2 Weeks

Is 2 weeks long enough to lose 15 lbs? Probably not. You see, my vacation is in a little less than 2 weeks, and I really wanted to be at my goal weight for this one. It's also my 34th birthday, but I'm ok with being only 2,190 days away from 40, really. I probably should have started trying to lose this 15 lbs long ago, and now that I think of it I did. I actually started trying to lose this 15 lbs in 2002, after Jack was born. Hmmmmm, you'd think in 6 years I would have made a dent. Actually I did make a small dent. I started out wanting to lose 20 lbs, I changed the goal and now it's down to 15 lbs. Soon I will change it to 10, then maybe 7 and before you know it I will be at goal. I will then probably celebrate with some Chinese Food (Diet Killer!) or a giant Pesto Calzone . . yum.

So, I dusted off my old "Slim in 6" DVD and popped it in. 58 minutes of sweating my ass off, while the kids either tried to do it with me (a comical effect) or sat on the couch eating microwave popcorn watching me like they were at some weird live stage production of "Mommy The Red Faced and Sweaty Monster." Actually, I skipped over a few parts. I mean, for over the first 20 minutes it was all lower body work, is there really a need to lay on the floor and do 10 minutes of even more leg work. I don't want to be an overachiever. And the 10 minutes of ab work, who am I kidding. I can barely do a sit-up. So that pared it down to 38 minutes. You would think the stretching/yoga portion (8 minutes) would be nice, but yoga is HARD. Mountain Pose, Downward Dog, Dead on the Floor . . . oh wait, I think only I was doing that position.

Why is it so hard? What's that you say? Eat less and exercise more and I will see results? What??? It can't be that simple yet so unbelievably ridiculously hard. So, I will valiantly try to do this stupid, I mean effective, DVD with this skinny bitch, I mean motivating beautiful woman, 6 days a week. You see, you are supposed to do it 6 days a week for 6 weeks, that's the Slim in 6 part of the title, get it? But I think doing most of it for like 4 days a week for 2 weeks oughta do it.

Oh Dunk, I am NO inspiration, believe me. I only talk the talk, but you will walk the walk. I will be happy if I lose like 5 or so. Anyway, that South Beach diet looks HARD. And I just ordered a Julianne Salad! :-)
