Random Thoughts, Late at Night

1. I was in Walmart the other day and passed a display of scarf and glove sets. The packaging read, "Set of two, gloves and scarf." Um, shouldn't that be a set of three? Or do you only get one glove?

2. I've decided that if we have any more sons, we're going to forget the whole "teaching the proper anatomical term" nonsense and just refer to it as Body Part #37. This way, when he decides to shriek about it in public, oh, say, in the grocery store, what he'll say will be, "Mom! (My brother) just bonked me on my Body Part #37!" instead of the other, more embarrassing alternative.

3. We were in a parking lot tonight and saw a darling little Japanese toddler bend down and touch the snow with one finger, obviously entranced by it. He was so entranced, he had to commit the moment to memory by using the taste method, the time-honored method used by all toddlers everywhere. Before his horrified mother could stop him, he'd popped a whole chunk of dirty, muddy, tire-marked snow in his mouth. Turns out that "What do you think you're doing? Spit that out!" sounds the same in any language.

4. I've lost four pounds doing the Body-for-Life program this week (yes!) but I'm sorry to say, I got sidetracked tonight. I came down with a killer headache and nausea thing (no, I didn't eat the muddy snow too) and had to resort to Ibuprofen and Coke. That will probably set me back a bit, but I have to say, getting off this first four pounds has felt so good. I can do it! It is possible!

And now I'm going to bed. Good night.

Anybody wanna come help me clean my house tomorrow? I'm having company on Sunday and I'm nowhere near ready ...

Congrats! on the pounds that are missing!! This is terrific.

Also, being a mother of girls, I got a good chuckle out of body part #37. I've never thought of that happening in the grocery store or out in public. LOL! I think I'll stick with girls -- I just tend to lose them in the clothing and jewelry departments. They get so busy looking at things and end up wandering off!

I admire you for trying to lose weight over the holidays! I gave up my efforts and will start again Dec. 26. OK, maybe the 27th because I need to eat leftovers the day after. :-)

Body part #37! That's hilarious.

Tristi,

How exciting about Body for Life! I did it last summer for about 60 days, and it really worked for me. Fell off the wagon, went back to square one, and got back on this month. And I've lost 10 lbs so far. :D

Good luck and keep going! (And sorry about the incident with Body Part #37. I had a similar incident with #14, but we won't go there.) :)

What interesting thoughts. Congrats on the 4 pounds off. I'm looking forward to 3 weeks from now when I have this baby and instantly lose about 10-15 pounds. Then I get to work on the rest of it. Can't wait.

Woohoo! I'm happy for you, Tristi. I did Body for Life a few years ago and had more success with it than any other diet program I've tried. Currently, I'm doing the Flat Belly Diet, since I'm blogging about it for Prevention Magazine. I've lost about 13 pounds so far.

ROFL!!! Toddlers are the same sweet curious bundles everywhere. =)

CONGRATS on the weight loss! That's wonderful!

I'd love to hear more about Body-For-Life as I know nothing about it. Is it a diet?
