Rolls and Rants

I’m sitting at my desk, a wee bit stressed out because my big event is only a month out now and it’s crunch time. RSVPs are NOT coming in like they’re supposed to and it’s ticking me off. I snapped at a lady downstairs who was trying to prepare a briefing note and was asking me questions like I’ve been running the event for years. Sorry sweetie, but you’ve been here for years, not me, and you brought up a briefing note that had information on it that was at least five years old. YOU should know more than ME. So I’m scratching moles on my neck, trying to rip my skin off apparently, and I just happened to look down at my stomach. Why I did that, I don’t know. Because apparently MY abdomen has been replaced with my old one. And this isn’t because I’m slouching in my chair or anything. My arms look bigger, my muffin top is showing and the bakery is going out of business because I have all of its goods stuffed in clothes. What. The. Eff. Part of me gets a knee-jerk reaction to lean-cuisine it up in an effort to lose weight, but then the other part wants to give that part a swift kick in the box for being a ditz. Frankly, my whole brain needs an ass kicking for being lazy lately and my lack of efforts are showing as I'm smuggling an entire bread basket in my shirt. So… No more baking treats when I’m bored. Yes, that’s right. I’ve been making cookies and banana bread when I’m bored. Why? WHY NOT? I figure it’s better than going to the store and buying chocolate. Yeah, good plan, Mouse. PFFFFFFFT. Does that stop me from going to the store….UH, NOOOOO. Do I still eat a healthy lunch and a good dinner? YEAH. In fact, I had a big bowl of broccoli and baby carrots at lunch today and got mocked for it. WHAT THE BLOODY HELL? Ass – consider yourself kicked. Now get yourself out of your office chair and to the gym. But first, go make those photocopies. You have shit to do because you decided to write this blog instead. Asshat. ***update**** Having a sports bra in your gym bag would have helped you at the gym. You need a new brain. SERIOUSLY.

I hear ya on the baking/boredom thing...lately my neighbors and husband love me because they get all the stuff I don't want sitting around!!!! um...that doesn't always help though...then I just get mad for them eating my junk...

for me it is baking + boredom PLUS a whiny toddler easily distracted by baking treats (ostensibly for friends, but you know how that goes).

that said, I have to say I still LOVE this post.
you crack me UP.

You totally crack me up. You also are an amazing person who knows when to kick yourself in the ass when necessary. That is very admirable. K thats the end of my love poem for you haha.

I bake whenever I am bored or stressed. And then I eat it...not good. I have to stop buying flour.

*KICK*

You're a runner.

You have the mental stamina to endure long runs. Not anyone can do that and it doesn't just apply to hitting the pavement. You HAVE the mental stamina to kick yourself back on track.

That is the difference.

***KICK***

I thought I'd join in the fun. AND, if you've been snacking on baked goods, you deserve it. Love ya.

Mouse- I'm all for the self ass-kicking! Sometimes you just have to get yourself back in gear because no one else is going to do it for you. But give yourself a tiny break because at least you are doing it before you have a serious backslide. Next time you get the urge to bake, lace up the sneaks and hit the pavement. And hang tough. We've all been there!

I wasn't asking for others to kick me, thanks.

Lay off.

Xenia said...

Baked goods are my downfall as well. I feel your pain.
