You know how when you have 8000000000 things to do, including 800000000 things of homework, but instead you sit in front of the computer staring at cute animal pictures for 3 hours and get nothing done!? Welcome to my world… but darnit if that cat riding the donkey weren’t cute!
I’m in the midst of participating in the DietBet extravaganza, where I put money into a pot with a bunch of other participants and then work to lose 4% of my body weight in a month! What was I thinking!? Actually, I have to say… if you’re a cheap wad like I am, this is the best kind of motivation. Ain’t no way I’m gonna be losing 50 precious bucks to some stranger in Maryland, so darn tootin’ I’m going to be sticking to that eating/exercise plan like Bieber Fever fans in front of the courthouse. I will always refuse to call it a “die”t because those don’t work. It’s calorizing… less calories in… more calories burned with exercise. End of story.
I’ve been impressed at my willpower the last 2 weeks… it’s been as strong as a…. uhhhh… thing that is strong. I’m having trouble stringing thoughts together in this brain of mine tonight… so pretend like I’m being all eloquent and queenly and such when in reality Beavis wrote this here post. It pays to be frugal!
In the meantime, this is old news since it happened on Tuesday of this past week and in this day and age something’s old news before someone famous gets arrested. Did anyone watch The Biggest Loser finale? I have to admit I didn’t watch this season. I watched the first episode and then I watched the finale because it’s always fun to see what the contestants look like after weight loss. This particular season finale has been wrought with controversy! The winner, Rachel, lost 60% of her body weight in just a few short months’ time. She went from one extreme, overweight to the other extreme, underweight.
This was Bob and Jillian’s (2 of the 3 trainers) reactions when she first came out.
She admitted that all she did from the time she got home from the ranch until the day of the finale was do cardio exercise 24/7. I guess no one can blame her, though. The premise of this show is jacked up. Some competetive people will go to all sorts of extremes to win a quarter of a million dollars when it’s dangled in front of them. I can’t imagine, since her weight loss happened over the course of a few months, that it was in any way healthy weight loss, but she has her a quarter of a million dollars now… so that’s all that matters… right?
It’s kind of like they trade one addiction (food) for another (extreme exercise). I wish her the best. She seems like a sweet girl and I hope she has many years of happy in her new body.
Question of the Day: Did anyone watch the Biggest Loser finale? Thoughts?
PS – If you are reading this, my friend, Audrey… I just wanted you to know that I am sending you thoughts and prayers and hugs during this difficult time. I’m sorry for your loss and hope you will be surrounded by those you love. Take care, sweet lady.
