I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I snacked way too much because I had ready-made prepackaged snacks in the house (granola bars, string cheese, yogurt).  I will NOT be purchasing convenient processed snacks anymore!  This is one case where my laziness can actually help me stick to my diet:  when I feel like snacking, I decide whether or not I want to go to the trouble of “preparing” something or whether I just want to grab an apple or banana.  The fruit always wins…or whatever else is lying around that I can just stuff in my mouth.  So if I just keep good “convenience” food around, I’m golden.  

I haven’t bought my treadmill yet, but I did order a brand new red iPod nano, which should be arriving sometime this week.  I love making kick ass workout playlists.  Let’s face it, one of the best things about exercise is the soundtrack.  Maybe I’ll share some of my playlists. 

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Fatbridesmaid is heralding a Lenten Challenge.  Participants will be sacrificing laziness for the 40 days of Lent, exercising for 30 minutes everyday.  The first day of Lent is this Wednesday, Feb 25, if anyone wants to join the fun.  

Last week, I confessed that I am a smoker and I laid out my plans for quitting.  So far, so good.  I haven’t had any problem sticking to 10 cigs or less over the past few days.  Mostly, I smoke them while I’m driving or at work…this is going to be a problem when I make it to 3 cigs or less/day.  But I’ll worry about that later.  To my surprise, my Mother In Law has decided to quit too.  Her final butt was last Tuesday.  I wish I had known that before I had to work with her this weekend, but her bitchiness wasn’t so bad.  I hope she can stick with it, because quite frankly, it will make it easier for me to stick with it.            

One more bit of business to take care of:

I got a comment from an asshat who sad my last post was bullshit because there are search engines like Google that I could use to find new blogs.  I promptly deleted it (it was, after all, in my spam que).  And if my reading comprehension magically deserted me and I misunderstood the context of the comment, I apologize for the deletion.  Somehow, I don’t think that happened, so if that person happens to be reading this post——

Yeah, I know all about Google, moron.  But I wanted to give my readers a chance to plug their blogs and, oh…I don’t know, perhaps foster a sense of community amongst those of us on the same path.

So anyway, I will be adding the blogs of the commentors of my last post to my “fatroll” (but not yours, Jen…’cause you’re already there;) ).  So if anyone else wants to be added, just leave a link. 

Alright, I think all the business is out of the way.

    I got the same spam comment. I think it was just a spam comment personally (the e-mail left, the grammer, the spelling) and didn’t think much of it.

    Girl I HEAR you on this: I will NOT be purchasing convenient processed snacks anymore!

    Those 100 calorie packs are my enemies! I can eat 3 at one time like **that**. I’m going to focus on keeping fresh, unprocessed food at home.
