RESOLUTIONS WORTH FIGHTING FOR:
1. Lose weight. Smirk all you want but if this happened to you, it would be your number one resolution as well:
Tonight we ate at dinner at my mother in laws. Present were my family and my brother/sister/mother in law (um, those are 3 separate people, not one crazy hybrid, btw).
Have I mentioned that my BIL played professional hockey and that my SIL played soccer for Team Canada in the 2008 Olympics in China?
Have I mentioned that um, I once received Most improved player on my women’s softball team?
Have I also mentioned that they are super sweet for never raising an eyebrow at the amount of food I shovel onto my plate? Partly it is because they are way too polite and partly it is because I tend to suck my gut in a lot around them.
So tonight’s incredible supper was salmon, shrimp, salad and asian tofu. Apparently when I am surrounded by healthy food, I am forced to eat copious amounts of it, thereby making it unhealthy – it’s a quirky little trick of mine So there was this combination – where I was busy sucking in my gut every time I walked past either of them – and trying to keep down a small ocean of fish in my belly.
So we leave – all is good, but by now my stomach starting to sound like a grade 7 band rehearsal and I’m a little shaky.
We arrive home and, desperate to um, let out a little bit of air from the tire – I excuse myself to go for a walk.
3 steps into the walk and relief must be had. All you must know about what happened next is that the release (um, ok the flippin FART!!) was so bad I thought I was going to have to go home and change my pants.
So, I dare you – after reading this – to tell me that losing weight is not an admirable goal this year??
