After my 6 pound weight gain last month between my two doctors appointments, I've been making a serious effort to get in control of what's going on with me and the monster belly. I've even considered stop taking the medicine so I'll start throwing up again regularly, although I'm still managing to do that more frequently than I'd like. Which begs the question "how do you purge regularly and still gain weight???"
Answer me that and I'll buy you a pony.
Today was Day 2 of walking at the mall with Squish. She was not a happy stroller occupant this morning and the trail of raisins she left behind is all the proof you'll need. We managed to get in 45 minutes which wasn't too shabby but the theatrics I put on to get that much done was Oscar worthy.
The only thing that made my journey enjoyable was the new IPOD my sweet husband bought me for Christmas. (Aren't you proud of me Marilyn and Danyelle???) It is the snappiest device of all time and I love it so. I'm not so great at working it however which is hilarious but I'm completely serious. After I had taken it off and turned it off, or so I thought, I returned to the car 1 hour and 45 minutes later to realize it was still playing. Yep, I'm a moron. But a happy, walking, theatrical, weight-stabilizing moron at that.
I've even made friends with some of the mall regulars who smile and wave and tell me how beautiful Squish is, which is fun for me and even more fun for Squish. She has the over 70 crowd wrapped around her finger.
If anyone would like to join me, I'll be there every Mon/Wed/Fri at 9. I'm the one with the mondo-belly shoving raisins in my ADD child's lap.
