Let’s weigh in, shall we?

Somehow, despite a week of steroids, crazy (non-South Beach) eating and virtually no exercise, I managed to lose two pounds since my last weigh-in, whenever that was.

What’s up with that?

For the past week I’ve kind of eaten like how I imagine regular folks eat: a brownie here, a hamburger (with the bun) there. We even had buttered popcorn one night for an evening snack.

I’m not even going to try to analyze or explain it. It is what it is, and I’ll take it, thankyouverymuch.

Forgive me a tiny bit of analysis: I hesitate to give any credit to my new favorite beverage, but it does contain antioxidants that are purported to boost metabolism. I love, love, LOVE Lipton Diet Green Tea with Citrus. Tiny Kroger even has a store brand that’s just as tasty and a buck-fifty cheaper (per 12 bottles) than the Real Stuff. But since I was at Sam’s yesterday I picked up two cases of the Real Stuff, which ought to last us, oh, a week or so.

I haven’t been knitting at all. The triplet sweaters are going to be too small for their fall wardrobe – they each weigh between 10 and 11 pounds now. I’ve abandoned that project and can’t seem to find anything new that’s exciting or tempting. I’ve been spending all my former knitting time playing solitaire, either on the computer or on the iPod.

That’s not a good sign for my mental health. I hope that getting back into a disciplined race training program will help me back out of these doldrums.

When all else fails on the knitting front, I whip out a few of the felted bowls from One Skein. I love those things, and I seem to be of the mind that you can never have too many felted bowls :)

Must be the time of year. I can't seem to mobilize either - and I've got a lot to mobilze over - sold my condo, close next week and have to be out by end of August and still don't have a place to move to. Then 3 weeks ago my car was stolen. Haven't done anything towards replacing it and will need to turn in the rental in a couple of days...and yet I do NOTHING.

I am hopeful that the longer I wait the better chance there is that the universe will intervene and magically solve all of my problems with no effort on my part!

Perhaps you will be similarly inspired with knitting projects and marathon training...although based on my results so far, I wouldn't count on it if I were you!

Maybe some of this has been the heat? You're not too far from me and it's been horribly humid and muggy and hot. I have faith in your ability to suddenly BREAK OUT. :-)

So Kroger has a version of this...well, I'll be braving our local Kroger for this.
