Bikini Challenge (Week VIII: WTF?)

I'll confess. Tonight I'm biding time, waiting for the Tylenol PM to kick in. I've got head issues, stuffed nose issues, back issues, cinnamon sugar issues....sleep would cure these things.

But if I wait any longer to post a bikini update, y'all will think I'm hiding something.

Not true. Just forgetful.

Though true....I have been running like a horse these days. I have also been eating and drinking like I bed down in the same stable as the horse who is running. Here lie the most memorable moments of my Week 7 diet:

Monday: supper = one spoonful of peanut butter.

Tuesday: completely unmemorable.

Wednesday: 9 p.m. heat-lamp pizza from the Framingham State College cafeteria, washed down with Gummy Peach Rings from the pick-a-mix bin.

Thursday night menu-on-the-town: Guinness, Blue Point oysters, Trimbach Gewurztraminer, PBR, PBR, PBR, PBR, karoake, popcorn.

Friday: Muffin for breakfast, donut for snack, oatmeal for lunch, pasta and clams and cream sauce for dinner, canoli for dessert.

Saturday: Several passes through the Italian buffet (penne in red sauce, rare roast beef and provolone on a bun, potato salad) at a party that also featured birthday cake with inch-thick frosting.


Nonetheless, I'm not hiding out. I've lost 3 pounds in the last 3 weeks. Pants all still fit. Yoga is on the schedule tomorrow. And I know it's just 3 weeks to belly baring. Which means it is time to commence Operation Ripple:
: 100 sit-ups per day.
: 30 minutes of cardiovascular per day, minimum.
: vegetables by the dozens.
: moratorium on cinnamon sugar.
: sleep. and then maybe some more sleep.
See ya in Week 9, suckahs......!

ok, I want to know how you eat all the junk and still lose 3 lbs. I run a lot, eat nowhere near that much sugar, and the scale never budges. Not that I'm really trying to lose weight, but a few lbs wouldn't hurt. Tell me your secrets!!

Would you hate me if I said it was probably anxiety? :-) I don't think anyone needs more of that!

If it makes you feel any better, the scale yesterday night said only 2 lbs down. Tell me how THAT works....
