In the Throes of Woes...

Thursday, August 9, 2007

Woe #1:
I've gained 10 pounds in 3 months. I feel fat and need to do something about it. I don't exercise and eat out (like a pig) everyday. Winter's coming soon and I just bought a ton of new clothes for the fall and winter. I HAVE to do something about this.

Solution: I've thought about running or biking to work instead of driving. This way, I'll get in a work out and curb my eating at the same time. Without a car, I'll be forced to bring my lunch to work. The lunch I bring would be healthy. I've also downloaded a calorie counter to my blackberry. I need to get a handle on this...and fast. I refuse to negate my hard work.

----------------------------------------------------

Woe #2: I'm dating two people right now. One in Washington, one in Baltimore. The cost of dinner, gas, other miscellaneous expenditures (and a number of other concerns) is making the DC option less attractive.

Solution: Dump the zero, keep the hero?

----------------------------------------------------

Woe #3: I spend...a lot. Too much. It's actually getting out of hand and downright irresponsible.

Solution: I know I need to curb my spending, but I don't know how to prevent myself from spending my money.

Calorie counter...maybe that's what I need. Where can I get one?

My calorie counter has been the waistline on my pants! I gained 8 pounds in just three weeks before my vacation - needless to say, they will be coming off NOW! Don't fret...it's an up and down thing...just don't let it get over about 10 pounds or the poundage seems too difficult to tackle.
Don't let distance alone knock-out the DC candidate. Better to drive a little further for quality than be stuck in Baltimore with the REAL zero.
You actually have your fall/winter wardrobe together?!?! I wish I could get my act together like that!

Darius - I just googled "calorie counter for Blackberry", downloaded the program, and uploaded it to my Blackberry. It's helpful, but the real calorie counter ought to be in my head.

Cocoa - I'm not really stressing too much, but I wanna nip this shit in the bud before it gets out of hand. Last summer, I was losing up to 5 pounds a week, so I know I can get it off, but its time to kick start phase two of my weight loss process. I'd like to lose an additional 20 pounds and tone everything in the process. I'm trying to look as good as you when I get half nude on the beach. :-)

Oh, and the Bmore guy is the hero. DC is the zero. He was effectively dropped last night.

Drop the zero baby, drop him! But shit I hear B'more nikkas are mad stank so hell, drop them both! lol

Mr. Jones said...

kennon - He lives in Baltimore, well, White Marsh which is just outside of Baltimore. He's originally from North Carolina.

I agree with you tho.
