A Drive by Blogging

1) To answer suh-suh-suh-somethin’ from the comments, OH HELLSYA you may steal my buttons if you are Better Uing and want to pop em up on your own blog.

ALSO, if you are planning to BLOG your progress every week for Better tUesday, send me an EMAIL with your blog link and I will put a “Better Ya’lls” category on my Links page and remind peeps it is there every Tuesday. Below is a stealable button for this site and for GO RED...Steal away:

2) If you missed it, there’s a 3Q with Michelle Richmond below, and a drawing to win a signed copy of her latest (really super great) book. You have til midnight EST tonight to enter.

3) Scott and I were watching TV last night and a commercial---a not very good commercial --- for some kind of new Banana Nut flavored cereal came on.

Me: That commercial has not been over for thirty seconds and I already can’t remember if it is Cheerios that has Banana Nut flavor now or Mini Wheats.

Him: Me either.

Me: They need a better slogan.

*thinking pause*


Me: *dies laughing*

Dear Cheerios Ad Men (or possibly Mini Wheats Ad Men),

Scott will be here waiting for that million dollar check you owe him now.

Neither ‘Nannered nor Nutted

Oog, you are up too early again, woman. Did I not tell you this only increases the I'm-awake-and-longing-for-REAL-food hours? ;-)

hehehehhe but 3 am to 7 are my best working hours-- also I am about to go hit an early morning boot camp.

I'll nap later.

'Nannered nor 'nutted! Hahahaha! (wipes tears from eyes)

I sympathize, Brigitte: the only thing that seems to help me reduce my food consumption is to wait until HOURS after I am up to start. Then I can space it out nicely: 9 a.m. breakfast, 1 p.m. lunch, 5 p.m. dinner (OK, I rarely manage that) and somewhere between 9 and 10 p.m.: the all-important dessert.

15 pounds, MINIMUM. Food with nutrition, maybe even vitamins. Stretching and yoga really should happen, too.

Your husband is hilarious. You are lucky to live with someone of such humorous prowess. And I find I can't even remember what most commercials are for. Most commercials so dumb I mute them. Sometimes I make up my own words for the people talking. It is especially fun when you are slightly drunk.

I am searching for the paper that has all my numbers - had a bunch of bloodwork done last month, and promptly misplaced the stats.

I will post every Tuesday.

I will work out.

I will lose 15 pounds.

I will keep my whining to a minimum.

That's a whole lot of affirmation. I need a nap.

It was definitely Cheerios. I remember because I was thinking that might be the only possibility of them getting me to try their cereal. I'm a huge banana nut flavor fan. (Hugs)Indigo

You are BOTH hilarious!!

"Neither 'nannered nor nutted"! Hee hee hee! As for Scott's slogan, I bet EVERYONE would remember it!! (After all, it's tough to be Cheeri-O if you're 'nannered and NOT nutted!!)(Or vice versa...)

Tonight, I face the Tape Measure, my Nemesis. Again, let me just say: Moo.

Oh, do send the suggestion in! ROTFL.

I shall surely steal the button. It will act as a goad.

Your husband is hilarious.

VEREH funny. And I loved your little bloggity Better U video--your hair looked great and your eyes, they sparkled, and your timing was impeccable, though I'm NOT QUITE SURE that "happy-go-lucky" is a phrase I'd pick to describe you. Do they know about the undead priestess with the bones and all? Do they know that you wrecked up Vincent? Have they READ the novels???? The southern gothic novels with the kudzu covered bones and guns and rocks being thrown at unsuspecting people's heads and explosions that send butterflies raining down?

I have blogged my numbers at my weight-loss blog, Fat Man's Daughter, and I added a Better U category. I am so in your posse!

I want to lose 24 pounds (2 pounds a week for 12 weeks), and I need to since my BMI is 35.12 right now.

You can find my before numbers here:

Apparently, I don't know my own URL. Either that, or I can't spell daughter.

Just snorted iced tea through my nose. LOL

Dang, the lemon burns! Thanks a LOT, Scott!
