The New Girl stole Fun Fact Friday from Tessie, and I love stealing things from The New Girl so it stands to reason that I would steal this from her too. Plus, I love sharing random facts about myself and my family. Aren’t you lucky?
* A friend and I once (read: a good ten years ago) used liberal amounts of green food coloring while making a yellow cake. We were trying to see if the cake would be less appealing if it was green. It wasn’t and I think about that cake all the time. And her oatmeal raisin cookies. I think about those all the time too.
* While we’re on the topic of dessert: The wife of the man who ran the horse riding camp I used to attend sometimes made us something she called Apple Snow. I’ve been meaning to get back in touch with them just to get the recipe. Is that weird? Is it weirder that I just looked him up to see if I could find their address and discovered that piano playing wasn’t just a little hobby to her. Dude, way to be a self centered teen brat. Now I’m even more shy about contacting them.
* I used to be able to read one or two books a week. That hasn’t happened since C was born and I discovered my love of writing. And yet I’m still acquiring books at the same rate. I have a lot of unread books. It causes me no end of stress and guilt whenever I pass my bookshelf.
Now on to Fit Friday!
Congratulations to the four people who participated in Fit Friday last week. The three of you who didn’t win last week, Faerie Mom, J at JellyJules, and Shere1, each win a box of Weight Watchers goodies. (You know, to be fair and all.) Email me at kikadesaATyahooDOTcom and I’ll mail them out to you post haste.
I’ve had the most ridiculously intense couple of days at work to which I attribute my weight loss success this week. Journaling? Not so much? Water drinking? Does tea count? I had lots and lots of that. But stress so intense that you don’t even want to stress eat? That does the trick!
Next week? More stress, more drinking water and an attempt at more physical activity, be that dancing around the kitchen with the kids or talking short walks at work.
How about you? What are you going to do next week?
