Are you a shulmpadinka? I just watched the first ten minutes of Oprah (which I rarely watch these days) and her topic for the day is “shlumpadinka makeovers.” Well, there I sat on the couch in my black velour elastic waist MOM jogging suit. Feeling like a total shlumpadinka. I would post a pic of myself, but I am sure you can imagine what I look like b/c I have three of these great jogging suits that I wear all the time during the winter months. LOL! And I really look like a shlumpadinka in my clothes because I am a little, well, “fluffy” around the edges! I really gotta work on that.
I did so good last year. . . Weight Watchers, working out. . . losing weight. Although I have continued the working out part (see previous post about me and the skinny instructor having to be partners), I have just have no self-control when it comes to what I eat. And after Tracy’s post about gluttony (thanks for that one, Tracy). . . I guess I really need to get on the ball and start counting those WW points once again. UUGGHHH!!! Who wants to do that? But it really is a necessary evil, I suppose. So, if you have any GREAT Weight Watchers recipes to share, I’d love them. And I am going to start posting some recipes of my own. . . although it will be food that I can only probably eat about 3 tablespooons of if I am going to count my WW points. But they will be yummy and hopefully you and your family will enjoy them. As for the Lafayette’s, it’s back to steamed broccoli and grilled chicken – OH WAIT! We don’t have a grill – we live in an apartment! aaagggghhhh! I guess I can hike it over by the apt. pool and light up some charcoal and grill me some chicken. What a dork! Anyway. . . Spring is coming, followed by summer, which means all my cute skinny friends (which is ALL of you) will be looking adorable in your swimsuits while I actually “look” like a MOM in my shlumpadinka swimsuit. 🙂 The good news is that I am confident enough in who I am in Christ to know that how I look on the outside is not as important as how I look on the inside (thanks to my dad for instilling that important value in me)!
