How are you guys?? Things are good for me over in the hood! As far as weight this, right on track, again no gains, but no losses either. Working out, I have been doing ok. Walked about 3 miles each night this week. Hoo-Rah to me!
Tonight however I did almost get bit by a dog on my way home from my walk. Obviously, in my hood, tying up your dogs isn't really a priority.
I was about 20 steps from my house when (we'll call him Chopper) came out from behind the house where the crazy kid who rides his dog lives. I didn't think alot about Chopper, because he was so small. But he darted towards me and was growlng and snapping right at my legs. I was
SURE he was gonna bite me. He turns and runs into the street- Growling and hissing at me.
I stood so still.
I needed to change my pants. I think I tinkled a little.
I hid behind a tree like a little punk girl.
Ok, well I am a girl. But this dog scared me more than Kate Gosselin on a rampage. Now I know what Jon must feel like. Dang!
So here I am whimpering behind this tree.. Here's Chopper in the street just threating to make a move. I know I can't outrun him the block to my house. I'm still kinda fat and slow..
I call Hubs. "Hubs where is the pepper spray? I am being held hostage by a damn dog! I am right here on the corner by our mailboxes!"
(I never claimed he was quick.)
"HUBS. I AM OUTSIDE OF OUR HOUSE. THERE IS A DOG. HE IS MEAN. HE TRIED TO BITE ME. GET YOUR PEPPER SPRAY AND GET OUT HERE NOW!"
Hubs: "Where are you?"
"OMG WHATEVER HANG UP YOU ARE SO NO HELP!"
Hubs: "Ok, Ok, I see you.. Why do you need the pepper spray?"
(Seriously Ladies..I can't take him sometimes)
By this time, I had gotten fed up and hung up. So I turn and look and apparently my yelling had scared Chopper away. If I had ONLY YELLED SOONER!
So maybe I need to do my walks with a little more protection.
Pepper Spray, body armor.. a baseball bat.. I'll be set! Nobody ever said workin out was easy!
The question this week over at EMME:
Name your Guilty Pleasure: Thing of a healthier choice you could use as a substitute.
Ok immediately I am not thinking food here. I mean since I've started out with my diabeties I've sort of lost interest in bad food. I don't mean that to sound snotty or uppity or anything.. But really ladies if I eat the bad food, I feel so sick that I never wanna eat it again. It's a complete turn off.
Heres My List:
Pedicures on Tuesdays-----------I love my time with Jason and Rita, sitting in the spa chair.
What could I be doing??? Walking, running, doing a class at the gym.
Coffee----------Coffee has taken the place of chocolate for me. It's my weakness. I will try any coffee once. I will pay .95 to 7.00 for a good cup of joe. I like places that have very rare coffee's.. stuff you wouldn't expect to find in KS.
What should I be drinking..?? MORE WATER!! H20
Reading books in the park--------------I do this alot. I get a new book from the library and I head to the park to read when it's nice. I maybe do this a tad too much. What am I a lady of leisure??
What should I be doing?? Playing in the park instead of lounging around!
Other Guilty Pleasures I need to just avoid all together:
*9.00 Beauty Control Lotion. It smells good, but you know you have a problem when you wanna lick your legs.
*Betty Crocker Chocolate Whipped Lip Balm. It makes everything I drink or eat taste like chocolate. I am putting it on far to much. I maybe eating it in my sleep. Who knows?
* Online Shopping. I need to get up and go to the store and walk around. That would be helpful on the calories and then I would be too tired to actually buy anything.
* Tropical Snow. The one actual "Food" thing that I am addicted to. Basically it's shaved ice with flavoring. I have one small a week. When they know your name and what you want. That's kinda a problem.
Ok ladies good luck this week!
