I knew right away what it was when Coy handed it to me. The paper felt smooth and it was packed so tight. I wasn’t at all surprised by how big it was. This one sure was a fatty! I shouted, “My pot! My pot!” I couldn’t wait to fire it up! Coy knows just where to get the best pot in town. The kids were watching me with wide eyes, but they are much too young to handle this kind of pot. This is going to be the best pot we’ve ever had. And it’s French!
Yep, you guessed it. I got a new Le Creuset pot. The one I was wanting in their new blue color. I’m in love. The perfect gift for my collection. Having pretty stuff to cook with makes a world of difference. It’s the happiest cookwear on the planet. The guy who sold me my first pot in purple, told me this, “Now that you own a Le Creuset pot you must call it “Aubergine,” NOT purple.” I about died laughing. I know my blue pot has a name too, but for now it’s just “blue pot.”
So I’m completely humiliated by the fact that I started this blog almost two months ago and have actually gained weight. That is why I haven’t posted my weight in a while. Am just getting fatter. And the worst part about that is I’ve actually run almost every day for the past 2 weeks! Now, it’s C25K, not 3 straight miles of running, but about 2 miles of jog/walking a day. The food is my worst enemy but other than a piece of birthday cake the other night, I’ve TOTALLY cut way, way back on sugar. Carbs have still been in existence, but quite low and I’ve stopped eating bananas, which I love.
Sigh. Was hoping this blog would help others while I shed a few myself. Instead, it’s just a big, FAT, pity party. And I’m the only one who showed up. I’ve lost weight a hundred times before. Now it’s my mission to find out what the hell I’m doing wrong this time. Can stress really be a bigger culprit than I’d thought? Is it possible to do most things right but still have an ass the size of Texas?
People always tell me, “Don’t focus on losing weight, focus on being healthy.” Yeah, ok. As if I didn’t know that already. Everybody knows that. They are right though. But I’d still be running to the scale everyday to see if “eating healthy” has made me lose weight. Maybe the new pot will motivate me to cook up some healthy meals. Ok, off to bed now. CrossFit in 5 hours. Listen! Do you hear the violins playing? Those are for me, I’m not yet done wallowing at my pity party. Good night.
