Whine with Cookies, the Dolphin Pose & Setbacks

Yo Mum's So Fat Mum Joke #3…“She irons her clothes on the driveway” [Send me your own jokes… I’ll keep posting these until we get two chubby Brittish teachers for our fitness challenge…]

Time for the midweek update…Jeez Louise, though, I'm not sure why I'm bothering. Is anyone out there? Am I the only chubbette? Am I the only one who has Yo mum's so fat jokes? Am I the only one struggling here? I'm not feelin' the love here…

OK enough of the whineroma… Let's suck in our abs and get an update…

Saturday & Sunday… Walked both days 2 to 2.5  miles each day. Went out to eat twice (bad). Made chocolate chip/pecan cookies to give to the tech guys at work. Ate some too (bad). Ate some again (not good–not the cookies, they were great.). Ate some more later (still bad).

  • Woke up and drank lots of coffee.
  • Went into the garage for kickboxing
  • Didn't scare the cat.
  • Did a little kickboxing & yoga
  • Went to Pilates Torture Time. Got there before Doomsday Becky, grabbed a spot in the back row, made Doomsday Becky go to the front row, by the teacher. 
  • Wanted to make rabbit ears for Doomsday Becky since I was sitting directly behind her and there was a mirror in front of her. It would have been hilarious, but the teacher kept watching. 
  • Tried to do the roll down on the floor and roll back up thingy. Not happenin' in my life time even if pigs do fly.
  • Woke up, drank coffee, went into the garage for kickboxing.
  • Cat not in the garage. No one to scare.
  • Did a little kickboxing and yoga.
  • Getting good at singing "Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night" by the Black Eyed Peas. 
  • Went to work. Ate two pieces of Emergency Chocolate. 
  • Went to yoga in the evening. Doomsday Becky took my spot in the back of the room.
  • Missy Chrissy Pretzel made us do this dolphin thing with push ups. Who knew dolphins could be so mean?
  • Missy Chrissy Pretzel semi-redeemed herself by including a Leon Russell song in her music repertoire. 
  • No Eagle Pose practice this time, but did Eagle sit ups. Yeah, you try wrapping one foot around your ankle. At least I was already on the floor. No danger of falling down.
Obviously, didn't make much progress in the weight loss category probably had something to do with the eating out, the chocolate chip cookies and my lack of restraint.

I guess I'll be like Scarlett O'Hara and say, "After all, tomorrow is another day."



  1. I'm reading - and you're inspiring me! Though I don't have any "your mums so fat jokes."

  2. Thanks, Amanda! I'm glad at least one other person is out there!

  3. I'm here and I appreciate you and your transparency with us! You make me smile and you are an inspiration.
