Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Update on my resolution

In all the excitement yesterday of launching my novel, I forgot to mention how I'm doing on my weight-loss resolution. I know you can't go on without hearing about it!

So I weighed myself yesterday and came in at 215 pounds. Only a half-pound loss from last month, so I'm a little disappointed. I was doing better, but we went off the rails with dinners over the last few weeks, partly because the children have been giving us grief. Don't have children if you want to lose weight, is the apparent lesson. I also bought quite possibly the worst food ever (nutritionally, that is):

Yes, in case you weren't sure if regular Lucky Charms weren't bad enough for you, there is now chocolate Lucky Charms. Nutritional info: you don't want to know. There's actually not a lot of fat in each serving, but there's so much sugar I could feel my teeth rotting as I ate. Guess what: it's awesome. But it probably didn't help my attempts to lose pounds. Two months to go, and I doubt I'm going to get under 200 pounds, which was my goal for the year. So now if I can lose 8 more pounds this year, I'll be happy. 200 pounds will be my goal for next year.

Dude, you rock! How have I missed this vital nutritional supplement sure to start my morning off with a bang?!

For the weight-loss, I can suggest something. Drink water. Lots of water. I got a kidney stone a couple years back and started drinking an extra 8+ eight ounce cups of water every day. I went from about 230 to just over 175 in about a year. Now, I also lost a job in there and really started working out hard, too, so it wasn't just the water, but still... And, almost four years later, I've bounced back up to just under 190.

Mr. Geek - thanks for the advice. Chocolate Lucky Charms is new, so you may have missed it. And I don't think they could market your version to children, Jon.

I can tell that I need to update you on cereal happenings more frequently, my friend. Chocolate Lucky Charms has been out on the shelves for several months now. The newer crave sensation is Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp. It's great! I'll keep you abreast of all the new cereal happenings!
