August 6th

Today I ate like crap.

I had a Sausage McGriddle from Mcdonalds for breakfast that I swear is laced with exotic drugs. It’s 11 points. I think I am going to start a August resolution starting now. No more Sausage McGriddles. I actually just Googled Sausage McGriddle and saw that people eat those things with egg and cheese, in addition to the sausage and pancake bread bun thingy. I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel good about myself due to the fact that I am only eating the Sausage McGriddle sans eggs & cheese. HAHAHAHA I am pathetic.

Here’s some great news that made me feel special in my heart valves. At my work we have employee of the month which is voted upon by all of the staff at our organization. You don’t have to vote for anyone so getting a nomination is pretty cool if it happens because that means someone went out of their way to vote for you. I didn’t win which was to be expected considering this is my 2nd month on the job BUT I found out that I got a few votes so I was in the running this month 🙂 That actually felt like a win to me. It was really nice knowing people thought of me enough to write into the head of our HR department to tell her that they think I am doing an awesome job. When I heard that I got a few votes I swear my insides felt like this

I didn’t go to the gym today because I have mosquito bites ALL over my legs and feet from when I was in Indiana over the weekend. It is wildly painful to walk and it’s all swollen and disgusting.  I actually Googled “Why do I get bite more than other people” because I always feel like I do. I came up with some good answers in this interesting article. Here is the synopsis:

People get bite by mosquitos more than other people because they:

  1. Have a higher body temperature than other people around them. Could be possible. I do run hot. 
  2. Are pregnant thus excreting more carbon dioxide into the air. Nope. I am not pregnant. 
  3. Are you drunk and outside? You might be getting eaten alive due to the rise in your body temperature due to the drinking. Possible, I was drinking a delicious St. Louis Framboise but in no way was I drunk. 
  4. You have blood type O: This blood type permeates a specific smell that attracts mosquitos more so than any other blood type. Not me, I am B negative.

After work I went and hung out with my brother. Here we are now:

This was taken a longgg time ago when my brother was living in Spain and I went to go visit him. I have always loved this picture for some reason.

and here we are again…

and againnnnnnnnnnn. This is actually the most recent. I got to see him get sworn in by the judge at his new job as an awesome lawyer.

and now here is our dad when he was in his early twenties. WTF is happening here?! AWESOME THINGS ARE HAPPENING, THAT’S WHAT!

and here is my dad present day acting like a weirdo while playing his beloved airplane game. My dad rules.

Are you still with me? I didn’t completely bore you by taking you down “family lane” on the pictorial highway that you didn’t ask to be on. Cool.

My brother and I went to a place called The Counter for dinner where you build your own burgers and what not. It’s delicious. We shared the fries and I ordered two mini sliders and I ate half of the bread. I have no clue how many points I ate today but it is not feeling like I kept on track with things. It’s ok though. I enjoyed myself and I don’t feel bad about things. Tomorrow is a new day.

I am exhausted so I think I’m going to head off to Zzzzzzzzzzz land. Good night everyone! XOXOXO

Tonight I blogged to a song that I described to my friend Tommy as “if my soul made a song it would be this song.” He told me that when he listened to it, it made him feel calm. I laughed thinking that my soul, of all souls probably would not make anyone calm but I did like the thought of it. So here it is. This song rules and one of my goals is to hear this played live one day. It will happen…oh yes, it will happen. “A Dream Within a Dream” by The Glitch Mob

Hey You! Welcome to my blog, I am happy you stopped by and I hope my struggles make you laugh a little bit....wait, what?....Anywho, this is my weight loss blog where I will be 100% honest and real about my struggles in losing some weight and more importantly, keeping it off. Most people that know me say I am funny (hence, the title of this blog) so I guess the twist is the fact that I am going to be completely candid about how much losing weight can be really tough/hard/awful/daunting/boring, yet eventually amazing and totally worthwhile. Hopefully through my vulnerability and candidness, I help inspire others to lose some weight and stay motivated.
