I so hate this whole “Lose weight this year and be healthier” effort this year.  Thus far ..

  • See doctor more.  Check and gee thanks for the prescriptions there doc.
  • Cut down on portion size.  Damn, I’m always hungry afterwards.
  • Cut down on empty calories.  My grocery cart feels lighter without the ice cream and stuff to weigh it down.  I feel like I’m not helping the dairy economy.  That’s friggen un-American on my part.
  • Exercise more.  Still a work in progress but I’m getting there even of it’s “slowly”.  Hey, it’s still movement.

So lunch is over and I’m eating grapes instead of my normal candy because I’m still hungry.  I’m hungry cuz I cut my portion size.  Yayayayayayaya I get it that it’s healthy and it will probably help me live like a whole 3 days longer than I normally would but God I’d kill someone right now for some chocolate.

I’ll probably die from food poisoning, botulism or some damn weird Amazon jungle disease thingee from these damn warm @ss grapes.  And why aren’t they frozen and in a glass of wine?


Monday Morning


There’s a light snow coming down from the sky right now.  I suspect it’s another blanket layer to help cover central Minnesota as she sleeps this winter.  This is January so I expect cold and grey and that icky bad white stuff.  The weather here either makes one tough or it breaks you down and shows you just how weak your spirit is.

I’m not used to seasons such as these and I’m not really sure if I ever will be.  I’m used to four distinct seasons versus two long ones and two abbreviated ones.  The holidays are over and the weather makes for a long, long wait until warm weather.  Yes, I obsess about a new Spring.  I’m a warm weather kinda guy.  The weather outside makes me want to turn the fireplace on high and soak in the heat.
