Chocolate Christmas trees count as a vegetable, right?

No update this week. Just wanted to share an awesome internetty tool with you, Zafu.com. I have the worst time finding jeans that fit, and usually, after hours under harsh fluorescent lights staring at the worst parts of my body being amplified in oh-so-flattering ways, I convince myself that the last pair I tried on was made for me, buy the blasted things and go around tugging them up for the next gajillion years while I try to work up enough nerve to go jeans shopping again because they were 2 sizes to big to begin with. Sexy. So, this site? Helpful.

PS- sorry if this showed up twice in your Reader. I kept trying to link or imbed the "mom jeans" skit from SNL and failed miserably and gave up, but Blogger was all weird about it and didn't want to say goodbye to the first post. So, yeah. Sorry I am a dork...

I just don't have the energy for a clever title...

Bleh. I have the mother of all colds. Not to mention the cranky, sick three-year-old who has been waking up at all hours of the night demanding SOMETHING. He has no idea what he wants, but he knows he needs something. I keep trying to remind myself that this, too, will pass and that someday I will be able to lay in bed all frikking day if I really want to, but that is just not so comforting right now.
Anyway, I can't really taste anything right now, so eating is not all that tempting or exciting. Unfortunately, neither is exercising...
How are you faring this week?

Pasta Gluttony would be a good name for a restaurant, don't you think?

Yes, I know that it is ridiculous that the week after I swore not to neglect you anymore, my Monday review is a day late. I suck and I apologize.
Sooo, last week. Last week = not good. Last week, we went on an impromptu date and I blew a gabillion calories on some seriously, incredibly, almost laughingly sub-par pasta. I did not realize that tortellini could taste bad. Never, since the Great Tortellini Awakening of 2000, have I tasted such bad tortellini. And yet, I gobbled it all up, Alfredo sauce that tasted like it was from a jar and all. How gross does food have to be before I stop eating it? Anyone?
In other news of Last Week, a week that will live in infamy, I realized that, even though my doctor told me it was really important to come back in six months to re-check my cholesterol levels and see if I need some sort of medication to keep me, you know, alive, it's been almost a year since I totally listened to him say that and took every word to heart. Good thing you don't really need a heart to live, right? Geez.
The only good thing I managed to do Last Week was work in a walk after the Pasta Gluttony and before the movie portion of the date (my husband and I are very adventurous on the dates: dinner, movie. We like to think outside the box.). The bad news is that it's surprisingly hard to hustle and get a good brisk walk going when you a) are full of sub-par pasta, and b) have a desperate need to mock the emo teenagers who think they are hard core hanging out in down town Boise of all places. It's hard to mock and gasp for breath at the same time. Someone should look into that. Snarky people need to work out, too.
So that was my week. How was your' s? Do you waste calories on anything edible, or do you insist on some level of tastiness? Do you know of some revolutionary exercise technique that would allow me to snark and work out at the same time? Have you thought of patenting it?

I'm bringin' cranky back...

Yeah, those other curmudgeons don't know how to act...
I know I've been neglecting you guys horribly, and I'm sorry. I wish I had a good excuse for it, but I just don't. Lately a lot of things have converged to overwhelm me, and I've been feeling very discouraged with myself, with my goals, with people, and life in general. I didn't want to bring you guys down with all of my whining, but then I realized that this blog is for sharing exactly those kinds of feelings, soooo, get ready for some cranky! Well, not right now, but in the near future, I'm sure.
Anyway, enough about me, how have you been doing during my hiatus? Any breakthroughs, victories, obstacles, or new goals to share?
This week, for me, is honestly just about getting my head above water and I'm pretty desperately hoping to achieve even close to that...
