Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Part II - Definitely Doable

 I am pairing the Hot Guy Diet with my Shoe Workout. Much like the doable diets, this is one of the many ways I’ve contrived to work out without actually working out, like the time I decided I would lose weight if I just did everything faster (you have to admit, it makes sense).

With the Shoe Workout, you buy special shoes. There was a time I spent money on shoes that were NOT good for my feet or comfortable. Imagine! But now, shoes must either be extremely comfortable or promise to change my life for the better for me to spend much money on them. Supposedly wearing these is like a trip to the gym. And I can do that! I can wear shoes!

In fact, I am wearing them right now as I sit at my computer. Therefore I must be working out. With Brendan.

Whew. This is so much work, I may have to load up on carbs. Like from a croissant. If I open a program, Brendan won’t see.

And many enthusiastic thanks to Fran, who promptly responded with her own dietary motivator, pictured above. Good one, Fran. And to think I was going to post a picture of shoes.

  1. Forget the shoes, girlfriend, keep the pictures coming. I've been panting so hard it's like I've run a mile.

  2. LOL!!! Way to point out the aerobic benefits of the diet, Linda! Everyone knows deep breathing exercises are indeed healthful!

  3. Josh Holloway's green eyes will see each cookie and every piece of chocolate. His expression seems to say, "well don'tcha think I'm worth giving all that up? LOL

  4. I feel really "out of it" because I don't know this new guy! :/

  5. I didn't know who he was, either, Becky. But...oh, my. That IS better than cookies, huh?


Any return "messages" are appreciated!
