Day 155: Sitting Myself Thin
(However, it did lead to a hilarious dinner conversation about what we would do if, in fact, the Comcast guy stepped through the doorway and tried to kill me, which we role-played several times. I regret to say that Li'l Martini will be no help in a crisis whatsoever, as his instinct is to become confrontational with the 911 operator. Mimosa and the cats are my only hope. [We're assuming Husband won't be home. He mostly took his glasses off and held his face in his hands during the role plays, an attitude he often assumes during our mealtimes, I must add.])
And technology was not my friend today; my editing program was moving at a snail's pace, for some reason, making a 5-minute page take 20 minutes, which made me wild, and also our new phone doesn't work properly, which made me WILD. (Technology is under the Mister's purview; I just want him to handle it. Which he mostly does, just . . . sometimes not.)
And here was the other thing: I was so hungry. My stomach growled. I was obsessed with what I might eat next. And there was no reason for it! I had a perfectly reasonable breakfast (Greek yogurt and high-fiber chunky cereal) and a perfectly reasonable lunch (leftover taco stuff on a huge plate of lettuce, plus a clementine). I think I was just bored and frustrated. But still — it was so hard not to eat, I almost cried. And yet I'm determined to make the scale start moving again — I can't believe how long it's taken me to lost this next 10 pounds and officially get into the 50s!
Grrr. Arggh. Just one of those days.
I did eat a handful of wasabi almonds. And then while cooking I drank red wine, which is my new favorite trick because I love it less than white wine and so I drink it more slowly but it still feels like a treat.
Unfortunately, I'm kinda starting to love it a lot. Still not as much as white wine, but . . . kinda a lot. So this great "trick" may not work for me much longer. I'll have to switch to something truly disgusting, like Scotch, ughy-pew.
Anyway! I'm done working for the day and I did my five Cheerleader pages and now it's time to address holiday cards and watch You've Got Mail or Waterloo Bridge (two movies I grabbed at the library). And drink coffee. And try to think good slimming thoughts.
Oscar nominations tomorrow!
