Thursday Thirteen #15

So it’s been over two weeks now that I haven’t worked out and I’m feeling it all over. I’ve been eating like a crazed person and watching some pretty great TV. Sounds great except I have gained 5-6 pounds that won’t be fun to work off later. Every day I hear the little nagging voice in my head telling me it’s time to get back to it and stop lounging around. So far I have quieted that sound by eating more to the point that I am so full I can’t work out. All I can do is sit and watch TV.

A few minutes ago I had a huge debate with myself about exercising and getting it over with or doing my Thursday 13 since it is in fact Thursday and half the day has all ready passed. Of course 13 seemed like a better option so I plopped myself down and got all ready and what do you know- Blogger sends back an offline error message.

Yes- a smart person would probably see this as an act of God telling me to get off my butt and workout, there are no other options. I’ve cleaned, paid my bills, the kids are sleeping…perfect opportunity- to watch last night’s recorded TV! Hooray for me!!!

I am not a smart person. I know this to be true. Don’t follow in my footsteps or I will probably lead you down the wrong path to glutoney and when you turn around you’ll find dog poop on your shoes. Yes, it has been that kind of day.

For my 13 I give you this list:

1. Don’t take the advice of strangers…they are in fact strangers!
2. Don’t listen to me either. I don’t know what I’m doing.
3. Count your kids shoes before leaving the grocery store. They have a clever way of kicking them off right before you pay and leave.
4. Chips when eaten by the bag full are so yummy and so crunchy.
5. Only bake the amount of frozen cookie dough you plan on eating at one sitting.
6. Listen to the voice in your head or you’ll pay for it later.
7. TT is good for rambling.
8. Just work out so you don’t have to write your own ridiculous post like this one.
9. Air freshener does not remove the stinky smell of a diaper gone wrong in your child’s bedroom, it just adds to the unpleasantry.
10. If you want to suffer from a hot flash, take your toddlers to Target and have them try on jeans. After the third pair you’ll break out into a sweat and wish you had just stayed home.
11. Plan ahead
12. Make a back-up plan for that plan
13. Watch TV. It feels right.

I've totally been there! And yes, watching tv does in fact "feel right" sometimes! Great post!

Wow! I am so impressed by all the words you fit into your post... mine completely pales in comparison:

Maybe when my girl is a little older, I'll have more time to devote to these, and to work out. LOL with you... :D

Sitting in my recliner with my laptop and with the TV on after the kids are in bed is something I look forward to all day long!
