Ok.. some of you may do this. That's fine. I just don't get it. Maybe it's because I constantly slip and fall into plates of food. Or I slip and fall asleep before my feet think of getting on the elliptical. I dream about it though.. does it count if I dream about it? Anyays. Someone help me to understand the whole counting deal? A girl at work who I will call the Pink Excited Squirel counts the days she has been on her diet. She's on day 2,184. Yes. 2,184. Apparently I missed day 2,000 when she threw a party for herself. I've only recently been informed of the day counting so I didn't know to stop by her cube to celebrate. Darn it.

Now I'm all about the whole 30 day challenges or 100 day committments.. mostly because I like to count down or up to the end of the torture. I can even see how counting could be motivating in the whole I have a streak and I don't want to break it. It could be motivating.. I don't know. I don't seem to be able to make it more than 5 days without falling and landing on food or having a cute little tiny human go "Here momma!" Because they know if they bribe me I'm puddy in their hands.

Well.. in the course of writing this post I got a 3.5% raise from the job I hate that i was thinking about leaving but now I make even more so it's going to be tougher to leave, the skid steer broke and it's a $2000 fix, the accountant called and the farm hand is claiming only a protion of what we paid him and the accountant is concerned, the amish were coming to get a giant bale of hay but the snow slid off the state barn and hubby can't get it out and he's amish so he can't call him to tell him not to come so he wants to know if he should leave him a note then go get the parts to fix the skid steer which he needs to move the snow (it's ALOT of snow) but if he makes him mad he may not buy anything else and those poor horses pulling that giant wagon!... the last part was me not hubby.

All this.. last 20 minutes. I have now created chinese pizza in my mind. I'm thinking if you put orange chicken or general taos on top of a pizza it could be pretty darn good. Must stay strong!! No chinese pizza. No chinese, no pizza. No brownies the size of my head. It's Day 1! Why? No clue. Maybe I should just see if I can get to Day 6.

I came up with the perfect easter plan! Shoes!!! After my boss attempted to make me question my reasons for living, a teleconference with a CEO who forgot he was holding a mic, and then the boss making me question her sanity.. the co-worker and I went to the mall for lunch. And bought.. shoes! The preteen had been eyeballing a pair of gym shoes that were on clearance.. apparently she is the only one that sees seafoam blue and pink neon as attractive. Little man.. a pair of boots with laces and a zipper. He could zip them.. or he could tie them. He will probably want to tie them and ultimately lose the laces but he will get boots just like daddies only with a convenient I'm a child and my mom hates to tie my shoes zipper! I have now successfully filled 75% of their basket without any candy whatsoever. Woohoo.. it seems wrong on so many levels but they out number me, they're faster, I think sugar somehow possesses them and now it can't tempt me as much.

Now all I have to do is wait for the mud to disappear a little bit and I can start that 5K training app. I thought about it but the only place I really have to run where a dog won't chase me or cars can see me is down on the flat behind the barn. I figure this is 5k/hazard training. Plus.. hubby is spreading manure upwind at the moment so that should make me run faster to get away from the stench. That's my plan. Manure stink motivation and a mudslick trail of a road to maneuver. And.. the absolutely brilliant part of it all??? The barn will hide me from any neighbors or anyone just driving by. Because well.. I don't feel like jiggling in front of people plus I have a fear that the small town everyone knows everything about everyone talk will turn to the jiggle of my butt. It could happen.. you'd be amazed at what these people will talk about on a slow day.

Today has been a good day. I've managed to eat halfway decent. I had a teeny tiny brownie made from heaven. Seriously.. I hae no idea how the thing was made or what was in it but it was a teeny tiny bite of heaven. Compared to it nothing can equal it's magnificent. Now.. so long as my co-worker doesn't get the recipe from her daughter in law.. I will be safe. Upon eating the tiny piece of chocolate heaven my coworker asked me.. "Who needs spandex anyways?" To which I had no reply. Later I thought.. I DO! Ok I really don't.. but I want it to be an option. Not just because I want to smooth out the rolls under my clothes either. I want to feel confident enough to wear a bright pink freakin suit of spandex.. then choose not to because well.. I'm still somewhat sane. So today my inspiration is spandex that I will never wear because that's rational. I think.

I think today will be Day 1 of my 30 day commitment to getting rid of the 180's because well.. I still have 550 calories left and it's 4:11. I'm pretty sure I can succeed. Now if I only had 100 calories left I would have said I will start tomorrow. If I fail tomorrow then today was just practice. Yup yup. I'm going to go google spandex now. I'm pretty sure my results will be 50/50.. they will either inspire me or scare me back in line.

Update.. or I will find THIS and rethink my views on spandex all together. Still can't pull it off and I need one for a girl.. but it will be an option some day.

