First off, I overslept by two and a half hours...not that my alarm didn't ever go off, because it most definitely did. I distinctly remember hitting what I thought was the snooze button, at 5:50 this morning. So, imagine my surprise when I finally did come to after what felt like 10 minutes, wondering why my alarm hadn't gone off again, to see my clock saying 8:20...NOOOOOO!!!
You see, most mornings it wouldn't be such a big deal, but I was a complete and utter idiot for scheduling my annual exam the Monday after the Fourth of July weekend. (I mean seriously, who does that??) So I had to be functional and actually presentable for this lovely appointment that I had scheduled for 9:30.
Well, that meant that I couldn't get in my workout this morning, I wouldn't have time for my coffee, and I knew that I had to shave my legs. Because let's face it, the last thing I wanted my doc staring at was my prickly cactus legs...plus I was dropping M off at a girlfriend's because there was no way in heck I was taking "the tornado" to that appointment! This meant I only had 30 minutes to get showered, shaved, face painted, hair styled, wrangle a toddler and head out the door.
Well, I ran around like a chicken with my head chopped off, but we made it out the door by 9...I sped to my girlfriend's, dropped M at the door, then sped to the doc, and pulled in the parking lot at 9:28...two minutes to spare!! So I was feeling pretty good at that point.
My name was called right away, they take me back, and I forgot that the first thing they do is weigh you. Well son of a b! I haven't weighed myself in over a month because I decided to break up with my scale (you can read about that in this post here). Needless to say when it stopped at 134.0 (since the last time I weighed myself I was 130) I was a teensy bit upset. It didn't help that I wasn't caffeinated, and hadn't eaten anything yet, so I couldn't rationalize the fact that I was probably retaining a bunch of water from all of the salt filled foods and drinks from the past four days!!
|Right after the "weigh in" and before the nurse came in to do her deeds before the doc. My feelings on this fine Monday morning.|
|I definitely am in need of a pedicure...|
Oh, phew!! Praise little baby Jesus! "Um, oh yeah! I have a coconut body spray that I wear in the summer time..." Wow. Talk about awkward!
Anyway, he finished up, I got dressed and left. Thank goodness you only have to do that once a year...
Needless to say, by the time I picked up M, got home and prepared lunch it was 12:00 and I was about ready to eat my arm off, I was so hungry. I demolished my sandwich, some broccoli and hummus and a peach. But I was still starving. So then I said screw it and this happened:
|No, I didn't eat all of those...we had a couple friends over last night for dinner and we had brownie sundaes for dessert. So, the pan was already 1/4 gone...but I truly had to restrain myself from polishing off the entire pan!|
Until next time...
