Things I Did This Week Instead of Exercise:


Became a vegetarian for at least four days.


Sang Foo Fighter's Everlong on Expert,
in the original register,
got 100%,
Altering my life forever with awesomeness
(Calories burned: 50--I'm a performer.)


Sang Foo Fighter's Everlong on Expert, got 100%, while nursing the baby (Calories burned: 200)

Drove my car really fast (had to take my BPM on that one, 140.)

Ate no breakfast (Calories burned: 60)

Ate plenty of lunch (Calories burned: I don't want to talk about it.)

Stayed up all night for three nights with baby (Calories burned: 175)

Got a fierce hug from the baby for snatching him out of his crib when he cried (Calories burned: 4,000,000--my heart nearly exploded into a supernova.)

Read To Kill a Mockingbird and loved it way more than I remembered (Calories burned: -300) (Easter candy.)

Hit refresh ON MY OWN BLOG to check for new content (Calories burned: 2)

Did not fall asleep in a meeting even though I got to sit in the beanbag chair (Calories burned: 10. Mostly from sketching with lots of cross-hatching and poking Ben to make sure he didn't fall asleep. I have responsibilities.)

Complained about Glenn Beck (Calories burned: 5)

Only yelled at the radio once (Calories burned: 1)

Watched Grey's Anatomy (Calories burned: 600--that was hot.)

Broke a heel on my favorite mary janes and had to walk like my toe was broken again (Calories burned: 34)

Ate one Reese's Peanut Butter Egg and one Mint 3 Musketeers (from Famous Jay's candy sinkhole) to heal the extreme emotional pain of both breaking my shoes and revealing to my coworkers that I am awfully short. (Calories burned: -250)


Like, really short.


I think I need another spoonful of sugar.

I'm SOOO EXCITED to be #1 responder! You usually have a bazillion comments already by the time I get here because you're very popular. One day maybe I'll be as popular as you. Loved the -300 because of the Easter candy.

But ... which was the life-changing event? (I hope I don't expose my not-with-it-ness by not recognizing the life-changing among the merely life-affirmning.)

This morning I thought about exercising. What I did instead: sprinted up the stairs (!) numerous times to fetch numerous handful(s) of chocolate chips from the freezer. It almost counted.

Anne-Marie said...

If it's any consolation, I exercised, actually ran 2-3 miles 5 days last week and gained .3 lbs.

Exercise is overrated.

The beanbag chair during a meeting? Are you the employee of the month? How did you score that one?

Amen to the Grey's Anatomy hotness. . .

Nancy Sabina said...

If only hugs from sweet crying babies really did burn calories... (I could dream about that all night!)

Geo said...

Your blog helps the medicine go down, my friend.

Shawn said...

Heh, heh----such a hoot you are, my dear. I actually walked the mall for two hours today, so I'm waaaaayyy ahead of you!

liz said...

congrats on the 100%. I am still working my way into the 40th percentile. it's a sad state of affairs at my house that way. someday......

kiki said...

You are such a tease, you whore! Do you know how long I've been waiting to get to a computer to check to see what the life-changing thing was?! I'm so unsatisfied right now (but not as unsatisfied as I was with the BSG finale. It was horrible.).

Marie {Make and Takes} said...

Hahahaha! Love your week. I totally hit the refresh button on my own blog and somehow think there'll be surprise content!!

And I think because Easter candy sells like 3 months ahead of time, it's fat free until the actual holiday!

famousjay said...

Sweetie, your height is not awful. I think it's adorable. I've always been jealous of the shorter girls. More guys to choose from. ;)

I hope you didn't break the heels on your favorite shoes.

I'd love for you to stop by the sinkhole more often. :)

Crap-darn-it$%#*(*&@!! I could have burned 600 calories by watching that scene?!! (It was toooo hot for me which is weird because usually nothing is too hot for me, i had to avert my eyes like a 12 year old scared of cooties.)

Cafe Johnsonia said...

I want to know what you're eating for breakfast that's only 60 calories.

amelia said...

YOU SING ON EXPERT? WHILE NURSING? I am so incredibly impressed.

(P.S. Good meeting you today!)

Stephanie said...

i seem to burn WAAAAAAY more calories complaining about glenn beck. (at least 30) something about the fist slamming and increased breath rate...

Veeda said...

oh man, reese's peanut butter egg are so great. also, i didn't realize you really are a hardcore rock band fan. 100% on expert? On everlong? while nursing? this gives me reason to worry about our challenge.