I need to figure out a way to get myself back into gear. There was a time when I had my butt in gear. I kept working out, logging food, journaling and I did this.. every day. I made progress. I made it all the way down to 150 lbs! Then I got pregnant again which now has me with multiple children all of which seem to want to kill one another. Except the baby.. he silently watches everyone and plans his escape. He's no longer happy in anything confining. He wants to army crawl/roll to freedom. I can't blame him. Half the time I want to follow him. Especially when the preteen teaches little man to do things like.. use his toy power tools as a weapon. You can see where this is going right? Not even two minutes later.. MOOOOOOOOOOOOOM He HIT ME!! No crap sherlock. You taught him the cute little battery operated drill was also a toy light saber! How I have no clue. I don't really want to know. This could be bad parenting but I've decided it's also teaching them survival.. and how to duck.

Anyways.. I did this once. I saw over the weekend where a mother and daughter made a 100 day commitment to working out every day. Which.. is great but my big thing is eating. I can workout. I can eat right. I can also eat alot of the right things. I can eat all the right things then suddenly find an empty twix wrapper in front of me. Animal crackers! These aren't so bad. I will get a handful and before I know it I think they run away. I don't remember eating them but they will be gone. Then I want more of them because I'm not entirely sure where the first handful went. Sure all the proof seems to point to me eating them but does it count if I don't remember eating them? Right now that answer depend on who is attempting to kill who with what or which jerk I'm dealing with at work.

This is bad. This is why I'm trapped at the 180s. I need to get out of the 180s. The 180s suck monkey butt. I have visited them long enough. I want out!!! of my fat pants.. So watching this chicky and her daughter pledge to 100 days of working out has me thinking.. Do I start a 30 day challenge to myself titled.. Stop sabatoging yourself with animal crackers, twixs, coffee ice cream, oreos, and Jimmy Johns? Do I share this challenge with others even though easter is just about here? Maybe I should start it after easter. I can practice until then. I can only purchase the kids candy I'm not tempted by. I can fill their baskets with more weapons like jump ropes and hoola hoops and things that require them to go outside to kill one another. One things for sure.. I now know that things I never thought of as dangerous are now known weapons of mass destruction. Like foam balls.. apparently foam balls are hazardous. *smacking head*

I won the mommy of the year award today! Woohoo! Ok not really. Little man is becoming slightly more independent and he has some strange aversion to going out any door on his side of the jeep. He would much rather crawl through the front seat and go out the passenger side or spalunk under his brothers carseat to get out his door.. whatever. This morning he was contemplating his choices when he spotted my stash of animal crackers in a zip lock baggy sticking out of my purse. It would have been my breakfast because we got up at 6:38 instead of 5:38. Luckily after getting ready for his day in the barn hubby decided to finally ask. "Hey! You going to work today?" To which I replied. "Do I have to? Did we hit it rich and I can stay home from the corporate crapshoot?" Anyways.. the kid stole my crackers.

I get back in the car and start my drive then discover one of my vitamins is missing. You know the fishy oil one that kinda resembles a gummy treat but gives you fish burps all day? Yeah that one. I didn't have time to take them at home so I grabbed them to take with my morning coffee at work. Flash back to little man fishing around in the front seat for my crackers which were right next to the pill. So I had to call the sitter and leave this message.. "Hey.. yeah.. Have you noticed if little man has any drugs with him? It's not a serious drug just a prenatal vitamin. If he does it's ok because once he eats it he will make horrible OMG what is that noises and faces. Come to think of it he may poop more easily too but it may smell like fish. So if you find it there let me know otherwise I will keep looking here. K! Thanks!" Luckily I did find it.. so next I could call her and when she actually did answer I could tell her. Oooh by the way.. peanut might have some prozac in his onsie.. it's ok though... It's a good thing she has a sense of humor. I've only had 4 hours of sleep so my sense of humor is questionable.

Ok it's survey time. I'm starting a new book that seems to collide pretty close to my life. Is it ok to model a character after a co-worker? I mean.. there's a chance she won't read it. If she does read it there is a chance she won't realize the cube lurking, shuffling, strange noise making cube dwelling co-worker is her.. How? I have no clue but it could happen. Love her to pieces but a character needs to be formed using her as inspiration. The temptation is it too strong. It's like the red stapler guy in the movie Office Space. I could write under another name.. still most of the things she does I'm pretty sure are uniquely her.

I also have to start one of those couch to 5K programs... for research and such. Plus I like to put myself through the actual torture for inspiration. How else can you learn things about butt crack chaffing and other strange side affects associated with fitness? Any suggestions on a program or an app or things you think I should avoid that I probably won't just because I'm programmed like that? It's the equivalent of telling a kid don't touch that.. or watching a friend drink something horrible then have them tell you that you have to try it even though they just made that horrible face in front of you but you still try it because you know it involves alcohol.. yeah its like that. I forgot where I was going with this. I think it's nap time though. Hopefully the space bar on my keyboard doesn't leave an imprint this time.
