I worked out two days in a row, so it should be a big one. Mandatory attendance by the whole town.
My waist and abs are sore, so someone will need to bring a big Snoopy balloon. Intentionally sore abs always call for big Snoopy balloons.
And because I kept my carbs down today despite wanting to cry, someone should definitely pelt me with candy I won't eat. I just want to smell the sugar. I'll just smell it...I promise.
I'm in the phase of weight loss where I don't see what the point is (even when I know full well what the point is). I know I have to lose weight for my own health, but my sugar addiction is still firmly in control of my world. I feel like I'm breaking up with a friend, and I hate doing that, especially a friend that brings me beautiful breads and sweets and fizzy drinks whenever I'm stressed.
I'm in that place where every little, teeny-tiny, ridiculous baby step needs a reward to keep me motivated. And since my go-to reward is usually food based (and my food is usually carb based), I'm kind of stuck.
So someone needs to throw me a parade. Yesterday. You don't even KNOW how serious I am.

"Since I began reading The Mother Load my hair is full of bounce and shine, my teeth are whiter, there are no more unsightly stains on my carpet, my towels are fluffier, and my vegetables come out in perfect slices every time.
