xBox and Weight Loss

So, it's been pretty boring around here lately except for the Inauguration. Lucas has been glued to his xBox since Christmas, so he's been a lot of fun to hang out with. Not. Exhibit A:(Pardon the mess and the half dead houseplant. I can not keep plants alive. Lucas was apparently heartbroken about the fact that we don't own anything green, or alive, and he my mother teamed up to present with me a beautiful Juncus Spirales, a houseplant that thrives in bog and wetland like conditions. I forgot to water it for a week. This is EXACTLY why I didn't own plants. Sorry Juncus. It's not you, it's me.)

(Picture taken with my cell phone while trying not to laugh. I tell him constantly that he needs to back up, and I know it has nothing to do with his vision, because he can see me sneak a chocolate from 40 yards.)

Speaking of chocolate, a group of us on the night shift at work decided to start ourselves a Biggest Loser contest. Everyone who wanted in threw $25 bucks in the pot and the person with the largest percentage of weight loss at our 4/1 weigh in gets the money. I am down 9 pounds in three weeks. Apparently losing weight for my own health and well being is impossible, but losing it for chance to win $300+ bucks is totally doable. Whatever, I've got my eye on a pair of Frye boots, and they're not gonna buy themselves, so game on!
Hope you all had a lovely week, I'm off to drown my Juncus in some bog-like conditions.

Maybe a contest will get me off my butt! That's some serious weight loss, girl! Good luck.

And if that's considered messy. Yowza. You're never coming over my house.

liz: thanks! I want those Frye boots! ;)

SWM: Oh...the mess just miraculously managed to stay out of the shot. Really, I'd be horrified if someone ever showed up here unannounced...I am not a "cleaner". I'm a "hide everything in the coat closet" kind of gal!

Love the new layout, btw. Don't feel bad, I've lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks according to my wii fit. At least it gives you a hug and says "that's ok" when you fail.
