Yep, still working on it. Today I did my jumping jacks, 40 minutes of step-aerobics, crunches, oatmeal for breakfast, Slim Fast for lunch, and I'm debating what to do about dinner. I'm hungry, yes, but I don't want to overdo it. Steve already ate, so I don't have to make a big meal for everyone, which is nice while I'm dieting. It helps to be able to individualize my meal from the others, and not be responsible for theirs as well. If I make a pasta dish for everyone else, I can either eat two spoons full of it, or eat something entirely different. So it's nice when I don't have to worry about others during diet time.
There's really not a lot of news to report, which is why blogging at this particular point is counter-intuitive. I could be writing something "real" somewhere (no offense to you, my reader. I appreciate you reading this, and all.) I edited a very long story down to about 800 words for my monthly newspaper article, and read a story my friend is working on which is quite good. I'm reading two good books right now, one I've read before (The Politically Incorrect Wife) and one I haven't (The Me I Want To Be). I liked the first one a lot, but read it a few years ago so I want to remind myself why I liked it so much. The second is one that they just got done with a series about at church, and Steve read it during the series so I'm reading it now. It's sort of repetitive in places, but it's pretty good so far.
At this point, I would like to describe what I would like to eat right now:
A triple bacon cheeseburger with ketchup, sweet potato fries, fried potatoes, nachos with meat, beans, spicy cheese, and sour cream, a baked potato with butter, cheese, and bacon, and french silk pie with peanut butter and chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge magic shell, hot fudge, and whipped cream.
I would like to eat all of that. Right. Now.
But I won't.
All right, I'm even boring myself now. It's time to feed my face with something... healthy.
