Jugs & Milkshakes

Quite the predicament, no? You know the one. It’s this wonderful frothy mixture that you know must have been sent down to us from Zeus in a spontaneous moment of insane kindness for us mere mortals. Mortals with a serious weakness for sweet decadence. [Yes, the apple has come full circle.] Chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch, vanilla creme….there are so many splendid flavor combinations to indulge those cravings and well – who doesn’t love sipping…

How Many Licks?

Listen to this, ya’ll! I think I’m finally over the “ooh-I-can-totes-snarf-down-another-frappuccino” to make it through my day. Those cravings. Yeah – you have them too! Don’t lie.Don’t get me wrong, usually I want a salad or veggies more than anything else.

Goals

I managed to sleep most of my day away because of a migraine that decided to assault me this afternoon. Jerk!My dreams during that blissful [4 hour] nap were…wonderful. It was like my whole year unfolded and things clicked into place. Maybe the migraine was strangling just the right neurons. Maybe. Regardless of the cause, I now know what I want to do:1. Lose 50 pounds by April 23. – This is…

Panties & Prologues

I dropped two more pounds this week.  Work it, ya’ll! Woo-freaking-HOO! Only a few more pounds before these panties start sliding their way down my fabulous derrier. Which, I might add, never seems to lose its shape. Does anyone else have that problem? I guess it’s not really a problem, except when you’re in between sizes and the skinny cow pulling your jeans off the rack can’t seem to understand…
