Officially Official (Unofficially Titled- Tips and Tricks for Dieting)

Some friends encouraged me to blog last night. I thought- "Umm, no, not tonight. Tonight I don't feel like I could be a blogger."

Tonight, I was sitting watching The Biggest Loser and I wanted a snack. So bad.

I thought..... I could get up and get a snack (which is not really the ideal thing to do when you went over your points at 3pm and had two helpings of macaroni cheese after that, along with 5 chicken fingers and 2 chocolate cupcakes).

I thought.... I could try and create a blog instead, save myself some calories, and.......how appropriate would it be to make my first blog post about my thoughts on dieting? Marvelous.

And thus the official first post begins. So enjoy.

Here are some things I have tried in an attempt to stop eating junk and lose some weight (not in any order and some attempted more than once):

1. Spin 3 times a week. (I mean two, actually one)
2. Chew yummy snacks and spit them out (pathetic!)
3. Buy a bag of mini assorted chocolates (now it wouldn't be fair to only eat one kind- that would hurt the others' feelings)
4. Eat carrots and pretend to love it (washed that down with a honkin big brownie)
5. Hang skinny clothes on dresser (fit my pinky and that was sad)
6. Read magazines with skinny people in them and about skinny ideas (washed that down with a brownie too)
7. Talk and talk and talk about eating healthy and exercising (does talking count for exercise?)
8. Drink hot water with lemon juice to awaken the liver and eliminate bad enzymes (um- hot lemon water is gross and where is my liver anyway?)
9. Buy Nike Gear (magic swim powers were not actually included)
10. Swim (Um, pool water tastes really bad and I'm pretty sure I gained water weight)

Off to bed so I can get up to spin to skinny (idea #1). Need to pack my carrots (idea #4) and other various healthy snacks in another attempt (attempt #4,591) to get healthy. Just please don't offer me a double fudge brownie. We all know what will happen.


  1. you are hilarious and should write a book (with lots of paranthesis)

    and if it is any consolation, I run all the time (over 16 miles since Saturday) and I'm not skinny.. and I don't eat brownies (but a glass of wine with my veggies seems balanced? :)

    I like to talk about eating healthy and exercise, while exercising.. and the pathetic thing is I know nonskinny me (current) could totally kick(previously)skinny me's butt! So what the heck!

    haha, and my list of ways to be skinny is mighty long too..

    and being healthy just doesn't seem to be enough, cause darn it those skinny jeans are just too cute with their yellow lining and itty bitty number on the tag!

    so cheers to getting back on the horse every morning (even if there are still brownie crumbs on our lips from the night before)!!

  2. yay! you did it! =) i think you have something will the whole brownie thing. you know there's a cookie diet so maybe the brownies will work!
