are the best thing evah.
4-Rambo is dying for summer to get here too. He is researching parks and hiking trails like a mad man. He wants to go hiking or biking all summer on his days off with me and the girls. Maybe even camp. Calm down all you little divas out there. Have no fear – we will be camping in a “camper”. No tents for this girl. I mean really. Tents don’t have air conditioning. Duh.
5-Yesterday I took off work early and Rambo got out of the semi early so we could pick up our girls from school as a surprise. On the way home, Watermelon asked, “Why are you both off of work so early?” I said, “Cuz. We wanted to pick you both up so we could dance in the car all the way home.” And then I started dancing my ass off in the front seat and Rambo started head-banging. I thought it was hilarious. My girls rolled their eyes and they tried not to laugh.
They about shit their pants when we took them to the local gas station and ate ice cream treats with them. THOSE are the days I want them to remember instead of the ones like the night before when the election took our entire souls. Sigh.
6-A teacher in Watermelon’s class showed that video of that basketball guy’s leg breaking and a boy in her class passed out. Why a teacher felt the need to show that is beyond me.
7-I’m into week 3 of the work weight loss program. This week focused on a “stop eating cue”. The woman says every person has one or needs one. It can be pushing your plate back a few inches. Drinking a cup of coffee. Chewing a piece of gum. Loosening your belt. Or putting your napkin over your plate. You may not even know you do it but when you do – it’s your cue that you are done…and you stop eating.
Our assignment this week was to find one for ourselves. I’m having a little trouble with this one because I don’t sit down to eat a normal meal like most people do. I don’t take a lunch break because I eat through it at my desk. I have a salad or my chicken/brocc/rice but they are always in a container and I finish them because there isn’t a lot to begin with. Supper? Like last night I waited until I was hungry and that was about 7:30 and I got up and stuck 4 pcs of ham between two pieces of bread and sat on the couch and ate it. No plate. I don’t know – when I eat these days – it’s portioned out to be eaten fully…so I don’t need a stop eating cue. Do you have one?
8-The other thing I’m having trouble with is her “order of eating”. She says that you have to eat every single food separate and you eat your favorite thing first. Like if you have a plate with chicken, broccoli and potatoes on it….and chicken is your favorite. Eat how much chicken you want – slowly – and when you move on to the next thing – you CANNOT go back to the chicken. Then let’s say you eat some potatoes. Slowly. You do this for 10 minutes. You break for 5. Then you eat another minimum of 10 minutes but you cannot go back to the chicken or potatoes. You finished those. Get it?
The purpose is so that each food is actually tasted and registered in your brain. If you mix them and eat them fast – it’s a fact they all taste the same and your brain can’t register that you just ate 3 foods because it only tasted like one.
You have to literally, tediously taste each food and decide when to move on….and you can’t go back.
For me – again – I don’t lay my food on a plate. And I don’t have a lot of food that can be separated. I eat eggs for breakfast. That’s it. I eat Lean Cuisine pizzas for supper a lot …which can’t be separated. Hmmm. I use the principles when I can….the people here are loving it and losing weight and keeping it off so I’m trying to keep an open mind.
9-I think I should stop now. 7 & 8 were pretty winded. Shocker, I know.
10-We have NO plans for the weekend and I’m so excited about that that I could pee my pants. Rambo and I may even have a few hours minus the kiddos and if I didn’t hate poop so much I’d be so excited about that that I’d consider pooping my pants.
