Reading Till My Eyes Hurt and Other Stuff

I know I've been neglecting my blog the past few days but it's been for a good cause. I recently discovered Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series. I am.....well....obsessed. I can't put it down. I am pathetic I know. I've even managed to drag a few co-workers into the "book club".

I know I'm late to the game, but better late then never right? I want to be done with the last 2 before the movie comes out on November 21st. It's like Harry Potter all over again...but with a darker twist.

In other news, because of the reading I have completely ignored my "training" and have not worked out since I ran the 5K on Friday. I feel myself getting fatter as I type.

So at work, in an effort to get the Air Force fatties back into shape, they have launched a 10,000 step challenge. They had this extra cool machine that measured our height, weight, BMI and body fat percentage all in a few seconds. Yeah. I don't know if that was such a good idea for me. I mean, yeah it is cool to get the pedometer and challenge each other at work to see who can get the most steps in a day (I'm totally winning with yesterday totalling 12, 239 steps) but I really really didn't need to know that my BMI is 1 number away from being overweight and my body fat % is not excellent, not good, not even average, but POOR. WTF! I can't believe this shit! I knew I needed to get into better shape but damn! They also were nice enough to point out that out of my weight (which I am so not going to put on the Internet) 43.2 of them are fat pounds. Ugh!

So, maybe what I need to be doing is taking my apparently fat ass to the gym and dragging my book with me.

In motherly news, La is still struggling at school the week. While she dared not get another "blue" card, she has proceeded to bring her happy tail home with 2 "pink" cards in a row. Yup. I have become the wicked witch because this mama isn't going to budge. Apparently she is trying to break the world record on how long a 5 year old can be punished. Way to go La....NOT.


  1. Welcome to the Twilight Series...I too fell in obsessive love and all else around me stopped...I finished all f 4 in a month...can you say obsessive! I am even considering re- reading them and I never do that.

  2. I actually showed that picture to O this morning and we commented on how he DOES look like a vampire! When you are reading the twilight series you see vampires everywhere :)


Those laughing with me...or at me.
