Street Money Update!

That’s another 5 cents! Friday night and I’m going out! No, not really. I’ll just add it to the bumblebee box that we keep the street money in until the end of the year.

Thanks Mason! Good job!

And that concludes my eating for the day…

May 1, 2009 at 2:12 pm (Day to Day, EFS) (, , , , , , )

It is 9:20 AM, Central Time, US, and I am not proud to say that I just ate entirely too much food from McDonald’s because I am weak and I suck.

I have been resisting all week, trying to stay true to my new religion, Extreme Fat Smash; and my new God, Dr. Ian K. Smith. Although I could have used a little salvation at the drive thru about an hour ago.

I couldn’t get my kids to school fast enough so I could get over there. There was no Dr. Smith standing in the window of the Richton Park, McDonald’s, over by the highway, crossing his arms and shaking his head, shaming me into sulking away from the fast food and over to the gym. (I avoid the McD that is right next to the gym because, you know, the gym is right there…too much guilt if I actually see the place…)

Anyway, I ate alot, and after totaling up the calories, that’s pretty much it for me today.

So, water and coffee, maybe one of those popsicles in the plastic if I’m really dying. Otherwise, long road ahead. Except that the sound of  gravel under the tires is really is my grumbling stomach. Oh boo hoo…I did it to myself. Music keeps my mind busy and my hands typing. So here is the list for the day:  “Long Road Ahead

It’s about roads and travel and highways and freeways…it came to me last night after looking for songs withDirection“.

The ways to get there can get there own. Say that five times fast.

Raise a glass (of water) and listen up! List is below. Ha.

…For being such a good sport about me staying up all night posting my idiocy on the internet:  A picture of the fish tank that really highlights all the effort you put into it. It’s beautiful. I love you. L.

Day 4 / Extreme Fat Smash / Again.

May 1, 2009 at 1:15 am (Day to Day, EFS) (, , , , , )

This should be an easy day though…after last night and the trophy loss–basketball defeat—we took my son to Taco Bell. It fixes everything. At least for him it does. Such an innocent child….

Anyway, it’s an easy day. Yogurt/fruit. Health shake  or bar. Salad w/egg. Then a veggie/turkey burger for dinner. 40 minutes of Cardio. Done.

Still hungry, but still want to be healthy. I have races to run.

So here, in a burst of over-enthusiasm, TWO playlists!:

Rainy Days …’cause it just won’t stop, and my lawn is about to float away…


Directional Plays …everywhere at once when you  need to stay…
