Fat Tuesday Vol. II

Yes, I’m still fat. I can’t believe I couldn’t lose all that weight in one week. Bummer!

Here’s how I did this past week. I did complete my challenge of working out six of the past seven days. I took Saturday off. I’m keeping track of my food and my exercise. I don’t know about pounds lost, because I don’t weigh myself all the time. I’m trying not to obsess about that part.

How did you do on your goals for the new year? I’m betting most people did well. January seems to be easy for most people because they have some kind of “it’s a new start momentum”. I’m predicting that February will be the hardest for me. Some of that momentum will be fading and the weather is not so great.

Here is my challenge for this week: Continue with the exercise and confront the soda pop demon.

Oh pop, how I love you! Why do you make my ass so big?

Before Christmas, I had myself down to maybe one pop a day. Which means there were days that I didn’t drink any at all! Now I’m back to one or two a day. I know that I won’t be able to achieve and maintain my goal with pop as a daily habit. But I also know that if I tell myself that I can never have it again, that will make me want it and obsess about it. So, I’m just trying to ween myself off of it. For me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s diet or real. If I’m drinking lots of pop, weight loss eludes me. Anybody else trying to get off pop? What do you call it, by the way? I’m from the middle of the country, so we say pop. I think the Northeast says soda. Lots of people in the south call it Coke, no matter what brand it is. It’s pretty funny to have someone say they want a Sprite Coke.

I know I said I was going to do a CSN giveaway today, but apparently the person who contacted me is having issues… So, I’m going to giveaway a $50.00 Amazon gift card!

To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me what you call pop and what part of the country or world you are from. One entry per person, please. I have no idea the scope of Amazon’s reach. So, if you can shop on Amazon, you can enter. Giveaway ends at 11:59PM CST, Thursday January 13th.

Amazon does not know who I am and they are not sponsoring this giveaway.
