Tip of the day: Do NOT ever neglect to take your iPod, or at least your headphones, to the gym, even if you think you don't need them. This week I went to Zumba class. I didn't take my gym bag, which contained my music gear, because I was going to Zumba and wouldn't need to be entertained. I arrived at the gym to find that there was no class that night. The teacher didn't show up. I was stuck doing the hamster wheels for exercise with no music or even television to keep me from going crazy.
I don't like my new Lean Eating exercise phase. I have no problem doing the exercises. It's just that in the demos they provide for us they show a model doing front squats in the cage with 20 pound plates on the bar. I went into the cage to do front squats and learned I can't even hold the bar in front unweighted. Now that demo just makes me feel inadequate!
I know I said in another post that I should accept spring as is, but this weather is ridiculous. It's the end of April. Even on the "nice" days I need a coat. We need some summer, stat!
Dear Men's Wearhouse: You are not likely to sell many suits when your model looks like Steve Urkel.
A definition of torture: Sitting on the train home, starving and trying to hold out until you come home and can get something nutritious. The person next to you is drinking a beer and eating a bag of pretzels. The person across from you is eating a big bag of popcorn. The person next to her has a big pastry from Zaro's. You begin to hate humanity.
I know I have said it before on this blog, but I still hate the term "baby bump".
I am wondering how many NRA members and assorted right wing gun nuts are going to cancel their subscription to Mad magazine after this month's issue. I do enjoy this quote: Things that stop a bad guy with a gun - A good guy with a gun who happens to be in the exact right place and is able to fire off a split-second shot that happens to nail the bad guy.
Lilacs, you are the cruelest flower. You are such a pretty color and no flower on the planet smells so wonderful. Why must your blooming season be so brief? I can only enjoy your for a few short weeks. Not fair!
Words to live by: Hold on to your meatball and don't ever sneeze.
