(144 pounds – 81 pounds lost) Eight Days a Week

by Christine on June 16th, 2010

filed under Christine's Life Updates, General Information

WTFGood morning Revolutionists!  Today I have several fragmented thoughts to share with you:

Autograph Giveaway
Perhaps it’s because I only have like one and a half regular blog followers, but I think I only got one “yay” response to an autograph giveaway contest. Is anyone else interested? Let me know by leaving a comment. This is one autograph that is free as a bird for you! Yes it is!

Clothing Giveaway
I’ve gone through fourteen sizes of clothes since starting this weight loss journey. Damn, that’s expensive! I’d love to help! others defray the cost of their own weight loss journey. I would be happy to give some of my clothes away. I haven’t been able to mentally let them all go, but I can certainly let sizes 16-22 go. If you’d be interested in a box of clothes in any sizes from 16-22, let me know. I’ll try to post pictures of some clothing items at some point. A special package from me to you!

Statistics
I’m working on putting some food journals up on the website. I thought that would be helpful if someone could see, “Hey, she lost 2 pound that week…let me see what she ate” and have the ability to open up a spreadsheet of my food.  It’ll be a snapshot — a day in the life of Christine. I dunno, it was a thought.  So in my effort to put these food journal spreadsheets together, I also took my most recent stats. They are very exciting and helps to remind me how far I’ve come on this journey so far! (Note to self: I’m not a walrus!)

Bad Day
Yesterday I had a really bad day at work. A real hard day’s night. It reminds me that there’s no such thing as a perfect job (not that I thought that this one was…I should have known better), but the issue yesterday was such that it’s going to happen again, and the issue is most likely to escalate. My boss even asked me to spend a few hours wasting time putting together all the emails and drafts of this technical report that had gone back and forth in order for me to protect myself and back myself up.  That’s just bad news, and it’s going to do nothing except create a he said/she said situation, cause animosity between co-workers, and just be nasty plain and simple. Misery. Someday I’ll get my dream job and be a full-time paperback writer and let all this be behind me!

To make myself feel better, I went shopping after work! Nothing like retail therapy to make a woman feel better! However, that meant that I avoided the gym. But hey, I have a cute hat and a squeaky clean car now….that’s worth something, right?

Beatles!
Ten bonus points for any reader that has made a connection with the red words on the page today….they are all names of Beatles songs! I’m a huge Beatles fan, and tonight I get to go to a Beatles tribute band concert.  My hubby gave me tickets for Christmas, and we just now get to go!  I can’t wait!

    I would be happy to take some off clothes off you. LOL A mixture of 16-20 would be fabulous. :)

    Would the autograph be your choice or the winner’s?

    I think it would be neat to see “A Day in the Life of Christine’s Pouch”.

    Sorry about the work bullsh*t.

    Hope you have a better day today!

    Sorry to hear about the struggle at work…sounds like a tough situation, getting worse. But it will work out once you go through the steps. Glad you enjoyed that Beatles Tribute concert. I saw McCartney perform recently…I like him, but it was sad. He just can’t replicate the old sound, but it sounds like he’s trying to hold on.

    • http://www.phoenixrevolution.net Christine

      You saw Paul McCartney? I’m so jealous! I’ve never gotten the chance to see him! Sorry to hear he’s not quite the musician he used to be. My brother is a musician and has some very well-connected friends. My bro was home for Christmas just hanging out and doing nothing when he got a call from his friend…they were at Neil Young’s house jamming in the living room and apparently Paul McC came by to say hi and so he sat down to play with them a little too. My bro totally could have been there and missed the opportunity! CRY!!!
