As you may or may not recall, about a month and a half ago I was on this big ole kick where I was going to lose weight and exercise because Josh is going to be arriving here in Khartoum in November and I figured it would be nice if I were somewhat the same sized person I was when he left. However, then I got to Sudan and was left unattended and there were some boxes of Little Debbie's that arrived here, then the water started to shrink my clothes, and the Sudanese shove your face with food because they think fat chicks are hot here, so they tell me I need to eat. (I KNOW! You'd totally think I would appreciate this fact more, wouldn't you? Go figure!)
So now I have no idea whether or not I'm normal anymore because I've lost my frame of reference. It's not like I can just go into Ann Taylor or some other store and try on clothes that I figure are my size (which will never be spoken aloud, thank you very much!) to see if they still fit!!
So then I spoke to Josh last night and was like..."Oh, you'll be here soon, that will be so great. How much longer is it now? Three? Four weeks??"
Turns out, (and this may shock you all) November is about 2 weeks away. WTF!? When did this happen??
So now, since I can't really figure out what kind of damage I have done being unattended for the last 7 months or so, I just have to take a guess and assume I need to lose about 73 pounds in 2 weeks. Or maybe it was 23? With all these metric figures running around I have no idea what is needed.
So this morning I got up to exercise, I put on my clothes, got out my stuff, started up the iPod playing so that I would be all entertained -- and then I decided I needed coffee. So I made a pot of coffee -- because you can't just exercise when you're tired. It's EARLY.
So then as I was drinking my coffee I realized that I was supposed to make and bring garlic bread to the office today because we were having a going away lunch for a lady that was here temporarily working. So I got out all the stuff to make bread.
Then I remembered that you have to let the bread rise for like 1-2 hours before you bake it for another 30 mins or more and that it was 0630.
So then I put away all the stuff for bread and gathered up the stuff to make storebought bread into garlic bread and packed it for work.
Then I remembered that I was supposed to be exercising
Then I looked at the clock and it was now 0730 (obviously bread math takes me longer than the normal person to do) and that I needed to get ready for work.
Then I remembered that I had not written and blog or read anyone's blogs for a full week now and felt really guilty...SO here I am at my computer in my exercise gear writing this blog about how I am not exercising.
SOOOOO, my point is...It is pretty much all YOUR fault that I am going to be fat when Josh arrives.
Therefore, I'd really appreciate it if you would all write me a note to excuse my fattiness and remind Josh that he married me in Sickness and in Health (the sickness coming first to remind him that my inherent laziness is a sickness and needs medical help to cure me).
Thanks. I really appreciate it.
In return, I will try to be a better blogger. (I'm still lazy though. See the whole blog above. I probably can't be trusted... DOOY!)
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
