You guys must have not watched much “Beverly Hills, 90210” growing up like I did, because only 5 of you voted in the poll! The winner with 80% of the votes was Dylan (the only other vote was for Brandon-from my mom, who said Dylan was a “whiny bitch”). Hopefully more of you will vote this week!
Today ends the contest I have been holding for the last few weeks. If you’ll recall I was doing the contest originally as a push to 50, and the entry was to send me a healthy recipe. Well I hit 50 SO FAST that I only got one recipe entry, and that one was from Odie at The Simple Life. As a result I offered to send him a magnet (part of the giveaway) as thanks. Well, I’ve been a bum, and I haven’t sent him the magnet yet. I’M SO LAZY!!!
Yesterday I shot him this e-mail:
Please don’t think I have forgotten you!
I have been poor these last few weeks-so your magnet is being mailed this week along with the winner’s things for the contest when it ends Monday.
Sorry for being a bum!
Odie’s awesome (and hopefully patient) because he hasn’t chewed me out for not sending him his magnet. Anyway, today the contest ended. Woo hoo! I grabbed the random number generator and put in 1-64 (thanks for the entries, y’all!):
So I grabbed my spreadsheet that I have been keeping track of daily, and look who is number 43!
HAHAHAHA! Congrats to Odie (again!) for winning ALL of the Australian loot! I have your address already so it will be send out this week.
I PROMISE!!! :)
As for the loot, it’s a small assortment of knick knacks I picked up before I left Australia…I hope you enjoy them Odie!
This weekend was uneventful, except we got to have my niece stay over this weekend. She is the first girl in out family for 21 years, so she’s…a bit spoiled, to say the least (but honestly, all the grandkids are). But she is the best kid EVER! Yes, I’m biased, but she’s so mellow. All the nephews are so FULL of energy I just can’t keep up, but she just plays with her baby in her playhouse.
Because she was over everyone else in my family came over and my mom barbequed. I decided to try and bake some cinnamon apples using a new recipe, and damn they were good.
I weighed myself today, and I have gained 1.6 lbs. Ugh. Last week I told my mom “I’m going to fall over and die if I have lost weight”, and I ended up breaking even. I think my weight and cravings are cyclical woman-wise. There’s a week I’m not hungry at all, a week where I can control my cravings, a week where I splurge but try and balance it out, and a week where I don’t give a damn what goes in my body. Last week was week four!
So yeah, not much to report except I’m fatter…I’m trying to psych myself up to join the local gym but with my social anxiety starting to rear its ugly head whenever I think about walking into a gym and seeing people LOOK at me I start to panic. I haven’t been called in for any jobs yet, but even then the thought of talking to a stranger and puff myself up so I look like the perfect candidate is scary. It sucks because if you knew how I was, you would be really surprised that I am the way I am now.
Hope everyone has a good week!
