January @ 91 ~ March @ 101

I caught a third generation funk back in January, at least I think it was January. It traveled through Hayden and then through Chip, finally landing right inside my damn left nostril. I took my ass to the doctor and was told what I already knew. I had a sinus infection. I hurt like a sumbitch...my nose, my teeth, my ears, the side of head. If I go the rest of my life without another sinus infection I will be ecstatic!

All of this brings me to the fact that while I was at the doctor's office they weighed me. I weighed a hefty 91 pounds, clothed. Downer! Well, I left there thinking I'd clear up the sinus infection and then worry about my weight, or lack thereof.

The following weekend I hit the GNC store and bought some protein powder, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey in Extreme Milk Chocolate. I started out drinking two servings a day and am now down to one. I weighed myself last weekend and I topped out at 101 pounds, clothed. Somewhere over the course of seven or eight weeks I gained close to ten pounds.

I'm fucking thrilled!

Now if I can just get the extra weight to spread evenly across my body instead of just squatting right on my ass/hips/tummy mama area I'll be set.

What? What do you mean that's the secret to life?

Oh! I get it.

It's ON!

I caught a third generation funk back in January, at least I think it was January. It traveled through Hayden and then through Chip, and finally landed right inside my damn left nostril. I took my ass to the doctor and was told what I suspected. I had a sinus infection. My head hurt like a sumbitch...my nose, my teeth, my ears, my hair. If I go the rest of my life without another sinus infection I will be ecstatic!

All of this brings me to the fact that while I was at the doctor's office my weight was checked. I weighed a pitiful ninety one pounds, clothed! Damn it!! Downer!!! I left there thinking I'd clear up my sorry-ass sinus infection and then worry about my weight, or lack thereof.

The following weekend I hit the GNC store and bought protein powder, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey in Extreme Milk Chocolate, to be very exact. I've been drinking it (with whole milk) daily now for well over a month. I started out drinking two servings a day and am now down to one. I weighed myself last weekend and I topped out at 101 pounds, clothed! SHIT & NOT! Somewhere over the course of five to six weeks, maybe seven, I gained close to ten pounds.

Given that the only time I've weighed above one hundred and five pounds was when I was pregnant, I'm thrilled about this. Now, I just have to work at keeping the weight on and hopefully gaining at least ten more pounds. Seeing results this quickly really motivates me to buck up and guzzle down.

I'm Not Ready ~ That Much I Know

Yesterday I was cleaning the kitchen and Hayden was watching Handy Manny. I finished what I was doing and went into the living room. Hayden came over to me and this is the short conversation we had (word for word):

Hayden: "I want a tister."

Me: (dumbfounded, shaking my head, you know, to clear my ears...for I must not have heard her correctly) "What?"

Hayden: "I want a stister."

Me: (with hope in my eyes, because every child craves licorice, right) "You want a twizzler?"

Hayden: "No."

Me: (as if the words are being yanked from my core) "You want a sister?"

Hayden: "Yes!"

Me: (attempting to block out the laughter coming from behind the wall, Chip!) "Oh, oh, oh no!"

WHO? taught you that
WHAT? the hell
HOW? do you even know what a sister is
WHY? me
FUCK! she's only three
