Yeah, that was me. Pt. 2

25 Jun

Years ago I wrote a post that kind of made me giggle when I went back to re-read it today. I like it because it is just SO ME. You can read it here: http://thefourpates.com/2010/09/09/yeah-that-was-me/. So, I decided to do a part two today, just to get back into the blogging swing of things (and because my Ma commented that she missed me blogging (I mean, how sweet is that woman?)). Without further ado, Yeah that was me Pt. 2:

So, yeah that lady sweating profusely and turning red while Zumba’ing, that was probably me.

I was also probably that lady on the stationary bike who forgot to brush her teeth before hitting the gym at 5:30am, sue me…I’m barely awake.

Oh and the fatty in front of the fan during Zumba who accidentally tooted…yeah, that’d be me too. Just be happy I didn’t eat a bunch of eggs for my protein that day.

I’m probably also to blame for farting on the elliptical too…whoops. But everyone had in ear buds listening to music and it didn’t smell, so there’s that.

And let’s not forget that annoying sweaty lady working out her pecs who kept forgetting she wasn’t alone and had in ear buds singing a couple lines from a song, nope let’s not forget about her (cough…me).

So, yeah, that was all me but I’m also the sweatty, farty, singing lady who’s lost 23 lbs! Suck on that!


Big things brewin’

29 Apr

I feel like I have a lot of things on the burner right now.  Some are important…some not really important…and some not important at all.  But lots of things nonetheless.

Thing 1. And no it does not have blue hair and wear a red jumpsuit with a 1 circled on it. (If you don’t get that reference please for the love of all things holy grab Dr. Seuss’ book “The Cat in the Hat”!) Ooh, right…

Thing 1.  I’m applying for two jobs.  They are the same job but with different cities.  I won’t go into detail on this right now because it could bite me in the ass (e.g Dooce style).  But let’s just say it could really help financially.

Thing 2.  Again, not of the Seussian variety but pretty fun still.  I’m looking at a business venture. Even if one of the Thing 1 jobs comes through this is still something I could do sometimes.  I think it’ll be a lot of fun and I’ll get to meet some people!  I’ll tell you more when this comes to fruition, which should be soon.  But if you like wine you’ll LOVE this!

Thing 3.  I’m getting my blog redesigned.  Personalized and me…not some template from WP.  I’m not sure what it’ll look like yet since I won’t start working with the designer until June/July-ish.  But I so can’t wait!  My own spot on the internet that screams “Melanie”!  Wooo hoooooo!

Thing 4.  Shit, I can’t remember.  That’s bad.  I had something going on that wasn’t important and now it has flown from my head.  It REALLY musta not been important for me to forget what it was by the time I got to #4!  HA!

And just for an update I’m down a little over 11lbs since starting the diet.  Last week sucked, the scale only ticking down .9 notches…yeah not even a whole damn notch!  I totally will blame that on Aunt Flo, the bitch.  Now that she’s gone I hope to make up a little bit but I still feel very bloated and fat, so we’ll see tomorrow.
