new questions thanks to Drazil... if you want to play along, you just copy and paste the q's into your own blog!
1. If you could be a cartoon character – who would you be and why?
ooo, this is a tough one... i guess i'd be spongebob... he seriously has the best life, just always chillin underwater with his pals... and he's silly acting, just like me... and he's cute :)
2. Who was your teenage heart throb?
DEFINITELY mark-paul gosselaar (zack) from saved by the bell.... HOT!! well, not so much nowadays, but smokin back then, baby!
3. Do you believe being overweight is about a mental obstacle or do you believe it’s simply about overeating/food?
seriously massive food addiction for me... i mean, if i hated food, or was picky like my sister is, i'd be ok... but NOPE, that's not me... i'll eat just about anything you put in front of me... or at least try it... i have no food allergies to hold me back either... there are some mental aspects to this, which come into pay when i binge, but mostly i just like the process of tasting and chewing and everything else...
4. What’s your all-time favorite song?
ummmmmmmm.. this is a tough questions because i LOVE music and have tons of favorite songs... i guess if i were completely forced to pick just one, i'd say 'if i ain't got you' by alicia keys... it's mine and my husband's song, and is what we danced to at our wedding... but seriously, i have about a thousand close runner-ups...
5. Whose blog or comment spoke to you/stuck with you this week and why? This is our “you get to be famous for a moment” without having to follow all the rules of an official blog award question.
i'm so sorry, but i can't remember who's blog this came from... if there is anyone out there that can remind me, please do so and i will adjust this post... but i read somewhere that someone's goal is to remind themselves that they won't starve before their next meal... like, if dinner's a little later than usual, nope, won't die... and that's what i've been keeping in mind all week... i tend to kind of freak when i don't eat dinner at a certain time... this is often where huge binges come in... i'll start by just grabbing a snack to tie myself over til dinner, and then BAM i've eaten us out of house and home... i'm not going to starve! there's no possible way! as a matter of fact i could probably live for quite some time without food, with all this extra flab i've accumulated... there, HA, that's finally one thing i've got over my sister... not only has she always been better at sports, and had straight teeth (which was a major issue for me all my life til i was finally given the chance to get braces), but she's always been skinnier, much skinnier actually, than me... but hey, if we were ever on a deserted island without food, i'd SO live longer than her!! lol....
anyways, i taught my aerobics class last night... add another 45 minutes to my activity points! but it wasn't lookin too nice out, so i didn't take my bike with me... and being that i didn't, i was unable to go on the ride i usually do (see, i'd have to go straight from the y to where everyone meets to ride if i want to go)... so i didn't ride my bike last night... that makes it pretty much a week since i've been on my bike, which is NOT good... it's been raining and yucky! but tonight and this weekend, i'm totally changing that... i HAVE to get some riding in if i'm going to make it through my 150 mile ride coming up in june!
i did start a little binge right after school yesterday, but i was able to keep it to a minimum and stop myself... i started with a pear, which led into some graham crackers and milk, and then i went for a bowl of cereal... that's where i stopped... i was pretty proud of myself... also, we went to dairy queen and i ate half my blizzard and put the rest into the freezer for later... i finally feel like i'm almost eating like a normal person! this focusing on the word ENOUGH is really doing wonders... makes me excited to see what i learn about at the next oa meeting on monday!
overall i don't have much to write about today... luckily i've been pretty steady emotionally (which makes my husband happy!) and relatively good with eating (though not the best and certainly not like i should be if i want to lose weight, but much better than it has been!)... my activity is going well (minus the lack of bike riding) and i have really nothing to complain about (well almost nothing, but i'm not going there, lol)... it's kinda nice for once :) i hope everyone has a great weekend, and i'll see everyone back here in blogland on monday!
