And I was WIDE AWAKE.
Too….excited….to….sleep. Maggie woke me up at 5:30 to pee on the rug (WHY??? WHY??? I’m starting to think she has a health issue), and I just couldn’t go back to sleep.
I stumbled to the kitchen and was eating breakfast by 6:15.
A lovely, basic bowl of oatmeal….
I made the oatmeal a little larger than usual because (1) I woke up starving and (2) I got started early, hence I’ll need more fuel!
My oatmeal contained:
- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Topping: granola
And a cup of coffee…
Forecast for January 3, 2009

Last night I was thinking some random comments people have made about my appearance/health that really stuck with me.
I’ll never forget when my friend Lauren sat me down and told me I really either stop bitching about my weight or start eating healthily and exercising. It was blunt, but that ‘intervention’ changed my life!
I’ll also never forget when Future Husband told me that my "rounded tummy" reminded him of a Greek goddess! I used to pinch and prod my tummy, and after that, I loved it!
On the other side of the coin, one of my biggest pet peeves is FAT TALK — you know, when women say, "Oh, I’m so fat!" or "My ass looks HUGE in these pants." I find it so toxic to their and my self esteem. Just as the listener, I can’t help but be affected and find myself wondering if my butt is too fat, too!
What passing comments changed your mentality about your health, weight, or appearance? Do you engage in Fat Talk?
