TGIF I guess...

Did you see google today? It's the hungry hungry caterpillar! I love that book. I want the job of making up the google graphics. No, really I just want to be rich and rescue animals.

It's Friday. I have the blues. I had a non stellar evening with my manfriend and what sucks about that is I don't get to see him for days. And I have a hard time letting things be. My mind is working. Been that way all week.

My work week's been hectic, had a girl out all week just about. Been preparing for a presentation of our realignment. Which they had me do for a week, and then realigned again. By "they" I mean the man. You know. Corporate America. They can suck it.

I lost 2 more pounds which makes me happy. 67 total. Three more til 70. Statistically, I've lost more weight since leaving boot camp than I did while attending. The reason being, if I dont lose weight I know I will the next week. At boot camp I'm questioned about it, then I freak out and eat less, and don't lose weight again the next week. I don't handle pressure well where weight loss is concerned. I needed it to get me started again, but now I think until the next plateau I'm done with it. Plus, it leaves no time for me. And, costs a buttload of money. Which isn't in my "get out of debt in 2009 plan". Plus, she doesn't have a real scale. I'm just sayin.

67 Total (about 2 years)
29 since November
16 since leaving boot camp.

Funny thing is it's taken me this long to lose it and only recently have people been noticing. That's when you know you were really fat. It's true!

Oh yea, yesterday I went to work out later, so I had a different treadmill. You know, different crowd. The guy who came to workout by me asked "Do you want to watch Harry Potter?" while holding up a DVD. I said, "no thanks". He said He thought he'd ask. I guess it was kinda cute, since you have to share TV's at a ratio of 1 per 2 treadmills. I was watching another TV though.

I'm going to see Poison, Cheap Trick, and Def Leppard June 25! How fun is that? If I was a total nutcase, I'd get that pic of me and Bret michaels put onto a tshirt. But I'm not a total nutjob.

Do you get the notion that I am a man hater from reading my blog? I know its not my every day demeanor, and no one has said this to me before, but it came up. I think I do a great job not hating men considering men have pretty much tried to break me down, and use me since I started liking them. I don't treat men like they are all the same.

That same concert is coming here, too, but I only want to see Poison. I wish I could get a ticket for a 1/3 of the price if I leave after Poison.

A grown man wanting to watch Harry Potter at the gym? Haha, OK.

And I LOVE the hungry caterpillar! That totally made my morning yesterday. :-)

You are awesome with the weight loss! Did you notice that the more you work out, the more you eat? When I used to go to a gym it seemed like I was hungrier (I know, from burning more calories).

You're going to that concert on my birthday so you should have a birthday drink for me while you're there!
