SuperBowl, schmooperbowl. Ooh! They should call it THAT instead! How cute...

Ok. The money is gone. I think Lyn jinxed it. :P (You owe me $1.5 million now, Lyn. Small bills, please. I hate having to break $100’s.) Naw…really, the bank figured it all out, just as Lyn warned would happen. So we’re poor again. Aahhh…feels good. Just the way it should be.

I couldn’t stand it…after a week of watching calories veeerrryyy closely, and managing to stay below 1500 for 3 days (I had 1622 yesterday…oops!), I weighed myself this morning. And I’m down 3 pounds since the last time I weighed myself (which was last Wednesday - the 25th), thank God. I was gonna start performing mini-liposuction treatments using my vacuum at home if weight didn’t start coming off soon! But it seems that eating less was what was needed, which makes total sense. I’ve figured out that I was probably going well above the 1800 calories/day I thought I was eating for the past few weeks - watching calories closely like this has shown me just how wrong I had to have been. And it’s getting easier as the week goes on, too. I have a 300 calorie lunch today which will leave me room for 2 beers tonight, which will be nice. I’ve earned it. I’ve only had one glass of wine all week, dammit!

Who’s looking forward to the SuperBowl? I don’t give a flying shit about it, so there! As far as I’m concerned, either team could win and it’d be fine. I’ve already lost the office pool, and after the whole USC vs. Texas debacle, I’ve sworn off betting on sports for the rest of my life. Sunday will be a day of rolling about doing nothing, working out, and then heading to watch the game at the Moose with whomever decides to watch it there. Hopefully my friends will be there, and at least I’ll have a chance to hang out with them. That’ll make the day worth my while.

My coworker has what seems to be an appendicitis, and has been advised by the nurse on call for her benefits company to go to an emergency room. For some reason, she’s made an appointment to see a doctor at 1:30 today instead. I don’t get it. But it’s her body, so I guess it’ll just have to be what it is. Crazy silly girl. I hope it doesn’t burst…she looks like she’s in a BUNCH o’ pain. Maybe in another hour, she’ll change her mind. I dunno…

Hoping that today will be another short one, but there aren’t any guarantees on that, as I seem to have plenty of work piled on my plate for the day. Oh well…I was here a bit late last night, too. Makes up for all the days I run a bit late in the morning – which is pretty much every day! So I guess I owe it to them. This place is so laid back about that sort of shit, though, it’s awesome. No one has said a thing about my running late in the morning. I’m supposed to get here at 8, and I tend to get here between 8:05 and 8:15. I try! I do…but for some reason, no matter how early I get up, or how ahead of the game I am getting ready in the morning, something slows me down. This morning, I was on it. I had my lunch and my breakfast ready to go by 7 a.m. and went to wake the boyfriend up before I brushed my teeth. He got up, and then at about 7:20, he started talking about some work stuff. So we got caught up in this conversation about the shit that’s going on, and suddenly he realized he was late, and I still didn’t have any make-up on, and there it went. My little being-ahead-of-the-game bit was gone. I didn’t get out of the house until 7:50, and it’s pushing it for me to leave at 7:45! So I got to work late. Again. No biggy, though. Like I said, this place kicks ass…

Ok, enough with the boring rambling. I need to go find a coworker that needs a letter, and then get on with the day. I can’t believe it’s already 11! Everyone have a lovely Friday…

Looking forward to that cash. My tax refund this year was CRAP, so I could really use at least a million...:P
