Couch v. Sidewalk: 7-0 Couch
Example of Self-Loathing Induced Insanity:
Eating a (gigantic) bowl of ice cream after seeing a recent photo and getting upset over my weight. Why do I eat junk when I'm depressed? IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE. And yet, I DO IT ANYWAY.
This is my (gorgeous, healthy-eating, triathlete) friend Kathryn and I at the Krewe du Lac Royal Ball a couple of weeks ago. Guess which lady is the triathlete. I'm the other one.
Hanging out with Kathryn at the ball was SO MUCH FUN. But this picture made me go... A) I'm glad I have such a bad-ass friend and B) Holy Moly, I need to lose this f*ing weight.
So, for the 1,579th time in my life I have decided that I AM going to lose weight again. And I've enrolled Eric in this plight as there is no way that I will stick to my newly committed healthy habits without his participation. A week ago I told him that we will now be taking a walk every evening. To which he (probably with his fingers crossed behind his back) said okay.
Couch vs. Sidewalk record: 7-0 Couch
Did I mention that our couch reclines? It does. And it's super comfy. And it's great for reclining in while eating gigantic bowls of ice cream. What it is not, is conducive weight loss. What it really needs is an eject button.
