Welcome to a sunny early spring Friday morning in Portland, Oregon!
I got a little KC and the Sunshine Band on the radio this morning on the way into work, which goes perfectly with sunny Friday mornings. I know this is just a teaser and soon Oregon’s gray rainy spring will return and kick our collective ass with Seasonal Affective Disorder (except for me, I like rain); but for today, I will pretend it is spring come to stay.
I had weigh in last night at Weight Watchers and it was good. I was down 1.2 lbs. for the week. That makes a total of 7.6 pounds in the last 5-6 weeks. Yay for me! Weight Watchers has been around so long because the system really works. I suppose millions of people know what I’m just learning. It is more effective than counting calories because it is more behavioral change than the drudgery (DRUDGERY I tell you!) of counting calories. Portion control. Eat as many fruits and vegetables as you want. Put down the brick of cheddar.
It also helps to exercise. I know, go figure! I have a tough time sticking with exercise programs so I need inspiration. More inspiration than just not being fat on my wedding day in a few months. And I found my inspiration in Michael Moore. Almost a year ago Michael Moore went for a walk and has been walking everyday since then. You can tell by his Facebook photo that he has lost weight. Michael Moore inspires me because if that rat’s ass fat bastard can do it, so can I!!! For those of you who, like me, DESPISE Michael Moore….here is your inspiration for walking everyday. Just move. For those of you who like Michael Moore, maybe you can find out what Sarah Palin does for exercise. (Not that I like her either because I really don’t. I really don’t like her A LOT.)
So there’s all the latest in fat news.
I figured out how to add a photo of my own to my blog header, so I did it. The picture is of Gearhart, Oregon. My most favorite place on earth. Gearhart is village of less than 2,000 people on the northern Oregon coast. My family has been going there since I was a baby. I want to live there someday. I could live in the tiny village and solve crimes. I think that would just be easier than moving to an English village to be the quirky American lady detective. I can be quirky just 70 miles outside of Portland.
This is not the final version of my blog. I have plans for this blog. I’m going places with this blog, you’ll see!
The auction I have been working on is tomorrow night. I have been invited to attend the event so I’m interested to see how the audience reacts to all the work Danni and I have put into the event. And hopefully I have some good stories.
Have a great weekend.
And just because I really love Rod Stewart
